"BAN BAN "

My contributions to the music section thus far have demonstrated my passion for a broad spectrum of music and hopefully that I have an ability to convey my opinions in an effective and interesting way. This would be valuable as a music editor, as will my commitment. I know I can work effectively under the constraints and pressure associated. I have contributed to every issue of Concrete since my first review and although this will be said by the majority of applicants, I have a real passion for music and if I'm not listening to music, I’m buying records, watching a band live, playing guitar or talking/writing about music.
I feel that at the moment, the music section could cover more beyond the standard Indie bands which take up the majority of pages. Whilst I would not wish to alienate the core readership, I think there is a need to expand coverage to more alternative types of music and would work to get people with different tastes involved. Personally, I listen to a lot of hardcore, punk and post punk music, and would like to see this represented. I'm sure this is possible for a lot of genres, without affecting the quality of coverage for existing markets.
I also think there is room to challenge the bands we have the privilege of interviewing. At the moment, I feel the features are interesting and usually well-written, but they do not stand out from other publications, and have nothing different to give. As editor I would work on asking bands different questions, ones that might not be so easy to answer with simple stock phrases. Whilst I would not encourage Denis Pennisesque interviews, I feel challenging journalism always has a place. I want people to look forward to hearing a band defend themselves against justified criticism, but maintain humour and praise the band where warranted. The section will never compete with more professional productions, and it would be foolish to attempt this in terms of up-to-date coverage of a large range of music, which is why we need to establish a different identity for Concrete’s output. Moreover I feel there is room for more involvement in the music scene in Norwich as a whole.
I have a lot of passion for music journalism and would genuinely love this job. I wish to pursue a career in this type of work, and see this as a good starting point.
I asked the union if we could invite michael muammad knight and omar majeed (taqwacore film director) to SOAS and the president nearly creamed herself.
but at UEA? It is UEA isn;t it?
don't know if that will go down well
do you want me to onceover it again?
just the 'as a good starting point bit'.
Don't add any more 'cores'.
Say your have a broad range of tastes that are challenging and alternative but not just in a rock direction??
maybe mention maybe hip hop? The n if they reject you you can call them indie racists!

Inside the airplane, some light was diffracted through the window, and the spectrum appeared on my trousers.
