CA07 Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible | Part 1 Riot Act

    • Music Commentary

In the first part of a double Classic Album Series, Steve and Remfry look back at Manic Street Preachers third album The Holy Bible. The boys talk about the mindset of the band going into recording, from the death of their manager Phillip Hall to the pressure the ever growing cult surrounding enigmatic guitarist Richey Edwards put on them, and the general feel of alternative rock in 1994 in the aftermath of the death of Kurt Cobain. They then deep dive into the record itself, picking apart the themes and ideology of what is certainly one of the darkest, most nihilistic and disturbing albums in the history of popular music, before retracing Edwards steps after his mysterious disappearance in early 1995. Part two is available at patreon.com/riotactpodcast.
