Manic Street Preachers are a Welsh alternative rock band, formed in 1986 in Blackwood and consisting of James Dean Bradfield (lead vocals, lead guitar), Nicky Wire (bass guitar, lyrics) and Sean Moore (drums). They are often colloquially known as “The Manics”, or simply, “Manics”. Originally a quartet, the band became a trio when primary lyricist and rhythm guitarist Richey Edwards disappeared on 1 February 1995. Their early combination of androgynous glam imagery and critical social lyrics about “culture, alienation, boredom and despair” gained them a loyal following and cult status.
