Charles Shaar Murray’s ‘Guide to the Blues’ kicks off the new season of Madam Miaow’s Culture Lounge, hosted by Anna Chen, on Resonance 104.4FM, Tuesday 4 March, 5pm-6pm – just as the new collection of Murray’s journalism — Shots From the Hip — first published in 1991, with a new introduction by Joel Nathan Rosen and a new afterword by CSM himself, is published by Aaaargh! Press.
The book puts together Murray’s writing on music and much, much more from the 1970s and 1980s in New Musical Express and elsewhere, edited and introduced by Neil Spencer. It shows just why Murray acquired the reputation of being the most intelligent and acerbic popular music critic of his generation.
CSM starts a summer course of his Hothouse Project “Journalism as Craft And Art” writing masterclasses in West Hampstead — eight Thursday evenings from 29 May to 17 July. Book now!
