Personal Quote:

The Manics [Manic Street Preachers] are great because there are layers to them. There were no bands who liked Guns N' Roses who weren't bad metal. No bands who liked The Clash who weren't crappy punk bands. And no band who could read, with the late example of The Smiths, who were any good. And the Manic Street Preachers, ludicrous and daft as they were, meant it. See more »

Trivia:

"David Quantick is one of the best kept secrets in the world of writing. He's smart, funny and unique" - Neil Gaiman.
