< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For April, 2007

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

ESCAPE ROUTE
27 April 2007 / Dry Bar / Manchester
:: Jupiter Sands :: Pooler :: Make Good Your Escape :: Wasted Angels ::
They may have travelled all the way from the South Coast and yet somehow the sound of North Manchester runs through them

SAY YEAH!
28 April 2007 / Pleasure (Withington) / Manchester
:: SAY (Say Jansfield) ::
The sun is fading on a glorious summers day but Say ensure that the sunshine carries on through the night

STOP PRESS! BOLAN AND HENDRIX: ALIVE!
25 April 2007 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Pop Levi :: Super Nashwan ::
While half expecting to see a man in a jumpsuit fake his own death, Academy 3 witnesses a return to glam excess and some impressive rock’n’roll move-busting

FUN HOUSE
26 April 2007 / The Castle / Oldham
:: Damian Mercer :: Feast Of Fools :: The Whyers ::
The Unsigned Show at Revolution Radio stage another three acts from their “hotly tipped” playlist

EARTHLY PLEASURES
26 April 2007 / The Ritz / Manchester
:: Das Wanderlust :: Art Brut :: Maximo Park ::
You watch them now and wonder how Smith's overwhelming personality and the band's great big powerful sound ever even fitted into the likes of the Roadhouse

BRIGHTON THE BUTTON
25 April 2007 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Electric Soft Parade :: Chris T-T :: Actress Hands, ::
Is that the sound of Pete "Rock Family Trees" Frame's head exploding?

HIDDEN DEPTHS
23 April 2007 / Star and Garter / Manchester
:: Denis Jones :: Thee More Shallows :: Bracken ::
A long way to travel to follow a band but one suspects that by the end of this European leg of their tour there may well be a hardy few prepared to make the trip in the opposite direction.

THURSDAY THE 19th PART TWO (the girls)
19 April 2007 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Dead Disco :: Red Vinyl Fur ::
It's getting near the sort of time when anyone with any sense would be thinking about going to bed...

THURSDAY THE 19th PART ONE (the boys)
19 April 2007 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: iDresden :: Pierre Hall & The Lead Balloons ::
..A sweet boy with a heart full of tunes and a scruffy bunch of mates to help him play them

URBAN CONGESTION
19 April 2007 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: The Earlies :: Archie Bronson Outfit :: The Boy Least Likely To ::
For a moment there it almost feels like festival season has hit early

TOMMY GUNS
14 April 2007 / Dry Bar / Manchester
:: The Exorsisters :: The Tommys :: Soundstripe ::
Unlike many on-line bands the Tommys do not neglect the importance of a live show

LOVING OUR DIGITAL AGE
16 April 2007 / The Attic / Manchester
:: The Glamour Sound System :: Heads We Dance ::
Up the scary staircase to The Attic, the coldest place in Manchester, where at 10pm on a Monday night people are outnumbered by glowsticks

NEW GENIUS TIME
20 April 2007 / The Castle / Oldham
:: The Star Fighter Pilot :: Tim And Sam's Tim And The Sam Band With Tim And Sam ::
As SFP gyrates like an animated Marc Almond (or Andy McLusky) in his Isle Of Man Ferry Captain’s jacket he shines brightly whilst Tim & Sam create a cascade of emotion from a team of six..

UK GOLD GENERATION
12 April 2007 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Fields :: Hush The Many ::
A mass of gorgeous swirling keyboards topped with sweetly blending vocal harmonies...it's like a lost My Bloody Valentine song that's found its way home.

MANI'S MAINLINE REVOLUTION
16 April 2007 / Revolution Bar (Deansgate Locks) / Manchester
:: Mainline ::
As it ends even our host is lost for words, or at least words he can say on live radio, eventually making do with "....Jesus wept!"

HOT DAWGS
14 April 2007 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Ted Chippington :: Kamikaze Sperm :: Goldblade ::
Three songs into the encore, the band try to leave the stage again but nobody's having that

FOALS RUSH IN..
12 April 2007 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: This Et Al :: Foals ::
Come the morning, on the stereo, they might well have no tunes - or equally might craft a quite outstanding debut album, who knows? - but it doesn't matter

BOBBY DAZZLER
11 April 2007 / Club Academy (Academy 4) / Manchester
:: Joan As Police Woman ::
Fiddle players in bands - even great bands - don't generally go on to craft beautiful songs of their own

CIRCUS GAMES
04 April 2007 / Mint Lounge / Manchester
:: These Eyes Are Cameras :: Arficeden ::
Watch where you’re standing as the resident unicyclist may well run over at least one foot

WIRED FOR SOUND?
05 April 2007 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Voltage Union :: :( [colonopenbracket] :: Black Wire ::
Easter, it's when you go and visit your relatives isn't it?

SHERBERT FOUNTAIN
04 April 2007 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Blood Red Shoes :: Dirty Circus :: Daggers (aka / formerly Bureau) :: The Evening Society ::
Fuck her, I love Manchester

SAX ATTACK
03 April 2007 / Retro Bar / Manchester
:: Samuel Sharp :: Kailash :: Stranger Son :: Mugstar ::
Stranger Son have magically absorbed most of the best interesting, fractious, downright sexy rock music of the past 30 or so years

MOTOR-HEADS
04 April 2007 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: The Sword :: Clutch ::
The Sword rattle their foils whilst the Clutch still have another gear available to them...it's all good

SPANK MY MIST UP
03 April 2007 / Jabez Clegg / Manchester
:: Misty's Big Adventure :: The Retro Spankees ::
I had been told to expect a riot from tonight, and indeed there is one, on stage at least
