Manic St Preachers

Something has always bothered me and I am hoping a fan of the band can help clarify things. Is it Manic Street Preachers as in "Preachers on a road called Manic Street"? Or is it Manic Street Preachers as in "Street-preachers who are manic"? Is it Manic Street Preachers? Or Manic Street Preachers?



It's Manic Street Preachers la.

"Street preachers who are manic."

Apparently, legend has it that when the band used to busk around Wales someone referred to James' singing style as 'like a manic street preacher'.
