Neu! Reekie!: 2017 in poetry, music, and glittery jumpers

Seven years ago this December, Michael Pedersen and Kevin Williamson were planning their first Neu! Reekie! event.

Now, they're busy planning a festive show which also doubles up as something of a greatest hits show, with artists including Irvine Welsh, Bill Drummond, Aidan Moffat, Charlotte Church and Hollie McNish all on the bill.

We caught up with Michael to talk about the Xmas Snowblinder, and reflect on the events of 2017. There's a sneaky wee nod to the future, too.

Over to the man himself.

What have you got lined up for the Xmas Snowblinder event?

How did 2017 treat you guys over at Neu! Reekie!?

Too soon to talk about 2018, or...?

The Neu! Reekie! Xmas Snowblinder takes place on Friday 15 December at Central Hall in Edinburgh. Tickets are available from brownpapertickets.com.

Keep up to date with all their goings on at neureekie.tumblr.com, or follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
