Also, really wish I hadn't lent my mum my copy of The Holy Bible. Thought she wouldn't like it but lent it to her anyway because she asked and now she's listening to it on repeat on her iPod and singing a long to Faster and Revol at the top of her voice and very out of tune...

yr ma's cool. Yr dad... less so :p

Ahaha, I'm not sure I can describe either of them as 'cool'. They're both rather odd and my mother has an irritating habit of taking all my CDs then ruining them all for me with her awful singing... :D

hummingbird 21-05-2011 12:17

oh u cant ruin the holy bible. Impossible. well unless she sings along to intense humming of evil..don't like that :)

Little Troll 21-05-2011 12:25

She's definitely ruined SATT already. I could only listen to about half the album as it was but now I can't even listen to that! Thank god she didn't really like GT because I'd be really upset if she did it to that too :P

hummingbird 21-05-2011 12:28

be a rebellious teen and wipe her ipod in revenge :D

Little Troll 21-05-2011 12:39

Why, just why!! :cry:



My random: pointless Manics trivia really, but the last 3 lead singles off the last 3 albums all have the word 'love' in the title. Coincidence? Yeah, probably.

I still think it's a pity that there's no 'spring' song on SATT.

It's the Wire, he's a soppy sod.

You've probably all read my rants of late concerning the Manics leaving out songs from Journal For Plague Lovers on the latest tour. I was thinking about it some more earlier and I suddenly remembered the whole debacle where James and Nicky had a falling out over whether or not to release JFPL. Nicky (for reasons I don't fully understand) got cold feet about the album and begged James to just dump it, bury it in his garden (in the same place he buried the corpse of Derek Jarman) but James was having none of it. And according to James they fell out over it for a while. Now they're touring again and playing songs from every album except for JFPL and part of me has begun to wonder if this isn't Nicky's doing based on his original hesitations over releasing the album.

11 gigs so far this year and in that time they've played "Me and Stephen Hawking" twice and "Marlon J.D." once. I don't understand it, I really do not.

the original plan was to just release the album and not tour it at all. Think they were worried that if they treated it like a normal release then people would accuse them of cashing in on Richey's memory. The album was so well received it must've changed their minds. A special album deserves special gigs so we got the whole lot. Now i think they still want to keep it that way but because we're wanting to hear the songs again they're chucking them in every so often.

Just play em Manics. They're too good to put away

Because I feel like...like it's me :smile: It's like a painting of what/who I am. That's why I don't find it dull at all. Because I don't think I'm dull. (even if it sounds quite arrogant :smile:)
