A Drink With…Manny Tamayo

Bartender, I’ll have a…One of those $2 Bartender’s Special Beers. Shit, gimmie 2.

I’m SURE you remember me from such Factory shows as…The Willing Participant, Lab Rats, Dick Danger – DJ Crime Solver
(Editor’s Note: And Menage A Trailer, GIs in Europe, Top Shelf Gash, Toast of the Town (Original), Easy Six, 1985, The Lonesome Hoboes, Here Comes a Regular, Among the Dead…and more. He also wrote Operation Infiltration, Dead Wrong, and Incident on Run 1217. The guy is busy.)

I got involved with the Factory because…Nick Digilio told me I would get along with those guys. “They drink like YOU.”

My current/next gig is…Directing the “Soon to be Factory Classic”, THE LAST BIG MISTAKE.

I give a shit about our move to Rogers Park because…It’s about time we moved into our own space. It’s also about time we did something for the community. It’s win-win (NO RISK) = we force ourselves to grow up and get what we want in the process.

If I had to force you to listen to 2 albums, they would be…LAYLA AND OTHER ASSORTED LOVE SONGS – Derek and the Dominos (1970) When Clapton was still GOD and before Duane Allman danced the Obituary Mambo with a Flatbed Truck. This shit is the real deal. If you don’t own it, you must not enjoy Rock and Roll. No exceptions.

My favourite Factory memory is…The time Chas Vrba shot a man…..just for snorin’ too loud.

I’m switching drinks, I’ll have a…A shot of Old Granddad. Fill it over the line…..this ain’t my first Rodeo!
