< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For January, 2012

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

A CALL TO ARMS
28 January 2012 / Kings Arms / Salford
:: Air Cav :: The Lightshines :: The 000 to Nowhere Band ::
2012 will prove a big year for Air Cav in so many ways. They have proved themselves musically; now they must spread the word from town to town. And this journey begins on a freezing night in Salford...

NEW YEARS
31 January 2012 / Kraak / Manchester
:: Advances In Mathematics :: The Early Years ::
The Early Years disappeared from view for about four years, but now they're back - maybe they were just waiting for everyone else to catch up...

WHERE TWO FAST RIVERS MEET
28 January 2012 / Gullivers / Manchester
:: Section 25 :: AAAK [As Able As Kane] ::
Section 25 prove their deserved place within the Factory history books with a fresh new performance...

SUNDAY SUPPLEMENT
29 January 2012 / Islington Mill / Salford
:: Songs For Walter :: New Hips :: Nat Baldwin ::
We spend Sunday afternoon in Islington Mill because it's better than telly. A man with a double-bass gets on stage, introduces himself, thanks the supports... so there's really just him and that? Intriguing...

ANTISEPTIC VICE
24 January 2012 / The Deaf Institute / Manchester
:: Clockwork Radio :: Foreign Hands ::
A sound that works like the Eurostar train picking up passengers at stops on this side of Dover before travelling along at dizzying speeds on the continent

TWO STROKE
26 January 2012 / Gullivers / Manchester
:: Salford Media City ::
Another essential night out where lyrical references to lizards and Vimto are accompanied by three chord wig outs...

PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE
21 January 2012 / Gullivers / Manchester
:: Womb :: Rats On Rafts :: Minny Pops ::
This is a reunion without the baggage and lowest common denominator expectation that drags so many down; if anything, Minny Pops sound as simultaneously contemporary and timelessly out there as they probably did first time round.

EMOTIONAL PUNCH
23 January 2012 / Band On The Wall / Manchester
:: The Louche FC :: New Hips :: Daniel Land and Oisín Scarlett ::
New Manchester Review is the first in a series of monthly showcases at the BOTW and despite it being a cold, frosty and biting night it's an inspiring turnout for the opening show...

COAST IS CLEAR
20 January 2012 / The Barfly / London
:: The Domino State :: Daniel Land And The Modern Painters :: SPC ECO ::
Guitar music is out partying with us, matching us drink-for-drink and laughing at us as we fall into our taxi at the end of the night

NO WOMB AT THE KRAAK INN
06 January 2012 / Kraak / Manchester
:: Corpsekisser :: Maria & The Mirrors :: No Womb ::
Memories of Christmas are receding fast but some people still appear to be playing with their toys

WHAT YEAR IS IT AGAIN?
19 January 2012 / The Castle (Oldham St) / Manchester
:: Mount Fabric :: Binary ::
Four young men dressed head to foot in black with guitars and a kind of Chameleons meets early U2 sound - if this was 2002 our Britpop-exhausted ears would be pricking up with excitement. Unfortunately it's not.

THREE FOR TWO
18 January 2012 / The Castle (Oldham St) / Manchester
:: Projectionists :: The Steals :: Lucille ::
Wotgodforgot goes back to its roots with this excellent little backroom gig, where two quid entry bought an audience with three diverse talents.

A GUITAR AND A HEART... BUT NO SAXOPHONE
18 January 2012 / The Ritz / Manchester
:: M83 :: Porcelain Raft ::
After years as the preserve of assorted electro fans, shoegazers and Francophiles the arch pop of Anthony Gonzalez is filtering through into the mainstream - sadly, on this occasion, via a less than flattering sound mix.

THE FUTURE'S BROWN
14 January 2012 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Brown Brogues :: Great Waves ::
The future looks bright for the Underachievers Please Try Harder promoters whose nomadic wandering has led them to the Roadhouse. If a capacity crowd is anything to go by, it will be there for a good while to come.

STROKE OF LUCK
12 January 2012 / Gullivers / Manchester
:: The Blimp ::
The carpets and curtains hail from another era and probably have more history trodden into them than any other Mancunian musical landmark
