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.

The Adicts

The Adicts are an English Punk rock band from Ipswich, Suffolk. They began life as the Afterbirth & The Pinz, in their hometown of Ipswich in late 1975. Popular in the 1980s, they were often in the indie charts at that time.
They soon changed their name to The Adicts and became known for their distinctive Clockwork Orange 'Droog' image, which, along with their urgent, uptempo music and light-hearted lyrics, helped set them very much apart from the rest of the genre. Temporary 1980s name changes to ADX and FUN ADICTS, for a children's TV appearance, also occurred.
