Yeesh, this thread has been dead for a while!

I don't know if there are very many big MSP fans here, but I heard the new single and still don't know what to think of it. And yet again, they are touring UK and this time Japan and Australia, but not the US. *long suffering sigh* :D

Hey thanks for reviving this thread. I bumped into James Dean Bradfield At Paddington Station in London on Friday!!! I was completely starstruck. They're certainly getting prolific these days, 3 albums in a 3 year period, and some of their best work.

In heaven. My almost favourite band in my most favourite venue ever. Melbourne's forum theatre.

This will be epic. Sydney and Adelaide will be on my list too.

I cant! In the middle of my second schooling semester. Flooded with writing assignments. Straight away after graduation, I'm off to the military for 2 years (because I'm actually Jason Bourne).

Its all right, the Manics will still be alive around 2013. Unless the band does a Richey. Which if they do, I will personally find them and drag them back to the stage.

yes it was the man himself. I was going up the up escalator and he was going down the down escalator, so didn't really have time for a chat but just said hello!

What better time to write that 7 hours each way...

Singapore nash service you poor bugger.

Friend from when I lived over there had to go to extreme lengths to get out of it - tore his anterior cruciate playing for the military army team. Full reconstruction and medical discharge.

He thought it was a good deal.

Great man. Threw his guitar pick to my friend when we saw them front row GA in Dublin. That said, so jealous. :D

And Adelaide.

Thoughts on Postcards?

I bloody love it. Took me a couple of listens, it's definitely not 'the follow up to Journal for Plague Lovers', you could obviously take JFPL to be the bookend of The Holy Bible.

Postcards from a Young Man is, to me, the bookend for Everything Must Go, with Send Away The Tigers in the middle.

It has some utterly amazing songs on it, but none better in my opinion than Some Kind Of Nothingness with Ian McCullough of Echo & The Bunnymen.

It uses soaring strings and a choir in a way that Moment of Surrender only wishes it could. It's the song I desperately wanted MoS to be I reckon.

The album is superb and I can't wait to see them in November.

I'd agree with that, although it's not a patch on EMG.

It took me a few listens too but I'm starting to like it now.

Looks like they are touring the US in March/April according to Sean.
