Well, I can't believe how much we achieved in my last blog update, a phenomenal number of show reviews, some cracking interviews and tons of new music reviews. On the personal front I've completed a couple of Photoshoots, with the local band Slydigs, Liverpool based Rialto Burns and one with an exceptionally talented young band from Warrington, who we will certainly be keeping abreast of and the set of promo shots will be featured further down the line. We will be receiving the album hot off the press for reviewing, around April. Watch out for the KINDEST OF THIEVES!.
We've been getting so many requests for reviewing new stuff that we've had to enlist a new team member to cope with demands. Let's welcome on-board the good ship Mudkiss......Tim Verhaegen - coming at us all the way from Canada, with the first music review of the month The Dropkick Murhpys new album.
Also new to Mudkiss is a young man from Brighton - Jack Prescott, with his first shining review of Kate Nash. He's certainly no newbie to writing, and quick witted too.
Thanks to Danni Mathews for doing us proud with a great feature on Alternative Modelling and her own battle with Mental Illness and how she hopes to raise awareness. We hope to be seeing more writing from Danni in the forthcoming months.
Shell Zenner continues to keep us informed and up to date on what's currently hot and cutting edge.
Hot off the press.....Just joining the ranks with his first feature on the death of the rock star ...another Manchester lad, Nigel Cartner, he's not only writing his first novel, he's going to be contributing to our features section and anything else he fancys turning his hand to.
We hope you'll stick with us through the coming two months...here's what's been posted already.
