Humberside rockers. unsigned but with a lot of praise heaped upon them by the metal press. A streak of glam. nihilistic song titles. Ramones and Lords OfThe New Church riffs — hey. sounds like Manic Street Preachers to us.
I Elephant Noise Bertie‘s. Merchant Street. 225 2002. A low-key showcase for the benefit of the record companies who have been hovering around without taking the plunge but without backing out either. Perhaps they‘ll be won over by recent adjustments. including two new backing singers.

I Bryan Adams, Extreme, Squeeze and Little Angels Celtic Park. £20 (reserved). £18.50 (unreserved pitch/terrace). Proving that it‘s easier to ﬂog an

Bryan grins and soldiers on sincerely. despite having to follow the hideous. all-too-mawkish rockers Extreme and the predictable Little Angels. Owing to freak weather conditions or something. someone‘s had the good taste but the bad idea ofadding Squeeze to the bill where their trim. confident pop will stand out a mile.
