Man are a rock band from South Wales whose style is a mixture of West Coast psychedelia, progressive rock, blues and pub rock. Formed in 1968 as a reincarnation of Welsh rock harmony group ‘’The Bystanders’’, Man are renowned for the extended jams in their live performances.

Maximum Darkness is an album by the Welsh psychedelic/progressive rock band Man and was released on the United Artists Records label September 1975. It was the second complete live album released by the band, and featured John Cipollina as special guest. Rumours that Micky Jones had to over-dub Cipollina’s guitar, as it was out of tune, before the album could be released, are greatly exaggerated. Only one track, “Bananas,” had to have his playing removed/replaced, per Deke Leonard: “Everything … which sounds like Cippolina is Cippolina.”M. Jones tribute The album spent 2 weeks in the UK album chart, peaking at No 25. It was the band’s last release on United Artists, before moving to MCA Records.
