MP3 At 3PM: The Whip

thewhip366Bruce Carter and Danny Saville, half of Manchester’s the Whip, already experienced a brief brush with fame back in 2003 in their previous electro-rock outfit Nylon Pylon. The Whip is their chance to revisit their ’80s Mancunian influences with thick electronic beats intertwined with the thump of bass and drums (think a less emotionally fraught New Order). Check out “Trash” from the band’s 2008 release X Marks Destination (on Southern Friend) or catch them on their current tour with Late Of The Pier and Deadmau5. The Haçienda may have closed in 1997, but the Whip is sure as hell going to keep on dancing.
