Jamendo Pro

Jamendo Pro has proved to be a great way of getting the music out there, I usually get about 6 or 7 plays each day in "public places".

Places playing the tunes include pubs, shops and hotels. One place in particular that caught my eye was Yves Rocher, the high street cosmetic store - my girlfriend shops there!

Behind the Veil also got used for an online movie but that's all I know. Unfortunately I don't know what the movie was or where to find it! So if you know, then please send me a link!

Likewise if you hear any of my tunes getting played anywhere at all, be sure to let me know!

Gig review

"Manny G, Live at D:cliq shows Luxembourg’s favourite Scottish minstrel take his one-man show from the depths of the Clausen taverns to the heady heights of city centre gig'dom by supporting Lucky Fonz III on a fresh yet ever so slightly crispy October's eve.

Far from troubadouring on and on about sensitivities, personal failings and all manner of emotional damage inflicted by others, our hero of the hour is not letting us out of here till we've surrendered to the tales of his own erections, overweight one night stands, cuckoo clocks and walking in the shoes of an alcoholic wife beater..... Vaudeville and variety!!!

Tonight's show is largely an airing of the album 'Sideshow' stripped bare and shifting the focus on to the lyrics. Manny is often without reserve, occasionally crude but not overly so, it's all the more obvious in tonight's show that the lad knows how to pen an urban tale with just enough brutal honesty and wit to amuse, but not cross the line from entertainment to cabaret.

Trailblazing through a 12 song set to a smallish crowd who had enough nuance to appear Manny hits the comfort zone around the third or fourth track. On the scale between victory and defeat, the too cool for skool brigade will be back for more. Game, set and match."

Luxembourg University DVD Part 2

The launch party was good fun - free food, free bubbly - what more can you ask for! ;-)

Here's an article about the DVD on the University website -

And if you really want, you can order a free copy of the DVD by mailing and asking the good people at Luxembourg university -

Lots of photos were taken at the bash but as yet I haven't seen any online. There are promises to upload the movies from the DVD to YouTube and the Uni website but so far that hasn't been done. As always, I'll keep you posted,
