Manateees Madness




Local punk group Manateees have just released their debut album, and that's the grotesque album artwork above. After a few tours and a handful of now hard-to-find singles on labels like Tic Tac Totally and Goner Records, Manateees have finally sat still long enough to crank out a full length that their record label calls a "nasty, cruel journey into dark places."

New Orleans punk label Pelican Pow Wow is responsible for the full length, the same institution behind Buck Biloxi and the F*cks, Mac Blackout Band and other fine musical acts. Pick up the Sit and Spin album directly from the band, or from one of the handful of record stores in town. Check out the video below to get a better understanding of what Manateees are all about, or road trip to one of their upcoming shows listed below!
