Manic Street Preachers are a Welsh alternative rock band, formed in Blackwood in 1986. The current lineup comprises frontman and guitarist James Dean Bradfield, bassist and chief lyricist Nicky Wire, and drummer Sean Moore.

Manic Street Preachers are probably the biggest politically-charged rock band of their generation; during their heyday, in the nineties, they released a series of records that were characterized both by their fierce social commentary and the aggression of their sound. They made their name with their 1992 debut ‘Generation Terrorists’, and followed it up with ‘Gold Against the Soul’ in 1993 and what many consider to be their magnum opus, the unremittingly dark ‘The Holy Bible’, in 1994.

In those days, the primary lyricist and the band’s mouthpiece was Richey James Edwards, the band’s irrepressible guitarist – he once carved ‘4 REAL’ into his forearm with a razor after being accused of inauthenticity. In February 1995, Edwards disappeared without a trace; he has been presumed dead since November 2008. The band went on without him, and achieved their biggest commercial successes with 1996’s ‘Everything Must Go’ and its follow-up, ‘This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours’ in 1998 – the latter spawned their first UK number one single, ‘If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next’. In more recent years, they’ve released an album based around unused Edwards lyrics – the rapturously-received ‘Journal for Plague Lovers’, headlined a show based around their singles compilation at London’s O2 Arena, and released two quickfire records in 2013 and 2014, ‘Rewind the Film’ and ‘Futurology’.
