UPDATES

OCTOBER - NOVEMBER 2010

Posted by Mudkiss on October 16, 2010 at 1:53 PM

Welcome to October & November 2010 updates. We've been really busy this month with shows galore. The Jim Jones Revue has to be one of the most riveting shows we've attended so far, not forgetting Grinderman.




Well Summers truly gone, not that we had much of one anyway and the recession is hitting hard, with worries about pay cuts and working longer hours for less pay. Still we plunge into our social life and pretend for one night we have no cares in the world. There are lots of new bands around and we are getting stacks of requests from local and UK based bands that it isn't physically possible to indulge them all, despite there being a lot of great talent around.


Recommendations from Mudkiss are the Warrington based bands Exile Parade and The 66, (who I'll be doing a features on this month) and one female singer which I highly recommended is Manchester based Kirsty Almeida, I'm sure you'll be seeing this dazzling woman on your TV screens in the not too distant future.

 

There's so many shows lined up for the next two months we might not get to all of them but we'll attempt to, some are dependant on PR company's providing guest-list.

 

I've also got a few photoshoots booked so its going to get busy and I've just finished the 2011 Mudkiss Calendar. Get it here: http://www.mudkiss.com/apps/webstore/

The Mudkiss 2010 Interview book is behind schedule this year. Phew so much to do and so little time.

There's been loads of photo oportunitys this month so check out the albums but better still the flickr site http://www.flickr.com/photos/vivamel/sets

or my other photography sites (they might not be up to date though) http://www.shuttrblade.com/profile/MudkissFanzine - http://mudkiss.carbonmade.com

 

Very sad to hear the news about The Slits singer Ari-Up passing away - Kris Needs kindly offered to write a personal tribute.

ARI UP: A PERSONAL TRIBUTE BY KRIS NEEDS (17 January 1962 – 20 October 2010) "This really is one of the last obituaries I thought I’d be writing in 2010. Also one of the most unbelievably sad. Ari’s final wish was that the video for the Slits’ ‘Lazy Slam’ be released posthumously; one last, loud statement to celebrate a remarkable life the best way she knew how." http://www.mudkiss.com/ariup.htm
