It’s been four years since their last album and much has changed in the world of Manic Street Preachers . David Owens meets the band as they release their new album Resistance Is Futile. There's a cloud hanging over the Manics and it’s not just because of the rain that’s beating a path from the grey, slate scratched sky on the outskirts of Newport. This is Wales after all, as wet as a country can get without officially being declared part of the sea. Close to civilisation but through winding lanes and hedgerows, and at the head of a valley, there lies Manic Street Preachers’ new home Door To The River. While the name of their former studio Faster, which they departed in late 2016, bristled with the furious polemic of the song it was named after, Door To The River breathes in a lung full of country air. It’s not quite Last Of The Summer Wine with James, Nicky and Sean recast as Compo, Clegg and Foggy, but it does see the middle-aged, former firebrands … [Read more...] about Manic Street Preachers on new album, new studio and turning 50

0 Have your say For their new album Cocoa Sugar, Edinburgh band Young Fathers challenged themselves to leave their sonic comfort zone, writes Fiona Shepherd. Down in the bowels of Young Fathers HQ, there is a choice to be made – do we do the interview in chilly studio or sweaty lounge? Given that the Edinburgh trio have a self-confessed reputation for thoughtful dissent in the ranks, it’s probably just as well that Ally Massaquoi is running late, leaving Graham “G” Hastings to make an executive decision.
