The best Manchester bands of all time

The expression “Manchester music” itself has become tautological, given the activity with which this city generates significant groups. An almost impossible feat is to fit the unique Manchester scene of the 70s, 80s, 90s and the present into one list. But we did it.

Ah, there it is. But the interview, however, turned out to be entertaining. Perhaps that is why.

The problem of the famous millennium indie groups is that they often do not want to listen to their new material. As a rule, after a couple of first releases nothing more convincing appears. What are The Hives doing? Or the vines? There is probably a reason that no one knows the answers to these questions. But it is also clear that for some this fate has passed. MGMT, for example, released their best songs after “Time Continue reading
