I Love The Manic Street Preachers


Thirteen years on -- (well, I heard 1996's Everything Must Go when it was first released but didn't *get* it; same with 1992's "You Love Us" on a comp.; I didn't jump on the Manics bandwagon until -- blush -- 1998 when "You Stole The Sun From My Heart" was climbing up the UK charts) -- and I'm still listening to the Manic Street Preachers quite a few times every week.

I listen to stuff from every era of the band and I love The Holy Bible (1994) *AND* Lifeblood (2004) in equal measure.

The band's career-spanning hits collection National Treasures came out on Monday and it's even available as a download on Amazon.com in the States!

Gonna download "This Is The Day" today.

Already got all the other tunes, obviously.

Here are two recent clips of the band.

A fantastic interview with James Dean Bradfield and Nicky Wire via Absolute Radio...
