CONFUSION OF SOUND
30 June 2006 / Academy 2 / Manchester
:: Brian Jonestown Massacre ::

LIVING IN A BOX
30 June 2006 / The Music Box / Manchester
:: Snowfight In The City Centre :: The Answering Machine :: The Maple State ::
You can't help thinking that sticking these three bands on the same bill in a year or so's time will require a venue considerably larger than Music Box.

MAKE UP TO BREAK UP
29 June 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Permissive Society :: Working For A Nuclear Free City :: Selfish Cunt ::
Selfish Cunt now come equipped with bass, guitar, drums... and a woman who may or may not be part of the "act" sprawling across the front speakers in shiny plastic trousers dishing out vaguely dirty looks from behind several tons of make-up

The focus of thousands of wet dreams, Charlotte bounces entertainingly across the stage

HOT HOT HEAT
23 June 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester

Shingai dishes up a few handstands against the N&D wall as some sort pre-show warm up

HEAD START :: It Sounded Better In My Head #1
13 June 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Pagan Wanderer Lu :: :( :: Germlin :: Trademark ::
It's true - it's the most eclectic lineup possible from twee acoustic duos to bedroom laptop glitchcore or really fucking loud post-rock

PASSION PARADE
16 June 2006 / The Boardwalk / Sheffield
:: Puressence :: Omerta ::
It's not hard to see why this band inspire such passion; you get back what you give

TIGER STRIKE
18 June 2006 / Tiger Lounge / Manchester
:: Day For Airstrikes ::
Warp-style fractured electroscapes destroy current perceptions on the current indie-rock lexicon

PORK PIE EYES
14 June 2006 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Mr Hudson & The Library :: Vincent Vincent & The Villains ::
VV is surrounded by a fan base who have clearly dressed for the occasion with their pork-pie hats cocked at a jaunty angle

Grohls gnarled voice is in fine fettle as the Foos rack up the volume

BACK TO THE FRONT
08 June 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Monomania :: Black Fiction :: The Lucida Console :: Arty Zyph, Kong ::
How many other words are there to describe loudness?

6/6/06 - ARE WE SCARED?
06 June 2006 / The Attic / Manchester

A collision of Zep and Sabbath with a sprinkling of Rammstein - yikes ! and it's the devils day too !

WE WILL ROCK YOU

The hit and miss nature of Fightstar is too much for one fan to take and he or she hurls eggs at them

NO B&S

Scotland’s finest indie, enjoying a resurgence, presents us with the main three acts tonight, giving us just a glance at the eclectic range of the label

NO DIVING IN THE DIVE
08 June 2006 / Jabez Clegg / Manchester
:: Mojave 3 ::
Solidly built and unshaven, Halstead looks like he should be driving a 24-wheeler across Texas

BLONDE BOMBSHELLS OVER BOLTON
09 June 2006 / The Octagon / Bolton (mcr)
::
Platers musical fuses live music with nostalgic comedy in another triumphant Octagon production.

MORE THAN A TOUCH OF FROST
02 June 2006 / Academy 2 / Manchester
