Manchester Evening News profile

23 Nov, 2006

Omerta is profiled in The Manchester Evening News. Neil Turvin:

We want to make sure that we are not a band that will simply fall through the cracks. Clint Boon has said that if he was to play with another Manchester band it would be with us. And when Mike Joyce of The Smiths heard one of our tracks he said ‘that’s one of the best songs I’ve ever heard. When Shaun Ryder first heard one of our tracks ‘Synchronise Your Smiles’ he put his head in his hands and said ‘I can’t believe this band is unsigned’. I am sure that we can do it. Our band of supporters is growing by the week and we have got 13,000 My Space friends. And every gig is a big event.
