When The Carbon Manual supported The Silver Apples at the Fleece in Bristol on 24.10.11, Will Salmon's ensuing LIve Review for CLASH Magazine had this to say about them:

"Go and see The Carbon Manual live.

Yes, I know that this is a Silver Apples review, and I’ll get to Simeon and his marvelous machines shortly, but for now, make sure you find a way to see this deliriously odd 3-piece. Their records are fine and all, but they lack the visceral impact of Jeremy Gluck's serial killer stage presence, the disarmingly tinny drum machine beat (a sound that recalls Throbbing Gristle in their 20 Jazz Funk Greats pomp) and the sense that the group has manifested in our reality from the Black Lodge. Barking poetry over guitar drones, they're immediately arresting and totally freaking brilliant.

So brilliant, in fact, that it feels like Silver Apples might struggle to match them – especially given that the Apples are now just one bloke in his early seventies."

Whether you were there or not, hear it today.
