Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

HITCHIN' A RIDE
22 February 2006 / Academy 1 / Manchester
:: Clayhill :: Beth Orton ::
Beth Orton has always been an enigma wrapped in a riddle

SHOOTING CHENEY
22 February 2006 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: Coldcut ::
Something pretty special to coax such a number of Ninja Tune geeks, the most intriguing of geeks, out of their warm little scratch holes

BIG BRUVVAS
23 February 2006 / Academy 1 / Manchester
:: Goldie Lookin Chain :: Killa Kella ::
“I’ve got more rhymes than Kate Moss has done lines....”

PROG & BUCKET
24 February 2006 / The Castle / Oldham
:: doublejoHngrey :: Duty Now ::
Thinly threaded, wiry guitars cut and slash against each other, to a backbeat that’s as fluid as oil on water

JOIN THE CLUB
23 February 2006 / The Music Box / Manchester
:: The KBC ::
The KBC stir something of a teenage frenzy as they enter, tool up, and boom into their opener

FURY.FIRE.BOMBS
15 February 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Lucida Console :: ¡Forward, Russia! :: Whores! Whores! Whores! ::
The Russians tear various portions of the hemisphere to pieces with their silver claws of bleeding guitars

STEALING FROM LE BONS WARDROBE
23 February 2006 / Dry Bar / Manchester
:: YSN :: The Children ::
Well we seem to have rid the room of the scruffs – only the well-dressed people are left...

MAKE UP TO BREAK UP
20 February 2006 / The Music Box / Manchester
:: Reverend Coyote :: The Tommys ::
When a massive PA speaker hurls itself headlong off the top of the stack, their roadie almost shits himself, but the girls don’t miss a beat

ANTI-FOLK CONVENTIONS
17 February 2006 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: Giant Drag :: The Cribs :: Jeffrey Lewis ::
Biting lovelorn displays of awareness and defiance.

DON'T GO BACK TO 'FRISCO
19 February 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Two Gallants ::
Two Gallants have one or two things in their 'to do' pile, above bumming around in a Prestwich bedsit

LAST NIGHT
16 February 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Liam Frost :: Cherry Ghost :: Fear Of Music ::
With his slept-in suit and hair he looks for all the world like Guy Garvey’s even wilder younger brother

HEARTS AND MINDS
14 February 2006 / Star and Garter / Manchester
:: Behind Green Lights :: The Remote Control :: One Man And His Beard ::
An indeterminately middle-aged man in dark glasses who was probably stood behind you last night

THERE'S GOLD IN THEM THAR ...SUBURBS
11 February 2006 / Klondyke Club / Manchester
:: Garron Frith :: Danny George Wilson :: Neil Casal ::
An acoustic feast with fragments of various guitar parts delicately interwoven together

SMOKING GUN
17 February 2006 / Life Cafe (now see Studio / Chicago Rock) / Manchester
:: Gabrielle's Wish :: Bobbie Peru :: Sunday International ::
This lot avoid musical categorisation almost like a car swerving around an errant cat

SOUL TRAIN
09 February 2006 / Star and Garter / Manchester
:: Orphan Boy :: Lucky Soul ::
Only the most cold hearted could not have failed to have been moved

RABBIT IN THE HEADLINES
11 February 2006 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Jenny Lewis :: Johnathan Rice ::
I’ve got a graveyard head and a tombstone mind

I SWEAR I WAS THERE
12 February 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Happy Fucking Birthday :: Cinematics ::
Swearing – “it’s not big and it’s not clever you know”. No, but in the right context it’s very fucking funny.

BLOWOUT BREAKOUT
10 February 2006 / The BierKeller / Manchester
:: Daywalkers :: Little Man Tate :: The Tides :: The V.C S ::
“I’ve got peoples’ hair in my mouth and someone’s nicked the set-list”

A PUB IN CENTRAL MANCHESTER PAYS TRIBUTE TO BRYAN GLANCY
03 February 2006 / Secret Venue / Manchester
::
“I just wanted to say goodbye in a place we drank”

NAKED AMBITION
05 February 2006 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: José González ::
Some want to appreciate in awed silence, some sing along and clap whilst others seem more concerned with shouting at González to ‘turn it up!’

KNOW YOUR NME
05 February 2006 / Academy 1 / Manchester
:: Arctic Monkeys :: Mystery Jets :: Maximo Park :: We Are Scientists ::
Keith addresses the crowd one last time before leaving – “Arctic Monkeys will make you shit yourself - enjoy it!”

POWER MESSING
08 February 2006 / The Music Box / Manchester
:: This Ain't Vegas :: Julian Donkey-Boy :: Hot Club de Paris :: The Search Map ::
Barbershop intros are quickly followed by refrains of “I like to fuck anything that moves”

DANCING BETWEEN THE GUITAR RACKS
03 February 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Logicals ::
..Most of the dancing ladies are in fact girlfriends of the band members

MELTED FROST
02 February 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: (Nick Ainsworth and) The Former Bullies :: Liam Frost :: Maple State ::
Frost can afford a smile and a swagger as he comes on stage, looking relaxed and at home (or pissed as he puts it)

BELIEVE IN THIS
03 February 2006 / Club Academy (Academy 4) / Manchester
:: Belief System :: The Naughtys ::
The latest band to emerge from the seemingly never-ending stream of musical talent in North Manchester, Belief System have swooping rich vocals, icy keyboards and brilliant tunes. One to watch, as they say.
