Rock n Reel and The Tony Wilson Experience

Check out Issue 10 of Rock n Reel - this one above - as my review of the Levs at Manchester Apollo is included, as well as a very psychedelic advert by a certain band called Air Cav :)

The Tony Wilson Experience last weekend was fab. I didn't quite make the 24hours and left for home at 8am, but it was a jam packed 20 hours - full of thought provoking discussion between the audience, the handpicked 'talent', and the 'experienced'. Think it's going to be a regular event from now on so watch this space...

Result!


I've been chosen to take part in this weekend's Tony Wilson Experience: 'Reification'. It's a 24hour long conversation about the creative industries and will take place in Urbis and Cathedral Gardens with some of the very best - Radcliffe and Maconie, Peter Hook, Matt Greenhalgh, Alan McGee, etc.

The organisers picked 200 'young talent' who had previously applied through the website -and that's me! Now I've just got to pluck up courage to go up to people with our promo and to talk to them about my writing...

When fans discuss your review...

... it's interesting how they react. I do exactly the same when I read the reviews of my own band. And it's fine when they make assumptions about where I go when I watch music, what music I listen to generally, whether I'm paid or not. I put myself and my opinions in that position. That's fine.

But when they make a blatant comment just because I happen to be female? Well, you just wouldn't say it about a bloke, would you? (Apart from the fact that it wouldn't make sense... ha ha) But you know what I mean!!

They're essentially saying that my music taste depends on my hormones and whether I'm on my period. Hilarious. They may as well hark back to Victorian times and say that I'm 'hysterical.'

My New Favourite Band...

... is Babel. And here's the living proof:
