And as of this week, email@example.com will be starting a manchester edition, beginning with a full In the City preview. Drop him a mail if you'd like a copy. I don't have a rant in me this week, too busy sorting out our Drowned in The City show on Sunday @ Big Hands. Plug. Hint. Plug. Plug.

*gig of the week* @ Club Fandango, Dublin Castle i OWN KiNGS.....what can i say? One of my favourite unsigned bands at the moment playing their 9th gig as a headline show, having already supported their mates Seafood and played a dis show with Jetplane Landing. Sounding like a shot of sunshine blasting through my head, shooting out through my dancing to Bohemian Rapsody hips and transfixing my eyes on the singer who looks like he's consumed 5 rockstars and they're kicking their way out of his wee torso to get out
