Album Launch Date Announced!

Roll up! Roll up!

We're finally releasing our album! YAASSS! We would be honoured if you could come join the party at THE FIRST CHOP BREWING ARM where we'll be playing songs from our album along with a few T&M HITS with our full eight piece band on 24th September!

Long standing features of Manchester's music circuit, Taylor & the Mason (Becky Taylor and Sally Mason) have created an energetic and distinctive acoustic live act. At their Debut Album Launch, they are proud to introduce their full band, made up of their favourite musicians Lorna Blundell (drums) Stephen Sarsen (Bass) Tanah Stevens (Viola) Bob Goodman (Violin) Liz Pauline (B/V) and Corin Travis (B/V)

Their debut album is a dynamic production, recorded and mixed by The Travelling Band's Adam and Jo at Pinhole Studio. It features the both the full band, the rich, vibrant sound of their voices, and the duo in their stripped back acoustic finery. Their close-nit harmonies, chiming guitars and delicate melodies compliment their heartfelt songs.


Poppycock was formed by Una Baines (former member of The Fall, Blue Orchids and latterly The Fates).

Working from Una's unique vision and prolific songbook, Poppycock have developed into an arresting and compelling live band. Drenched in a complex harmonic structure, Poppycock's pop songs sound both lovely and subversive all at once.


Acoustic singer/songwriter Stephen Ballinger has been a mainstay of the Manchester music scene for many years, and is a close peer and good friend of T&M. His delicately crafted songs, evocative of late 70s americana, will be supported by his own rocking band.


Spinning the best records from the 1960s. Vinyl only. Expect: 60s Girl Groups, Garage, 60s Pop, Northern Soul.

Food/Snakettes/Specially brewed T&M BEER will be available!


//FIRST CHOP BEWING ARM was established in 2012, when restauranteur, chef and life long beer lover Richard Garner discovered his flair for brewing craft ales. With many years experience of drinking and selling some of the worlds greatest beers, he decided he knew more than enough to turn his skills to making some. Crafty brewers during the day and live music venue at night, operating out of a railway arch in sunny salford with a secret garden.

We. Are. VERY excited about this.

Tickets £6 advance. £8 on the door.

More exciting stuff to be announced VERY SOON! Keep your eyes peeeeled.....
