These Animal Men Classics Getting Vinyl Reissues :

These Animal Men are one of my favourite bands from the nineties. Just before Britpop became a thing, there was another sparkling scene known as New Wave Of New Wave and These Animal Men were right there at the front of it. A stroppy mix of early Manics decadence and Ramones three minute pop songs, Boag, Hooligan and friends made some glorious music and I hoovered it all up. I remember seeing them live at the Exeter Cavern, which was one of my favourite gigs ever, got a great logo shirt, which I wore for years and the whole audience looked fucking cool.

Now thanks to Demon Music Group, we are getting vinyl reissues of The High Society and Accident And Emergency and most mouth wateringly the classic 1994 debut Too Sussed, linked with my favourite 1995’s Taxi For These Animal Men. These will all arrive on 21st October and will be followed by a boxset on 3rd February 2023, which features everything from These Animal Men and fellow scenesters SMASH in a 6 CD set which also is a must buy, SMASH were another great band and these are some superb albums/EPs and superb reissues. Timeless.
