Trev, I can probably just send it to you if you like. Let me know.

Some thoughts/news/etc:

'Daydreamer Eyes' is a lot nicer than 'I Killed the Zeitgeist' but somehow I keep imaginging James singing it. Nicky's singing is miles better than on 'Wattsville Blues' but the ending (the 'foggy eyes' bit) is still a bit painful to listen to.

If you go to this website (http://klanluke.livejournal.com/) there's a ysi link for all of the available Nicky material. I have no idea what any of it is because ysi is down for me at the moment.

From foreverdelayed: Outspoken Manics bassist and lyricist Nicky Wire staged an intimate gig at the Guardian Hay-on-Wye Festival yesterday. A rather drunk Nicky, along with his Secret Society Band performed Wire’s new solo material, with a few Manic Street Preachers favourites thrown in. The setlist ran:

Withdraw - Retreat
From Despair To Where/Break My Heart Slowly
Dying Breeds
Goodbye Suicide
#Unknown#
Roadrunner
Bobby Untitled
Wattsville Blues/#Unknown#
Sehnsucht
The Shining Path
This Is My Last
Condemned To Rock ‘N’ Roll/I Killed The Zeitgeist

Nicky appeared on stage in a pink suit, accompanied with the usual arm full of bracelets and standard issue eyeliner (as well as a few bottles of White Wine). (pictures at http://www.foreverdelayed.org.uk)

And finally...

The video for JDB's 'There's No Way To Tell A Lie'. It's apparently based on Takeshi 'Beat' Kitano's film 'Sonatine' and features Manics photog Mitch Ikeda.

Thanks for all the info, yertle.

I don't know what to say about the JDB video... Anyone else? Thoughts?

If the time limit has ran out when I finally get home (when ever the hell that will be!), I'll let you know and have you send it to me. Looking forward to hearing it after all the impressions, sounds like an interesting track.

I had a chance to watch the JDB music video, I quite liked it! Simple idea, but it still kept me interested the whole time. Also, the quality of the track was better than the radio rip I've heard, so that was nice too.

On a side note, I just rediscovered this video of 'She Is Suffering' solo and acoustic when looking through the requested videos on YouTube after the JDB video.

Haha.

You know, if I was a host on a show like that I'd probably do the exact same thing. If not worse.

Really I think it was the cheap background effects that got to me, I remember a time when all our tv was like that here....basically all the camera-men were on drugs to get away from the 'troubles'

Actually there is a local station that has a gig on rotation by a band called The Chalets, which I attended and I can be quite clearly seen as the long haired guy right in front of them going completely nuts dancing.......

That's local tv for ya

Got and listened to the Nicky song. I as expecting much worse vocal wise from all the comments, hehe. Not too bad of a song.

Found a final "full" version of 'That's No Way to Tell a Lie' video today. Pretty cool, I love the subtitles. Apparently James didn't die.

Hey awesome! And yes I have been liking that song lately. It sounds like what 'Judge Yourself' may have sounded like had it been on Lifeblood.

Will give it a look when I get home!

Interesting song comparison, yertle. "Judge Yr'self" happens to be one of my favorite Manics songs.
