Mossley isn’t home to much. One of the steepest slopes on a non-league football pitch that we’ve ever seen and that’s about it.

Out of such a humble location comes the exquisite racket that is Afghan Sand Gang. Genre-defying stuff, they coined the term ‘kraut dance’ and you immediately see where they’re coming from. We’re reminded of Peace among others, but there’s so much going on that singling one thing out feels like short-changing you, dear reader. Mantra is the stand-out track from the EP Machine Music which is out now.
