Before Tame Impala & Pond, there was MINK MUSSEL CREEK. With an album recorded three years ago and a band that no longer plays together, MMC are set to release their new longplayer Munk Mussel Manticore and sure are generating a tonne of buzz.
This may be because the band features some of the biggest leg-ends running around the Perth music scene, including Pond’s Nick Allbrook and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker. This may also be because the band has a built a mystique over the years, through tales of their live shows and fuzzy bootlegs and demos.
Mink Mussel Manticore is an absolute carousal of unhinged madness, 7-tracks of stomping riffs and bustling breaks that will leave you confused and a little dazed, but thoroughly satisfied.
