Dont miss out on the chance to see some of the best new independent music in the North, at one of the UKs most iconic live music venues. With just under four weeks ahead of the Music from A1M Showcase "Music From The north" at the iconic band on the wall, we spotlight the amazing two piece Mancunian/welsh out fit Glove - Here at A1M records we are delighted to have them on the bill. They are joined by The Moods + Pleasures + Falling Ghost, with DJ set from Salford City Radio,s Steve Doyle.
Fresh from some commanding live performances and recent slot supporting Gang of Four, National music pundit John Robb, says "Glove are going to be a big deal next year, please check them out now whilst they are still a best kept secret!"
Louder Than War Review - Glove , two women, a thousand ideas. I must admit bias here as having seen them play before six months ago, I was so blown away that I signed them on the spot and will be releasing their debut single on Louder Than War records next spring. Watching them tonight is a reaffirmation of this decision with the big PA underlining their potential.
They may have a simple set up but it's so damn effective, one tom tom and a bass and a guitar swapped sound to create idiosyncratic, post punk shapes to deliver Patti Smith style poetic skree over the top. It takes you back to that post punk period were there were no rules and everything was there to be grabbed but Glove have given it a 21st century urgency and intensity with great vocals and wild eyed belief and songs that flow their own internal logic switching from urgent rushes of sound to a captivating, long sprawling piece that is a ten minute obtuse but catchy bass line and this dense thicket of dark lyrical shapes that really draw you in.
