Nicky Wire's Secret Society

Last night, whilst in the throes of sweet summer boredom, I decided to take a peek at the Manic Street Preachers website and see if there was any new information about Nicky and James's solo albums. And there was.


If you go to www.manics.co.uk and click on the left side of the main banner, you can join Nicky Wire's Secret Society. I guess it just basically puts you on a mailing list for info and goodies re: Nicky's new solo album, but after I registered, I got to download a new song of his, "Daydreamer Eyes," which I quite like.


You can also sign up for info and mailings re: James's new album, The Great Western. His single, "That's No Way to Tell a Lie" is also up at his myspace page.


I know I can count on one hand the people who might be interested in all of this, but still, here it is for ya! Viva Manics!

The same.

Although Nicky doesn't exactly have the most, um, palatable singing voice in the word. There's a weird, um, quality about it that's fairly alluring though. In a train-wreck kind of way.

I remember rifling through Manics videos on youtube once and there was this hilarious clip of a live song (can't remember which, but it might have been 'Roses in the Hospital') where Nicky tries to chime in on one verse and then realises how awful he sounds and stops.

^there are a lot of singers that I really wouldn't call singers but enjoy anyway

Nicky's song wasn't too bad....between James and Nicky's songs I think I like Jame's one better.

Yeah, it's pretty obvious why James is the vocalist for the Manics. But I must agree, yertle, Nicky's voice in its own bizarre way...I don't know, it's hard to describe, but yeah. It makes for some interesting listening, I guess you could say!

Hey LJT, are you LesJoursTristes on last.fm? Mind if I add you as a friend? (I was looking to see if you were in the interference group and guessed that might be you...I swear I'm not stalking you, honest!)

Stay beautiful, everyone.

I'm going to wait until I'm back in the US to download this track, as I doubt my business partner roommate who's sleeping in the next room would appreciate me rocking out to the track right now!

H to the G, it is your duty to remind me to download this if I don't remember! Looking forward to it (and to finally hearing the Bangkok track).

Oh yeah, is the streaming version of James' song better than the crappy radio rip that we all seem to have?

I've been wondering for a while when are the manics recording new stuff! They rock live!

And they're quite sexy too!

Hehe...


Mofo, you may want to download it soon anyway--it's limited to the first 1000 people who sign up, so no telling how much longer it will be available.

Yertle, thanks for the video link. Richey is legendary for a lot of things, but his guitar playing is not one of them. Maybe that explains a lot. If Richey can have a guitar, Nicky can have a microphone. Both useless, but good for that rock n roll effect.

Mostly that video made me sad that those of us in the States are probably never gonna get to see Manics live unless we fly across the Atlantic. Maybe I should start a movement. JDB AMERICAN SOLO TOUR IN '06!!!!!!!!

Does it make it so it can only play on one computer though? I don't really want it on my crappy work lap top, that's why I'm hesitant to get it now.
