We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of the 304 Angstroms remix of The Manx’s song “Black In The Trash” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming remix and oddities album, Mystery Skum and The Odyssey of Goo, which is scheduled to be released on July 20, 2018. You can purchase the album here.
The bubbly, cartoony and croony accordion led “Back In The Trash” gets a demented makeover with Jeremy Kerners, “Black In The Trash (304 Angstroms Remix)”. Kerner might best be known for his finger gymnastics as the guitarist in LA’s psycho jazz-core group Feather Wolf, but his musical prowess knows no bounds as it extends into mad scientist territory with this windy and demonic re-interpretation of a Manx classic.
About the band:
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.
Lyrically, the band likes to make things “gooey and vibrant,” and the same can be said of their live performances (think sparkly hot pants and slime- lots of slime). Topics range from being eaten by huge moth larvae, to the mundaneness of office life, to the pitfalls and hypocrisies of organized religion, to the feelings one might experience if their entombed and mummified grandmother came back to life after having been dead for 5,000 years. It’s all very visual, cryptic, and fun, which aligns perfectly when considering the fact that the majority of the band members work or have worked for projects such as Rick and Morty, Uncle Grandpa, Eric Andre, and Robot Chicken (as only a small sampling of their extremely impressive collective creative resumes).
