Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998
FROM LEVY TO A MULE
06 February 2002 / Big Hands / Manchester
:: Gecko Levy ::
It’s Wednesday – not the deadzone shifts of Monday or Tuesday – but midweek – halfway there – just a short stretch to the weekend.
The mission, is to spread the word, investigate, report and savour a midweek mancunian feast of live music
ARE YOU LOADED ?
06 February 2002 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Loaded Club Night ::
The mission, is to spread the word, investigate, report and savour a midweek mancunian feast of live music.
08 February 2002 / Liverpool University / Liverpool
:: Oceansize :: The Cooper Temple Clause ::
The Cooper Temple Clause have big spikey gel influenced hair – think Angel meets A1 – but it’s a bit more meaningful than that. It’s a good crowd at the Uni (Liverpool that is). The kids are at the front – gig virgins to a one.
12 February 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Transelement ::
Served on a bed of melancholic drones, oscillating falsetto harmonies are delivered straight-faced and with clear intent
GUITARS IN BARS
13 February 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Fiji Daze :: European :: Dekoder ::
Three bands try to prove who's best and there's definitely one clear winner - which all goes to show that rehearsals don't count and treading the boards does
HEARTS ON SLEEVE STOMACH IN MOUTH
16 February 2002 / Leadmill / Sheffield
:: Moco :: Hoggboy ::
Tonight at the Leadmill, both rooms are used, with the next group striking up their first chord as the dying throws of the last band splutter through the p.a.(s)
INDIE ?- NO : PUNK ? NO ? ROCK ? - WHO CARES...
19 February 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Tsuji Giri :: The Flow ::
In a word, intense, in two words, mind expanding - I could go on - lets leave it at "Go See" - together with a new gaggle of alt., indie, rock and electro bands, there's a new wave coming through
CAPTURE THE FUTURE IN THE BUTTERFLY NET OF AMBITION
20 February 2002 / Life Cafe (now see Studio / Chicago Rock) / Manchester
:: Ben & Jason ::
There is always a time for the simple things in life, isn’t there? A time in every day to notice the subtleties that embellish the very environment you take for granted and every simple stride you take in your daily routine
THEY CAME THEY SAW AND RAN OFF WITH THE SPOILS
27 February 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Ithaca :: Earl :: Fatshaft ::
this one leapt out of the listings page not least for the recognisable promise of the well established Ithaca and the dubiously titled Fat Shaft (a golfing reference surely?) but the addition of the all girl power trio, Earl.
