Manchester was treated to a double dose of synth pop as 80’s leviathans OMD and Depeche Mode went head to head on the same night in the city. Over at the Academy, OMD had no trouble packing them in, having declared the gig sold out weeks ago. It’s safe to say a good proportion of the audience were 80s nostalgia addicts standing shoulder to shoulder with member s of the dedicated fan base.
The Liverpool Music Week Closing Party, held in conjunction with local online arts review magazine ‘Get into This’ provided a most diverse evening’s entertainment across two venues, The Invisible Wind Factory, and North Shore Troubadour 1 and 2. Pink Kink were indulging in a bit of screaming come singing early on in the evening at the Invisible Wind Factory. An enigmatic group from the LIPA fame school; deliberately provocative and deliberately devoid of a digital online presence.
Liverpool alt-rockers Red Rum Club release their third single, ‘Friend of a Friend’ on 29 September 2017 on Rooftop Records. The new single brings to the fore a development in their sound which they have been perfecting all year; a much more pronounced Americana feel, not dissimilar to the likes of Calexico. Jane Davies caught up with them prior to their first headline national tour later this month. Hello Red Rum Club, there’s six of you. Can you tell us who’s who and who plays what?
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".
