Album 365: Day 147 - Michael Manring - Thonk

Michael Manring

Favorite tracks: Big Fungus, Disturbed, Bad Hair Day
Sleeper tracks: On A Day of Many Angels

This was another record I read about from reading Modern Drummer.  Primus' drummer, Tim Alexander played on this album.  I had never heard of Michael Manring but his bass playing was pretty spectacular.  I remember showing the record to my bandmates and giggling about the bass chops.  There are some good songs but there are also 1 or 2 bunk jazz/fusion ballads (See Dave Weckl entry).

The album isn't anything groundbreaking but I did have a pretty important part of forming my music taste and attitude.
