Special Edition: Man Man

Philadelphia circus Man Man darn near stole the show as the support band for Modest Mouse on Halloween. The quintet showed up in costumes and at some point in the show all of them were playing percussion (by that I mean CO2 cans, car keys, Christmas ornaments, marimba and a pan of water), in addition to trumpet, sax, keys, drums, guitar, bass, melodicas and a bunch of other stuff. They even performed a couple of magic tricks. In the interview, ringleader Ryan (aka Honus) talks about changing lineups, changing labels, and his kindred connection to Adam Morrison’s mullet and mustache. Man Man announced this week that it signed with Anti- Records, home to Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Neko Case.
