Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

WE ROBOT
28 January 2008 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Red Vinyl Fur :: Robots In Disguise :: Daggers (aka / formerly Bureau) ::
Quarter to seven. It's not exactly rock'n'roll time that, is it? More like... tea time

VIVA GLASVEGAS
29 January 2008 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Sugars :: Glasvegas ::
The subject of one song, about that old chestnut the "psycho ex-girlfriend", lives in Manchester now. "She's behind you!" shouts a voice from the crowd...

SNOW SHOW
30 January 2008 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Spectral Fires :: Snowblind :: The Ending Of . . . ::
Imagine if The Killers had never scored that major label deal, and instead of going all big budget blustery on their second album had ended up in a rat-infested loft

WINELIGHT DELIGHT
29 January 2008 / The Met / Bury (mcr)
:: Angus Barclay :: Lizzie Nunnery :: Fiona Bevan :: Patsy Matheson ::
An evening that includes various lyrical themes such as addiction and why not of course, prostitution..

AGAINST ALL ODDS
27 January 2008 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: These New Puritans :: British Sea Power :: The Vanguard (mcr) ::
"We're The Vanguard, who the fuck are you?..."

CHRIS THE CONFESSOR
22 January 2008 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: Dashboard Confessional ::
Carraba always comes across as an awkward, nervous character, but maybe that just adds to the appeal

BOTTOMS UP
22 January 2008 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Bottomfeeders ::
When a band take a 2-foot saw onto the stage to use as a musical instrument and there isnít a magician in sight, then something unusual is to be expected

SUNSHINE ON A RAINY DAY
22 January 2008 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Tim And Sam's Tim And The Sam Band With Tim And Sam :: The Windfall :: Jake Flowers ::
Manchester Music sincerely hopes you had a note from your mother. This gig was too good to miss.

ELECTRIC CIRCUS #65
19 January 2008 / The Castle / Oldham
:: The Christophers :: The Fayre :: Bye Bye Johnny ::
Small packages often contain the biggest surprises...

SET THE CONTROLS FOR THE HEART OF THE EARTH
12 January 2008 / Studio - Peter St / Manchester
:: Earthona :: Fort Worth ::
Earthona turn Peter Street into a hazy stoner-rock dreamscape. In space.

KING'S RANSOM
17 January 2008 / Joes / Manchester
:: Frazer King ::
Out of the south side's least glamorous suburb come FRAZER KING - a band, not a bloke...

DUCK SOUP
16 January 2008 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Dead Fluffy Duck :: Ruby Groove :: Sex Radio ::
Loud, blasting stabs of laptop-generated electronica lashed to slicing guitars

BALLOONS GO UP, COURTEENERS DRIVE ON
18 January 2008 / Parr Hall / Warrington
:: Lead Balloons :: The Courteeners ::
The Courteeners appear more than ready for the big year that is undoubtedly ahead of them

UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS
12 January 2008 / Dry Bar / Manchester
:: Vessels :: Laymar :: The Ending Of . . . :: The Sandells :: The Green Half :: Stop The Blackout ::
There seem to be an inordinately large number of drums on stage too, and there are times when it seems pretty much everyone's having a crack at them...

LADIES & GENTLEMEN..WE ARE SHOEGAZING
09 January 2008 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Daniel Land & The Modern Painters :: The Jannocks :: The Unstoppable Team ::
Early January always throws up some strange and fascinating bills at places like the Roadhouse

JANUARY BLUES
08 January 2008 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Grand Volume :: Ian Britt :: BoneBox :: Ryna ::
After the New Year excess, a January come down requires one to gently break themselves back into the gig world...
