THE MANATEEES

Superman Dam Fool

(Blak Skul - BSR003) LP $14.50

From 2012 through 2014, The Manateees (with an extra “e” to avoid confusion with some forgettable English DJ group) released single after single on Pelican Pow Wow, Goner, Tic Tac Totally, Jackshack, Ken Rock, and Total Punk. Not a one couldn’t wipe the floor with you; nothing personal, you’re just weak and can’t keep up with inspired raw lunacy. Accept it and move on. The repertoire vocalist-guitarist and Memphis lifer Abe White had built-up over the years — in The Oscars, The Guacos, Everyday Faces, Lover!, and True Sons of Thunder — was recorded with Keith on bass and Charms on drums (same Charms of NOTS fame). Blak Skul’s compilation collects almost all these Memphis-as-fuck singles, and substitutes an alternate version here and there. Edition of 550.
