Mannequin Records was established in Burlington. We sometimes used an office in Oakville too.

Re comment #2:
Antennas is from 1987 and not good. I have a 7" with "No Words" on both sides. Glamatron had an LP that I've seen but never cheaply enough to take a chance on it. Apparently it has some minimal/synth collector interest. Living End 7" I have. "Death At An Early Age" is OK and the A side is a Steppenwolf cover if I remember right. Murray Reid and Skoolboyz are just rock from what I vaguely remember, at least what I've heard. Falcon I've seen recently for sale online but someone beat me to it. Back Street Alley, The Reasons and Song Supply are new to me.

I don't know Back Street Alley or the Reasons but I wouldn't waste time or money on any of the others.
