ABOUT THIS ITEM
Manchester has turned out a few stunners over the years to both assault, and caress, the eardrums, not least the those five lads who stumbled out of the northern reaches in the early 90s and defined a decade of indie Britpop. (You'll no doubt remember who they were?) Daystar may prove to be the forerunners of the next wave to put the Manchester music scene back on the map.
Produced by Mansun engineer Ronnie Stone last year, "Slip And Dive" owes much of its style to a Sixties mod influence ( - as do the band themselves, based on evidence of the You Tube video for the single), wrapped up in a Nineties package, and delivered with present day panache and vibe. The guys have completed their debut album and are on the follow up now.
