Nicky Wire of Manic Street Preachers - The British Masters - Episode 9

In the ninth chapter of our British Masters series, Quietus editor John Doran meets up with Manic Street Preachers main spokesman Nicky Wire.
In Johns words: "The Manics appeared in the early 90s antagonising nearly everyone they came across with their fiercely anti-fashion stance. They put out a homespun philosophy of culture alienation, boredom and despair wrapped in fake leopard skin and lipstick. They rejected slacker culture in favour of proud working class intellectualism and self-determination. Forget the Libertines, Manic Street Preachers are the last truly great mainstream British rock band."
