Headlines' interview

Really delighted to have a full-page interview in the autumn edition of 'Headlines' – the magazine of the Christie Hospital trust.

I talk about how the experience of throat cancer changed my life – and how I have fought to get my voice back. Both creatively and literally...

This will be the first show from The March Violets in Newcastle for around 30 years! A very rare treat to see a great band.

The band were one of the prominent post-punk drum-machine machine bands in the 80s - and since their 2007 reformation (original members Si Denbigh, Rosie Garland, Tom Ashton with new bass player Jo Violet) they've played a string of stunning shows - and so it's a great chance to see them here in Newcastle.

Support comes from Anxiety of Love and Berlin Black.

Tickets are £14 adv and on sale now.

In person : Trillians, Charnel House, Reflex Records, Hot Rats

UNICA DATA IN ITALIA!

Era il 1982 quando Andrew Eldritch dei Sisters Of Mercy licenziava sul mercato il primo singolo dei March Violets per l'etichetta Merciful Release... E' il 2013 quando, per la prima volta nella loro formazione storica con Simon-D e Rosie Garland, i March Violets sbarcano al Corallo per presentare in esclusiva per l'Italia il nuovo fantastico album "Made Glorious".

Storie di gothic-rock, chitarre e drum-machine che hanno fatto la storia della musica post-punk inglese al ritmo della "danza del serpente" (la famosa 'Snake Dance'). Da NON perdere!

    April 2020 - The Night Brother, Must-Read Manchester
    Manchester Confidential chooses The Night Brother as a must-read Manchester novel!

    Dystopian classics to modern crime - Nine must-read Manchester novels

    “Fantasy, romance, sci-fi, comedy…we’ve got a genre for everyone
    There’s a very good reason Manchester is a UNESCO City of Literature, as we highlighted before its bid to join the prestigious network in 2017. Innovative publishers, diverse bookshops and a lively events scene make it an unrivalled literary melting pot.

    Rosie Garland’s The Night Brother is our historical highlight
    Ever the entertainer, Rosie Garland sung in post-punk band The March Violets and now performs ‘twisted cabaret’ as Rosie Lugosi the Vampire Queen. But she’s also a literary maverick with an array of essays, short stories and poetry to her name (much of which she also reads at spoken words events citywide) and three acclaimed novels. Her latest, The Night Brother, navigates themes of gender and identity through two siblings in Victorian Manchester. Rich and Gothic, it’s a must for fans of Angela Carter.”

  • April 2020 - The Night Brother - Best Northern Read
    April 2020 - The Night Brother - Best Northern Read

    An unexpected & encouraging piece of news!
    Northern Soul has selected 'The Night Brother' as a Best Northern Read

    Desmond Bullen, Northern Soul writer
    “In days that can seem desolate and uncertain, there’s a lot to be said for windows into a better world and, ultimately, joyfully, that is exactly the view that The Night Brother by Rosie Garland affords. Not that its window seat is cheaply achieved. Far from it.
    Rooted with disbelief-suspending specificity in Manchester at the end of the 19th century, Garland’s novel blossoms compellingly from the exquisite simplicity of its central conceit, one which owes the tiniest debt to the 1971 horror film Dr. Jekyll And Sister Hyde. Edie and her brother Gnome are joined in a very particular symbiosis, so that their singular sibling rivalry threatens to be the undoing of both. Themes that could be leaden in other hands emerge from the premise with a beautiful lightness of touch, developing into a persuasive fable of inclusivity and self-acceptance. This is a book that sings a rainbow at its end.”

    'What Girls Do In The Dark' - new poetry collection with Nine Arches Press
    New collection forthcoming in October 2020 from Nine Arches Press

    I’m thrilled to be on the 2020 list of Nine Arches Press!
    I’m in the company of a fantastic group of poets. I couldn’t be happier.

    https://www.ninearchespress.com/about-us/news.html

    “Midlands-based independent poetry publisher Nine Arches Press, which achieved Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation status in 2018, will publish eleven new books of poetry in 2020, from a mix of established and emerging poets from across the UK and across the world…

    Acclaimed novelist Rosie Garland will also join the 2020 list in October with her third full collection of poems What Girls Do in the Dark, a book alive with galactic, glimmering energy. Rosie’s award-winning short and long fiction, poems and essays have been widely anthologised and in 2019 she was selected by Val McDermid as one of the 10 most compelling LGBTQI+ writers working in the UK.”
