- The Manic Street Preachers, or just "The Manics", are a succesful British rock band originating in Blackwood Wales. Although labelled with a variety of genres The Manics are generally regarded as playing punkesque and alternative rock music. The band are known to be very politically minded, champinioning left wing ideals which particuarly show in their earlier lyrics.
The band was formed by school friends James Dean Bradfield, Flicker, Sean Moore and Nicky Wire. Later Flicker left the band and friend Richey Edwards joined. In 1995 Richey would disapeared in one of the most mysterious and sad events in recent rock history. The band are most famous for such hits as "Motorcycle Emptiness", "A Design for Life" and "The Love of Richard Nixon".
The band's ninth studio album, ‘Journal For Plague Lovers’ is out now. Produced by Steve Albini during the Winter of 2008, the album features lyrics left behind by Richey Edwards across all 13 new tracks.
