An action moment, a reflective moment, a sex scene (oo-er) and a twist all in one
:: Red Vinyl Fur ::
07 May 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
By Captain Cornell TBTA

To me, Red Vinyl Fur have always been just another band in the Manchester scene. I don’t mean that in a bad way by any means, but they’ve always just been there, played their gigs and made their own developments regardless of trends and causes. But tonight, the all-girl 4-piece contained enough power, intelligence and ability to cast these previous presumptions away and start the ball rolling. Their physical presence resembles Throwing Muses whilst their musical presence of 80’s Indie Goth and heavyish, lick-laden guitar pop is the soundtrack to the greatest film that never was. There’s an action moment, a reflective moment, a sex scene (oo-er) and a twist all in one.

Each musician is a character in this film. Lead guitarist and unofficial leader Kara is a dominant figure and a key player. The bassist loves what she does and seems comfortable and happy in her role as support. She has an infectious smile and warm persona. Rhythm Queen Mandy hangs back a little more but she’s one to watch! It’s life affirming, heart-warming genius that

makes a boring Tuesday a Saturday night with your new friends.

Highly recommended.
