anyone heard about this before i just started getting into the Manic Street Preachers and read this its Nicks controversial comment “In this season of goodwill, let’s pray that Michael Stipe goes the same way as Freddie Mercury pretty soon.” what's with him ?


that's enough about me, now, what do you think of me ?

I don't think the comment was particularly against Freddie, or an attack on him... more so on Stripe. He was just being controversial to make up for his huge lack of talent. Surprised a bigger deal wasn't made of his comments.

I remember him saying that and it really pissed me of because R.E.M AND Queen are 2 of my fav bands,but Micheal Stipe and Nicky Wire have since met(at the 1999 or 2000 Q Awards)And he apologised.It was a nasty thing to say tho.

Nicky Wire is a wonderful guy and I've met him. The Manics happen to be one of my other favourite bands (as you may have guessed) and Nicky was just being an immature young idiot - he's changed a lot since then, believe me.

Can't say I care much about REM though.

The Cuba DVD is pretty good - however, if you haven't already got them then I fully recommend you to get the Manic Millenium DVD and the Everything Live video (or the DVD if you can find it) - both of these are way better than the Cuba gig!

Big shame that their latest album wasn't a bigger hit as it's probably their best to date (in my opinion!)

The first hald of Lifeblood was great, the rest was a bit shit. I also thought the mixing of the album misses some much needed ambience (Empty Souls being an exception). When they did Lamacq Live the ambience was there and songs such as Song For Departure and To Repel Ghosts sounded great.

Their new EP, God Save The Manics is cack though.

YAWN, he can't be very good at what he does if I've never heard of him.

Firstly - must disagree with you on the GSTM EP - I think Firefight is a great song, though A Secret Society won't please a lot of people with its gothic style - and I think Pictureseque is a great song.

Secondly, I think Lifeblood is excellent with the exception of a couple of songs which were poorly produced - those being Solitude Sometimes Is (was the track I was looking forward to the most after the IOW gig) and Glasnost - both of which I absolutely hate listening to. The Lamacq live gig was great and the songs really shone through but they should have played Cardiff Afterlife at that gig - best song they have done in ages (probably ever). Also, The Soulmates was scandalously missed off the album release and wasn't even given a chance as a b-side thanks to the record company only letting them release two singles!

Still, I'm more than happy to have those other 10 new songs on those two singles... Very few artists will do that. :P

"no but he speaks very highly of you"

What on earth are you on about?

I'm being extremely predjudicial here, but I wager $40 that if I took five minutes to find out what this guy did, I'd probably find he's not very good, or that he's aimed at a lower brow audience or whatever.

Seriously - "Nicky Wire"? Who cares if he's 'grown up' in ten years? What that really means is he hasn't grown at all, he just says this shit when the cameras are off instead.
