The Manic Street Preachers' Distraught Over Failure

(Gibson) Bass player Nicky Wire was more than a little disappointed with The Manic Street Preachers' single "But Some Kind of Nothingness," which failed to make the U.K. Top 40.

According to the Daily Express he was distraught: "My excitement always turns into a real dose of fear when I'm waiting for a chart position or to find out whether the radio's going to play our record. It's like waiting for that envelope to drop through the door and see you've got a D in geography. I was quite distraught that "Some Kind of Nothingness," our single, missed the Top 40. I was gutted."

Taken from the band's new album, Postcards From a Young Man, the song features Ian McCulloch from Echo & the Bunnymen. more on this story
