Mani introduced the The Coral onstage in Salford last night (July 17), before declaring that their new LP 'Butterfly House' is the "best thing I've heard since the first [Stone] Roses album".

The Primal Scream and Freebass man took to the stage at the Lowry venue and declared that "the third summer of love is open".

He announced: "By way of outer space and Hoylake, please welcome my mates, the psychedelic scallies The Coral!"

The Liverpool band stuck to the same setlist that they played at their London gig earlier this week, showcasing a host of tracks from 'Butterfly House', which was released on Monday (July 12).

Recent single '1000 Years' was included in the set, along with other new tracks such as 'Green Is The Colour' and 'More Than A Lover'.

Meanwhile, fan favourite 'Dreaming Of You', the second song of their encore, sparked a mass stage invasion.

Explaining his platitudes for 'Butterfly House', Mani said it is an "absolute masterpiece".

He continued: "I honestly think it's the best thing I've heard since the Roses' first album - it makes me wanna drop acid. I really mean it. Proper music made by top musicians."
