When Ginger changed the words of the Wildhearts 29x The Pain from "Miss You Kurt Cobain" to "Where Are You Hiding Richey James" it seemed to be the most poignant of tributes. While so many indie kids & Britpopers latched onto Richey's legend in their usual manner befitting an (inappropriate) death cult, it was as an early 90s rock n roll band that the Richey era Manics will be remembered best. Out there working the clubs with the likes of the Wildhearts made Richey a hero for real fans. I can remember the first time I saw Richey and The Manic Street Preachers like it was yesterday, and thinking then, just as I do now, what a sensational album Generation Terrorists is.
