band based in manchester, started in 2005ish. Here is an extract
from a review by Pleasure Avalanche magazine
on 20th Feb 2005:
'Amida were openers for the Sunday 20th date, and jolly good they
were. Once again the self-confessed
blurb on the flyer was woefully inaccurate, "alt-country"
they are not; "Pavementesque" they are. This was Amida's
second ever gig, not that the band's tightness
and clarity would illustrate this.
Winding vocal melodies and sloppy strumming abound!'
