IMPACT DATE: 9th December 2013
LABEL: Queen Street Records
Smiths legend Johnny Marr has thrown his support behind them, John Robb has named them “the best new band in Manchester” and having starred in Dr Martens‘ current advertising campaign, Manchester’s The Minx have announced their new thrill-a-minute single, (Can You Find) My Head?
Having scored radio play for their previous single from the likes of Steve Lamacq – who compared them to Buzzcocks and The Undertones – and being invited by Xfm to play their Spike Island event, The Minx are aiming higher than ever with their latest blast of power-pop.
And (Can You Find) My Head is accompanied by a brilliant new video; all scatter-gun visuals, kaleidoscopic colours and frenzied gig footage shot around Manchester on charity-shop Hi-8 cameras.
The band have just announced their biggest headline gig yet, at Sound Control on Saturday 7th December, to coincide with the single’s release – and having sold out every single show they’ve played in Manchester, it’s set to be another occasion for their rabid fanbase to pack out the venue and get stuck in to yet another raucous set from their favourite band.
