Mastering Maniac “Chola Queen” on No Front Teeth Records.

“Gentlemen Punks from Los Angeles who are / were in these bands: Clorox Girls, Cute Lepers, The Girls, Images, L.A. Drugz, Red Dons. Now in MANIAC. Bringing together their varied gazpacho of musical influences, the Maniac sound is lean and angular with sonic walls of power chords, biting leads and catchy vocal delivery of lyrics that are comic yet have a dark sense of humour. Themes range from sexual frustration to internal turmoil. Maniac are a quintessentially L.A. band and bring to the table a deep understanding of the city they live in and the music they play.”

Mastering the forthcoming Maniac LP.

“The men in Maniac supply us with a brand of catchy punk rock with abundant retro influences. There are elements of old punk rock, power pop, mod and even some new wave sprinkled in here and there. However, the band doesn’t hide behind all of this like some second rate nostalgic cover band. They’ve got the control and persona to use their influences as a tool rather than a crutch. After all with these guys; former and current members of Cute Lepers, Clorox Girls, Rough Kids, The Girls, Images, and L.A. Drugz it’s a mathematical impossibility for this band to suck!”
