Salford Music Scene – 15th March 2011

Almost the calm before the storm as we gather our strength for a busy period of gigging over the next few months. On tonights show:

  1. Neuron No – Saving the World – EP : The Planets recently split with Stephen Evans leaving to join Twisted Wheel. The core of the band relaunched themselves as eclectic trio “Neuron No” whose new EP is absolutely spiffing. They play our Mayfest show on May 21st, expect exemplary musicianship and great tunes from Chadwick, Bowes and Roscoe.
  2. God’s Gift – Anaesthetic – Pathology : the legendary God’s Gift were the other great band to come out of Prestwich in the 1970s and produced a stunning set of classic post punk tunes. From the marvellous retrospective on the Mezzthetics lable.
  3. Kin – Flickering – Flickering – a stunning album which deserves constant airplay – Kin has now started her new solo career in Holland – we wish her success!
  4. Pearl Divers – Afro Pop – Demo – they are back, after a short hiatus the master of funky indie are ready to perform live again with a new line-up and they will also be playing at the Mayfest event.
  5. Kit B – Everything Sounds Like Something Else – Demo – The Hidden Gem have split up but Paul and Danny from the band have started work on putting together a new line-up and Danny has been demoing a few songs which he has shared with me, and rather good they are to!
  6. Mandrake – If I Had All the Answers -Glory Days – a Manchester band but they record and rehearse at Blueprint so they are part of the local scene. Melodic rock with an indie edge…..the album is on its way to me.
  7. Ha Ha Said The Car – Storm Petal Suzie – Demo – another stunning track from the fertile imagination and talented fingers of Johann Kloos of the Sandells. Johann has sent me an album’s worth of material all of which is excellent and I shall be sharing that with you in future weeks.
  8. Kin – The Humming – Flickering – another track from the excellent album – have I mentioned it’s excellent yet?
  9. Neuron No – Spiders Last Moment – EP – as above
  10. Twinkle & Co – Meltdown – Demo – another couple of tunes from the pop-tastic duo …..
  11. Twinkle & Co – Temptation – Demo – as above
  12. Kit B – A Natural Ending – Demo – as above – the melodies on this are stunning!
  13. The Souls – Caught In A Whisper – an acoustic version recorded on Tony Thornborough’s show which i’ve done a bit of mixing on….Brad with an acoustic guitar….hopefully they are playing Mayfest as well if they can sort out a bass player.
  14. Pearl Divers – Super Heavy Black – the Divers at their funky best with Midi Maestro Cap’n Black operating several dozen devices at once……. and the new line up is Lingard, Montague, Black, Byrne and Carter…..
