Also thinking about different interpretations of the phrase 'gold against the soul'.

I always took that phrase to mean the struggle to stay true to one's self in the context of having to earn money i.e. how long can you last before you compromise your principles?

Are Mothers Saints? is better than Patrick Bateman for end guitar solo.

Just found this tonight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7vWCiPt_Nk

That festival in 1996 was my first 'contact' with Manics and the interview is with Much Music, the Canadian music channel, so I was really delighted to see this.

It includes clips from the show at Toronto's Opera House in 1992 - it is clear that Nicky was lying when he recalled, at the recent Toronto show, that there were only about four people there on that night (same banter every night in North America, maybe?). The video proves there was a full mosh pit in effect!

Found two Manics Interview CDs in a charity shop today (though I have them so didn't buy them). Probably the most interesting manics related CD I've seen in a charity shop in a while. See plenty of copies of Truth and EMG and occasionally some of the other early albums. Started looking in the vinyl sections again recently so hopefully I'll one day come across some singles or albums cheap if they don't price them up too much.

Never noticed before now that Empty Souls and New Year's Day by U2 have the same kind of vibe to them.

Casually wondering whether Nicky was a student communist or anarchist.

Quote:

If I met the 16-year-old me I think I’d like him. He’s opinionated but still quite withdrawn. He’s excited by the possibility of life. In a few years he’ll become more rampant, he’ll talk in extremes. I can totally understand now why my dad would shake his head and tell me to shut up, in the most loving way. By then I was full of talk about how my band would rule the world. I had these strong, harsh political views, I talked a lot about ‘year zero’. We thought it was intellectual nihilism but a lot of it was just shock-value stuff. I think the post-uni Nicky would deeply annoy the older me.

Muahahaha I just posted this in the wrong thread -

I'm totally freaking out over what to wear for Edinburgh

Son of Stopped 31-05-2015 15:21

I was going to make it a thread, but how much of a monster is "Walk me To The Bridge" live?
Really hope it becomes a regular in their sets.
And it seems like only yesterday when we were laughing about it sounding a bit like "Yellow Pearl"! (which is itself a great track anyway)

Loving the bass line in the verse of Interiors. :cool:

I think most of Lifeblood has a U2 vibe to it, and not in a bad, hacky way either.

The middle bit of Black Square sounds a whole lot like Boy/October-era U2. It's cool, I love those albums.
