Now in its eighth year, Sounds From The Other City is Salford's unique music happening that springs up at venues all around Chapel Street over one Bank Holiday Sunday.

You simply buy a ticket for £18, and swap it at Islington Mill on the day for a wristband which allows access to every show and party along the route. It's more an experience than a `festival' with all shades of music covered, most of which wouldn't be seen dead near a tv music channel.

There's so much to cover it's best to crawl the SFTOC website www.soundsfromtheothercity.com but here's a venue by venue guide…

FAT OUT 'TIL YOU PASS OUT at THE CRESCENT -`Sweet riffs and party beats' featuring 100% Beefcock and The Titsburster, Monster Island, Bad Hammer, Dead Sea Apes and Super Luxury – expect ear bursting electro distortion, flaming guitars and post punky vibes at this stage.

BAD UNCLE AND HEAR HERE at THE UNITED REFORM CHURCH - Other worldy? Experimental? Islet has created an original film soundtrack for this gig, while also appearing are Teeth of the Sea, Peepholes, Wode, Nasdaq, Well Wisher and Vei – the names kind of give it all away…

CHERYL at ISLINGTON MILL GALLERY - New York art collective described as `Dolly Parton meeting Alfred Hitchcock and Richard Simmons at Conwy'…often perform in cat masks.

BAD LANGUAGE at THE NEW OXFORD - Flash fictions, flying words, spoken rage and cagey goings on with Les Malheureux, Alabaster De Plume, Preventing Kharms, Bad Language editors JP Daly, Daniel Carpenter and Nici West, plus Tom Mason and David Hartley.
