The Great Western and its bsides are so so so much better than anything the Manics have done since Lifeblood (JFPL aside)

Except Say Hello To The Pope. Bad song. But better than Autumnsong.

Lol I was just about to agree with you on your first post but then I read this, I think say Hello to the Pope the best song any of them done since Lifeblood:D

I like the music but not the lyrics.

Littlesue 17-03-2014 07:10

I like the lyrics because its story telling for a change, one of the few Manic songs I can understand lyrically

"Masses Against the Classes" is a grunge song and/or could've been written by the Foo Fighters

I'm not sure if I am actually excited about the forthcoming tour or merely going through the motions.

Or is that just the band?

With the events in the Crimea and Russia, I can't help but imagine James and Nicky on pushbikes peddling round to each venue and crossing out the backwards "R" on the posters.
"Let's bring back the backwards 'R' he said... It'll be iconic he said..."
"Oh shut up and scribble! We've got the whole of Europe to do after we finish the ones in the UK!"

The Great Western II has been cancelled due to industrial action on behalf of the RMT

On a whim I decided to watch the No Manifesto trailers & outtakes on YouTube and there's one I'd previously missed, just 40 seconds of Nicky noodling away on his bass. In perhaps the only time I've ever had cause to thank the usually moronic/unreadable user comments, someone identified that he's playing Strawberry Switchblade's 'Since Yesterday'. Having not heard it (and only being vaguely aware of the band) I've been listening to it, and it really is a fucking lovely slice of mid 80's indie-inclined pop music. Very Nicky Wire. How well known is it?

Can't answer for you, but my case it's the band.

Looking forward to traveling to the gigs with my friends more than to the actual gigs.
(but a tiny part of me hopes the Manics will win me over again on this tour. I won't buy the album.)

I cannot wait for any music from the album to appear!

Today my German teacher corrected me in my homework, as I had put Nicky as male. She thought he was female… I almost died laughing. But in her defence, the picture of Nicky in my homework was him in that flowery dress.

Ehehehe. Yeah, that's pretty funny.
