THIS END
28 November 2007 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Electrelane ::
Even shouts of “Come back, don’t ever go, we love you” don’t deter them...

ARE FRIENDS ELECTRIC ?
30 November 2007 / The Castle / Oldham

A raft of refined, orchestrated movements punctuated by lightening bolts of guitars which shriek like lost children singing ghostly Radiohead songs

A POSTCARD TO SALFORD
27 November 2007 / Sacred Trinity Church / Salford
:: Magic Arm :: Neil Burrell :: Jens Lekman ::
Sacred Trinity Church is beautiful. It’s intimately majestic, creepily gothic and has that really nice floral, musty church smell

OOMPA LOOMPA POST ROCK
30 November 2007 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Efterklang ::
One of very few contemporary acts you would describe as genuinely hypnotic

EVERYTHING’S GONE GREEN
24 November 2007 / The Green Room / Manchester
:: Transistors :: Caro Snatch :: Peterloo Massacre :: RAW Beat poets ::
With the line “Let the cheese begin”, the organs generate the swirling sounds that could accompany a Christopher Lee horror movie

A CITY EXPOSITION FOR THE COUNTRY FAIR
25 November 2007 / Urbis / Manchester
:: Stars Of The Lid :: Xela ::
The artificial and organic collide in unusual ways that make them near indistinguishable

DARK STARS
26 November 2007 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: I Am Kloot ::
A bit like certain religious festivals, I Am Kloot's three-day Manchester residency is a vaguely annual affair

COLOURING OUTSIDE THE LINES
27 November 2007 / Trof (Northern Quarter) / Manchester
:: Petty Thief :: Ernies Rhythm Section ::
Trof NQ finds out what would happen if Tony Hart organised gigs…

MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY
26 November 2007 / Ruby Lounge / Manchester
:: Liz Green :: Laymar :: My Way My Love :: Honkey Finger ::
I somehow just don’t think we’ve heard the last of this band, commuting distances considered or not

ORBITAL
24 November 2007 / Kings Arms / Salford
:: The Lightshines :: Laboratory Noise :: Insect Guide ::
Ladies and gentlemen, we are floating in Salford...

CRUMBS
23 November 2007 / Tower Lounge / Blackpool
:: Half Man Half Biscuit ::
Do the phrases "Who the fucking hell are Slipknot?", "You're going on after Crispy Ambulance!" and "You only busk when it's Christmas!" mean anything to you?

AFTERSHOW + FRIENDS
22 November 2007 / Sankey's / Manchester
:: Moco :: Fear Of Music :: George Agan :: Lead Balloons :: Twilight Robin :: Mr Fang ::
Steve is suddenly possessed by his younger self, lurching into the crowd with his rubber Cossack legs for a bit of a mosh and some press-ups

PORNO STARS
20 November 2007 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: The New Pornographers :: It Hugs Back ::
This is simply a great band. Arguably the best in the world right now...

LATE AUTUMN LULLABIES
12 November 2007 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Eva Petersen :: Table :: Beach House ::
Sleigh bells and slide guitar soothe in waltzes, and the organ spirals sound like a lonely circus

GRRRLY DANCE

Hedge join forces with the Redbricks team to bring the heart of modern folk to Whalley Range

PINK LADY LOVE
10 November 2007 / Urbis / Manchester

Coming on stage with neat grey beards, wild hear and gigantic stripy flairs, what follows is two hours of near perfection

MAY I HAVE SOME MORE PLEASE..
13 November 2007 / The Met / Bury (mcr)
:: Robert Brown :: The Steals :: Juliana Meyer :: Andrea Glass ::
I was sat amongst a number of people sat stuffing their faces with Chicken Dinners and pasta. And I was hungry.

SIX SHORT OF BEASTLY
10 November 2007 / The Lounge / Warrington
:: The 66 ::
There’s been some recent criticism of the people of Warrington for failing to support a mediocre football team – maybe they should turn their attentions to rock and roll

RAGGED GLORY
06 November 2007 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Kelley Stoltz :: Two Gallants :: Blitzen Trapper ::
Great ragged drinking anthems these, still, and increasingly of greater scope and power

OUT TO LUNCH
14 November 2007 / Soup Kitchen / Manchester
:: Applicants ::
Tight, intelligent and stuffed with enough ideas to boom through a big P.A

X RATED
14 November 2007 / Night & Day / Manchester

The Xcerts are exciting, energetic and impassioned by their youth

BRIMSTONE FIRE & STEAM
14 November 2007 / The Roadhouse / Manchester

FRENCH POLISHING
11 November 2007 / Ruby Lounge / Manchester
:: Denis Jones :: Magic Arm :: Babyslave :: Murmurs of Tension :: Cara Snatch & D. J. Shirokuma :: S. R. Gents ::

YOOF YOOF YOOF
07 November 2007 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: Palmstruck :: Youthmovies :: 65 Days Of Static :: Tired Irie ::
How the hell did 65daysofstatic get big enough to be playing Academy 2? God only knows, but it's a rather wonderful thing that they did

FIREWORKS!

:: Animal Collective ::
If Animal Collective were a taste, then it would be rainbow

:: Petty Thief :: Slim Francis ::
FictionNonFiction chill...sort of..

PINK EXPLOSION
07 November 2007 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Cutting Pink With Knives ::
It sounds as though they’ve lapped a couple of albums during their set

CIRCLE OF LIFE
05 November 2007 / The Circle Club / Manchester
:: Will Tang ::
The launch of Will Tang’s debut solo album takes this MM writer to new habitats, and shows the world a thing or two about harmonica

ALL BOXED UP
04 November 2007 / Club Academy (Academy 4) / Manchester
:: The National ::
Describing a band in two words is difficult. But in The National's case, two words will do
