MAY FOLK WIN
26 April 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Eighteenth Day Of May ::
Whilst The 18th Day Of May unashamedly wear the F label, they refuse to slot neatly into a pigeonhole

FIENDISHLY GOOD FUN
23 April 2006 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Fingathing :: The Fiends ::
Finding the missing link between industrial, trip hop and genuine dance music, being geeky has never been so much fun

NO STOPPING BRAKES
23 April 2006 / Club Academy (Academy 4) / Manchester

Blowing this kind of behaviour up its own arse is exactly what you’d expect from Brakes

BRITISH WAIL
20 April 2006 / The Music Box / Manchester
:: I Like Trains :: Nephew :: Pioneers :: The Search Map ::
The overwhelming urge to beg them to cheer up for their own good is superseded by the fact that they sound absolutely perfect

AMERICAN DRAG ACT

:: Giant Drag :: Foreign Born ::
Not so much dragging their heels, but certainly gigantically off mark

WORSHIP YOUR POP CULT

POLITICS Vs. SCIENCE

If there’s any justice, the red hot Russian word will continue to spread.

SKETCH PAD
05 April 2006 / Star and Garter / Manchester
:: The Organ :: The Bishops ::
It’s not a ukelele, it’s...a small guitar

INFECTIOUS
07 April 2006 / The Castle / Oldham
:: No Tokyo :: Omerta ::
There's a warning of a throat infection – “possibly tonsillitis” – which might affect tonight’s performance- I haven’t got any tonsils anyway.

SPACEMEN
06 April 2006 / The Music Box / Manchester
:: Laymar :: Big Setup :: The Immediate :: Kalev ::
It’s arresting to see this most magnificent band playing out into black space

POWER RANGERS
