Leave it to a band with an almost unpronounceable name to succeed on its own stylistic terms. Sacramento-based mutating disco-punk band !!! harks back to the early days of American punk, in a time full of Loverboys and Night Rangers, and !!! stays true to that spirit on its new album, Shake The Shudder (Warp Records, May 2017).
If punk rock still stood for a certain way of doing things and approaching life, then you might characterize Steve Albini as a punk-rock godfather. Steadfastly anti-corporate, DIY and a purveyor of music as no-frills as his famous production style, Albini is an underground icon who still preaches the gospel of self-sufficiency at the core of DIY. "It's true in almost any enterprise.
True trailblazers often fail to reap the benefit of their innovations. In the tech business it's the difference between leading edge and the bleeding edge. One moves quickly and breaks things, the other comes along later to reap a lion's share of the accolades. Over the years, Billy Davis often had his finger on the pulse; it just took time for the blood to reach everyone else. "As I look back I was ahead, and it took a long time before I realized that," Davis says.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
