COSMIC SHAMBLES RELEASE DEBUT SINGLE IN SALFORD
 

Star date: 21st April 2018

GRUNGY PSYCHEDELIA FROM COSMIC SHAMBLES

The name of the band kind of describes the sound of Cosmic Shambles, a band that released its debut single, All Over Now, via Salford City Radio. The Shambles range from grungy to psychedelia, as Ian Leslie discovers...

The region's latest psychedelic band, Cosmic Shambles, released their eagerly awaited debut single, All Over Now, this month and it's the first instalment from a six song EP that explores a range of genres from grunge to garage.

Cosmic Shambles is the brainchild of lead singer Samuel Brunt, formerly of student Youthful Fancy. Proud of the industrial roots of their city, they describe themselves as 'the latest artist to be belched from the musical smog of Burgess' Manchester'... And it's all there on the track, with a pleasantly murky production that is reminiscent of the legendary Martin Hannett.

They straddle the musical spectrum from the psychedelia of the late sixties London, to the guttural depths of nineties Seattle. Yet, strangely Cosmic Shambles remain defiantly Northern with a sound that evokes the grimy imagery of Pierre Adolphe Vallette's Manchester.

All Over Now is a grungy affair that builds to a John Squire-esque solo that shimmers and offers the threat positivity..."The inspiration for the track is the challenge of a change" says Samuel whose family is from Salford and made sure the first airing of the track was on Salford City Radio "Originally it was a punk track and the challenge was to change it into something completely different and we think we did the job."

Samuel's clearly pleased with how well the songs have come together and is keen to see how they'll be received live..."The best thing about being in a band is the live performance, the interaction between you and your mates and the crowd is amazing" he explains.

All Over Now introduces the band as an interesting additional to a burgeoning psychedelic revival, as bands, including local favourites Crimsons and Salfordian art-rockers Manalishi, establish reputations as top live acts.

It's an exciting time for local music with Cosmic Shambles kick-starting their recording career with a uniquely edgy and trippy track. They have a sound that is simultaneously retro and undeniably relevant.

All Over Now is a promising opening statement with subtle odes to David Bowie, Radiohead and Brian Jonestown Massacre, while the band is definitely worth keeping an eye on.

COUNCIL UPS PRICE OF BUILE HILL MANSION PROJECT TO OVER 20MILLION AS PLANS MET WITH SCORN FROM COMMUNITY

Last night, a packed stormy meeting of the Claremont and Weaste Community Committee left Salford City Council in no doubt that any plans to build houses in Buile Hill Park as part of a deal to restore the Grade 2 listed Mansion will be met with fierce opposition.

Salford Council's Assistant Director of the Environment revealed to the meeting that Salford Red Devils Foundation, one of the driving partners of the project, hadn't even signed the controversial Memorandum of Understanding yet and that the 1.6million cost of restoring the Mansion would have to be met with 1million a year to sustain it, giving a figure of over 20million.
