< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For November, 2006

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

RED HAND GANG
29 November 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Blood Arm :: Pull Tiger Tail ::
The room erupts into a chorus of ‘Happy Birthday’, a cake is then delivered on stage and I half expect a stripper to jump out

REVVED UP
30 November 2006 / The Castle / Oldham
:: The Second Floor :: Jonny Brown Shoes :: The Naughtys ::
After a successful stint alongside Terry Christian at GMR, Conrad continues championing the unsigned at ace local radio station The Revolution

LEXICON OF LOVE
29 November 2006 / Academy 1 / Manchester
:: Aberfeldy :: Paolo Nutini ::
Just because something happened two years ago, it doesn’t mean that it’s not captivating and worthy of attention right here, right now

WIND IN THE WILLOWS
30 November 2006 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Tycoons Follies :: Juno Ashes :: The People Involved ::
Just one thing though - singers: do not burp near the mic when introducing a song. Ever.

GORILLA WARFARE
30 November 2006 / Satan's Hollow / Manchester
:: Kong :: These Arms Are Snakes ::
If you're named after a super-size fictional gorilla you'd better sound pretty fucking massive.

WARP SPEED
24 November 2006 / The Warehouse Project / Manchester
:: Autechre :: LFO :: Massonix ::
The chance to check out a couple of big hitters from the superb Warp label takes me back to the Warehouse Project for just the 2nd time, curious and expecting a late one.

DANCIN SHOES ON!
23 November 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Wombats :: Good Shoes :: Xerox Teens ::
All these factors together to create a sound that simultaneously tips it's hat to the past whilst sounding utterly 'now'

INSTRUMENTAL
24 November 2006 / The Arena / Manchester
:: Tool ::
Who would have thought, a few years ago, that Tool would be filling somewhere as large as the Arena?

DIFF'RENT STROKES
25 November 2006 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Albert Hammond, Jr. :: The Pierces ::
The reception given to Albert Hammond Jr as he cheerfully strides into view, must have made him think that he is flanked by Casablancas and co

DOUBLE VISION
24 November 2006 / The Castle / Oldham
:: The Amber Club :: doublejoHngrey ::
Doublejo(h)ngrey are unpleasant in the best possible way

TOUR OF DUTY
23 November 2006 / Dry Bar / Manchester
:: The Ending Of . . . :: Duty Now ::
Don't blink, because you really don't want to miss them

BEHIND THE VEILS
21 November 2006 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: The Veils :: New Rhodes ::
Somewhere in Bristol New Rhodes set out to challenge the city's trip-hop hegemony with their sparkling brand of indie pop

SULTANA-PUDDING EYES
14 November 2006 / Academy 1 / Manchester
:: Ben Kweller :: Josh Pyke ::
Kweller brings the New York summers with their humid, lazy days sleeping away the city in sunbleached parks and their booting of soccer balls with scruffy friends

SOMEBODY TOLD ME
20 November 2006 / Apollo / Manchester
:: The Killers :: Brakes ::
Every single voice in the place is shouting along to "I've got soul but I'm not a soldier" - regardless of the fact that it still doesn't actually appear to mean anything

REDEMPTION - AS IF IT'S NEEDED
17 November 2006 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: The Nightjars :: Fear Of Music ::
Forget blah blah blah! This is just a full-on dirty rock'n'roll set

WINGING BACK
17 November 2006 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Jody Wild Goose :: Babybird ::
Musical ornithologists of the world unite as the battered indie survivor gains flight..

INTO THE BLACK
13 November 2006 / Star and Garter / Manchester
:: The Musa House Band :: Rotary Ten :: iDresden :: Amida ::
Into The Black. An appropriate name for a new night at The Star and Garter

(M)TV(2) STARS
09 November 2006 / Academy 1 / Manchester
:: Wolfmother :: Fields :: Maccabees :: ¡Forward, Russia! ::
They're on outstanding form despite (or possibly because of) this being about their millionth gig of the year

ENJOYING REHAB
10 November 2006 / The Academy (University Guild Building) / Liverpool
:: Amy Winehouse ::
“I Hate Amy Winehouse”

BEWARE! BIRD ATTACK !
08 November 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Hedrons ::
The birds are flying high tonight

TV STARS
09 November 2006 / Club Academy (Academy 4) / Manchester
:: TV On The Radio :: White City Crime Club ::
Intermittently as vital and sublime as rock n' roll gets

THE REEL DEAL?
07 November 2006 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Tapes n’ Tapes :: Neon Hearts ::
Surfing a current wobbly-throated scratchy guitar zeitgeist

ORANGE COUNTY
05 November 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Two Gallants ::
“Thanks”, nods Adam, looking wounded and withdrawn, so affected is he by their own harsh power and red blaze. “We have to leave now.”

SUPERMASSIVE
10 November 2006 / The Arena / Manchester
:: The Noisettes :: Muse ::
Spectacularly splendid camp and deliberately overblown moments sit alongside legendary rock band sounds

MADE TO MEASURE
01 November 2006 / Club Academy (Academy 4) / Manchester
:: Metric :: Hadouken ::
....much more than fortunate scenesters with friends in currently cool places

THE DAY AFTER
01 November 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Napoleon IIIrd :: The Star Fighter Pilot ::
Two masters of wayward electronic pop face the toughest challenge of all - a gig in Manchester the night after In The City's finished.

ALL NIGHT INDIE WAREHOUSE PARTY
02 November 2006 / The Warehouse Project / Manchester
:: Brakes :: The Long Blondes :: The Longcut ::
Continual references to "the workers" on the big screens are more than slightly at odds with the knowledge that not too many months ago a large number of workers lost their jobs here. Still, The Longcut play a new tune and it's brilliant. But very cold.

NEVER MIND THE FIREWORKS
05 November 2006 / Apollo / Manchester
:: Motorhead ::
“We are Motorhead and we play rock’n’roll!” announces Lemmy, as he probably does at every gig, then it’s all systems go.
