5.0 out of 5 stars The best kept secret in music...? The best band in the world...? What is Fishstick Gumbo?, 10 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Six Demon Bag (Audio CD)
So you think you've heard it all; there are only so many styles and only so many bands out there, what could possible grace my ears which hasn't already been swathed? ...Two words:
MAN MAN.
Six Demon Bag is an album almost impossible to review by a band impossible to categorise, those that have list: Viking Vaudeville, Gypsy Stomp or even Tom Waits being kidnapped by pirates, forced to drink the darkest or ales then sing about the woe's of the world, woes which could include 10b moustaches, spider cider or Van Helsing's boom box.
As a band I know very little about them, other than, the beautifully growled lyrics come from vocalist/pianist Honus Honus. The band are multi-instrumentalist whom swap round from song to song and their live shows are, apparently, legendary.

I first heard of MAN MAN after a friend played me some tracks, at first I was like ummm yeah right, second time, what the hell is this? Then the third time I was like, Whoa these guys are actually amazing, there lyrics are great, the songs are great, the band are so tight, and you sit back feeling like the cool kid in school for listening to that undiscovered gem.

As I said before this album is real hard to review, it's not rock and it's not heavy though in places it is noisy but the noise is always accompanied by beauty, you can listen to it five times and on the sixth you feel like you've never heard it, but I promise you that this album is worth every penny you'll spend on it, and I can also promise you that after hearing it you'll go round to all your friends and ask...have you heard of MAN MAN? Then smerk when they say no.

The best kept secret in music...? The best band in the world...? What is Fishstick Gumbo?
