Biography

Man Man is a fearlessly unique band from Philadelphia. The group's fifth full length album On Oni Pond features an arresting reconstruction of the group's visionary sound – stripped to its core and rebuilt as something new and compelling yet still very much Man Man. This marked shift is a direct result of an intensive collaboration between the band's frontman, Honus Honus, ... Read more in Amazon's Man Man Store

Editorial Reviews

Philadelphia's Man Man have found the perfect berth for their gypsy-swamp-rock-carny-soul-Viking-vaudeville-punk collective. This record matches the fierce energy of their non-stop live shows, which utilize a variety of more traditional instruments (accordion, Moog, xylophone) along with such noisemakers as soup pots, shoes, squeaky toys, and a fire extinguisher. With a following that sells out clubs coast to coast and with a kinetic stage presence, Man Man are a musical contagion waiting to happen. They've toured with Cat Power, Arcade Fire, and Modest Mouse.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...but mama I know I'm possessed by your daughter! April 10, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I became aware of Man Man just over a year ago, instantly falling in love with their previous two albums. One of the great things about this group is despite their experimental nature, their music is catchy in such a way that more conventional listeners can appreciate it as well. So far, "Rabbit Habits" is the epitome of this-- opting out of some of the crash-bang noise found on the first two records, in favor of songs that are more in the realm of "Van Helsing Boom Box" and "Gold Teeth" from their older recordings. However, I wouldn't say Man Man has strayed away from their energetic berserker style that lured me toward their work in the first place. Personal favorites include: Top Drawer, Poor Jackie, Easy Eats, Harpoon Fever...

5.0 out of 5 stars Catchy, Catchy, Catchy April 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD
With this effort, the members of Man Man experiment further with utterly bizarre music composition and performance. It seems as though their line-up descriptions always accurately sum up the sound of their work (take, for example, the vocal depictions "stab throat," "glow worm throat," and "cougar throat"). One might imagine that this couldn't possibly leave an audience in the dark, as they already know what to expect.

...But one should never assume what Man Man has to offer.

That being said, this release is a bit more accessible than Six Demon Bag. I loved SDB, but generally for the "catchier" tunes like "Black Mission Goggles" and "Push the Eagle's Stomach." Rabbit Habits takes the style of these songs and utilizes it in such a way that the whole album is interesting from beginning to end.

For the moment, the band has done away with excessively goofy music ("Engrish Bwudd," anyone?) and has created something to truly be proud of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Album January 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Man Man's latest album can accurately be described as "circus music for regular people", employing a wide range of instruments like piano, keyboard, xylophone, trumpet, horns, saxophone, guitar, bass, drums, bells and melodica. Man Man also use unusual things like trash cans, wrenches, and bottle rockets to get interesting sounds for their music.

The songs sound reminiscent of tunes from Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, and Tom Waits, but without aping these artists. Although nearly every song is a standout, some listeners can be turned off by the lengths of the last two tracks. Don't be one of those people; these are possibly the two best songs on the entire album. What are you waiting for? Give it a listen!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd Never Heard a Xylophone Solo Before December 9, 2013
By LaLaLiz
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is honestly my favorite Man Man album. The music is eclectic, bringing in a variety of instruments that one might not expect in modern music, like the xylophone and glockenspiel. Each song tells a story, and it's a wild ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mysteries Of The Universe Unraveled July 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
It's the title of one of the songs, and as good a description of Man Man's sound as any. These guys never fail to impress. With this album, they've refined their sound further from Six Demon Bag, and that has resulted mostly in catchier hooks (the catchiest being Top Drawer). The songwriting, already phenomenal on the first two albums, only continues to get better here. The last two songs, in particular, are difficult to listen to while doing almost anything else. I always find myself spacing out, listening closer to the lyrics and the intricacies of the music. I love this band, and can't wait to hear more from them.
