Man - Colwyn Bay FC Social Club - Sat 20th June 2009
« on: June 21, 2009, 08:27:55 PM »
Great night in Old Colwyn last night. Really good set from the band, that improved as the night went on. The KON material was OK, but didn't really stand out on the night for me on the night - shame, as Kingdom Of Noise (the track) has lodged itself in my brain a bit and I was hoping for more. Of the older stuff, Mad On Her, Popemobile, Manillo & Man With X-Ray Eyes were all very good. However, things really notched up a gear at the end of the main set with an excellent, well appreciated MACBFU and a splendid Romain & Conflict of Interest to finish off.

Well worth the trip to Old Colwyn - thanks to Lloydie for putting it on. George & Bob's band next  ;)

One final point. Anyone who thinks that James Beck is in there just to make up the numbers is sadly mistaken. He is good, and he is going to get better.

Photos from Colwyn Bay now on my web site http://homepage.ntlworld.com/markdav/index.htm  ;)

Well, I guess Lloydie is the best person, and he lists his number here http://www.manband-archive.com/forum/index.php?topic=413.0.

I do not have a clue, but am quite happy to travel to York  :)

It would probably be worth making contact with the band's UK booking agent, Rhys Mwyn:

Well, I hate to be pedantic Michael but y and w are both vowels in the Welsh Language. 

So it's pronounced rheess mooeen. There's no English equivalent of rh but think of the way the lovely Cerys sings Road Rage and you'll get the idea.

Ah, Cerys.....

Is this what they call Irritable Vowel Syndrome?
