Apparently Nick Abbott slagged off the Manics last night on LBC, saying that he hated them and he was glad they were on tour because they were all in one place, preferably far from him!

I reeeeeeally want some of the KYE magnets. Or some new edgier merch.

I really like this I saw on google images - is it official?

That was my response - so I looked up his (obviously self-penned) wiki page. Wow, he really takes himself seriously

As for new merchandise, I remember a thread of suggestions way back in 2001. I still think the inflatable MSP beach ball would be a winner - purple leopard print with one black panel that has purple text proclaiming, "Enjoy your beach ball, but remember we are all moving inexorably toward the black void of death."

Even after all these years, whenever I check back through the band's discography I'm still amazed at some of the songs they put out as singles (and which b-sides never make it to albums, and which album tracks do), especially since TIMTTMY.

Exhibit A: The Everlasting. (Surely Ready For Drowning or Nobody Loved You - which actually was a single in Japan - would have been better?)

Exhibit B: Found That Soul.

Exhibit C: So Why So Sad.

Exhibit D: The Love Of Richard Nixon.

Exhibit E: Autumnsong...

...etc etc.

Europa Geht Durch Mich wasn't even released as a single! Unfathomable.

Sorry - just needed to get that out of my system, given how important the band consider singles to be.

Something seemed to shift after TIMTTMY. (Incidentally, I always found it odd that Masses Against The Classes was a great single but - bizarrely - wasn't included on KYE.)

Since TIMTTMY the only singles that I feel were truly stand-out worthy of being selected as singles from their respective albums were Ocean Spray, Indian Summer, (It's Not War) Just The End Of Love and Walk Me To The Bridge - four out of twenty (or out of eighteen if we exclude Underdogs and Ghost of Christmas).
