Salford Music Scene – 20th September 2011

Previewing the Salford Music Festival again this week with music from (bands in bold are playing the festival):

  • Kill for Company – Pink Fluffy Dynamite – a new track from the dynamic duo
  • Claw the Thin Ice – Comfort Zone – interesting change of direction from Ian Breen on this recent release
  • Trojan Horse – And the lights went down – from the album……which you can now get for free from their bandcamp page
  • Early Mojo – Dirt – Walkden’s finest from the Beergasm Demo – leave them a message on Facebook if you want a copy
  • Mr Heart – Mr Heart – from the excellent “The Hide” release from last year which coincidentally Tamsin gave a me a Sneaky preview copy of at the main stage event of last years festival
  • Sandells – Cockroaches – a new track from the titanic trio which moves from free jazz improv into kraut-motorik with amazing ease…..
  • Neuron No – Limonchik – another trio demonstrating excellent musical dexterity
  • Hot Vestry – Turn On –  and yet another trio proving that the future of good music is secure….
  • Positronik – The Bitch Knows Your Name – i’m incredibly biased about this lot as they are my chums, and I do their website for them, but I have to say this is very good indeed….another trio by the way…must be a trend
  • AAAK – We Fall Alone  –  if you have not seen these live then do yourself a favour and catch them at the Salford Music Festival – they are duo mostly but sometimes a trio and rarely a quartet
  • The Mang Mang Mangs – Side By Side – another track from a rather impressive duo – they are seeking live opportunities at the moment so if any promoters are interested please contact them…
  • Girl Peculiar – Destiny – the last single and rather excellent it is too…..
  • The Fall – No Bulbs – saw them do this at the International 2 in 1986 – typical of the Brix era with a focus on lead guitar lines and a punchy rhythm

Aural Delights Radio Show – 14th September 2011 – Punk Weekend Special

This show promotes the Punk Weekend at the Crescent in Salford which runs from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th September – there are also some new tunes which have been sent my way……and a couple of classics

  • Early Mojo – Balloon Basket – they come from Walkden, they are a trio, and they open up the Punk Weekend on the Friday evening. From their “Beergasm” release which will be getting more plays on the Salford Music Scene show.
  • Kill For Company – Now You Know – the most exciting new band of the year so far for me…..a mancunian duo with a unique and compelling sound – also play Fridays event
  • Dead Circus – Paranoia – also on Friday – a trio from Manchester.
  • Wire – The Agfers of Kodack – Read and Burn 01 – the first studio collaboration by the band  since Manscape, proving that time had not mellowed them.
  • Moongoose – Stepping into Shadow – Silhouettes and Shadows – another track from the excellent EP by this great band.
  • The Distrakted – Mancunian Werewolf in Oldham – five piece from Manchester playing Saturday night at the Punk Weekend.
  • Total Bloody Chaos – NHS Death Squads – five piece from various parts of Lancashire…..also playing Saturday night at the Punk Weekend
  • Kick to Kill – Mushroom Cloud – excellent Glasgow quartet on the Flowers in the Dustbin lable.
  • Flying Man Shark – Just A Habit – another track from this excellent band from Scotland – click the link to access a free download of their music.
  • For Abel – On TV – another excellent band from the Flowers in the Dustbin lable.
  • Kill Pretty – Babes In The Wood-  out on the road soon with a settled line-up – more info on our website unsigned page – http://www.salordcityradio.org
  • Girlfixer – Casualty Condemn Me – four piece from Nottingham with an excellent lead singer with a great voice…..they close the Punk Weekend at the Crescent on the Sunday Night.
  • Baby Strange – Brick and Bones – the “headline” act of the Friday night at the Punk Weekend.
  • Van Der Graaf Generator – The Sleepwalkers – Godbluff – arpeggiating keyboards, manic time signatures and all out Hammill word mastery on this classic from the come-back album. I saw them do this in London on one the great come back gigs for the band – having been at the Cambridge Folk Festival watching Bert Jansch the day before it was a bit of a head spinner.
