LANY @ o2 Insitute, 9th December 2017

The Ancient Greek aphorism “knows thyself” has been the seat of conceptual knowledge that has driven humans to contemplative realms for years upon years.  Know thyself, both a command and a goal.

For the latest round of dates, Mark Lanegan has called into Wolverhampton to play the Wulfrun Hall. Like her sister building, the Civic, she is undergoing extensive works, but from first glance it appears exactly the same as it’s always been. The staff assure me work is going on behind the scenes. Mark Lanegan has […]
