Winner of week’s strangest press release goes to Juliette Lewis who has somehow been roped into performing as part of the Get Loud in Libraries campaign. Last time this happened I think it was Mr Hudson involved pre autotune days when he was called … & The Library. That kind of made sense. This time, they are sending Juliette to Morecambe Library.
For those non Lancashire people amongst you, I am not exaggerating when I say Morecambe is the bleakest place I’ve ever been. I quite like bleak places, I’m from Blackpool after all – but Morecambe takes it to a whole other level. There is no one there, everything is shut down and the only thing to do is stand next to a statue of Eric (not actually from) Morecambe.
I took my housemate as part of a Lancashire road trip last January. Here’s what it looks like – click the pics to go large for full depression. Picture 3 nearly made me cry.
