The phrase “Whatever you are, be a good one,” most oftenly attributed to Abraham Lincoln appears to be a piece of advice that the Men have taken to heart. When they were a hardcore punk band, bashing out noisy juggernauts in the vein of Big Black and the Jesus Lizard, they were a good one. When they transformed themselves into a more of a straightforward '70s punk influenced band with shades of surf rock and Americana, they were a good one. Their latest offering New Moon finds the New York group diving deeper down the rabbit hole, throwing everything against the wall and seeing what sticks. In doing so, they’ve defied any categorization other than perhaps the all-encompassing “rock band,” and as always, they are a good one.
