We are only human after all, we see the world not in black and white but in an armada of colours, almost psychedelic, almost in a state of flux somewhere between utter panic and soulful serenity; to think otherwise is to deny ourselves one of the basic fundamentals of existence, that when look into the eyes of strangers, of those we see every day, and even the constant weave of those we fancy, take a shine too or just daydream about, we know deep down that the Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life.
When the vibe is good then it rocks the house down and your neighbours, normally two feet from the wall and banging with ever sinew and muscle flexing and a small amount of foam dribbling down their unhappy chin, suddenly come round and ask you to turn it up. Then the music fan delights in the mayhem they have caused, and the small victory of the right music played at the right time makes the heart beat a little faster.
The inaugural Liverpool Music Awards are only a couple of weeks away and yet the team behind this unique event have managed to pull out yet another surprise for those attending this must go to event. Alongside The Wombats, Liz McClarnon and Esco Williams, former Spice Girl and singer/actor in her own right Mel C has announced she will be appearing to present one of the awards at the ceremony on Saturday November 17th.
Melanie has just finished a 21-date arena tour of the U.K. and Ireland, performing as Mary Magdalene in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar. She says: “I loved being back in Liverpool and am really excited to be part of the first ever Liverpool Music Awards”.
The inaugural Liverpool Music Awards are taking place next month at The Dome on Renshaw Street and it has been announced that chart-topping band Lawson and Liverpool indie stars The Wombats will be appearing as two of the acts at the prestigious event.
The red-carpet event, hosted by Radio 2 D.J. Janice Long, will also see performances from X Factor finalist Craig Colton and M.O.B.O. Unsung Act award winner Esco Williams, Mark Simpson, the first person ever to win both the B.B.C.’s Young Composer and Young Musician titles in the same year along with Liverpool legend Ian Prowse, Cold Shoulder and the Sense of Sound Choir.
