Friendrock: Beat The Radar

Few record labels consistently impress me as much as Manchester’s Akoustik Anarkhy. Latest signings Beat The Radar just keep getting better, and better, and better with each passing day it seems. If you thought first single Telephone Conversation was good (and I really, really did) then you’re in for a real treat with this one. Beat The Radar have produced an absolutely perfect indie pop record. The sort of balls-out anthem that made bands like The Cribs famous. The sort of track that just makes you want to crank up the volume, jump about with your mates and have a beer. The sort of track that has “classic” written all over it. I’ve had this on repeat all evening and I just can’t see myself ever getting bored of it. I really hope it happens for them. The last band on aA that made me scream their name from the rooftops was the outstanding Autokat, that sadly never broke out much beyond the Manchester circuit. I really hope it happens for Beat The Radar, they’ve an album out next month and I’m very, very excited about it. They’re playing The Deaf Institute on November 13th. Grab your mates, have a beer and go fucking mental. 8/10 - Read it here

Beat The Radar: 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 (Akoustik Anarkhy)

This is a bit more like it. A subtle quickening of the pace to kick things off and Beat The Radar – previously unknown to TMM – have endeared themselves enough to come close to Little Comets’ single of the week crown. Any other week then their strangely-titled track would have been a favourite here, but it’s just lacking that little spark to carry it above this week’s releases.

Solid, Cribs-ish indie. Nice bass sound! (DB)

BEAT THE RADAR 18 19 20 21 22 8/10

Following equally hook-filled debut Conversation, here's a song comprising 202 seconds of riotous chorus that's as good as any heard all year.

Electric Banana
BEAT THE RADAR - 18 19 20 21 22

Manchester band Beat The Radar win the Electric Banana award for 'Stupidest Song Title 2009', but ignore that and you will discover a good little indie punk-pop band - like the Buzzcocks for the naughties. Here's a song comprising of 3 minutes of simple guitar fun that's almost as good as The Cribs. The new album To the City From The Sea arrives on 9th November and may be worth further investigation.

We also have a party coming up....
