Saturday, November 30 – Naughties
The Stretford-based Manchester rock and roll band will be bringing their brand of ska/rockabilly to CYCM for the second time, many years after their first appearance.

Saturday, December 7 – Aziz Ibrahim
The former Stone Roses guitarist and Ian Brown collaborator is also a nice bloke. His website says: Years in Reggae bands, suited in Simply Red, funky in The Players, the only Asian in prog rockers ‘Asia’, briefly (as in hours) the only Muslim in ‘The Christians’, experimental with JBK, Yukihiro Takahashi, the h band and recently the Steven Wilson Band. Unlike many players his songwriting has been the key that shapes this musician e.g.numerous credits for Ian Brown, Paul Weller and Akala to name a few.
