A few facts about Money, Manchester’s brightest, youngest and probably uneasiest new things:
1) They’ve had a load of different names since half-emerging 18 months ago. These include Youth, Books and Meke Menete.

3) Singer Jamie Lee appeared naked on the front of their debut release, released via fine local independent Sways Records.
*Sod all until now, that is. The band joined Facebook on Monday, peppering their page with their back catalogue to date, and some details of a few French gigs this February.

Check the below song ‘Boredom’ from their December gig for Now Wave, which really kicks into action around the four minute mark, and imagine what the band could do with a few more gigs under their belt:
