Most likely the only people who don't already have this are people who are not Manics fans so...
The Manic Street Preachers are a Welsh rock band. Their charismatic member, Richey Edwards, disappeared in 1995. The band's output can -- if you must -- be split into two halves: the 4-piece stuff with Richey which is (typically) punkier -- like "Motown Junk" (1991) -- and the 3-piece stuff which is like U2 without the religious bits or the bombast.
At some point it seemed as if there were 2 types of Manics fans: the Richey ones and the other ones. But the truth is that they are my favorite band and I love every era of their stuff. "Motown Junk" easily bumps up against the later "Rendition" on my iPod so I don't quite get the division among their fans. But then again, I have only been listening to them intently since about 1998.
Richey may be gone but the Manics can't shake his ghost.
