Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Don't Laugh, You're Next

Mannequin Beach was a Lincoln, Nebraska-based punk trio Mannequin Beach from 1988 to 1989. They only recorded one album, Don’t Laugh, You’re Next for San Francisco’s great Mordam Records.

It’s a powerful slab of vinyl filled with dark, emotional singing& lyrics with creatively imaginative songs featuring some crazy-good guitar playing.

Maybe the fact that they were from the middle of Nowhere, USA aided their quick decline. Maybe it was the D.I.Y. album cover with photos of road-kill on the front. Whatever the reason, they should have done more. A truly unique sound that I think a lot of people should really like.

Mannequin Beach was: Danny Belick – vocals & guitar; Jeff Straudinger – bass; & Randy Krause – drums (Krause would later play on several Helios Creed projects).
