With roots firmly planted in the fertile ground of the South Wales rock scene, Man were formed in 1968 and, pausing for a brief intake of breath in the late 1970’s, continue as a recording and gigging band to this day.
Man’s latest album, ‘Reanimated Memories’, was released by Esoteric Antenna in February 2015, followed almost immediately by re-mastered and extended editions of Deke Leonard’s first two albums, ‘Iceberg’ and ‘Kamikaze’. The third volume of Deke’s autobiography, ‘Maximum Darkness’ was published by Northdown in December 2013 and a Kindle-only collection of his writings for the Welsh Connection were published via Amazon in the late spring of 2015.
