Manics pen song for The June Brides

The Welsh trio offer up their own version of 'The Instrumental'

Manic Street Preachers have penned a song for a tribute album dedicated to former 80s pop band The June Brides.

The Welsh trio have contributed their own rendition of the ‘The Instrumental’ to the 16-track record ‘Still Unravished’.

The June Brides enjoyed a brief career between 1984-1986, releasing four singles and one album – ‘There Are Eight Million Stories’.

Despite their demise, the Eighties pop band attracted interest from former Smiths singer Morrissey and later proved to be a major inspiration on the likes of the Manic Street Preachers and Belle & Sebastian.
