Why do the Manics have to be the punchline to every socialist joke? Can we, like, post pictures of Gang of Four or something?

Because we all love Hugo.

please do, they were on The Whistle Test Years last night - as i pointed out cluelessly to my unimpressed girlfriend, 'See? this is real punk rock, lack of ability boosting the creativity!'

Cor, doesn't Sean look like Declan Donnelley there. A fat Dec admittedly but then the Manics look like the poster boys for fat rock anyway so...

gawd Nicky Wire really does look like Michael Jackson in most Manics pics it seems

My favorite thing about that one I keep handy for posting, is how surly Sean is. What is he being so gangsta about?

Ally (mlescaut), Friday, 16 May 2003 14:45 (10 years ago) Permalink

Someone stole his trumpet and he is sad.

"Oi! Give 'em back 'is trumpet, Albarn, or we'll give ya a right knockin', socialist football style!"

Give him back his trumpet now. Its the only think that stop him eating constantly.

There's a thought. Maybe he et his trumpet. Maybe he got confused after seeing Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and thought it was a Toot Sweet.

(note: These are the two pictures I found searching for "champagne and pies". It's a montage I call "An Evening With The Manics")

Ally (mlescaut), Friday, 16 May 2003 15:03 (10 years ago) Permalink

Where are the pies?

Pete (Pete), Friday, 16 May 2003 15:07 (10 years ago) Permalink

Well, obviously already eaten.

This thread really is a testament to the inability to combine champagne and socialism, you know.

Ally (mlescaut), Friday, 16 May 2003 15:14 (10 years ago) Permalink

I"m off to see Eric Hobsbawm do a talk now. Shall I ask him about Sean's trumpet?

8 years pass...

So opened an era in which anti-Thatcherite culture began to break put from its isolation in the underground. And the signs were promising, with a rapid growth of its influence and visibility.The foundations of what became known as Britpop were built by groups whose leading figures were born in the years either side of i960 - Pulp, Denim, the Lightning Seeds - and by fellow-travellers such as Suede, the Manic Street Preachers and the Auteurs, who similarly drew on the glam rock and new wave sounds of the 1970s. No longer content to inhabit the indie ghetto that had been the preserve of British guitar bands, these groups came with ambition on their minds. "We always knew the kind of band we'd be," explained Suede's bassist, Mat Osman, a whole two singles in to their career, "which was an important, celebratory, huge rock band. A really old-fashioned thing."

Much of the crossover dance music of the time was made by those of the same vintage: Norman Cook, Andrew Weatherall, the Orb, the Shamen and the Stereo MCs. So, too, were the early incarnations of the "new lad" phenomenon that became so big in the mid-1990s: Men Behaving Badly and Fantasy Football League on television, Loaded magazine on the newsstands. Meanwhile, Danny Boyle and Michael Winterbottom were reinvigorating British cinema and Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and the rest were doing the same for British art.

Elsewhere, Jack Dee was the first stand-up comedian to make the transition from the alternative Channel 4 to the family-friendly world of ITV, without losing his original audience. Again, this was no accident. "I know I'm doing a good job when I'm appealing beyond my peer group," Dee said in 1992. "I love it when people my parents' age compliment me."

think this means "ripping off nouvelle vague movies rather than 19th century novels"
