"The lyrical depth of the Kinks sauteed with the musical overtones of the Flaming Lips and John Spencer Blues Explosion reduction!" gushed one. "Sorry, its more Beta Band meets GBV meets Ralph Stanley" countered another.

"This brilliant Philly collective makes music like you've never heard, a rollicking happy accident that re-imagines Captain Beefheart, Nick Cave and patron saint Tom Waits without being pretentious at all. Claiming Mexican funeral marches, bad luck and religious cults as influences, Man Man's live shows are notoriously riotous affairs that leave audiences stunned but smiling. Their latest album The Man in a Blue Turban With a Face (Ace Fu) magically captures Man Man's amazing musical madness." - URB Recommended if you like: Captain Beefheart, Zappa, The Fugs, Tom Waits.
