The first Mantits CD on Pretend You're Happy, recorded/engineered/mastered by Tom Demers. There's a wide range of song styles on this one (relatively speaking, of course). Let Me Fuckin Die, This is Transient, Fun N' Blowjobs, and Just Be Thankful You're Not Dead are definitive Mantitsian anthems of social disgust and orthodox twisted logic. This is the definitive recording of early Mantits.
"Mantits Self-Titled CD: Holy shit! This CD kicks ass! Lo-Fi acoustic humor at it’s best. Not only are the songs clever, but they’re well written as well. Great melodies. If you’re into Wally Pleasent, you’ll love this." (from Fresno City Hardcore)
"Mantits: Self-Titled. Outside: plastic sleeve, black and white illustration of nuclear explosion, 32 song titles like "Let Me Fuckin' Die," "Uterus of Hate," "That's Why I Fucking Hate Them All." Inside: no information about who is responsible, where to get the record, anything at all. On the CD-R: Acoustic guitar, passable vocals (occasionally in annoying silly voices), "whimsical" lyrics sung with no subtlety ("someday I'll have a six pack / and you can wash your clothes on my gut / someday I'll have a six pack / the archetypal male slut"), no creativity, and no fun. For about an HOUR. Kill me or kill him, but this cannot continue." (by Josh D of ACTION MAN Magazine)

MANTITS: the Pursuit of Happiness

1). Ballad of the monkeys
2). Box away from the world
3). Stranded
4). Running from the silence
5). Everything
6). Poisoned and alone
7). Fuckhead in the phonebooth
8). Love ain't real
9). Black empty holes
10). Nothing
11). All the dogshit
The second Mantits CD on Pretend You're Happy, now available through Spare Change Records, recorded at Graycliff, mastered at Alterscheist. For those who were into the slower, more depressing-euphoric songs from the first CD like Uterus of Hate and You're the One with the Problem, these are the Mantits for you. The album is shorter, and the song order makes more of a unified whole than the first, with more melody and less brutal sardonic humor. Note: the moral of the story of the album, much like all Mantits, is ultimately meant to be hopeful and inspiring; there is a reason All the Dogshit is the final track, and it's not so that people will turn off the CD sobbing before they make it there...duh!!!
