Hi and welcome
What setlist do you have? This would be the one from the May 14th, according to a Youtube bootleg:

01- 7171-551
02- A hard way to die
03- Babe I'm gonna leave you
04- Hard way to live
05- The storm
06- Codine
07- Someone is calling
08- Razorblade and rattlesnake
09- Many are called but few get up
10- Bananas

Maybe C'mon and Romain were played too?

Hi All,

I'm new here and this may have been answered before.

I am trying to tie down the setlist.  Ive seen several and I'm not sure which one to trust.  I have the music files from a couple of seeds and it is my intention to remaster this show including pitch adjustments, etc.

Thanks for any help

Man - General Discussion / Photos from Man @ The Half Moon, Putney, 15/03/2023

Some photos I took on the night. I struggled with the lighting a bit. Sorry they have taken so long.
Everyone above a 'certain age' here should recognise the name of Andrew Lauder, he signed Man to LIberty/UA.

Co-writer Mick Houghton recently appeared on the Word in Your Ear podcast with UK music industry/publishing stalwarts Mark Ellen and David Hepworth to talk about the book:

Andrew Lauder started the Radar, F-Beat and Demon labels, worked at Liberty, Stiff and United Artists and signed (or licensed) and helped shape the careers of countess acts we’ve loved over the years, among them the Bonzos, Hawkwind, Captain Beefheart, JJ Cale, Nick Lowe, Creedence Clearwater, Elvis Costello, Can, Dr Feelgood, Stranglers and the Stone Roses. He was one of the main architects of the whole world of independent labels. Mick Houghton has written his memoir – Happy Trails – and talked to us here about …
… the Denmark Street days when the music business was just a village.
… the complete list of journalists on Brinsley Schwarz’s famously catastrophic press trip to the Fillmore East in 1970.
… why ‘the Beat Merchants’ album was the UK Nuggets.
… the old world of the ‘70s rock and roll when the record industry was part of the packaged goods business and gigs got stopped for 20 minutes because of a power cut.
 … the golden age of rock samplers – Gutbucket, Greasy Truckers Party etc.
… and the LIBERTY WANTS TALENT! ad that brought us the Bonzos, the Idle Race, Family and Elton John & Bernie Taupin. 

There's quite a bit in the video about Man, from c 20 minutes in.... why the music press hated them, Greasy Truckers Party gig & album, how they were signed to Liberty/UA, the innovative marketing & album covers for Live at the Padgett Rooms, Christmas at the Patti, Be Good To Yourself.

Apart from those bits, though, the whole thing is worth a listen, as are many of the other Word in Your Ear videos.

eg Gary Kemp and "the greatest record ever made" at where, among many other anecdotes, you can discover how Paul Simon came up with the song Mother and Child Reunion (Gary Kemp was there!).

Man's appearance at Cu. Mumbles has been re-located to Hangar 18 in the centre of Swansea. Tickets for the earlier venue remain valid. Same date, same time.

Thank you RJ.

I'm still in touch with my old English teacher. I should ask him though he was English Lit not English Language.

I have a great story about him, Shakespeare's Winter Tale at Stratford Upon Avon, and my extremely weak bladder. I'll wait until I write my book.

Not as good a story though about when I met the great Kingsley Ward. Now that was funny.

There we go. Another thread on the forum going off topic like a great MJ solo before getting back (hopefully) on track. Eeeee... it's like the old days

British English uses the plural for "nouns of multitude", groups, teams, etc., so it is Man are, The Beatles were,
American English follows the grammatical number, e.g.  Aerosmith is, but The New York Dolls were, because dolls are plural
What they do if a band's name is a noun that is both singular and plural, like sheep, I have no idea

It's all very well name-dropping wormholes and some blinkin' horsehead nebula, the important question is...

Should it be 'Man is' and not ' Man are'?

Here's a note to myself from some time ago (I can't recall when) that I just unearthed when clearing out some old folders.

"Man are about the transitions. Riding the wormhole and emerging at the outer edges of the horsehead nebula."

No idea where I was going with this, but I did at least get started.
