let's hope that guy who is always going on about the Manics goes the same way as Freddy Mercury!!!"
Rest of band: "Er... please leave.."
Peter Buck: "I'm gonna get on a plane to Wales and punch this guy's face in!"
from balonz to lucien and from lucien to balonz, and from balonz to lucien again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.
everyone knows my name's Balo and I'm from NZ.
Pretty fucking obvious people
are one of the worst bands to have ever existed. Beige rock. Even the stuff pre-Richie, which for some reason people reckon is different or better - is still utter shite.
A proper terrible band that has contributed nothing of note to the world of music on any level.
And Nicky Wire is a prick. And the fat boring singer is a shit.
Shit. They're literally everything that's wrong with the entire world. That band. Every problem to have ever existed leads back to them, or they're at least a metaphor for it.
Every cunt you've ever, preaching in the pub about musicology, or politics, or thinking they're cool, that's the Manic Street Preachers, but as a guy, not a band. But it's still them. Motorcycle Emptiness / Love of Richard Nixon utter cuntflaps. The holy Bible of SHIT. Oceanspray CUNTS.
If I had a time machine, I'd go back to when this band were forming and I'd shoot them all dead. At least that would be something interesting to happen. I'd save the world and music and everyone's spiritual well being by exterminating this collection of arsehats before they put a single tedious, mid tempo, soft pop rock note to record. The utter tedious, shitfuck cunts.
If you like this band, in any capacity you're failing as a human being. Literally, you need to take a good long look in the mirror and think "why?" "who hurt me, what abuse cause ME to LIKE this?" It's a mental illness. An issue to be ironed out. They're the most hideous band to have been created on God's Green Earth and that includes Rooster. At least no-one took those side fringed fucktard seriously. Unlike the Manic Steet Anusholes who are held up as some kind of art rock nonsense. Since when did walking the same boring path as everyone else, but in a shitter, quieter and more obvious way than anyone else be art? Since when did replacing talent or good songs or personality with guy-liner count for credability? Fuck these guys and everything about them. Atrocious was a word made to describe this band. And all you're doing is encouraging them by saying they're "alright". Fuck that! Evil happens when good men do nothing.
DO SOMETHING. Actively burn every magazine or record that features these insipid lifeless fools. It's your passion they're draining, this vortex of cuntsville, this pretentious, misguided, beige, boring, tedious, middle of the road, NOTHINGNESS that rumbles on year after year. Ban this sick filth. Fuck these guys. If you want to define yourselves by this awfulness, go ahead but it's a blight on humanity and you are part of the problem if you're not part of the solution.
that reply reads very much like a GT-era Wire/Edwards polemic, too
And if I was 14 and the first album of theirs I heard was Postcards from a Young Man I'd think "These guys were once cutting edge and absolutely ferocious live!?!"
But that's not what the band's career as a whole can be melted down to.
Plus the more eyeliner they wore, the more interesting and less MOR their music was.
Mainly because of two reasons
1) Their later crimes override everything
2) Their early stuff was also shit.
They're the worst version of a ton of other bands. No-one will ever look back at the last 20 years of music and pinpoint the Manics as genre defining, of part of the Zeitgeist. And that says something, considering how long they've been going, and how popular they are.
Total anuscakes on every conceivable level. The anomilie bile produced by a nation that churns out rock bands as part of it's identity. Full shitknob express.
Informed by listening to the Manics' over the course of the last 20 years.
If you don't agree then cool. But it's not ill informed Saandals.
"genre-defining" and "part of the zeitgeist" though?
and what they stand for. This is why I admire John Lydon a million times more than the Sex Pistols, for example. The only band in which I equally admire the people and their actual music is The Smiths.
Back in the day, the Manics were a furious working-class-but-university-educated band of androgynous punk socialists who basically wanted to conquer the world and reshape it in their image, and rid us from the disease of capitalism and the atrocious social inequality which still exists. Can't remember the last time we had a band with as much yearning, passion and sincerity as that. They were 'full of hatred and desire', as someone once said...
'My idea of a life comes from a childhood glimpse of pornography/Though there is no true love/Just a finely tuned jealousy'
Yeah, their early stuff was so shit...
I reckon youd like them
Unlike 99% of other Manics-related threads
Wow, I thought I already knew and invented every word with cunt in it but thanks for adding these to the dictionary.
I wonder simply as a hat
that floats on high of then vales and hills
