Bah, It Is Grim Up North....

Annoyingly, the rather ace sounding NME New Music Tour 2006 (Great name guys - how many tense editorial meetings did that take?) isn't really coming round these parts - the nearest it ventures to my hometown is Sheffield - where, oddly, iForward Russia! are not on the bill for what would be the nearest thing they had to a home gig. Very strange.

Still, I'll have to send Chad out to review the Manchester date. The lineup of Boy Kill Boy, iForward Russia!, The Long Blondes and The Automatic does sound pretty enticing.

The dates are....

Bristol University (May 6)*
Cardiff University (7)*
Wolverhampton Wulfrun (8)*
Glasgow QMU (10)
Middlesbrough Empire (11)
Manchester University (12)
Portsmouth Pyramid (14)
Leicester University (15)
Cambridge Junction (16)
Norwich UEA (18)
Sheffield Leadmill (19) (No Forward Russia)
Liverpool Carling Academy (20)
Oxford Brookes University (23)
London Electric Ballroom (24)
*Howling Bells replace the Long Blondes
