Menswear (sometimes written “Menswe@r”) were a Britpop band formed in October 1994 from Camden in London. They released a number of singles and an album, Nuisance on London Records. They recorded a second album which was released in Japan only and broke up in 1998.
The beginnings of the band were a feature in a Select article about a supposed London mod revival led by Graham Coxon. Two individuals closely associated with the burgeoning Britpop scene, Chris Gentry and Johnny Dean, made references to a “top new unsigned band” (Menswear), an act which did not yet exist. They later appeared on the cover of Melody Maker before they had released any material.[citation needed] Their dress sense was Mod (tight fitting suits etc.) whilst their music was influenced by both Blurs second album Modern Life Is Rubbish and Elastica. Gentry and Dean had a single song – called “Daydreamer” – but soon recruited friend Simon White, who contributed “I’ll Manage Somehow” to add to the setlist necessary for their upcoming debut gig at a Britpop-oriented club on Regent Street called Smashing. The music press reviewed their performance enthusiastically, with the NME comparing them to a “Tarantino film… totally derivative but totally brilliant”, increasing the record labels’ interest.
After a frantic race between record companies, they had signed to London Records for £90,000 and a lucrative 18.5% gross revenues after just their fifth gig. Shortly afterwards, they signed a £500,000 publishing deal despite having just seven songs in their repertoire – working out at around £70,000 per song.
