  1. Dr Rebekka KillHead of School, Art Architecture and DesignLeeds Metropolitan University Facebook is like disco, and Twitter is like punk.

  2. In this “talk”

  3. I’m not going to talk

  4. … at all.

  5. This is a story of obsession

  6. and of music.

  7. I used to live a double life

  8. I had two careers that I deliberately kept separate.

  9. I was worried that, if I came clean…

  10. it would be a disaster both personally and professionally.

  11. By day I was

  12. …an art lecturer

  13. By night…

  14. a nightclub DJ.

  15. *whispers* nightclub DJs don’t talk btw

  16. Eventually, I became frustrated with the duality of my life, after a decade I was tired of burning the candle at both ends and I decided it was time to confess all…

  17. I began to make art about music

  18. In 2007 I did a performance work that involved playing 7inch records

  19. for 24 hours

  20. in ‘approximate’ alphabetical order.

  21. I started at 9am on a Saturday morning with The 5th Dimension Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In

  22. I ended with…

  23. Yazoo Don’t Go, Yeah YeahYeahs, Rockers to Swallow, The Young Knives The Decision, Yazz Stand Up For Your Love Rights and The Zutons Oh Stacey.

  24. …at 9am on a Sunday morning.

  25. Over 500 7inch singles in 24 hours.

  26. I am obsessed with music

  27. totally obsessed.

  28. It all started in 1977

  29. In 1977 I was old enough to be allowed to stay up to watch Top of the Pops.

  30. In 1978 my mum went to university, at Portsmouth Poly, and over the next three years I attended all of the-end-of-term all day discos.

  31. So, from ‘78-’81, three times a year, I danced for 12 hours in the students’ union, I watched Top of the Pops religiously and...

  32. I listened to my tiny transistor Frosties radio (I’d found it in a charity shop) and this began my obsession.

  33. 1981 was a turning point

  34. I had enough pocket money, and enough freedom, to go to Woolworths and buy records.

  35. I started collecting

  36. So, what’s all this got to do with social media?
