< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For May, 2003

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

BODY HAMMER
30 May 2003 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: TVH-3 :: Performance :: Tetsuo ::
Thee Virus House have evolved to display a competent lo fi flash of psycho disco…

COWBOY KILLERS
28 May 2003 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: McLusky :: Jarcrew :: Corrigan ::
Each McClusky chorus seems to immediately ignite some minor affray in the centre of the Roadhouse

PILE UP
26 May 2003 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Nylon Pylon ::
Ready to take on the world : They've got the looks and the tunes and the attitude, and the June gigs might be our last chance to see them without having to fight through hundreds of screaming teenage girls

MUSIC TO KNOCK BUILDINGS DOWN TO
08 May 2003 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: The Raveonettes ::
Successfully reproducing the intensity of the greasy low slung blues, overlaid by the almost relaxed vocals of that femme fatale. Sharin Foo

WIG OUT WIG-AN
16 May 2003 / Cafe Nirvana / Wigan
:: Red Vinyl Fur ::
(RVF)..never forget to put a catchy vocal melody in there... for those of us who used to think 4AD-type girly indie bands would be better when they got round to waking up, this is the best of both worlds

SOLO AND ACOUSTIC
21 May 2003 / Apollo / Manchester
:: Neil Young ::
Some things never change. Manchester keeps raining, soldiers keep on warring, touts keep touting and Neil Young, thirty years since he was last here, gleefully annoying an audience expecting ‘Harvest’

HOPE OVER FAITH
25 May 2003 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Hope Of The States :: The Mirrors ::
A new way of thinking and musically exciting in more than equal measures. It can’t be that long before this band, from the relative sticks of Chichester have bigger stages and far wider ambitions

RING FOR ASSISTANCE
03 May 2003 / Kings Arms / Salford
:: Giant Planets :: Narcissus :: Icons Of Poundland :: Autokat :: Loose Canon :: The Zans :: The Exports :: DJ Lego ::
sweeing up a cunning reputation for being different and inventive, plugging straight into the unsigned underground, the launch night for the aA compilation album "Whores on the Doors", shows just how far aA has come over the last 3 or 4 years

ALL AT SEA
21 May 2003 / Life Cafe (now see Studio / Chicago Rock) / Manchester
:: British Sea Power ::
Rapidly approaching the release of their debut album and the weather seems to be behind this vessel as it makes it’s way into the billing as one of British guitar music’s greatest hopes

BEST NAMED BAND IN MANCHESTER ?
15 May 2003 / Jabez Clegg / Manchester
:: The Strange Days :: Made In China :: The Remote Control :: What The Fuck's A Parsnip ::
A band who’d gladly stiletto your testicles and leave without telling you their name

RETURN OF THE ROUGHNECK
13 May 2003 / Casbah / Sheffield
:: Mark Burgess ::
News filtered out that The Chameleons had blown apart again after three years of reunion… so a month later, this low-key date turned out to be quite emotionally charged..

BINGE AND PURGE
01 May 2003 / Life Cafe (now see Studio / Chicago Rock) / Manchester
:: The Fix :: The Avatars :: My Red Bullet ::
Tight and punchy spurred on by detailed, cataclysmic drumming and note perfect melodies

MANGLED NOSTALGIA
13 May 2003 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Therapy? ::
It is only now, with a settled band and the new “High Anxiety” album to promote that Therapy? really look as if they might recover

REMEMBER WHERE YOU ARE
12 May 2003 / Band On The Wall / Manchester
:: Minus :: Oceansize :: Transelement ::
Now with a foot firmly on the lower rungs of the ladder to rockdom, it’s hard not to imagine that they will do anything but ascend

LET GO
07 May 2003 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: The Sonar Yen :: Nada Surf ::
Still small enough to be a well kept secret, untarnished and unfettered by salivating NME journalists and doctrinators of ‘cool’

HELLO !!!! I'M IN LEEDS
04 May 2003 / The Well (formerly Joseph's Well) / Leeds
:: Four Day Hombre :: Oceansize ::
Like drugs to the system - Warm, familiar, crushing - washing over our heads like the last wave sweeping over our mouths, as we take a final breath before sinking into sonic oblivion

ONE / BIG / FUN / DAY
04 May 2003 / Heaton Park / Manchester
:: Feeder :: Badly Drawn Boy :: Stereophonics :: The Coral :: The White Stripes :: Aqualung ::
If you believe, as many of us do up here, that Manchester is the centre of all music, the very gods that dwell here (or those that at least visit us every now and again), have used their overall control of the weather to sinister effect
