DESIGNER MAGAZINE PRESENTS...FOX FORCE FIVE @ MANCHESTER ARNDALE
Formed in late 2007 from the ashes of less illustrious outfits, Fox Force Five's eloquent songcraft is set to blaze a trail through the UK music scene. The Pictures & Puzzles EP stands this Manchester band apart from the current dirge of landfill Indie and pretentious identikit Electro. Fox Force Five boast deftly woven songs played by hungry young men who mean every last drop.
Last year was largely spent honing these talents in the live arena. A hometown debut at Danny McNamara's Aftershow club night was followed impressively by a strongly attended Sunday evening slot at the city's fledgling MAPS Festival. The band's raucous first London appearance at Alan McGee's Death Disco in November was preceded by an emphatic support slot with The Music in October.
Pictures & Puzzles EP
Recorded with Martin Coogan and Yves Altana in late autumn 2008, the Pictures & Puzzles EP combines this raw excitement with a deftness of touch which allows the songs to do the talking. Influences from Echo & The Bunneymen and The Shins are in evidence alongside Neil Young and The Doors because, like all quality bands, Fox Force Five have great record collections.
7pm @ Halle Square (near the old Disney Store)
