Afghan Sand Gang, Hailing from the new musical hotspot of Mossley, near Manchester, these have been slowly making their mark in the city and beyond with some very good releases, namely with most recent release An Electronic Lexicon of Stiff, Grounded Beats and Ethereal, Ascending fog. ‘Glistener’, a swooning piece of electronica which is well worth a listen.

With their debut album ‘Nihilistic Glamour Shots’ fast approaching, Mossley indie rockers Cabbage have released a new track, Preach to the Converted. It follows previous singles ‘Celebration of a disease’, ‘Gibralter Ape’ and the current, 6Music playlisted ‘Arms of Pleonexia’. It’s full of (suprisingly enough) nihilistic post-punk energy, almost horror show theatrical in its accompanyment, while over the top the vocals bark out the message, and the singalong chorus.

Some fast and furious rock ‘n’ roll riffs are delivered here on ‘Mr. Brown’, the debut single from Proletariat.

Released last April, it is the first cut from the Mossley, Manchester band’s debut EP ‘Always The Same’, A live favourite, ‘Mr. Brown’ offers some blistering punk guitar riffs that augment the sharp grungy vocals that could have come straight from the 70s, mixed with a dose of Noughties’ Slaves.

In a recent interview, vocalist James Cummins said of the song, “‘Mr. Brown’ is the demon that lives in all of us,” adding: “A lot of people think that it’s about heroin, but I can’t say that, at the age of 20, any of us have delved into it so it’s definitely not about that.”
