There was once a time when the Mancunian music scene was dominated wholeheartedly by testosterone fuelled lads trying their damnedest to become the next Oasis. Of course, scratching beneath the surface revealed a wealth of artists doing things a little differently but for the most part, middle of the road indie was par for the course. Fortunately it seems the tide has changed and the musical milieu of Manchester is no longer underpinned by bad attitudes and questionable hairstyles, in fact, it seems bands have taken the onus upon themselves to keep their scene from stagnating and as a result Manchester is once again a hotbed for exciting emerging talent.
