The Manics

The Manic Street Preachers have promised much over the years, without ever really delivering anything apart from a few good riffs, and some paranoid Marxist lyrics. 'Everlasting', however, is a beautiful song, and takes me back to October 1998, huddling in the sub-zero temperatures of a minimalistic Poole house-share, watching the Manics on 'Later, with Jools Holland'. Tempus fugit.
