Album Notes
Out of Chicago, Illinois, hails MANIC SEWING CIRCLE who adds their own brand of eccentric ska-punk-reggae to the scene. With song writing as a main focus, MANIC SEWING CIRCLE's sound is a swift twist of off-beat rock, fast reggae rhythms, and punchy horn riffs. MANIC SEWING CIRCLE pulls in enthusiastic crowds all over the MIDWEST and USA. They are known as a horn-blasting, beat-pounding, foot-movin' eccentric ska-punk-reggae band. Their infectious comedic-doowap groove also gets people up on their feet dancing. These guys have toured the MIDWEST extensively, perfecting their craft of delivering an all-out energetic concert of their original ska/punk music. To date, MANIC SEWING CIRCLE has performed in over 4 states and Chicago countless time, and they are all still 16 years old. Their shows also feature carefully selected covers that have been played by MANIC SEWING CIRCLE such as "I Fought the Law" and instead of "Paradise City" by Gun's and Roses, they've dubbed it "Ybor City" in tribute to their fanatical encounter with a chaotic city in Flordia. With the new release of their debut album "Nobody Get's What We're Saying," MANIC SEWING CIRCLE will now send their vastly proclaimed CD to independent ska and punk radio, college radio, and rock stations around the world. Furthermore, MANIC SEWING CIRCLE has been featured on many, many, many ska bills around Chicago, playing with highly acclaimed acts as Mustard Plug, The Planet Smashers, Big D and the Kids Table, Deal's Gone Bad, The Know How and The Suburban Legends at such venues as The Metro, Bottom Lounge, and Logan Square Auditorium. As the touring keeps on "get on board" with MANIC SEWING CIRCLE at a show, online, or at home!

Age has nothing to do with quality
Manic Sewing Circle's full-length, Nobody Gets What We're Saying, at first may appear to be just another ska/punk record, but it isn't. The 13 track LP stands out on top from a lot of major label signed bands based on quality alone. These high school musicians have proved that you don't need a lot of money to create a good sounding and professionally looking record. The bands latest release features all original tunes with clever lyrics about insecure fat girls and poseur fans. The band mixes things up through a rainbow of genres including dub, funk, ska, jazz, classic rock and even a political service announcement from our president himself. The entire album will make you put on your dancing shoes and clap your hands. Who said that ska is a dead genre? The Manic Sewing Circle is alive and out there for your ears.


amazing cd!
make another one soon!!
with the material on this cd, its bound to be a hit!
everysong is amazing and i cant get over how great you guys are!!
i managed to see you at the metro, and it blew my fucking mind out!
but anyways, this is a review. im not really gonna review it, just praise it.
i need to see another one of your shows, and all the people reading this, you need to go out and buy their cd.
im not a close/family friend, so i am not trying to support them because they're my friends, im just an impressed fan. but really go out, and listen to all the tracks, because you will enjoy every bit of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


word up! this band rocks!
tons of energy and real dancy ska, great cd

William Lange

siqq as fuck
i've seen these guys live a lot of times, and even though they have line-up changes, the sound and soul is still the same, with some tweaks of course.


this cd is effing awesome!
So here it is. The debut CD from Manic Sewing Circle, "Nobody Gets What We're Saying", came out December 28. It was released at Midwest Ska Fest, a show I am sure that some of you lucky sons of bitches went to.
This is, by far, one of the best ska CD's that I've heard in awhile. My dwindling interest in the genre has been revived. Upon listened to the CD, I was amazed that such incredible music was the product of five kids that are still in high school. But it is. Having the drummer, Giancarlo "Carlo" Iannotta, sit next to you in algebra and needing the chemistry explained to him on a fairly consistent basis just makes it seem a bit farfetched. These are real kids, grappling through teenage life, just like anyone else. Now don't let me make this sound like an emo CD. It is far from it.
"Nobody Gets What We're Saying" is a must own for any ska-lover, or music fan in general. Pumping the music with two saxophones, played by Anders Pollack and Kenny Spalla, topnotch guitar skills from Ben Adams, and snazzy bass rhythms, courtesy of Drew Banzhaf, this band definitely knows what they're doing. With songs intermixing into Latin and funk beats and others pushing into a punk flavor, this is one album that covers everything. The themes behind the songs range over topics from politics to late night t.v. to bashing the kids who go to shows and don't even pretend to give a shit about the music, as they are too into themselves.
