I imagine that's the same demographic that actually spends the most money on music (CDs and vinyls etc), so they should just team up with her again and it would be great for business!

Just noticed that John Niven's (who co-wrote the lyrics for James's album) book Kill Your Friends has been made into a film. He also wrote the screenplay. Doesn't appear to have anything else Manics related to it other than co-staring Craig Roberts (Show Me the Wonder video).

May of been a good opportunity for them to do some soundtrack work.

This advert reminds me of the Everlasting video : http://youtu.be/domnInfxnC4

Nice of Wire to donate a thousand pounds to the Velindre charity hike.

Listening to my Japanese import of Everything Must Go. For some reason this is the only Japanese Manics album to not have the bonus tracks stuck on the end, with No-One Knows What It's Like To Be Me stuck in after The Girl Who Wanted To Be God and Black Garden chucked in after Interiors..

If they take EMG20 to Japan, surely they're obliged to play it this way...?

That said, the Japanese National Treasures thing was bollocks only saying so cos I wasn't there

Singles in Japan:

Stay Beautiful
You Love Us
Motorcycle Emptiness
Theme From MASH
Little Baby Nothing
From Despair To Where
La Tristesse Durera
Roses In The Hospital
Faster/PCP
A Design For Life
Everything Must Go
Further Away
If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next
You Stole The Sun From My Heart
Nobody Loved You
Forever Delayed

Not singles in Japan but played anyway:

Suicide Alley
New Art Riot
Motown Junk (although it's on their Stay Beautiful single if they want to count it..)
Love's Sweet Exile
Slash N' Burn
Life Becoming A Landslide
Revol
She Is Suffering
Kevin Carter
Australia
The Everlasting
Tsunami
The Masses Against The Classes
Found That Soul
So Why So Sad
Ocean Spray
Your Love Alone Is Not Enough
Autumnsong
Indian Summer
It's Not War Just The End Of Love
Some Kind Of Nothingness
Postcards From A Young Man
This Is The Day



What is this madness?

They didn't even play every UK single at a singles gig, can't take 'em too seriously!

sculptureofabloke 13-11-2015 12:19

True, but it's quite a leap between not playing two, (well four if we're counting the AA sides) and playing 23 that aren't...

Takk 13-11-2015 12:39

Surely they just played the uk singles and threw in a couple of extras.

sculptureofabloke 13-11-2015 12:40

But UK singles aren't always singles in Japan...

Lord Revan 14-11-2015 18:04

Anyone know which font is used for the EMG cover?

Edit: I asked on another forum and the answer I got was Helvetica Neue Condensed Bold.

Always wondered why Nobody Loved You was released as a single in Japan.

Anyone know?

Wasn't it released in Japan instead of "The Everlasting"? Still no idea why they did it like that.
