When Alex Green was a child he impetuously stuck his hand into his father’s mill machinery and lost two fingers. It was a grievous injury for the youngster who had already shown remarkable musical prowess. Undaunted by that setback or the surgery that followed it, he went on to become one of his country’s greatest folk performers, excelled on the tin whistle, and was known as the Turra Tootler from the Isle of Man to Rio de Janeiro.
Björk has been announced as the first headliner of We Love Green in Paris next year. Hot off the release of her most recent album ‘Utopia’, the electronic music icon and Mixmag cover star will play Sunday night at the green-orientated event next year. We Love Green is one of France’s largest sustainable arts and music festivals and Icelandic superstar Björk is well known for her environmental activism. For this reason, her appearance is a natural fit.
The event returned to Leeds, with some of the biggest stars in the UK celebrating an epic year in the underground. Our very own Grant Brydon was there, and his report will be filed shortly - but we couldn't resist sharing this...Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn filmed a video message for the MOBO Awards, praising the impact grime has had on political engagement among young people. “The MOBOs play a crucial role in the British music industry, showcasing music of black origin,” he said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
