MANNEQUIN MEN- 'S/T' 7". Chicago's MANNEQUIN MEN have deep pockets of appreciation for the lost sounds of New Zealand pop and Pacific Northwestern punk blues. This 7-inch record is their first foray with Criminal IQ Records. "Private School" nails the icy guitar tone of early '80s Flying Nun art/pop, and with singer KEVIN RICHARDS' agonizingly slobbering vocal style dripping between the riffs, it connects instantly and locks the Mannequin Men in place as one of Chicago's best new bands to check out. If you dig stuff like THE CLEAN, WIPERS or TELEVISION, this ones a must have.
