Lowline - Lowline (2011)

Hailing from The south of the city the band formed in 2007 after a chance meeting at a Fall show. With a similar predeliction for Krautrock and Post-punk including The Chameleons, The Clash and Echo and The Bunnymen, the band soon won a reputation as ‘the black sheep’ of the Manchester music scene – eschewing traditional venues preferring to set-up their own shows in semi-derelict warehouses in Salford and Ancoats and winning a loyal fanbase in the process. Oasis producer Owen Morris soon caught the scent as did Roses / Primal Scream bassist Mani and The Verve’s Nick McCabe.

With two Morris produced, self-released, singles selling out by word of mouth; subsequent airplay by Radio one’s Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens, as well as playlists on XFM and 6Music; tours with The Enemy, The Happy Mondays and The Charlatans followed as did a burgeoning interest from record labels. The band then entered a stage of in-voluntary hiatus caused by simultaneous accidents to both guitarist Andy Hewitt and vocalist Robbie Rush resulting in hospital treatment to both. Left contemplating the band’s future; the members collectively decided to leave the UK for a hectic touring schedule of Europe, the proceeds of which were used to finance recording on their own terms.

A year later and away from the industry’s prying eyes Lowline now emerge fully charged and ready to unleash their debut album...
