THE SONAR YEN
The Lucida Console
Sat, January 15th 2005 @ Music Box, Manchester. Tickets £5, Doors 8pm.
Redjetson link were one of the most remarkable new acts to emerge in 2004. Debut single, a limited edition blue 12″ single with fellow visionaries Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies (YMSS) found fans in the ranks of Hope of the States, Bloc Party and Doves, who all got in touch to say how much they loved it, the record also received airplay from the likes of Steve Lamacq and Xfm's Claire Sturgess and John Kennedy.
To promote the release, the band toured with YMSS, appeared at the
prestigious Truck Records Truckfest and also signed with Drowned In Sound Records to record and release debut album “New General Catalogue”. Recorded with John Hannon at Mushroom studios and due for release on 24th Jauary 2005, the album promises to be one of the finest debut albums of the year.
Redjetson play epic, spellbinding post-rock, with subtle but dynamic sonic variations. This is helped by the presence of three guitarists, each of them playing differently to add texture and melodic body to the Redjetson sound. This sonic boldness has seen the band compared to the likes of Joy Division, Explosions in the Sky, British Sea Power, Low and Dirty Three.
Supported by the sonic majesty of local boys The Sonar Yen, this gig promises to be the first great Manchester gig of the year.
“In Redjetson lurks a grand, inspiring plan which transcends lazy
Mogwai/Radiohead comparisons and will soon place them as tribal leaders of an emerging group of bands not afraid of casting pop/rock conventions aside and forging a majestic, ethereal soundscape of their own… Lots of sound. Lots of volume. Lots of emotion. Epic is back- make room for it in your life.” bbc.co.uk
“… the beauty of debut release 'This City Moans' ebbs towards the
expansive climes of Hope of the States… Redjetson should officially be crowned the loudest f**kers ever.” rockfeedback.com
