Story by Tony:
Wow - I get to post the first Courteeners item.
You should been there at the Academy 3 last night for a landmark gig. A young Middleton band with the looks, the choons, the riffs, the laff-out-loud street poetry lyrics and the local fanbase to take it all the way. Sure, the Arctics and the Libertines are in there- but so are the Smiths, the Roses and, I'd say, the Wedding Present. (Something in the water in Middleton maybe?)
The place was chocca. Crowd surfing, stage diving, mass singalongs - and all this at the gig to launch their first single "Cavorting".
I'm the worst tipster ever but I'd bet my last quid on these guys making it big time. Don't let me down lads! Manchester expects.
