< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For January, 2010

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

BRIT POP SHINES
22 January 2010 / Shepherds Bush Empire / London
:: Brett Anderson ::
Anderson,42, is still dazzling to look at, in a sunken-cheeked Man Who Fell To Earth kind of way >>

HALCYON DAZE
29 January 2010 / Islington Mill / Salford
:: Delphic :: May 68 ::
With their debut album riding high in the charts, Manchester's official next big thing prove they're more than worthy of the accolade.

FRIENDS OF MANCHESTER FESTIVAL (NIGHT)
30 January 2010 / Kro and Jabez Clegg / Manchester
:: Jo Rose :: The Black Knights :: exLovers :: Young British Artists :: Vagner Love :: No Tokyo :: The Answering Machine :: The Psycho :: Zacc Rogers :: The Paris Riots :: Yucatan ::
Country, indie, Welsh language dreampop, acoustic blues, noisy electric blues and a 2am love-in: MM somehow makes it to the end of Friends Of Manchester and congratulates them on a brilliant day's live music.

FRIENDS OF MANCHESTER FESTIVAL (AFTERNOON)
30 January 2010 / Kro and Jabez Clegg / Manchester
:: Optional Wallace :: PLANK! :: Kin :: Standard Fare :: I Am Austin :: Uncle Meat And The Highway Children :: DiscoKidz :: Hyacinth Girl :: New Street Adventure :: Gasoline Alley (Murph) ::
70 bands across six stages in two venues over 14 hours, we feel like kids in a sweet shop. here's what we managed to guzzle before tea time...

NEVER MIND THE BARRACKS
27 January 2010 / Retro Bar / Manchester
:: Cyril Snear :: Arficeden :: From The Kites Of San Quentin :: Box ::
Dingo Barracks bring us a chance to catch up with some regular favourites of the local experimental / post-rock scene - alongside another entry for our favourite new bands of 2010 list.

SUPPLY AND DEMAND
23 January 2010 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Audio Supply :: Orcas Blitz :: Lionface Is Dead :: Boss Mosquito ::
Suddenly 2010 is looking like a very exciting year for Mancunian electronica...

NO RETRO FOR TOTO
22 January 2010 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Run Toto Run :: The Zetlands ::
One of our tips for 2010, Run Toto Run start the year with a melodica, a megaphone, three lightsabres and a set so new they haven't actually played about half the songs before...

RISE OF THE FALLEN
23 January 2010 / Northern Lawn Tennis Club, Didsbury / Manchester
:: Factory Star :: Pearl Divers ::
They survived stints in the Fall and lived to tell the tale: MM takes what we suspect is our first ever trip to a tennis club to catch up with Mike Leigh (no, not the film director) and the Hanley brothers.

GREAT SOUNDS FROM START TO FINNISH
20 January 2010 / Ruby Lounge / Manchester
:: Joensuu 1685 :: Barberos :: Advances In Mathematics :: Asleep Beneath Volcanoes ::
A classic Wotgodforgot with four excellent and complementing bands: one local, one from Cumbria, one international and possibly from outer space.

A MATCH MADE IN HELL
19 January 2010 / Ruby Lounge / Manchester
:: Kong :: Future Of The Left ::
No, not the Carling Cup Manchester derby match, although granted one team here is wearing red. The city centre streets are quiet tonight in favour of the action at Eastlands, but down in Ruby Lounge there's an almighty racket going on...

WEIRDO LO-FI POP
18 January 2010 / Retro Bar / Manchester
:: Bird Names :: Crooked Rooks :: Sick Lillys ::
The basement smells a bit mouldy and the crowd is a little selective, but as ever Wotgodforgot are intent on bringing the world's strangest bands to our city.

RAILING AGAINST THE MAINSTREAM
15 January 2010 / The Britons Protection / Manchester
:: Graham Dunning :: SNDSUKINSPOOK :: Pesticide Organica, Fonik and Noise Research ::
...Beyond this is something else, where sound becomes less music in the conventional sense of melody with rhythm than art installation: MM takes a trip to Manchester's most abstract live session.

STEALING HEARTS
14 January 2010 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: The Steals :: Those Little Anodynes :: Fables ::
With a stunning vocalist and a sort of shoegaze all- stars backing band, The Steals are definitely ones to watch in 2010 - but there's some decidedly strange supports to get through first...

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
12 January 2010 / Tiger Lounge / Manchester
:: Mr Heart :: The Bent Moustache :: Kin :: Boz Hayward ::
FictionNonFiction may have departed but Tiger Lounge is still the place to experience Manchester's true underground - and indeed Holland's, as an old Manchester alternative scene face returns. Not that we get to see much of said face...

HOW MANY BOYFRIENDS?
09 January 2010 / Saki Bar / Manchester
:: This Many Boyfriends ::
The melted snow has formed pools of water on the floor and jackets are still required inside, but Saki is packed with people ignoring the outside chill...
