Welsh rockers' 1992 debut bags the gong.
No one ever quite proclaimed Generation Terrorists' genius as strongly as yourselves. Do you feel an air of vindication?
Nicky Wire: It just feels fun, to be honest, when it comes on and you see the videos and the daftness of it - trying to mix Karl Marx with Hanoi Rocks. It was an entry point for a lot of Manics fans, there was less baggage, less of the bigness of Everything Must Go or the darkness of The Holy Bible.
Kylie's here. Have you reminded her that she refused your offer to be a guest vocalist on it?
NW: Ha ha, we've made our peace!
How would the Generation Terrorists-era Manics have behaved at today's Awards?
NW: Well, we would've been off our faces. We had one similar in Dublin in '92; James ended up with his top off screaming at the bouncer, I was trying to kiss loads of bouncers. It's how it should be. You're only young once. I'd still like to be a pissed-up horrible fucker.
