The Wed-Dig Battle


In the lineage of “Down The Alley” parties, the ex-owner of “Down the Alley” threw a new party at a new secret location in the Waterloo area that was even more remarkable. Including the re-forming of a few local bands, a rave, food, drink, you name it….it was at Wed-Dig. DJ AdRock and I were lucky enough to be invited and so we had to battle out great tracks pertaining to this event.


The Comic Book Battle

DJ Plan B, Gary Cain and DJ Adrock battle out great tracks based on various different comic books. If you missed the Gary Cain band interview make sure to check that out as well. And if you are into Comic books and Music….there is nothing better than “The Electrifying Adventures of DJ Jeff E Jeff”

Top Shelf Video: The Gay Nineties Letterman

This is the third time we recorded the segment for this same video. We wanted to start with this video since it was a tweet by the Gay Nineties that gave us the initial idea in the first place!

Check out our review/commentary of the Gay Nineties video “Letterman” above then be sure to check this great video out below!

The Unicorns Reunite!

UnicornsThis is a reunion that we totally missed out on! The shows were all in August and in the US with only one in Canada but up in Montreal.

We are seriously hoping that the Unicorns will come down to Waterloo and perform here on the Mano A Mano show and continue the great indie rock that we know and love from this band! Check out the podcast above for two tracks recently released that are b-sides from the time of their amazing album “Who will cut our hair when we’re gone?”

NEW MUSIC by Death From Above 1979 & The New Pornographers

This weeks feature is not just one band as it usually is….Last Gang Records sent us their new releases moments before the show and both of these bands are among our favourite Canadian bands so we had to release both of these as our feature at the same time!

To top that off….both of these tracks are AWESOME! Check it out in the podcast above.

Rob Zombie desecrated!

It is hard to believe but there are some among us that dislike music and dislike our right to arts and culture! This painting of Rob Zombie was brutally desecrated by one such individual. It is quite sad because the artist “RGM” as signed on the back clearly spent a lot of time painting it to get such a great likeness to Rob Zombie. In this podcast we pour one out (one fine Rock Cut) and then drink to artist while rocking out some Rob Zombie greats.20140527_200347
