CA07 Manic Street Preachers – Everything Must Go | Part 2


In the concluding part of this Manic Street Preachers double headed Classic Albums Series podcast, Steve and Remfry discuss the bands commercial behemoth and phoenix from the flames that was 1996’s Everything Must Go record. Starting at the point of not knowing if they were still to be a band after guitarist Richey Edwards disappeared in early 1995, through to the band writing the iconic A Design For Life, the stylistic shift, both artistically and visually, after The Holy Bible and the critical and commercial acclaim they achieved once the record was released. We finish by trying to sum up exactly what happened, and how it happened, during this period, and what the legacy of the Manics truly is over a quarter of a century after their most definitive era.
