Monomen - Skin & Bones

This is the Sept. 1992 Singles Club release.

Monomen was a Seattle-based garage rock band. Perfect for Sub Pop and all that they were doing. It seems like every once in a while, after some Japanese pop, or something else completely different, Sub Pop'd go back to their roots in the Singles Club and throw us all some red meat rock. A few chords with a lot of distortion to placate the masses, which consisted of 2500  subscribers around this time. I suppose the motor-oiled cartoon chick is a reference to their garage rock thing, which has a slight retro-sound to it. Fun stuff.

A: Skin & Bones
B: Comanche
