MYOHO link “Sweet Factory” ALBUM LAUNCH PARTY
Soul City Exile
Sunday, April 3rd 2005 @ Academy 3, Manchester. Tickets £5adv, Doors 7.30pm.
In just a few short months, Myoho have turned the idea of the typical Mancunian musical success story on its head. In the place of typical onstage detached ‘cool’, Myoho act like the unashamed pop stars they are sure to become, five balls of enthusiasm with no interest in studied aloofness. Instead of a mumbling, barely-tuneful frontman, Myoho boast a singer with a terrific soul bellow sounding closer to Memphis than Manchester. Myoho play a startlingly original and funky mix of pop, rock, dance and blues, refreshingly not conforming to the usual worthy, hip names to drop. Instead of the predictable half-empty gatherings of the chin-stroking-in-crowd; Myoho gigs are sell-out celebrations, a mass of dancing, smiling faces brought together from all walks of life in the name of having a good time.
Upping the celebration stakes further, Myoho announce a special Album Launch Party for the release of debut album ‘Sweet Factory’ on April 3rd. From a band more interested in being the next big thing than the next hip thing, it is the next step for a band set to write their own unique passage in Manchester’s rich musical history.
“… never before have I seen so many people dancing at a gig by an unsigned band… leave any prejudices or preconceptions you have behind and join this party- Stunning.” Glasswerk.co.uk
