'Despair, Inspiration, Happiness, Despair, Work, Inspiration, Sport. That's The Crux Of It' - NME, 1st August 1998


The secret world of Manic Street Preachers revealed.

January 1, 1990 and the first ‘Preposterous Statement For The Day’ reads: "We want to be the most important reference point of the 1990s, that’s all" – James Dean Bradfield, singer-songsmith with some glam-punk gonks called Manic Street Preachers. "We didn’t achieve much of our original manifesto," muses Nicky Wire in ’98, contemplating their dynamic ambitions, "but one thing we always said we wanted to be was the most important rock band of the decade – and I think that’s the one thing we probably have achieved."

You feel you’ve actually done it?

"Yeah. I do." (more...)
