Lesley caught up with friend and all-around amazing journo, Sarah Williams, on the Shout Louder Podcast.
Shout Louder is an online music zine and podcast, for punks who hate papercuts, which celebrates the UK DIY punk rock community. They interview musicians and promoters, write articles and live reviews, and talk about much more than music.
Shout Louder has published two books about the DIY punk rock community, gigs, tours and festivals (get your copy from our shop).
We discuss the impact that COVID-19 has had on small artists and labels, and how using social media can help bands to get out there right now. We also discuss ways to improve inclusivity in the punk scene and make it more open to all audiences. We even get on to what it’s like to be a woman in a mosh pit!
All our conversation is broken up with fresh new tracks from Borts, Prey Drive and Midwich Cuckoos. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
The podcast is hosted on Soundcloud, but you can subscribe on any podcast platform of your choice (apart from Spotify, who make life difficult for little podcasters), or listen to it right here. Enjoy!
