One of our all-time favourite combination of humans have announced their third album and a Manchester based release show to go along with it! Durham’s dynamic duo ONSIND are back with “We Wilt, We Bloom” out on 17th November through Specialist Subject Records and we’ll be throwing a celebration at Partisan in Manchester on Friday 24th November.
It’s no secret that we love Apologies, I Have None more than most bands around. They’ve played countless times for us, consistently released music of the highest quality (albeit very slowly) and always been fantastic people to work with.
It was nice having a little break over the Summer, then ending that with a brilliant gig with Slaughter Beach, Dog at the start of September. There’s lots more on their way now! Continue reading
As the venue for the Slaughter Beach, Dog is a new one – here’s some information!
Partisan is a space for independent, community led, DIY and cultural based projects in Manchester. It’s located at 19 Cheetham Hill Rd, Manchester, M4 4FY, just next to the Snooker Centre and the entrance to the gig room (basement) is on Park Street.
Partisan has great potential for Manchester and we encourage everyone to sign up as members as it’s important we support the few music venues we have left after seeing a lot close in the last couple of years.
Obviously, like all venues – you can’t bring in your own booze. So here are the drinks prices!
Wine £3 / £3.5 / £4
Spirit/Mixers £3 / £4 (dbl)
Soft drinks £1
We can’t wait to host the first gig ever at Partisan and it’s set to be a bloody lovely evening with Slaughter Beach, Dog / Nervus / Parker Lee. Tickets will be available on the door for £12, £10 advance until Saturday from HERE.
Jake Ewald from our Philly phavourites in Modern Baseball has a solo project called Slaughter Beach, Dog and this September it’s coming to the UK for a couple of shows in London and Manchester. Continue reading
With just a few days to go, and a General Election, Manchfester 4.5 is coming quick.
Unfortunately we’ve been hit with some mega bad luck in the forms of Broadbay, Hot Mass and Pale Kids all having to drop out, but a shining light is there in the fact we’ve been able to add Bloodmines to proceedings and also start around 4pm!
Advance tickets are £10 (£15 charity) in advance and will be available until Friday, then it’ll be £12 on the door on Saturday. Plenty of space on the door.
To celebrate Moving North’s 100th show on Saturday we’ve got a couple of band-on-band interviews to whet your appetitives. One will be Kamikaze Girls vs. Hot Mass but before that we’ve got old friends Throwing Stuff and Sam Russo grilling each other…
SR: Sam Russo
TS: Throwing Stuff (KK: Kieran, AM: Alun, JC: Jamie, BS: Ben) Continue reading
The first Moving North gig happened on 21st March 2010 at Kro Bar – fast forward seven years and we’re quickly approaching #100!
Apologies, I Have None are a band that got me into this little punk rock bubble, meeting them outside The Gaslight Anthem’s first ever UK show at ULU in London where Dan gave me a copy of their first EP ‘Done‘, which was probably the 5th or 6th copy I would own. Since then they’ve gone from a two-piece to a full band and they released their first album ‘London‘ which – i think it’s fair to say – is close to legendary status for a UK band to release songs like that. Then undergoing another line-up change when Dan left and releasing ‘Black Everything‘ which I bloody loved and most recently ‘Pharmacie‘ which is an incredible work of music – so far above tonnes of other bands making records at the moment. Apologies, I Have None have always been head and shoulders lyrically above most others, I think Josh is my favourite songwriter around.
They’ve not played Manchester since supporting The Front Bottoms in December, and not headlined since September so to have them back is long overdue, and to have them headlining the 100th Moving North gig is pretty awesome on a personal level, and even better on a broader level because they’re fucking great and you all get to watch them too.
They’re playing Gullivers on Saturday 10th June as part of Manchfester 4.5 which is also Moving North’s 100th Gig! Also on the line-up are Sam Russo (FULL BAND), Hot Mass, Kamikaze Girls, Broadbay, Throwing Stuff, Happy Accidents, Pale Kids, Crystal Piss and Aerial Salad. More info on all these siiiiick bands on the way shortly. Get your tickets.
