Peterloo Massacre

"Peterloo Massacre formed when, in the backroom of a gig in Manchester, Paul offered to remix some of Kin’s songs. Following one session, two new songs and been produced as well as the improvised method that has written all Peterloo Massacre’s material to date. The name came a bit later and emerged, not so much as a political stance but to commemorate its historical origin Peterloo Massacre and the city in which it occured. The bass sounds of Colin were elected early on in the bizarrely smooth progress of the band, adding to the already present mix of electronic, jazz and folk landscapes that Peterloo Massacre have the tendency to produce. One annum on and Peterloo Massacre have already been compared to Massive Attack, Portishead, Beruit, Orbital, Lamb, Thom Yorke and David Sylvian and are continuing to gig in Manchester and London while working on their first album, due for release in the new year."
