#FuturePicks; HÜDS ‘Copicat’

This summer a Wizard (Gavin Monaghan) pointed my ears in the direction of poetic Wolverhampton troubadours, HÜDS. My ears said "more please". Image by Paul Husband Then, a couple of months ago, I found a Vanadian Avenue live music video of the young quartet playing "Coasting" and "Copicat" at a Stourbridge show with superb rockers, The Pagans S.O.H. and Kick The Clown. I discovered that HÜDS and myself share views on The Scum Oozepaper, that the second song was about a piece of recording equipment and that their musicianship thrilled me to watch.

This is one of the bands radiating psychedelic sparks.…

Solidarity. We can do this.

Solidarity. We can do this.

Littler Britain, Winter 2019. The first five years of TheZineUK documenting were under the (S)tory party. Agree to disagree on the results and blames, then we move on. Hopefully together. The songs and gigs will keep coming. The tale will keep evolving. The artists will keep inspiring. Thank you, allies, for every click, "like", artist support and hug so far. TheZineUK instagram posted 10 picture memories, (from thousands!) a few hours before the 12/12 Election results. We hope to create another five years of love, peace, music, unity and hope. Even in a hostile environment. The friends of a #FertileEnvironment inspire it. Onwards. ❤️🎶 ❤️ p.s. below, the cover of Spring 2019 part 1 picture documentary. part 2 is coming soon!

Stars for The Many

Stars for The Many

"The For the Many Tour is about using our platform to bring people together, influence change and help create a society in which we are a little bit more equal." (The Blinders) It's not just that guitars are back in the forefront of activism, it's also that music still wants to save the world. Good. Big Joanie, Jon McClure (Reverend & The Makers), Grace Petrie - oh so many more, allied with friends/fans at events, on line, wherever, to make the future look brighter. No matter what happens next. Politics -v- dirty tricks. I went off on one, a few weeks ago ('12/12/19: Hate -v- Love?') but am switched on the people powered punky positivity pulsing against the elite establishment's excremental evil. Fckn adore the artists in TheZineUK's story. Taking…
