They're just bigger. Much bigger. A triumphant return and well worth the wait

ST ELMO'S WIRE

...if you remember anything beyond this point you weren't trying hard enough.

ON FIRE BEFORE THE DISCO

Hand claps and sing-a-long aren’t requisite, they just seem to happen

FIRE STATIONS
16 May 2007 / The Roadhouse / Manchester

Overall, a demonstration that the good will and support network for the community that forms part of the Northern Quarter is up and truly running.

GALLOPING HOME
17 May 2007 / Life Cafe (now see Studio / Chicago Rock) / Manchester
:: The Vipers :: The Ponys ::
Double header of rather dangerous and intelligent rock - no off the peg Top Shop indie here..no

CHERRY’S SWEET AND SOUR SENTIMENTS
15 May 2007 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Cherry Ghost :: Jay May ::
Before the royalties turn into the mansion in the Lake District, a commanding performance from Cherry Ghost wows a rapturous Academy 3

SONIC ART
14 May 2007 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Engineers :: The Lightshines ::
There will always be something stirring and pleasing about the sound of a great big pile of guitars all sweeping up to a perfect chord change

‘Atlantis To Interzone’ sets the crowd off in spasms

A wild-staring man in a grey boiler-suit and tramp's beard is handing out bananas from a metal bin to the accompaniment of someone hammering scaffolding poles together

TWIN PEAKS
10 May 2007 / Dry Bar / Manchester
:: Edward James Bass :: Blacklands :: iDresden :: Glyn Bailey ::
An anti-scene of disparate and intelligent alternatives to a fashion set they have no reason or desire to conform to. And they like David Lynch films.

WISHING WELL
04 May 2007 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Bobbie Peru :: Gabrielle's Wish :: Optional Wallace ::
Harder, faster, angrier, Peru's Bert looks like he could lose it any minute but tonight he's content just to march around on the monitors staring people straight in the face and shouting.

SOUNDS FROM THE OTHER CITY 2007 - #4
06 May 2007 / Various Venues / Salford
:: I Had An Inkling :: That Fucking Tank :: The Former Bullies :: The Maple State :: Cortina Deluxx :: Magic Arm ::
It's an idea that seems eminently sensible, combining the burgeoning prowess of a number of very likable small venues within a stone's throw of each other into something celebratory, large and rather unique

SOUNDS FROM THE OTHER CITY #3
06 May 2007 / Various Venues / Salford
:: Cortina Deluxx :: We Mythical Kings :: The Real Dolls :: LoneLady :: The Former Bullies :: Performance :: Tremenduloes :: Ting Tings ::
The urban sprawl lining the 7 venues is easy enough to cover in 5 minutes, but the diversity of the events, venues and musical style is far wider...

SOUNDS FROM THE OTHER CITY 2007 - #2
06 May 2007 / Various Venues / Salford
:: I Had An Inkling :: Working For A Nuclear Free City :: Performance :: That Fucking Tank :: Modernaire :: Onions :: The Rise And Fall Of The Rockets :: UR Penetrators :: The Be Be See :: Solar Fire Trio ::
The bank holiday sunshine has given way to the more traditional grey skies and rain, and the streets around Central Station are full of people consulting damp little bits of paper. Yes, it's SOUNDS FROM THE OTHER CITY

SOUNDS FROM THE OTHER CITY 2007 - #1
06 May 2007 / Various Venues / Salford
:: The Answering Machine :: Onions :: The Maple State :: Orphan Boy :: Jakpot :: George Thomas And The Owls :: Primordial Undermind :: The Satin Peaches :: Solar Fire Trio ::
Sounds From The Other City just celebrates being here and of course the music, which as ever offers a broad spectrum of taste, irreverence and originality.
