Manic Street Preachers - Lifeblood

Great album. It's got quite an 80s touch to it - shades of New Order especially - and very little angry politico-ranting, for better or for worse. In related news, they're also releasing a 3-cd edition of the Holy Bible album in December.

A few comments:

1. Damn these late American release dates! I did hear the song "Fragments" though, and it was very good.

2. Mofo and I are planning to get each other The Holy Bible for Christmas. And now they're coming out with a 3-CD edition? Whatever shall we do?

3. It's about time, EP.

EP: Email me (you've got my gmail address, I think, if not it's on my AOTM profile) and we'll work something out.

HG: Fragments is indeed a very cool song. As for The Holy Bible, would Nicky Wire REALLY want you to be so capitalist and establishmentarianist? 'Course not! Steal it.

and now this is where I take off...

Various music videos/short films from the new album are available on the official website at http://www.manics.co.uk. Incidentally I think they've just released their entire back catalogue on Itunes. Also features the band's 'Top 10s' which is extremely High Fidelity.

I'm guessing that Holy Bible isnt being released in the US, or isnt for a long time at least. Stupid Europe.

I heard 'The Love of Richard Nixon'... I don't understand what this song is trying to say. If Watergate hadn't happened, we'd love Tricky Dick? But the lyrics don't really say that, either. I'm confused.

Why do lyrics have to be ambiguous?

Quote:
"The Love of Richard Nixon", a single with a typically provocative title, is number one as we go to press. It appears to be another case of sympathy for the devil. "The main thrust of the song," Wire explains, "is the idea of being tarnished with a certain part of your life forever. With us, people might think of Richey's disappearance, or 4 REAL.

"With Nixon, people will always associate him with Watergate and being a crook, not the fact that he was the first president to go to China to build up relations. Or the way he de-escalated the arms race with the Soviet Union - quite admirable things. Whereas Kennedy for instance, when you analyse it, he was the first president to put troops into Vietnam. He sanctioned the Bay of Pigs - besides his moral disaster zone of shagging everything in sight."

"If you take someone like JFK," agrees Bradfield, "Bay of Pigs was undeniably American imperialism, akin to what Reagan was doing with the Contras. There were the assassination attempts on Castro. He forced the Soviet Union's hand with the missiles in Cuba, and everyone knows Bush stole the election, but JFK stole 'his' election. Now, if you put Nixon next to JFK, I would probably be so liberally wet that I'd go with JFK."

Wire, who has watched Oliver Stone's Nixon twice or three times a year since it came out, continues: "There's always been a ridiculousness to Manic Street Preachers. Not humour, not funny-ha ha, but a question of 'Do they really mean it?' But there's probably more empathy [with Nixon] than I should admit. Nixon wasn't a good president, but he wasn't George W Bush. He was a brilliant man, and not all Republican presidents have been. I do think he's a fascinating character, particularly in today's climate. He probably ended the Vietnam war. Whatever you think his reasons were - and conspiracy theories abound - he signed off at the end of it ... If Radiohead are Kennedy," he smiles, switching to soundbite mode, "then Manic Street Preachers are Nixon: the ugly duckling who had to try 10 times harder than anyone else. Paranoid megalomaniacs."

Interesting. I read once that Nixon was also a manic obsessive about neatness who would chase children off his front lawn after he'd raked it clean of leaves.

From fd:

According to www.billboard.com the 10th Anniversary Edition of The Holy Bible will get a North American release. The 2CD+DVD set will be in the shops February 8, and the DVD will obviously be compatible with North American DVD players (Region 1).

Whoops, I didn't even see this thread. MSP are brilliant. I have to wait on my order thru Amazon.com So in the meantime, I am listening to 'Empty Souls' over, and over, and over, and over...

For some reason it got delayed and came out today in North America. I'm listening to the original album right now for the first time.....wow. Wow. I'm impressed, wow. Did I mention that this album is 'wow' worthy? It is. Wow.

Anyways, everyone pick it up.
