< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For June, 2004

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

BURNING LIKE FIRE
24 June 2004 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: Modest Mouse :: Bright Eyes ::
Finding truth in what Conor says is not particularly hard as every word he utters is brutally honest.

SONGS FOR MATING WHALES
28 June 2004 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Secret Machines ::
Stood staring blankly whilst being tortured by the call of mating whales, the wait is still largely worth it.

DEEP FRIED HEROES
27 June 2004 / Chorlton Beech Rd Festival / Manchester
:: Crispy Ambulance ::
As the years went by I came to realise that a lot of the "lesser" Factory bands were at least as exciting and innovative as their better known labelmates, and I wasn't alone.

A BIT OF THE OLD ULTRAVIOLENCE
24 June 2004 / Star and Garter / Manchester
:: Mugstar :: Geisha ::
Der-der-der-der! “An object!” etc…Genius! It could well be Fugazi taking the Louisville pioneers outside and knocking their teeth out.

A.M. Radio
20 June 2004 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Maupa :: Fi-Lo Radio :: The A.M. ::
For some people it all appeared a bit too much. For most it just seemed powerfully satisfying.

DUTCH WIN ON PENALTIES
26 June 2004 / The Castle (Oldham St) / Manchester
:: Megarider :: The Forest :: Politburo ::
Politburo's impressive melodies, drag an anchor of saccharin sweetened bile beneath the surface.

LAKE ME UP BEFORE YOU GO GO
09 June 2004 / Star and Garter / Manchester
:: Lake Me :: Retisonic ::
Somewhere between the most tender of folk rock (Low, Mazzy Star), off-beat rhythmic femme indie (Autoclave, Sleater Kinney) and post-rock expansionism, Lake Me are painfully honest, intimate and above all, captivating.

BLOC BLOWOUT
12 June 2004 / The BierKeller / Manchester
:: Bloc Party :: The Longcut :: Nine Black Alps :: Komakino ::
Piercing frequencies leave only room for you to do two things, put your fingers in your ears, or dance like you’re at one of the hottest cramped but apparently coolest nights the Bier Keller has seen in a long while.

THE GLEE CLUB
11 June 2004 / The Octagon / Bolton (mcr)
::
A brilliant delivery of classic popular song set to an undercurrent of scandal and disintegrating moral codes

CRAZY HORSES
06 June 2004 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Ikara Colt ::
Anger and aggression personified, bass swinging, one foot astride the speaker stand, the movement and vibrancy acting as a foil to the swagger and strut

SOMETHING FOR YOUR WEEKEND
08 June 2004 / The Lowry Theatre / Salford
:: Adem :: The Divine Comedy ::
It's kind of 20s big band without a big band...

RIP IT UP
03 June 2004 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: Neil’s Children :: Razorlight ::
"...best band you’ll see this year” said the bloke next to me as three young men with interestingly shaped hair took to the stage

HOT HOT HEAT
10 June 2004 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Glass :: The Flow :: Youth Movie Soundtrack Strategies :: The Permissive Society ::
Patrick Moore, has a theory that the recent dark speck, seen crossing the face of the sun this week, was in fact not Venus, but was, the Night & Day venue

BURN BURN
05 June 2004 / Academy 1 / Manchester
:: Ash ::
Back from the point of meltdown and with a new LP of the same title. J.O. catches Ash on an incendiary return to form.

DRIPPING IN HEDONISM
06 June 2004 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: yourcodenameis:milo :: Kill Kenada :: Ikara Colt ::
One of THE lineups of the year so far in the world's hottest venue (degrees C). The future of new punk noise.

THE UNSUNG SING
03 June 2004 / The BierKeller / Manchester
:: Richmond Fontaine :: The Ladybug Transistor ::
Tonight is the night of long-established yet comparatively unsung heroes of the USA alt-country underground.

ART & SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS
03 June 2004 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Morning Runner :: Shirokuma :: Beats For Beginners :: Grand Transmitter ::
Some impressive additions to Manchester’ re-invented and resurgent indie scene via Faith & Hope
