Featured Band: Maniscus

Ultimate Guitar

Hey hey, whats up? After a short New Year's holidays brake we are here and ready to impress you with the next featured UG band: Maniscus! Read the info below.

  • Band Bio/ History:

    Hi, we're Maniscus, don't ask what the name means because we' ve got no idea, but when chatting up women, we tend to use defenitions such as 'it's french for, men who are hung like horse', etc etc.

    Anyway, down to business, we're a 4 piece Emo-Rock band from Liverpool, UK, playing heavy chord progressions, fast riffs and solos, with powerful high pitched vocals and banging drums!

    Our musical influences are pretty varied, and strangely the music I write sounds almost nothing like the music I tend to listen to? Some of my favourite bands are AC/DC, the Darkness, Queen, Oasis, and any 70's classic rock - Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple etc!

    The other members of the band, Mark on Bass, Martin on Vocals and Karl (limo) on behind the kit have an enormous variety of taste, and a lot of our songs come from this massive amount of variation within our personal tastes, to create something very different, and difficult to categorise.

    We've been around for about 2 years now, starting at the end of high school predominantly as a way to pull girls! However, since then we've moved on a lot, and at 18 and 19 were now able to really travel and expand our music to try and reach the biggest audience we possibly can. We play gigs regularly around Liverpool, but are desperate for an opportunity to travel elsewhere - we'll play pretty much anywhere!

  • Interesting facts?:

    Hmmm, interesting facts? We successfully got 15 people in a shower cubicle in our changing rooms at a gig this year.

  • Why should people listen to our music?

    Hmmm, well were great for parties, jumping around, going mad too. We generally concentrate a lot on rhythm when we write, we want every song to be the kind of thing that makes you want to throw yourselves around, and so if you get to see us live, you can expect a hell of a night - if a few broken bones.

      quote:easily the best band to be featured so far, im loving that song, i guess its called last weeks girl! only too true
      easily the best band to be featured so far, im loving that song, i guess its called last weeks girl! anyway, keep up the good work, do you guys have a record deal?
      You play mainly to attract girls, you like some pretty cool 70's rock band, but I don't know how these are influencial to... emo rock. I won't bash you because you do have a band, which is a step higher than me, but I wonder how serious you are about the music, rather than the image.
      yeah its the downward bend of the surface of e water of a graduated cylinder..... but i wouldnt be telling anybody when they ask you what your nam means.
      well thanks a lot for your input - ***ing wanker. say something productive or dont say anything at all, and after the gig we did last night, im not taking any shit from a wanker like you, so good luck with your music career and for the rest of you who just wanna be critical and leave unproductive posts, go *** yourselves. Im sure that any other musicians agree with me that construcvitve criticism is always more than welcome, and if anyone has ideas about how we can improve our band, im always more than happy to hear, in fact im grateful, but if your just gonna say 'your shite' you can go *** yourself.
