Retrograde : Manchester Music Scene

The latest show saw us explore the Manchester Music Scene – dubbed the Madchester movement by the press at the time.

We heard from bands such as New Order, 808 State and the Smiths – who kicked off the movement. We then looked a little at the big clubs that saw the performances of all the bands new to the scene and have since gone down in musical legend as being the go to music of choice – Happy Mondays, Oasis, The Stone Roses and James.

When putting the show together Iwas a little surprised to see bands like Chemical Brothers, Sub Sub, Pale Waves and Seahorses (all featured) also named as other bands from Manchester and part of the movement.

A little bit experimental, but we also heard from bands from across the UK who at the time were emerging as influential artists drawing on the Madchester scene, from their own home towns – bands like The Farm, Soup Dragons, Flowered Up and The Bridewell Taxis ( there is always one or two bands that come as a complete surprise for me, and a gem of a find – these being one of them)

Hope you enjoyed the show. If you missed it or want to list again then you can do so here ( see link below )
