< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For July, 2008

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

PERFECTLY ABSURD MADNESS
29 July 2008 / Tiger Lounge / Manchester
:: The Fountain :: Jannocks :: Trout Mask ::
With lines such as “The sweets will poison me slowly” or “I can hide in my brain” it would seems they may have been a bit too exposed to the midday sun

TAP ROOM
30 July 2008 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Laymar :: Ratatat :: Gloria Cycles ::
Ratatat aren't afraid to unleash the sort of metal solos that include - gasp! - finger-tapping, a technique outlawed by the Fretwank Police some years ago

BUSH TUCKER
31 July 2008 / The Castle / Oldham
:: Bushart ::
God only knows whose deranged idea it was to have another one sitting beside John Lever but it was a brilliant one.

SUMMER IN THE PARK : 12-13 July 08
13 July 2008 / Platt Fields / Manchester
:: Sophie’s Pigeons :: Liz Green :: I Am Kloot :: BoneBox :: Stephen Fretwell :: Nomad Jones :: The Bottomfeeders :: The Sylvias :: Big Finn ::
Ged was also at Summer In The Park for MM - here's another perspective on this years hugely successful event..

HIPNOTIZED!
25 July 2008 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Lucid Dream :: Indian Apple ::
"This is a new one" and it's like someone flicks a switch and suddenly they metamorphosise into the young, lo-fi, first-album Spacemen 3

PORTRAIT OF A KILLER TUNE
24 July 2008 / Dry Bar / Manchester
:: Getoutofcities :: Daniel Land And The Modern Painters ::
Fucked-Up Thursday is the delightful new name for Beat Promotions' Thursday Dry Bar session ...

NO DISCO LIES
23 July 2008 / Ruby Lounge / Manchester
:: Moby ::
As really quite bizarre concepts go, this one was a belter

MONKEY BUSINESS
15 July 2008 / The Castle (Oldham St) / Manchester
:: Arficeden :: Apes Fight Back ::
The ceiling lives to fight another day... just about

SUMMER IN THE PARK - SUNDAY
13 July 2008 / Platt Fields / Manchester
:: Liam Frost :: The Bottomfeeders :: The Lonesome And Penniless Cowboys :: The Travelling Band ::
Sunday brings unexpectedly glorious sunshine, and the queues are massive at both gates...

SUMMER IN THE PARK - SATURDAY
12 July 2008 / Platt Fields / Manchester
:: George Borowski :: Its A Buffalo :: Nomad Jones :: I Am Kloot :: BoneBox :: Frank Sidebottom ::
Food And Music Lovers Unite! says the programme.

RADIO, LIVE TRANSGRSSIVE
10 July 2008 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Jeremy Warmsley :: Liam Finn :: Ox.Eagle.Lion.Man :: So So Modern ::
Their songs all seem to teeter on the line between high melodrama and utter nonsense, like The Divine Comedy gone power-goth with drums rolling like a seaside magician's intro...

THE SAKI AFFAIR
07 July 2008 / Café Saki, Rusholme / Manchester
:: Souvaris :: Sincabeza :: Worried About Satan :: Axnaar ::
Overall though another fine evening from Bad Uncle - We really are quite privileged to have them.

MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS
04 July 2008 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Why? ::
It may be a sad thing to say in a climate of arena excess but Why? are crying out for a good light show or set of visuals

ALMOST A DEVIL INSIDE
09 July 2008 / Hard Rock Cafe / Manchester
:: The Star Fighter Pilot :: The 66 :: Fog Lights ::
As The 66 gather momentum it definitely won’t be long before something big happens – in fact I already think it is..

SLAP, BANG, ROCK AND ROLL
08 July 2008 / The Met / Bury (mcr)
:: Jon Gomm :: Terry Emm :: Simon Stewart ::
Forget your Johnsons and your Faulkers - Gomm is perhaps the one with a brighter originality

BURGLAR
03 July 2008 / The Castle (Oldham St) / Manchester
:: Manifesto ::
It’s all a bit ramshackle but pleasantly so, with the slow, often repetitive big jangled chords seemingly going on for ever
