Seeing that video of a small but vocal group of people at the gates of buck-house shouting after andy means another play of We Her Majesty's Prisoners. Shame I'll probably be linking to a doctored or historic video.

We Her Majesty's Prisoners is a banging choon. I accept I'm venturing into dodgy territory with that link. apols

For some reason, when I'm in a p*ssed off mood I often end up singing an angry version of There By The Grace of God, despite the fact it is actually one of the least angry Manics songs. I'd love to see it tried out in a more rocking style sometime.

Tonight it finally happens.... the Manics are part of a Tim's twitter album party.... in that they're doing the Help compulsion album that they contributed Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head. I suspect none of the Manics will be participating, but will be interesting if there are any anecdote about their first post Richey recording.

Positive comments yay. Most mention it surprised them as not an angry song. Also lyrics poignant considering what happened. I remember thinking the same at the time.

Great compilation overall.

Pink Floyd have agreed to a deal of 500 and 1000 piece Jigsaw puzzles of selected album covers.
You might be a Jigsaw freak. Go for it! I can start but not finish.
But it would be impossible to do Jigsaw puzzles of Manics album covers?
Sure, you'd get the words of the songs and Strategy South Face/Front Face/North Face right. But what are you going to do with all those white pieces for THB?
EMG Jigsaw puzzle creators must surely deserve to be up in front of the Hague for doing that.
I think it's only KYE that's distinctive enough to survive a Jigsaw process. But as it's not their original image so that's the copyright triggered.
Hahahaha! IKTZ Jigsaw puzzle!
Although the red on EIE has some distinctive splashes?

JFPL would be a nice one. The best looking jigsaw for the best looking album.

Routine Builder 10-09-2020 10:38

Generation Terrorist would just be horrid....

IntlDebris 10-09-2020 23:52

Rewind the Film would be fun. "Here's yet another bluey-grey bit... where do you think this goes?"

How about one igsaw with all the album covers ?

“The fragments fail to hold me...”

Lifeblood had in-built jigsaw insouciance from the beginning... :lol:

I'm holding out for THB and GT era funko pops.

I may be waiting a while .........

Just seen this advertised on Facebook... Manics headlining with Sophie Ellis Bextor next on the bill. Black Holes for the Young anybody?

The jigsaw breaks again and it can't be fixed

I feel like I'm missing pieces of sleep...

Ah those manic street puzzlers

A billion balconies facing the sun would be a good Christmas present for someone you disliked or maybe a way to while away a lockdown Christmas... From despair to where....baby

I'd love for the Manics to do a cover of Pierre Bachelet's Les Corons...
