GREATEST HOUSE PARTY - EVER
:: Loose Canon ::
19 November 2004 / The BierKeller / Manchester
By Ged Camera

Don’t let the aKouStiK AnaRKHY associations allow any preconceptions of loose, free for all events to cloud your judgment of Loose Cannon. They are maybe manchester's most intelligent group, articulate lyricists and knowledgeable musicians who enjoy in blurring the line between performer and audience. So much so that their events are more of a social gathering of friends - more of that later - tonight’s occupation of the stage area by said friends is typical of the audience willingness to be part of an occasion, that invariably sees a guitar or microphones passed around to anyone who wants it. The band mainly wish to dispense their melodic mix of folk and rock with a dollop of good time feelings and upbeat vibes that would put a sly smile on the face of any Scrooge.

It may seem that everything is put together along the Einstein theory of randomness i.e. “What are we going to do next?”, but it’s extremely
well produced and with Paul F on the mixing desk, the sound will be as good as the venue will allow. The down side is that they may struggle to capture the vibrant, live atmosphere on any studio recording, but it will allow them to display their ever improving musical talents

Mind you their legendary (well, in the Withington suburb of Manchester at least) practice sessions occasionally take the guise of a house party at a friends house with pa and 100+ friends popping around to sing in the sunrise. So if you ever find out that this lot live near you - move, but remember to get an invite to the party
