man & the echo Vile As You Want / I Don't Give a Fuck What You Reckon (7", £6.95)label: 1965
Man & The Echo skewer the ridiculousness of modern life over a background of 1960s-inspired pop-rock. Beneath those charming melodies lies frontman Gaz Robert’s sharp political wit. • In 2015 Man & The Echo released three singles, toured relentlessly and made festival appearances at The Isle Of Wight festival and alongside Billy Bragg at Glastonbury, as well as being invited to play live on Radio 4’s Loose Ends. They received critical praise for their first offerings and in particular their second single ‘All Right’ which was supported again by Steve Lamacq on 6Music and was made Absolute Radio’s Single Of The Week, Of The Year. • 2016 promises to be even busier for the 4-piece, who are currently holed up in their Warrington headquarters working on their debut album with highly sought producer Neil Comber (Django Django, M.I.A.). • “Something of an instant hit at Lamacq towers… it hits you immediately right from the opening lines… if that doesn’t suggest someone with a taste of songwriting imagination I don’t know what does.” - Steve Lamacq, 6Music.
