Anton Barbeau plays "pre-apocalyptic psychedelic pop." He's a Taurus, born in Sacramento and now living by a canal in Berlin. He's made something like 30 albums and has worked with members of XTC, The Soft Boys, the Bevis Frond, Cake, the Loud Family, Elf Power and
the Corner Laughers. Julian Cope got him stoned in Croydon once. His new album, Manbird, ain't bad at all.
