Mandates/Mother’s Children- Split 7". When I heard that Mandates and Mother's Children were doing a record together, I absolutely couldn't wait for it to come out! A Mandates/Mother's Children split struck me as an incredibly great idea. Here you've got two of the best bands out there - friends, tour mates, and leading players in the Canadian punk/powerpop movement that's been setting the world on fire the last few years. If you're only familiar with one of these bands, you won’t be disappointed. Each group contributes an A-side caliber slice of power poppin' rock n' roll goodness. Recommended.
