Manchester’s Furrowed Forehead have a popularity for anarchic, unorthodox exhibits rooted in a completely DIY aesthetic. Punk to the core with out being punks they lurch irreverently by way of a mishmash of glam, artwork, new wave, goth, 60s storage and even people influences. Their songs and elegance are notoriously troublesome to pigeonhole.

Current reviewers have in contrast them to lovechild of Mark E Smith/The Cramps and likewise the unholy spawn of Jarvis Cocker and 70s glam. Personally I heard Jilted John and Sparks in there too, which I suppose simply proves it’s laborious to label them.

The laborious working band have a couple of dates within the diary, however am positive there will likely be extra to come back. Hold ‘em peeled…
