Koufax, Man Factory

Man Factory didn't want me to hear their demo. That's what the Arlington band told their good friend Eric Michener, known better as Denton's Fishboy, when they handed him a CD-R of their four-track experiments, and fortunately, he broke his promise and burnt me a copy. Indeed, the recklessness of the band's first recordings will fit well in Fishboy fans' collections. Imagine the fun and whimsy of the first years of Beat Happening, only with actual talent behind the tunes--these A-town kids have a great handle on their guitars and synthesizers, and they rock out in spite of their nerdy lyrics. Hit their MySpace site, myspace.com/manfactory, to get a taste of their awesome college rock before seeing them open for Kansas power-poppers Koufax on Thursday.
