MANSUN - Revlon Revolution (Tape)
The year was 1995 and it was all going a bit Brit-Pop, then along came Mansun. Originally named after Charles Manson, changing the spelling saved on legal fees. Mansun were out there on their own, with a fanatical often obsessive following. A genre defying band with an extreme sartorial excellence and ellegence. Their sound ranged from; Prog to Punk and Pop to Rock, sometimes in the space of one song. They released a string of brilliant E.P’s and 3 albums before disbanding in 2003, during that time they worked with both punk pioneer Howard Devoto and dance music pioneers 808 State. Mansun filled the void left by the Manic Street Preachers after Richey’s disappearance and provided an anti-dote to Brit Pop, for that a lot of music fans were grateful. This recording is a bootleg tape featuring Radio sessions and live tracks recorded between 96-97. It’s just a click away!
