Rare Manic Street Preacher Footage Surfaces Online

Rare Manic Street Preachers Footage Surfaces Online -

A rare 13-minute clip of Manic Street Preachers performing a gig in Aldershot in 1991 has now surfaced online.

The rare live footage features the band performing tracks 'Faceless Sense Of Void' and 'Repeat' with bandmate Richey Edwards.

A short caption by promoter Jo Bartlett accompanies the video which reads,

"This film has been in an attic for twenty years and has only just been unearthed. You can't hear James Dean Bradfield's vocals at the start as Ben (the camera man) is standing to the side of the stage. However this is where Richey is playing and so it makes it all the more wonderful."

The gig was recorded on February 16 1991 as the band toured to promote 'Motown Junk' and is the only known recorded footage of The Buzz Club performance.

A new Manic Street Preachers album is scheduled for release before the end of 2013.
