Sexy? - Select, September 1994


To the Manic Street Preachers, all human experience is an empty futility…so why should pornography be singled out for condemnation? Miranda Sawyer talks filth with the prophets of nothingness.

The picture is of a woman. She stands in white bra and knickers, looking down at the viewer with an expression that is difficult to read. A look of disdain? Of boredom? Is she laughing at you? She has short brown hair and she is massive. Hugely, violent, wildly fat. In places her skin is so stretched you can almost see through it, mottled and grey with purplish veins, rubbery flesh rolling and sagging and hanging from her towering body like so many yards of uncooked bread. She's on the cover of 'The Holy Bible', the Manic Street Preachers' third album.

Richey saw the picture in a magazine- it's currently on gargantuan display in the Saatchi art gallery- and phoned up the artist, 24 year old Jenny Saville, to ask if the Manics could use it. Although he'd asked to use a Saatchi painting before and had been told that it would cost #30,000, he tried anyway. After a detailed half-hour explanation of every track on the album, Jenny agreed to let them use it for free. (more...)
