As the UK went through a heatwave, temperatures certainly soared at The Bread Shed in Manchester’s city centre as The Beauty Witch played host to Mutoid Man. Back in September, the heavy rock and metal ‘supergroup’ were touring throughout the UK and Europe supporting their awesome new album Mutants which was released back in July through Sargent House.
Opening proceedings were Haggard Cat, a new name for me but the guitar and drum two-piece from Nottingham played an entertaining set of quirky rock ‘n’ roll who didn’t hide the fact they were beyond stoked to be supporting the headliners on select dates across this bleak, albeit it unusually hot, isle.
Then it was time for Mutoid Man who graced the stage like the seasoned veterans they are. Stephen Brodsky, aided and abetted by Ben Koller and Jeff Matz, despite the crippling heat, and Brodsky’s confusion as to why British venues rarely have air conditioning, performed a flawless set of old and new material. Their infectious metal and rock grooves got the enthusiastic crowd singing, chanting and jumping along with aplomb and below are the photos showing a snapshot from the awesome night.
