On Saturday night, the Manic Street Preachers played what is apparently their last British gig for two years. I wasn’t there in London – but having seen them several times over the years, it is good to see that they are still going. Sure , some albums have been better than others, but anyone who thinks they have just been repeating themselves for twenty years clearly hasn’t been paying attention. They’ve been a more than regular soundtrack in my life over the past twenty years -and I think there’s nop doubt many others who feel the same, too.

This was a free track three years ago:

There have been no shortage of excellent Manic Street Preachers songs over the years – off the top of my head I have heard them tackle songs as di’Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head,’ ‘Velocity Girl’ ‘Umbrella’ ‘Take The Skinheads Bowling’ ‘Bright Eyes’…this is why some of us still love the idea of the single as a package, not just as a single download, for these wee gems that might appear.

This is a cover of THAT Christmas song (yes, that one!)

…and seeing as it’s Christmas:
