Death of a Polaroid – A Manics Family Album

Nicky Wire

The first of two titles by the Manic Street Preachers’ bassist and lyricist, Nicky Wire. For more than twenty years and from Blackwood, Wales to Tokyo, Japan, Nicky Wire has kept a personal visual history of the band in their various stages from Generation Terrorists through Holy Bible and right up to last year’s remarkable album, Postcards from a Young Man. Edited down from over 1,000 of Wire’s personal polaroids and with accompanying text by the man himself, Death of The Polaroid promises to be a rich, visual biography of one of the most loved and iconoclastic British bands of the past two decades.
