MANCHESTER GIGS IN MUSIC: April 2012 Pt.1


Can this be right? A gig by Jandek in Manchester this month? Indeed it is. An ultra-rare appearance by the ultra-elusive outsider folk-blues musician put on by a partnership of enterprising promoters Buried Bones and MIE Music. For all his shadowy elusiveness and absence of biographical information, Jandek has an extensive discography – 50 albums and counting. For this live show, '
The Representative of Corwood Industries' will be joined by drummer Alex Nielson (of Trembling Bells and numerous collaborations) and experimental guitarist Richard Youngs. Tickets here.

In a cruel clash on the same Saturday is the 11th Carefully Planned All Dayer, a mini-fest of DIY pop surprises headlined by the excellent indie power-pop trio Standard Fare. Two artists from Carefully Planned on the mixtape below including wunderkind Kiran Leonard (see earlier this week) with the astonishing ‘Port-AinĂ©’. Tickets here.
