Image of Triptych


Manic Street Preachers were and remain one of the most interesting significant and best-loved bands of the past thirty years Their third album The Holy Bible (1994) is generally acknowledged to be their most enduring and fascinating work and one of the most compelling and challenging records of the nineties Triptych reconsiders The Holy Bible from three separate intersecting angles combining the personal with the political history with memory and popular accessibility with intellectual attention to the album's depth and complexity Rhian E Jones considers The Holy Bible in terms of its political context setting it within the de-industrialised Welsh landscape of the 1990s; Daniel Lukes looks at the album's literary and artistic sources; and Larissa Wodtke analyses the way the album's links with philosophical ideas of memory and the archive
