Manic Street Preachers

Although the Manic Street Preachers keep releasing new albums, I love their earlier work a lot more.
To explain this, I've collected some of their older songs for you :
  • Motorcycle emptiness (mp3) : their first hit single over here, and the one which won them my ear for quite a long time... It must have been the combination of the raw (motorcycle) and the sad (emptiness)...
  • La tristesse durera (mp3) : French lines sung by an English speaking band (even if they are Welsh...), it keeps sounding quite funny in a way, but still... a very good song !
  • If you tolerate this your children will be next (mp3) : an anti-fascist song with a title that has multiple meanings really...
  • Suicide is painless (mp3) : the theme from M.A.S.H. covered by the Manics... how cool is that !
  • A design for life (mp3) : just a simple example as to how to succeed in striking the right chord...

Enjoy these tracks, which can all be found on Forever delayed which you can purchase here
