Say you saw them first at Band on the Wall. In 2011 over 130 artists from across the UK and beyond entered the Ticketwall New Music Competition. This was then whittled down by a panel of music industry judges and now New Manchester Review presents the 4 top bands live at this very special concert. We reckon these artists are really going places – come down and judge for yourself at what promises to be a brilliant night. Free entry so just turn up, get a drink and enjoy.

Hot Beat Repeat are a two-man outfit that sounds like ten using electronics, drums, guitar, loop pedal and sheer talent to make the kind of sound you don’t hear everyday. Apparently, after the dancing is over at their gigs, it isn’t unusual to hear someone ask, ‘How do they do that?’ A remark echoed by more than one of our panel of judges.
King Capisce are a fresh and exciting group of instrumentalists creating a contemporary voice that contains elements of modern jazz and post rock. From subtle beauty to full on wall of sound, King Capisce’s live sound is brimming with energy. A sound unmistakably their own while drawing comparisons to Mars Volta, Polar Bear, Jaga Jazzist and Acoustic Ladyland. Knockout.
Presuming Ed grew from a collection of home demos into a 5-piece band with its members from various villages in and around the Glastonbury area of central Somerset. With glorious, understated vocals and pastoral melodies embued with the soul of landscape they were written in, we loved this band.
Burleskimo are a 5-piece hip -hop/funk/rock fusion from the musical melting pot of Sheffield. Diverse in influence and style, yet an undeniably coherent force; they have been refreshing their local scene with their inimitable take on the hip-hop genre since 2010. Just when we thought there was nowhere else to twist and turn the hip hop genre along came Burleskimo. Let’s have some more.
