Green Onions

    Booker T & The M.G's 'Green Onions' plus bonus tracks, pressed on limited edition 180g green vinyl.

    A seminal r&b instrumental album, 'Green Onions' was the 1962 debut by Booker T. & the M.G.'s on Stax Records. It reached number 33 on the pop album chart in the month of release and the title single was a worldwide hit that has since been covered by dozens of artists, including Georgie Fame, Graham Bond, The Blues Brothers, The Ventures, Tom Petty, The Shadows, Mongo Santamaría, Deep Purple, Byron Lee, Mike Bloomfeld & Al Cooper, Count Basie, and Henry Mancini to name just a few. The album was also included in Robert Dimery's, "1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You die."

    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!

    Onions

    Picking Up Pieces

      Onions are Jim, Martin and Chris, three urban dandies from Withington, Manchester. With a penchant for writing upbeat no-nonsense guitar pop, they formed in the glorious summer of 2005. Already in the short two years together, Onions have played Glastonbury Festival and had one of their hits played on the main stages between acts and subsequently released on a Glastonbury compilation CD nationwide. Prior to this, Onions have supported the likes of Mystery Jets and Jim Noir, and headlined the Euro-Culture festival in Manchester. In addition, Onions have worked in coordination with Channel M on a regular basis to promote their releases, videos, gigs and their ravishing personalities.

      The Red Onions

      Live Wire

        A brand new EP from Southern California's explosive Red Onions. A hyper-charged blast-out of Stooges-fueled punk rock, delivered with tight rhythms, powerful riffs, tons of adrenaline, and plenty of destruction in mind.
