The Pictures in the Hall

PRESENTED ON OCT 26, 2011
IN DERBY @ VOL 3

"He was introducing the Ziggy Stardust persona. It was obvious to everybody that it was going to be absolutely massive. I remember being aware that I was witnessing something special, the emergence of a star."

In The Pictures in the Hallway, from PechaKucha Night Derby Vol. 3, Doug Smith shares an absolutely amazing PechaKucha about photos taken in London 40 years ago, of rock legends of a phenomenal era of music. Photos of Bowie, Eno, Dury, and others now gracing his hallway in Derby, an ultimately cool testament of Smith's love for music. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on November 2nd, 2013 and again on January 14th, 2015 following the passing of David Bowie.

APPLAUD THIS!

Inspirational Coincidences

BY RACHEL MASON
@ VOL 2 ON OCT 16, 2014

Rachel Mason talks, sings, and strums about the place where art and life, or fiction and reality meet... While doing research for a musical performance and rock opera to get inside the mind of a child killer from the 1930's, she made contact with a man who killed and dismembered a boy in Borough Park. The experience profoundly effected her, and inspired her to write an opera incidentally about a coincidence - two men with the same name Hamilton Fish, died a day apart and their deaths were announced on a single front page. One man was a child-killing sadist, the other a politician from a distinguished political family.

I Bet You Look Desperately Uncoordinated On The Dancefloor: an accidental journey into rock stardom

BY KEITH GABRIEL
@ VOL 33 ON OCT 03, 2017

Keith Gabriel brings us I Bet You Look Desperately Uncoordinated On The Dancefloor: an accidental journey into rock stardom.  By day, Keith Gabriel works inefficiently at the University of Warwick. By night, he generally does as little as he can, aside from bemoaning the domestic mundanities of parenthood. So how did this increasingly corpulent man, who’d previously never sang before a live audience, end up as the lead singer of an indie-rock band? And did he wiggle like a Jarvis, pogo like a Damon or just kinda stand there like a Liam?
