Manic Street Preachers on returning to The Holy Bible

James Dean Bradfield, Sean Moore and Nicky Wire talk to John Wilson about performing their classic Holy Bible album, 20 years after it was released.

In series four of Mastertapes, coming to Radio 4 in November and December 2014, James, Sean and Nicky talk and play their way back to 1994 and the making of The Holy Bible - the band's third album, a lyrical and musical expression of anger, hatred and despair. It is also an epitaph of sorts for Richey Edwards, the band's lyricist who battled depression, anorexia and alcoholism before disappearing just months after the album's release.
