In another busy week of music news, Getintothis’ Will Whitby brings you the roundup of our top stories of the week.
This week on Getintothis we have been celebrating the promising future of Liverpool’s music industry. As the Liverpool City Region Music Board comes into fruition we went to see where the new Liverpool Music Industry taskforce is setting its goals. The future is bright from our analysis. Collaboration, drive and creative minds are key and Liverpool has plenty of it.
We’ve been indulging in history’s greats too as Neil Young’s Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere marked its grand 50th Birthday and as the late, great Doris Day passed away we celebrated her illustrious career with this a career spanning top ten- yee haw.
But if you’re all tuned out of music news we have also been gearing up Music Film season at FACT Picturehouse. Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, Ella Fitzgerald, Quadrophenia and more will have our eyes glued to the screen and settling into their comfy seats regularly over the summer.
This writer has been marvelling at the wonders of the Australian psychedelia scene after being blown away by the wonderfully named and just as cosmic Psychedelic Porn Crumpets this Tuesday at the Shipping Forecast.
