Man | Diskographie | DiscogsMan is a rock band from Wales. Formed in November 1968 as a reincarnation of the Welsh vocal group the Bystanders, Man is renowned for the extended jams in its live performances. Man evolved out of the Bystanders, a successful close harmony pop group from Merthyr Tydfil who played in numerous club residencies in Wales, often playing at several clubs a night. The Bystanders issued eight singles, including “98.6” (No. 45 in UK Singles Chart in February 1967) which was played in the 2009 film The Boat That Rocked (although Keith’s version was the bigger hit, reaching No. 24 in the UK) and “When Jesamine Goes”, written by their manager Ronnie Scott and Marty Wilde under the pseudonyms of Frere Manston and Jack Gellar, which was later covered by the Casuals as “Jesamine” and got to No. 2 on the UK chart. They also recorded sessions of cover versions for the BBC as rules restricting needle time required “live” performances between the records during the 1960s;[4] becoming regulars on the Jimmy Young Show, the David Symonds Show and others.
