A new year always throws up some mouth mob with more than their fair share of gobshite. Manic Street Preachers have been quietly laying the foundations for their assault on the nation's pop sensibilities for a year or so, touring numerous toilets on the live circuit, spending their free time perfecting post-Clash sloganeering and messing up their big sisters' cast-offs with dodgy do-it-yourself fabric pens from the local Woolies. So now we have to take their music (remember that?) seriously, it seems. Youthful, crash bang wallop pop that's a million mles away from last year's bag, this is the sound of teenage South Wales for the post-Darling Buds generation. Nick, Sean, James and Richie release their single 'Motown Junk' next week and it probably won't get the, onto 'Top Of The Pops'.

If you're too young to remember Stiff Little Fingers, The Ruts, The Lurkers and The Boys, your legs resemble pipe cleaners and your sister wouldn't miss her mascara for a night, then please embrace Manic Street Preachers - the only ones! Punk lives?
