"HEAL YR'SELF, HURT YR'SELF..."

Manic Street Preachers -- 'Judge Yr'Self'



More razor-sharp, self-cleansing rage from the Manics at their best.

And hey, while we're talking about the Manics, Sean Witzke's posted links to documentaries on the making of The Holy Bible and Everything Must Go over on his blog. Go check 'em out, and be sure to watch the Top of the Pops performance of 'Faster' over on Sean Collins' blog when you're done.

Another blast from the past, another plattah that mattahs:

Prior to this week my only real Manics experience was with Chemicals remixes. (I think I'd seen the video for If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next years ago, but other than that.) I knew about the guy who vanished, too.

Ooooh, nice!

Sean, The Holy Bible and Everything Must Go are essential. There are some great songs, slogans and uniforms from before that era, and one or two good one's after it, but that period... that's some Joy Division/New Order shit right there.

Except, maybe, better? The Holy Bible is, anyway...
