Firstly, thanks to everyone who came out to the Apologies, I Have None / Hindsights show on Saturday night, how good was that! The Eagle Inn is a cracking little venue and all the bands were ace. That was Moving North’s penultimate show of the year, meaning one thing – we’ve got one left!

And what a line-up it is, Gnarwolves / Spraynard and Such Gold all on the same bill playing at Sound Control on Thursday 10th December. Continue reading

Apologies, I Have None + Hindsights


Not long to go now until our penultimate gig of the year and the line-up , if I do say so myself, is bloody brilliant. We’ve got two of the best bands in the country on a co-headline tour in Manchester (well, Salford) on a Saturday night.

Apologies, I Have None are a firm favourite in this city, having played here a number of times on headline and support slots while Hindsights were last seen a couple of months ago playing at A Carefully Planned Festival. Both bands are loud, dark and play with so much energy and honesty it’s fantastic. Continue reading

Sam Russo’s second full-length has just been released through the great folks at Specialist Subject Records and Red Scare Industries – we’re lucky enough to be hosting one of the three record release shows at the end of the month.

I fired some questions over to Sam about everything from the new record Greyhound Dreams, playing full band, supporting Dan Andriano and much more. Have a read. Continue reading

INTERVIEW: David Lee Burdon (Former Cell Mates)


I first saw Former Cell Mates when they were on tour with The Gaslight Anthem in 2008, they played the first ever TGA shows in this country in London, Manchester and Nottingham. I went to London and Nottingham, long before I’d moved to Manchester.

After the show, my brother and I waited around to say hi to the guys in TGA as we’d met them a while ago in Berlin. We bumped into a few other dudes hanging around and I was taking a photo of their group and Brian Fallon when this voice told me to jump in the photo and he’d take it, that was the voice of David Lee Burdon from Former Cell Mates.

Interview: Doe


Last year at Carefully Planned Festival, I finished off my weekend watching a delightful three-piece from dahn sarf in the form of Doe.

Doe play guitar driven (there’s two of them and a drummer) indie/punk/pop jams with infectious choruses and singalongs to make you smile, and think.

They were brilliant when we had the pleasure of getting them on a bill for the first time when they played with Prawn / Hindsights and now they’re coming back for Manchfester! I sent over a few questions and they were lovely enough to not ignore me and fire over some answer! Check ’em out… Continue reading

Punk Aid.

The only positive thing coming out of the horrifying scenes that we’re seeing at the moment across the Middle East and Europe is the actions of punks and others taking things upon themselves to deliver help, aid and distribution to those most in need during the worst humanitarian crisis since the second World War.

While our (barely) elected Government is reluctant to help out in any way, a number of grassroots operations have popped up to take matters into their own hands. People can drop off vital supplies such as food, clothes and bedding, or donate financially through a number of fundraising initiatives, these donations will then be transported to Calais to reach those most in need of our help.

I’ve seen a number of these refugee donation points pop up, and I thought it would be a good idea to have them all in one place as a reference to see what’s happening near where you live, what you can do to help and how to do it.
