A week of musical eclecticism!

Pushing the boundaries of music was the hallmark of this past week!

The Drop and The Skints - Manchester Academy
First up, The Skints....
Roots-rock-reggae delivered with passion by London band The Skints....





 


 Ably supported by another excellent London-based reggae combo the Drop .



If you're a reggae fan, check both these great bands out. We'd lost touch with the whole reggae scene in the last few years (to give you an idea how long it's been, we used to be regulars at the International and International 2 - both great Manchester venues now sadly long-gone). Reggae Fridays at The Band on the Wall (thankfully still going from strength to strength!) were also a firm favourite. On which note, a big thumbs-up to the Band on the Wall who've sent us freebie tickets to another reggae gig featuring Manchester dub-reggae band Jeramiah Ferrari and former Specials frontman and co-founder of Fun Boy 3 Neville Staple.

(This is a bit of a longer post than planned so for part two see next post!)
