Manateees: Seek Help 7"
New record from this punk band from Memphis, TN. In the Total Punk tradition, it's crazy loud and mean, but thinking back there's a surprising amount of diversity on this label, so that clearly doesn't say it all. Manateees definitely seem more in the line with the more 70s-inspired punk bands on the label, but they're so much harder and meaner than the bands one would typically reference for that (like, say, the Heartbreakers) that it's really something else entirely. The combination of rawness, musicianship, and aggression definitely brings to mind the best and most straightforward Killed by Death bands... at any rate, this is some raw as hell, filthy and aggressive PUNK.
