< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For July, 2002

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

SUN - AND THE MOON, IN OLDHAM
25 July 2002 / Club Epona / Oldham
:: Morgan4 :: The Moon :: Limousine ::
Somehow, this time of year seems strangely inappropriate for hanging around dark clubs listening to melancholy indie music

PERSONAL JOURNEYS
20 July 2002 / Bridgewater Hall / Manchester
:: Talvin Singh ::
After an insightful tour into the core of Talvins influences and culture - a reflection of his very personal journey through india - a feeling of anticipation throughout the audience as they fidgeted in their seats awaiting the night’s live performance

A SLIGHT RETURN
20 July 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Flawed ::
These guys know how to put on a star performance, even if it feels like they’re playing in an oven

YOU WISH
25 July 2002 / The Witchwood, Ashton Under Lyne / Manchester
:: Oceansize :: When Animals Attack ::
More scarier than Mogwai and more beautiful than Elbow

SHOW US WHAT YOU'RE MADE OF
23 July 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Adom ::
A mixture of uplifting beats, yet melancholy lyrics, with atmospheric Pink Floyd tones.

KERRANG! GENERATION X
21 July 2002 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Hell Is For Heroes :: Biffy Clyro :: Kinesis ::
Every defining moment about tonight has been punctuated by sweaty heads, moshing elbows, teenage snogging and underage drinking. This is a gig for the Kerrang! Generation of nu-metal, emo and MTV2.

HOMAGE, A TRIBUTE TO THE MUSIC OF JOY DIVISION AND NEW ORDER
15 July 2002 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: HedzJellmo :: Gabrielle's Wish :: Fatshaft :: Drift :: Mentalist :: 'Various Artists' ::
Manc Transimissions - Why did everyone’s sampler break down? Why do birds suddenly appear?

MUSIC FOR THE MAGNIFICENT 7 (or 8)
17 July 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Hawksley Workman and the Delicious Wolves :: BoneBox ::
The music comes in wild stabs and crescendos, the antithesis of currently fashionable garage-rock chug-a-thons. Hawksley rises from Costello-like sneer to swooping Buckley falsetto and back again and all over the shop

IN A FLAT FIELD
13 July 2002 / Lancashire Cricket Club, Old Trafford / Manchester
:: New Order :: Doves :: MOVE FESTIVAL ::
When a band comes on and says "We're going to play our hearts out for you", without an single jot of falsehood, the hairs on the back of your neck prick up with expectancy

"THIS COULD BE GOOD"
02 July 2002 / The Barfly2 / Sheffield
:: Jackie O ::
Like the spinning wheels in an one armed bandit, you can see the confusion running round the virgin punters

ANY BAND IN ANY TOILET VENUE IN ANY CITY ?
09 July 2002 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Remote :: Tsuji Giri :: Minuteman ::
In between songs we're told about a job delivering sandwiches. I wouldn’t buy a sandwich off him, I reckon he’d spit in it

VISCERAL ROCK’N’ROLL FURY
10 July 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Rapture :: The Obsession :: CLUB SUICIDE ::
Two very cool bands, and Club Suicide’s superior punk/noise disco made it almost worth paying TWO-POUNDS NINETY for a can of Red Stripe, and N&D’s rehashed décor looks very classy...

EARTHQUAKE ON SACKVILLE STREET
04 July 2002 / Retro Bar / Manchester
:: Beecher :: [Missed Her Bliss] :: Ripley ::
The question has to be: “does metal have a future?” The answer after tonight’s entertainment would have to be a resounding “Yes!”

BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS
04 July 2002 / The Palace, Levenshulme / Manchester
:: Gridlock :: BoneBox :: Joe's Steakhouse :: Moco :: Indigo-Dub :: Ocean8 ::
If I hadn’t got so pissed that I woke up fully clothed including shoes, then I’d be dancing…You couldn’t have picked any better bands for this date really

HAVE YOU SEEN A WHITE RABBIT?
01 July 2002 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: To Rococo Rot :: Luma Lane :: Twisted Nerve White Rabbit ::
The gods have already pissed on summer with characteristic perversion, and it reeks with the crippled wane of autumn instead. Tonight should have been nothing more than leaden and grey - Instead, against this music it somehow understands itself
