Salford Music Scene – 22nd March 2011

On this show you can hear……

1.       Death to the Strange – Drink and the Devil – Single – currently on tour in Germany but will be back soon and are appearing at the Helmets for Men Stage at Sounds From The Other City on May 1st and the Salford City Radio Mayfest at Islington Mill on May 21st.

2.       Mancini Fires – Ghosts – Rise EP – Formed in 2009, the North Manchester/Salford – based 4 piece have finally completed their line – up, and are now working hard recording their new material… Combining strong vocals with an acoustic guitar underpinning them, a solid, dynamic rhythm section and melodic echoing lead guitar. The sound the band have in mind is reminiscent of early Coldplay with a nod to U2. Their songwriting conveys both heartbreak and hope in equal measure, it’s clear that this is a band with a lot of potential… From the bleak desperation of Tomorrow Yesterday to the uplifting highs of I Am Not The Same, Mancini Fires put an atmospheric twist on the classic quiet – loud formula, and also an intimate sound with a hint of Damien Rice and Doves can be heard on songs such as Ghosts. Appearing at Mayfest.

3.       The Black Paths – Our North is Rising –  Ibiza & The Hangover – Little Hulton’s master of the synthesizer with tunes inspired by a trip to the Balearics.

4.       Neuron No – Digital Doom – Free Download – Also appearing at Mayfest – i’ve waxed lyrical about the new EP elsewhere on this blog – this is a track that did not quite make it onto the EP.

5.       Samir Hamim – Red Dress – Single – master balladeer and tunesmith from Salford with a lovely song.

6.       Mandrake – Last Orders – Glory Days – another track from the new album from the Manchester band that rehearses and records in Salford. Watch out for them they are great songwriters.

7.       The Fall – Last Orders – Live at the Witch Trial Expanded Edition – one of the earliest recorded pieces of work by longest surviving band in known history with any merit – featuring the second great line up of Smith, Bramah, Baines, Friel and Burns. Live at the famed Electric Circus in 1976.

8.       Jealous – Between the Streets and the Stars – Single – Swinton’s own with their new single.

9.       Kin – Flies – Flickering – another track from the best album so far this year – recorded at the remarkably groovy 6dB studios.

10.   The Black Paths – In the Zoo – Ibiza & The Hangover – more synth fettling from the western suburbs!

11.   Joy Division – Warsaw – An Ideal for Living – just after the switch from Warsaw to Joy Division and the band showing early punk leanings. 1976 when the summer was hot and the world was changing.

12.   Easterhouse – Get Back To Russia – Contenders – another blast from the past, a band which should have had much more success than it did.

13.   Mancini Fires – Paint White – Rise EP – as above

14.   Warm Widow – In A Blackout – Widower – amazing band with an amazing EP – check it out….
