I just realized that Working For a Nuclear Free City, a Manchester band I never really took notice of until today, is playing Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn tonight (March 8, 2008) before heading down to Austin to play SXSW next week....
Original members Phil Kay ("production" and keyboard) and Gary McClure (guitar) formed as a studio entity in 1999; WFANFC began performing live in 2004, after adding drummer Jon Kay and bassist Ed Hulme to the group. Having previously released material in the United Kingdom, its debut American release, "Businessmen & Ghosts", came out in November 2007. [Wikipedia]Pitchfork likes them and they sound pretty good. Videos and tour dates below....
