Gorgeous Bully makes brightly bummed-out fuzzy rock that gently launches you into your own emotional outer space. The Manchester-based bedroom-pop project, led by Thomas Crang, has been active for several years, with its earliest collection of songs being released on Bandcamp in 2010. In that time, Gorgeous Bully has consistently dropped several EPs (16 total), each more gut-wrenchingly honest and daydream-inducing than the last.
You can feel that coming out of the project as you listen. There's a lot of collaborative synergy from beginning to end. Whether it's someone who's featuring or producing. It's the same kind of energy I feel is happening in real life in this New York scene right now. It's mad beautiful but I feel like it's just waiting for that jump start. I've had a lot of talks with a lot of people about that. Everybody's getting the attention they deserve. I feel like everybody's been working really hard.
When did you realize your album was starting to get popular in Jamaica? In those times, I never heard "Bam Bam" play one time in Jamaica. I only heard "One Two" and “Transport Connection,” them were the only tunes they used to play in Jamaica. Those were the only two I heard while I was there. It was when I migrated [to the U.S.] in 1996, that I knew how big "Bam Bam" is. I didn't know, I never had a clue because the producer never wanted me to know. He knew because he was traveling, and I was not.
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".
