The post-apocalyptic folk of Afterglow by Jon Boden and The Remnant Kings was a welcome entertainment on a cold Friday night. My review of the album itself can be found here, but watching it live at The Globe in Cardiff with the full complement of The Remnant Kings was just as enjoyable as the album itself. In the very intimate setting of The Globe, the band opened the show with covers of ‘Rosin the Bow’ and ‘The Rose in June’.
Following the heart-breaking end of Bellowhead in 2016, their restless frontman Jon Boden picked up his many instruments and immediately set about recording music of a different flavour. Still deeply-rooted in folk, his solo work is just as experimental, layered, and intriguing a listen as any of Bellowhead’s formidable output, but where Bellowhead’s emphasis was on reimagining traditional folk songs, Boden’s solo work is entirely original.
Traditionally-speaking, oil and gas was just about the only industry where no one wanted to be first. When it came to new technology or alternative approaches, it seemed everyone was racing to be ... second! Brand new technology? Let someone else prove it first, then I'll consider it. New way of working? Show me someone who's made it work, then we'll talk. So the idea of customers and vendors working together, across the transactional divide? Yeah, right....or so it seemed.
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".
