Following a euphoric appearance at the Blackthorn Festival a couple of weeks ago, Manc psych trio Heavy Salad celebrate the launch of Battery Acid with a video and a couple of gigs in Manchester this weekend. Stuart Ralston has a listen and watches their new video.
Aiming to make the world a better and more colourful place, Heavy Salad fuse their love of surf, alternative rock, free jazz and psychedelia.
Out today, Battery Acid is a classic piece of pop; fresh as a spring morning and beautifully augmented with some lush brass, Battery Acid is exquisitely produced. The accompanying video has to be seen to be believed.
Brought together in late 2018, Heavy Salad members Allan Hutchison, Rob Glennie and Lee Mann share a Sonic vision. Allan Hutchison was the drummer from Manchester psychsters Lord Mongo, whilst singer and bassist Lee Mann played bass for the physical manifestation of the Moonlandingz.
In their own words, Heavy Salad “work in the space between perceived reality and the abyss of your mind. Melt yourself!”
Heavy Salad are out in support of Battery Acid, and helping a good cause tomorrow afternoon, playing the Indie Rocks Radio UK launch party at Jimmy’s HQ(Manchester), sharing their cosmic vibes at 3.30pm. All money from the event goes to the Andy’s Man Club charity. The show is followed by another appearance tomorrow evening, across town, to play with friends The Maitlands at Manchester Academy 3. Also on the bill are Black Sonic Revolver, Aced and Dylan Murphy. Doors open at 7pm. They continue to spread their love, peace and harmony with additional Manchester shows on Saturday August 24th (Whiskey Jar) and Friday November 22nd (Night and Day).
