THE BLANK TAPES
The new album by The Blank Tapes, ‘Look into the Light’ is Matt Adams and company’s most hard rocking, psychedelic album yet features the phenomenal drumming of Shaughnessy Starr of Frankie & The Witch Fingers and Hoover III with some grooving bass playing by Jason Cirimele of Guantanamo Baywatch and The Donkeys. Veronica Bianqui sings back up vocals on every song as well. The new LP features studio versions of 3 songs played live on the Jam In The Van video series, as well as 4 brand new songs with Adams’ most ambitious guitar shredding yet. Co-mixed by Nathan Sabatino of Jim James & Dr. Dog. The album art drawn was also drawn by Matt Adams.
Last July The Blank Tapes also released “Super Bloom” EP on Australia’s Brown Truck Records with 6 tracks of “heady, fuzzed-out psychedelic jams that twist, contort, and reach for the stratospheres” Impose Magazine
New album “Look into the Light” is out on Oct. 26 2019 on Nomad Eel Records.

THE BIG PEACH
“That’s the magic of The Big Peach. They have the audience tapping their feet and dancing to songs they’ve only just heard.”
Formed in 2017, The Big Peach combine 60’s nostalgia with modern groove and the results are simply irresistible. With one foot in the past but their eyes on the future the band have quickly become an endearing part of Manchester’s current music scene. Their music is a real slice of pristine songwriting and there’s something in it for everyone but especially if you’re a fan of swirling guitar riffs, hummable melodies, foot tapping rhythms and good time Rock ‘n’ Roll then The Peach is the fruit for you.
In 2018 the quirky quintet put out a self-titled debut album and this year they released the infectious single ‘All You Gotta Do Is Ask’ via independent label Sour Grapes Records.
So far they have supported a number of touring acts including Californian cats Triptides, Burger Records alumni Levitation Room, |Aussie psyche artists Wesley Fuller and The Dandelion, and of course local favourites The Blinders. Last year they headlined when in Manchester festival and took part at Stockport’s Blackthorn festival whilst this year they are on the bill for the established Bingley weekender in August 2019.
