I think UEF meant musically, that doesn't make it bad though. Plus, the Manics were pretty pretentious anyways

They're still pretty bad though.

(albeit mostly so bad it's good/amusing)

20TH ANNIVERSARY RE-RELEASE OF GENERATION TERRORISTS


To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of its release, the MANIC STREET PREACHERS are re-issuing their legendary 18 track debut album ‘Generation Terrorists’ on 5th November 2012.
The double album will be available as:

1. Anniversary Edition – 1CD
2. Legacy Edition – 2CD/DVD
3. Limited Edition Collector’s Edition – 3CD/DVD/Book/10” Vinyl
4. 12” 180g double vinyl gatefold LP
5. Download

Featuring the entire original album re-mastered; unheard exclusive songs and demos; unseen film footage and home movies; unique artwork from the MSP archive; rare and unseen photos; legendary tv performances and a new essay from band biographer Simon Price, each format is a beautifully packaged piece of memorabilia for Manics fans old and new.

On the albums initial release in February 1992 it was seen as a statement of intent – a debut double album filled with iconic tracks that would go on to become firm favourites still played at shows today. Of course, most people already had an opinion of these glam-punk South Wales upstarts before hearing it, their incendiary interviews and outlandish live appearance invoking outrage and devotion in equal measure. The singles ‘New Art Riot’, ‘Motown Junk’, and ‘You Love Us’ had introduced the music press and radio to a new sound totally unlike the grunge and shoegazing bands dominating the headlines. Dismissed by some as nothing more than publicity junkies, the release of ‘Generation Terrorists’ saw the Manics transcend the hype and make their mark as one of the most important British rock bands of the last two decades.

Comprising of cult favourites and classic singles, the album saw the band showcase their vitriolic and fiercely intelligent lyrics, sophisticated songwriting and musicianship. Opener ‘Slash ‘N’ Burn’ showcased Bradfield’s jaw-dropping guitar skills; the group brought in Public Enemy’s production squad The Bomb Squad to remix ‘Repeat’; ‘Nat West – Barclays – Midlands – Lloyds’ was a swipe at the banking industry that seems more relevant now than ever. Former porn-star Traci Lords joined on vocals for ‘Little Baby Nothing’ establishing the tradition of Manics duets and of course, ‘Motorcycle Emptiness’ – still one of the Manics greatest moments – through the confusion and criticisms as to whether they were ‘4 Real’ – this track silenced the doubters and became a true rock classic which still sounds as thrilling and relevant now as on it’s release.

The band ended 2011 with the release of the singles collection ‘National Treasures’ and an epic sold-out Christmas show at the O2 in London where they played all 38 songs from the album. Having played a European tour and several dates in the Fast East in 2012 they are currently working on their eleventh studio album.

“They have more energy, anger and intelligence than any band I have ever seen. By the end of the year they will be the most important rock band in the world”
Steven Wells, NME

“All my life I’ve been waiting for a band like the Manic Street Preachers to come along”
Everett True, Melody Maker
A
“’Generation Terrorists’ will be the most awesome and scandalous rock record of 1992”
Amy Raphael, NME

Ah well, there goes the bank balance. Which edition comes with Richey's toe nail clippings?

Sod's sake, why does that 3-CD version have to come with some bloody vinyl that's going to waste my shelf space. That is, if I'm going to get the 3CD one - depends on the price and the contents of the additional CD (here's hoping all the interesting stuff is on CD2 and the CD3 will just be some live faffle).

This is excellent news. Think I'll be getting the bok and the 12", don't actually own an LP of GT.

Very surprised if there will actually be any 'unheard' songs but they can get away with calling the likes of Faceless Sense of Void 'previously unreleased'.

I'll be getting whatever is worth getting.
