ONE of the events of the year is happening in Liverpool tomorrow night when writer Paul Du Noyer takes us on a tour through his favourite Liverpool pop songs for Club Geek Chic.
Former Q and Mojo editor Du Noyer has more than 30 years experience writing about pop and rock for the premium magazine brands in Britain and the US and his three best selling books are classics of the genre.
GM must plead conflicting interests at this point as we consider him a bit of a mate and work with him professionally. So we would say all this.
Du Noyer's work welds a kind of academic anthropological take on music with a populist approach which makes musical history easy to understand. In short, it's what all great journalism should be about.
His history of London's music In the City has been critically acclaimed while his history of Liverpool's music scenes Wondrous Place is among GM's top 10 books, ever.
Get along to tomorrow night, Friday, Sep 18 and see what all the fuss is about.
