He was honoured with the title ‘Sir’ in 1990 for his services.

Little Fish: The Best Book Yet To Be Written

Little Fish are going to release a book. There is one small flaw in that it hasn’t been written yet. The band will write and release the book written in collaboration with Miranda Ward but they need to get 400 of their fans to pre-order it. Still not convinced on why you should? Well the 400 fans that pre-order the book will receive some interesting benefits. The band have said that “supporters will have their names printed in the back of the book and receive various rewards based on their level of contribution – from access to exclusive downloads and updates to an invitation to join the band in the studio”. For more information on how you can be a part of a project that is turning the publishing world on its head then head over to http://littlefishmusic.com/handbook-pr for more information. Make sure you check out interview that MTTM editors Jo Cox and Lisa Ward did with the band and Miranda Ward in September on the following link – http://www.morethanthemusic.co.uk/interviews/little-fish-and-miranda-ward-unbound-project-interview/.

Shakespeare Goes Grime?

This year’s First Direct Dialogue Festival will see Grime artist Bashy team up with The Hip Hop Shakespeare Company. Hip Hop and Rap have been associated and compared with Shakespearean lyrics before due to the iambic pentameter rhythm often found in rap music making this collaboration much more effective. Bashy himself had this to say of his work with the Festival “If Shakespeare was still alive I’d collaborate with him for sure, he’d bring some sick lyrics to the table. He’s been a real influence in my career so I’m really excited about being a part of this project.”
