< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For November, 2003

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

WINTER IN THE CITY
30 November 2003 / Sofa / Manchester
:: Amigo :: Marlin :: 13 Amp :: Parma Violets ::
Four of Manchester’s brightest and intriguing bands really raised the bar

STRENGTH THROUGH JOY
28 November 2003 / The BierKeller / Manchester
:: The Weakerthans ::
The Weakerthans stand for naked emotions with a talent to expose themselves through music, which you can’t fail to understand

IN GOD WE TRUST
14 November 2003 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Cheddleton :: Forty Seconds ::
In a world where much of the youth pop-punk scene is dominated by songs of teenage heartbreak, this approach makes for a surprisingly welcome change

INDULGENT POMP ART
22 November 2003 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: My Morning Jacket :: South San Gabriel ::
Visitors from across the Atlantic are like buses. You wait ages for one and then three turn up at once

SILENT SCREAMS
27 November 2003 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: Mark Lanegan ::
As he whispers ‘I’ll take care of you’ into your ear he takes you along with him, to that far off place, moving you along on the warm and dusty breeze of his voice

GOING UNDERGROUND
15 November 2003 / Secret Venue / Manchester
:: Burnst :: The Green Acre ::
Characteristic of uncertain, postmodern times their long-burning soundscapes constantly shift and evolve through all manner of esoteric and open-ended moods

DOWN IN THE PARK
21 November 2003 / The Arena / Manchester
:: Linkin Park :: Kinesis :: Lost Prophets ::
Another superb performance and proved that even though they can be criminally mistaken for kiddy cheese, they know how to rock out a arena.

TO CUT A LONG STORY SHORT
21 November 2003 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Former Miss America :: Le Neon :: Silva Surfa ::
The world is once again safe for analogue, oversized blooping bass, 808 beats and deadpan vocals

ALL ABOARD
13 November 2003 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: The Mars Volta ::
Willingly board the new ship Volta for a turbulent ride across mysterious waters

PLUG INTO THE MUSCLE MACHINE
30 November 2003 / The Arena / Manchester
:: Muse :: Kinesis :: Elbow ::
An impressive back catalogue surpassed only by their live delivery, all confirmed by the satisfied, entertained glow I took home with me that night.

THE ELECTRIC CIRCUS #4 - LEEDS
27 November 2003 / The Vine / Leeds
:: The Scaramanga Six :: The Obsession :: Palo Alto ::
I left the venue 90 minutes ago and my ears are STILL ringing...

SPARKS FLY AT THE ELECTRIC CIRCUS
13 November 2003 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Flow :: (hooker) :: Broadzilla :: Seed ::
Only one band memeber can legally drive, have sex and buy cigarettes and fireworks

ON THE RAILS
20 November 2003 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Skid Row ::
Before Skid Row came on stage I realistically expected to see a former shadow of the band but when you watch them play classics such as ’18 and a life’ more then 10 years after it made its release, the freshness just overrides the presumption

CHAS AND DAVE ?
17 November 2003 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Fights :: Martha :: Go-Rimbaud ::
Go-Rimbaud command their madcap sounds with a paradoxically firm grip

DIRTY DOZEN
02 November 2003 / Jabez Clegg / Manchester
:: Anunaki :: Karma Destination :: The Edmund Fitzgerald :: Indra :: Palo Alto :: Youth Movie Soundtrack Strategies :: Underglo :: Purgatory State ::
Six hours of the flashing lights of Jabez Clegg can induce epilepsy

THIS IS THE END
12 November 2003 / Mumbo Arts Centre / Manchester
:: The Green Acre :: The Wow :: Cat On Form ::
In the progressive world of post/avant-rock, complexity or spurious simplicity reign together with arcane sensibilities. Andy, Glenn and Ritch, nee The Green Acre take the former and take it near ludicrous extremes

FROM THE EMBERS . . . . COMES A FLAME
01 November 2003 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Sikth :: Hondo Maclean ::
Sikth know their place and stick to it as recent singles pierce you eardrums and head straight for your gut

BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE
04 November 2003 / Band On The Wall / Manchester
:: Chicks On Speed :: Club Suicide ::
Fashion is a fickle mistress. But for a Chicks on Speed audience she’s a mistress who must be obeyed

INCUBATION
11 November 2003 / Star and Garter / Manchester
:: The Influence :: Mitosis :: Level Change :: Samsura :: Idiosyncrasy ::
“Everyone has to start somewhere,” reads a sign on the wall

IN SHREDS
07 November 2003 / Academy 1 / Manchester
:: Dashboard Confessional ::
If Blink 182 became emo with an emotive pit for a stomach and believed what they created helped stop world famine this is who they’d be

BILLYS BIG TOP TALENT
02 November 2003 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Billy Talent :: The Holiday Plan ::
Guitars have been set to use one hundred and ten percent of their brute force, and vocals have become somewhat of a tool, merely to release pent up howls

POT OF GOLD
05 November 2003 / The Pint Pot / Salford
:: Fallen Origin ::
Beautifully crafted vocals without a pause for breath, choruses a plenty and a tightly knitted sound give this band a grand exit
