BONUS POSTING : A GENIUS IDEA FOR A MUSIC BLOG

05f1a05136f98bc536e6b3a56e2eca5e

SWC over at No Badger Required is constantly coming up with all sorts of new ideas for postings. He’s already promised there will be ten new series throughout 2023 and that doesn’t include what he’s up to right now.

He mentioned late last week that he was going to attempt to blend the art of the short story with a music blog.  My curiosity was piqued, to say the least.

It was Monday morning when he showed his hand.

…let me introduce something that I probably won’t ever do again – something which I think is a first for a music blog – a murder mystery with musical interludes.   Yes.  You read that right.

There’s been three parts of what is shaping up to be a seven-part thriller.  He’s called it ‘Rearranging the Flowers – A Pointless Whodunnit with musical interludes and 7 chapters’.

We’re already up to Chapter 3.  It’s proving to be a brilliantly bonkers idea and it’s working a treat.  The storyline is shaping up nicely, and the musical interludes have already featured (in order of appearance) Taylor Swift, Whitney, Super Furry Animals, Courteeners, Leatherface, Jamie XX, Arlo Parks, Jamila Woods, Cage The Elephant, Simon and Garfunkel, Rob Dougan, The Libertines, Ride, The Jesus & Mary Chain, and Pulp.

If you go to No Badger Required, you would have to scroll down in order to prevent reading things out of sequence.  So, in the interests of a public service, here’s links to click on.

Chapter 1

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

(I’ll continue to add each new chapter as and when they appear).

Chapter 4

Chapter 5

Chapter 6

Chapter 7 (the end)

Here’s a couple of appropriate tunes:-
