"A Manchester band, formed by 2 brothers and already being hailed by some as the next big thing to come out of the city. Sound like we've stepped back in time? We've not, this is The Mandigans. The songs are catchy, indie pop with choruses you can't get out of your head. Live they are tighter and more accomplished than bands double their age (the average Mandigan age is 15). Taking on El Policia as the under 18 Manchester band to watch this should be the year for the 6 boys" Guestlist Music
