we’ve also got a load of merch, including our t-shirts and tote bags from michael’s ‘live at Spirit Studios’ EP – and ALSO a few tapes from The Cosmonaut Cassettes! any merch sold today will be sent out asap!
(ps, here’s two of these silly promo pictures we made for past Bandcamp Fridays. is this how you market music effectively?)
so many amazing artists got involved with us this year, even with all of the chaos that’s been brought our way. we’d love to tag them all but there must be hundreds!
so much was happening! we even put on a few socially distanced gigs on which were super lovely. a highlight for us was that gig with War Stripes at the start of the year – incredible band with a huge sound
we’ve had so much planned and so much came to nothing, but nevertheless we keep on two releases by Adam Carpenter Music and four by michael webster too.. we’re looking forward to the new year!
a huge thank you to all the artists who have got involved with us, and anyone who has checked out any of the features or streams we’ve been putting on. you the best
hopefully we’ll be back out there, smashing out gigs open mics and releases on the regular real soon! see you all at a gig in 2021

he’s a singer-songwriter from Cumbria and we’ve had him play our open mics and he’s becoming a real fixture across the Manchester music scene 🙃 he’s a real good songwriter and his latest single ‘Think On This’ shows his talent spectacularly! 👊
you can find his single on Spotify here – go drop him a like and support upcoming artists! 🍞
in the light of the current crisis, with all the venues closing, pubs shutting, gigs being cancelled there’s a hugely amazing response from the online music community, in livestreams, releases and the sort! 🙂
we’re trying to gather a load of Manchester indie musicians content in our group, Bread Social – the response we’ve been having is incredible and well worth checking out! 🥰
this isn’t a decision we’ve made lightly, but due to current circumstances we think it’s best! make sure you go and like James Carline and michael webster to keep up to date with any information they release! 🙂
it’s such a shame that one of our busiest periods of gigs have all been ruined by the spread of this pandemic! once this has all gone over, make sure you go out to every local gig you can 🍞
we’ve not taken this decision lightly, but our Tiny Changes fundraising event this weekend has been postponed due to the current climate 😞
there’s been growing concern amongst artists involved about the morality of asking people to come down and potentially risking their health / other’s health just to come to a gig – especially as Lions Den Bar Deansgate have taken the precaution of shutting for the indefinite future 👽
