Manics Top 50s - 23rd August 2013

I have great pleasure in announcing today's top 50 from respected journalist Keith Cameron, no doubt in good spirits following his coffee and croissant with Nicky Wire recently!!  As well as a distinguished and continuing career with a number of top music magazines over the years, Keith may also be familiar to you as the author of the piece inside the booklet of the Holy Bible 10th Anniversary Edition.  As you'll see from the chart, his association with that album is no coincidence, coming out on top in the mini-chart by era.  His choice of number one is certainly a very popular one in these charts, although a surprise placing at number 2 for 'Prologue to History', which has been putting in a decent showing recently in a bid to be the highest placed B-side.

Thanks to Keith for taking the time out to contribute to our chart and also to JamGaw for his excellent recruiting skills, who incidentally suggests that we go and read Keith's just published Mudhoney biography as a thank you.  And as this is a place to celebrate words and music, and not product placement, we're sure he wouldn't mind if you just got it out of the library!  They do give us power after all.....

We are now up to 40 charts, so our goal of at least 50 top 50s is getting closer, especially considering we have 5 on the go at the moment!!
