I've only heard 'if you tolerate this' from them, which I thought was quite cool.

Yes!!! Fucking amazing, saw them at Wembly and was right at the front - definately one of the best live bands I've seen, and they just have a totally different sound to anyone else. Probably my 3rd favourite band (1st being Green Day, 2nd being The Ordinary Boys) Favourite manics song - 'From despair to where'

:D

love them, but not the newer stuff, the richie james era stuff. The holy bible should be part of a childs education and generation terrorists is beautiful. If you have only heard newer stuff you really are missing out, oh and buy the book - everything (a book about the manic street preachers) ((thats its full name, not thinking your all stupid)) and read about the 'mad old days' of sex, drugs, self-injury and fooking rock - looking at the bunch of old men in suits they are now its easy to forget how they were

I totally agree, they've lost their way now and, much as it pains me to say it having been a devotee for so long, I think it's time they called it a day. The Holy Bible is amazing though, absolutely love it. Great to see a Richey pic in this week's Kerrang too...

It is nice, sometimes it seems the whole worlds forgot him. Im sure he's still alive. he's such a chameleon he could probably be living in the UK nooone would notice! I agree about calling it a day too, sometimes its best to leave your marks as a musician and then leave it before it gets tainted. They had there glory days, but anytime you talk about the manics most people think off 'tolerate this' or 'richard nixon'. Thats the sadest part in my opinion, they should be remembered as the rockin superstars they were! i mean, you dont see bloody good charlotte or maximo park cutting 4real into there arms to prove a point do you??!!

Absolutely. Even though Richey may not have been the most skilled musician, it was in his soul. The 4Real incident was such an amazing statement to make, and it's such a part of recent rock history now. I always feel a little proud whenever a magazine article asks if a band is '4Real' cos I know it's a Manics reference :laugh:

It would be so cool to rewind back to the glory days of the first three albums (yes even Gold Against the Soul when James sounds like Rod Stewart :laugh: )

i totally agree, the music, especially the lyrics was who he was, it was in his soul. he had al the charterists of a genius, even down to the potential madness. Even if he is dead, his style and influence will live on forever. true hero in my eyes. And yes, gold against the soul did have its moments! even Everything must go (if thats the album name, cant quite remember) has richie influences, such as the lyrics in little black flowers.

Get 'em both, they're both fantastic albums...But if you have to choose one, I'd say The Holy Bible, just because there's nothing else like it. As long as you like very dark lyrics...

Well I finally got The Holy Bible the other week, it's barely come out of my player since. One of those albums where you just sit down and get pretty much mesmerised by it.

And seeing as it hadn't really happened when this thread was first made, what does everyone think of James's solo stuff? I bought the two singles but haven't got the album, though I might next time I have some money.
