    ROCKABILLY RANTS BY COCO FIERCE

Grab yourself a brew,  and perhaps we can tempt you to a slice of cake, whilst you gently browse through Coco Fierce's monthly Mudkiss column.
Christmas 2013

"At the risk of sounding a bit like Ebenezer Scrooge, I am beginning to think that Christmas is a bit ‘Bah Humbug.”

Autobiographies

"In some ways, there are some things that would be better not to see the light of day; personal facts, such as sex lives or previous relationships are surely sacred? This is why you could have knocked me down with a feather when my heart-throb and idol, Morrissey, recently released his autobiography."

Darkside of The 80's

"The 80s. The decade that everyone wanted to forget is back with vengeance and it is big business."

Scratch My Name On Your Arm

"Nowadays, people don’t seem to put much thought into their tattoos. Many are rushed decisions taken from the internet or flashes in the studio. They are more of a need to enter the club of tattooed people than a real and genuine longing to commemorate or represent something which means a lot to them. This tattoo is certainly the antithesis of that. Almost twenty years in the making, it is a heartfelt message from a super fan, who has had her life shaped and changed by the haunting beauty and meaning The Smiths have brought into her life."

 
"On a recent trip to the cinema with my son, it really made me think about the paths we take in life. In many children’s films, we are taught that good always triumphs over evil and that if you try hard enough all of your dreams can come true. But we all know that this doesn’t mirror reality.

Embarrassing Parents

"Kids are great. Everyday seems to bring a new and exciting development. Whether it is baby teeth falling out, the moment they read their first words or them memorising the moves to Gangnam Style, being a parent is full of weird and wonderful experiences. Well last week I had a bit of a first as a Mum. My five year old son told me how embarrassing I was."

We’re Living In A Box 

"I longed to stand out. So do all of my friends and we sit on the stage together in a college canteen, swapping anecdotes and planning this Summer’s festivals. People called us ‘moshers’ and I loved being categorised. But teenagers do, don’t they...but I grew out of this. It seems other adults haven’t quite matured past this though."

The Show Must Go On....But Does It Have To? 

"There are some things you just don’t say in public…for example, admitting that you fancy Boris Johnson or that you once did a little wee in the swimming baths. It is a good job I don’t really care about social etiquette as if I don’t get something off my chest, I think I may explode in a jibbering heap"
 
 
"I’ll never forget the first time I ever saw ‘My Chemical Romance’ play. It was 2006; I was enjoying myself at my seventh Leeds Festival, kicking around the main stage waiting for Placebo to come on when I was hit by this wall of noise. Kick ass guitar and frenetic drums with a good dose of shout along lyrics for good measure...I was suddenly transported from a muddy field in Yorkshire to a dingy club in 80s New Jersey."
