< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For April, 2008

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

SHOPPING CENTRE
24 April 2008 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Precinct (2008) :: The Mons ::
A handsome helping of light gothic psychedelia built for inner city basement clubs

DARK NIGHT
18 April 2008 / The Castle / Oldham
:: Glass :: The Marder ::
If you imagine a world somewhere between Manchester and Berlin

RUSSIAN FRONT
27 April 2008 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Grammatics :: ¡Forward, Russia! :: The ABC Club ::
Just watching ¡Forward, Russia! is tiring enough, but when they catapult into old favourite "Twelve" early on an energetic moshpit springs into life down the front

LIFE ON MARRS
23 April 2008 / Ruby Lounge / Manchester
:: Slow Readers Club :: The Windfall :: Kid4077 ::
Why have one vocalist or indeed lead guitarist when you can have two?

GREEN DAY
26 April 2008 / The Green Room / Manchester
:: El Policia :: Politburo :: The Nouvelles :: The Joint ::
The Green room continues to promote the cause for live music with another Saturday night showcase of local bands, diverse in style and expectation

TO LIVE AND DIE IN A D.A.
22 April 2008 / Tiger Lounge / Manchester
:: Tom Mansi and the Icebreakers :: Kid Voodoo ::
The decidedly high quiff count in here tonight are equally enthralled...

GET ME TO THE CHURCH
24 April 2008 / Sacred Trinity Church / Salford
:: Ulrich Schnauss :: Airiel :: Daniel Land And The Modern Painters ::
The name Sonic Cathedral might have started out as a joke, but tonight a privileged audience with the high priest sees it close to literal

EARS GOOD & MOUTH BAD
08 April 2008 / The Met / Bury (mcr)
:: Butler Williams :: Lisa-Marie Glover :: Alex Kirby :: Daniel Rossall ::
Witty, beautiful and adventurous are terms that you’d expect to find on a dating website, but Butler Williams are literally wearing the T-Shirt. Well not literally, but they do wheel out a mini glockenspiel

FOUR GUN SALUTE
10 April 2008 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Rig Up Explosive :: Stations :: By The Dorcia Deceived :: Troops of Mafeking ::
Roadhouse rocks out with four new and pretty exciting rock bands..

MAYBE TOMORROW
17 April 2008 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Manyanas ::
Hey hey “We’re The Manyanas!”

SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS
17 April 2008 / Dry Bar / Manchester
:: The Sugars :: Box Kid ::
Skipping through the 50’s and 60’s (with a lunch break in the 80’s) to bring us something new, seems worth all of the effort

AS COOL AS KIM DEAL
14 April 2008 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: The Breeders :: Jim Noir ::
The shimmering exuberance of it asks one conquering question: “Who the fuck needs a Pixies revival?”

MINOR THREAT
09 April 2008 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: Elliot Minor :: Furthest Drive Home :: The Higher ::
Elliot Minor are just part of a rare spectacular cast

HERE COMES THE (SERIOUS?) BIT
08 April 2008 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: The Long Blondes :: XX Teens ::
I wanna be shouting “Edie Sedgwick, Anna Karina, Arlene Dahl!” with all the other kidz.

TURN UP THE BAND
04 April 2008 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Tim And Sam's Tim And The Sam Band With Tim And Sam :: King Kayak ::
Original, innovative and easily the best thing – both in musical talent and for pure listener-enjoyment

DRY EYES
03 April 2008 / Dry Bar / Manchester
:: SAY (Say Jansfield) :: Ernies Rhythm Section :: Peterloo Massacre ::
They were good before, but a five piece version of SAY is more than just remarkable

WHITE MUSIC
03 April 2008 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Ben McGarvey :: Thomas White :: The Minority ::
Tonight, stripped down to just voice and guitar, it feels almost like spying on some private moment

FUTURAMA
02 April 2008 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Holy Fuck :: Free Blood ::
"It's kind of hard to tell your parents you're going on tour with Holy Fuck..."

PERFECT COUNTERPOINT
01 April 2008 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Delphic ::
There are times - not that many, but times nonetheless - when words fail me

HAPPILY EVER EFTER
01 April 2008 / Ruby Lounge / Manchester
:: Efterklang :: Nancy Elizabeth :: Our Broken Garden ::
The Ruby Lounge plays host to seven out of eight members of Efterklang, but visa regulations are no match for post-rock.
