Planet Death EP (6 songs)
12inch Vinyl FJ-031
In a music world filled with middle of the road, ego driven, wanna be rock stars, it's a welcomed relief to hear a real hard rocking punk band play like this. Mannekin Piss delivers an onslaught of noisy rhythmic mayhem that brings back the spirit of good old hardcore like The Battalion of Saints. This is not easy listening, but it is so addictive it will give you a rash. The sound is mean and aggressive and they don't slow it down at all.
Mannekin Piss has a pedigree that is very impressive. Each member has been involved with some of the most seminal San Diego bands of the last decade. Members have played in or are still in bands such as Heroin, Clikitatikatowi, The Sultans, Blackheart Procession, Chicano Christ, Rocket from the Crypt, Hot Snakes, Battalion of Saints, Sea of Tombs and many others. Each member brings a history of his own, and the music just explodes because of it.
Guitar: Mario Rubalcaba
Drums: Matt Anderson
Vocals: Dead boy
Bass: Dean Reis
· Another standout track is "Mechanic's Joy Ride" by Mannequin Piss. Fuzzed-
out garage punk played the way it should: loud, thrashy and sloppy.
Hopefully they'll release some more stuff in the future.
Delusions of Adequacy
· Mannequin Piss have not just a great band name but kick a lot of ass too,
ending this comp with some Black Flag styled combustion.
· Noise Rock and Roll. Another great Swami find, loud and brash, that leaves you wanting more.
