Celebrating the past, present and future of the legendary Welsh rock band Man.

With roots firmly planted in the fertile ground of the South Wales rock scene, Man were formed in 1968 and, pausing for a brief intake of breath in the late 1970's, continue as a recording and gigging band to this day.

Man's latest album, 'Anachronism Tango', was released by Point in February 2019, accompanied by a limited edition CD EP 'Mojo Train'.

Along the way many have swung their kit bags on board, leapt into their hammocks and joined the ship's crew. Some have stayed, while some have left and several have done both. Repeatedly. This site contains many articles on the band's history, memorabilia, recorded works and those of the various friends and relations whose paths have been crossed at some point. It's a work in progress and perhaps, now the Forth Bridge has at last received a decent lick of paint, one of the few remaining continuous labours.

For the latest Manband news, mixed in with all the scurrilous gossip, rumour and general tom-foolery, please do come and join us on the Manband Forum (see the Manband Forum link in the left menu), or visit the related Facebook pages (See links in the Community and Links menu) .

While the band continues, some elements of its past can never be repeated. RIP: Ray Williams; John Cipollina; Micky Jones; Clive John; Ken Whaley; Phil Ryan; Deke Leonard; Will Youatt; John McKenzie. Never forgotten.

To mark those who also served, RIP: Vyvyan Morris; Geoff "Sully" Sullivan; Peter Williams; Mick Williams. We salute you.
