Animals & Men

You gotta hand it to Mississippi Records, which has been exposing conscientious music connoisseurs to an arsenal of great rare and unreleased 20th-century recordings for the last five years. When Mississippi released Never Bought Never Sold, a collection of singles and demos by the UK post-punk band Animals and Men, I was floored by the urgent rhythms, the arty new wave that peppered the punk strum and thud, and Susan Wells' persuasive demeanor and mechanically virtuous vocal inflections. They were in the throes of an evolving sound that bred and bled with new ideas, and they, along with other women of punk's wild west—like Essential Logic—created something that remains politically, socially, and sonically relevant nearly 30 years after their initial breakup.
