Salford Music Scene – 25th April 2012

The significance and sometimes downside of pre-recording radio shows is that things change in between you recording them and them being aired. So that Everyday Goldfish who are listed below are not now playing the Grunge Revival at The Crescent – however Cable 35 who I have featured on the Aural Delights Show are instead. So the show comprises (and can be listened to here):

1 The Words Head Over Heels Single
2 Dead Circus Paranoia Demo
3 Well Wisher Breathe In Summer Gangs
4 Everyday Goldfish Second Thoughts Demo
5 Kurb Get On Your Knees and Pray Demo
6 The Ascension The Rift Blood Upon The Rose
7 Lipstick Traces D Minor Demo
8 English Mutts Proud Man Demo
9 Positronik Don’t Come Crying Single
10 Our Day Remains Take This Night Single
11 Saturday Morning Cartoons The Ditch Single (Radio Edit)
12 The Black Paths Wake Up Hold Fast To That Which Is Good
13 Trojan Horse Fire Fire EP
14 Dead Sea Apes Astral House Astral House
15 The Fall Cosmos 7 Ersazt GB

Notes in respect of the above artistes

1. The new single…..a fine follow up to the excellent “Demons”

2.  One of the bands appearing at the Grunge Revival at the TNT Experience at The Crescent Salford on Friday – they are from Manchester

3. From the recent EP “Summer Gangs” – skittish math rock lunacy – featuring Mr Ian Breen who is nearly in as many bands as Hop Man Jr (nearly but not quite)

4. This lot were supposed to be playing at the Grunge thing at the Crescent on Friday but got pulled after I had recorded the show Instead of these on Friday at the Crescent you get these (who I have featured before):

5. From Macclesfield – they need a bass player and a drummer if anyone is interested (serious shortage of drummers around at the moment for some reason…..). Hopefully they will send me some more tracks as I rather like them.

6. Here’s a track from the new EP which is launched at the Kings Arms on May 9th (Kin made the video……very good…)

7.  Another new band from Salford (new to me anyway) describe themselves as “dirty blues” – more from them in future weeks.

8.  Another pop classic from the lovely Mutts from Moston……reminded me a bit of quality era Hall and Oates this – but without the nonsensical ululating of Mr Hall.

9. Inevitably biased towards this lot as they are all my chums but I have to say this is a bit of a pop classic from Jeff, Danielle and John. They will be gigging soon I hope, after a bit of a rest over the last few months.

10. New single from this young combo from Bolton.

11. The other band playing at the grunge gig on Friday – from Little Hulton (an area steeped in musical heritage) – very impressed by these lads although I had to edit out the naughty word.

12. From next door in Walkden Mr Von Black Paths sooths us with his electronic wizardry….a track from a forthcoming album which he is going to let us have in bits – the little tease.

13. The iconoclastic marriage of Frank Zappa, Black Flag and Yes encapsulated in a small bite sized chunk – from the forthcoming EP of the same name which will be launched on May 3rd at the Kings Arms as part of New Music Series (more of this on next weeks show).

14. Stunning track from a recent EP of the same name – marvellous ambient psychedelia….the companion CD “Lupus” is similarly wonderful…

15 From the last but one single – the new single arrived too late for me to feature it on this weeks show – so you will get it next week
