new blog post about three creative events end of january 2015

Michelle Dee

Creative1-Logo550px-217x300Wait for one art gathering and three come along at once. After a week that would fly by in a blur of visual presentations, slideshows a week of energised speakers sharing experiences and passions, I try to make sense of it all.

Beginning with Wednesday Creative One at McCoys hosted by Paul Dennis One Gallery: Jacqui Gay Head of PR and Communications at Hull City Council talking about her career path, including alt. music, Persil and the Canary Wharf regeneration.

off your shelf

I first heard La Bête Blooms when I was procrastinating in Aberdeen, sometime in late March. I bought their tape (you can still buy it) and I knew I was hearing something pretty special. They kept releasing great songs for free as I kept looking for ways to give them my money. It’s been an agonising wait, but La Bête Blooms’ debut EP is here, and it’s amazing.
