Manic Street Preachers gave exciting glimpses of their past, present and future at the Ritz, Getintothis’ Sakura Zilla gave us a set of photos right from the holy bible.
Let it be said that you can’t keep a good band down.
Any number of setbacks, critical opprobrium and musical shortcomings have contrived to throw a spanner in the works of the Welsh trio.
Yet they are still riding high. Album number eleven Rewind The Film captures the band at their most revealing and dramatic, and their live shows are rambunctious affairs that cater to all generations of their fans.
Getintothis’ Joseph Viney was lucky enough to catch them at their best and his review captures the spirit of their longevity and renewed appeal.
Getintothis’ Sakura, down in the trenches, did the dirty work and brings us these great photos of one of the gigs of the year.
