THE OTHERS / NEW RHODES In The City, Dry Bar, Manchester 27 Oct 2006
In The City, the annual event that sees Manchester host the biggest city based music festival in the country, introduces both music lovers and industry officials to the best in new music and unsigned talent.You could say its England's very own mini SXSW!
There are a decent number of people watching as New Rhodes work their way through the best of their new album, but it's safe to say that most are there to pass the time until the true headliners of the night-The Others- take to the stage!
After an absence from the scene for a while, The Others return with new album 'Inward Parts'.From start to finish, fronted by the now infamous Dominic Masters- who spends more time in the crowd and on top of the speakers, than on the actual stage – they work there way through an almost perfect set list of old and new songs. They clearly know how to work the crowd, which by this time has surged forward and become a sweaty pit of hardcore fans that all seem to want to get as close to they band as they can! It has been a long time since I have been to a gig with as much atmosphere and attitude as this – without glow sticks, at least! Old favourites such as 'William' and 'Lackey' receive an incredible response, with everyone, as far as I can see, joining in. The new songs ('The Truth That Hurts', 'Thick As Thieves') have a different tone to them which makes it clear that the band have developed since they were last touring. The key to the shows success though is Dom; there are few leads that give out as much energy, intensity and 'give a shit' attitude as he does tonight. The Others are back and pretty soon, if tonight is anything to go by, everyone is going to know about it.
