Just an observation

The cousins that are Manic Street Preachers. New album out. Seen a couple of interviews this past week.

Hmm, OK.

Of course, the vanishing of Richie doesn’t define them. As they themselves say, it shouldn’t define them either. It was three decades back, done, dusted, gone.

Which is presumably why both interviews rest heavily on the events of thirty years ago and the vanishing of Richie….

  1. Of course: that’s the last time they did anything good 🙂

    I went to college with them. So it’s probably my fault

  2. The band that did ‘If you tolerate this your children will be next’ that includes a line about being allowed to shoot rabbits but not fascists

    I’m surprised it’s not a woke anthem these days

  3. I had to look them up – from WKPD:

    They form a key part of the 1990s Welsh Cool Cymru cultural movement.

    There was such a thing?!?
    Who knew?

  4. Stereophonics are much better, Kelly Jones live album Don’t let the devil take another day is great with lots of little stories about the songs and how they got to open for the Stones and touring with Bowie and memories of his friend and ex-band member Stuart Cable who died
