Mandates- S/T LP. Debut LP from these Calgary, Alberta men out of time. The Mandates have crafted the best '77 punk/power pop album their minds can arrange. Taking cues from classic bands like Teenage Head, Thin Lizzy, New York Dolls and The Jam, The Mandates flawlessy channel that warm lates 70's punk/rock ‘n roll feel and do it alot better than most. Great record if you’re into newer bands like the Exploding Hearts, Red Dons, Missing Monuments and The Cry. Recorded, mixed and produced by Pat Kearns (Exploding Hearts, Clorox Girls, Terry & Louie, Observers) to boot.
