Before anyone starts asking “#MWE, WTF?”, the hashtag stands for Music Writing Exercise, and is the brainchild of Gary Suarez, freelancer about the Internet who hatched this idea five years ago.
As a way of improving one’s writing and expanding musical horizons at the same time, the premise is simply to listen an album you have never heard before every single day in February, and tweet about it.
Like Homer Simpson said that time he tried to give his sailor talk the old heave-ho as put forward by his stupid sexy neighbour Ned Flanders, self-improvement has always been a passion of mine, so I. Am. Game!
For the next 28 days I will update this article with all my #MWE tweets for posterity. Would love to know what Alan’s readers think of my choices in the comments below, if you have any suggestions of what to stream and see me review (open for absolutely anything), or if anyone else is taking this challenge. Here goes nothing!
