I fucking love Know Your Enemy. The album is an absolute mess, in a good way, everything they were trying to do with Generation Terrorists, but now more frantic, less defiant, it is beautiful and tense and unsure of itself – something MSP had never been before. I remember someone mentioning Manic Street Preachers at […]Manic Street Preachers Confirm Know Your Enemy Reissue *YES!!!!* : — Kendall Lacey’s Webworld

Whilst going through the band’s archive to put together an anniversary version of “Know Your Enemy“, Nicky Wire found the original tapes of “Solidarity” and “Door To The River” that he’d made up in the studio during recording. When he put forward the idea of recreating those records, James Dean Bradfield agreed on the condition that he could remix the entire record with the […]MANIC STREET PREACHERS – ” Know Your Enemy ” Deluxe Re-mastered — The Fat Angel Sings

Al Greene. Madonna. Felt. Guns N’ Roses. A fairly eclectic bunch I am sure you will agree. On the surface there isn’t much that connects them. But if you look at the career of the Manic Street Preachers you’ll see the influence of these four and more. Sleep Next To Plastic is a career-spanning playlist […]Manic Street Preachers – Sleep Next To Plastic — Closewatch Music Blog
Best of, and other compilation albums have long been a low-cost, revenue earner for music companies, but they still require promotion budgets and some music companies may baulk at that. So enter the playlist.
Welsh rockers, Manic Street Preachers have recently released the playlist, Sleep Next To Plastic. A compendium of the cover versions the band has done over the years.
While it’s a worthy collection, it is clear that there has been the barest of effort to release the playlist. There’s not even artwork beyond a pic that looks like it was just randomly selected from off the cutting room floor.
The whole package could have been put together in an afternoon by an intern.
