You Love Us!

“I hate middle age, in between acceptance and rage.”

This line from ‘Builder of Routines’ sums the Manic Street Preachers up in one succinct sentence. Sure; they are heading into their mid-forties; but they are certainly not ready for the pipe-and-slippers lifestyle just yet. From their Guns N Roses-inspired debut; ‘Generation Terrorists’; to the majestic, melodic ‘Gold Against the Soul’ right through to the stark, bleak tones of the masterpiece that is ‘The Holy Bible’; the Manics are interesting and innovative; imaginative and intriguing. They constantly evolve their look and sound and no two albums are similar to one another. Take the two most recent offerings, namely ‘Postcards from a Young Man’ and their latest release; ‘Rewind the Film.’ They purposely wanted to defect away from their usual formula, which is heavily dominated by electric guitars, crashing drums and blasting bass. Instead, they have chosen to favour acoustic tones, with brass accompaniments and soaring string sections to give a fuller sound whilst still possessing a hint of the understated and intimate.

One of the greatest things about these Welsh wonders is that they have always maintained a strong sense of individuality and have pretty much covered all bases as far as genres are concerned. Punk, heavy metal, soul, traditional R&B, even Motown and swing; they have effortlessly managed to incorporate a diverse and wide buy levitra online now ranging assortment of sounds into their work. When they venture to the HMV Ritz on Friday 27th September you will be treated to a healthy portion of their extensive back catalogue as well as hearing brand-new songs which have been showcased for the first time on this specific tour. Who would have thought that these lads from the Valleys would still hold influence over their admirers after once being cited as ‘a mix between the shambolic and the precocious?’

At The Mitre Hotel, we have been on tenterhooks waiting for the Blackwood boys to return to the North West, and the fact that they are playing a more intimate gig as opposed to the usual arena or football stadium makes for an extra special experience.
