Manic Street Preachers - 'Natwest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds'

Nicky Wire talked to Ben Graham about the Manics' Generation Terrorists: "with the lyrics, we over-stretched ourselves at the time early on and some of it doesn't work, but with something like 'NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds' which we were kind of laughed at for, it's probably the most prophetic lyric we've ever written, you know. "Black horse apocalypse, death sanitised through credit" fucking nails it! Everything, in two lines!" Read the full interview here.

The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster - 'Psychosis Safari'

This band made a righteous return at a series of UK dates this week... Luke Turner is blasted by a heavier, hungry sound... read his Three Songs No Flash review here.
