The View @ Ibiza Rocks

Blurring the boundary between fantasy and reality is the Manumission mode of operation, but it backfired spectacularly last Friday at Bar M when a staged fight got out of hand and a brawl erupted, spilling out into the street. Oh dear, Manumission hits the front pages again.

But the publicity didn't stop a decent crowd turning out last night for to enjoy another night of communal new band appreciation. The unknown, unsigned and Underground Heroes were first up, followed by the View from Scotland who got to number 15 in the UK single charts with 'Wasted Little Djs', and the Welsh Automatic, who've been gigging solidly and cracked the top five a couple of months back.

We're relieved to report that apart from a bit of beer throwing there were no violent incidents, tho Alex Pennie from the headlining Automatic thrashed his keyboard pitilessly.

Earlier the shaggy and innocuous-looking lead singer of the View, Kyle Falconer (above right), startled all unfamiliar with his knock-you-down howl that rivals Zep legend Robert Plant's for sheer power.
