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.
