Unless you’re going to a festival then it’s unlikely that you will get 3 decent bands on one bill for the price of one on the same night, this however was the case this evening and the queues of punters lining up outside Manchester Academy to get in indicated many people were of the same opinion as me.

To some, this Rebellion weekend is their one outing a year; reliving their youth, having a holiday and shame upon them really, as
1/ They need to scrape their fat arses off the settee and see a ‘new’ live band once in a while; not just crawl out of the woodwork, dye their hair specially and dust down the old leather jacket for the occasion.
2/ Bands need people to see them, they need exposure and
3/ You only have one life, LIVE IT…!
