MANIFESTO JUKEBOX: Self-titled: CDEP

Re-release of MJ’s first 7” with bonus tracks that were on a split with I Excuse. This was the record that got the buzz going on this Finnish band. They released their first full length, Desire, on numerous labels in Europe and last year stateside released Remedy on BYO. If you like that post punk sound of Fugazi meets Hot Water Music, this band is for you. Any of their releases, including this one, is strong on musicianship and energy. It was good hearing these songs again since I had filed away their 7” a long time ago.
