Reliably informed

Newcastle heartbreakingly lost one of the key cultural figures of our rich creative scene to cancer this April. Craig Puranen Wilson a.k.a. singer/songwriter Sheena Revolta a.k.a. photographer Mink Jaguar was a key component in many underground and left wing events, and a regular NARC. contributor.

The soul behind some amazing club nights and unique events under titles’ Sounds of Seduction’, ‘Urban and Eastern’, ‘Trash Shack’, ‘Divine Trash’ and ‘Mondo Weirdo’, just to name a few. 

He created incredible events with his wife Krista a.k.a. Lady Koo, was the lead singer/songwriter of legendary transgender punk bank Women in Revolt and left a lasting impression that few could dream of. After putting on some amazing events at the first Star and Shadow Cinema, it seems fitting to have something special in his honour at the new Star and Shadow.

Always A Star, Never A Shadow takes place Saturday 2nd June, at the Star and Shadow Cinema. From 8pm until late there are three great bands; The Mush, Nathalie Stern & friends and Women in Revolt followed by DJ sets provided by TheMarkofKane, Stagger Lee and Lady Annabella. Craig’s photo exhibition GARAGELAND (2017), displays some incredible female musicians and this is an evening that showcases the lasting legacy of a truly special human.

Always A Star, Never A Shadow is at Star & Shadow, Newcastle on Saturday 2nd June.
