Mouth-Off BONUS episode part 2: Be Pure Be Vigilant Behave

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Mouth-Off is a podcast for marginalised groups to get their stories heard. Previous episodes have covered a variety of topics from class divides, inequality, and gender, to mental health issues, disability, and religion. 

Last week, we released part 1 of a music themed BONUS mini-series called
Be Pure Be Vigilant Behave. It was about Welsh rock band, Manic Street Preachers - a band that we consider to be the ultimate band for marginalised issues. In part 2, Clary Saddler interviewed Leighton Evans - Senior Lecturer in Media Theory at Swansea University, Adam Scott-Glasspool – the co-host of the podcast series What is Music? and Emily Hyatt - the admin of the Facebook group Picturesque - James Dean Bradfield Adoration. In today's episode of Mouth-Off, we discuss the socio and cultural aspects of their body of
work, specifically in relation to Manic Street Preachers’ songs that have referenced class
divides, disability, self-harm, substance abuse, gender, race, sexuality and religion.
