< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For March, 2003

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

SHORT SIGHTED
30 March 2003 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: 22-20s ::
Influences of late 60's guitar psychedelia are seemingly present, and when it's mixed with some blues type guitar work, hope prevails

LET THERE BE LIGHT
28 March 2003 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: The Darkness ::
He plays with his hair and pouts like the dingy venue was a Milan catwalk in between taking his fingers for a walk up and down the fretboard and squealing into his microphone in a voice that cannot be faulted for it’s unbelievable range

THE GREAT WHITE CHOCOLATE DEBATE: HEAT 1
26 March 2003 / Jabez Clegg / Manchester
:: Made In China :: The Remote Control :: Extinguish Her :: Narcissus :: Pink Fluffy Cloud Machine ::
Any prospect of another aural haemorrhage was soon clotted

SHOT IN THE DARK
25 March 2003 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: Ladytron ::
Ladytron once bounded on stage to the pounding proto-metal of Black Sabbath’s Paranoid. It didn’t work. First singer/keyboardist Mira Aroyo tripped over the monitors. Then the rest of the band fell over her.

OVER THE BORDER
22 March 2003 / The Boardwalk / Sheffield
:: Puressence :: Aziz ::
Starting off with "Near Distance" which still sends a shiver down a lot of peoples' spines, they pull the finest moments from all three albums

EVERLASTING FOR A SHORT WHILE
21 March 2003 / Star and Garter / Manchester
:: then came music ::
there's nothing like ten minutes of seeing six talented young lads throwing everything they have into making an exhilarating sound to remind you of the point of it all

GIVE ME ANTIHISTAMINES
19 March 2003 / 42nd Street / Manchester
:: Monomania ::
So as troops descended on Iraq for the start of a war that could change the face of the world, it's kind of reasuring to know some things haven't changed

CHEESE TRANSCENDS
12 March 2003 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: Dirty Vegas ::
Dirty Vegas have made some attempt to straddle stylistic boundaries though exploration of either side of the fence seems rather shallow

I LOVE ANIME
21 March 2003 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: The Mad Capsule Markets ::
“Manc-Hest-Arrr!!! We Have Crazy Time!!! Let Me Hear You Scream!!!”

MAGIC MAYHEM
23 March 2003 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Jetplane Landing :: Biffy Clyro ::
When the final cheers ring out, its as much for the crowd as it is for their mentors for the evening, Biffy Clyro. Magical.

BUCKING A STYLE
10 March 2003 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: The Kills ::
Everyone it seems wants a piece of The Kills - but they are not just another garage rock band looking to make a fast buck on the style bandwagon

YOUNG, GREEN - AND GIFTED ?
13 March 2003 / The Palace, Levenshulme / Manchester
:: Saucerman :: The Base :: PTA (Psychotic Tree Ambush) :: Jawless :: Caleb Storkey :: Daylight Rule ::
The sound of Oasis (obtained itself by a pair of confidence tricksters targeting pensioners) clearly in evidence

MANCHESTER CALLING: 16 SONGS FOR JOE STRUMMER
09 March 2003 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: I Win I Drive :: Sonic Boom Six :: Performance :: Saucerman :: The Snakes :: Lord Mongo :: Moco :: Slam :: TVH-3 :: BoneBox :: El Presidente :: Bad Man Wagon :: Ian Britt ::
With daylight still streaming through the windows of that local sauna known as the Night & Day café, faithful versions of "Clampdown" and "Clash City Rockers" open the gates (of the west) on tonights cashbah rock

VELVETEEN SUAVE
10 March 2003 / Guildhall / Preston
:: Brian Ferry ::
OMIGODitsBRYANandicantbelieveimevenhere....

REMOTE SANITY
05 March 2003 / Lux Bar / Wigan
:: Remote :: Stephen Jones ( Bizarro Adult Nappies & Moco) ::
The scrawny nappy wearing Mr Jones takes to the stage, alongside a band playing a variety of children’s instruments..
