Old school punk rock from La Spezia, Italy, since 1993.

[b]Notes:[/b]

- the Manges yell “1-2-3-4” to start every song and do not pause during their live shows in pure Ramones tradition.

- they all dress with striped t-shirts, sneakers, jeans and leather jackets.

- if they’re not touring, they can easily be found drinking at the Scaletta Rock Club bar in La Spezia.

[b]Career highlights (by Sgt. Mickey Mouse):[/b]

- The Manges toured Italy and Europe, and USA/Canada several times, and Japan in September 2012.

- opening act for CJ Ramone, Marky Ramone, Riverdales, Queers, Hard-Ons, Mr. T Experience, Methadones, Zeros, and many others.

- Screeching Weasel from Chicago covered a Manges song on their 2000 “Teen Punks In Heat” Lookout! Records album.

- Screeching Weasel’s John Jughead joined the Manges line-up in 2001 for a US tour.

- voted on the web as Italian “punk band of the year” 2006, got the award at MEI in Faenza (indipendent labels meeting).

- since 2012, the Manges run the Striped mailorder (online punk rock shop) .

- met everybody in the Ramones

- get respect by fans, friends and the scene.
