Paul Du Noyer At Threshold

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)). ┬áNatalie 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.

Paul Du Noyer – Get It In Writing

This will be the first of two events I’ll be covering featuring the uber ace music journalist, Paul Du Noyer, (the next one will be part of the Threshold Festival in March).

This afternoon Paul did a master class on music journalism writing to interested parties at Brink on Parr St. What Paul doesn’t know about journalism probably isn’t worth knowing about as his CV includes the NME, Q, Mojo, Heat and Word magazine as well as numerous music books and editorial consultant for Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono.

The event was very ably hosted by 16 year old Dominic Dunn (as part of WeekdayWeekend Promotions) who did a stellar job of guiding the discussion through Paul’s career and advice on working in the industry.

Here’s the link to Weekday Weekend Promotions to find out more about their future events and also here’s the link for the upcoming Threshold event on 10th March at Camp And Furnace.
