Manic Street Preachers: Manic… depression!

Everett True, Melody Maker, 29 May 1993

This is the MANIC STREET PREACHERS' first interview of 1993. That's the good news over with. Now for the bad: RICHEY believes that "ninety per cent of the Western world are unable to get to sleep at night without artificial stimulants." SEAN just thinks "everything is crap." NICKY reckons it's good something like Riot Grrrl has come along and "made him feel redundant." JAMES worries that computers "erode the soul." Still, at least EVERETT TRUE is happy, 'cos he's just heard their new single, and reckons it sounds like the… Quireboys!
