Brudenell Social Club
8pm / Free Entry
1 August 2013
Warm Widow are the most underrated band in Manchester. Yes, so they’ve had a bit of press for their “Widower” album but seriously - close our eyes for a minute and we could be back at last weekend’s ATP where abrasive but tuneful underground guitar noise is the order of the day, and only the very best: they could easily stand their ground on a bill with the likes of Les Savy Fav; rather oddly, they sound more than anything like a seriously Anglophile American or Canadian alternative rock band. Only you don’t want to close your eyes, because Lianne Steinberg is just incredible to watch. I’ve long had this theory that you only even notice a drummer if they are really excellent or really shit - and guess what, she’s not shit. The rest of the evening is spent metaphorically kicking ourselves for not having paid them more attention….'
Noise-rock in the key of party with AC/DC worshipping riffage. Somehow they have managed to blag themsleves onto another British Wildlife billing. Fresh from playing the cockpit dressed as chefs / millionaires / hotdogs and supporting Hawk Eyes at their 'This Is What This Is' release party. Hopefully we will see these strapping young lads release party all over the brudenell come August 1st.
Aeroplane Flies High
Fuzzy Guitar noise pop how you like it from Liverpool. Sounding somewhere in between Part Chimp and Smashing Pumpkins. Really catchy riffs, great songs, there is little to dislike about this trio de triumph.
Stilts (formerly Effluence)
Stilts are a trio from the dark depths of the North-west, formerly known as Effluence. They describe their music as G L O O M, a mixture of dark doomy riffs, fuzzy noise, crude melodies and post punk tendencies. Like Qotsa being nailed by the Dead Kennedys and Nirvana.
