2009: Thank you!

By on Wednesday, 23rd December 2009 at 6:00 pm

We’ve had quite a year here at There Goes The Fear. We’ve bought you live reviews from Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Lovebox, Keane and La Roux amongst many, many more. We’ve interviewed Mew, The Boxer Rebellion and Marmaduke Duke along with many other artists you may not have heard of, but should check out.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without you: the readers. We hope that we’ve continued to inform, entertain and keep you up to date with the best new music. Have an idea for 2010? Like a feature? Hate something we do? Drop me an email and we’ll try and sort it out. Likewise, if you fancy writing for us, drop me a line and we’ll sort it out – we’re always on the lookout for new talent.

Literally hundreds of PR, record company and media types have been in contact throughout the year, but big thanks must go to the ones who we’ve pestered a lot over 2009 and always a joy to work with: Karen, Holly and Merlin at Radarmaker (possibly the best PR firm in the UK), Rob, Kellan and Peter at Partisan PR, James at We Are Brilliantly Different, Jason and Kelly at Radio 1 and Tasha and Alex at Anorak London.

Finally, who can forget our lovely writers? Mary, Jess and a shed load of others who have written a piece or two for us over the year. They’ve provided a new take on things, and introduced us to many new bands over the year, so thank you.

We’re having a bit of a break to plan for 2010, but we’ll be back on Monday January 4th with renewed vigour – hopefully see you then. In the meantime, check out some of our favourite songs we’ve given away for free download in 2009:
