Kill It Kid are a British blues/grunge/Americana band. We saw them at The Ruby Lounge in Manchester recently. They were good. Really good. Love this video too.
Ellen Datlow has released her longlist of Honorable Mentions for 2013, which includes work by Nina Allen, Stephen Bacon, Laird Barron, Elizabeth Bear, Georgina Bruce, Ramsey Campbell, Adam Nevill, Stephen King, John Llewellyn Probert, Steve J. Dines, Stephen Volk, Ilan Lerman, James Cooper, John Ajvide Lindqvist, Alison Littlewood, Livia Llewellyn, James Cooper, Carole Johnstone, Cate Gardner, Simon Bestwick, Gary Fry, Michael Kelly, Joel Lane…to name a few.
Ellen says of the list, “Some readers might find it useful to see the range of publications that are publishing worthwhile horror stories. Although this list is long, it’s a tiny percentage of the stories I actually read. So if you find your story and name on this list, that’s a good thing.”
I am delighted to be included with the following:
Thanks, as ever, to Ellen Datlow, and editors, Mark Lord, Nathan Shumate and Andy Cox.
Last week I saw Lucius at The O2 Academy in Liverpool. They were awesome. Really. They are a Brooklyn-based quintet headed up by vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, who’ve been singing together for years and sound amazing. They’re bright lights in an X-Factor darkness.
They are touring with support act Lapland and will themselves be supporting Jack White in November.
