Mantar Debut Video For Cover Of Sonic Youth’s “100%”


Today saw Mantar release a video for their cover of Sonic Youth‘s “100%“. The band enlisted Matthis Van De Meulen to direct the clip, which you can check out below. The band’s take on the track appears on their forthcoming covers album, “Grungetown Hooligans II“, which Brutal Panda Records will have out on June 26th.

That outing also finds the band putting their spin on L7, The Jesus Lizard and more. Frontman/guitarist Hanno Klänhardt commented of this latest cover:

“‘100%‘ was the first song I´ve ever heard from Sonic Youth. Probably on some old mixtape I got from Erinc (drums). The song just rocks, is short and spot on. Perfect Rock ‘n Roll. It still gives me the chills and was the perfect gateway drug for all the wonderful music this exceptional band had to offer. Obviously our video is a homage to the original video and therefore a big bonus for us skateboard pros.”

The band’s recently released cover of Mazzy Star‘s “Ghost Highway” from the album is also available as part of a benefit label sampler from Brutal Panda Records. That compilation is available here with a pay-what-you-want pricing scheme.

All proceeds from that outing will go towards Campaign Zero, with the label to match all donations through the month of June.
