< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For August, 2006

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

HELLO JOHN GOT A NEW MOTOR ?
31 August 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Whip :: The Real Dolls :: The Courteeners ::
A year on for Nowayback at Night & Day, featuring a birthday line-up well deserved of celebration

MY TALE OF TWO CITIES
23 August 2006 / Academy 3 / Manchester
:: The Spinto Band ::
The Spinto Band – Manchester Academy 3 (23/08/06) and Leeds Festival, Carling Stage (27/08/06)

JACK YER BODY
21 August 2006 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Just Jack :: Money Mark ::
Underrated one-man bedroom genius makes big noises with the 'fourth' Beastie Boy..

QUIET SOUNDS OF THE UNDERGROUND
27 August 2006 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Snowfight In The City Centre :: Danny Saul :: Nancy Elizabeth :: BoneBox :: Isobel Heyworth :: Starless And Bible Black :: Emma Black :: Sian Sofia :: Esker ::
A warm welcome to a FREE holiday away from it all – the vile weather, loud noises and hair cuts are variously banned as is the requirement to pay to get in – this is what happens on bank holidays with the aid of nine acts and two stages

WE SAY DIE
24 August 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: (hooker) :: Performance :: You Say Party ! We Say Die! ::
Performance beef up their still electropop-based sound without detracting from their glorious pop sensibility

CREAM YOURSELF
26 August 2006 / Daresbury/Halton / Warrington
:: Justice :: Goldfrapp :: The Prodigy :: Mylo :: X-Press 2 :: Gnarls Barkley :: Coldcut :: Tiesto :: 2Many DJs :: Paul Van Dyk ::
Where's Gnarls and why does a nightclub festival have rock bands on ?

SUMMER SUNDAE WEEKENDER FESTIVAL - 11-13th AUG 06
11 August 2006 / De Montford Hall / Leicester
:: Belle And Sebastian :: Guillemots :: Little Man Tate :: Brakes :: ˇForward, Russia! :: Buzzcocks :: Elbow :: Joan As Police Woman :: M.Craft :: William Hut :: Gomez :: James Morrison :: A Hawk And A Hacksaw :: DJ Format :: The Junipers :: Kismet :: Isobel Campbell ::
Festivals are commonly being seen as fair-game by sponsors and the corporate world in general - here's something a little different

GRAY DAY
24 August 2006 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: Laeka :: Vim And Vigor :: Out Of The Gray :: Falen Heroes ::
The androgynous chap with a funny haircut and girl's white jeans has a belt line so low that his privates are constantly at risk of falling out

SUNDAY BEST
20 August 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Morning After Girls :: Gecko :: Denis Jones ::
Saturday, Sunday, 1991, 2006, it doesn't matter really - this is timelessly primal space-rock at its best

OTTERSPOOL ROCK
16 August 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: Firesuite :: The Stines :: Cedar Falls ::
They either live in a rather weird town or have vivid imaginations

SILENT NIGHT
18 August 2006 / Night & Day / Manchester
:: The Silent Parade :: Otra Mano ::
The only nod to any form of styling are the white shoelaces that dangle for some unknown reason from the heads of their guitars

ALL THAT JAZZ
17 August 2006 / Life Cafe (now see Studio / Chicago Rock) / Manchester
:: Deodates :: Kristyna And The Puretones ::
In America it's almost the norm for soul-jazz-pop acts to dedicate a tune or two the the Almighty, here faith-informed music is still dogged by images of dull worthy types in jumpers rather than gorgeously photogenic young women

STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT
14 August 2006 / The Attic / Manchester
:: Stranger Son :: Burnst :: 20,000BC ::
This is how it should be. Pushing midnight in a dark room with peeling black-painted walls... Tonight they are angry.

ABSOLUTE NUT
13 August 2006 / Life Cafe (now see Studio / Chicago Rock) / Manchester
:: Paolo Nutini ::
This could even lead to VH1 following him around like hypnotised lambs.

ATTENSHUN
14 August 2006 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: The Answering Machine :: Captain ::
This isn’t just a trip down memory lane to the late eighties

GLOW SHOW
09 August 2006 / Jabez Clegg / Manchester
:: The Amber Club :: Shut Your Eyes And You'll Burst Into Flames :: No Tokyo ::
Flames' drummer, looks uncharacteristically tame due to the apparent shearing of his previously mental Afro, is having none of it

D:PERCUSSION 2006 (v2)
05 August 2006 / Castlefield Arena / Manchester
:: The Pipettes :: Sugars :: Jordan :: Sketch City ::
W. C. Fields once uttered in his inimitable drawl, something along the lines of “Never work with animals or kids”

D:PERCUSSION 2006
05 August 2006 / Castlefield Arena / Manchester
:: The Longcut :: Alterkicks :: Omerta :: Liam Frost :: The Whip :: Daywalkers :: The Nightjars :: The Loungs :: Liam Fray :: Snowfight In The City Centre :: Metrodome :: Jordan :: The Final Tribe ::
It's Manchester's biggest piss-up, er, I mean music event of the summer, it's D:Percussion time...

WEAPONS ALLOWED
09 August 2006 / The Roadhouse / Manchester
:: China White :: Novacane :: Weapons (Weapons Of Mass Belief) ::
Weapons slam out like grenades, bringing together their eclectic cocktail of edgy post punk metal and unstoppable rap/protest
