The Second release features two old friends of us, andy and andy.

Andy and Andy under their joint name M.A.N. first formed in 2004, although had being talked about between it's two members both called Andy for at least two or three years before when one night round at Andy N (Music and some words)'s house during a sound testing, Andy S (Vocals and some words) started coming out with this brilliant vocals almost out of nowhere and before the pair of them knew it that night they had recorded their first few tracks.

Their brief originally was not serious - Andy N wanted to have some fun away from DIH (the legendary noise terrorist groups) and try and do something slightly more light hearted and in some cases softer.
Andy S at the time was involved in a folk group called 'Plain Jain' and co-formed August which eventually bit the dust a few years later.

M.A.N. however is different from both of any of the projects that either do otherwise, as although it has the spoken words structure of DIH, the structure of the songs themselves are much more freer and looser, perhaps close to a mixture of Boards of Canada meets Air or The Chemical Brothers with Andy's sometimes improvised vocals.

Their debut album 'Journeys' came out in 2006 and it was also around about this point that M.A.N. also started contributing to the DIH and friends at Christmas and have contributed to several of these albums since.

Their second album simply entitled 'M.A.N.' followed in 2008 on Hallo Excentrico.

‘My Special Child’ EP is their first release in almost 7 and a half years.
The long delayed third album ‘From a Boy to a..’ (caused in part done to Andy S been travelling and living abroad and Andy N having changes in health) shall follow in August and sees the guys in complete contrast to the forthcoming album slip into lengthier pieces, telling stories within stories done in a style that is their own.
