There’s a veritable cornucopia of ace bands in Manchester and we picked a few top of the crop ones to bring you this lil’ mix for your Thursday. There’s garage, there’s prog nouveau, there’s strange electronica and there’s something about witnessing the end of the world in a low lit bar near Salford.
There might be some glaring omissions (by all means, Pins should be here), some might argue a few of these bands are not “proper Mancunian” (whatever the fuck that is) and I suspect there’ll be a couple of complaints and one star reviews of this. It matters not, we are not saying these are the best bands in lovely ol’ Manchester, we just like them a lot. And that’s the whole neta.
