Another great slice of the thoughts of top music journalist and writer, Paul Du Noyer came to Liverpool last night as part of the Threshold Festival. Paul was the the first guest of Little Atom’s In Conversation series so it a nice little reunion at Camp And Furnace with Gemma, Karen and interviewer Mike Neary.
The focus of the talk was Paul’s book of the Liverpool music scene, Wondrous Place, which covered the great talents and stories from the local music scene from Billy Fury onwards. Mike adeptly steered the conversation through the book and highlighted many of the tales from it and Paul discussed things with very informatively and with great humour.
To help audibly illustrate the talk Natalie McCool and Thom Morecroft performed stunning versions of some key Liverpool songs (including Frankie’s The Power Of Love and The Beatles (of course)). Natalie also played a set after the talk in Camp And Furnace and entertained the audience after the event with Paul.
A splendid time was guaranteed by all.
