Also, I don't know what's wrong with us, but every time we talk on the podcast, we always bring up Manic Street Preachers. I think I should just make it official and put them in the podcast penalty box, where we will never discuss Richey or the Manics! Before we do though, here's a gem I'm putting in the show: their cover of "Suicide is Painless".
The interesting thing about MSP's version is that it was the most successful single at that time in 1992, reaching #7 in the UK charts - partly due to it being a double A-Side single to help the Spastics Society. The song was originally released under the epic three-disc Ruby Trax (NME's Roaring Forty), with over forty cover tracks.
I swear, one of these days, this kind of useless trivia will be useful.
