THE MANAGER of Brighton’s premier gay football team, Lee Towsey (above), and his team have scored a major role this season with the release of their film on the silver screen. The documentary of the Brighton Bandits will be one of the gay highlights of Brighton’s Film Festival this autumn. Following the highs and lows of the soccer season, the film celebrates the lives of our local boys in the first ever in depth doc about a gay team. “We did it because we thought it was great PR and would get people interested in the team,” says the Bandit’s Manager, Lee. “There’s this impression that gay football is different to straight football – that we’re a bunch of woofters on the pitch – but we’re just the same.” With plenty of on-field action and off-field shower scenes, it’s enough to turn the biggest soccer-hating homo into a Bandit fan.

As Prisoner: Cell Block H is released on DVD, we ask the shows’s undisputed star, Val Lehman: was it (Went)worth it?

Please don’t let this be the peak of my career

BooKS by Peter Burton TV/DVD by Niall McMurray Mamma Mia! Dirty White Boy Survivors BBC1, tbc

You can often gauge the nation’s mood by what’s on television, and what with this and Dead Set, it’s fairly clear Britain is in the grip of a death fixation at the moment. obviously, this begs the following question - should we stop reading horoscopes, switch off newsnight and turn to drama producers for glimpses of the future? If we do, it might be as well to stock up on canned goods and fortify the cupboard under the stairs, because the omens aren’t good, frankly. If Survivors is anything to go by, we’re all about to be wiped out by some terrible killer virus, with only Martha Jones Freema agyeman and Max Beesley left around to propagate the species. This could be the cue for some frightfully desperate shagging scenes, but this being prime time BBc1 I would doubt it. Instead, expect lots of ‘ooh, isn’t London spooky when it’s deserted’ shots and good use of quarries. not exactly Britannia High, is it?

Out Mon 24 Nov

MaMMa MIa, ladies and gentlemen, is now the biggest eVer hit at the uk box office, to the tune of nearly 70 million quid. Let’s just put that in perspective, shall we? Bigger than Titanic, bigger than Star wars, bigger than Sister act 2: Back in the Habit. There are probably lots of frightfully dull socio-economic reasons why this is so, but when you’ve got Meryl Streep in dungarees belting out The winner Takes It all, why would you bother looking any further? That the greatest actress of our Time™ was willing to star sums up the whole Mamma Mia phenomenon – hitherto sensible people, with reasonable expectations of plot, character development and direction, are powerless to resist when faced with greek sunshine, the aBBa back catalogue and Pierce Brosnan. It’s unspeakably bad - terrifyingly so in places. But it’s also one of the best films of the year, and in a way, thoroughly deserving of its place in cinema history. Just don’t ask why.

sensational - it was just a matter of course,” she explains. “In australia it was never discussed, never used as a publicity tool and the press never commented on it. But with British journalists,” she continues, warming to her theme, “it’s nearly always the first thing they ask! I had a go at Jonathan ross on his own show - I said to him, if you have a large group of same-sex people together, a number of them are going to be homosexual – it is a fact of life, it isn’t sensational, it just is. That showed him!” clearly this is one woman not to mess with - but then if you watched Prisoner, you’d already know that. Prisoner: Cell Block H is out now on Shock Entertainment DVD. www.val-lehman.com

THIS STarTS off as a slightly more down tempo alphabeat than normal, but halfway through it kicks in, with their usual brand of kitsch pop music. The vocals are much more equally shared than on some of their previous releases, and this works to their advantage. Look out for the amazing ultrabeat remix, making this a full on hands in the air dancefloor filler!.

Major Benjy by Guy Fraser-Samson e F BenSon’S six novels about social-cimbing rivals emmeline Lucas (Lucia) and elizabeth Mapp originally appeared between 1920 and 1929. They were much admired by comic writers such as noel coward and nancy Mitford and were eagerly snapped-up when reissued in the 1970’s. The books eventually became a television series with a cult following in which geraldine Mcewan and Prunella Scales played the redoubtable ladies. Because the Benson books proved so popular (here and in america), novelist Tom Holt was allowed to write two further adventures (Lucia in wartime, 1985); Lucia Triumphant, 1986). now guy Fraser-Sampson has entered the lists with Major Benjy, a new romp featuring a more than usually malicious Miss Mapp and introducing Lucia only in the penultimate paragraph – which suggests there may be further adventures in the offing. Major Benjy is built around the follies and misfortunes of Mapp’s hapless former Indian army neighbour, her attempts to trap him into matrimony and her dastardly schemes to retain her iron grip on the inhabitants of Tilling, the Sussex village (based upon rye) where they dwell. Fraser-Sampson has a fine eye for comic detail and permits himself a frankness Benson could only have imagined – there can be no doubting the nature of Quaint Irene and Lucy’s relationship. Major Benjy is nicely fleshed out (he’s more than just a posturing drunk) and Miss Mapp has become a real horror. Major Benjy is a successful recreation of much-loved characters from a bygone age.

Major Benjy (£9.99) is out now published by Troubadour.

Miles Away

one oF the best songs from ‘Hard candy’. ‘Miles away’ is a stripped back and more heartfelt Madonna than we have heard of late. Leaving behind the generic r&B/Hip Hop sound and replacing it with a less overproduced beat and an accoustic guitar is Madonna at her best. Lets hope the next album doesn’t follow the crowd and she once again uses her creativity to produce a unique sound.

BABy SISTERS in showbiz don’t usually have it that easy – as Dannii Minogue might well testify – and so far, Solange Knowles is proving to be no exception. Despite releasing a fantastic, Freemasons enhanced single I Decided earlier this summer and a far more cohesive album than big sis Beyonce has yet managed, Solange’s star has yet to ascend further than the horizon of mild popularity. To rectify this, she’s heading out on her first UK tour, and plays at Komedia on Tues 11 Nov. Reputedly an electric live performer, Solange might just be the one to buck the trend and eclipse her big sister.

Things are taking a distinctly naughty turn this month, as the Brighton Theatre Group bring the musical production of The Full Monty to the Theatre Royal from 11-15 Nov. In a storyline which is suddenly all-too current, six unemployed industrial workers struggle to support their families during a harsh recession. Their solution – to form an all-male strip troupe – is initially met with derision, but as is the way with these things, determination, guts and good old fashioned hard work win the day. All six of the leading men will be baring everything for the sake of their art, so this promises to be a very popular show!

If you have felt there has always been something holding you back: stress, anxiety, a fear, a phobia, a habit, sexual problems, your weight, low self esteem, depression, an experience that has always stayed with you or something you just can’t put your finger on?

aLong wITH his american partner (both senses of the word) Jorge, clayton Littlewood runs Soho designer clothes store Dirty white Boy. His book – adapted from his blog – follows fourteen months in the life of the author and his lover, the shop and the inhabitants of Soho as observed by Littlewood from his position (snooping) in the window of the shop. Dirty white Boy abounds with cHaracTerS, though there is not quite enough incident to amount to a plot to tug the reader through the narrative. undoubtedly the strongest thread is provided by Leslie, an elderly quean whose conversation sparkles with Polari (the so-called lost language of queans) as he tells stories of his past, most especially of his great lost love, charlie, who, back in the sixties, couldn’t quite cope with being queer. Leslie’s conversational tone is beautifully captured and he really speaks to the reader from the page. other characters who emerge strongly from the text include Sue and Maggie, the lesbians who run the brothel which operates from above the shop, and Ben, a teenage hustler who wistfully disappears from the book much as he probably will from life. a sense of historic Soho (rimbaud and Verlaine, Quentin crisp) percolates through the book – a

the opportunity to create another. I wouldn’t have minded working on neighbours or Home and away, but no-one would employ me!” Fearful of this fate, Val left Prisoner in 1983, with the character subsequently dying off-screen in a fire some time later. was she involved in the decision to terminate Bea Smith? “no - they asked me to go back to the show a number of times and I refused. I had a mole in the storyline department who said the reason was they got sick to death of the fans phoning up to ask ‘when’s Bea coming back?’, so they killed me off! Prisoner famously embraced gay characters long before other soaps, one of the many reasons it has a such a huge, enduring gay fanbase. I wondered how Val felt about this. “we were waY ahead of our time, and the thing was, we didn’t make it

mad. I get twitchy if I haven’t written anything new for a while. I start trying to remember if I can even actually write songs. It’s like a bowel movement: something that not only purges and cleanses but also affirmation that my body is a creative organism capable of such a movement. That is what Stars and Sons is to me.”

How is the word spreading ? The attention has come from the recordings really. We’re releasing our single In The Ocean on a limited edition 7-inch vinyl through Alcopop on 17 Nov, which is great and we’ve just been asked to do five dates with a band from America called Okkerville River, which is a big boost.

Put it this way: whitney Houston wouldn’t have lasted long in wentworth women’s correctional Facility. with the show’s first episodes now released on DVD, I asked Val if she found it strange to still be talking about the show twenty-five years after she left it. “oh, gosh. I remember saying to myself at the time ‘please don’t let this be the peak of my career!’” she laughs. “well, looks like it pretty well has been! Prisoner is a great show and I love it, but you know what? I think I have more than one character in me, but no-one’s ever given me

‘WE GOT IT!’ publication 3SIXTY stood together with the city’s other community publication G Scene to support Revenge’s application. 3SIXTY organised an on-line petition in February, securing hundreds of readers’ signatures, which were added to the two thousand collected from Revenge customers, demonstrating the over whelming community support for the project. The weight of opinion had the desired affect as planning councillors took the unusual step of visiting the roof terrace themselves and overruling the conservation officer. “We’d like to thank all of our customers for their support and a special mention to David Harvey, publisher of one80news and 3SIXTY, James Ledward publisher of GScene and Cllr Paul Elgood, who gave up a lot of time and energy to help us over the past few months.” said Andrew. Club Revenge has already begun discussions with the architects and interior designers who will transform the Club before next summer. Revenge, which recently celebrated its 15th birthday, has persistently come out tops in awards over the years as the best club in the South East, giving it iconic status for many from all over the UK.

REVENGE’S OWNERS and staff are celebrating after winning a year long planning battle to revamp the legendary club. Key to the development was securing permission to transform its flat roof into a sunset and night time roof terrace. one80news learned of the decision as Revenge owners Stagfleet sent us the text: “We got it!!” as the decision came through. “The development will mean Revenge will continue to lead gay clubland in Brighton and act as a beacon for tourism to the city,” said a jubilant General Manager Andrew Roberts. “We’re all over the moon about the decision as at times it was touch and go.” Some local residents had objected, claiming that noise from a roof terrace would affect them, but plans to create a high-tec sound proof acoustic screen satisfied health and safety officers who recommended the go ahead. However, the Council’s conservation officer put a spanner in the works by objecting to the screen citing that it would not be in keeping with the historic façade. Given the Van Alen Development on the seafront many saw this as a bizarre argument and stepped in to campaign with Revenge. Both one80news and its sister

It’s hard not to get uptight with someone close to you who isn’t making any effort to help themselves. This isn’t the right time to be too harsh. Trouble could be stirred if you speak your mind too strongly. With careful handling you might get others to change their ways so be patient when you handle difficult relationships.

TAURUS - 21 APRIL - 21 MAY

With your ruler Venus changing signs, you should find an outlet for your adventurous mood by doing something different. If you’re interested in someone new, don’t waste any opportunity to get to know them better. If you’re happily hitched, your partner’s openness will warm your heart.

Friends who live some distance away are in the best position to help you fulfil a need for change. A change of scene will satisfy your longing for something new. You must aim to let more of your innermost feelings known to those you care about in close relationships.

CANCER - 22 JUNE - 23 JULY

The next two weeks could bring a low energy phase. If you’re feeling low, you need time to build up your strength. You shouldn’t rush into taking on new commitments or making long term deals when you aren’t feeling up to it and you should think about consulting a professional even if it costs you a fee for advice.

LEO - 24 JULY - 23 AUGUST

Despite your enthusiasm to get going on projects other people don’t seem so keen. Trying to encourage others to take an interest is like talking to a brick wall. Snatch a moment of pleasure for yourself now. If you’re shopping you will find the best bargains if you opt to go it alone so you can stay focussed.

To make the fairytale a reality, Renaissance, the wedding design company, has created three sensational Swan Chariots available for civil partnerships. The carriages come in fuschia pink, vibrant orange and deep royal blue. For Valentine’s Day, Renaissance has teamed up with one80news to offer the use of a swan at a civil partnership, wedding or event.

Unexpected developments make this a tough time for making plans. Career affairs move along effectively but there are other areas where you could do better. Whether you need a bigger budget or more willing hands, if you can get the right support behind you, you will have a better chance of achieving your aims.

LIBRA - 24 SEPTEMBER - 23 OCTOBER

Opportunities coming your way in the days ahead should help you move closer to achieving your ambitions if you can resist any temptation to be sidetracked. If others seem to have nothing better to do than waste their time, be sure they don’t waste yours. There are sure to be some things you’ll feel very strongly about but its best to not shout too loudly as other people may not be so receptive to your needs and ideas.

SCORPIO - 24 OCTOBER - 22 NOVEMBER

You’ve always been reliable but are you starting to promise too much to others? You’re trying to please everyone, but there’s only so much you can do. Start reducing your commitments and organise your life more sensibly. A close friend’s advice about it being time to live life on your own terms is worth following!

You may be reluctant to accept someone’s offers of help because you’ll feel in their debt; rest assured that any gifts or help given will have no strings attached. If others are being kind to you, it’s because they genuinely care. Relationships will start to be more harmonious with Venus gliding into your sign over the next few days and people you live and work with will seem more helpful and considerate now.

AQUARIUS - 21 JANUARY - 19 FEBRUARY

Competition only applies to an event within a 25 mile radius of Brighton. Prize includes one swan of your choice and attendant for a 3hr period. Prize is valid until 25th November 2008. The swan chariots are restricted to one person at a time and are pulled by hand, so cannot be used on public highways/over long distances. Other swans, or a longer period, are available at standard rates. This prize is non-transferable and there is no cash altenative. Usual one80news conditions apply (available on request). Closing date for entries is 7 Feb 2008.

A social gathering could have rewarding repercussions if you mix business with pleasure. You never know who you might bump into. Take any chance that comes your way to put in extra time at work to boost your prospects and take a leading role in plans and decisions that will affect your future.

Working for a charity is spiritually rewarding and surprisingly empowering. You get a lot of pleasure from helping other people help themselves.

Winner of Issue 16 Competition Time!: Jo Uwins won two tickets to see Godspell at The Theatre Royal.

NANCY SPAIN (1917-1964) was a popular journalist (Daily Express, Woman, News of the World, Good Housekeeping), television star (What’s My Line, Juke Box Jury), author of children’s books (The Tiger Who... series), thrillers (Death Before Wicket, Death Goes on Skis, Cinderella Goes to the Morgue), a biography of her ancestor Isabella Beeton (of cookbook fame), autobiography and compiler of a particularly gruesome cookery book. Most of all, Spain was a personality with a larger than life – some might say, archetypal, lesbian personality who kept the British public guessing about her alleged romance with equally gay television personality Gilbert Harding. This ‘trouserwearing character’ – to use the title of Rose Collis’s biography – was educated at the famous Roedean School which dominates the skyline on the coast road between Brighton and Rottingdean. She was killed in a ‘plane crash – along with longterm girlfriend, editor and publisher, Joan Werner Laurie – on her way to the Grand National on an assignment for the News of the World.
