New York London Paris Munich?

Sod that.

Beckenham Lewisham Catford Penge.

That’s more like it.

The Manor are the sound of their south London manor, local heroes and viral superstars rapping about universal pastimes. A hip hop-goes-UKG-goes-R&Britpop trio, loud and proud and defiant. MCs Danny Graft, Scotty Stacks and Jonny Dutch are schooldays friends turned pie-eyed pipers with a common touch, a natural flow and an infectious ability to draw everyone to the party.

By “everyone” they mean everyone from Mike Skinner to Andi Peters, Tyson Fury to Dean Gaffney, the Beckenham massive to the sold out crowds in (whisper it) norf London venues like Koko and The Forum.

And by “party” then mean… well, what?

Scotty: “Our gigs are a party where everyone is involved. It’s always inclusive, never divisive. Doesn’t matter what your religion, your tastes, your rump.”

Danny: “Everyone is sweet. Not only that, everyone is taking the piss out of themselves. Everyone is having a laugh, at themselves. That’s the main thing. That’s why there is no needle at our gigs, only love.”
