REWIND: Manic Street Preachers - 'Elvis Impersonator: Blackpool Pier' (Live)

It's hard to believe that the Manic Street Preachers masterpiece 'Everything Must Go' is now over twenty years old. Recently re-released as a deluxe edition featuring extra tracks, live material and more, the band's fourth studio album was released on 20 May 1996 and was their first following the disappearance of lyricist and rhythm guitarist Richey Edwards. Released at the height of Britpop in the mid-1990s, the LP took the band to a higher level of mainstream success, reaching number 2 in the UK albums chart. It also won the Manics a couple of Brit Awards and shifted over two million copies. Recently the band have been playing the album in full to celebrate it's 20th anniversary. God Is In The TV have published a great review of the album's reissue which can be found HERE.
