‘I believe you are a star’ is the book debut of local musician/DJ Peter McLennan (Dub Asylum/Hallelujah Picassos/BaseFM’s “Ring The Alarm”). The book is a collection of magazine articles on local artist written between 1992 and 2003. McLennan talked to locals just starting their recording careers (P-Money, Stellar, SJD, Black Seeds), through to established artists (Salmonella Dub, Shayne Carter, Bailter Space) and more. Books will be available for sale at Conch on the day (only $20!) with the author signing copies, and DJ Dylan C will be playing a special all-NZ vinyl set.
“Before starting my blog Dubdotdash in 2003, I’d been a freelance journalist for a handful of magazines, including Real Groove, North and South, NZ Musician, Rip It Up, and going back to Planet, Pavement, Lava and Stamp. Over the past year I’ve been working on pulling together a collection of articles I wrote during that time, scanning and converting the text, and will be publishing them via Amazon’s Createspace as a book/e-book.” – Peter McLennan via http://ibelieveyouareastar.blogspot.co.nz
