Our maiden voyage begins at Islington Mill, DEC 2nd 2011!!!


Since emerging from the infamous house parties of Salford and on the Manchester scene, Suzuki Method have accomplished the rather unlikely feat of marrying the polar worlds of hard rock and eighties dance.

Like “Queens Of The Stone Age transplanted to the Hacienda or the Fall jamming in Studio 54, Suzuki Method is a band that hits you right in the solar plexus, while simultaneously energising your dancing feet.

Intelligent, principled and defiantly old-school, they have recently formed an alliance with lengedary producers Davis Tolan (Primal Scream, Tears for Fears, Johnny Marr) & Jim Spencer (New Order, The Cribs, The Charlatans) to produce their debut album CARPE FERIA!

A sold out debut EP under their belts impeccable Northern music credentials and a wonderfully futurist imperative on UK music, Suzuki Method have firmly pitched themselves as true rock ‘n’ roll outsiders destined gatecrash the Manc and UK music party in 2012.

“Vibrant and refreshing, it’s no surprise that Suzuki Method’s toe-tapping thrills were born out of parties. A compelling mix of shape-throwing and brow-furrowing, as brooding as they are bouncy and twice as addictive.” – CHRIS LONG BBC Manchester

They deserve to be heard by everyone. The best live band in Manchester – CLINT BOON, XFM

Really well written and produced stuff, and very hooky! Ticks all the boxes – Everything Everything

They pack a punch like Thomas  the Hit Man Hearns – Lefty Longbottom, FXY Radio

Also singled out for the best of myspace, XFM Unsigned heat winners, , band of the week on Clint Boon, Sam Walker and Terry Christian’s XFM shows, BBC Introducing in Manchester “Ones to Watch” and “Artist of the Week” 2011.

We’ve wanted to these guys live for a while, they smash it!
Fresh from a US tour you could say it’s nn eclectic mix of orchestral, adrenaline-fueled dance tracks juxtaposed with quiet, bedroom pop songs and eerie, sparse, acoustic cuts. Check em out!

There are no theatrics with this band, no set performance, no gimmicks, they don’t do ‘stuff’ but their stage presence is captivating. It’s easy to draw reference with Joy Division, New Order, Dépêche Mode, Human League, The Smiths, The Verve, Killers, KOL et al, but TRB seem to have extracted all the dark and edgy bits and adding their own intellect and a dose of sub zero attitude have managed to produce a bang on contemporary Alt/Indie sound that just stands out as being, well, totally different.
