Tonight From Iron Mountain
“Never take your work home with you…”
In the creative industries, the line is often fine, that lies between work, and play. For musicians, in particular, these two worlds can sit quite neatly, on the same plane.
Iron Mountain is a small flat in south Manchester. It is used as a recording studio, a rehearsal space, an office, and a home. The wealth and variety of characters that meet, work, drink, debate, create and organise, in that space and around, serve to inspire and inform one another. But they have also become akin to a theatrical production, in and of their very being.
It is absurd.
It’s also quite real.
I will be documenting, in this column, some of the events that occur around these people, and their music. Partly for your entertainment, but also to promote and further the exceptional work that my colleagues, my friends, and I, do.
Alabaster De Plume
“You know when you’re ugly
You don’t always know you’re stupid”
Alabaster dePlume delights in his own confusion.
He embraces it. It makes him look a bit pretentious, sometimes, but in the end, it is deeply sincere.
He seems to feel he ought to share certain things, just in case everyone else was just too afraid to mention it first.
He’s been described as “Harrowingly funny.”
He works with Debt Records in his hometown Manchester, and performs poetry and song around the UK, in festivals such as Shambala, bars and concert halls, such as Band on the Wall in Manchester.
