Clare Lydon: Weekly Update

ice-cream-400What am I working on? My new novel, Twice In A Lifetime, due later this year. I’ve nearly finished the first edit and I really like it so far. It’s a second-chance romance and it’s set in the USA, in Chicago, the first time I’ve ever set one of my books outside the UK. Doing so was inspired by a trip to Chicago this summer, which I absolutely loved, and now I keep bugging my Chicago friends for details I’ve forgotten. Also, thank goodness for Google maps! I’ve been walking up and down Lake Michigan, the Magnificent Mile, and sailing down the Chicago river.

taylor-swift-clare-lydon

Pulp-CP

Remember Britpop? Course you do. Floppy fringes, Fred Perry tops and all, a time before Snapchat and Twitter, a time when a chart contest between Oasis and Blur was deemed newsworthy. No, really. Last week, BBC 6 Music DJ Steve Lamacq presided over the Britpop top 40 countdown, voted for by 30,000 listeners and I was heartened to learn that my Britpop No.1 was also the listeners’ choice, beating both Oasis and Blur into the bargain…

Interview Archive: Bruno Mars

bruno-mars-superbowl

Bruno Mars played a starring role at last night’s Superbowl between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, wowing the crowd with his songs as well as his gold lame jacket. I interviewed him a little over three years ago when he was on the cusp of mega-fame, having just had his first No.1 with Just The Way You Are plus success with a bunch of other hit songs. He was a terrific interviewee, buzzed about life & full of energy despite being jetlagged. Here’s the interview from October 2010 where he talks about fame, his ambition and why freshly squeezed orange juice means you’ve made it…

Holy Bonnie Tyler, It’s The Eurovision!

It’s Friday, it’s May 17th, it’s only one more sleep till Eurovision erupts in Malmo, when Bonnie Tyler rises up from a sea of blinky choruses & Lithuanian grannies and takes the Euro-crown for the UK! And before you raise an eyebrow at your screen and tell me that the UK has no chance of winning now that Europe has been cut into 426 pieces with a rusty cheesewire and everybody hates us, let’s take a look at the video and indeed, the song choice…
