About the Band:

“A fart from a child born without a butthole”, is what MANGCHI sounds like said 1 of the 2 people who were let into a room to hear this new sound. The second person, John Cusack , actor/comedian/artist from such films as “SAY ANYTHING” and “ROADSIDE PROPHETS” described the music as “If korn, depeche mode and the beastie boys were forced in a bus together to tour north korea, and all their lead singers quit in the middle of the tour, and the band picked up the korean versions of Debbie Gibson, Stacey-Q, and buddy Holly to replace the singers who just happened to be hitchhiking on The north korean countryside road, and then they all got in a tour bus accident and all got whiplash and broken bones, but Kim JONG UN made them play a show anyways with broken necks right on the side of road using the broken car parts as instruments over the non-existent ambulance sirens, that’s the closest I can get to describing the MANGCHI sound…. So basically listening to GOD’s voice as he’s hitting puberty… so basically Art.”

Jeremy Fish Music Capsule Collection: An Homage To Hip-Hop’s Golden 90s

“1994 was a golden year. It was the year I moved to San Francisco to skateboard and attend The SF Art Institute. It was also a golden year for Hip Hop. Nas’s “Illmatic”, Gang Starr’s “Hard To Earn”, Notorious B.I.G. “Ready To Die”, Beastie Boys “Ill Communication”, Method Man “Tical”, Jeru The Damaja’s “The Sun Rises In the East”, Scarface, Digable Planets, Saafir, Casual, and many other amazing albums. The illustrations for these tee shirts were inspired by celebrating the 20th anniversary of these amazing records, and the affect they had on me then, and now.” – Jeremy Fish
