6. Translate: 'Soy la Man tambor. Que es Jazz?'
well, this is easy for me, I suppose it means:
"I am the drummer. What is jazz?"

I don't want to rake over the coals but, given Martin's domicile and the location of the gigs, he could call the band MANN

Morning all,I clicked on the homepage of Mr Ace's sight but its not working for me.
So does this mean its Martin who will be using the Man name?If so who will be playing with him?

I find it bizarre that gigs are announced for 'Man' in 2009, yet there appears to be no mention of who will be in the band, if indeed there is one.

I've been trying to find out more...songs, players, anything.....we know Martin and Josh, but not the others.

James has played with Josh in two bands - Ringolevio who can be heard here http://www.myspace.com/ringoleviomusic as as previously mentioned with Omigosh (with Martin) who can be heard here http://www.myspace.com/omigoshtheband . As Jules has already pointed out, James is good....I presume Rene is one of Martin's contacts, but I haven't been able to find out what he sounds like, or who he has played with.

If anybody can expand on this, then please do so.

Rene Robrahn has played with Bobby Byrd and others from a soul/funk background.

Whether http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Splcg8dB09k is typical, we'll have to wait and see.

Thanks Tim, from this bit of info I've now been able to find quite a few references to him.....obviously capable, and more experienced than Josh/James...

Hmm, but useful...let's say Rene also demonstrates desirable qualities such as flexibility and adaptability!


Based on these few examples I would say that Martin has assembled a line up who are clearly capable, are experienced live, are comfortable being recorded (or as comfortable as you'll ever be in the circumstances), can write songs, are multi-instrumental (Josh plays drums in omigosh, james plays bass in ringowotsit) and have a quirky element in James. And Martin!

Putting aside the issues that have led to the formation of this band - I'm looking forward to hearing them.

A jazzer - maybe the drums within Man will be back to a sensible volume like Terry could manage. Hurrah!

So can someone confirm please. Rene and James (feel like I know them so well) - are they confirmed members of 'Man' or not?

Thanks

That was certainly the line-up that Martin spoke of on the phone just before Christmas, which was after his post here. I'd say yes until confirmed otherwise!!!
