Bud Rising & The Last Splash presents the Nine Black Alps with special guests: The Coronas and Carbon Copy.
Nine Black Alps: In the winter of 2003 Sam Forrest played an electric guitar on the third floor of a house in South Manchester.
During springtime he met David Jones in the Star and Garter pub where they talked about Sonic Youth, tape hiss and vinyl crackle.
That summer they asked James Galley about ride cymbals and if he could play drums and he said 'Yes.'.
Then the three of them asked Martin Cohen if he could play bass and he also said 'Yes.'.
Before long they had decided to call themselves Nine Black Alps.
Most of that autumn was spent practicing before aKouStik aNarKhy gave them their first show, Melodic Records gave them their first single and Island Records gave them their first album.
Nine Black Alps will release their second album 'Love/Hate' in early autumn 2007.
