(Eva) Catharina (Julia), I'm from Norway, I like the Manic Street Preachers, James, and reading I apologise in advance if I might seem a little depressing at times. It has it's reasons. I am am truly passionate about women's and disabled's rights
Do you think the Manic Street Preachers are sexy enough?
James:Obviously we’re not as sexy without Richey. I’m not quite sure. I think Nick is. That’s enough. I think what we were at the start was very sexy, just boys prepared to dress up in tight white jeans and show their little bump ‘n’ grinds, and be political in the most obtuse senses and be little rascals was very sexy. But we can’t be that now, can we?
Sean:No, not at all. Just because we’ve become old and bloated, maybe to the record company it’s a problem; myself, I don’t care. It’s just marketing, isn’t it? I suppose it’s like cars - people tend to go for the more sleek, shiny, daring-looking cars. As you get older you start moving towards the Volvos; practical boring greyish sorts of cars.
Nicky:I think we were and I think we can be. I’m not sure we are at the moment.
