Postcard From an old fan

A brilliant album, I've played it back to back so many times that I don't know what the first song is anymore! I know that they've had some stick over 'Selling out' but what a load of tripe.

Fashioning themselves after the Clash and the Sex Pistols, the Manics were on a mission, intending to restore revolution to rock & roll at a time when Britain was dominated by trancey shoegazers and faceless, trippy acid house. Their self-consciously dangerous image, leftist leanings, crunching...
