MSP - Great Lost Singles / Rarities Comps & Songs Rarely Played Live Fantasy Setlist

Hi Everyone,

Some other recent R*E*P*E*A*T social media posts which proved popular with MSP Fans, were the following and so we thought that we'd post here just in case any FD Forum users would also like to have a go.

Firstly, we simply asked: "If you had to put together a 'Great Lost Singles' compilation (picking only 1 song from each studio album). And then, as a companion-piece to this record, curate a brand new 25trk Double LP of b-sides / rarities as a follow-up to Lipstick Traces (excluding any songs already included on that album) - which tracks would you choose?"

Here are our choices and long player titles...

Manic Street Preachers: 'History Reprised - The Great Lost Singles'

1. Let's Go To War
2. Peeled Apples
3. Sleepflower
4. Ready For Drowning
5. This Sullen Welsh Heart
6. Yes
7. Broken Algorithms
8. 1985
9. No Surface All Feeling
10. Baby Elian
11. The Second Great Depression
12. Methadone Pretty
13. Golden Platitudes

Manic Street Preachers: 'Otherness - Hidden Gems'

CD 1
1. Firefight
2. Empty Motorcade
3. Black Holes For The Young
4. Antarctic
5. Broken Up Again
6. It's All Gone
7. Starlover
8. Locust Valley
9. Picturesque
10. Concrete Fields
11. Never Want Again
12. Everything Will Be

CD 2
1. Ballad Of The Bangkok Novotel
2. Automatik Teknicolour
3. The Soulmates
4. Melancholyme
5. Holding Patterns
6. Before I Leave
7. (Feels Like) Heaven (Fiction Factory Cover)
8. Hibernation
9. The Girl From Tiger Bay (JDB Version)
10. What Happened To The Blue Generation
11. Blistered Mirrors
12. No Jubilees
13. Fearless Punk Ballad

Next, as a follow-up to these tweets, we asked fans: "Which rarely performed MSP tracks, as well as songs never before played live, would you most love to hear as part of a one-off setlist?"

Using 2011's 'A Night Of National Treasures' as a template, we allowed ourselves a whopping 38 tracks, but taking into account previous Album Anniversary Tours however, songs from The Holy Bible, Everything Must Go and This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours LPs, were not shortlisted for this particular show.

We titled this epic Bruce Springsteen-esque gig, 'Out Of The Shadows', as the vast majority of these tracks have only ever been played live a small amount of times, or, never at all.

Thank you for your time & Stay Beautiful,
