sweat and toil in a city called Manchester. They drink in pubs, eat supermarket meal deals and play musical instruments.
Formed in late 2017, Blanketman have gigged extensively throughout Manchester performing their original brand of restless-legged post-punk. The band have established a strong reputation within the city's thriving underground scene earning them a feature in the Manchester Evening News that stated the band are “breathing new life into 70s/80s post-punk”. Recently, the bands early release Sick & Tired was played on BBC Radio 1 by Huw Stephens on recommendation from Blossoms’ Tom Ogden after seeing a video of the band performing live.
This summer, Blanketman played their first major festival slot at Kendal Calling 2019 and are set to release a new single in the coming months."Standout track 5 Days A Week is an angry anticonformist rant with a terrific sing-along chorus, while Flip It Over combines the lean paucity of a Martin Hannett production with 2019 indie-pop sensibility- it should only be a matter of time before Blanketman’s glorious post-punk racket connects with a mass audience”
