Manic Street Preachers Debut TV Appearance – Video Special #3

Another week, another pile of digitally archived Memorex VHS cassettes.

This is the second episode of the second series of the Snub TV and aired in, ummmm, 1991?

Making their TV debut are a young, cheeky Manic Street Preachers full of piss and vinegar but avoiding eye contact in an endearing adolescent way – “I’d rather never have to do more than 50 (concerts) in my whole life”, “We’ll never write a love song (or ballad) ever”.

Their feature starts at the 11:20 mark. Although it’s available elsewhere on t’internet in isolation, I like the context that the whole show provides.

Their peers in the same programme? Dinosaur Jr, Spirea X, The Pixies, The Darkside, The Scientist and Front Line Assembly.
