18 outbursts of unreleased testosterone from the 1970’s Mancunian rock underground.

Unissued studio demos and rare tracks of hard rock, hairy funk, heavy, prog from the toughest unknown rock groups of Greater Manchester, England MAN CHEST HAIR liberates 17 heroic outbursts of rare and unreleased Northern testosterone from Mancunian pops awkward coming of age purple period. The hairy funk and hard rock foundations of Manc punk and metal laid down by the self-sufficient post-beat unsignables.

MAN CHEST HAIR documents the missing stink between The Hollies, The Hermits, Hamburg, Hannett and Hotlegs with a HEAVY emphasis on dirty drums and filthy fuzz from beneath the black rainclouds of Greater Manchester. Ahead of their time, under the radar and over the heads of the trembling music industry these glorious live action trailblazers crank the ignition of the eclectic Mancunian metal machine, engines blazing between 10cc and full throttle Motorheads.

MAN CHEST HAIR boasts the seldom recorded, unshaven sounds of the Mancunian “independent” industry from the future capital of “indie” music. Cruising via prog, psych, funk, glam and hard rock with no toilet breaks or refuels along the way.

This is the sound of do or die DIY from beneath the rainy city sky documenting the trouble behind the stubble, the aftershave sting that followed and the good humoured bromantic chippy dinners that united Madchester before it was clinically diagnosed.
