Album Review: Jonny Manak & The Depressives – “Primitive Sounds For A Modern World”

Posted in Shattered Platter, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on 04/20/2013 by Shattered Platter

Well, this is kind of a stray away from my normal material that usually consists of heavy music but hell, it’s refreshing!

The Bay Area, home of Anchor Steam beer, the hated SF Giants, birthplace of US thrash metal and the current home of a bad ass garage punk band called Jonny Manak & The Depressives.

Who is Jonny Manak & The Depressives you ask?!?   This band is 3 piece powerhouse from the San Jose/Oakland area who stick to their guns and influences when it comes to bangin’ out good ol’ rock n’ roll tunes and LPs (they’ve released 3 so far)   Band consists of:

– An ex pro skateboarder named Jonny Manak (Fun Fact: His brother Chris, is the head of indie hip hop label giant Stones Throw Records)

– Flogging Molly’s/Dee Dee Ramone/Streetwalkin Cheetah’s ex bassist Bobby Wilcox.

– Flexx Bronco’s own Andy on the drums

What are they releasing you ask?!?  A new album of course, duh!  Their new record is called Primitive Sounds for A Modern World and is being released via a partnership between Manak’s own Reach Around Records and a new start up called Self Destructo Records.  14 tracks of garage rock hymns is what your getting with this. 

When is this coming out?!?  Street date for this polyvinyl chloride infused piece of fun is set for early May but you can now download the album in it’s entirety via iTunes or stream it over Spotify.

Album cover is awesome, props to David McHank for the tiki man sketch!

So, let’s get in the review part.  This album is really fun and super catchy to the ears, take it from me a…a guy who practically listens to nothing but Goatsnake and Turbonegro….this album was really fun.

These 14 tracks make you move your head like the way when you first heard Radio Birdman’s “Radios Appear” album back when you were first getting into punk rock.  I specfically note the track “Ride the Barrell (and get Pitted) as the cream of this album though, that track’s tempo and hooks are as catchy as it gets.

Another foot tapper is the song Wha-Bam! (which by coincidence has kinda become his trademark saying with the band). It sounds like something The Saint’s would have done but obviously came to late on it, total power pop sounding track.

This album is not just a studio album but also a live album as Side B was recorded during a live session at KFJC over in the San Jose area. Songs from this side consist of back catalog material + new material that never had proper studio release (from what I understand is in the works!).

All in all, Primitive Sounds For A Modern World is a fun album from the starting track :Wha-Bam!: to the finishing track of the consequence of choosing a road to travel and bearing the outcomes “Choose My Fate.”

3 guys, a home studio, a passion for doing what they love and making it happen regardless of the outcome. America, take notice!

1. Black Sabbath “Black Sabbath” 
this is the first “dark” record i ever owned. I was a kid when I heard the rain at the beginning of this classic album. It still inspires me! N.I.B. , the Wizard, Black Sabbath, Evil Woman. (to name a few). You know this record, and if you don’t, go fuck yourself! Ha Ha !  Anyways, the cover was banned in the U.S. , so it came out in the states a year late. released in 1969 (internationally) as a gatefold with an upside down cross inside! Released in U.S. in 1970 without cross and no gatefold. 😦  land of the free
Image
2. Black Flag “Damaged”
From start to finish, the most intense record (without losing hooks and chorus’) ever made. I wish there was something new that would move me, the way this record does. I would be there biggest fan!
Image
3. TurboNegro “Ass Cobra”
ha ha ha ha ha ha !!!!!!!!! those who know, live it. those who don’t, learn it. you wont be sorry. I love it.
Image
4. Gx Gx  A l l i N & the Murder Junkies “Brutality & Bloodshed for All”
holy shit! pissed off and pissed on! ha ha GG forever! lyrics he wrote while in prison, his most angry record ever! Love the Jabbers stuff too! Gems: I’ll Slice your throat , Highest Power , Take Aim , Brutality and Bloodshed for All.
B-L-O-O-D-S-H-E-D Now!!!!!!

5. Cro-Mags “Age of Quarrel” 
first saw this band with GBH at Fenders International Grand Ball Room. I was 14 or 15 years old and I can remember them elevating on stage! i was pretty young very high and also very moved by there music, so i was probably trippin’! all the same , this record kills! Please get this , if you don’t already know.  WE GOTTA KNOW
Image
6. Bad Brains “Rock for Light”
Fuck Yeah. We can ALL only wish to be as bad ass as Bad Brains.
Image
7. Trash Talk “Shame”
The best band i’ve seen and heard in a long time. I choose “Shame” because it’s the “Walking Disease” 45 , “Plagues” 45, “Trash Talk S/T” album, and “East of Eden” 45  all on one LP. all the best stuff. also get “Eyes and Nines” LP. buy the records , go see them live. these guys are the best.
Image
8. Ramones “Road to Ruin”
Yeah, yeah she’s the one!
still my favorite
Image
9. Dwarves “Blood Guts and Pussy” 
Going down to the drug store! I saw this lineup at the country club in Reseda. they played with the Melvins , Chemical People and headliners Poison Idea!  Blag punched me in the face during the gem “Astro Boy” when i came back to hit him back he had jumped into the drums and they were done! I love this band so much , i joined them in 1993. been making records with them ever since!!!!!

ANGEL OF DEATH
