< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For May, 2009

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

MM10 : BOLTON FUNDRAISING PARTY
30 May 2009 / Dog & Partridge / Bolton (mcr)
:: Islands Lost At Sea :: The Minions :: The Planets :: Backahyard ::
The best sounds in town, fill the balmy night time air with hard evidence that the Bolton music is more than well...

INSIDE IT'S NIGHT TIME
18 May 2009 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Wintersleep :: Snailhouse ::
There is something faintly weird about going to a gig and stepping out into a summer's 9pm daylight, although not as weird as getting yourself to a gig venue for twenty past six

GIRLS NIGHT OUT
20 May 2009 / Ruby Lounge / Manchester
:: Vivian Girls ::
The lyrics paint out pictures of broken romances but you get the impression with this crowd that they do the dumpin'

WHO ARE YOU ?
26 May 2009 / Tiger Lounge / Manchester
:: Hop Man Jr :: The HeebieJeebies ::
The set is a cross between Dr Who and a demo setting on a keyboard set up to play Nintendo gaming tunes...

RETURN TO OZ
17 May 2009 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: British India :: Hot Red Disco ::
Our guests from down under make it hard not to draw parallels between the decades of Antipodean classic rock and roll and the sneering impulses of post-punk Britain

I CAN SEE MOUNTAINS
14 May 2009 / Dry Bar / Manchester
:: Castrovalva :: Mt. ::
At long last the PA wheezes a final fizzling sigh of relief

FUTURESONIC 09 : JAPTOP
17 May 2009 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: De De Mouse :: Riddim Saunter :: Tucker :: 80kidz ::
"I play fucking sexy Japanese dance music, I hope you enjoy it!!"

STRIPTEASE
16 May 2009 / Cambridge Corn Exchange / Cambridge
:: Morrissey :: Doll & The Kicks ::
Viewing him as a younger man, one might not have imagined that, nearing 50, he would rip his shirt off, stripper style

STRANGE NOISE
10 May 2009 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Holy Fuck :: It Hugs Back :: Dutch Uncles ::
Who would have predicted that a band whose very name limits their PR opportunities and who play demented Krautrock-flavoured dance music on things that look like they found them in a skip would be a viable proposition?

THIS TOWN IS LOOKING LIKE A GHOST TOWN
09 May 2009 / The Castle / Oldham
:: Slow Readers Club :: Edith Fiore ::
Purveyors of skyscraping sounds built from northern anthems

LETS ZEP
07 May 2009 / The Academy 2 / Newcastle
:: Airship ::
Airship announce their arrival, with a grandiose sound that quickly resonates well with all sectors of the audience

A CABINET MEETING
07 May 2009 / Dry Bar / Manchester
:: Billy Ruffian :: Politburo :: Plague Doctors :: The Thinman Project :: Kingfishers Catch Fire ::
A Cabinet Of Curiosities....A musical play of extraordinary proportions by persons unknown...

SOUNDS FROM THE OTHER CITY 09 - #3
03 May 2009 / Various Venues / Salford
:: A Middle Sex :: David A. Jaycock :: (unknown electronic artist) :: Infinite Light :: Peggy Sue :: Mazes :: Nia Morgan :: Chops :: Sam And The Plants :: The Invisible :: Bridget Hayden :: Todd ::
Once again it's an opportunity to take in some off-kilter rock in gritty pub venues, courtesy of Sounds From The Other City

SOUNDS FROM THE OTHER CITY 09 - #2
03 May 2009 / Various Venues / Salford
:: GNOD :: Banjo Or Freakout :: A Middle Sex :: (unknown electronic artist) :: The Lexie Mountain Boys :: Gordon Tinnitus :: Chops ::
That a selection of such exceptionally curated leftfield music even exists is a cause for celebration; that it's managed to sell out (tickets) without "selling out" (to commercialism) is nothing short of a triumph

SOUNDS FROM THE OTHER CITY 09 - #1
03 May 2009 / Various Venues / Salford
:: Banjo Or Freakout :: Wu lf Wu lf :: Lost Knives :: Dorian Wood :: Vinny & The Curse :: Elvis :: Plugs :: Todd ::
Another year, another SOUNDS FROM THE CITY and for this trusted barometer and melting pot of the wild, wonderful and the new

LIVE AT LEEDS 2009
02 May 2009 / Various Venues / Leeds
:: I Like Trains :: International Trust :: Sky Larkin :: Future Of The Left :: Wintermute :: Slow Club :: The Dharma :: Lord Auch :: Fryars :: Take A Worm For A Walk Week ::
May - the month where you can quite easily go to more gigs than there are days
