The new Manics b-sides: a short guide


In the style of the official Twitter account song descriptions:

Distractions: Wire ranting about technology (aw, bless) – kickass keyboard bit in 2nd verse, great solo – fun! rocker

I Know the Numbers: Bradders going solo acoustic – like a song from his solo album all stripped down – very pleasant, like acoustic James usually is

I’m Leaving You for Solitude: elegant, sophisticated – simple but extremely effective – the best of the bunch

Lost Voices: the missing link between Journal for Plague Lovers and the new era – obvious b-side – rather enjoyable however

Ostopolitik: they sure love making instrumentals these days – the brilliant piano part makes the song – guys start adding vocals to these instrumentals of yours, they always sound like they should have them.
