And just to prove that this blog is sometimes about writing as well I thought I’d put up a post about this event. Dan Holloway, a great writer and a thoroughly nice bloke, is putting on one of the New Libertines shows he sometimes does – showcasing new writing and underground writing – in Manchester on 23rd January. I’m personally quite excited about this as usually these shows take place down south and I’ve never made it to one before. But this time they’ve ventured up North to brave the bracing winds and weather we have up here. Looks like a great lineup, details can be found on Dan’s Eight Cuts site here.
