How we missed this in our in-box (from way back in March) is beyond us, but miss it we did. We need to right that wrong!
Black Manila have featured a few times on MM with their blend of classic west coast garage riffs, Detroit proto-punk and British charm, that combined makes a heady and compelling marriage.
To celebrate the recent release of their debut single Shake That Thing, they are giving away the infectious and addictive Père Lachaise as a free download. For anyone enthralled by the recent success of Ty Segall, Mikal Cronin, The Allah Las et al, or a lover of the 60s sounds of the Sonics or the Seeds, you will find much to enjoy here. In fact we defy anyone with functioning ears not to be toe-tappin’ and head-bobbin’ before you’re halfway through this song.Follow @madmackerel
