Well because I'm so keen on blowing my own trumpet here it is:

You Love Us (Heavenly version)
Motorcycle Emptiness (Forever Delayed edit)
Suicide Is Painless
La Tristesse Durera
From Despair To Where
4st 7lb
PCP
A Design For Life
Enola/Alone
Sepia
The Everlasting (edit)
If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next
Prologue To History
Ocean Spray
Just A Kid
4 Ever Delayed
1985
A Song For Departure
I Live To Fall Asleep

'My Little Empire', 'Ready For Drowning', 'Girl Who Wanted To Be God', 'Yes', 'Stay Beautiful', 'Kevin Carter', 'Revol', 'Roses In The Hospital', 'Of Walking Abortion', 'No Surface All Feeling', 'There By The Grace Of God (St. Etienne mix)', 'Sleepflower' were all planned on being there but didn't make it due to time and the fact I wanted to have bits and pieces for everything, which also explains the (more or less) chronological listing.

Manics spit on your capitalist ipod scum!

Oh wait, they're selling their catalogue on itunes. So much for political aggro then...

Thanks to HeartlandGirl, I have become an instant fan. I am completely obsessed with the songs "If You Tolerate This Your Children Will be Next" (an absolutely delicioiusly exquisite song) and "To Repel Ghosts." I now must own their entire catalog within the next 24 hours. Is this possible?

The more manics fans the better!!
Now isn't it a shame they won't play North America anymore?

Try ebay...i got their entire catalogue there for about 15$!

(yes I'm still excited about it after so many months! )

Well, they're not exactly well-known here (after their '94 era) and the last time they stepped near Toronto was back in '99 in a tiny club so (compared to stadiums they sell-out in UK), I guess there's no point coming here if there isn't the audience (or atleast that's what they think)

Damn, I didn't know they were so unheard of here. I have been hearing about them since their first record but just never got around to checking them out and figured I was just slow getting on the bandwagon. I'm really surprised to learn that they have no audience here.

Joyful, FYI, Manics stuff is near impossible to find here in the states. I've only seen about 4 of their CDs available in regular record stores since last year. It can be aggrivating.

Glad you're liking them, they've really become a favorite of mine lately also.

Well then I won't waste time combing the pathetic stores here and will just hunt stuff down online.

Are these two songs I mentioned pretty representative of their work? I mean, if I love those songs will I love most of their records?

"If you tolerate this" is from "This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours", it's a great CD. You'll love it if you liked those songs. But my favourite albums from them are their first 2, Generation Terrorist and Holy Bible. Give "if white america told the truth for one day" a listen, it's (IMO) a good representative of their first two albums.

Try "Motorcycle Emptiness" too. Great song!

(I can go on for hours about Manics! )

I think they're pretty representative of their work. Their first 3 albums seem to be a little more rocking, which I dont think you'd have anything against. The albums since then have seemed to become more "grand" in size and structure, if that makes any sense. Bigger production, dense arrangements, huge choruses, etc. (like you've heard in those 2 songs)

I think it's a pretty safe bet you'll do ok. Tolerate was my first "fav" too.

I believe Holy Bible is their 3rd, and Gold Against the Soul is their 2nd.

I'm a sucker for big anthemic stuff like that. But I guess I will grab whatever I can find easily and start there.
