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 think the greatest thing of all is that we’re still best friends. We went to school together at the age of four… it’s really unhealthy isn’t it, knowing someone that long?!” – Nicky Wire of Manic Street Preachers, Later with Jools Holland
