alias kid Revolt to Revolt (CD, £12.50)label: 359 Music
“The album is amazing. They remind me of The Clash. The record is radio friendly and they are punk live.” – Alan McGee. Only six months after forming, Manchester band Alias Kid were signed to 359 Music by industry mogul Alan McGee. The band fuses 60s style anthems with an eclectic mix of influences from the 1970s to the present day, creating a sound that is at once familiar and yet still unique. The band recorded their debut album in The Gorbals Sound Ltd Studio in Glasgow with Paul Quinn (Teenage Fanclub/Soup Dragons) and Kevin Burleigh (Glasvegas/Simple Minds). Revolt To Revolt boasts the singles ‘Dirty Soul’, ‘Zara Henna’ and ‘Messiah’. In under a year as a band, Alias Kid have risen from obscurity to headline shows in Manchester and Liverpool, secured national airplay on XFM and have won plaudits from those within the music industry. Alias Kid have joined the roster of the iconic Creation Management, home to The Jesus and Mary Chain and Wilko Johnson. “Alan McGee has a great new band, Alias Kid, who slide between the 60's and 70's with ease. I just hope they all say no to Downing Street.” - Andrew ‘Loog’ Oldham.
