About this item

Long time friends and established tour compatriots on the Manchester scene – this isn't the first time Onions and The Generalissimos have found themselves shouldered together. Occupying either side of a limited edition, special release 7" – the two impossibly energetic, infectiously buoyant and unashamedly poppy singles are guaranteed to do battle for your attention.
The Onions sound is forged from Jim's catalogue of Tamla seven inches, Martin's wealth of 80's rock double live CDs, Chris' plethora of (legally) downloaded jazz classics mixed with the reasoning that music should be about having a damn fun time and just plain enjoying it!
The Generalissimos honed their own skewed version of pop music over several years in a South Manchester basement, producing several albums worth of home recorded material under various pseudonyms along the way. After recruiting Ted in late 2008 with a remit to provide 'keyboards and weird synth noises' they are now making the colourful, harmony laced, occasionally confounding, but most importantly fun music they have always aimed at!
