"Vengeance Is Mine" official videoclip

(Italiano: sotto)

Pink Ladies and T-Birds,

here's the brand-new-but-very-old videoclip for "Vengeance Is Mine"!



We shot it in 2006, at the Skaletta Rock Club in La Spezia, on the day The Manges Go Down was released.
Then we didn't like the final edit so it's never been used for the album promotion.
Until now! Our friend Marco Benisi took the time to give it new life and now we are proud to announce it as a Sgt. Mouse approved official videoclip!
Looks like it's old, but it's brand new... or the opposite.

This also makes a little sense cause The Manges Go Down 2006 album will be released on cassette by the happy retro folks at StopRecPlay! Limited edition of 100. It's time to run to the garage and look for your dad's walkman! Or if you're a mum or dad already, well, just go get that shit.

"Vengeance Is Mine" is also one of the 54 remastered songs we released on the "EVERYTHING..." 3xLP box set available here.
Most of the 333 copies are already gone. There are about 50 left! Thank you very much.

Update on our new album: recordings are done and it's currently being mixed at TUP Studio by producer Hervè Peroncini and goodfellas Bruno Barcella and Pierluigi Ballarin. We are working on a plan for a spring release and we'll let you know more as soon as we will confirm anything.

So happy 2014, shaman says... all is well!

The Manges

Pink ladies e T-Birds!

ecco il nuovo-di-pacca-ma-molto-vecchio video di "Vengeance Is Mine"!

Lo abbiamo girato nel 2006 alla Skaletta di La Spezia, il giorno dell'uscita di The Manges Go Down.
Non ci era piaciuto come era venuto per cui non l'abbiamo mai utilizzato.
Fino ad oggi! Il nostro amico Marco Benisi si è preso la briga di dargli nuova vita e adesso siamo fieri di annunciarlo come videoclip ufficiale! Sgt. Mouse approved!
Sembra vecchio ma è nuovo... o anche il contrario.

Far uscire questo video si collega al fatto che The Manges Go Down, album del 2006, uscirà in musicassetta grazie a quei retro hipster della StopRecPlay! Edizione limitata di 100 pezzi. E' l'ora di correre in soffitta a cercare il walkam di tuo papà! O, se sei già papà o mamma... insomma tirate fuori quel cazzo di walkman.

"Vengeance Is Mine" è anche una delle 54 canzoni rimasterizzate contenute nel cofanetto da 3 Lp "EVERYTHING..." che è sempre disponibile qui.
La maggior parte delle 333 copie sono già andate. Ce ne sono rimaste circa 50! Grazie a tutti.

Aggiornamenti sul nostro nuovo album: le registrazioni sono terminate e lo stanno mixando in questo momento al TUP Studio, il produttore Hervè Peroncini e i bravi ragazzi Bruno Barcella e Pierluigi Ballarin. Stiamo lavorando per farlo uscire in primavera, vi faremo sapere appena avremo notizie confermate.

Felice 2014... lo sciamano dice... all is well!
