The Manic Street Preachers are the UK rock band who have won a great deal of critical acclaim over the years, but still their history is inextricably bound with the mystery surrounding the troubled lyricist Ritchey Edwards, who disappeared in 1995, only three albums into their eight album career.

In the beginning, the Manics were heavily influenced by punk and their gigs were riotous affairs. They developed a loyal, if energetic, audience and their debut album, Generation Terrorists (1992) reached a respectable No.13 on the UK album charts. Gold Against the Soul (1993) took a more ‘grungy’ direction and met with mixed reviews, though it also performed well in the UK charts, reaching No.8. As they prepared for their third album it was clear that Ritchey Edwards was having problems and he checked into a private psychiatric clinic in 1994 to try to sort himself out. The Holy Bible was released in the August of that year and though the critics loved it and it went on to be considered their seminal album, it sold poorly, and was not even released in America – a market they had consistently failed to wow. Just a few months later, Edwards went missing. He has never been found.
