    What's The Alternative?... THIS IS! Reject corporate pop and revel in true independence: Paris-based franco-american “pop moderniste” quintet French Boutik are truly original, with a unique vision of modern French pop where elegance and schizophrenia collide to generate a distinctive outfit of many harmonic faces. They take the 'moderniste' element of their tagline seriously and avoid retro déjà vu while still maintaining a clear nod to their 1960's influences. The result is a delightful and clever concoction of classic pop melodies, harmony drenched vocals, a soupçon of swirling organ, and sharp French and English lyrics -- the amusing and troubling sounds perfectly representing French Boutik's timely marriage of English and French pop. The songs are bilingual social portraits peppered with irony, and delivered with a sophistication worthy of their heroes The Kinks, Jacques Dutronc and XTC but firmly planted in the present. And Manchester's The Speed Of Sound continue to ply their original music that manages to cross the Velvet Underground with The Jam and Neil Young with Siouxsie & The Banshees in their own idiosyncratic manner. Both will play 40 minute sets Live from 9pm £10 (£6 concessions)
