New Manchester Review and Finders Keepers Records team up to bring you a psyched-out freakish summer party, featuring two of the Finders Keepers/Twisted Nerve label’s finest artists The Liftmen Sam & The Plants live, plus Finders Keepers and New Manchester Review DJs spinning a mix of international psych, funk, freak-rock and rare grooves exclusively on vinyl til the early hours.

Celebrating the release of their brand new LP on Twisted Nerve, Luftwaffe Pond, The Liftmen are taking inspiration from bands like Gang Of Four and The Bush Tetras, while at points presenting an almost jazzy serenity recalling the Chicago school of the nineties… yet just as often this is gleefully ruptured by fuzzed-out motorik detours and Deerhoof-like thrusts of sonic overdrive. Mind-bending and unmissable!

Sam & The Plants, another fine artist in the Finders Keepers stable, are an inspiring acid/psych folk outfit who create otherworldly folk music reminiscent of tripped-out film soundtracks such as The Wicker Man and Valerie & Her Week of Wonders, as well as the avant-garde folk artists of the 60s including The Incredible String Band, John Fahey and Pentangle.

All this plus Finders Keepers and New Manchester Review DJs spinning tunes until late into the night:

Andy Votel / Doug Shipton / David Orphan / Luke J Murray [Finders Keepers / Twisted Nerve]

Simon Webbon [New Manchester Review / Abstract Groove / Band on the Wall]


This event will begin at 9pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open earlier for drinks and good times.
