Mark Radcliffe’s sidekick Paul Langley will be clicking play on his iPod in his DJ set before Manchester rock n roll 5 piece Dirty Laces kick off proceedings with their brash raw guitar-led indie rock. Then Colin White’s very own High Society take to the stage in a rare outing to perform their mellowed out guitar summer vibes.

The headline act for the night are Manchester supergroup, the criminally underrated One Summer. Formed after the break up of The High (featuring Andy Couzens of The Stone Roses), One Summer on their recorded material alone deserved a major record deal, one which never came due to the band and management having the time of their lives living on the road and purely having fun playing to their devoted crowds, but out of the blue after 20 odd years they had a 3 track 12” release on Record Store Day release, with stunning artwork by famed Hacienda artist Trevor Johnson.

One Summer are John Matthews (vocals, Turning Blue, The High), Carl Wolstenholme (bass, The Rainkings, Turning Blue), Stephen Fitzpatrick (guitar/backing vox, The Seaside) and Chris Goodwin (drums, The Waterfront, Inspiral Carpets, The Mill, The Buzzcocks FOC, The High, Electronic). Even though this will be their first gig in over 20 years we are promised fireworks and a set not to miss!

  1. Yeah, VR were not involved in any Roses promotional activity whatsoever. They merely had some posters in their doorway, because they get paid by a local poster distibution company to allow posters to be put up. The posters were everywhere around Manchester – it’s just a small number of morons who thought VR were involved with the band and they didn’t nothing to dispell that. Funnily enough. They had no idea what was happening with the band, other than what the guy from the poster company told them.

  2. Johnno are you still working in the Kanin with Rita love
