A multi-award-winning experience of what it’s like to live in constant fear, from rookie Hungarian director László Nemes
Future Of The Left
‘Manchasm’ is stupid, no doubt about it, but it’s far from silly. It’s a blistering jalopy ride through the nonsense poetry of Edward Lear, the straight-up hardcore of Fugazi and a fourth-set GCSE music class. In fact, it’s the type of thing that John Peel, were he with us today, would seize by the seven-inch sleeve and run giddily around the perimeter of Peel Acres with, declaring it the second coming of our lord Mark E Smith. Or maybe he’d just play it at half speed and mumble over the bleepy intro – who knows? What we do know is that “all he ever wanted was a detonator” is now our new favourite lyric to shout out at inappropriate moments, with “Colin is a pussy/A very pretty pussy” coming in at a very close second. Colin, by the way, is Jack Egglestone’s cat, who you can sport mooching around and being all feline in the ‘Manchasm’ video. Now, you don’t get that from The Enemy, do you?
