Hi, I'm Marc. I'm a freelance journalist specialising in music, clubbing, culture and entertainment. I wrote Night Moves for the Evening Times for more than nine years and I write the weekly clubbing previews for Times Out every Thursday.
After Hogmanay’s feast of fun comes the famine of that dire first week in January, when so little goes on that it sometimes feels like you’re living in Edinburgh. It is, to put it mildly, the pits. Think of Glasgow’s nightlife as being like a pizza, though. Just as a bad pizza is better than the best salad, so it is with going out here: our worst weeks are still better than what they’ve got going on in, say, Bolton. That is to say that there are still good times to be had, even amid the gloom.
Glasgow is one of the places that Skream enjoys coming to most. It is his home from home, his sanctuary, his happy place. The London-based dubstep originator-turned-techno-stalwart knows that he can pitch up on Jamaica Street and blast the Subbie’s more-than-willing patrons with five hours of back-to-back bassy rhythms, electronic house, dubbed out disco, dancehall and funky tech, and they’re going to love it.
THE bonds that connect the new school of Glaswegian electronic music with Sheffield’s legendary Warp Records are strong. Founded in the Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire in 1989, the seminal label has always had a reputation for putting out intelligent dance music – its roster includes artists like Aphex Twin, Autechre and LFO. Tomorrow night, independent Glasgow label and party crew Numbers is teaming up with Wap for this enormous showcase at the Art School.
@dylancresswell1 hi Dylan I just want to let you know you are really really clever and wise and I admire you greatly. We need many more Great British warriors like you here up in Scotland #rulebritannia
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".
