Dobb and Blundell exploded like a nail bomb into the subterranean noise scene. Since then – via 2014’s Scrape My Bones EP and two further singles, ‘Suck It Up’ and 2015’s thrilling double-header ‘Still Sick’ / ‘Blisters’ – the duo have refined, honed and focussed their fierce alternative rock sound into something harsher, leaner and altogether nastier.

The result is their Atomised, an unflinching, brutal dissection of what it means to be skint, frustrated, alienated and adrift in modern Britain. From tense, wired recent single ‘Crosses’ (“Cut it up and sell us cheap, crosses for eyes and sunken cheeks…”) to the sparse, bruised, hypnotic title track (“These broken hearts are never far from where we are…”) via stark, snub-nosed titles such as ‘Your Loss’, ‘Choke’ and ‘Erase You’, it’s a compelling snapshot of a young band over-dosing on volume, adrenaline, distortion and a shared passion for venomous, visceral, breath-stealing rock ‘n’ roll.

Atomised was recorded and mixed by Tom Peters at the Grand Studio in Clitheroe, Lancashire, and mastered at London’s legendary Abbey Road studios by Christian Wright (who has cut albums for the likes of Radiohead, Blur and Ed Sheeran).

Pinked Floyd

Saturday 30th September

Academy 3

This seven-piece tribute band have been amazing audiences all over the
Northwest with their engaging and energetic performance celebrating the
magical music of Pink Floyd. They have been especially praised for the
accuracy of their performance based on the studio versions of music
spanning the entire output of the Floyd from early days through to the
most recently released Endless River, with firm favourites Dark Side Of
The Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall particularly featured.
Lead by front-man Russell supported by Andrea’s astonishing vocals (her
Great Gig has been described as “the best I have heard since the release
of DSOTM”), attention to detail is the bye-word for Luke (keyboards and
effects), drummer Lee, Jack on bass, and Harry (guitar and sax), while you
might think it was David Gilmour himself on stage when you hear Alan’s
lead guitar riffs.

Some reactions to recent performances: 

 

“What a show!! I will
be coming to see these again. All round great performance. Have a cigar,
fellas & girl” 

(Jay Frazer)

 

“There was something very Floydish about
spending a summer's evening listening to Pink(ed) Floyd music. Never going
to see the real thing at Pompeii but this was a pretty good substitute!”
(David Evans) 

 

“My heroes will never be forgotten as long as you are on the
stage and that's from a 68 year-old roadie of the original PF! You are
another brick in the wall!" 

(David Larkin, former PF roadie)
