The list of fabulous players who have emerged from the Manchester borough in North West England are extensive, and Gary Manny “Mani” Mounfield is among the most musically compelling.

With the Stone Roses and Primal Scream, Mani’s magnificent “Madchester” meld of dub, rock, and psychedelia in his bass artistry exudes massive, legato grooves and countermelodies coaxed from his various signature Rickenbackers, along with the Jack Casady Epiphone he has used in recent years.
