AKOUSTIK ANARKHY 8TH BIRTHDAY PARTY ***** TONIGHT ***** FRIDAY 26TH OCTOBER 2007

Seminal Manchester Party night & record label Akoustik Anarkhy (aA) celebrates it's 8th Birthday this autumn. Join the celebrations at The Star & Garter, Manchester for a party taking over the whole venue.

AUTOKAT - LIVE


Autokat are the trademark Akoustik Anarkhy band. Informed by the shadows of the city, the paranoia of urban life and the hangover of too much partying, they produce tense, turbulent, uplifting & melodic music. Following on the success of 3 super rare 7” singles their debut album ‘Late Night Shopping’ was released in March 2007 on Akoustik Anarkhy Recordings to richly deserved acclaim. Tokyo based Electronic label Third Ear loved the record so much they quickly signed the band up for Japan while their 4th UK Single ‘Innocence’, a driving pop delight, was Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6 Music Single Of The Week. Selective with their live shows, full houses from a fervent following are now common. October 26th’s aA 8th Birthday Party performance promises to be something special.


WORKING FOR A NUCLEAR FREE CITY - LIVE



Working For A Nuclear Free City are a fantastic heady mix of psychedelia, krautrock and electronica. They released their debut album on one of aA’s favourite labels – fellow Manc independent Melodic. September 2007 saw them get a double album release under their belts state side with 'Businessmen & Ghosts' a mix of old & new tracks on U.S label Deaf, Dumb & Blind.

LA PALS - LIVE

LA Pals make glorious shimmering pop with blasts of plain & simple noise. Evocative of childhood holidays & lost afternoons in the garden. Brand new to aA & changing their number from show to show. Check out the magic on their myspace.
