06/13/04 - DEAR FRIENDS, UNFORTUNATELY MANNEQUIN HAS DECIDED TO CANCEL
ALL OF OUR NORTHERN DATES ON THE TOUR THIS
SUMMER WITH SAIL. WE WILL STILL BE DOING ALL OUR SOUTHERN DATES. ALL
OF WHICH WILL BEGIN ON JUNE 28TH. WEVE DECIDED TO DO THIS BECAUSE OF
OUR LACK OF CONFIDENCE AND COMMUNICATION WITH MOST THE PEOPLE INVOLVED
DOING OUR SHOWS UP NORTH. MANY EMAILS HAVE BEEN SENT TO PROMOTERS WHO
SAID THEY WERE 100 PERCENT SURE THEY COULD DO THE SHOW, AND HAVE JUST
FAILED TO CONTACT ME ABOUT ANYTHING SINCE.. INSTEAD WASTING OUR TIME
OR MONEY,WE WILL JUST RESCHEDULE MORE DATES OR ANOTHER TOUR AT ANOTHER
TIME.OUR APOLOGIES TO THE FEW WHO HAVE WORKED HARD TO PUT SOMETHING
TOGETHER.WE JUST CANT AFFORD TO DO THIS. OUR CD EP ON REPTILIAN
RECORDS WILL BE OUT IN TIME FOR OUR SHORT TRIP DOWN SOUTH.OUR GOOD
FRIEND JIMMY UP IN NEW YORK WILL BE DOING A 10 INCH VERSION OF OUR EP
IN DUE TIME. SAIL WILL STILL BE WITH US FOR ALL OUR SOUTHERN DATES.
ANYONE INTERESTED IN BOOKING A NORTH CAROLINA SHOW EITHER ON THE 28TH/29TH
OF JUNE. GET IN TOUCH.
LOVE MIKE PROPHET AND MANNEQUIN.
04/15/04 - hello friends, mannequin is currently working on new material
for our upcoming full length coming out on robotic empire. we
are also booking our summer tour. this tour
will be a three week tour along the entire east coast. we will have
sterling va's sail with us as well. we are still looking for
a few dates, so any and all help is much appreciated. 7 inch plans for
this upcoming tour have changed slightly. it will be worked out here
soon. we hope to have atleast two mannequin 7 inches this summer. in
the meantime.. we do have a few shows coming up before tour.
02/09/04 - dear friends, it has most certainly been a long while since
this thing was updated. the best excuse i have is that mannequin has
not been up to too much until now. we have just recently jammed two
shows of which were great and alot of fun. one with new orleans almighty
"the faeries" and baltimores noisy "new flesh". the other in DC at a
nice cafe with sterlings "sail". thanks for all you freaks who had fun
and enjoyed themselves. we are now planning on keeping it loki while
writing for our full length on roboticempire. we are stoked as fuck
to be writing and jamming again. theres been a slight instrument switch.
i now play guitar, while chris plays bass. oh, yeah. that tour was cool.
we camped a bunch. we ruled every single night. we are also planning
on recording at the end of feb for two splits. one with sterling va's
newest noise punk sensation "sail". the other with seattles "akimbo".
the sail split will be coming out on my very own record label called
"yrscreamingyouth". the akimbo split on comosnaut records out of new
york. we are very excited about jamming and recording these new tunes.
so please keep checking in as i do believe mannequin is in full swing
again. two short two week tours are in the works for the summer. playing
with sail, the faeries, pcp roadblock and tons of other actual good
bands. for future reference. dont attend a mannequin show unless you
are there to lose yr mind and having a fucking good time. ps. BE YOURSELF
06/23/03 - hello friends. its been some time since ive updated this
thing last which has meant that ived been extremely busy. now that the
last pg99 show has come and gone. i have time to work to update this
thing. mannequin is about to leave in a few weeks for our 6 week north
american tour of the US. the entire tour is
with our dear friends from savannah circle takes the square. the first
fews days we will be joined with our friends in triac (new VA grind
band). another part of the east coast will have crestfallen playing.
so we are very excited to be surrounded by our friends and their bands.
most the tour is booked. however we do have some gaps we need help with.
so anyone who would like to do a show for us this summer please please
get in touch soon. i know we have a bunch of california dates open.
email mike and drew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
mannequin still will only have our one split 7 inch on this tour but
hope to have some sorta demo version of our 7 inch coming out on reptilian
as well. we are hard at work writing for our upcoming full length. this
is about anyone needs to know for now. more updates will come sometime
in the summer. lovemikeprophet

02/18/03 - dear friends, as everyone may know by now, mannequin has
been a band for about a year. finally we've gotten around to spending
a whole lot of time on a few things we've been intending on doing, this
is our website. it's a basic form of communication used to keep punk
kids updated all over about tours, records, shows, and just any news
in general. we don't plan on using it for anything much more than that.
mannequin has just finished recording 6 songs in the studio back in
jan., 2 songs of which will be coming out on our split 7 inch with transistor/transistor
(roboticempire/redscroll). 4 songs of which will be coming out on our
own 7 inch on reptilian records (out by summer tour). we are currently
booking a 3 week spring tour of the east coast, if anyone would be interested
in having us jam your area, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
this tour starts march 14th and ends april 7th. rva's almighty suppression
will be joining us from the 17th-23rd. mannequin is also already planning
on a 6 week US tour with our dear friends from savannah circle takes
the square. this tour is tenatively starting mid june. we also plan
on recording shortly after our spring tour for a cd ep which will come
out on roboticempire. this is about all the info there is for now. so
please get in touch even to just say hello. we are a new band who plans
on rocking for a long time, so you better get used to us. hahahaha.
