“It Couldn’t Last Without The Hurt”

A new Manics album, then, and the metronomic tick of time. It brings with it not so much an album as a set of memories and touchstones, a gallery of images, slogan-daubed jeans and beery gigs, of making it my own way, finding out what that way was, who was part of it. I haven’t reached the point where those decisions are without regret but a line that whips back and forth on the opening track keeps coming to mind, and as much as I hold anything close, it’s the way we muddled through and who the titans were who held it all together. They’re the ones that we should hold up.
