< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For January, 2003

Bringing you all the Release Reviews that matter since 1999

8 SONG
08 January 2003 / Northern Ambition / 9 Trk 10” Vinyl
:: Stephen Fretwell ::
You should buy this collectable, fitting and rather special album now

SCRUFFY’s BIG DAY OUT
06 January 2003 / Demo / 7 Trk CD
:: None Of The Above ::
A sincere effort but perhaps a bad idea. 10 out of 10 for effort

REALLY SOMETHING
06 January 2003 / Demo / 3 Trk CD
:: Giant Planets ::
Pub rock with a well played competent rock edge mixing AC/DC with trad heavy rock

SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND
06 January 2003 / Demo / 4 Trk CD
:: Fat Cat ::
FC mix the early three chord thrash of The Clash (London’s Burning in fact) and inject a West Coast off kilter indie punk feel to proceedings

EVERY KIND OF AGONY
06 January 2003 / Demo / 3 Trk CD
:: Seven Years Dead ::
Heavy, head shaking, head busting heavy metal performed without compromise and with a complexity that provides an intermittent atmosphere between the raging verses and chorus’s

A VALENTINE RECORDS SAMPLER
08 January 2003 / Valentine / 10 Trk CD Album
:: Various Artists ::
An Album that reflects the spirit, attitude and taste of the label, which has emerged as one of the more exciting home grown label prospects. A keen finger on the pulse, a love for music and most importantly of all, zero bullshit.

THE COSMOS GOT TO KNOW ITSELF
06 January 2003 / Promo / 12 Trk CD Album
:: Clanger ::
Breezy, down beat pop, featuring guitars and big production values

LINE OF SYMMETRY
06 January 2003 / Demo / 3 Trk CD
:: Inflatable Heroes ::
The ghost of Seattle may have been laid to rest, but IH manage to dollop in a good 70’s vibe to the plot

CASTAWAY
06 January 2003 / Demo / 4 Trk CD
:: The Mirrors ::
Top flight stuff – smooth, noisy, well rounded and very well mixed and EQ’d - It’s one of the most balanced CDs we’ve had on Demo

ARMADILLO IN THE SNOW
06 January 2003 / Dead Digital / 4 Trk CD
:: Primitive Painter ::
A sweet and sour bag of electronica that works, without ever intending to be a top 30 hit with its aim probably directed at being at least different and certainly experimental

ALWAYS AND FOREVER
06 January 2003 / Lakota (Columbia / Sony) / 3 Trk CD
:: JJ72 ::
An obvious cull from the album, but its soaring tones and crashing chorus make it a Radio Friendly affair that still has the big guitar punches and driving drum beats

BORN AGAIN
08 January 2003 / XL / 3 Trk CD
:: Badly Drawn Boy ::
BDB rounds off a successful tour and critically acclaimed album with the fender’ish guitar infested “Born Again”

TIME FOR HEROES
08 January 2003 / Rough Trade / 3 Trk CD
:: The Libertines ::
Their debut album may have stank ever so slightly, but they’ve done the right thing and released the best track off it

JUST THE WAY I’M FEELING
06 January 2003 / Echo (Universal) / 3 Trk CD
:: Feeder ::
A year on from Jon Lee (RIP), Feeder release a further single from their successful current album and announce an extensive Uk tour

DANGER! HIGH VOLTAGE
08 January 2003 / XL / 3 Trk CD
:: Electric Six ::
The Village People meets The Sex Pistols. Maybe , maybe not...
