Back in time
10 February 2022
Welsh legends MANIC STREET PREACHERS released their debut album, a double one,
30 years ago today, on 10 February 1992. I fell in love with the Manics for the reasons countless fans fell in love with them at the very start. They looked utterly cool, like newborn punks and, most of all, of course, they sounded rip-riff-roaring, anthemic
and loud and clear.
Generation Terrorists overall was a hellish rock ‘n roll
tour de force and the start of a brilliant career.
NME said: “Angry as it was bright, the Manics blowtorched
their manifesto in pulverising punk guitar squeals.”
R.I.P. Richey Edwards
