Man Alive! It's Everything Everything but the kitchen sink - exclusive orchestral gigs just announced
Posted: 13th October 2010
Manchester's Everything Everything really did pack a lot of detail into their fabulous "Man Alive" album, released back in August. Listen carefully and all sorts of twitches, fidgets and quirks of a technological nature can be heard right across the 12 songs, adding facets and dimensions missing from most bands' sorry efforts these days.
Imagine what the bloody thing will sound like with a full orchestral arrangement behind it, coupled with that same performance being hosted at an exquisite venue. That's right, EE have hooked up with home-town orchestra Royal Northern College of Music as the Man Alive Ensemble to create a new arrangement and symphonic recital of the entire album, confirmed to be played in Manchester and London. Each track will be given the string-driven treatment with arrangements by David Coyle and Ben Cottrell, paired with the 13-piece ensemble.
The first gig, in Manchester, takes place at the RNCM itself on 13th December, followed by a 'Blue Flowers' Christmas club-night appearance on 15th December at the Union Chapel, two sumptuous and ornate venues for an intriguing experiment.
Tickets are on sale for Manchester right now at just £15, while London goes on sale at 9am on Friday at £20. Get in!
