Established in 2007 and closed in 2013, The Fugitive Motel was a collective webzine run by passionate, informed people who care about their music and popular culture. We tried not to discriminate by genre or, indeed, anything else – we only cared about whether your music was good or not. Our contributors were split between Manchester and London, two of the UK’s most creative cities. This is an archive as it stood when the site was placed on (permanent) hiatus.
“I had that Paul McKenna come up to me once and he said, ‘I love that song of yours about bicycles.’ So I said to McKenna, ‘And I loved the stunt you did in that glass box above the Thames.’ ” – KT Tunstall, August 2007
