Cover of The Holy Bible

From The Holy Bible and 22 other releases

“Faster/P.C.P.” is the double A-side lead single released by Manic Street Preachers from their third studio album, The Holy Bible.

The band performed “Faster” on Top of the Pops with lead singer James Dean Bradfield wearing an IRA-style balaclava with his first name scrawled over his forehead, with the rest of the band wearing military regalia. Many viewers interpreted this as a show of support for the IRA and the BBC told the band that a record number of complaints had been received.

Vic Reeves, presenting the show, said of the song, “I really enjoyed that record. Did you Bob?”.
