Feeling a bit camera shy


Named after the venue in which they practiced, Manville was founded in September 2003 in Syracuse, NY with a mission to rock your asses into sweet submission. Being born to rock, Stan learned bass sufficiently enough to play Manville's debut gig two weeks later. Despite a seemingly rotating lineup, the band has always consisted of this foursome, with first James leaving to slay vampires in London for a few months or something, and Joe being exiled from Syracuse for rocking too hard a few months after that. They debuted their material at the WERW Rocked n' Loaded bash on May 9th, 2004 in the venue that spawned their name. Influences are based on a healthy Ramones meets Sonic Youth flare incorporating other bands such as Misfits, Queers, Social Distortion, Pixies, Ween, and the Presidents of the United States of America. Manville is also known for the spontaneous Air Guitar solos as well as sarcastic and subliminally intelligent lyrics. Mixing in a respect for 80's grandiose attitude with 90's pavement-esque sarcasm, Manville makes you groove and smile at the same time.
