The Artist.

A highly original and unique solo independent concept artist delivering an addictive blend of audio and visual stimulations entangled and enfused into cryptic manifestations of a ultra creative yet troubled mind. Taking many forms Manaking's art works utilise words, pictures, film, performance and music. Nothing is safe, nothing is out of bounds.

The Story.

Broken by a lifetime of deceit and betrayal this shattered human looking for a way to stop the pain gave up on a life he no longer wanted. From deep within a formless spirit heard his cries and forged a deal with him to manage his pain by capturing and using its 'Mana' as a fuel for its creations in exchange for a physical form which would allow him to operate in this world. The human gladly accepted and agreed to become nothing more than that of a host to house the arrival of this ancient and mischievous spirit that takes the name Manaking - (pronounced 'Mannequin')

The Show.

More than just your average live music gig Manaking has a band made up of Mannequins he calls Band 4Q and his shows deliver high intensity performance combining raw yet engaging vocals with captivating on stage presence, movement and visual stimulus. It is strongly advised that all audience members are 18+ and not easily offended most performances as standard contain explicit language and 'The Fokt Show' performances may also contain imagery of a violent and or sexual nature.

The Music.

Musically Manaking's works are hard to catogorise and because his style mixes various elements such as rock, rap he refers to his 'genre' in this area as simply crossover. That being said if you are one of these people that needs to forever try to fit everything you encounter into neat little labeled catorgories try to think of Manaking's music as: --- Beastie Boys ‘meets’ Marilyn Manson --- Massive Attack ‘meets’ Nine Inch Nails --- Rage Against the Machine ‘meets’ Faith No More --- Eminem ‘meets’ Snot --- Tupac ‘meets’ Operation Ivy --- Hed PE 'meets' Nostradamus!!
