How to describe Geekpop? Well, the organisers describe it as “a gleeful celebration of geek pop music at our online science-inspired festival”. It’s a virtual sci-pop festival that seems to be establishing itself as an annual event. This year, I was invited to join in the fun by writing and recording a song for the festival. If you dare, you can listen to the song here. You have to click to the Tetrahedron Stage and then on Dr Stu and the Neutron Stars. Turn the volume up and rock.
And now for the part that sounds like the Oscars: warmest thanks to good friend Dan Breeze who played drums and sang on the song; thank you to Geekpop organiser and fellow science writer Hayley Birch for asking me to be involved; also thanks to James Urquhart, another fellow science writer, for coming up with the hook line that inspired me to write the lyrics for the song. Remember: Neutron stars – they’re heavier than metal!
So, what are you waiting for? Get over to Geekpop and join in the fun.
