Had a great time last night watching Doves performing their homecoming gig at the GMEX in Manchester. They were supported by Delphic and Super Furry Animals. After the gig we popped over to a new club ‘Sound Control’ for Delphic’s post gig DJ set. Spent about 15 minutes talking to James about manchester, music industry, their influences and some of our other favourite bands. He was warm, friendly and under no illusions about the music biz. Hope to see them again soon. The morning after while we go down to get breakfast at the Jury’s Inn I bumped into Gruff from SFA and said hello. Quite a bizarre but very enjoyable experience. Looking forward to see Pet Shop Boys on Sunday if the weather permits it.
