Black Rivers Live in Session

Black Rivers O'Leary

Black Rivers were live in session on Dermot O’Leary yesterday (Sat Oct 25th) where they performed a brilliant live version of The Forest, a track taken from the debut album. It sounds fab live! They also did a beautiful version of the vastly underrated track Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometime.

The second Black Rivers single Voyager 1 is now available to purchase at all good digital outlets in the UK. Overseas from what I can tell, only iTunes has it!

Black Rivers Manchester Gorilla Setlist & Review

black rivers setlist Manc Gorilla Oct 14

Thanks to gibbo for throwing the punches to get the setlist! :)

The Manchester Evening News reviewed the gig. The general feeling is that its a good start, the new songs sound good though Jez is still getting used to being the ‘frontman’, though I’m sure that will come as they get more shows under their belt.

Applescal has remixed Voyager 1, sounds pretty good too..

Trojan Horse

May I point you in the direction of an excellent debut lp that was recently released by Trojan Horse of Salford.

It is a genuinely excellent album, well worth checking out. They will win the award for the best artwork of the year, if you get a copy you will know what I mean.

In other news, Black Rivers are out on tour this week. Hope to bring you some coverage of the shows as I get it.  Jez was recently interviewed by 5mag? Some interesting comments.. Doves are currently on ‘ice’ as we know, the name Black Rivers is taken from a lyric by the Fall!
