The Manhattan Love Suicides is like a band of the late eighties in many ways; first of all because of their sound: they seem as they should have been contemporaries of bands such as JAMC, The Primitives or any C86 band. Then, because of their release philosophy: they released an album months after they started as a band and a bunch of singles some of them put together in a compilation released late last year. But they also have this contemporary feeling with many American bands that sound extremely British like The Pains of Being Pure at Heart or Crystal Stilts with the exception that they're actually from Leeds. 5 Seven inches and a Cd single in no much more than a year, delivered in different labels like Magic Marker, Lost Music and Squirrel Music and some other different songs spread in many compilations as well. And they are currently recording a full album to be out in the following months. This is hard work!!!
