Shirley Manson is describing the moment she arrived at last week’s NME Awards in London. “I was on the red carpet and a photographer goes to me, ‘Smile!’,” she says. “Years ago I probably would have smiled. But last night I was like -- ‘Are you paying me?’. He’s says, ‘no’. So I went, ‘Well, this is what you get’.”“His sense of complete privilege that a) he could tell me what to do and b) a woman is only of worth if she’s smiling and looking pretty and enjoying the attention,” she continues.
Fashion has, in many respects, never felt so inclusive. And yet when it comes to the sneaker-pimped out world of streetwear, it's generally accepted to be a bit of a boys club. You have Supreme, Stüssy, Palace. Of course, girls can wear these brands too (and boy do they). But streetwear is largely seen as a boys club for girls to join -- something Erin Magee wanted to address when she left her job at Supreme to set up riot grrrl rave label, MadeMe, back in 2007.
Chrystal makes music to shake a glow stick to. Music to drink White Lightning to. Music to soundtrack an all nighter followed by a walk to the butty shop on the stride of pride home to. She’s school days, taxi ranks, copied CDs and faux fur gillets. Samsung phones, being in love with your best mate and Saturday night down Wigan Pier, a canalside area of the Lancashire town that incongruously has no pier -- just an abundance of high BPM nightclubs.
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".
