The Butchers (Manchester)

The Butchers are a 4 piece band from Manchester (UK). After a five year break from the gigging scene they reformed in 2008 to work on new material. The result of this is a powerful mix of raw punky searing guitar/synths driven by uncompromising heavy bass and drums. With the sometimes obscure, but always evocative lyrics provided by Bob Clowrey, this band are anything but your typical northern band.

Her Polish mum and German dad had met in Jordan (where their jobs had brought them) so English became her second mother tongue and the Arab Emirates soon her second home and happiest childhood memories.
