Photo Gallery: Manic Street Preachers

If Manic Street Preachers were half as revolutionary as they reckon they are, you’d have thought that by now they’d have stopped rehashing the same old pompous songs with wholly unnecessary string sections and replaced James Dean Bradfield’s petulant whine with the sound of Che Guevara belching the best bits of Das Kapital. As is stands, no such forward-thinking action has taken place and again, we’re left with a dreary shlocker that sounds like all the mentally ill people that get laughed at on X Factor have been grouped together to record a charity cover of ‘A Design For Life’.
