There’s this interesting energy as you walk down St. Marks Place in NYC. Although the spots that once defined this famous stretch like Trash and Vaudeville are gone; a hint of the old school, punk’d out NY of past still lingers in the shadows.
Listening to Manchester’s PINS is like taking a trip back to that time. When guitars rattled your soul and the reason you were wearing a biker jacket was not to make a fashion statement, but because you were ready to hit the Lower East Side and get messed up (or mess someone else up).
Although that scene has faded and vibey riffs have given way to bleeps and bloops; it’s always reenergizing when someone like PINS comes along to make you want to light up a cigarette, throw on that jacket and bring some character back into NYC.
