“The Matchstick Skeletons came out of the grave swinging. Formed by singer/multi-instrumentalist Neu Mannas and drummer Matty Carolei, this was a project years in the making.
Midway through a decade of being on the road. Neu & Matty starting playing together in Head of the Herd. After some chart topping, radio music award winning, major label signing, touring, & record making in England, Wales, the Southern U.S. of A, and throughout their home and native land of Canada, they decided to lock themselves in a tiny dark room and become the band they always wanted to be.
The Matchstick Skeletons... A James Brown/Lemmy love child nobody asked for.
The band's debut single "Told Ya So" came out in the summer of 2018 featuring a music video with a Tarantino/B Horror vibe. Reaching #19 on the Canadian radio rock chart, that single put them on the road for 2 months opening for The Headstones which brings us to The Know-How EP. A collection of their finest road tested music, and a glimpse into the strange world of The Matchstick Skeletons.
Between Screamin' Jay Hawkins and Wanda Jackson lie the Teenage Violets. Reverb soaked deviants that chew up the rock'n'roll rule book and spit it out like a maniac vampire surfing a 50's California acid wave.
