Emanuel and the Fear think you’re going to like “The Janus Mirror”. Based on what scholars have decoded from the Mayan calendar regarding our current 2012th year, with the world being on the cusp of the great pivot of the current age, “The Janus Mirror” is a record about change. It deals with the the over-filled human experience in todays silicone world. “The Janus Mirror” is our eyes, it is the point between the world outside and the world in our minds. It is about a two-headed monster. It’s also about 44 minutes long.
Emanuel and the Fear have bemused worldwide press such as The Guardian, Paste, Rolling Stone (Germany), Paper Magazine, NME, Village Voice, and Vice (Germany).
Emanuel and the Fear will be touring Europe and the UK in support of “The Janus Mirror”. They will tour the US when they get their shit together.

DENIS JONES -With his second album, “Red + Yellow =” (released October 2010 on Manchester independent label Humble Soul), Denis has at last managed to capture the intensity of his live performances in a studio environment, working with various engineers and finalising the recording and mixing at Airtight Studios with Tom Knott (The Earlies).
The album was preceded by a limited edition 10″ EP featuring remixes by Paddy Steer and Graham Massey.
Denis Jones has, over the last three years, developed a show-stopping live performance based around the core of his exceptional and unique guitar-playing style and rich, soulful voice. Utilising a loop station and all manner of samplers and effects, Denis creates vast, complex orchestrations of beat-box rhythms, multi-layered vocals and other-wordly sounds which veer from subtle heart-wrenching folk and blues to heavy bass-driven electronica.
“scuzzy Mancunian blues at its richest and, most intriguing.” The Guardian
“logical, eardrum-massaging, heart-stirring sonic harmony” Drowned In Sound
