Salford Music Scene – 17th May 2011

On this show you will find:

1 Joy Division – Atmosphere – The Best of Joy Division : bit of a theme on tonights show and three versions of this very song – thought I would do a bit of compare and contrast to see how the tune(age) differs with passing of the years.

2 Peter Hook and The Light  with Rowetta – Atmosphere – 11022011 : and thus here is the most up to date version of said classic – and you can catch Monty interviewing Mr Hook and Rowetta in his show on this occasion. See how good we are to you at Salford City Radio?

3 Neuron No – Saving the World – EP : more musical munificence from the titantic trio. Catch them at Mayfest on Saturday!

4 Death to the Strange – Drink and the Devil – Single : These guys beat the bejazus out of most of the so-called nu-folk wannabees you get on R6 and other such stations – they harmonise to perfection and they have the wonderful aural ambience of Mr Sewell floating in the ether behind them as well. Topping the bill at Mayfest and doing a charity gig on the same day.

5 Phil Davies and the Ninja Smoke Bombs  – Enid Blyton – Regulation Specification : significantly excellent lyrics with a melodic musical backbone and a very pleasant singing voice. Expect excellence and it will be exceeded. Also on the bill at Mayfest (did I mention it’s only a fiver?)

6 Rawcuss – John Travolta – Single : A “Radio Stars” for the 21st Century – possibly? Brash and not the least bit bashful. They are in the second round of a Supajam competition to play at Benicassim so give them your votes! Vote here……

7 Belle Vue  – With Glue – Belle Vue : as reviewed elsewhere in this blog -hyperintelligent math pop with a melodic angle and some great musicianship.

8 The Overeasies – Lock the Door – Reverbnation Track : rapidly growing as we speak – last time I saw them face to face there were three of them- now there are considerably more. Tunes keep appearing on what seems to be a daily basis and I would suggest thier own style is starting to emerge from the raft of influences in the band.

9 Peter Hook and The Light – Pictures – 11022011 : another tune(age) from the new EP and thanks to Mr Monty for the nod in this direction and….

10 Codeine – Atmosphere – A Means to an End : The Music of Joy Division : keeping with the “Atmospheric” theme (see how I did that) a reading of the aforementioned classic by the New York slowcore trio….an interesting if somewhat tense reading in keeping with Codeine’s methodology, as it were.

11 The Overeasies – Come Over Here – Reverbnation Track

12 Belle Vue – Quite Love – Belle Vue

13 Rawcuss -TV Fantasies – Single

14 Positronik – Give Me Some Passion – Demo Track : and to round things off another band on at Mayfest on Saturday and also performing their debut gig. A rather groovy website has been put together and gives some initial clues about the band.
