Both records were released through Sony Music Labels.
The successive successes toast to Hall Or Nothing’s “best UK chart run ever,” according to the company.
For Manic Street Preachers, it was the Welsh band’s first UK album in 23 years, with 27,000 weekly chart sales. According to the Official Charts Company, 91% of those chart sales came from physical sales.
The Script reached their sixth number one in Great Britain with Tales From The Script – Greatest Hits and secured the top spot with 23,000 chart sales. About 87% were physical sales.
Martin Hall, who founded Hall Or Nothing with his late brother Philip Hall in 1990, also run Isle Of Wight duo Wet Leg, which recently signed with Domino.

“[I take] Great pleasure from the Manics to get a number 1 album after 23 years of waiting. “
Martin Hall said: “[I take] Great joy from the Manics to claim a # 1 album after 23 years since they last took first place, and that after five consecutive near miss numbers. The band exists just like us. “
“Having The Script (which Hall co-manages with Simon Moran) enjoy their sixth consecutive UK and Irish No. 1 album this week means all of our Christmass are coming at once.
“And the collaboration with the Sony team has been great, it has been a real collaboration across the board.”
“Martin is one of the most loyal and committed managers in the industry.”

Jason Iley MBE, Sony Music UK Chairman and CEO added, “Martin is one of the most loyal and dedicated managers in the industry.
“It’s been a pleasure working on multiple # 1s over the years, but to have two chart-toppers from two of the most important artists in the industry in the last month is testament to how great he really is.”Music business worldwide
