They then go on to play three nights at The Blackthorne Resort in East Durham, NY. Then back to the UK for a series of pub gigs.

Their American trip will preclude them joining any more Revolver dates in the UK (like tonight's). In my view, there are actually too many of them to supplement The Imposters. It would work better if they joined one of Elvis's solo dates and could spread out without the Songbook taking up room on the stage.

There are some songs in the EC songbook that work well with an Irish/Celtic flavour to them, like Tramp The Dirt Down and it would be good to hear that combination one day.

funny you should say so MOOT! was just thinking today how E might indeed make an LP or tour with this band next. BIBLE CODE, not RIVERWAY, that is! the more i think, yeah...the son's of Ross together might be just what E needs to cure his writer's block (if that's indeed the case these days!)

Ronan McManus on Irish identity, BibleCode Sundays and Elvis Costello


By Geraldine Gilmartin on October 11, 2013


BIBLECODE SUNDAYS frontman Ronan McManus talks to Geraldine Gilmartin about family, his musical make-up and brother Elvis Costello.

“Music was our family business really. Dad was a musician, so was his father. It sounds like a cliché but every night in our house was like a gig, all of us singing songs with my brother Kieran on piano.”

Ronan McManus grew up in a music-filled household in Twickenham, West London. His father played trumpet with the hugely successful Joe Loss Orchestra, and composed and sang on the classic R White’s Lemonade TV commercial.

Ronan’s four brothers all play music, including the eldest, Declan (from his father’s first marriage) – better known as Elvis Costello. Their father is the glue that binds the brothers musically and emotionally.

“Dad taught us everything we knew,” says Ronan. “From an early age, he taught me how to breathe, project and perform. I got the lead in school plays because I could sing and sang at weddings as a choirboy.

“My first paid gig was for the Richmond and District Irish society at St. Margarets’ church, which dad was involved in. I got pulled out of the back garden where I was playing with grass stains on my knees. I was only supposed to sing one song – Slievenamon – but I carried on. I got £10 and an Ireland football shirt!”

Ronan played rugby aged six to 16 with the London Irish rugby team and became their musical mascot. Parents would put him on the table to sing after games.

His father, whose record collection spanned Miles Davis to Irish folk, specialised more in big bands/jazz, so where did he acquire the Irish song repertoire?

“I probably got into it when my brother Liam’s godfather started sending us Wolfe Tones’ tapes,” Ronan smiles. “I’d nick Dad’s Walkman and listen to them non-stop. I probably learned a lot by osmosis from the London Irish rugby culture too.”

Getting Saturday jobs at Sainsbury’s proved critical. Realising they could get more money performing in their friend’s father’s pub, the Railway Tavern (Hampton Wick), prompted Ronan and brothers Kieran, Ruairi and Liam to launch Sláinte, helped by the loan of a PA from dad.

It was a transformational time for Irish music and consequentially for Irish identity, not just in Britain but globally, with the ascendancy of Irish supergroups such as U2 and the Cranberries, capped by the astonishing Riverdance epidemic.

For Sláinte, it felt normal to mix pop/rock and indie covers alongside traditional Irish material as many bands at the time had Irish connections.

“People of Irish descent were top dog really. And the two things didn’t seem that separate to us. I always had designs of making the charts. I wrote pop and rock songs and we covered material from Crowded House and the Saw Doctors to the Wolfe Tones and Oasis.”

Sláinte eventually mutated alongside other band formations into BibleCode Sundays with Ronan now the only remaining MacManus brother. The BibleCodes enjoy a devoted fan base among the Irish community, particularly in London, performing in London, Ireland and the US – with big brother Declan in 2011 – and a prestigious slot at the Finsbury Park London Feis.

Ronan gigs at least four nights a week, continuing a work ethic that his father absorbed from a Birkenhead dockside upbringing and County Tyrone parentage. “We always learned that from dad – keep working, that’s how you get better. You’re only as good as your last gig.”

Songwriting talent as well as musical prowess is in the genes – and its Ronan’s self-penned material which really showcases his warm vocals, emotional delivery and sensitive lyrics.

His solo debut album Strawberry Hill, recorded for free at a friend’s studio in 2010, is a quality collection of beautifully crafted acoustic guitar based songs which could well take shelf space alongside his elder sibling’s work. The rich timbre of his vocal is strikingly similar to that of his elder brother (as is the physical resemblance).

“I had a load of songs knocking around which didn’t suit the Bible Codes. I’ve always written songs and listened to artists like Neil Finn (Crowded House), David Gray, Ron Sexsmith, and Damien Dempsey.

“I love that ‘one man one guitar’ sound and it’s very hard to create that kind of emotion with a band. I’ve never really felt it was a conflict with the bands. I always had that going on in the background and am bringing it into the public domain now.”

Not surprisingly for such a busy, hard-working musician and dad, the album lay un-promoted but he is now rereleasing tracks online and recording new material.

Was he always aware that he had a famous elder sibling?

“Pretty much. I was one year old when Declan released his first album in 1977 — I remember getting signed photos for everyone in my class at school!” recalls Ronan.

The age gap was always apparent — Declan’s son was of similar age to Ronan, and while Ronan was a teen writing his first songs and struggling with love, Declan was already divorced. It’s only in recent years that “he feels more like a brother” while the death of their father also brought the family closer.

“We started having similar life experiences – he’s had twin boys and I’m a father of three so we’re finally doing some things at the same time. We were close but we’ve become a lot closer since losing dad a year and a half ago. It’s made us realise how important we are to each other.”

Ronan also credits his elder brother as an inspiration which kept the brothers going when friends abandoned the music business as an unattainable dream. “What Declan really did for us when we were growing up was prove it’s possible to make music your career – that really gave us inspiration. We’ve still got the belief.”

Elvis Costello took his stage name from their great-grandmother, Elizabeth Costello, who was born around 1863 — possibly in Galway or Kerry — and ended up in Birkenhead where she married their great-grandfather from Tyrone. Ronan is continuing family research begun by his father to trace her roots in Ireland — any information Irish Post readers may have is welcome!

The links may be somewhat distant but the family’s Irish identity remains strong and fresh. “We were brought up to feel so Irish when we are actually a couple of generations out of Ireland and my mum was English.

“I wouldn’t want to change anything though. I’m proud of being from London — it’s such a great, multicultural city and we’re lucky to have its opportunities.”

Ronan recently changed his name by deed poll back to the original family name of McManus. Their father added the ‘a’ when he was in the Joe Loss Orchestra because it looked better on posters. (Although the MacManus diaspora have no direct family in Ireland, BibleCodes’ member Enda Mulloy’s family home in Mayo is a second home for the band when they tour Ireland.)

Is he a musician or an Irish musician?

“Irish identity has always been a huge part of my life. As I get older, and become a father, where you came from becomes more important. I like to think I’m just a musician but my Irish identity is a huge part of it – the work ethic, the Irish people who came to London, the ‘we’re all in this together’ feeling that was passed on to us with the music.”

This incestuous community of London Irish bands continues to spawn fresh talent — London Irish outfit The Lagan were inspired to form after seeing BibleCodes perform in Boston. “They call us their spiritual big brothers!” Ronan laughs.

Big brothers clearly are inspirational — both blood brothers and the wider London Irish musical brotherhood.

Strawberry Hill is available at iTunes and other online stores. For more info, see www.ronanmcmanus.com and www.biblecodesundays.co

By coincidence Larkin Poe have a track on their new album called Elephant (but is also about the Elephant in the room).

I like the interesting mix of The Beatles and The Jam. Not that The Jam ever sounded like The Beatles. :lol:

Sunday school
ARTS AND FEATURES — 15 January 2015

Ronan McManus is midway through his first full year as a mentor to students in Stanmore College, as he helps them develop their song writing skills for three hours once a week after being asked to help out by a friend.

“They’re so talented and confident. I was very surprised at how open they are to just start singing a song in front of each other,” he says.

“When I was that age I don’t think I could have done that, but I suppose maybe our generation were a shyer.

“I think it’s this X Factor generation, they just burst into song. They see people do it on the telly so it seems really natural to them.

“It’s so infectious, and I find it really refreshing. You find yourself inspired by them when doing your own personal thing.”

The extra-curricular group, consisting of about ten regulars, with others dropping in and out around their lessons have use of the recording studio and they are working on having an album by the end of the year.

“We have three songs down already and more to come. Because they’re so open as well, they take criticism really well.

“They’re so harsh with each other! Sometimes I have to tell them to tone it down as they’re brutally honest! But everyone just gives it a go and takes the flak. They all choose to be there so they’re really enthusiastic.

“They don’t take anything to heart. I’d expect them to be sensitive but they’re so resilient.”

Ronan has also opened up to new kinds of musical styles from the diversity of tastes from the cultural mix of students.

“It’s funny, being a 38-year-old white guy I didn’t expect to have much in common with them. I had previous ideas of what they would consider to be cool, but they’re open to everything.

“They’ll be talking about Dr Dre or Beyonce and then all of a sudden they’ll go ‘I love Elton John’s music’ and I’m like ‘what? How do you know his stuff?”

“It’s quite a culturally diverse college and they’re so interested in their backgrounds. Where someone comes from is one of the first things they talk about when people join.

“They are from the Caribbean or Africa or Romania or Asia. There’s one kid from Ghana and he raps and switches between English and his own language Twi.

“Sometimes the session will be on the computers with them flicking through YouTube and afterwards they’ll play a song that they found and liked. The musical discovery is all part of the process and I try not to stifle that. You want them to discuss their likes and dislikes.

“It helps me learn more about them and helps them express themselves to each other.

“My musical background is working in acoustic music like folk or rock stuff. But these kids come in and say ‘I’m a rapper’ or ‘I’m a drummer’ and I see them freestyle.

“For me, I’ve always had to write things down and hone songs. It’s as much of a learning curve for me as them. The project has really just hit the ground running.

“Every week is different. Sometimes I’ll have a one-on-one session with a student who has the beginnings of a song and I’ll help them develop the lyrical side of things and help them draw it out.”

The class is optional so all are really passionate about their music, but it means that their class work takes priority.

“The other day one guy participated in the whole class and came to me afterwards asking me to write a note for his teacher explaining why he wasn’t in class. I was like ‘you can’t do that!’

Ronan has since got offers from two ex-Stanmore College staff members who have asked him to take on the role at their new schools and he has ideas for future workshops after seeing how his background made music the natural progression for his career.

Ronan’s late father Ross was a singer and his older brother Declan, otherwise known as Elvis Costello, released his first album when Ronan was just one.

“It’s a bit unexpected to be honest. If the other jobs come through then I will be doing this kind of thing on a regular basis, like a day job which is a bit of a dirty word when you’re a musician! You play music so you don’t have to have a day job!But if I can do it and stay creative then great.

“My dad being a singer as a job made it very normal for me. While other people would see it as a hobby and not a career, it was more natural for me to get into especially with Declan singing in his career for as long as I can remember.

“It made it accessible. It wasn’t a distant dream it was something you could do. They certainly influenced me.

“A lot of people think oh I can’t do that and close the door before they’ve even have a chance. I’ve been writing songs since I was 10 or 11 years old and people ask me for advice. It’s not like I’ve had a massive hit but I just get the structure of songs.

“I have designs on more workshops to get people into it in a way that it’s doable and achievable. People are very negative about their own abilities sometimes and I believe that everyone has a song in them.

“Everyone is passionate about something and that’s all you really need to write a song.I’d really like to encourage creativity and the fact it is achievableas it’s a good outlet for any kind of angst.

“Over the years anything major in my life, good or bad, I wrote a song about it and I think it’s important to have that outlet. I don’t think enough importance is put on the arts.

“A lot of rappers and musicians have troubled backgrounds or have had hard times but the music helps them to get it out of their system and talk about it. It’s almost like therapy really.”

Outside of his mentor role Ronan is busy touring, and has found that bookings this year have coincided with a personal journey.

“I’m calling this the Following in the Footsteps tour. I’m doing my Elephants in the Room album which is out now with a couple of the BibleCodes and Luke Dolan.

“But at the same time I am researching my family tree. My dad started doing it before he died and I want to finish it. He found the birthplace of his grandfather, but there’s other unanswered questions.

“We’re trying to find the birthplace of my great-grandmother Elizabeth Costello, who Declan took his name from.

“She was born at just at the cusp of when the records were coming out but we don’t even know what county she’s from.

“The MacManus side are from Tyrone so I have a Tyrone jersey so I’m hoping it might be Kerry because they’re really good, but I’ll probably end up with Louth!

“I really hope Costellos in Ireland will help us, because really we are trying to trace the birth of Declan’s stage name. So we have a little tour coincidentally around Ireland in April where I’ll be trying to do that.

“Then I’m going to Belgium and stopping off in northern France on the way. My granddad was shot there in the First World War when he was in the Royal Irish Regiment so I’m trying to track where that happened.

“Declan is on tour in June and I’m hoping to get to work with him. He has a date in Carlisle where my Mum is originally from so all of her family are coming down for that so it’s looking like I’ll at least get that. I loved being with him at Kew Gardens last year and with the BibleCodes in America before.”

With all this touring it would seem that it’s difficult for Ronan to also do the school run for his family.

“I have a very understanding wife! I’m such a cliché! She’s a nurse in Northwick Park and I’m a musician who met her in the Shawl!

“I do the school run for my two boys and look after my two-year-old daughter and niece during the day and then gig at night.

“She then has to take time off work when I’m touring but at least we’re always with the kids. It’s funny as my mum was a childminder growing up and my dad a musician so I’ve got their two jobs!

“It can be challenging if I’ve got a late kid and an early start but you can’t moan about it – just get on with it!

And are the children showing any signs of following the footsteps of the McManus’s?

“I’m trying to tell them to get a real job! I see them singing and showing signs of basically showing off and go ‘oh oh!’

“My eldest is ten and he’s learnt off and has himself filmed reeling off Daniel Radcliffe’s alphabet aerobics which is a real tongue twister.

“Now he’s learning the elements of the periodical song. I’m just like ‘this is worrying, I was hoping at some point there would be a MacManus who gets a real job!’ But it’s all part of the family business really.

“My granddad used to play on the boats to and from New York, about ten, fifteen years after the Titanic. Then my dad moved down to London and played jazz and things like that and then Dec.

“I see signs of it in my kids and there’s a certain pride that obviously goes with it. But then there’s that ‘uh oh’ will we ever escape this? Probably not!”

Elvis' brother Ronan sends this message today to subscribers to the Brand New Zeros mailing list:

"London Launch Party Postponed

We regret to announce that due to a pretty horrific barbering accident involving a very sharp pair of scissors and the tendons on Luke's left hand he will be out of action for a while. We have no option but to postpone our album launch party, planned for the 30th July, until he recovers. We are hoping he will be able to gain full use of his hand again and we will be able to continue with all our plans for the Autumn/Winter time.

If you are religious please say a few prayers, if you are not then please find God pretty sharpish and then say a few prayers for a full and speedy recovery.

Thanks everyone, apologies for this
stay tuned for updates

You couldn't make this Irish Post story up if you tried...

Marmite app blocks Irishman’s ‘rude’ surname on personalised jar

ronan-marmite-n.jpg
Ronan MacManus was unable to order a personalised Marmite jar because of his ‘rude’ name

THE YEAST extract spread Marmite is famous for its ‘love it or hate it’ slogan, and now the polarising paste has left a bad taste in the mouth of one second-generation Irishman.

With personalised jars launched last month as a perfect Christmas gift for Marmite lovers, Ronan MacManus thought he’d order some for his Marmite-loving family.

However when the singer with London Irish band BibleCode Sundays logged on to Marmite’s Facebook page, which hosted an app for personalising your jar, he was stunned to see part of his name asterisked out and a message informing him to try again after “profanity was detected in [his] name”.

marmite-message-n.jpg
The message that appeared after MacManus tried putting in his surname

Despite proving a pain in the backside for the singer — who is the son of late musician Ross MacManus and brother of Elvis Costelloe — he admitted he saw the funny side and revealed he was oblivious to the rude connotations of his surname until adulthood, when he formed a group with his brothers.

“I was in a band with four of my brothers and we were looking for a new name,” he explained. “So we knocked the ‘Mac’ off our surname and called the band Manus. We were playing in a pub in Richmond where they had a chalkboard showing who was playing that week, and someone had comically rubbed off the ‘M’. Before that I’d honestly never noticed.”

The Irish Post emailed Marmite for clarification on whether the block on ‘MacManus’ could be lifted and is waiting for a response. However with the app no longer available on the spread’s Facebook site, fans can only get their hands on a personalised jar at the Marmite pop-up stand at Westfield in London’s White City.

Despite blocking MacManus because of its last four letters, the app permitted other ‘rude’ words when they were included within names. So the Sextons, Titmarshes and Cockburns of this world could get their hands on a personalised jar, likewise fans of Arsenal football club.

However others who would miss out along with MacManus include former MP Ed Balls, actress Samantha Janus, cricketer Roger Clitheroe — and of course anyone from Scunthorpe, who may have been hoping to honour their town in Marmite form.

Ronan MacManus has released a live album featuring a solo performance in Lommel (Belgium) in November 2015.

More details are here: http://ronanmacmanus.bandcamp.com/album/live-in-lommel

He writes:

"Recorded on 13th November 2015 in Lommel, Belgium, a date better known for the tragic Paris attacks. This is a selection of the songs from that gig, recorded by the fantastic sound man, although he was a little heavy with the reverb and effects. It contains tracks from various albums and projects; my debut solo album Strawberry Hill; Elephant In the Room, the album written with my brother Ruairi; Brand New Zeros, the album written with Luke Dolan from our band by the same name; and also some previously unreleased tracks that are due to appear on both forthcoming albums by BNZ and another solo record. There are also a couple of covers thrown in for good measure. The performances are not perfect as the effects of the fantastic Belgian beer contributed to what was an amazing atmosphere in the room that night, although those things don't always translate in their entirety to the audio recordings. "
