MIMR Band Chat: Tinfoils

One of the brightest sparks in Manchester currently, Tinfoils are a flurry of garage-punk mayhem that is hard to shake off and they are ready to show off their blistering live show at Deco Records all dayer Pt.2 at Retro tomorrow!

MIMR spoke to the band about their year so far and what to expect from their set.

MIMR: Great to have you on the blog, safe to say it’s been a whirlwind time for the band recently, what’s the latest with you guys?

Tinfoils: Yeah, it’s been a bit mental! We’ve just supported Sheafs, that was a big one, been fans of them for a while. We had a bit of time off for the summer and it’s done us a load of good, wrote a lot of new tunes and just feel generally more energised. The majority of the most exciting things we’ve got coming up are unannounced so far to be honest, but expect to hear something about a big headliner and a potential foreign excursion soon.

MIMR:What’s been your most memorable gig so far?

Tinfoils: I’d say our most memorable gig so far was probably our single launch gig for our first single The Royal Baby Machine back in March at the Peer Hat in Manchester. First sell-out gig we ever played, and we’d organised it all ourselves so we were quite proud of that. Lineup was stonking, Chupa Cabra, Blanketman and The Pagans S.O.H, it was banging. Crowd was mental, people hanging off the roof and throwing themselves all over, absolutely loved it. Honourable mention goes to our joint headliner with our brothers in arms Springfield Elementary, which is definitely the sweatiest gig we’ve ever done.

MIMR: Your headlining Deco Records all dayer this weekend and playing with some good company too. What can we expect from your set?

Tinfoils: We’ll be playing mostly new songs actually! It’s gonna be a mix of older stuff and newer stuff, we like to keep the set different every time so people aren’t coming and watching the same gig every time. Basically so we don’t get too fucking boring. It’ll be quite shouty and that, should be a good do. Lineup is ace, particularly our mates Swine and The Red Stains! Looking forward to seeing Gravves and Huds, heard a lot about them.

MIMR: Are their any new bands out there that you recommend we check out?

Tinfoils: Yeah, there’s loads. I’m into Do Nothing at the minute, I think they’re decent. I like Feral Family from Sheffield and Ohmns from Liverpool, would like to do something with them at some point. Locally there’s quite a few new(er) bands that I’m a big fan of like Aria, Loose Articles, Furrowed Brow, Thee Window Earles, and tonnes of others. Manchester’s got some of the best music going at the minute.

MIMR: Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great time at all dayer gig, how can people follow you on social media?

Tinfoils: You can find us on Instagram, which we update most often, or Facebook and Twitter. We’ve got a website as well, which you can find here:


We’re on Spotify and YouTube and SoundCloud and all that wank, have a Google and you can’t go far wrong.
