“Nothing is held back when it comes to repping the slimy, punky mystery that surrounds every fiber of this band’s being. At the core, there’s a folk rock element to The Manx’s sound, but that’s about as close to nailing down their style as you can get before the oozy, Bunglian, black metal, punk, and retro-futuristic tentacles take hold... we can’t get enough of it.”

Mystery Skum and The Odyssey of Goo is a collection of previously unreleased tracks, remixes, reinterpretations, guest spots, and noise experiments, created as a companion to avant-garde punk act The Manx’s last LP, Voyage in Bad Taste. Guest features include Justin Roiland of Rick and Morty, Buzz Osborne (The Melvins), Ryan Kattner (Man Man, Honus Honus), JR Slayer aka Cody Votolato (Blood Brothers, Head Wound City), as well as many other respected artists.
Mystery Skum and The Odyssey of Goo, the band's upcoming album, will be released on limited edition slime green cassette (limited to 200) as well as digitally. Preorder link here.
Animated and slime-slathered, The Manx have morphed over time from an acoustic folk-punk three piece into their current form- an explosive, bubble-fueled, arcade-amped quintet featuring obscure instruments, cartoon stylings, and their own wonky lexicon. The Manx are a surrealist, experimental punk act made up of full-time animators and artists for networks including Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Warner Bros. Studios, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon. Cynical and gritty but simultaneously whimsical, exotic uptempo orchestrations feature eccentricities such as the electric accordion, electric banjo, and upright bass. The Manx manifest an incredibly adrenalized, uniquely eclectic sound influenced by music ranging from GWAR, to The Locust, to They Might Be Giants.
