David Knight - 2nd June 2009

Extremely lo-fi video by Doug Hart for the Manics, hailing the spirit and creativity of their long-departed, highly charismatic bandmate Richie Edwards.

And that's Jenny Saville's painting Stare behind the band, which features on the cover of the new album - but was considered unsuitable, and effectively banned by UK supermarkets. Which is possibly why I didn't see it in Tesco's yesterday whilst purchasing my weekly copy of Nuts.
