You still have it and took it, so I don't see a difference.

I'm just joking around, BUT maybe if you went out and bought Forever Delayed or The Holy Bible it would make up for Send in the Tigers?

This is kinda interesting. Also, I sure hope Yertle is seeing them this coming Monday.

Missing Manic Street Preacher Now "Presumed Dead" | Pitchfork

It's one of rock's bigger mysteries: on the morning of February 1, 1995, 27-year-old Richey James Edwards, guitarist/lyricist for Welsh rabble-rousers Manic Street Preachers, rode off after checking out of a London hotel-- and was never heard from again. His abandoned car turned up two weeks later near a bridge known to attract potential suicides, yet his body was never found, and unsubstantiated claims of Edwards sightings persisted for years.

Yesterday (November 23) Edwards' family made the decision to close this tragic chapter in the guitarist's saga, at least on paper, updating his legal status from "missing" to "presumed dead," according to an NME.com report.

Welsh paper the Western Mail quotes the family's lawyer as saying the decision relects "an acceptance that his affairs have got to be sorted. That's not the same as an acceptance that he is dead."

A spokesperson for the Manics, meanwhile, offered the following to the Western Mail: "The band has been aware this was coming. This is the parents' choice and the band is happy to go with what the parents decide is best. We all dream Richey will come back one day. You hope he is still around somewhere. But it is no longer a realistic hope and if this offers some kind of closure then the band will be content with that."

The remaining Manics-- frontman James Dean Bradfield, bassist Nicky Wire, and drummer Sean Moore-- have been recording a new album with Steve Albini using lyrics penned by Edwards before his disappearance. "Finally it feels like the right time to use them," they wrote on their website earlier this month.

The band is mulling a couple working titles at present-- Journal for Plague Lovers and I Know I Believe in Nothing But It Is My Nothing-- and claims we can look forward to "a record that celebrates the genius of [Edwards'] words, full of love, anger, intelligence, and respect. We have to make this great. Wish us luck."

For the moment, however, the Preachers are proselytizing in Southeast Asia.

MSP:

11-24 Singapore City, Singapore - Fort Canning Park
11-26 Hong Kong, China - HITEC Star Hall
11-30 Bangkok, Thailand - Bangkok 100 Rock Festival

At the official Manics site, they've got the album art up for Journal for Plague Lovers. It's another painting by Jenny Saville, who also did the artwork for The Holy Bible. She's amazing.

Here's the tracklisting:

Peeled Apples
Jackie Collins Existential Question Time
Me and Stephen Hawking
This Joke Sport Severed
Journal For Plague Lovers
She Bathed Herself In A Bath Of Bleach
Facing Page: Top Left
Marlon J.D.
Doors Closing Slowly
All Is Vanity
Pretension/Repulsion
Virginia State Epileptic Colony
William’s Last Words


Some intriguing titles in there. I managed to hear the song "Peeled Apples," which was played on BBC Radio 1 recently. It's heavy, folks.

And it's very good. I'm a bit saddened at seeing all of the Tigers hate. I don't think it's a perfect album by any means, but I think that it was the best album they had released since This is My Truth if not since Everything Must Go.

But back to Journal for Plague Lovers. It's (surprisingly) not all that anthemic. I call that surprising because even the Holy Bible has lots and lots of big choruses over the top of the grime. I think the grime on Journal is not quite so pronounced, but it's definitely a musically raw album compared to everything they've done in the last decade and a half. At this point, I think the best are "Peeled Apples," "Journal for Plague Lovers," "Marlon J.D.," and maybe "This Joke Sport Severed," but all of them are quality. I don't hear any obvious singles ala "Faster" or "PCP," nor do I hear any obvious standouts on the level of "Yes" or "ifwhiteamericatoldthetruthforonedayitsworldwouldfallapart". But again, though the album invites comparisons to the Holy Bible, it is a very different experience. Parallel for sure, but not a carbon copy in any way.

JDB's vocals are killer as always.

I found it, quite literally, by searching for it. My bandwidth is quite limited, so I don't want to lose my school internet access as finals are coming up, but you should be able to find it. If not, I'll see if I can't track down the link myself when I'm not getting ready to eat dinner with my wife.

As far as I can tell, this record will be available only as an import in the U.S., available May 19. Not sure how I'm going to get mine yet, but I will, of course, be paying actual money for it.

And I completely agree that Jackie Collins is some choice rock music.
