< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For June, 2010

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

EASTERN PROMISE
25 June 2010 / The Deaf Institute / Manchester
:: The Middle East ::
The expat population is out in force tonight, and who could blame them? The Middle East last saw their home in the far north of Queensland three months ago and their hard work is paying off as word spreads about Australia's next great band.

FUTURE ECHOES
24 June 2010 / Sacred Trinity Church / Salford
:: AAAK [As Able As Kane] :: Gabrielle's Wish :: Resist ::
If this was the sound of the near future 20 years ago - a future of electronics and slogans and the death of heavy industry - then that makes it the sound of now: this is one band reunion in which the smell of nostalgia is decidedly absent.

BACK OF THE NET!
23 June 2010 / Sound Control / Manchester
:: Goldblade :: 1913 ::
England get a World Cup reprieve, John Robb's on typically boisterous form, there are kids on the stage and soon the unfettered joy of being ten years old in summer has spread to every last one of us.

TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED
16 June 2010 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: I Am Kloot ::
Foot up on beer crate - check. Songs about drinking and disaster - check. You know what you're getting with I Am Kloot... don't you?

STRANGE DEATH AND LOGIC EQUALS FRICTION
15 June 2010 / Saki Bar / Manchester
:: The Strange Death Of Liberal England :: Elmo Logic :: Swansong ::
I have no idea what that mystery ingredient is that differentiates between a band people just like and one for which people are willing to sacrifice all common sense and travel around the country and love and believe in, only that this band has it

STEPPING OUT FROM THE SHADOW
16 June 2010 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Babe Shadow :: Hey Zeus :: Deadbeat Echoes ::
Getting into The Roadhouse this evening involves negotiating a haze of barriers and police cones, but High Voltage make it worth the effort, even if one band's guitarist is wearing shorts covered in multicoloured fish.

CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN
15 June 2010 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Elohymn :: Trojan Horse :: Sucioperro ::
...at these altitudes, you get the the very best of views

MY GOD, IT'S FULL OF TREES
12 June 2010 / Thetford Forest / Thetford
:: Cherry Ghost :: Doves :: The Cheek ::
The Forestry Commission is, it has to be said, an unlikely gig promoter. And rural Norfolk - or is it Suffolk? - an equally unlikely location for a great Saturday night out with one of Manchester's finest bands.

NOT REALLY BONDING
10 June 2010 / Sound Control / Manchester
:: Young British Artists :: Male Bonding :: Pens :: Milk Maid ::
They're signed to Sub Pop, they look like alt-rock stars in waiting and they specialise in two-minute fuzzcore pop blasts, but somehow Male Bonding fall somewhere short of the sum of their parts.

FIELDS MUSIC
12 June 2010 / Platt Fields / Manchester
:: We Have Band :: Egyptian Hip Hop :: Calvin Harris :: Friendly Fires :: May 68 :: Kele Okereke :: Goldie :: Steve Mason :: Emalkay :: Nero ::
With nine different spaces to dance and a well-chosen selection of electropop, upfront indie, drum'n'bass and more, Parklife drags thousands of Mancunians away from the World Cup for a day.

FRIDAY NIGHT ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF TOWN
11 June 2010 / The Factory (Fac251) / Manchester
:: Exit Calm :: Deadbeat Echoes :: Dead Format ::
While the past is being celebrated across the city, tonight is all about the future and how Exit Calm have taken everything that is great about guitar music to another glorious level. Cheers to the past, here's to the future.

A VERY PECULIAR PARTY
09 June 2010 / Kings Arms / Salford
:: Deadtapes :: Girl Peculiar ::
Mark E Smith may only be there in spirit, but the Shuttleworth single launch sees a fine turnout from Salford's fiercely independent (from Manchester and from the commercial mainstream) music scene.

GLOWING REPORT
08 June 2010 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Golden Glow ::
We welcome the Summer Of Indiepop with a decidedly self-descriptively named band, even if it ends up being a set of two halves - literally.

KEEPING THE FAITH
07 June 2010 / O2 Arena / London
:: Bon Jovi ::
Rock music has always positioned itself cautiously on the razor-edge of the parmesan wedge. They have a better back catalogue than Kiss or Aerosmith, who are revered as rock royalty. Is it just that Tyler took more drugs and Simmons slept with more women?

INFORMATION OVERLOAD
06 June 2010 / Ruby Lounge / Manchester
:: Pig Village :: Mi Ami ::
It's like each of them is listening to something completely different through a pair of invisible headphones and playing along to it, and the singer's on helium: Manchester's live scene would be a far less interesting place without Wotgodforgot.

A DARKER SHADE OF SUMMER
02 June 2010 / Ruby Lounge / Manchester
:: Scout Niblett :: Ed Cottam :: Ora Cogan ::
A female singer-songwriter completely lacking in syrup - in more ways than one...

NO RETRO
02 June 2010 / Retro Bar / Manchester
:: David Thomas Broughton :: Remember Remember ::
What's in a name? The real retro bar's round the corner dishing up shrink-wrapped nostalgia to the unimaginative, whilst this basement and the eclectic line-up of independent, music-loving promoters who call it home could hardly be more forward-thinking.

THE DAY THE MUSIC WON
06 June 2010 / Finsbury Park / London
:: Rage Against the Machine ::
Joe Mcwho? Told you you wouldn't remember his name. A few months after the most successful, justified and grass-roots-driven chart-fixing campaign in internet history, the unlikely recipients of a Christmas Number 1 come to London to say thanks.

OUT TO GO
04 June 2010 / Wigan Social Club (AKA The Legion) / Wigan
:: Moco :: Urchins ::
They blasted out of Wigan with one ambition: to be added to their hometown's hall of fame alongside Uncle Joe's Mint Balls, Wigan Athletic and pea wet. As they bow out, we look back at one of the North West's greatest bands of the last decade.
