I am so so so excited and honored to get to be 'In Conversation' with some of the most amazing artists, writers, tastemakers and icons at this year's Liverpool Sound City. The festival takes place May 25-May 28th in Liverpool. It all kicks off for me with Dudley, Jeczalik and Langan from Art of Noise, talking about their music together and as solo artists. Next up is the lovely Hattie Collins, who has been documenting and promoting grime before the rest of us had any idea what it was. Next up, I get to chat Liam Gallagher, Amy Winehouse and more with photographer Tom Oxley. I am super thrilled to be on the couch and in the gab with electroclash queen Peaches to finish off May 26th.
I will be all adoration when I get to talk to Danny Fields on May 27th. Fields discovered The Stooges and Iggy Pop, MC5, managed the Ramones, hung out with Nico and knew the Doors- he even set Jim Morrison up with Nico! I can't wait to bow down to him in thanks for all he has contributed to culture and music. Yes, that is Warhol and Lou Reed.
Lastly, I will be seriously in full fan girl mode when I get to chat music, writing, coffee, Indie labels and of course being the nicest, coolest and most down to earth legend- the lovely, ageless Tim Burgess and I hit the couch to gab on the last day of the festival, May 28th. Don't miss Tim's performance the same day.
If you have not yet seen the amazing new Charlatans video, make sure to check it out below- it is a serious ear worm. TOON! New Charlies album, Different Days, hits May 26th. I can't wait!
