8th March This Saturday WOW fest at South Bank Centre

Hello

I have been looking up more about everyone that I am playing with on Saturday because you can’t just listen to Xray Spex and Bruce Springsteen all the time.

I found this video and tune combo of Anna Meredith’s . Wait for it too. It’s really good then suddenly REALLY GOOD

And Black Panther by Ayanna Witter-Johnston. Which I can’t stop humming now.

But I can’t help it, I really am most looking forward to seeing Gaggle live.

you can get £6 tickets if you enter the code WOWSIX when booking on the southbank website.

BBC4 The Big Melt How Steel Made Us Hard– feat. Machine Room

Duration: 1 hour, 10 minutes

A film by Martin Wallace and Jarvis Cocker, The Big Melt combines 100 years of footage from the BFI National Archive with a score recorded live at the Crucible Theatre on the opening night of Sheffield Doc/Fest in June 2013 to tell the story of steel, the story of the men in the steelworks and the story of Sheffield.

Taking us on musical journey into the soul of a nation, it brings to life the ghosts of our past, taking us into the belly of the furnaces and showing how our national character has been stamped from the mighty presses of our industrial heritage.

Featuring leading Sheffield musicians including Jarvis Cocker and Pulp band members, the City of Sheffield Brass Band, Richard Hawley and his band members, the Forgemasters, a string quartet and a youth choir, the live soundtrack has been edited by Cocker to create a phenomenal music score – a new kind of Sheffield heavy metal, with pictures.
