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 Ha├žienda may have closed in 1997, but the Whip is sure as hell going to keep on dancing.
