i love what theyve done since richey but jfpl is just sublime. i missed them when they came around but you know what? i dont think i could watch them live. the music is too good. christ where do i start? masking tape, bored out of my mind, yes, faster, etc etc. i never thought a band could affect me like this one did. the best.

'This Is Yesterday' still gives me goosebumps.
 
I wouldn't say they're the best band on the planet but I dig some of their stuff.

My favourite songs are;

The Masses Against The Classes
Everything Must Go
If You Tolerate This
You're Love Alone Is Not Enough
Australia
 

Tex

Racer X
Autumn Song is greatness

Yes, but around the time of "Gold Against the Soul". I'd rather whip myself than listen to anything after "Everything Must Go".

Lifeblood? naaaah.
I actually love "Lifeblood". :o "1985" namechecks Morrissey, trivia fans. :thumb:

Great song from "Lifeblood".

But this is possibly my all-time favorite Manics song..

I recall them on tele doing "Motown Junk" ..Thought it was very pretentious. I do like a good few of their song's and even saw them live..
