So what do we think about Guy Manning.
I'm going to pop over to the Peel for his gig on 6th June but I don't really know his stuff. Sounds a bit Floydie????
It's in the post!


I think he's great as part of the Tangent - don't know his solo stuff at all.

But him and Andy Tillison made a great comedy duo at Summer's End!
be rich big cat small talk get fat sign this see through choose me fkkk you



Don't know The Tangent's stuff, and have heard only a couple of Manning's albums (Anser's Tree and Number 10- I prefer the latter). But I bought those both on the strength of seeing him and his acoustic band at the CRS a couple of months ago (supporting Magenta).

I thought he was a great performer and an interesting song-writer. More 'prog' than 'rock', maybe. Sort of folky in a Jethro Tull-ish way, but with a fairly original style (or so I thought!). I like it, and might pick up a few more albums at some point.




I have all his albums, and i like to call it,'Prog Folk' :mrgreen:  Bit of both, Can't wait to see him.
