Established in 2007, The Fugitive Motel is a collective webzine run by passionate, informed people who care about their music and popular culture. We try not to discriminate by genre or, indeed, anything else - we only care about whether your music is good or not. Our contributors are split between Manchester and London, two of the UK's most creative cities.
“The Emily in the song is my sister, who’s an astrophysicist; the narrator is myself, who is not an astrophysicist. Emily is the wanderer; she lives in Argentina and sometimes New Zealand. I’m not a wanderer, which is funny because I’m on tour half the time. I’m a home, hearth and family kind of person.” – Joanna Newsom
