HASH(0x9b66ed24) out of 5 stars Where oh where did "The Men" go? 26 Mar. 2005
By Il Moro di Venezia - Published on
Format: Audio CD
What a fun band these guys were. They were a little like Dada, the Southern Cali rock trio best known for "Dizz Knee Land". I had what was probably a pretty unique experience of seeing The Men perform back in 1992 at Bumbershoot, Seattle's end-of-summer outdoor festival. They put on a show full of great charisma - everyone there was on their feet and having a teerrific time. Jef Scott's songs could swing from edgy rock (their signature "Church of Logic, Sin and Love") to funky grooves ("King of Central Park") to well-crafted pop ("Goodnight Sally" and "Where You Found Me"). The pop songs seem to indicate a Steely Dan influence, particularly the mid-life anthem "I Built My House This Way". As a band they had a double-shot of guitar talent with Scott and Lore Wilhelm (actually, half of The Men were women: guitarist Wilhelm and bassist Nancy Hathorn were balanced with Scott and drummer David Botkin). Wilhelm had a wild, rough sound while Scott had a tighter, slicker (but no less muscular) style that was found in the highly compressed guitar sound common during that time in early 1990s rock. Hathorn and Botkin held the rhythm section as an understated but pulsing duet that owed a great deal to what they didn't play as much to what they did play. It's a shame there was no follow up album to this one. They were definitely on to something good.

HASH(0x9b640a14) out of 5 stars THE MEN - Self/titled Debut 23 July 2015
By TrebBassMan - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I heard the hit single "Church of Logic Sin and Love" many years ago on 92KQRS in Minneapolis (c 1992'ish), and I really digged the live bluesy vibe of the song even at the tender age of 13. Later when I had a job and cash I was able to track down a cassette tape and finally get a copy. With the invention of the internet in the last 90's, I was able to find a CD copy. I really enjoy this album and it is fun all the way through. This album will always hold a special place in my mind because I like the sound of the snare hit so much. There isn't really another band that had that type of crack. With the invention of Facebook I was able to find and emailed the drummer, Dave Botkin and ask him what they used. He mentioned it was a Ludwig snare and that he still had it.

The track "Church of Logic Sin and Love" is one of the best spoken word type tunes, with a great climax. "Love Siren" is always a fun song to listen to. And "Blue Town" the album opener, is a solid really cool intro to the album and band. Jef Scott has performed in many bands since then and THE MEN have reunited a few times recent years and one can catch them live in LA or on youtube. It's too bad THE MEN didn't stick around for a second release. It would have been fun to hear more tunes like this. Enjoy!

HASH(0x9b695098) out of 5 stars little known - worth a listen 13 April 2010
By George Bereschik - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Years ago I happened upon a cassette (tells you just how long ago!) of this in a bargain bin at some grocery store. I wasn't expecting much, but was hooked after the first listen.
Alas, the cassettes and cassette player went the route of the 8-tracks. So I was glad to re-discover The Men on CD recently.
"Church of Logic, Sin, and Love" is a great song.
Too bad Amazon doesn't have listening samples.

I've looked for this CD for years and finally found it. A little known band that published too few songs but is a mainstay on my MP3 player now!
