Random Manics thoughts...
 
Do you sometimes have an idea that doesn't fit to any of the threads or you think it's silly to dig out one of the old ones? pointless to create a new one? or are you confused and don't know whether to write this either in Manics discussion or in Random Thoughts?
it doesn't have to be controversial, just a thought you'd like to share!

I'll start!

Reasons why Autumnsong is a bad song:
- 90% of the lyrics
- over-produced
- there's no Nicky (or other band members) in the video


EDIT
Please, move it to MSP Discussion general board.

Great idea for a thread :D I'll move it over.

Oh my! i was just thinking about this the other day that a Random Thoughts Manics thread would be class. Cos I had a random thought but didn't wanna start a new thread for it. I can't mind now what the thought was though!!!!

The Gutless Wonder 20-05-2011 07:43

Why does the cuddly bulldog in the front of their tourbus want to be left alone? That's what I wanna know! :lol:

allisvanity 20-05-2011 08:12

I can't wait for Cardiff on saturday knowing that we are possibly going to get Of Walking Abortion and Solitude Sometimes Is! Who knows if they have anything special planned for their home-town show as well?

Deets 20-05-2011 17:52

Greatest Hits tour is a good idea only if the setlist includes songs like Richard Nixon, Empty Souls, solo singles and stuff ommited on FD, LIKE STAY BEAUTIFUL FFS!!!

yeah I'll buy the cd and go on the tour anyway...

Cos he looks like Phil and you don't mess with Phil, get on the right side of him and he'll be your friend for life, get on the wrong side of him and ...well...he'll run you over.

Little Troll 21-05-2011 09:00

This is a good idea! I had a thought the other day which I didn't think fitted into any of the threads which this would have been perfect for. Unfortunately, I've now forgotten it. Never mind.

I was thinking of getting a tattoo with it/part of it, one day.

I think that when they play Kevin Carter live Sean should actually play trumpet, it'd be great

in the past there were petitions signed in the queues before the gigs to make Sean to play on trumpet.

Still find it hilarious that my dad didn't know who Nicky Wire is, even after the amount I go on about him, yet he knew who Simon Price was and thought Simon Price was the Manics' bassist!

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...

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

:lol: good plan!

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.

pingu 21-05-2011 20:27

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

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

meganslastwords 21-05-2011 22:05

if james got laryngitis again, rather than cancelling shows nicky should sing ;)

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

No prob :D But yet, you know, I have so many ideas for a tattoo...maybe I'll just end up with some awful dolphin so people will think I'm sensitive (nope, I'm sorry, I could never...)

No, a Dolphin would be cool too, especially if you call it 'Flipper'.
