askygoneonfire: 'Love' painted on to four fingers of a hand (love hand)
Day 1: First time you heard Manics.

I don't know really, sometime on the radio. They were always there. The first time I heard a song that actually penetrated was You Stole the Sun from My Heart, which I bought as a single - the first cd single I ever bought, no less. And my official first single I bought (in reality, the first single I bought was Pray, by Take That....yeah.)

I agonised over whether to get CD1 or CD2 and plumped for CD1 because it had actual different tracks as the b-side(s) rather than remixes.  The b-side was Socialist Serenade which, for 14 year old me, was a wee bit heavy.  I remember listening to it tentatively, a few times.  It was just...unlike everything else I owned and it remained in my record collection as something I kept going back to in the hope I'd...get it.  A few short years later - 2002 to be precise - I did.
