SUZUKI METHOD IN THE FACTORY
 

Star date: 11th October 2010 

SUZUKI METHOD EP, TOUR AND FACTORY FOUNDATION LAUNCH

Salford band Suzuki Method have released a four track debut EP on the new Factory Foundation Recordings label, and are currently on a national tour which ends up back in these parts at the Ruby Lounge on 29th October.

No-one can accuse Suzuki Method of trying to be hip and glam as their debut EP is released. The accompanying video for the track What We Do's No Secret features local actor James Foster playing a down-on-his-luck alky swigging from a giant bottle of cheap cider, raving at the world, taking on hoodies and finally getting chucked out The King's Arms. Classy stuff.

The Suzuki ethics fit perfectly with those of their label, Factory Foundation Recordings, formed by Esther O'Callaghan and fired from the spirit of Tony Wilson. Factory aims to break new music from Greater Manchester, with half the profits from sales going to help local kids get work and training in the creative industries, while the band get the other half directly.

The Suzuki EP should certainly bring in some sales via a national tour that stretches from London to Edinburgh, via Bristol, Liverpool, Leeds and Brighton, before ending at the Ruby Lounge in Manchester on 29th October.

The four tracks see the Suzukis driving through dance and rock territory, skidding on electro bends en route with Adam Leishman's vociferous vocals steering it along.

Purple Aki is a rush of insistent guitars and energetic vocals, with oriental keys in its ignition; while Anytime You Want mixes harmonies and hacienda somewhere on the funky border of a big rock production.

When you've seen the video of James Foster tramping the empty late night streets of Salford, you get the sonic picture of What We Do's No Secret. And the final tune, Balthamos, is unpure electro rock with its foot down on the freeways of indie pop.

The Suzuki Method EP is definitely BIG and open and polished to a Salford shine. You can hear a cocktail of 80s and 90s soundscapes in there if you want. Or just sit back, open the 21st century sunroof and enjoy the ride.

The Suzuki Method EP is currently on release by Factory Foundation Recordings.

There's a few vinyl copies left or downloads at ITunes etc…
