Wednesday 12th September at Banquet Records, 6:00pm
Just after the release of their new album, Boston Manor return to the shop.
Following on from their incredible and critically acclaimed debut full length Be Nothing, the Blackpool alt-rockers are back in Kingston for an all ages set in the shop to celebrate the release of Welcome To The Neighbourhood. Branching well out from their pop-punk roots, the newer songs are an energised blend of alt-rock soaked in darkness and melancholy. We're big fans and you should be too, make sure you check this lot out if you're into the likes of The Wonder Years, Black Foxxes, Movements, Elder Brother or Knuckle Puck.
In the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s, Blackpool was this booming town. It was a holiday destination, a place where you can go to forget all your troubles and now things here are just so f*cked up – there are huge drug problems and a 40 per cent unemployment rate in the winter. It was once this beautiful thing and it’s become a little bit broken."
But the theme is also laced with hope. “I’m just trying to draw attention to a few issues,” continues Henry. “The things that are important to my generation are just so trivial in my eyes, but who am I to say? I can’t really offer any immediate solutions, but I can try to throw a bucket of cold water on some of my peers, to just get them to feel more and think more and not be so apathetic.”
In-store Grade B.
