musictanklogoA little late this one – chances are he’s unavailable forthwith – still, MusicTank, the Univerity of Westminster’s professional speaking event organiser, shows Davey as a member and have a small bio up on him at their site. Who knows if he ever made any, he’s never seemed like the world’s best interviewee. God help the students. Hit more for the bio.

Davey MacManus – Band member, The Crimea

image_miniDublin born, Davey attended University of Wales, Aberystwyth to study Agriculture. After being told by his lecturer that no one ever got a job out of his course, he turned to music for a living and met fellow Crimea member Owen Hopkin while part of the band The Crocketts.

In 2002 Davey and Owen formed The Crimea. Davey is the main lyricist, composer and producer of the band’s songs, and also partakes in solo gigs under the name of Kernel Krok. He plays rhythm guitar in The Crimea, and alsos play the Accordion and Harmonica. In March ’07, The Crimea announced their unprecedented plans to release their hugely anticipated second album, ‘Secrets Of The Witching Hour’, as a free download (on May 12th 2007).

Deliberately dodging the music industry merry-go-round and its rapidly dimming lights, the band seized control of their own destiny by taking the bold decision to make their new album available online to everyone, everywhere, completely free-of-charge.
