SINCE viewing the addictive silver bullet mainline hotshot of Merseyside and alcohol in the rare oul times that was Awaydays the movie, GM has been in Scouse pride overload.
GM wants to collect the best pieces of recent journalism about Merseyside and publish them on GM. Please, send any great pieces of writing about the People's Republic to us.
So, here are some great pieces of writing about Liverpool and surrounding districts.
We heartily recommend GM's new Liverpool 1 Bureau chief, Paul Du Noyer's New Statesman piece after we snorted coffee through our nose reading it.
Paul Du Noyer on why Liverpool is the capital of the North, and,
The Guardian's Alexis Petridis on why Liverpool music scenes are unlike any of those in other cities
Kevin Sampson, author and screenwriter of Awaydays on new pictures of Eric's
Mike Chapple on why Merseyside pubs are great
