Mannerisms

Mannerisms are not a retro jazz fusion band. They also have little in common with modern fusion either. Instead, they prefer to ditch most of that self-indulgent noodling in favour of tighter and more rhythmically-focussed compositions, as if an imaginary cosmic disco god had already performed some re-edit magic before the band even learned the songs. Originally splintering off a previous group known as The Cleef, featuring drummer Dean Wales and guitarist Mike Morency-Frame, the instrumental group see themselves as the missing link between Tortoise and Weather Report. If you need a name for it, you could describe their one-band genre as cold-fusion, post-jazz-rock, minimalist-prog, sci-fi funk, or perhaps astro-beat.
