Guy Manning - new CD
Latest News - Music News
Sunday, 20 August 2006


`Anser's Tree' is the eighth album from Guy Manning and represents
yet another musical departure from the more acoustic based 2005 `One
Small Step…" album.  The album traces the history of one family told though the eyes
of their last descendent, searching on the `last remaining hill' to
discover the secrets of his own past and uncover the Universal
patterns that surround us all.

For this elaborate seven song cycle, Guy has assembled a remarkable team of supporting musicians. With the expert seasoned talent of Ian 'Walter' Fairbairn on fiddles & the exceptional performance of flautist Stephen Dundon (on loan from UK artists "Molly Bloom"), the opening tracks have a distinctly folk rock feel; but, as we have come to expect from Guy, this is not an album that remains static and the music leads the listener through the Ages and the changing face of music with each story being told in intimate detail. Add to the mix, sax goddess Laura Fowles on saxes & vocals plus guest keyboards maestro Andy Tillison (from The Tangent) and these diverse arrangements jump into life!

The styles range from swirling acoustic numbers similar to his debut album Tall stories for small children and One Small Step... through to more complex ensemble arrangements reminiscent of The Ragged Curtain and The View From My Window albums.

David Million steps wonderfully into the role of lead guitarist, providing a welcome bluesy rock edge to the pieces.

Guy has been invited to play at the two day Summer's End Festival on October 1st 2006.
Guy will be appearing alongside artists such as The Flower Kings, White Willow, Pendragon, Flamborough Head, Credo, Ezra, Pure Reason Revolution, Darwin's Radio, Strangefish, Almost Eden, John Beck & John Mitchell

It Bites replace Kino?
Latest News - Music News
Sunday, 20 August 2006

Earlier we brought the news that It Bites is reformning. Now it seems rumours have been pointing at the possibility that It Bites will simply replace Kino, at least as a live act. The Kino gig planned at the Classic Rock Society in December has been cancelled only to be replaced by -you guessed it- It Bites.

The Kino gig advertised for Saturday 2nd December 2006 at the Oakwood Centre, Rotherham has now been cancelled. In its place will be the second UK gig by the returning It Bites. Prices and venue remain the same. Support band will still be Touchstone.
It Bites have been off the scene for many years and a return has been on the cards for some time so the CRS is proud to be able to present the band on its return. The line-up will be Bob Dalton on drums, John Beck on keyboards, Dick Nolan on bass and the newcomer, the current CRS Guitarist of the Year, John Mitchell on guitar and vocals.

John Mitchell once again denied all the speculations that this will be the end of Kino on the Kino Forum.

Frost* and It Bites are the only two things which are currently in the throws of activity. Like all things i do, i am EXTREMELY fond and proud of both Frost and It Bites and I am very fortunate indeed to be involved in two brilliant bands. Funnily enough the IB guys are totally blown away by the FROST album (BD & JB both think it is the freshest thing they have heard in yonks) and you just ask Jem...JB and the music of It Bites was one of his biggest influences growing up (much like myself).

Like i have always said, all i do is music and if we plan far enough ahead then there is easily time enough for more than one thing!
After all, its not like any of the things i am involved in are like U2 and are touring for 3 months at a time. I just like to keep busy and do different interesting things, which i am very fortunate to be able to do.

The only problem is that people will probably be sick of the sight of me by the end of it all! :-)

Btw...re the Kino show.... IB were offered a very cool tour by the original IB promoter and had to fit into a very, very small window of opportunity. Unfortunately that window fell right on top of our Kino date, but we didnt want to lose the whole IB tour.
We did what we thought was the best thing to do under the circumstances and i apologise to anyone who has been inconvenienced or let down. And sorry to Martin Hudson for making his life unecessarily awkward! Sorry Mart!

The Kino show IS being rescheduled as we speak, you have my word! Watch this space over the next couple of days.
