Shameless plug alert!

Do drag yourselves along to the Castle Hotel, Manchester on Saturday night to catch the very wonderful Modern Sound Library gig.

Modern Sound Library, as the name suggests, draw influence from a wide range of sources. The Manchester based band are Haydn Ruffley (formerly of Bamboo Soul), Andy Slaney and Russ Wood, who got together just over a year ago to create instrumental music inspired by 70s library music (the kind used to soundtrack such TV classics as ‘The Sweeney’), Spaghetti Westerns and Serge Gainsbourg. The band developed this template to encompass songs that reflect a shared love of classic rock n’ roll, 60s garage, soul and funk.

This limited edition 5 track EP showcases the diverse range of the bands music and includes remixes by Monsieur Le Menthe and the highly acclaimed Shawn Lee. The EP is on sale in Piccadilly Records and at Fat City Records, both are on Oldham Street, Manchester. The EP is priced at £3 and is also available for sale at the gigs.
