Reviews of My Side of the Mountain's live gigs

  • James from My Side of the Mountain at XFM X-Posure in the Night and Day for In the City, Manchester

    Sounds From The Other City
    Rovers Return - Salford

    April 2006

    “Keeping with the Rovers (since they do a lovely pint of Guinness), My Side of the Mountain provide some euphorically gothic sounds (as in church organ, not black hoodie) with some Granddaddy stylings thrown in. At times some loud/quiet dynamics and variety of pace evokes Mogwai, but somehow less sinister. With Bloc Party drums and a bit of Badly Drawn boy, they’re eclectic, to say the least. There’s more than a bit of Hope of the States on ‘Lost Pilot’ too.”BBC Manchester
