Re-recording of [O3] ‘UK Channel Boredom’

Of all the strange discographical decisions made during the early phase of Manic Street Preachers, few are stranger than the decision to half-heartedly re-record throwaway early track [O3] ‘UK Channel Boredom’ and sling it out as the nearest thing to an original B-side on the Columbia You Love Us single. In this re-retitled version, almost nothing is done to improve upon the pedestrian composition and hollow lyrics of the original. Exhaustion or writer’s block might explain, if not excuse, this very weak piece of work which, quite rightfully, is now all but forgotten.
