HOME is where the heart is for Carly Connor – after her mum and gran got the songstress’s music back on track. The Scottish songbird was hotly tipped as a teenager, and moved to London a few years ago to work with producers. However Carly, from Easterhouse, ended up miserable and low on confidence, and moved back home to start over again. Now she is releasing a soulful stomper of a song, Who’s Gonna Love You, on Saturday with a headline show at King Tut’s, and she couldn’t be happier.
The LaFontaines are back with a new album and a sold out Barrowland show – and they’re still doing things their own way. The Scottish group’s blend of rap, rock, funk, pop and whatever else they can find is a unique mixture, and one that’s baffled some record companies over the years. They’ve wanted the band to polish their sound, but the lads have always stuck to their guns.
NEXT year will mark Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark’s fortieth birthday – and no-one is more surprised by that than founder Andy McCluskey. Andy originally formed OMD with Paul Humphreys in 1978, thinking one gig would be the limit of their ambitions. “We’ve been a 40 year rolling accident,” he chuckles, ahead of a return to Glasgow on Sunday to play at the Royal Concert Hall. “It’s actually 50 years since Paul and I met, when he came to my school.
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".
