The new acoustic album by Manic Street Preachers sounds as if they haven’t lost their agit disco punch. In a review by Rick Pearson in the Metro he reckons it is their ‘bitterest’ record since ‘Holy Bible’ in 1994. My attention was brought to the political importance of the Manics, especially to the youth of South Wales, by the Agit Disco selection made by Sian Addicott. The track ’30 year War’ was written before Thatcher died – “it’s a critique of the attack on the working classes over the last 30 years” James Dean Bradfield.
