“Yeah, music's been with me from the start. I've always connected to music on a very deep level. Especially recorded music. Listening to a great album is like stepping into another world for me, another head space. I've spent so much time with headphones jammed to my ears listening to my favorite tracks and going on emotional journeys. So to record music felt like a natural evolution. Listening to so much music drew me into recording stuff. I could feel the power of a song, the way a melody can work its way into the mind. And I wanted to touch other people in the same way. I made my first demos on a primitive four track recorder.”

“Flamboyant Margi Clarke never ceases to surprise us – and her latest project is as mind-bogglingly bonkers as ever. For the Coronation Street regular wants to represent the UK with her own Eurovision song, and promises her performance will come complete with 7ft aliens. Yep, aliens. The newly pink-haired showbiz scouser had hoped to keep her Eurovision entry under wraps. But the sci-fi-inspired, electro-dance anthem, Holographic Disco, has been leaked on the internet by spooky forces. So Margi agreed to meet The Diary in Manchester yesterday to reveal her radical plans. She says: “That’s what appeals to me, bringing something to the public that they would never in a million years expect that I might do. “I’ve always been involved in music, but it’s been quite underground over the past 30 years. People will say, ‘Can she sing? Can she dance?’ Well, yes, I can. I love the whole kitsch appeal of Eurovision – you can break the rules with it, and that’s where I come”

“CORRIE star Margi Clarke is making a bid for Eurovision glory with a high-energy dance track. Margi, 56, who has played fiery Jackie Dobbs on and off for 12 years, has lent her vocals to a Bjork-style record. ”

“ONE of Liverpool’s best-loved stars is making a bid for Eurovision musical glory. Margi Clarke, whose film credits include cult classic Letter to Brezhnev, was best known recently as Jackie Dobbs, mum of mechanic Tyrone in TV’s Coronation Street. Margi, who said she is “old enough to be Lady GaGa’s granny”, recorded her track, Holographic Disco, in the Woolton home of friend Steve Jones. Margi said: “We recorded the whole thing in Steve’s back kitchen. “Him and my other friend, Dennis Murphy, are great with the technical side of things, so they put together the video after I recorded it in front of a green screen, and wrote the music. “I’m like the filler in the creative sandwich. “I wrote the lyrics, which relate to my interest in UFOs, outer space and exopolitics.””

“Etrangers put an electro-romantic spin on those beats....”
