Club Rockhaq Workshops: April 2019

Our third month of Club Rockhaq creative writing workshops saw everyone finish their first reviews – and some even started and finished their second reviews in the same workshop. This was a brilliant achievement. So brilliant, that all our writers were rewarded with well-deserved Easter eggs at the end 🥚🤗

Album Review: Massive Attack – Mezzanine

I’ve been meaning to review this album for several years now and laughably missed my own deadline to cover it in time for its 20-year anniversary in late 2018. For Massive Attack’s Mezzanine it’s a case of better late than never, though. Like a number of other 1990’s British albums that have gone on to be regarded as all-time classics, it was released to little fanfare or drama. But Mezzanine is a sleeping beast that has well and truly withstood the ravages of time.

Club Rockhaq Workshops: March 2019

We had an awesome time at our second month of Club Rockhaq workshops in Leicester last weekend. Thank you to all workshop learners and parents for coming along/encouraging your youngsters to attend. It was exciting to see the range of creative music reviews that are being written and it’s brilliant to see how quickly every writer has progressed since month one. We’re also pretty full at both libraries, which is great news 🙂

Club Rockhaq workshops land in Libraries!

We’ve almost recovered from running our opening Club Rockhaq workshops at Oadby Library & The BRITE Centre last weekend. Phew! A last minute flurry of signups for Oadby made for a long and jam-packed day for us, but we absolutely loved it! A massive thank you to everyone who came along and worked so hard in your opening session. It’s given us a lot to think about when we plan the rest of our monthly Club Rockhaq workshops. I’d also like to say thanks to Paul who said hi to me when I was setting up at Oadby Library. You brought back many nostalgic memories about working at Leicester’s De Montfort Hall in the early noughties. An unexpected but apt blast from the past 😀

But we found that this team of 40 young writers were pretty much #flawless already.

Personal Jesus: Top 8 Easter Songs

By  •  Lists

It’s finally Easter and therefore the perfect time to showcase our Top 8 Easter Songs. Not only has the subject of God inspired many a decent musician, so has Jesus and the resurrection, so it’s high time we acknowledged this fact. There may be the odd pun-delicious song included in our Top 8 Easter Songs but rest assured, every single one of them is a golden egg! Find out what made our Top 8 Easter Songs below.
