Also far from the center of town, this grungy bar is set in a former motorcycle repair garage and takes its name from a Manic Street Preachers song. It’s the go-to joint for live music enthusiasts as they feature bands from indie record labels, many of whom are still working on their debut albums. Their six night line-up can range from indie pioneers like Stylish Nonsense or Day Tripper (now Ooh & The Ballyhoo) and inter guests like Pussy & The Learjets.
