Ogle a music mogul

...WELL now there is a chance to quiz the money man behind The Fame, Bernard Resnick, as part of the business end of Liverpool Sound City which is just around the corner.

For gigs aren't the only item on the agenda at the May festival. Oh no. Big music industry names are flying in, volcanic ash permitting, as the city plays host to premiere movie screenings, photography exhibitions and a full music conference, with names such as Sire Records founder Seymour Stein already confirmed to attend.

Ian McCulloch will perform in the grand setting of St George’s Concert Room and will also join Stein in conversation at the Liverpool Sound City Music Business Conference at The Hilton Hotel on Wed 19th and Thu 20th May.

Organisers say: “It’s an un-missable opportunity to talk to Ian, Seymour and many more high-profile industry people and ask all those questions you always wanted to know the answers to about the music industry.”

Such as? Also appearing at this year’s conference are Brandon Young and Tim Riley of ActiVision Games USA, a major player in the gaming industry responsible for the hugely successful Guitar Heroes.

Then there's hotshot Philadelphia attorney Resnick, one of the business brains behind the phenomenon that is Lady GaGa, Patrik Larsson of Headlock Management, one of Scandinavia’s top management companies, Mark Jones from record label Wall of Sound, Geoff Meall - The Agency Group who looks after acts including Muse, Doves, Paramore etc. Julian Wall, Director Independent Member Services and International Events for British Recorded Music Industry (BPI) UK, Brent Grulke, creative director, South by South West USA, Alicen Schneider – NBC Universal USA, and many more.

The live music line up for Sound City also continues to grow, this week’s announcements on Wednesday 19 May is Jim Jones Revue playing the Zanzibar and The Phenomenal Handclap Band at Masque Theatre on 20th May.

They join the likes of Gil Scott-Heron, Paloma Faith, Delphicand the The Maccabees.
