Synopsis :

When Welsh assault rock'n'rollers The Manic Street Preachers burst onto the British guitar band stage in 1992, they put the rest of the contenders to shame. In the wake of dance culture, rock bands had mostly abandoned the pure energy and subversive anger of punk and rock in favour of a laid-back hybrid of beats and murmurs. From a small town in Wales, The Manics reclaimed the purity of the form, playing their glam punk with a religious fervour. They had better clothes, slogans and interview technique than anyone since the late '70s and over two albums, '92s Generation Terrorists and '93s Gold Against The Soul, James Dean Bradfield, Richey Edwards, Nicky Wire and Sean Moore fast-tracked from cult heroes to national talking point, offending and confronting as they went and firing off brilliant anthems for the alienated. The self-destructive tendencies of guitarist Richey Edwards provided a melodramatic subplot to the music, as he progressed from carving the words 4 REAL into his arm during an interview, to his final unsolved disappearance prior to the release of '94s The Holy Bible. Like Nirvana, The Manics were always more than just another capable band, and their rise to international stadium-filling status in the aftermath of Edwards' exit has not entirely dissipated their aura. Japanese photographer Mitch Ikeda began shooting the band on their early tours in Japan and became closely involved with their visuals. His elegant images of before and after Richey brilliantly capture their rock-stars-in-leopard-skin flamboyance, as well as framing the fragility and existential doubt that lurked behind the vicious wall of chords. Like Anton Corbjin with US, Ikeda got inside their identity and defined them absolutely. This book, the official memento of ten years of Manic mayhem, includes reminiscence and commentary from the remaining members of the band and an original foreword by Nicky Wire.

Description de la librairie

Since its opening in 1991 within the premises of a small model factory at Alnwick Station, Barter Books has grown well beyond original expectations. Starting off in what was the ticket and parcel office of the original Station, the bookshop has expanded down the platforms and through the waiting rooms, until it now covers over one-quarter of the whole Station site. This translates into an area exceeding 8000 square feet and containing over 350,000 books on more than three miles of shelving. Now houses the Famous Writers Mural - 40 feet long by 18 feet high. The bookshop also sells secondhand DVDs, videos and music (CDs, LPs, cassettes, sheet music), as well as a small but growing section of artists' prints. And then there are the shop's many extra features! These include an open fire in the winter, coffee and cookies, a model railway running above the book columns, a mini-cybercafe, generous seating and browsing areas, a children's room, and dozens of glass cases containing many of the more interesting antiquarian books. A final note: during the enlargement process the owners took (and are taking!) particular pleasure in restoring, as they can, various features of the Station. This so far includes the original North Eastern Railway cast iron fireplaces, two of the Station clocks, a drinking fountain, and various waiting rooms. Most dramatic of all, however, was the restoration of part of the glass roof. That was when we all stood about watching as the sun came streaming in for the first time in many years to bring the wonderful old Station visually back to life. The very latest addition has been a forty foot mural celebrating the names of those who worked at Alnwick Station in its railway days - over 400 names plus the coats of arms of the three railway companies involved.
