Joseph Coward – The Castle Hotel // 11th August 2012

I love new things with a retro tinge. It’s the closest we can get to living in the past! So hearing Joseph Coward made my little heart flutter. A new artist laced with the Manchester indie scene of the late 80s/early 90s to create something quite wonderful. But don’t expect your local Smiths cover band! Catch Coward at this intimate venue while you can.
