    ‘What’s The Alternative?… THIS IS!’ Reject corporate pop and revel in independence as another band make their Manchester debut with ‘What’s The Alternative?…’ - The Remnants take a trip north from the south coast. “They pick up their instruments and start to play, and suddenly you are transported back decades into the era of the Beatles; meet The Remnants. Pete Hall (vocals, guitar and harmonica), Laur Fricker (vocals and guitar), Kit Lavis (vocals and guitar), Andy Byron (bass) and Rhys Masters (drums), make up the band, formed in 2013. The Remnants recently signed to TRNS Records, which hosts Transmission club nights at The Winchester in Bournemouth. They have played all over the South-West and London; including the famous Dublin Castle in London. With their set-list often including Beatles covers as well as original songs, you're sure to be able to sing along. Their own songs are brilliant, masterfully written by Laur and Pete, they have brilliant hooks, clever lyrics and are similar in sound to early Beatles tracks. Jangly guitars, clear vocals and pure passion are three elements that The Remnants really have nailed.” Poppy Jeffrey in Gesture Magazine https://www.facebook.com/TheRemnants1 http://www.trnsrecords.com/the-remnants.html https://soundcloud.com/trns-records In addition host band The Speed Of Sound bring their own brand of psychedelia that somehow manages to float and crunch simultaneously; colliding the 1960’s with now. Purveyors of original independent Manchester music since 1989 with various lineup changes along the way but always retaining the same guitar/vocal combination of founder John Armstrong, still with Kevin Roache, the bands longest serving bass player. "A cool mix of punk and The Byrds 5th Dimension LP" - LORD LITTER Radio DJ Berlin Germany "Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hear a merger between Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and Lou Reed?... The vocals are dark and melancholy - they have an intense quality that makes me stop everything I'm doing and just listen. The music surrounding the words pulls me along like a tide, making me drift away from reality without feeling that I have an option" MUSICVSTHEWORLD BLOG "Quite a modern folk rock feel with a definite dash of 80's post punk/alt thrown in... vocally there is a hint of Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, bit of Jagger, great sound. Musically the sound alternates between Rock; verging on heavy/psych to alt/punk with some great instrumentation along the way." MADFERRETS MUSICBLOG http://thespeedofsounduk.blogspot.co.uk/ http://www.reverbnation.com/thespeedofsound http://thespeedofsound.bandcamp.com/ Both bands will play 40 minute sets. £10 (£6 with union card)
