MANIKINS: Crocodiles: LP

Great record here from this excellent Swedish band. A strong mix of garage punk, power pop, and good ol’ 1977 style punk give this LP a great sound. There is just a little something extra here that makes this band stand out from the crowd. Far from just another Euro blown-out garage record, The Manikins have real songwriting ability. I cannot recommend this LP enough for fans of punk rock to sing along to.
