the manikins-self titled
this is a compilation of the output of the manikins, for the most part a bunch of 7" singles. a band that formed after the demise of the cheap nasties in 1977 after kim salmon left the band to form the scientists. the rest of the band continued as the manikins making some great power pop tunes until they broke up in 1981.
one of the members (mark betts) used the name (sans "the") to form a synth pop band with a female vocalist. they released one album and a few singles.
