They're from South Wales and lumber songs with titles such as A Town Called Hypocrisy and Always All Ways (Apologies, Glances and Messed-up Chances), but that's as far as similarities to the Manic Street Preachers go. Pontypridd's Lostprophets are head honchos of their own specialised scene, which blends the essences of McFly, Green Day and Topshop on a Saturday afternoon. The audience for this kind of thing is at the younger end of the teenage scale, and crammed full of girls, who will be much taken with Liberation Transmission's photos of the quintet at their floppy-fringed hunkiest.
