Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

MIDWEEK CUCKOOS OR FUTURE ROCK STARS ?
03 April 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Delta Nine :: Ransom ::
Midweek at Night & Day brings you as much a varied bag as you'll get at the other venues. Tuesday / Wednesday seem to be indie / new hopefuls nights and to be honest, you'll get a better view of what's coming up

EXTRA HARD ROCK (& ROLL) @ THE CAFE
08 April 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Q-Car :: TVH-3 :: August ::
The last note is interrupted by a snap through the p.a. as the Bass is hurled 30 feet into the air and off the stage, where it clatters into the venue floor. There it lies, discarded as the band have disappeared. Something just happened. I don't know wha

MINUS MONEY GRABBING TALENT (AGAIN!)
09 April 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Bernard :: [Missed Her Bliss] :: Testrack :: Minus Money Live ::
All in all a pretty top notch night although I do feel that leaving early to get the bus meant that I have probably missed most of the turntable inspired final hours of debauchery that is normally associated with the nights, but I'm sure someone else will

EXPECT THE IMPOSSIBLE BUT DONT EXPECT NU METAL
12 April 2002 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Jobe ::
With the convenience and power of a multi-use power tool even the worst of carpenters can knock up a pretty decent Welsh dresser - Jobe find that the tools supplied more than meet their requirements

SHOW US YOUR KNICKERS...
12 April 2002 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Flawed ::
Flaweds first slot on a Friday night didnít faze the lads at all. This was heart, soul and a lot of chug!

BLAME THE PARENTS - WE DID
14 April 2002 / Retro Bar / Manchester
:: doublejoHngrey :: Valerie ::
A late sesh on the Lords day and its pretty unholy at that

ELECTRO ECLECTIC EVENT HITS SALFORD
16 April 2002 / The Lowry Theatre / Salford
:: Ithaca :: Tribeca :: My Mate Mark :: URBANITE.OUT 3 ::
A magnificent room in a bizarre location that's halfway between the feel of the London Docklands and a possible riot zone. Salford, as important a City as Manchester, yet always in its shadow, at last has a glimmer of regeneration and confidence in its ab

CAPITAL BROTHERHOOD
19 April 2002 / The Metro, Oxford Street / London
:: BoneBox ::
Low slung and laid back - slowly and sneakingly building into some deep fried rockíníroll fury. A glorious mix of wailing mariachi trumpet, snaky C&W steel guitar, shuffling rhythms and rattlesnake percussion. Think Gomez with the indie bumfluff brutally

FLYS AT THE BAR
19 April 2002 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Barfly ::
To be satisfied by a traditional four or five-piece band, playing a simple brand of three-minute rock coupled with a pure, pop accessibility seems to be a frowned upon these days.

ELECTRO HARMONY, BIG BEATS , LOUD GUITARS
22 April 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Indigo-Dub :: Palo Alto :: Tilt ::
A heady evening of technology mashed with guitars as Night & Day plays host to a melodic taste of the future.

BURNING FIRE INTO EVERYONES EYES
25 April 2002 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead ::
The white lights from the stage are burning fire into everyoneís eyes, at the end of every song, with every crescendo. The noise is violently dynamic and blisteringly unhindered. But this is how itís meant to be. Conrad Keely is bent into his microphone,

CHAIRSMISSING 15 - MORE HOT SLICED ALT.ROCK
26 April 2002 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Lorimer :: CHAIRSMISSING :: TVH-3 :: Lookin :: The Obsession ::
Fighting a tough battle of venues tonight with at least two other big alternative nights on at the same time, Chairsmissing still delivers me a superb CD (one of their best ?) and as ever, a truly special line up in the (quite busy) city tonight.

A Very UNstill Movement
18 April 2002 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Oceansize :: Biffy Clyro ::
Oceansize tread our local boards, in the process igniting what has to be their journey onto greater things

I am Elvis Presley. I am the King
06 April 2002 / The Witchwood, Ashton Under Lyne / Manchester
:: Goldblade :: Reasons Until :: Fat Cat :: Innabula ::
Bloody Hell, why canít Gold Blade play in Manchester, or somewhere I donít have to drive toÖno beer for me, sourÖ Anyway, witness an eclectic bill building to the chaos of the Bladeís headlining set
