Although I've never been to Manchester, whenever I think of it, silhouettes of great buildings belching smoke enters my brain. Now I know that it's not entirely an industrial city but I just can't shake off that cliched image.
Indie music from Manchester on the other hand is somewhat dark and industrial (listen to the Joy Division, WU LYF, Money and Fall tracks) but even that stereotype is not exactly true to it's word as a good number of psychedelic bands (Chemical Brothers, Inspiral Carpets, The Stone Roses) have emerged as well.
With this week's podcast, I tried to mix both the familiar Mancunian bands with some surprises and new groups. However I am gutted for leaving out quite a few names: Starsailor, Crispy Ambulance, Durutti Column and The Hollies. Hopefully these will definitely be included if there's a volume 2!
