The Holy Bible. Richie Edwards Legacy

February 1, 2015 marks exactly 20 years since the day when Richie Edwards checked out of his room at the London Embassy Hotel and disappeared without a trace, right before the start of the planned American tour. Two weeks later, his empty car was found at Seversky Bridge.

We will not argue about what happened to the mysterious guitarist Manic Street Preachers today, but rather use this day as an occasion to once again listen to Richie’s main legacy – the album “The Holy Bible”. And so that the songs are fully revealed to readers of BritishWave.ru, below we provide a small guide on the main references, names and titles in these thirteen songs.

A little talk about love. Interview with Father John Misty

For many years, Joshua Tilman writes songs: for a while he was a drummer of Fleet Foxes, and after that he recorded 2 albums as Father John Misty.

Due to the fact that the interview was taken on the eve of Valentine’s Day, Stefan Greiner devoted the column “A Little Talk About …” to the topic of love. This is no coincidence: Tilman’s album “I Love You, Honeybear” is filled with love, oysters, sex and massacres.

I have wanted to write to you for so long … I was looking for words and clumsily building expressions, secretly hoping that someday my letter will be published to you on adme.ru and dozens of readers will write “This is so inspiring!”. But then I realized that I really didn’t want this at all. I wanted you to forget what britishwave.ru, adme.ru and just “www” in any form are.

You are already changing the fourth headphones for this month and I don’t blame you at all. You get bored with your homemade “cool riffs” and “like these parties”. Yes, and night hangs in YouTube – this is also okay, even despite the fact that you do not go to school, because you sleep off. Would YouTube be in my youth – I would do that too. By the way, the next time you surf there, be sure to see how Hendrix fuses his guitar. The coolest video, Bellamy (well, the guy from Muse) after him took up the music, while Continue reading
