Priests & Downtown Boys – Deaf Institute, Manchester – 20 Oct 2017

I missed the Downtown Boys in Edinburgh recently so was lucky enough to catch them supporting Priests in Manchester while travelling through. Downtown Boys play an enthusiastic modern punk noise, combining the sound and spirit of X-Ray Spex with political lyrics delivered with genuine passion and ferocity. Headliners Priests, while having more diverse punk roots are less convincing to my mind, but still good to watch and singer Katie sounds so like Kathleen Hanna in Bikini Kill days, all good for me!
