Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10
Cast: Dafydd Shalders, Benjamin Longthorne, Barney Thompson.
Stewart Campbell’s Absolute Certainty at the Tribeca Bar is part of the Manchester Fringe events. The venue is situated in the LGBT quarter around Sackville Street in Manchester. It is an urban tale of an 18-year-old Finn (Dafydd Shalders) who is finishing off his ‘A’ Levels under the watchful eye of his elder brother, the club surfing Dean (Barney Thompson) and his ever-present work mate Lee (Benjamin Longthorne).
The Blind Hearts are a hillbilly rabble of 5 scruffy young guitar pickin’, harmony-hollerin’, bourbon-swiggin’ folk-blues-country yokels from Manchester, London and Japan.
The new single Crying Shame was recorded at The Charlatans’ Big Mushroom studio, produced by Charlatans guitarist Mark Collins and mixed by Jim Spencer (Johnny Marr, New Order, The Charlatans, Liam Gallagher, The Cribs.) The band have always fought against the odds. Just as national radio picked up on the buzz – debut single (Oh Lord and I) Keep On Losing was pick of the week on Absolute Radio’s Sunday Night Music Club show – drummer J. Hirano was forced to return to his native Japan for almost 2 years.
