The Manic Street Preachers: ‘If you tolerate this then your children will be next’

Wow. Hands up who forgot how good The Manic Street Preachers were/are. Come on, put those hands up. Yes, that’s what I thought. Nearly all of you. Disgraceful behaviour people. Absolutely disgraceful.

Think of the political edge. Nicky Wire’s cross dressing. A Design For Life. James Dean Bradfields little tiny, perfectly round head. 2010’s return to form album ‘Postcards From A Young Man’. Stealing the sun from my heart, thieving welsh bastards. Some guy called Kevin Carter. The mystery of former member Richey Edwards, still missing and presumed dead. Mental.

Anyway, here’s just a little reminder of the greatest band ever to come out of Wales. ‘If you tolerate this then your children will be next’ from 1998’s This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours by The Manic Street Preachers…just a half sandwich more than a mouthful that one. Hope this helps you enjoy the first day of your much deserved weekend. Have a belter and above all else remember The Manics, a band still doing it even if nobody is looking.
