From Despair To Where - Melody Maker, 31st May 1997
|Title:||From Despair To Where|
|Date:||Saturday 31st May 1997|
Manic Street Preachers' James Dean Bradfield is the only person ever to have sworn on "The Breakfast Show" on Radio 1 - and he has now said "fuck" twice in as many months. His latest slip came last Monday (May 19) while he was competing by phone in Mark Radcliffe's early-morning quiz, "We Love Us", a play on the Manics' "You Love Us". Every week, a different band is put on the hot spot and, each morning, one member of the band is asked five questions about their own career. Question one caused Bradfield no problems: "Name the photographer responsible for the photos on the sleeve of 'Gold Against The Soul'." The answer was Mitch Ikeda. Number two seemed easy: "In December in 1996, you had three gigs in London. Can you remember the venues?" Bradfleld answered correctly, "Kentish Town Forum, Shepherd's Bush Empire and Brixton Academy". The third, also, was a cinch - "Name the last four tracks on 'Generation Terrorists'." The answers, of course,
were "Crucifix Kiss", "Methadone Pretty", "Condemned To Rock'n'Roll" and "Democracy Coma".
