Paul Quigley the Belle Lord and frontman of Hells Belles answers:
There is no other human form that touches on so many levels and fuses them, except perhaps the
visual arts, but they rely solely on vision, detail and colours. Their medium is silent and could be
peace, could be nothingness, could be death. But music is vibrant and alive. And yet, music can use
silence as an emotive tool too, but break out of that silence to raise the dead in a cacophony of
energy. And genre is no restraint to this: whether it is the Pistols, Prokofiev, metal, reggae, folk
they all rage and woo as requires. That’s why I love my music. I try to understand all this and to
blend if via my own experience. That may be Marshalls on 11, or acoustic balladry on 2. I don’t care
which tools I use, so long as there are people out there who ‘get’ it too. Genre-d music is a
Music is life.
It nourishes, begs nothing, promises everything.
Be at one with your music and be at
one with yourself. Peace out brothers and sisters.
