about

Screw Britannia – where as many believe the days of Britpop and the likely lads and ladettes of “Cool Britannia” was just all hedonism and larking around, how quickly they forget for every upper, there is always a downer. The Mancunian Swing, Hollywoodfun Downstairs' debut album, very much captures the good and the grim...

Cue tracks that deal with booze, brawls and barbiturates (and stronger, as the listener lets the album course through their system); be it the psychedelic, robot-rock of singles “Colours of Soho” and “Fuzzy” or anthematic album opener “Is The City?”

However it's strength as an album lay in the sharp juxtaposition of emotions; elated to disgruntled. Disgruntled to despondent. Despondent to the typical fist-fight outside the club and subsequent post-pub activities no matter how extreme. It's bipolar, in a sense, but all testament to the mood swings we've all felt on a night out – they happen to be first hand experiences of vocalist/guitarist Kurt Williams.
