The Bad Beats and The MANTS LP release party!!: The Bad Beats, The Mants, The Lizard People

$12 at the door only.
Presented by:
After a short hiatus, The Bad Beats return just in time to release
their debut LP/CD, "His Vengeful Hand" on Germany's
Soundflat Records. The liner notes of the LP read...

The legacy of Canadian Fuzz is in good hands -- The Bad Beats debut album proves it. The lessons from their Canuck grandfathers -- The Painted Ship, Les Lutins, The Haunted, and so many more 1960s legends from the Great White North -- have been consumed, digested and spit out with a new ferocity that dispels for once and for all the social myth that Canadians are polite people.
No, these Bad Beats are nasty people, with nasty sounds -- born quite literally in their garage -- where car fumes, cold beer, a fuzz box and a beat up Farfisa organ have pushed them to blast out the album you hold in your hands right now.
"Knock Yourself Out" is a perfect theme to start the mayhem, equal parts spittle and beer-fueled party fun. "His Vengeful Hand" has a cool voodoo vibe, and "She Don't Talk To Me" will have you bopping all the way to the keg and then back to the dance floor. The BBs also pay homage to the classics, with the Miracle Workers' "Love Has No Time" given a reverent treatment worthy of garage royalty.
Yes, Canadian Fuzz is in good hands. The Bad Beats are here.

Joining them will be, from Victoria BC,
The MANTS, who will be releasing their long-awaited
debut LP, "Do The Dummy!" on Deadbeat Records.

The MANTS are a garage rock trio based in Victoria, BC Canada. They perform in suits and rubber ant heads. "Half Man! Half Ant! All Action!" The MANTS play high-octane B-movie fueled schtick rawk that owes equally to The Sonics, Billy Childish and pulp sci-fi novels from the 50's.
"Do The Dummy!" is the first full-length album from the MANTS, on Ohio based label Deadbeat Records. It follows up on four previous 7-inch EP's from Mangalor, Estrus, Lance Rock and Roto-Flex records respectively, plus a self-titled cassette-only release on Shake Records in 2015. "Do The Dummy!" was recorded at the Noise Floor Studio on Gabriola Island, BC by Jordan Coop (You Say Party!, Needles//Pins). Cover art by renowned Winnipeg-based artist Merinuk.
