A first live performance is as good an excuse as any, so when 21 year old Tom Harris aka Harris Crumb told me he was playing his first show at Prostitutes + Policemen @ Sankey's in Manchester, I had to give him a shout out.
Especially when he's sharing a bill with the likes of Count Of Monte Crystal + Sinden, Crookers and Mary-Anne Hobbs on 30th May.
He's been producing and remixing for a few years now, it's only since studying at the School Of Sound in Manchester that he's finally ventured in to the live arena, and what a place to start!
Having grown up with the Late of the pier boys, he's also collaborated with Sam Eastgate aka LA Priest under the moniker LA Crumb.
Two of his best works are a remix of Heartbeat.Flicker.Line for his Zarcorp pals, and the other is his edit of my favourite Beatles songs - Tommorow Never Knows, which can be found on his Myspace.
