Every week Nicola asks us to write a story of 6 words, or fewer, based on a prompt that she provides.
The top 3, as voted for “by the public” get to display a marvellous badge on their site. I have been lucky to have been amongst the chosen. I normally have a go every week, but do not normally post the entry on my blog.
This week the prompt is “Wicked”.
Quite naturally, the first thing that came to mind was the horrendous attack on concert goers in Manchester and that resulted in my entry for this week.
I really hope that I do not win this week because nobody is a winner in wickedness such as was perpetrated by this inhuman, misguided young man.
You can see all the other entries here . Why not have a go yourself?
A fantastic report on Limelight Festival 2017 by a talented young music blogger. Read and enjoy!
We waited patiently, for a whole 12 months. We attended gigs, we played our music loud and we counted down the days until we’d be back in front of that stage once more. We watched with excitement, as the lineup, the headliners and the last minute acts were announced. We planned our May Day bank holiday weekend accordingly and then we headed for Newcastle town centre, cagoule in hand and hopes high.
The fifth annual Lymelight Festival ran from the evening of Friday 28th April through until late afternoon on Monday 1st May and by all accounts, it was spectacular. Opening with sets from Captain Stingray’s Groove Machine, Vidorra, 10o’clock Chemical and Akahum, it seemed that from the get go, this would be more than just your usual local festival.

I don’t normally “do” music on my blog, but I’m making an exception with this. Firstly, the reviewer is my Great-Niece and, secondly, the track is pretty damn good.
See what you think!
Just discovered this fantastic post from Bridget. The song is so pertinent to both UK and USA now, and probably to many other countries too. See what you think!
Check out the latest music revue from Emily who is fast becoming the “go to” voice, notably for reviews but also with her own music too!
On the last Saturday of February, Larkins played the biggest show of their career to date. At a sold out show at the Gorilla in Manchester, a 700 capacity venue, the band appeared to blow the roof off the venue, probably leaving everyone with something to go home and think about; the Larkins storm that’s sure to arriveat a venue near you.
Their brand new single ‘Wasted Years’ explains it all. The combination of a funky bass line, cool music video and a knack for writing songs that make it very hard to sit still whilst listening to them, creates a winning formula. Beginning completely stripped back, with Josh Noble’s clean cut vocals slicing through the silence, ‘Wasted Years’ isn’t hard to like. When the beat kicks in, you feel every kind of feeling all at once, as you realise that you’re listening to a band who are definitely worth…

Mighty powerful words when sung. Even more so when viewed.
