Artist of the Week: Manic Street Preachers

This week, my Artist of the Week is: Manic Street Preachers. I saw them perform live during my recent attendance at the taping of "The Friday Night Project" (see, "The Friday Night Project," 17 July, 2007). They performed their second single, "Autumn Song," from their latest album, "Send Away the Tigers." I like the song, so here they are. The delay was due to the time it took to acquire them as "friends" on Myspace. I first got into the Manics back in 1998, when they had their first number one single, "If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next." The band are from Wales, which is nice. I have a soft spot for Wales, as my second fiancee was from there and I have spent a lot of time visiting Wales. Sadly, the Manics are socialists, advocates of a misinformed economic policy. Ironically, they are enjoying the success of capitalism. So long as they keep making good music, I suppose we can ignore their political views. You can check them out at their Myspace page: .
