about them that night, a sign that even though they were a rel­a­tively new band at the time, they seemed more than ready to go on to much big­ger things.

Car­son’s Bar was a great venue for emerg­ing bands, with the likes of Cat­fish and the Bot­tle­men, Blos­soms and Vi­ola Beach all grac­ing the stage there be­fore go­ing on to take the next step on the indie rock n roll lad­der, which is ex­actly where we now find No Hot Ashes.

This Satur­day (March 31) the band play at a sold out Manch­ester Academy 2, where 1,000 fans will pack out the venue to see one of the most talked about bands around.

Since form­ing just four years ago their mu­sic has had over one and a half mil­lion hits on spo­tify, fea­tured on prime­time BBC TV dra­mas and had a huge amount of ra­dio play on many na­tional ra­dio sta­tions, lead­ing the band to play at many pres­ti­gious mu­sic fes­ti­vals such as Isle Of Wight, Ken­dal Call­ing and Read­ing.

No Hot Ashes are a band who are des­tined to get big­ger and big­ger with ev­ery tour and ev­ery record they re­lease.

There have been many great quotes about the band’s style but my favourite is from Chris Hawkins at 6 Mu­sic: “Happy Mon­days meet Franz Fer­di­nand.”

With a style like that they can’t go wrong.

Re­cently signed to in­ter­na­tional book­ing agent 13 artistes, on a UK tour with SJM and with Manch­ester’s new mu­sic hero Mr Peeps as their man­ager, No Hot Ashes are set to be the North West’s new favourite indie sons.

Check them out, lis­ten to their mu­sic, and if you fancy get­ting to one of their gigs, you need to be quick.

Their time is now.

Stock­port born No Hot Ashes are tipped to be Manch­ester’s next big indie band
