The Delaplains – The Ruby Lounge – 07/02/14

Unlike this blog suggests, I don’t go out to watch bands that often but on Friday I got the opportunity to go and see Manchester band The Delaplains at the Ruby Lounge. I wanted to get the chance to share this band as I think they are definitely worth a moment of your time.

The band performs almost as if you weren’t there, like you are looking in on a group of mates jamming along to a couple of tunes they just effortlessly throw out. That is the key with this group, it all just seems so simple, like they don’t even have to think about it and it sounds and looks fucking great.

Personally, I think its takes a lot of balls for a band like The Delaplains to do what they do these days. They have no gimmicks or hipster pretences, they rely solely on their song writing and it works – it works very well as their melodies are infectious.

The band’s new EP is called The Other You and features personal favourite ‘Sheena’s Always Late’. You can buy it on 7” Vinyl at Vinyl Revival on Thomas Street, Northern Quarter (or order it here and you can also download from ITunes…. DO IT, you won’t regret it.


Its back to all things soul and disco this weekend with Disco in Furness at The Drawing Room in Barrow. Me and the fantastic Colin Wall will be manning the decks until the early hours of the morn. Here is one for all the Barrovians to get you in the mood.
