1997

Taking place on January 28th at the Camden Centre, the Manic Street Preachers swept the board, following the previous year’s ‘Everything Must Go’. James Dean Bradfield told us: “The obvious things aside, it has been a good year for us, but obviously its hard for us to say that too enthusiastically.” Meanwhile Noel Gallagher caused a bit of controversy for saying that taking drugs was like “having a cup of tea in the morning.” Tory MP Edwina Currie said: “he is incapable of uttering sensible words, even when he’s sober.”
Eek.
