The Blinders/The Otherness : Manchester Live Rooms : Live Review

What better way to dump 2016 than to spend New years Eve hanging out with the future. The Blinders quite literally explode onto the stage of Manchester's newest venue with the combustable confidence of a young band who know how good they are. This is not arrogance. This is just knowing. I'm not the only one who is buzzing on the rush of their glorious high decibel brilliance - a couple of members of Cabbage are DJing tonight and yelling down my ear about The Blinders being he best young and in the UK and they are right.

New Artist of the day : The Blinders : thrilling and angry poetic guitars

Tense, terse and thrilling but also poetic and political, Manchester based Doncaster born, The Blinders are perhaps the most exciting young band in the country who somehow manage to combine all the best bits of punk rock, tripped out rushes, fifties twang and a very audible poetic anger that sees them sound like the band that would fit perfectly onto a very British 21st century festival made up of Fat White Family, Arctic Monkeys, Sleaford Mods, Slaves and Cabbage - they are very much the last piece of this new British jigsaw of bands that matter.
