Just a quick update of what I am up to at the moment. Firstly – the edited collection on Frank Zappa is about one month from being sent to the publishers! The plan is to get it on the shelves by the end of this year – so fingers crossed. When it comes out – I will post more details of chapters etc.
My chapter on Welsh Identity in music was realeased last month in Popular Music History. This has been a long time coming – it can be found here
I am also in the process of finishing off a chapter with my colleague Prof. Richard Hand on British Rock ‘n’ Roll in Cinema. It will be published in Spain in L’Atalante. Revista de estudios cinematográficos – more details soon.
Finally I have just started some research for The Higher Education Academy into how live music can interface with higher education. As part of the project I will be speaking at a couple of conferences in May – and will post more details about this when I have them
