Love & Disaster (side)If you’re a regular reader of the There Goes The Fear, you’ll be down with how exciting Manchester is for us right now. It’s a hub of musical amazement, knocking out soon-to-be-huge bands like tasty hot cakes. So, I guess you’ll understand how thrilled we were this week when we got an e-mail telling us about an E.P which is set to showcase this mass of awesomeness upon an upcoming sparkly 10″ vinyl next January.

Titled Love and Disaster 1, the E.P, which shall also be released digitally, is said to be a “collaborative effort by the people and artists that are going to make Manchester a focal point for new music in 2010”. Featuring Airship, Dutch Uncles, Jo Rose, Delphic and Everything Everything, this is one HELL of compilation – in fact this shiny treasure of a record is practically here to shed light on Britain’s undoubtedly Mancunian-led musical future.

From the tender, Grizzly Bear-esque ballads of Jo Rose, to the jerked-up indie of Dutch Uncles (‘OCDUC’, the band’s song which is featured on the E.P, showcases a piano riff which I swear is ripped from Tay Zonday’s Chocolate Rain), to the epic summer riffs of Airship and finally, the digitally suave hit that is Delphic remixed by Everything Everything (I know I know what a combination), this E.P is pretty set on blowing your ears off with it’s brilliance. MINT!

You can pre-order the ‘Love and Disaster 1’ 10″ vinyl now. The E.P is released January 11th.
