Alex McManus and Friends

Where From:
Omaha, Nebraska

Year Formed:

When he wasn’t channeling psychedelic-independent-folk-rock sounds as The Bruces, Alex McManus played with Bright Eyes, Lambchop, Simon Joyner, and more. He also played quite a bit with the late great Vic Chesnutt. Both the remarkable The Shining Path and The War of The Bruces were released on Misra near the beginning of the aughts.
