Please read our last update:
We are primarily a music based webzine with a select team of conscientious writers, reviewers and photographers, all with different levels of experience, but the glue which holds us all together is that we love music with a passion and want to share our views with you and discover new music in the process.
We have conducted interviews, review live shows, festivals, theatre, events, exhibitions, review new music releases, review the latest music related books, and the occasional special features. The Mudkiss team are not just interested in talking to the music makers, we also relish the opportunity to mingle with artists, poets, writers, tattooists, designers, and photographers. We love outrageously interesting people, unsung shakers, movers & groovers, the weird, wonderful, worldly wise, tinged with a touch of anarchy and rebellion.
Mudkiss Photography is another string to our bow, which is another diversion by our Editor Mel. Check out her full photo sets here: We endeavour to photograph all the shows we review. We may offer to photograph you to accompany one of our selective in depth and juicy interviews.We can get a bit like that, we like to get right into your soul. We could also arrange a photoshoot with your band or model, or even photograph your gig, or an event, but this would need to be discussed further by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to our own research, and personal interests we have worked alongside some of the finest PR & record labels around (too numerous to mention here).
We have been lucky enough to have press accreditation for several great music festivals: Louder Than Words festival, Damanation, Bingley Live 2013, Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia, Parklife Festival, Salford Music festival, Rebellion Punk Festival, Boomtown Fair, Liverpool Sound City, Leeds Live, Cambridge Folk Festival, Dot To Dot, Nice & Sleazy, Chester Rocks, Constellations Festival Leeds, Hop Farm Festival, Ben & Jerry's Double Scoop Festival, Cloud 9 festival, Haigh Music Festival, Rochdale Feelgood Festival, Bingley Music Live, and Warrington Music Festival.
Ok, enough of that lets introduce you to the main players....
CO - FOUNDER
Not forgetting our Lorraine (the face on the Mudkiss banner - the MUD in Mud - kiss) who originally teamed up with Mel to create Mudkiss Fanzine on the social networking site Myspace. Mel progressed this to website format and the rest is history. Lorraine indulged her love of expressive writing, in her own inimitable fashion, with a heady cocktail of humour and honesty. Never to be ignored, vivid and passionate, a mix of old Hollywood glamour, the heart and soul of a rebel with colourful tattoos. She has been quiet on the writing front for a while but she still remains a great Mudkiss icon and friend...and the door is always open for her to return.
