From the Bronx to Benimaclet, from Coney Island to the Carmen, from Manhattan to Marítimos, from Rhode Island to Ruzafa…take a walk on the wild side. Valencia has an outdoor & indoor lifestyle that lends itself to spontaneity and adventure. There’s fun to be had here as winter approaches. Check out our packed November listings for plenty of information regarding traditional pubs, clubs, bars, cafés, intercambio nights, shopping, classifieds and more. See the agenda at the back for lots of clubbing and live music dates too! 24/7 Valencia is 13 years old and is recommended by the local, national and international press. This includes The Times, El País, The Guardian, Rough Guide, Let’s Go, Time Out, Lonely Planet, Footprints, Aer Lingus, Ryanair, Levante EMV, Super Deporte, CNN.com, Thomas Cook, Business Traveller Magazine and many more… Given that the Moors ruled Valencia for hundreds of years, this region enjoys a rich Arabic legacy. We have an interesting article about the ‘Moriscos’ of Valencia who were expelled from their own land. Talking of Arabic influences, Helen Westwater of La Ola Fresca presents us with the North African dish ‘Chicken Tagine’ and we share food (another tradition from the Magreb) with Spanish

tapas at Tasca El Botijo in ‘restaurant of the month’. We have an exclusive interview with Carlos Madrid, director of ‘La Cabina’, the medium length international film festival that is growing by the year. For clubbers, check out our colourful photos of ‘24/7 Valencia Party People’ as well as DJ John Treacy’s expert article on Valencia nightlife in ‘Clubland’. In ‘Shopping’, we review the vintage shop ‘SoHo del Carmen’, run by a New Yorker of Valencian descent. Fittingly, we dedicate this issue to the late, great Lou Reed. The editor of ‘24/7 Valencia’ was fortunate enough to meet the legendary singer backstage and thank him for the superb concert he played at the ‘Feria de Julio’ in Valencia. During his stay in the city, Lou Reed enjoyed paella by the beach and practiced Tai Chi with his master in the Rio Turia gardens. He enjoyed Valencia so much that he told his manager he would consider living in Valencia if he were to ever leave New York. Instead, he went to rock’n’roll heaven …

LA CABINA FILM FESTIVAL 2013 An exclusive interview with director of La Cabina Film Festival Carlos Madrid Tell us about your own background, travels and experiences. Well, I always liked cinema, and I have organised film seasons and related activities with the Cineforum Cultural Association. I worked for several festivals, concerts and magazines, so the world of communication and events has been familiar to me for some years. As for travels... well, I have travelled to many European countries like Poland, Slovakia, Holland, Norway, Portugal, Italy, France, Germany and England. I have also been to the United States and Morocco. Lately, I travel less than I would like, but at least I have had the opportunity to go to some foreign film festivals I always wanted to go to. What is La Cabina Film Festival? La Cabina is the only international medium-length film festival in the whole world. That is to say, we screen only films from 30 to 60 minutes long, from all genres except documentary. It’s the sixth edition and it will be celebrated

from 8 – 17 November at the IVAM (Official Selection) and La Nau Cultural Centre (La Cabina Inedits). We have selected 22 films amongst 225. It is amazing to see the festival growing up, year after year. The quality of this edition’s films is better than ever, and I guess that everybody will like a film in this edition no matter what kind of genre he/she likes the most.

concepts like guilt, the right punishment and historic memory. We also have the French film ‘Feux’, which tells us a story about children who are passionate about science, and the consequences it should provoke in their daily life.

This year, eight directors will be with us to present their films and to talk with the audience. We will have some parallel activities (Mediometrash, La Cabina Day Zero...) and, having welcomed more than 2000 people who attended last year, we hope they will come and enjoy the festival once again. We have increased our activity in social media, so there are many more people that know about the festival and really like this particular event.

We have three Spanish-speaking films; one of them is ‘Entre Nosotros’ by the Chilean-Dutch director Paloma Aguilera. I think that this is an important film about family, exile, political positions and brotherhood.

Could you take us through some of the films that you recommend that will be screened at the festival? We have films from 11 countries. For example, ‘A New Mourning’ is a 60-minute Canadian film that deals with

I should also name ‘Aya’, an Israeli film about a car trip with two foreigners and a misunderstanding that grows over time.

For the comedy fans, I would recommend the Israeli ‘Welcome and Our Condolences’, the Polish ‘The Hamster’ or the Norwegian ‘So It Goes’ (Korsoteoria), which also opens the festival. What is the future for cinema in Spain? If you are talking about Spanish films... they have two options: not to be screened in theatres (the norm) or to struggle to

have a complete marketing campaign. The budget has to be used for producing the film, distributing and screening it in theatres and for promoting it. Struggling against the American majors is a daily struggle since they do not allow a lot of Spanish films to be screened (they want to screen theirs). I think that the government should consider a law to stop American domination of the Spanish cinemas. If most of the American-imposed films were good ones it would be more acceptable... but it’s not like that.

your new album.

SOLEDAD VÉLEZ Tell us about your recent experiences of touring Spain, Chile, Mexico and England. It was an incredible experience. I’m reminded of many funny incidents from each country and many corazones that touched me along the way, what more can you ask for? I’ve been living in Spain for six years and three years ago, I started to gig around different cities and things are going great. We have a tour for the new ‘Run with Wolves’ album coming up. Going back to Chile for the first time in five years was really special, it had such an impact that it almost felt as if I was sick to my stomach but I still enjoyed it as much as ever. The audience in Mexico is devastating, I really love that country. England received me with open arms, they were very special concerts. Finally, we did four dates in Portugal that were brutal. Memorable! Having travelled so much and seen so many cities, how do you find living in Valencia in these difficult times? Well, speaking for myself I’m doing great in Valencia. My closest friends are here, the climate is ridiculously good, there’s great arroz (rice) to enjoy and a good music scene. Every weekend there are concerts and activities. The times we are living in are awful but, people are surviving it all, here and in other cities, one way or another, like with the music scene which is trying to offer new and different things. If only the authorities would subsidize culture and reduce the IVA (tax), pero bueno! It looks like we are going to have to wait but people here are not waiting with their arms crossed and that is admirable. Tell us about the different influences of Article © 2013 24/ 7 Valencia

It’s complicated to explain because there are no specific influences on this album, more like these loose, separate sounds that took over inside me. Wolves have also been an influence, I had some problems with my nerves a year ago and I saw wolves everywhere, which, of course, weren’t really there and I had to take a rest. And after the tour of Chile and my beloved Latin America, I also took features of my culture and mixed it all in. Take us through the songs of your new album, ‘Run with Wolves’. “On Fire” This is a very special song for me, which is why I chose it to open the album. It talks about being an alcoholic and to understand a little about what goes through your mind, what you feel and how you cope with it. “Milky Way” It’s about confidence and deciding things, it’s very beautiful. To go to infinity and go all out for that person. “South Mountain” The song talks about the mountain ranges of the Andes. It explains what my roots are. “How to Disappear” It’s a song where I tell women what they should do to not be men. Society prepares us to be machistas, less and less now but it’s still a real phenomenon. I sing about what you have to do so as not to disappear. “Head Pain” My songs are always stories that I have lived and experienced, and this is one of them. I’m not going to go into details and I never will. It’s a song that has helped me to grow. “Silver Wolf” It’s a song about love that, for a woman, is

“She Is” I wrote this for my older sister. I say how she is so as not to forget her. It’s been many years without her, she’s my best friend and for the moment I only see her when I’m dreaming. “I’ve Been Gone So Long” It’s far and away the oldest song here. It’s about four years old and concerns my departure from Chile and the personal consequences of leaving there. “The Path” It’s the only song about desamor on the whole record. “She Thinks She’s a Teenager Again” Well, this song is about bipolar disorder and problems related to it. “Good Morning Darling” I wrote this song for the mother of my best friend. She’s an exceptional woman. When I had nothing in my life and I was really at rock bottom, she helped me, she loved me and she cared for me. Every day she said to me, “Good Morning, Darling.” How could I not write a song for her? Do you plan to play dates in Spain in the coming months? For the moment we have these concerts lined up: 07 Nov – Málaga @ CCP 10 Nov – Sevilla @ SEFF 14 Nov – Barcelona @ Heliogàbal 10 Jan 2014 – Segovia @ Winter Indie City There will be more dates announced soon.

FOOD

Chicken tagine with couscous By Helen Westwater La Ola Fresca This month kicks off with the Mostra Viva Cinema Mediterrani festival and so, in the hunt for a Mediterranean theme, I came across this recipe from Rick Stein in an old copy of Food Illustrated magazine. I confess I embarked on it with some trepidation… for although Rick Stein is the local hero of Cornwall (southwest England) and an acclaimed international chef, he is generally more famed for his fish dishes. Secondly, not having cooked many tagines before, the combination of ingredients involving slowly cooking raw minced onion with tons of butter seemed a little odd. Yet as with all good recipes involving ingredients that separately you hold at arm’s length but when combined together make unbelievably delicious flavours, such as those in Thai cooking, this recipe, too, dazzled with all the panache of a film star! And direct from the pot it is extraordinarily easy to make! The basis of tagine cooking is the slow tenderising of the meat. Traditionally a dish from North Africa is cooked on slow burning coals in a ceramic clay pot. The dish was designed to cook with a minimal amount of water retaining the juices of the ingredients and through the slow cooking optimizing the flavours therein. However, if you don’t have the clay pot, you can just use a heavy-based casserole dish or stainless steel pot in which a chicken will comfortably fit. What is important is to ensure that you cook the dish slowly. Add the chicken to the pan with the butter, garlic, minced onion and dried spices. Cover with tightly fitting lid, bring to the boil and then simmer for 40 minutes, spooning and turning the chicken from time to time to make sure it does not dry out. Remove the chicken, cover and leave to rest.

Tagine • 1 whole chicken • 1 large onion, finely chopped in a food processor • 4 garlic cloves, crushed • 100 gm butter • 1 tablespoon ground ginger (dried powdered) • 1 cinnamon stick • 3/4 teaspoon turmeric • 3/4 teaspoon saffron strands • 3 tablespoons lemon juice • 100 gm green olives (de-stoned) • 1 handful flat-leaf parsley • 1 handful fresh coriander • Lemon slices for decoration

Couscous • 100gm couscous per person • 1 teaspoon dried cumin seeds • 3/4 teaspoon turmeric • Enough boiling water to just cover the couscous • 1 tablespoon olive oil • Juice of 1/2 lemon, squeezed

Add the lemon juice to the sauce and increase the heat once more. Allow to reduce by about 2/3 (two-thirds). Return the chicken to the pan along with the olives and simmer for a further 20 – 25 minutes until the chicken is tender. Add the chopped herbs just before serving. Place the ingredients for the couscous in a ceramic bowl. About 10 minutes before serving, add boiling water to just cover the couscous by about 1/3 of a finger. Stir. Add the olive oil and lemon juice and stir again. Carve the chicken and place on top of the couscous, garnished with the herbs and lemon slices and enjoy. Photos © Helen Westwater.

RESTAURANT OF THE MONTH

EL BOTIJO The weather – normally quite high on the list of discussable topics with locals – is now only second on the list after ‘La Crisis’. This unseasonably hot weather is flummoxing almost everyone. I actually overheard someone the other day say, “Never in my life have I had to wear my summer wardrobe for so long!” Oh, and here’s a little money-saving tip! She went on to say that she has usually taken it all to the dry cleaners where it will safely stay until next spring! Cheap storage. It was on one of these sultry nights that we ventured out from our new abode (more on the trials and tribulations of moving, rogue removal men, downsizing and the art of double-parking later) to a tasca called El Botijo in the Barrio del Carmen. It’s one of the eateries in a row off the Plaza San Dionisio, just across the way from the all-glass Mosén Sorell Market. It’s also just a stone’s throw from Plaza Tossal so easy to find. We weren’t up to walking despite the short distance, so took a cab and took our pre-reserved table on the busy terrace. Our waiter, José, was very affable and chatty and bought us a bottle of Capellana, a denominación Utiel-Requena red wine, seven months in the barrel, and extremely good value at 13.50€ a bottle (or 2.50€ by the glass). He also bought us water even before we could ask for it, declaring it was a warm night so he thought we’d be needing it. He and Frank, the chef, had already decided what we should be trying, and so out came a degustación of six of their

key tapas served on a little wooden tray. They were Champiñones y patatas – mushrooms and potatoes, a nice combination not only of flavours, but of textures, too – followed by Chistorra cooked in cider. Chistorra is a thinner and milder version of chorizo, I actually prefer it and it is great cooked this way. We then enjoyed Longaniza with onions – this is a white sausage often served with morcilla (a black sausage) in a roll as blanco y negro. There was a little Revuelto de calabacín y queso de cabra – a tasty dish of scrambled eggs with courgette and goat’s cheese, a really delicious combination. Morteruela de Cuenca, new to me and a speciality of the house, is a rich, flavourful pâté made from partridge (or other game), rabbit, pork liver and ham and is great spread on crusty bread. The final dish in this little selection was a rich Ensaladilla Rusa (Russian salad), full of flavour and very good. All of the above as tapas portions would have been between 4.00€ – 5.20€.

We were ploughing our way through this excellent selection when a large plate of patatas bravas arrived at the table, followed almost immediately by Ibéricos – a platter of thinly sliced sausages which we both wolfed down despite being so full. And then, on top of it all, came a large salad of Goat’s cheese and mushrooms with a honey dressing. We finished with a rich and delicious chocolate cake (4.00€). We chatted between mouthfuls throughout the evening with both José and Frank about the restaurant and, of course, the weather. This restaurant is a great favourite with locals and tourists alike.

EXPULSION OF THE MORISCOS In 1609 a cruel and traumatic turn of events saw one third of the Valencian population expelled from Spain never to return. “La Expulsión de los Moriscos” (Morisco being a Spanish Muslim who had converted to Catholicism) changed the make-up and even the landscape of the Valencian community dramatically and forever. Three centuries earlier, King Jaime I of Aragon had captured the city of Valencia from the Muslims and had signed a treaty with the defeated king Zayyan. Amongst other things, the treaty recognised the Muslim population’s right to stay in the city, maintaining their language and religion in return for allegiance to King Jaime and observance and respect for the new Christian laws. Such tolerance didn’t last for too long and it was soon obvious that the Muslims would only be accepted if they played along with the ruling Christian elite. The Koran permits its followers who live amongst ‘enemies’, or those who would put themselves in danger if their faith were to be revealed, to hide their beliefs, complying when possible with Article © 2013 24/ 7 Valencia

the demands of their religion in secret and even practicing other religions. In most circumstances, this seemed to be the best option for any Muslims living in Valencia throughout the three hundred or so years after the conquest. Most Christian converts or ‘Moriscos’ lived as Christians for the world outside their front door. They spoke Valencian or Castilian, were baptised and married in Christian churches and they had Christian names. They would even celebrate the Christian saints, drink some wine and eat the odd bit of jamón (something, of course, a Valencian would never see as a sacrifice). Their true religion was practised behind closed doors. Secretly, or at least very discreetly, they would keep their Muslim names, often speak Arabic, observe their own ceremonies, make their prayers and eat meat that had been prepared and slaughtered according to their traditions. This sort of double life went on from generation to generation for nearly three and a half centuries. These people lived in peace with their Christian neighbours and there were

few or no physical or racial differences to speak of. They all, for the most part, descended from the Ibero-Romans who had been invaded by first the Goths and then the Moors yet, as the descendants of Muslims, they remained an underclass. This stiffened their resolve to keep their true religion alive in their homes. They felt that this was their land and it had been taken from them, a land that the Muslims had previously ruled for nearly 800 years. When Muslim Barbary pirates attacked the Valencia coast, some Moriscos would secretly celebrate the attacks and some even collaborated with the corsarios like the infamous Dragut ‘the Admiral’, still remembered in the folklore of places like Cullera for his ferocious assaults on the town. Predictably, rumours soon spread that these ‘new Christians’ were a fifth column living amongst the people of Spain ready to help invaders from Turkey or North Africa. Some things never change, do they? Gradually these feelings became stronger and more prevalent and, in 1582, Phillip II


twentyfoursevenvalencia 35

raised the question of expulsion of the Moriscos. This didn’t happen at once, there was much debate about how the ‘problem’ could be solved. Some of the suggestions bandied about show the scale of the growing hatred towards the Morisco population. In 1587 Martín de Salvatierra, the pious and god-fearingly charitable bishop of Segorbe, proposed they should all be castrated and shipped off to Terranova (Newfoundland). That same year Doctor Hidalgo, a prior of the Order of Calatrava, suggested they should all be put on a boat to America which would not be sufficiently seaworthy to complete the crossing and the problem could be ‘washed away’ at sea. It wasn’t until 1609, with clergymen frothing at the mouth and getting more and more excited as they thought up ever more dastardly plans for the Moriscos, that the order for their expulsion was finally signed by the new King, Phillip III. And the first place they’d be expelled from was to be Valencia. More Moriscos (around 126,000) lived here than any other part of Spain. Not everybody was carried along with the push to see the back of the Muslim descendants. In Valencia in particular there were dissenting voices, but not necessarily out of feelings of brotherly love. This was going to be an economic disaster for the Reino de Valencia. Thirty-six per cent of the population of the Valencia kingdom were ‘Moriscos’ and most of them occupied the lands in the mountainous interior where farming was more difficult and yielded less, earning a meagre living which would be unacceptable to even the poorest Christians. The Valencian aristocracy protested: “Who would work these lands?” and, more importantly, “Who

would pay the rents after the expulsion?” Two Valencia landowners, Felipe Boil of Manises and Juan Blanes de Berenguer of Canet went to Madrid to ask the court to reconsider. Some Valencians, however, took a different view. Juan de Ribera, the archbishop of Valencia, was a staunch supporter of the expulsion. He was more of a soldier and politician than a religious man and showed little mercy to the Morisco population but, not all that surprisingly for the times, he was later made a saint. He is still venerated in Valencia and became known as the ‘Patriarch’ with the Plaza del Patriarca in the city centre named after him. On 22 September 1609, the decree of expulsion was published in Valencia with Aragon, Catalonia, Navarra and Castile to follow. The Valencian Moriscos were given just three days to make their way to their designated port and await a ship to take them out of the country. They were allowed to take their money and any property they could carry. Anything they couldn’t carry they had to sell at knock-down prices, as everyone knew they were desperate to sell. On the road and at the ports they were given no protection and suffered constant attacks of violence and abuse. They were easy prey to bandits who knew they were carrying all their worldly possessions. Everything was meticulously planned. For some reason, right through history, cold bureaucracy seems to come into its own when it comes to crimes against humanity. Ships of the Spanish and Italian Navy were waiting at the designated ports (Alicante, Jávea / Xàbia, Valencia, Moncófar / Moncofa and Vinzaroz / Vinaròs) along with other merchant ships hired out for the purpose. Many of them took the opportunity to

rob the Moriscos as soon as they got out of the port. From 1 October to the middle of January, 111,396 people were transported out of the Valencia region. Before the expulsion, the population of Muslim descendants in the region was around 126,000. Some had escaped and children under six years old were exempt, but most of the 15,000 difference was made up of people who’d been murdered on their way to the ports. In just a matter of months, the Kingdom of Valencia had lost 36% of its population and it would take more than a century to return to the population figures of 1609. The interior mountain regions where the Moriscos had cultivated the land became deserted and more than 200 villages disappeared forever. As for the Moriscos themselves, in many cases they found even more suffering at the end of the journey. Many of them were imprisoned, killed or sold as slaves when they arrived at the Muslim countries they were sent to. The powerful Turkish Empire took no interest in their plight. Morocco was immersed in a civil war and they were attacked and robbed by nomad tribes in Algeria. One place they were well received was Tunisia, where they settled, especially in the Tesur Valley, and made a significant contribution to the country. This was one of the darkest moments in Spanish history but, despite this cruel attempt to eradicate it, the influence of the Islamic civilisation is still evident in modern Spain in its language, traditions and culture 400 years after the expulsion.

VALENCIA FOOTBALL

VALENCIA’S INCONSISTENCY Valencia fans came into October full of expectation and anticipation. The team had won three consecutive league games in the latter part of September and conceded only one goal in the process. A well-earned draw against Athletic Bilbao at the new San Mamés stadium in the first game of October further endorsed that feeling. In that match Valencia had taken the lead through Banega just before half -time and only a late equaliser from Rico gave the Basque side a share of the spoils. The following weekend several Los Chés players were on international duty, so Djukic used the empty space in the fixture calendar to get his fringe players some much-needed match practice. The Tuesday before the final games for World Cup qualification took place, a relatively strong side went to play local club Burjassot CF as part of their centenary celebrations. Around 2000 local fans turned out to see Valencia play the Regional Preferente Group 2 club and the visitors ran out 7-1 victors. Dani Parejo skippered the side and Paco Alcácer, Fede and Piatti were amongst the scorers. It was then back to league action for Valencia and it was the turn of Real Sociedad to grace Mestalla. Sociedad have made a disappointing start to their campaign and for many of the

home fans this was a chance for a little revenge. There was still a bitter taste lingering around Mestalla by the manner which Sociedad had snatched the final Champions League spot away from Valencia on the final day of last season. Unfortunately, the Basques had other ideas regarding payback and the dazzling French under-21 international Antoine Greizmann dominated the game for the visitors… allowing Sociedad to head back north with all three points, and a well-deserved 2-1 away victory. The only shining light in the game was Pabón scoring his first league goal for Valencia with virtually the last kick of the game to halve the deficit. The Europa League match with St. Gallen of Switzerland was the next competitive match to take place at Mestalla, and Djukic rang the changes by giving starts to Bernat, Romeo, Piatti, Fede and Alcácer. All five players have had little or no league playing time and all performed admirably in one of Valencia’s best performances of the season to date. Romeo looked particularly comfortable playing just in front of the back four, and Alcácer looked very sharp from the start, as highlighted with his quick response to a rebound that put Valencia in the lead after just 10 minutes. Two other first-half goals from Fede and one from Ricardo Costa made the match as good as over after 45 minutes. Canales added a fifth before Nater gave St. Gallen a consolation goal as the game entered its final quarter. The opposition were not the best but the home side clinically disposed

of the Swiss challenge, to put their Europa League assault firmly back on track. Valencia CF currently lie behind Swansea in second place on six points, one point behind the Welsh side, but three ahead of Gallen and five points better off than Russian side Kuban Krasnodar. With three games left for each of the four clubs, and two teams qualifying for the business end of the competition, Valencia look well-placed to progress. The following Sunday Los Chés took the short journey to El Madrigal and a confrontation with local rivals Villarreal. Fede and Bernat kept their place in the team after good showings against St. Gallen, whilst Romeo, Alcácer and Piatti were unfortunate to find themselves on the bench. Valencia once again showed their inconsistency and defensive frailties as they were easily brushed aside by the ‘Yellow Submarine’. The former Spurs star Giovani dos Santos, who was a transfer target for Valencia last summer, was the main architect in the downfall, scoring two of his team’s four goals as they ran out convincing winners. Defender Ricardo Costa again scored for Valencia to give him three league goals for the season, just one goal behind Jonas and level with centreforward Postiga. Pressure was again piling up on Djukic from the press and fans alike for a positive result. Bottom of the table Almería would seem like the perfect chance to break the two-game losing streak in the league and get everyone back on side with some exciting football. Things started well with Jonas converting a dubious penalty just after the half hour


twentyfoursevenvalencia 37

mark, but a string of missed chances and two counter-attacking strikes from Almería gave the visitors from Andalusia their first victory of the season and three points. Howls of derision came from the fans after the game but they tended to vent their anger vocally towards the Valencia sporting director Braulio Vázquez rather than the manager Djukic. Either way, both positions look precarious. The president of Valencia Football Club Amadeo Salvo had previously stated his public support for Djukic but that now seems to be wavering. With Salvo away in China meeting with the real estate company Dalian Wanda regarding investment into the club, any immediate decision on the pair’s future was put on ice. This gave Djukic time to prepare for the next game, away to Getafe, and with skipper Ricardo Costa declaring the team were firmly behind the manager, Valencia strode into the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez and came away with all three points.

The bad-tempered encounter saw the away side’s shot stopper Diego Alves having to go off injured after 13 minutes and four of the home side cautioned by the time the game had finished. Pabón scored the winning goal of the game just before half time, hitting a 25-yard rocket into the top corner of the net, but slipping as he made contact with the ball.

a heartbreaking last-minute winner by Ronaldo for Real Madrid prevented them going through October unbeaten. Their first game of November pitted Levante at home against Granada where they lost to the visitors who scored in the last minute of the match.

The extraordinary goal was the highlight of an ordinary game but the match finished on a sour note when Valencia’s replacement keeper Guaita and Getafe defender Ruano got involved in a brawl and had to be separated by teammates and officials.

Anyone wishing to watch football in Valencia can get tickets for home games from the box offices at the respective grounds.

Things are much more sedate at Levante. Manager Caparrós is quietly and efficiently building a team that are firmly entrenched with the pack fighting for a Europa League place.

24/7 VALENCIA used to be called ‘Music Box’ in the Barrio del Carmen but has recently changed its name to Rewind Club (C/ Pintor Zariñena, 16). It has completely changed its look inside with loads of comfy sofas and a warm, reddish, retro decor which has attracted a new wave of cool hipsters on the hunt for ‘80s music and more, where at Rewind Club they most definitely have found it;).

All right, all right, all right ...someone once told me “You know, the best thing I love about young women is that I get older and they stay the same age;).” Well this may be true, but what people don’t tell you is when you get older, you actually want to start listening to the opposite sex, too!!! Due to this fact, I decided to go out with a few friends from my rugby team on the search for the best bars and clubs around town for, let’s say, mostly the more mature clientele ...Sorry, let me put that another way, for people who work for their cash and don’t mind spending it, therefore enabling them to go to that next level;). We started off at Upper Club (Gran Vía Marqués del Turia, 40) for a few warmup drinks to get us all in the mood. Well, actually, if truth be told, my flatmate and I had already destroyed a bottle of Absolut Vodka and a six pack of Red Bull, so by this time our wings were firmly strapped on, if you know what I mean;). When we got there it was about 01.00h and fairly busy. The house remixes of current hits was as good as to be expected and the upmarket people were all looking their best with some beautiful women, too. During the week they have live music, comedy nights, intercambio language exchange on Tuesday nights and there is now Mediterranean cuisine as well as a fantastic selection of gins and other spirits... After that, we left the Cánovas zone,

crossed the impressive Calatrava bridge and made our way over to Bar 48 (Paseo Alameda, 48) for a cheeky chupito and then On the Rocks (Paseo Alameda, 45) afterwards for a few G&Ts, which was handy because it’s right next door;). In 48, you can pick up free tickets for Moon Nightclub (Av. de las Cortes Valencianas, 58), more of which later… and in ‘On The Rocks’ you can get free entrances to Mya Nightclub so ask someone behind the bar to point you in the direction of Pablo, the public relations guy). Moon Nightclub used to be called Red VLC, but now is part of the Salamandra Group which own numerous nightclubs / restaurants and bars around Valencia, including Le Premier Disco (C/ Eduardo Boscá, 27) a new name for a club that used to be called Treinta y Tantos. They are trying to change its public to a more sexy hell-yeah-that’s-what-I’m- talking-about kinda crowd with good house music rather than its previous last-night-atthe-bingo-club-grab-a-granny-end-ofseason-ball status. Good luck to you guys, honestly it’s a great venue that needed a makeover and this could be it. So while we were in the neighbourhood we popped over the road to Mya just for an hour. It’s a beautiful setting in the modernistic City of Arts & Sciences. It’s more commercial house for a younger crowd. Changing tack completely in search of a more bohemian, alternative clubbers crowd, we then got a taxi to the old centre near Torres de Quart to what

As Rewind closes at 04:30h at weekends, we head off to finish our dancing & drinking & laughing mighty marathon at Moon Club by the Palacio de Congresos as we had been given the free tickets earlier in the evening. For all of you out there who are reading this who know me, well let’s just say that I thought it would be rude not to, especially considering the fact that it’s a 5-minute walk from my house;). Anyway, all in all, it was a good night and it was the first time in a long time that I saw Valencia booming again with groups of people eating out with their friends and dancing until the early hours of the morning, and this time the majority were adults and had good chat to boot;). This is a buzzing place for instrumental house music with deep bass lines, gogo dancers, a 30-something, quite welldressed crowd with many coming from the surrounding pueblos. There’s a great restaurant here as well with a tasty menu for 25€, with all the red wine you can drink included and discounts for the clubbing afterwards. This Saturday, 9 November, Dom Scott will be back behind the decks at BCool Urban Club (C/ Polo y Peyrolón, 11) for a top night of dancing to great music and making new friends, hope to see you all down there, I know I will be;). They have Erasmus nights on Monday with eclectic music and more of a house crowd at weekends. Have a great November and remember, if you’re feeling down, music is the answer to your problems. All you have to do is jump in the shower, put on a smiley face, have a few shots, go out, and dance your little cotton socks off!!;).

VALENCIA WORLD studied journalism, and wrote for a few magazines, but wasn’t patient enough to pursue a career in it. I did learn something about writing, though, and decided to go back to university, and got an MA in comparative literature. I’ve moved around a lot, as well as Cádiz and London, I’ve lived in South America, New York and Seville, but literature has always been very important throughout my life. Part of the reason why I moved back to Spain was to have the space and peace of mind to write more, something that was incredibly difficult to find in London.

DAVID CANO FERNÁNDEZ Tell us something about your background, work, travels and experiences I was born in La Línea de la Concepción, a town in the province of Cádiz, right next to Gibraltar. It is, quite literally, the line between Spain and Great Britain. Because of this, it suffers from all the typical problems of a border town, relying on Gibraltar for employment, and acting as a channel for contraband and smuggling, which is how many families survive there. It is one of the most deprived areas of Spain, but for me it’s my favourite place in the world. The people are incredibly open and generous, and I have a huge and amazing family there. I moved to central London as a child and was brought up and educated there, so I have always been aware of this feeling of not quite fitting in, of being a confused mix of both cultures. In certain respects, I feel Spanish, but, having lived in London for so long, I missed out on a lot of the experiences and cultural references that make up a person’s national identity. Saying that, I have never felt British. I would identify myself as a Londoner, because it’s a city that is full of people with foreign roots. As for work, I have done a large number of crappy, menial jobs. They only thing I’ve ever, truly wanted to do is to write. I Article © 2013 24/ 7 Valencia

How does living in Valencia compare to living in London? I only moved here a few months ago, but from what I’ve seen and experienced so far, it is very different. London is one of the greatest cities on Earth for culture and history; it is also, an unforgiving, rough, and lonely place to be for a staggering number of people. This isn’t acknowledged by many people outside of the UK. They see the sites, the museums, the attractions; it’s like a giant cultural amusement park, yet it suffers from some of the worst social problems in Europe. Obviously, many of these problems exist in Spain, but I believe that you can afford a much higher standard of living here than in London, at the expense, perhaps, of opportunity. For that reason, I’ll always love London. Despite some of the ugly things I witnessed there, I would not have been offered the same educational opportunities if I had stayed in La Línea. Valencia itself, as a city, is great. Luckily, I have work so it’s not overwhelming or stressful. I’m at ease here. In London, I felt like I was always looking over my shoulder. How do you see the future for Spain? I am embarrassingly uninformed about Spanish politics. However, I do see the total disillusionment and lack of trust people have in the government. I don’t think this is a recent development. My grandparents, who suffered greatly during the Civil War like many Spanish families, have a very jaded attitude towards politics. As frustrating and difficult as the situation is, corrupt or

incompetent politicians do not dictate every aspect of our lives, relationships, or sense of well-being and happiness. I see Spain becoming more multi-cultural in the future, which is a wonderful thing. I don’t see this as incompatible with some of the traditional aspects of Spanish society. The Spanish concept of the family unit is a really powerful and important force that has been crucial, particularly during economically difficult times. As long as people are open and accepting, I am quite optimistic about Spain, it is a very unique and special place. Could you tell us about your new writers group? Yes, it’s a free meet-up for writers every two weeks. The main objective is to set writing exercises based on a theme, short stories mainly, which are then subsequently discussed and critiqued in the group. It’s a way to stay motivated and keep up the habit of writing as much as possible, which is the most difficult thing about writing. It’s often a solitary pursuit, because of this it’s quite easy to live inside your own head. I want to create a space where writers can come together, regardless of ability or experience, and share ideas and help each other progress. Of course, there is also a social element to it, but the point is to improve and, for those who feel ready, approach the issue of getting published.

SHOPPING

SoHo del Carmen Set in the heart of the Barrio del Carmen, ‘SoHo del Carmen’ is a shop where you can buy, sell and trade. On sale here you will find decorative objects, antiques, jewellery, and interesting clothes with excellent brands including suits, dresses and vintage styles, too. There are Levi’s for 10€ and garments from 3€. ‘SoHo’ stands out in Valencia because you can find a bit of London, Berlin, and the USA amongst their clothes, including military parkas, American baseball jackets, Nina Ricci and Christian Dior suits. It’s easy to find something here that will then become your favourite piece of clothing! Members of the 24/7 Valencia team have been shopping here for quite some time now… Owner Sonia Martín has Valencian parents but she herself was born in the United States. She has brought with her the concepts and ideas regarding fashion influenced by the many years she spent in New York, which is why the name ‘SoHo’

came about for the shop. It’s clear to see that all this has created a cosmopolitan and international atmosphere in the shop. It’s a place in constant progression and movement and that is why SoHo will be launching their own line of shirts and vintage clothes brand at the end of November 2013, which is their 1st anniversary! SoHo del Carmen clearly contributes to raising the demand for recycled clothing by selecting only quality, fashionable items that can be resold, and offering used clothes at low prices in a clean, fun store with a boutique atmosphere. Customers receive cash or trade for clothes from their home, in addition to simply shopping. People can buy brand new clothing using trade only, no cash needed. The shop offers current labels and desirable vintage at bargain prices. Check it out! Just a stone’s throw from La Lonja and a brief stroll from Mercado Central.
