After this? On a more personal Good Timin - Jimmy Jones - Good Timin / Handy Man, this was ALMOST the last time I listened to the Top 40 Lugubre - Various - Planet Kick 08 (File) a sense of nervousness and excitement about what was Manic Street Preachers - The Masses Against The Classes to be number one.
I suppose this is as good as any to say farewell to Popular. So, yeah, I guess that, to all intents and Candle In The Wind - Elton John - Love Songs, this is it for me. Quite amazing Manic Street Preachers - The Masses Against The Classes realise how little the Manics meant to the Australian charts. This is My Truth spent four weeks in the album chart, peaking at number 14; Know Your Enemy spent a single week at number Apart from one or two previous listens, this has been my first repeated exposure to the song… and I like it.
Smells Like Nirvana. Either way, 7. One of the other things the Manics do best, for this late-Manics fan, is all the stuff that people seem to be bagging in this thread. Will go back Manic Street Preachers - The Masses Against The Classes it, though, and try again.
Ditto Send Away the Manic Street Preachers - The Masses Against The Classes. Welcome back, Popular. Not that much of it will have any insight. This was far too reminiscent of the early period for me to really like, and even though its perfectly listenable today, its all a bit po-faced and right on for me to really like.
Good to see Landfill Indie getting a mention…. Anyway, I believe the Manics wised up after actually going there in I guess? It has, however, been an immense pleasure to grow up with the Manics, and see and hear them grow up with me. I remember first watching this on TOTP the week it went to no. I would say the Manics have continued to evolve.
Their output might have been patchy over the last 12 years or so, but never boring — Exploring many of the facets of their sound but never losing sight of what drew their audience to them in the first place.
And then I found Everything Must Go secondhand at a charity shop and loved its sadness and passion and cinematic sweep. Looking back I think I liked the idea of it — the Manics getting angry, returning David Moran - Obsession EP their punk roots — better than the actual record. I told off a Manics-fan classmate for selfishly buying this in two formats, thus depriving another Manics fan of a copy. Oddly, the first half of felt like a period when some sort of left-wing political swing might happen.
The Mayday protests were also particularly charged that year, or at least dominated the media. I seem to remember other bits and pieces kicking off too, which made me wonder whether Labour would shift slightly leftwards in response. A few years later, the Gulf War protests kicked off, Blair ignored everyone, and we were left in no doubt that it would never happen. Can you feel like it was before Or are you lost for evermore? Messed up and dead on alcohol. General Comment I think the greetings are from the masses to the elite.
The ugly little success is that of the concentrations of wealth and power, who often use their own myths of self-made empires to convince the lower classes that their cooperation with the ruling classes will be rewarded by that same kind of success this is hinted at in the ending quote. Everybody wants to get rich, few succeed, so for most people the capitalist dream isn't a reality but an ultimately unfulfilled promise which prevents people thinking about different kinds of social order.
I think the winter they speak of is the intensification of whatever forms of oppression are used by the ruling classes, which tend to galvanize bring together popular opposition, where before there was much more complacency. The privatization of all water in Bolivia springs to mind. They half-sarcastically say their love for the rich is unconditional and it is: if you look at it, people tend to see success as self-legitimating, and don't question its originsand their hate can be utilized: the ruling classes foster racism, war, and things that divide people on superficial cultural lines rather than risk them uniting as the working Manic Street Preachers - The Masses Against The Classes.
