    "They are deceived who flatter themselves that the ignorant and debased slave has no conception of the magnitude of his wrongs. They are deceived who imagine that he arises from his knees with back lacerated and bleeding, cherishing only a spirit of meekness and forgiveness. A day may come - it will, if his prayer is heard, a terrible day of vengeance, when the master in his turn will cry in vain for mercy." Solomon Northup, 1854

    One of the band's more action packed singles and certainly one of the best from their rockier years, the 'Faster/PCP' AA single is by far one of the greatest released by the Manics. 'Faster' is an anarchic blow out of power chords, simple in it's layout but incredibly effective it documents a young man posturing his mental superiority while on a path of self destruction (it also happened to be the only track from 'The Holy Bible' to be included in the band's 2 disc singles collection).
    On the other step is 'P.C.P.', which features a strong post punk bass lick and a rapid style that compliments the other A-Side really well. There also seems to be a pang of early Pop Punk, which just proves how creatively changeable The Manic Street Preachers are.
    The second half of the single are made up of two b-sides - the short and equally unforgiving 'Sculpture Of Man', which is an original piece by the band but comes across as a cover - and a live version of 1990 track 'New Art Riot' played in E Minor, probably the least catchy of the bunch but a perfect way to round out the release.
    If you're looking for a way to get into Manic Street Preachers earlier stuff you need look no further than this AA Side single, it stands today as a boot up the arse to authority and is sure to get you riled up!
