hear today...

It’s not just us, is it? Gigs are getting much, much louder, right? Maybe it’s our maternal love for Brighton, but we’re genuinely concerned for people’s hearing. As our dad always reminds us, “You only get one pair of ears.” What’s going on? Is it something to do with the fact that soundsystems are much better now, or maybe that sound engineers all wear fancy frequency-balanced earplugs? Either way, music is too noisy and something’s got to give. When we went to see Public Image Ltd, who crammed the Concorde with extra speakers, we honesty thought we’d gone deaf. Two days later things still weren’t right. Orbital, Sunn O))) and Swans were similarly worrying. This isn’t some ‘health and safety gone mad’ stance – members of the SOURCE staff have got permanent tinnitus and can confirm that it’s no fun at all. So in this month where there’s so much going on, look after your lugholes with some decent earplugs (and venues, please do your part to keep people safe too). You don’t want that Great Escape performance to be memorable as the last time you could hear the sounds of crickets in the heat, children playing, or your lover calling you to bed for sordid sex.

Win A £540 Create Shoot

One of our favourite parts of the month is putting one of our favourite bands or artists in front of the lens of Create Studio’s Kenny Mc Cracken and seeing the amazing pictures that emerge. It’s sad that we only get to do it 12 times a year so this competition to win a shoot with Kenny worth £540 is something we had to be part of. Email hello@welovecreate.com with your current band/artist photo and a link to some music online (Soundcloud, YouTube, Bandcamp etc) and Create will post it to facebook.com/ welovecreate for SOURCE readers to vote for their favourites.

Levellers Anniversary

Folk-rock legends Levellers are set to celebrate their 25th anniversary with a rare hometown gig at St. Bartholomew’s Church on July 19th. The band also release a re-recording of ‘The Recruiting Sergeant’ (from their 2012 album ‘Static On The Airwaves’) on a five-track anti-war EP this month. The new version features collaborations with Sussex traditional singers The Copper Family, as well as musicians Shona Kipling and Dan Walsh.

Writers’ Award

A new literary award launched by Brighton-based charity Creative Future aims to discover gifted unsung writers from disadvantaged backgrounds who would otherwise find it hard to get their work recognised. Poet, playwright and broadcaster Lemn Sissay will be judging the award with winners being announced at an awards ceremony at Charleston house in September. The theme of the competition is ‘The Spark’. Download an entry form at creativefuture.org.uk

Resonance radio

Internationally renowned London station Resonance FM hosts a weekend of radio broadcasts from the Brighthelm Centre during The Great Escape. Hosts include comedian and critic Stewart Lee, DJ and collector Jonny Trunk and artist Bob & Roberta Smith, and the residency features live sessions and guests throughout the festival. There’ll also be a pop-up record shop to drop in on. Resonance’s Great Escape broadcasts run Thurs 16th - Sat 18th, tune in online at resonancefm.com

Label Fayre

Also getting involved in The Great Escape this year, Brighton label Faux Discx host an Independent Record Fayre at West Hill Hall on Sat 18th. As well as Faux Discx – run by Cold Pumas/The Soft Walls musician Dan Reeves – other labels taking part include FatCat, Upset The Rhythm, Gringo, Italian Beach Babes and more. Following the Fayre, there’s an evening of live music from Cold Pumas, Stuart Warwick, Lab Coast, Vision Fortune and Teardrop Factory.

Psych party

SOURCE teams up with One Inch Badge and ESP for a psychedelic all-night show at the Concorde 2 this summer. The Endless Summer Psychedelia party gets underway at sunset on Sat 10th August, presenting heady music, live art, tripped out visuals and freakery until the morning light. The event’s shaped by modern psych maestro Richard Norris (Time & Space Machine, Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve), with live bands TBC.

Fringe Nights

Juice 107.2 expands its Brighton Fringe coverage this year with a new radio show, transmitting four nights a week throughout the festival. Brighton Fringe Nights is broadcast Monday to Thursday, 10pm til midnight, with hosts including TV and radio presenter Toby Amies, critic Garry Mulholland, comedian Romesh Ranganathan and cabaret impresario Boogaloo Stu. The show features a mix of Fringe previews and reviews with guest interviews and performers from across the festival programme.

The Greys

Melting Vinyl have started promoting shows at Hanover pub The Greys, starting with London folksinger and former Laura Marling sideman Pete Roe on Mon 13th. Having welcomed countless stars of the folk and alt-country world through its doors over the years, there were worries about the future of live music at the Greys after it changed hands late last year, so we’re pleased to see quality bookings back underway.

Lux

The Green Door Store launch Lux this month, transforming the venue into a blank canvas that gives artists free reign to experiment. To accompany the aesthetic, Lux will be playing host to burgeoning electronic musicians and DJs spinning the

likes of Flying Lotus and Nosaj Thing. Aiming to support local talent in art, music and video, the free showcase launches on Thurs 9th then every second Thursday of the months following.

Emporium

Opening its doors in time for the Fringe, Emporium is a theatre space making use of the old Methodist Church on London Road. The building, across the street from Richer Sounds, has stood empty for several years until now. The Emporium’s mission statement includes ambitions to revive the traditions of regional repertory theatre and act as an industry hub. The venue is equipped with a bar and will also host exhibitions of props and scenery from theatre and the movies.

Shooshh

Up and running on the site of the old Honey Club, Shooshh is Brighton’s latest VIP-styled seafront clubbing destination. The weekends are all about dressing to impress, while Mondays are set aside for Shooshh’s student night Kiss. Meanwhile, in taxis across the city: “Where to, mate?” “Shoosh” “Suit yourself, mate, but if you don’t tell me we’ll never get there” etc.

D-P0RT

Brighton breaks duo Evil Nine headline the Komedia’s new night D-P0RT on Fri 31st. Evil Nine’s Tom Beaufoy and Pat Pardy have a decade of acclaimed releases on Marine Parade, Bad Life and their own For Lovers label to their credit, with their DJing skills acknowledged by releases for FabricLive and Distinctive’s Y4K series. D-P0RT’s night of ‘future electronic dance music’ takes place at Komedia on the last Friday of every month.

Treehouse Disco

Swing’s under-represented in the midweek club scene, and if you’ve been lamenting its absence, we bear good news. Launching at FunFair on Weds 8th, Treehouse Disco is bringing afrobeat, jazz rhythms, soul and disco to the dancefloor for a night that positively dares you not to boogie. It’s hosted by a plethora of well-practised local DJs with a selection of drinks deals if your dancing shoes need a little loosening.

oOoOO

Green Door Store Weds 1st

A performance on this side of the pond from San Francisco native oOoOO (pronounced simply “oh” apparently) is a rare and coveted thing. Drawing from a range of diverse musical influences, from Jana Hunter and Matteah Baim to Ludacris and Britney Spears, oOoOO’s experimental sound is one of a kind. A pioneer of the witch-house and drag genres, fans of Salem, White Ring and Balam Acab will be right at home amidst oOoOO’s sombre soundscapes that manage to simultaneously evoke reactions from limbs and tearducts alike. (LL)

FRESH PUNK 3

Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar Weds 1st

Seven bands for £4 is something you can’t really turn down in these austere times. And if you attended the last Fresh Punk event back in September, you’ll know this is worth getting down and getting loose for. Gruff Cornish crew Bangers headline, whose name should paint a clear enough picture of what their songs are like. Support comes from four Brighton bands in Fighting Fiction, Eager Teeth, Birdskulls and Wrecktheplacefantastic, along with Eastbourne’s ROAM and Norwich’s Ducking Punches. (CB)

Trapped Under Ice

Audio Weds 1st

After a brutal knockout set at Hevy fest last summer, Baltimore giants Trapped Under Ice will be bringing that same intensity to Brighton shores for the first time. Audio is a surprising choice of venue for a hardcore show, but this will still see plenty of people going absolutely nuts. Tour support in the shape of the growingly popular New York outfit Backtrack and UK vets Broken Teeth means that it’ll also be undoubtedly packed to the rafters. (JF)

SOURcE TIcKETS

Coalition Fri 3rd

Experimental rap noise duo Death Grips have had a meteoric rise fuelled by some ferocious free music, although their giveaway of last year’s cock-covered ‘No Love Deep Web’ got them dropped by their label. Consisting of MC Ride on vocals and Hella drummer Zach Hill on production, their live sets are reminiscent of an unholy fusion of Sex Pistols punk and Wu-Tang hip hop. The charismatic and perpetually topless MC Ride performs with a passion and energy that shows a love for his craft and makes it abundantly clear why critics and fans just can’t get enough of them. (LL)

Athlete

Haunt Sun 5th

Deptford indie rockers Athlete pioneered a chart rush of radio-friendly and soulless lo-fi, but we can’t blame them for their imitators. 2003’s Mercury Music Prize nominated ‘Vehicles And Animals’ is one of those sneaky albums that you know all of the words to, but don’t know why. They’ve released loads since then but that debut remains the pinnacle of their career, which they’ll be performing in full in this pre-tour warm-up show. (JMM)

Still Corners

Prince Albert Mon 6th

2013 thus far has seen music almost drown in a sea of female led dream-pop, however London duo Still Corners stand a cut above the rest. Signed to Sub Pop, their brand of ethereal, haunting 80s synthpop draws more than a few parallels to The Cranes and Cocteau Twins, with melodies reminiscent of The Cure or The Passions. Touring with their new album ‘Strange Pleasures’, this show will provide the perfect antidote to a hectic bank holiday weekend. (AT)

Haunt Thurs 9th

Sacramento six-piece Dance Gavin Dance come to the shores of Brighton on their debut UK tour, showing off their delicate and complex post-hardcore with a new line-up. After the troubled departure of former frontman Jonny Craig, their new tour sees them showing off new singer Tilian Pearson. And with an as yet untitled fifth studio album due this summer, the promise of new songs means this show will be unmissable for their patient British fans. (LH)

Asbo Derek

Hope Fri 10th

Following a triumphant set opening for punk originals Subway Sect last month, Brighton’s self-proclaimed ‘kazoo-driven double garage rockers’ are back as part of a well-rounded bill that also features awkward musical humourists I, Ludicrous and Fractured. Expect booze-fuelled, post-punk shenanigans with filthily hilarious songs about Tory politicians, Brigitte Bardot’s fading looks and the joys of crimping your hair. Fans of Half Man Half Biscuit should take note, as should anyone up for a good laugh and a jump around. (SC)

Parlour Flames Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar Sat 11th

Who’d have thought that when Oasis broke up we’d end up with triple the music? Bonehead (here with Vinny Peculiar) left Gallagher² when they were at the top of their game, so has a reputation to fight for. Parlour Flames’ sound predates the Manchester Britpop blueprint for a more tripped out, baggy set of songs that fall between Northside and The La’s, but Oasis fans will enjoy it, not least for a better view than Knebworth.

Unitarian Church Sat 11th

On first listen Daniel Woolhouse aka Deptford Goth could simply be described as a James Blake substitute, but further listens reveal more layers to his sound. The xx, and in particular Jamie xx’s remix work, are touchstones for tracks such as ‘Union’ and ‘People Get Still’, while vocally there is even a air of Bon Iver about him. The Unitarian Church is the perfect setting for his mix of haunting, soulful vocals and electronic beats, creating a perfect blend of old and new. (SE)

Junip

Haunt Sat 11th

When he’s not making people cry with tremblingly mournful covers of The Knife and Massive Attack, José González plays in Swedish indie folk band Junip. Their second, self-titled LP, was released at the end of April, and their original sound is rougher, rockier and more psychedelic than their frontman’s covers. González’ recognisable vocals and the band’s soaring guitar riffs and woozy echoes will still make your heart ache though, if that’s what you’re looking for. (JMM)

Wolf People

Blind Tiger Sun 12th

There are so many psych bands gigging at the moment that if we could lift ourselves from this smoky haze we’d wonder if we’ve travelled back to the 60s. Even so, Wolf People deserve a notable mention. Technically tight, stylishly right-on and unafraid of a panpipe sample, they released ‘Fain’ at the end of April, and it’s brilliant. Sleazy riffs strut over confident drums, overlaid with grandiose tales of looking through souls and seeing highwaymen. It’s weird and it works. (JMM)

Bass drum of death

Bass Drum Of Death Green Door Store Mon 13th

Fat Possum’s Bass Drum Of Death played their first ever UK show in Brighton almost two years ago at the Green Door Store’s Aereo, and now the duo return with their scuzzed out garage assault on a Monday - frankly the least rock’n’roll night of the week. No matter, these dudes are adaptable - they’ve played with members of Odd Future in a rock/rap crossover that actually worked in the past, although whether or not such deviations from their primal sonic assault will occur tonight is unsure.

The Big Reunion Brighton Centre Mon 13th

Somehow, guilty pleasure bands from the 90s and 00s have become more interesting than today’s pop offerings. ITV2 reality show The Big Reunion has been a surprise hit with viewers, despite the initial hilarity of 5ive returning as a quartet. If you, like many others, secretly enjoyed seeing Liberty X and Honeyz trying to get to grips with their old dance routines, you may as well see the finished products live. You can try and hide your love for the likes of B*witched, 911 and Atomic Kitten but you’ll only be lying to yourself. (AJM)

Three albums in, and San Diego’s mariachi/post hardcore outfit Pierce The Veil are surrounded by a hype that’s bigger than ever.

Although the pop muppets are taking a trip down memory lane to revisit the last decade, they’re not planning on stopping anytime soon as they work on their sixth studio album. Despite their second incomes as reality TV contestants and children’s authors (sadly The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas narrowly missed this month’s Six Of The Best feature), making new music remains at the forefront of their careers.

It is difficult to find other artists who do what Public Service Broadcasting duo J Willgoose and Wrigglesworth do. The clue is in their name as they splice in samples of public information broadcasts into various electronic styles. Post-punk guitars sit alongside synths and electro beats with the only vocals coming from samples they have lifted from sources like the BFI archives, such as the 1953 documentary that features at the core of single ‘Everest’.

Chris Wood’s multiple wins at the Radio 2 Folk Awards in recent years came after a long apprenticeship on the English scene. Wood was a very early member of Kent’s Oysterband at the dawn of the 80s, and since then has collaborated with musicians from English family royalty Martin and Eliza Carthy to everyone’s favourite nonfolk folksinger Billy Bragg. Multi-instrumentalist Wood combines a deep knowledge of these isles’ traditional music with subject matter ranging from Darwin to the death of Jean Charles de Menezes. (SH)

Delivering their own pared down, atmospheric version of r’n’b and electronica, Vondelpark arrive at the Green Door Store with the release of debut album ‘Seabed’. Inviting comparisons to James Blake, Sade and The xx, the Surrey trio make haunting melodies layered with hypnotic beats, misty guitars and, as they put it, ‘radiohead quietstorm’. Drawing on influences such as Barry White and Herbie Hancock via My Bloody Valentine, it’s a whole new dreamscape. Vonderful. (AT)

Anushka

Bleeding edge dance music meets bleeding heart neo-soul Photo By Kenny Mc Cracken at Create Studios Assisted by Kristina Sälgvik

Words By James Kendall

Thanks to bands like The Maccabees, British Sea Power and Bat For Lashes, Brighton has long been known as an indie city. And with Kins, Tall Ships, The Physics House Band and many more representing us at The Great Escape this year, we’re still holding our own with acts that have drummers. But actually there’s an underground scene of electronic music that is getting more props internationally that you might realise. Driven by the influence of Donga’s house-revitalising Well Rounded imprint – alongside the continuing work of Blah Blah Blah, supporting and releasing cutting edge nu-electronica – Brighton is crawling with artists doing very well in the sets of the world’s best DJs. Dauwd just dropped a neo-Detroit style release on Ghostly International, Lorca’s new garage-flavoured EP on 2020 Vision, ‘If I Told You’, is getting props all over, while Leon Vynehall’s skippy 90s style house tore up Boiler Room at the end of last year. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Page 16

Anushka are the perfect example of the scene in that they’re completely different from their contemporaries, while slotting into the bass sound that Brighton is nailing right now. Where Anushka stand apart is in their soul and jazz influences. Debut single ‘Yes Guess’ is deliciously moody and late night, with cool keys and stuttered Theo Parrish beats, but comes topped with a breathy vocal from Victoria that could stand up against the best that soul music has to offer. Yet with enough volume the drops absolutely explode. It’s quite a package. Elsewhere across the EP, ‘I Have Love 4 You’ has a feel of one of MJ Cole’s productions with Elizabeth Troy – full of melody, euphoric vocals and grown up garage beats. It’s the sort of jazz and soul–tipped track that would have been totally at home on Talkin’ Loud, so it makes sense that Gilles Peterson, the former boss of that imprint, snapped up Anushka for his

hip hop to house and techno is a jump rarely made, but like lots of producers breathing life into sounds from the 90s, Max started his journey by exploring dubstep and grime, although for slightly unconventional reasons. “I’ve taught music a lot in Brighton, often working with young offenders,” Max explains. “A lot of that has taken me through grime, dubstep, those types of music. When I was doing the same in the north of England, it was hard house that the kids wanted to make. All of those sounds are a bit darker, bleaker and at different tempos. So I was looking at all of that, and having an experimental period of producing different stuff to see what interested me.” He’d tried working with vocalists before but nothing had really gelled until Victoria came along. The first set of instrumentals he gave her to write vocals to contained soulful tracks and one that was pretty dark. Expecting her to avoid the moody track, Max knew things were going to work when she came back with a song over the shadowy beats. “I think the thing that we had in common straight away is that we both liked going out raving,” Max says. “When we met we were going to a lot of the Well Rounded parties at the Tube, and Below The Line. It was when that whole bass music thing wasn’t cool, before techno and house really came back. There was a lot of different stuff being played, and we both enjoyed being out, listening to sound systems.” Those nights have clearly become a huge part of Anushka’s sound, alongside The Producer’s Retreat at The Caxton Arms, where the pair, and other local electronic music makers, tested their new studio work. “There’s definitely a network of people making good music in Brighton,” confirms Max. “It’s not like our sound has just come from nowhere, it’s definitely been influenced by all the people around us.” “People in Brighton really engage with each other’s projects in comparison to anywhere else,” adds Victoria.

The reason it’s like that is that he constantly wants to innovate. He obviously loves songs, and he loves the soulful sound present in our music, but I think he also wants something that’s gonna surprise him with a little bit of edge to it.” While they sound like they popped into Gilles’ world fully formed, the reason that Anushka have such an interesting take on bass is that they’ve come to the genre from rather interesting directions. Victoria studied at BIMM and sang in jazz bands and on drum’n’bass and dubstep sessions, while Max was in Tru Thoughts’ hip hop outfit Dirty Diggers. From

Unlike Victoria’s previous experiences singing sessions for dance music producers, working with Max was a two way street straight away. “I personally wanted to be involved from the get-go in all kinds of aspects of making the records,” Victoria says. “Not just writing songs and recording, but also sitting in on little production sessions, just to make sure it’s a 50/50 input. It’s the way we want it to sound, rather than just how the one person wants it to sound.” This month they’re not only basking in the success of their debut single and a Boiler Room set, but also readying themselves for the debut performance at The Great Escape, not least for Victoria, who worked it as a BIMM student a couple of years ago. “For my first year in Brighton it was part of my work experience,” she recalls, “running around at the Great Escape. I love it, I think it’s a great festival, and I’m really excited to finally get to play.” “We’re really excited about doing a gig in Brighton,” confirms Max. “Our label and our management are all in London and we’ve done a lot of shows there. It’s nice to be coming back to Brighton and showing some of the music we’ve been working on.” We get the impression that Anushka are going to continue to be pulled out of Brighton, both as a live act and in the record bags of every DJ of note.

Concorde 2 Sun 5th

Easter’s long gone, but don’t worry: Be Nothing are offering up a new holy trinity of Britney, inflatables and Jägerbombs for their second birthday party at the Green Door Store. To help them celebrate two years of inspired bookings and wild parties are live bands Shudder Pulps, Girl Band and Tourist, and the early hours DJs include local trip hop producer Adolescent. Be Nothing know how to party hard. (JMM)

Although best known for being a founding member of trip hopdefining Massive Attack, Grant Marshall started out as a DJ. Before being catapulted into the international spotlight with Massive’s ‘Blue Lines’, he found fame in Bristol for being one of the youngest yet most talented DJs working the circuit. Expect a truly passionate showcase of the historic Bristol sound as Marshall revisits his roots, with support coming from regular Portishead DJ Andy Smith. (LL)

Floating Points

Ghosting Season

It’s only the third event by new club night in town Forekast, but it’s another stellar booking. Classically trained pianist, full time neuroscientist, jazz fan and all-round club smasher Floating Points is this month’s headliner, and in support is Hannah Wants, a self-taught house producer who seems to be everywhere this year. The fun doesn’t end in the main room, with Dominion, Luka T and Harbinger playing elsewhere. The forecast’s looking up. (JMM)

Offering an eerie mix of moody synths, blips and sub-bass bumps, Ghosting Season paint an ambient landscape for Dive Slow’s live night. Supported by Pandr Eyez, a soulful electronic duo that sound like SBTRKT’s edgy little sister, deck-spinning from resident DJ Mike Diver and Metronomy’s very own Olugbenga, it’s starting to look like one of those ‘had-to-bethere’ nights. There’ll be hip hop, electro and lots of Jack Daniels. Oh, and entry is free. If that doesn’t sway you, nothing will. (TLB)

Thomas Gandey

Smack Sat 4th

After the recent release of ‘Cube EP Volume 1’ this March, Thomas Gandey – also known as Caged Baby – will be pumping Smack’s J’Box night with tech-house and minimal beats until the early hours. From producing tracks for the likes of Fatboy Slim and David Byrne, to touring with The Chemical Brothers and Underworld, Gandey has a wealth of tracks and history to pull into his set. We’re hoping he drops his collaboration with Maxxi Soundsystem, the deep and sultry ‘Shake Your Head’. (TLB)

A master hip hop turntablist who integrates a sense of humour and wacky visuals into his sets, Yoda is truly unmatched in this terrain. Globally renowned for his unique tongue-in-cheek style, he has an uncanny ability to transform any room of laidback people into a bopping bunch of happy ravers with a silly grin plastered on every face. Named by Q magazine as one of ten DJs to see before you die, if without plans on this Thursday you are, see him you must. (LL)

Critical Sound

Life Fri 17th

Critical king Kasra and prodigal son Enei top the bill for the latest of the imprint’s successful club nights, with a little help from Mefjus, an Austrian with a techy, accomplished drum’n’bass sound. Also helping to keep Life’s massive glitter ball vibrating at about 170 bpm are ST, Lofty and Shiver, and hosts Bassline, Visionobi and Influx. Kung Fu are running room two downstairs, if you need a little hip hop breather. (JMM)

Edible

Audio Fri 17th

Following a year of trailblazing success, Bristol-based house producer Eats Everything brings Edible to Audio. Hopefully the first of many, the delicious four-day tour is Eats’ way of showing off his eclectic influences by gigging with them. Serving Brighton with special guests Richy Ahmed and Blond:ish, Edible promises mouth-watering beats and basslines. And if you buy your tickets now - from Eats Everything’s website - you’ll get a free USB stick with tracks from the man himself. Sounds tasty. (TLB)

Dimensions Launch

Life Fri 24th

AkaAkaRoar’s heading to the shores of Croatia again at the end of the summer, and this is the official Brighton Dimensions Festival launch party. They’ll be hosting a boat party and a stage out there, and as a warm-up have invited dual headliners Levon Vincent and Locked Groove to Life to give us a taster of what to expect. Dominion and Markings are the main support, and Below The Line will be hosting room two. (JMM)

Superfreq

Concorde 2 Fri 24th

Two UK dance heroes for the price of one tonight, as Mr C’s Superfreq club comes to town with special guest A Guy Called Gerald. Everyone knows Mr C from his star turn rapping for The Shamen, but he maintained his credibility running The End club while producing underground tracks for a multitude of labels. With rave classic ‘Voodoo Ray’ and definitive d’n’b album ‘Black Secret Technology’ to his name, you’ll surely need no convincing to see prolific Manc musician A Guy Called Gerald too. (SH)

Disclosure

Return Of The Twat

Squeaky clean house brothers Guy and Howard Laurence, better known as Disclosure, are helping Blah Blah Blah celebrate their sixth birthday at Digital this month with a DJ set that’s bound to be full of their vibrant remixes. The enigmatic and suddenly prolific Friend Within is supporting and demonstrating why Dirtybird and Hypercolour have snapped up his tracks so quickly. Blah Blah Blah DJs will be in residence to keep the party going all night. (JMM)

It’s the Brighton show of this delightfully named tour, a celebration of UK hip hop put on by High Focus Records and Boom Bap. The genre gets a bad rep for all the bitches and bling stereotypes, but these guys are far too clever to take all that seriously. If you want a flavour of what to expect, look up comically filthy headliner Dirty Dike’s single ‘Hi I’m James’. Klashnekoff, Fliptrix, Verb T are amongst the other acts playing. (JMM)

Huxley

club previews Audio Sat 25th

Huxley initially found success as an underground garage producer but his trademark sound has mutated and evolved into a deeper, house led style. Having had an enviable myriad of releases on high profile labels, the Tring native has established himself as an effortless forerunner in whatever genre he puts his hand to. With critics and fans alike lauding over every release, Huxley’s appearance at Audio’s flagship night is definitely not one to miss. (LL)

Happy Mondays Afterparty Life Sun 26th

Is New Order’s Peter Hook – who takes to the decks tonight – a better bassist than Duran Duran’s John Taylor? We could argue all night (and also they’re both pretty good DJs). Of course, Hooky got busted playing pre-mixed CDs but we’ve seen him DJ to a 1000 plus capacity club and hold the floor with a mix of big tunes and old favourites. And, damn, he used to own the Haçienda. After being fired up with a load of rave and baggy classics by 808 State and the Happy Mondays at the Brighton Centre tonight, he’ll probably carry on the nostalgia. (JK)

Top Buzz & Mad P

Volks Fri 31st

Another month, another Originate party at the Volks, with more DJs, producers and MCs than we can list in eighty words. This one’s headed up by rave royalty Top Buzz, featuring MC Mad P, and is set to be another eight-hour non-stop party session. If you like jungle, acid, hardcore or mad dancing, you’ll have a ball. The night is doubling up as local DJ Kosine’s 30th birthday bash too, so expect the party to be fittingly wild. (JMM)

JAZZNOTE

TOP 10

Words by Jessica Marshall McHattie Photos by Mike & Edward at Studio85

There aren’t many club nights in Brighton that focus on liquid drum’n’bass, and that’s because they couldn’t compete with Jazznote. It’s a constantly evolving club night with a loyal fan base, and has skipped through various venues to its current home at 10 Below, where there’s a free event every Thursday. The bookings are a heady mix of big names, fresh collaborations and exciting newcomers, with Cyantific, Ivy Lab and Hybrid Minds playing recent nights. There’s always representation from Brighton talent too, including residents Shiver, S.T., Badger and Lofty, which makes for packed, energetic dance floors.

Although Jazznote is dedicated to liquid drum’n’bass, it’s not elitist about genres: on the night we visited, there was hip hop by Kung Fu in room two and the Well Rounded Vinyl Vendors playing house, garage and anything else they fancied in the bar. This exemplifies one of the friendliest, most up-for-it club nights in Brighton. Take note.

Comedy: Laughter Market

Art: Jeff Koons

This month’s Old Market comedy showcase is headlined by German skiing sensation Flange Krammer, a brash ladies’ man never short of an off piste gag. Laughing at wonky German stereotypes doesn’t ever seem likely to go out of fashion here in the UK, we’ve been doing it at least since Mad King George was on the throne, and although Krammer isn’t as subtle a creation as actual German Henning Wehn, his bolshy, broad-brush parody carries it off. (SH)

Jeff Koons started out casting huge, flamboyant animals and tulips, but swiftly took a sordid turn for the saucy by casting himself shagging his Italian pornstar lover in a series of rude works, until she left him. Art critics, unsurprisingly, have frequently dismissed Koons as a bawdy old attention junkie, little dispelled by a vast gold version of Michael Jackson and Bubbles and the alcohol-devoted Luxury & Degradation series. Smutty, silly, kitsch, depraved, lowbrow. Blushing makes you live longer. (BM)

Old Market Thurs 2nd

Spoken Word: Speaky Spokey Latest MusicBar Thurs 2nd

Regular Latest MusicBar host David Bramwell swaps his presenting role for performing tonight with a set from Oddfellow’s Casino, whose sinister third album ‘The Raven’s Empire’ was a SOURCE favourite last year. Spoken word contributions at the Latest Bar’s regular salon include the launch of Mark Peterson’s thriller A Place Of Blood And Stone; Salena Godden reading from her forthcoming Sussex childhood memoir Springfield Road; Booker shortlisted author Mick Jackson; novelist Gabriel Gbadamosi and poet Hannah Lowe. (SH)

Comedy: Micky Flanagan Back In The Game Brighton Centre Thurs 9th - Sun 12th

Some still contend that modern comedy is a young person’s game, but the rise of Micky Flanagan – a feller old enough to be Jack Whitehall’s dad – to the top rank of British comedians gives lie to this view. Flanagan’s appeal is his unforced everyman demeanour, an open-hearted view of the world grounded in his East End upbringing. You feel he’s the sort as happy to reel off anecdotes one on one in a bar as in front of an arena crowd. Top stuff. (SH)

Event: Eurovision Song Contest Party Duke’s At Komedia Sat 18th

Ever since ABBA’s ‘Waterloo’ won the Eurovision Song Contest – a pivotal moment in pop history which, we’ll never tire of pointing out, happened right here in Brighton – the musical cheesefest has become synonymous with Swedes binging and bonging their way to the top. Thanks to Loreen’s irresistible 2012 winner ‘Euphoria’, Eurovision is back in Sweden again for the fifth time. We’ll be pretending Brighton twinned with our Scandinavian friends back in ’74 at the Duke’s always popular glitter and satin screening. (SH)

Film: Made Of Stone

Duke Of York’s & Duke’s At Komedia Thurs 30th

Charting the resurrection of everyone’s favourite leatherfaced cherubs The Stone Roses last year, Shane Meadows casts his eye over fields full of pot-bellied casuals euphoric at being given the chance to write off half their mortgages as part of an ecstatic exercise in undiluted altruism. This is one of those nifty satellite screenings, so the male Voice Of An Angel and his bandmates will be watching on from Manchester while Meadows and producer Mark Herbert answer any post-show queries.

Sperry and Mike King. Not only was it one of the best things we’ve ever seen at the Fringe, it also proved to be hugely influential, not least from the workshops taught by Sperry and King. Since then we’ve had a further exhibition from BRAG, who met at Sperry’s workshop, and now Brighton’s commitment to the art form continues with The Stick Up, a new annual exhibition that’s part of The Great Escape. Having sent invitations to the best European print studios, The Stick Up say they’ve had a wide variety of work back, “some slick, some crass and irreverent, others are soft and cute”. Rather than a single exhibition, there will be a trail across the city, starting at Super+Super, which will become The Stick Up Shop for the duration of the trail.

locally sourced Words By Stuart Huggett, Teoh Lander-Boyce, Liam Lawrence, Jessica Marshall McHattie

hot 8 brass band

Album: The Growlers ‘Hung At Heart’ (FatCat)

Known on Newport Beach in California for their lavish parties and love of surfing, The Growlers’ West Coast roots shine through on ‘Hung At Heart’. Dreamy, breezy tones hit from start to finish, teased by muffled distortion and moody echoed vocals akin to The Strokes or someone singing with a blocked nose. In places you may feel like you’re trapped inside a fairground haunted house but overall it’s pleasant, evoking nostalgia for 60s B-movies, spaghetti westerns and ‘spooky’ horror flicks. (TLB)

EP: Heavy Dancers ‘Paradise Bungalows’ (Tattle Tapes)

Self-declared ‘unpop’ group Heavy Dancers are obliterating the indie band cookie cutter. With an instrument collection that includes a melodica, a saxophone and a Korg Monotron, it’s to be expected that their sound would be richer and quirkier than their contemporaries, but this EP surpasses any expectations. It’s suave stuff, with Britpop vocals and sashaying, rollicking rhythms under upbeat melodies, while title track ‘Paradise Bungalows’ is the kind of song that’ll stay in your head for days. (JMM)

LP: Hot 8 Brass Band ‘Tombstone’ (Tru Thoughts)

A modern take on the historic New Orleans second line sound, Hot 8 Brass Band have overcome many tragic hardships, from the death of former members to the devastation Hurricane Katrina wrought when she passed through their city. Such tragedy seems have had a profound effect on their music, as the pure joyful celebration of life that comes through is staggering. Single ‘Milwaukee Fat’ is typical of the whole album, a rambunctious party track with infectiously energetic instrumentals and the occasional lyrical outburst. (LL)

EP: JetPack Elastic

‘Not So Black And White’ (jetpackelastic.bandcamp.com)

Prolific Brighton rock band Jetpack Elastic have been gigging for years, and have built up plenty of experiences and material for their first EP, ‘Not So Black And White’. For a debut, it’s surprisingly accomplished. Vocalist Lucy Holland brings a

Page 32

timelessness to the songs, expressing languid distaste and utter power with equal credibility. ‘Right Side Of The Bed’ typifies Jetpack Elastic’s sound; it’s sultry, energetic and rammed with stylistic flourishes. These people were born to make music. (JMM)

Single: Le Juki

‘Forest Of Stick Insects’ (Beatabet)

With an effortless blend of musical styles that combines soulful lyrics from Kassia Zermon (aka vocal-looping diva Bunty) with classical strings and an almost hip hop percussion, Le Juki have achieved something special with their debut single ‘Forest Of Stick Insects’. It’s coupled with ‘Underwater Gardens’, a summery contrast to the A-side’s lost-in-thewoods sound, its afrobeat inspired harmonies finding a melodic partnership with ethereal aquatic vibes. This little taster should leave listeners eagerly awaiting Le Juki’s forthcoming album. (LL)

EP: Platypi

‘Something Tangible’ (Numerology)

The first release on new label Numerology Records comes from Platypi, a producer who’s been crafting chillout tunes as a sideline to being an integral part of Brighton band Almighty Planets. His debut EP is influenced by the likes of Onra and Bonobo, with soft electronica floating above slightly offbeat hip hop rhythms. The standout track from this release is ‘Lassitude’, which weaves snippets of vocal samples over a tense backdrop, creating a sound that’s beautifully addictive. (JMM)

Album: Carry On Rioting / Late night lingerie

Two cut-price DIY compilations from out of the underground. The first CD offering from Sticky Mike’s Late Night Lingerie club unites a dozen feral rock’n’rollers, with standout tracks by Monocure, The Flash Gordons and YRRS, in a typically upfront nudie sleeve. It’s all very male, and politically at odds with Riots Not Diets’ latest green vinyl set ‘Carry On Rioting’, where bright, garagey contributions and casual covers from Shrag, Summer Hunter and ex-Help She Can’t Swim outfit Daskinsey 4 rub shoulders with the international riot grrrl/queercore scene. Poles apart, but strong sets nonetheless. (SH)

crystal fighters

Alarm Bells

Bo Bruce

Bipolar Sunshine

Mikal Cronin

Despite having only released one track, Bipolar Sunshine’s soulful yet indie vocals are enough to promise big things for this act. This is the solo project from Adio Marchant, member of disbanded Mancunian hip hop band Kid British, and his sound is far softer than you’d imagine. ‘Fire’ is a breezy ambient track that revels in simplicity, never boiling up into over-dramatic builds. Put simply, it’s very pretty and has left us eager for more. so we won’t be missing out on this opportunity. (TLB)

American singer-songwriter Mikal Cronin and his band create the kind of psychedelic wall-of-sound racket that the Pixies might have given birth to had they stepped into a time machine and engaged in a spot of 60s free loving with The Byrds. Grungy fuzz-laden guitars chug away underneath dreamy, melodic vocals, the perfect embodiment of sundrenched Californian garage rock. If you can excuse the forgettable name, this should prove one of the dark horse performances of this year’s Great Escape. (NJF)

The Blackout

Crystal Fighters

Rising from the ashes of Glaswegian post-hardcore band Dananananaykroyd come Alarm Bells, with a sound akin to their fun-loving predecessor. More experimental than before, expect pensive soundscapes, bubbling guitar riffs, muffled distortion, intense drum breaks and Billy Talent-esque screams (but with a Scottish twang, of course). If members of Enter Shikari and Klaxons ever decided to start a band together, we’d suspect it’d sound something like this. As if that would ever happen. Like Test Icicles but friendlier. (TLB)

Despite having formed almost 10 years ago, The Blackout find themselves at a new music festival. With four albums behind them, they’re more established than most on the bill, although considering that Billy Bragg is headlining this year’s event maybe their inclusion doesn’t seem so odd. They’ll be appearing at Rock Sound magazine’s stage at the Concorde 2, which means that fans of Welsh post-hardcore can purchase a standalone ticket without buying a wristband, while festival attendees get in for free. (AJM)

Page 34

After failing to find fame on Channel 4’s Orange unsignedAct several years ago, singer-songwriter Bo Bruce braved the glare of reality TV again during the first series of The Voice. Although the show’s champion Leanne Mitchell is releasing her debut album this month, the focus is likely to remain on this popular runner-up. Bruce’s voice may not have gained the most votes but it won the most hearts. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy the beautiful music of the true winner. (AJM)

With a new album ‘Cave Rave’ set for release this month, Crystal Fighters are ready to remind us why they’re considered one of Britain’s most exciting dance live acts. Through their use of traditional Basque instruments, they merge world rhythms with pulsing synth basslines and floaty, delicate vocals. The band are also known for putting on fast-paced, mesmerising shows. New tracks ‘Wave’ and ‘Separator’ are fun, tribal and dreamy songs that make their album and these upcoming shows look very promising. (TLB)

King Krule

Drop Out Venus

The Midnight Beast

Chlöe Howl

Moxie

Having been around since the early days of dubstep’s rise in popularity (years before Skrillex’s bastardisation of a whole genre) Darkstar have had considerable experience in both dubstep and grime. After releasing the critically acclaimed ‘North’ on Kode9’s label Hyperdub they exiled themselves to West Yorkshire, away from the distractions of London, for the sequel. This has resulted in ‘Timeaway’, a perfect example of the drastic evolution of their sound over the years. (LL)

Mac DeMarco’s name is slowly beginning to emerge from the muso grapevine and on to the international festival scene. So why is it that a twenty-something adult who dresses like a 13-year-old boy should have this level of street cred? Take one listen to his self-proclaimed ‘jizz-jazz’ and you’ll understand. Twinkly Marr-esque guitars chime relentlessly around lamenting vocals, resulting in ludicrously catchy pop hooks. Oh, and he’s been known to take his kit off during live shows too. (NJF)

Moody, creepy and a little demented, Drop Out Venus are a self-proclaimed ‘junk jazz’ three-piece from Deptford who’ve captured the essence of apathy in their sound. There is something about their sultry female vocals and intentionally messy, jarring and, in places, anti-melodic sound, that speaks to everyone’s inner weirdo. We can’t promise they won’t jump out at you from the stage considering the themes in their lyrics, but whatever they’re like live it’s bound to be intriguing. (TLB)

Every year, The Great Escape sees intimate performances from future superstars. Chlöe Howl looks set to join that elite class. Although every artist booked to play the festival is tipped for success in some form, Howl is likely to be one of this year’s over-achievers. Her free ‘Rumour’ EP was released on her 18th birthday and has already notched up an impressive amount of acclaim. She may be a sweary, frank talking teenager but she’s one with enviable musical ability. (AJM)

Slamming trudging guitars, indie dance drums and howling punk vocals together, Dublin-based duo Kit Karate have created a gritty, raw yet fun sound that can keep any room moving. Death From Above 1979 heavily influence their simple approach, yet the rocked-up aura of Queen Of The Stone Ages is still present. If you can imagine what The White Stripes would sound like if they had a better drummer and James Murphy helping them out, then you’ll probably love these boys. (TLB)

With a five-panel cap balanced on a shock of ginger hair and the face of an innocent schoolboy, King Krule’s Archy Marshall has the look of a street-wise Tintin. That’s where the similarities end, however, as Krule performs his deep and irrevocably bleak lyrics in a mournful baritone. Formerly known as Zoo Kid, his popularity has grown steadily since the release of debut single ‘Out Getting Ribs’, with the likes of NME and the New York Times hailing his talents. (LL)

In relation to gigs, the term ‘all ages’ has become interchangeable with 14+ limits. However, The Great Escape knows that pre-pubescent boys and girls like music too. The Midnight Beast’s performance is open to ticket holders as young as 10, but that doesn’t mean this show will be family friendly. Expect to see embarrassed parents wondering whether their children should be listening to ‘Censorshit’ and ‘Strategy Wanking’. Grown-up wristband wearers who still enjoy toilet humour can join the fun too. (AJM)

With a fortnightly show on NTS and regular appearances on Rinse and Kiss FM, Alice Moxom’s a familiar on-air presence. Her reputation as a DJ, broadcaster and party-starter has seen her play at some of the best clubs around the world, and she’s a firm fan of the eclectic, mixing everything from grime to disco in a tight, dancefloor-centred style. Her record box is always filled with a blend of classics and the cutting edge. (JMM)

SWEET BABOO

David ‘Ram Jam’ Rodigan

A god among men for any reggae fans in Britain, Rodigan has been honing his skills since he was 15 and was captivated by a Millie Small performance of ‘My Boy Lollipop’. Now 61 and recently knighted for his services to broadcasting, his undying passion and encyclopaedic knowledge of the genre has never faltered. You’re sure to find red-eyed, dreadlocked veterans bopping to Rodigan’s bass-heavy vibes, with an all too familiar aroma clinging to their clothes and seeping out their pores. (LL)

Sweet Baboo

Quintessential Welshman Sweet Baboo is a folky, psychedelic musician with a captivating stage presence. Having honed his skills on the festival circuit, he released his debut album ‘Ships’ in March and this is one of his first shows to promote it. The album is full of catchy pop hooks, but presented in a heartfelt, country-tinged manner, making for a sound that’s polished but maintains its touching, genuine truthfulness. (JMM)

Title Fight

Grungy punk rock band Title Fight have been causing quite a stir ever since they released ‘Shed’ in 2011, instantly becoming one of the biggest names on the scene. Borrowing elements of 90s emo, contemporary pop-punk and post-hardcore, the’ve created a distinctive sound that very few can hold a candle to. A whole wave of young bands both sides of the Atlantic often cite the Pennsylvania group as a key influence, with good reason. (CB)

Trevino

Drum’n’bass demigod Marcus Intalex’s house and techno alias Trevino is now almost as appreciated as his original guise. Inspired by the original sounds of Detroit and

Page 36

Chicago, Trevino’s mixes also feature the newer mutations found in the clubs of Berlin and varied, split-up beats sourced during his years of touring the world. As you’d expect, his DJ sets are equally as diverse and perfectly balance the classics with vinyl so fresh it’s still hot. (JMM)

Andreya Triana

Following collaborations with artists such as Flying Lotus, Mr Scruff and Bonobo, Andreya Triana’s popularity has continued to soar. With a voice reminiscent of Corinne Bailey Rae, but with a dreamy, transient quality, it’s easy to see why. Having realized her passion for music from a very young age she honed her undeniable talent through hours spent locked in her bedroom writing poetry and recording tracks. These experiences now culminate in her hypnotic ‘Freeflo Sessions’, a one-woman show incorporating looping vocals and percussive beats to produce a truly memorable experience. (LL)

Tribes

London’s achingly cool Tribes quickly gained a cult following after debut single ‘We Were Children’ won Zane Lowe’s ‘hottest record in the world’ award, cemented by a live appearance on top of a shop in their native Camden. With a sound that harks back to the era of the Pixies, they’ve just finished recording their second studio album ‘Wish To Scream’ in LA. Expect nothing less than great things from them when they take the stage in Brighton. (LL)

The Wytches

The first thing that jumps out at us when we listen to Brighton trio Wytches is how on edge the vocals sound. A crackling voice flickering between monotone Gallagher-esque whines and an evil Liza Minnelli cackle, one minute he’s breaking down, the next he’s laughing in your face. Paired with dark riffs and psychedelic guitar twangs, this paints a sound reminiscent of a gritty gangster wasteland film. It’ll be like Reservoir Dogs on Halloween… or something like that. (TLB)

Alternative Escape Great TGE Events You Don’t Need A Wristband For Words by Stuart Huggett, Jessica Marshall McHattie

1066 Invasion

Hope Weds 15th

Although Hastings is often maligned as Brighton’s poorer cousin, the two resorts have a lot in common, including a vibrant music scene and the fact that no-one’s been banged up for torching their piers. Tonight’s gig finds Brighton promoters Never Been Kissed and the town’s Pierless Music site showcase a raft of 1066 region bands, with a headline slot for heavy Britpop tunesmiths Plasticine (as seen at One Inch Badge’s Sea Monsters festival earlier in the year). (SH)

London In Stereo & Fear Of Fiction Latest MusicBar Thurs 16th

One of the big advantages of the Alternative Escape strand is that non-TGE wristbanded kids can get a taste of some of the main festival’s hotly tipped acts. This evening’s gig is one such show, with a headline slot from London’s noisy pop kids Wolf Alice, very much at the 90s influenced, Elastica-esque end of things, with an indie celebrity coupling involved to boot. Also hopping across from the Great Escape bill are Brighton’s own indiepop hopefuls Fear Of Men. (SH)

Make Noise

Life Thurs 16th

At the end of 2012, long-time friends and tour buddies Machinedrum and Jimmy Edgar decided to release an EP under the collaborative alias Jets. The resultant four-track ‘Meu’ proved what a brilliant idea that was. Their 60 minute mix for Boiler Room just raises the anticipation of the duo’s set for Make Noise tonight. Jets’ sound is a laid-back, sleazy beast, easing into r’n’b and boogie with equal smoothness, all topped off with slick samples and footwork rhythms. (JMM)

Noisescape

Bartholomew Square Thurs 16th

Taking over the square outside Moshimo, Noisescape is an all-dayer that finds some of Brighton’s best home-grown bands sounding off against the pillars of the Town Hall. Monsters Build Mean Robots bring the post rock heaviness,

Page 38

Wolf Alice

there’s blues-soaked post-punk from Black Black Hills, the synthetic motorik brilliance of AK/DK, Dark Horses’ sinister electronic rock, math trio Cat Fire Radio, mysterious soundtrack makers Nordic Giants and maybe some surprise guests. A lot more fun than querying your council tax bill at any rate. (SH)

Two Sisters

Fitzherberts Thurs 16th

Brighton rockers Demob Happy found themselves splashed across the local papers last month when enthusiastic fans at a house party gig caused the floor to give way. The Argus reported that residents in the block had been made temporarily homeless following the exuberant student bash. Hopefully Fitzherberts is more solidly built for when the band bring their melodic grunge to Two Sisters Records’ showcase. (SH)

Alcopop! Vs Big Scary Monsters Pavilion Tavern Fri 17th

The Pav Tav hosts another massive showcase at this year’s Alternative Escape, with around 20 noisy tykes signed up. Getting underway at 1pm and continuing right through until the following morning, it’s an endurance test for even the most energy drink-fuelled teen troublemaker. Brighton hardcore crew Gnarwolves make an evening appearance, Fight Like Apes and Johnny Foreigner grab the peak late night slots, with Her Parents and Oxygen Thief finishing off the stragglers as sunrise threatens. Tough stuff. (SH)

Under The Influence Fitzherberts Sat 18th

Antifolk starlets The Bobby McGee’s keep notching up successes in unexpected areas – from Jimmy’s besting of Anne Robinson on The Weakest Link to Eleanor’s expanding vintage dress empire in her Dig For Victory shop. The band are releasing a download single every month in the run up to October’s ‘Bon Bon’ album, a wickedly funny set that broadens on their ‘indy-pop lindy-hop’ sound. This weekend’s slot is at Under The Influence’s Billy Bragg tribute night. Get yer ukes out. (SH)

ART: Mariele Neudecker Regency Town House Sat 4th – Sun 26th

Mariele Neudecker is an extraordinary artist, known for her eerily imposing sculptures in works shown at Tate and beyond. Typically ambitious, her Heterotopias & Other Domestic Landscapes installation enters deep sea space in the basement, rising through iceberg pictures on the ground floor to pictures of the sun on the upper level. She’s got an equally striking exhibition, The Air Itself Is One Vast Library, in an accompaniment to James Bridle’s show at Lighthouse (see below). (BM)

ART: James Bridle: Under The Shadow Of The Drone Lighthouse Sat 4th – Sun 26th

James Bridle is the man who compiled a 12-volume account of all the changes made to the Wikipedia entry for little-known skirmish the Iraq War. Outdoor work Under The Shadow Of The Drone is somewhat more exciting but no less doom-laden than that. Based on a replica of a military aircraft, Bridle is mapping out recreations of the drones which allow remote aerial attacks, bleakly and starkly portraying the technologies of war and the ways they distance politicians and buttonpushers from those they most affect. (BM)

Art: Audible Forces Western Lawns Sat 4th – Mon 6th

An installation of wind-powered musical creations, Audible Forces places itself in a lineage stretching back to ancient world instruments like the Aeolian harp. The assemblage, premiering at the festival, features the work of six contemporary artists in association with Max Eastley, whose extensive work in the fields of experimental sound first came to notice under the patronage of Brian Eno’s record label Obscure. It’s free to experience, of course, just down on the beach near Sackville Gardens. (SH)

Music: Beardyman - One Album Per Hour Corn Exchange Sat 4th

Battlejam beatboxer Beardyman is widely admired here in Brighton and around the world for his lightning fast talents. One Album Per Hour is the hometown debut of his musical comedy improv show, testing his powers of instrumental mimicry and imaginative freestyling to the limits. The audience throw out titles, subjects and genres, challenging Beardyman to invent an album of new songs from scratch. Sounds like a brain scrambling task, but we know he’s got the skills to turn it around. (SH)

music: Sinéad O’Connor Dome Weds 8th

Rising to fame with her precocious ‘87 debut ‘The Lion And The Cobra’, before sealing the deal with an emotive take on the Prince-penned tearjerker ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’,’ Sinéad O’Connor has always been a vital – and often controversial figure in the music world. Calmer now than in her early ‘banshee’ days, this should be an eloquent, if intense, show, that pulls songs from her vast career and new album ‘How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?’. (TLB)

Talk: Lionel Shriver’s Who Needs Another Book? Corn Exchange Sat 11th

Memorably eerie, Lionel Shriver’s prize-winning novel We Need To Talk About Kevin was the sort of runaway bestseller every coffee shop writer dreams about. She’s sold millions of copies in dozens of countries whilst maintaining a quirky, arthouse style, had a major box office film made, and tours the world talking about books. She’s in a good position then, to judge whether any of us need another book, and what drives writers to create more. (JMM)

Talk: When Does A Comic Become A Graphic Novel? Dome Studio Theatre Weds 15th

Are graphic novels just comics for the kind of people who read Harry Potter with the grown-up dust jackets on? Is it possible to write a comic about Auschwitz? Does anyone say ‘pow!’ any more? Graphic novelist Woodrow Phoenix and his contemporaries Nye Wight and Hannah Berry debate the cultural shift to graphic novels, their criteria and content, and their personal favourites in this talk hosted by comics fanatic Tim Pilcher. (JMM)

THEATRE: Bullet Catch Spiegeltent Thurs 16th – Sun 19th

Rob Drummond’s William Wonder character is a man adroit at mind-bending, theatre, magic and levitation, and for his trick at this ‘ere Fringe he’s resurrecting the stern-browed intensity of Derren Brown’s roulette wheeling ways and attempting a stunt so morbid Houdini turned it down. The origins of the bullet catch date back 400 years, with a finale braver than attempting a smile at a bus driver on a rain-lashed single-decker full of sweaty men bearing moist-coated bulldogs. (BM)

Film: Bug A Fatboy Slim Special Dome Mon 20th

Adam Buxton’s irreverent Bug celebration of music video turns its attentions to the mighty visual work of Fatboy Slim and his collaborators, most famously Spike Jonze. Christopher Walken’s gravity defying dance routine in ‘Weapon Of Choice’ and the mall moves of the Torrance Community Dance Group in ‘Praise You’ are Slim and Jonze’s twin peaks, but there’s plenty more for Buxton to pick over this evening. You’d be making a pretty safe bet to assume that Norman will be in the house somewhere tonight too. (SH)

Page 42

Music: The Flaming Lips Dome Weds 22nd

For a Brighton Festival directed by a master of children’s literature, the appearance of The Flaming Lips – a band who never let go of their childhood wonder – is a beautiful booking. Although known for their colourful live shows, all sprays of confetti, giant inflatables, hand puppets and cartoonery, the Lips’ new album ‘The Terror’ is a markedly more sombre reflection on life without love. Hopefully tonight’s gig will be both moving and joyous and we might even see Michael Rosen crowdsurf too. (SH)

Talk: Martin Parr’s Desert Island Pics Corn Exchange Sat 25th

Iconic photographer Martin Parr has got an eye for a brilliant image and is known for his critical, funny snapshots of modern British life, capturing package holidays and pudding bowl haircuts with equal aplomb. As well as being a lifelong photojournalist, he’s an avid photo book collector, and in this talk will be discussing his eight favourite photographs with fellow artist Stephen Bull. (JMM)

Music: Musik Kabarett Dome Sat 25th

This festival exclusive aims to recreate the counter-culture theatre of Berlin in the 20s and 30s. Berlin-born political punk goddess Nina Hagen should be the perfect exponent of the theatrical, anti-establishment songs from the Weimar era. Following his stunning 2009 concert of Harold Arlen songs, angel-voiced David McAlmont returns to Brighton to put his own stamp on some classic numbers. Jamie McDermott and his atmospheric band The Irrepressibles complete the eclectic line up – check out their powerful ‘Nude’ trilogy. (SC)

Comedy: Off The Cuff Three And Ten Fri 3rd, Mon 6th, Mon 27th

Off The Cuff are a group of comedic comrades who specialise in short-form improv, with musical numbers and the occasional long-form odyssey thrown in for good measure. Their beautifully imaginative, hilarious quickfire comedy flows seamlessly, interweaving audience suggestions without missing a beat. A big hit at the Edinburgh Festival and a regular Saturday night institution in Brighton, they’ve also launched a live radio show incorporating chat, music, improv and guests from the scene on Brighton & Hove Community Radio. (LL)

Cabaret: Twonkey’s Blue Cababra Temple Bar Sat 4th – Mon 6th

Mr Twonkey’s utterly peculiar Fringe appearances are nigh on unmissable, a morbid combination of music, puppetry and audience participation landing somewhere between Vic Reeves’ Big Night Out and Michael Bentine’s Potty Time. Without wishing to spoil the illusion, you might care to know that Twonkey himself is actually an alter ego of Paul Vickers, perhaps more widely known as frontman with Scottish Peel show favourites Dawn Of The Replicants. A frequently side-splitting, slightly unsettling flight of imagination. (SH)

COMEDY: Scottish Falsetto Socks - In Space Komedia Thurs 9th – Fri 10th

Kev F Sutherland aims to turn his high-pitched anklesoothers into the Morecambe & Wise of the Scottish sock gimp world. While that premise might sound like the sort of faddish guffaw you’d only enjoy via a pissed YouTube misclick, the longevity of this show is a testament to the strength of his script and puppetry skills. Its musicality and tempo are also reliably spellbinding, leading to a string of awards and TV appearances over the past few years. (BM)

Cabaret: The Lovely Brothers Komedia Sun 19th

Sure, lounge punk cabaret isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but The Lovely Brothers have won us over with two solid strategies. Firstly their songs are seriously earworm-catchy. You’ll find yourself singing along to the chorus of their ode to kebabs before it’s even ended in an anarchic explosion. On top of that the brothers of loveliness are extremely funny, despite songs about the misery of life on the margins. There’s truth here too, from behind the costumes, balaclavas and gasmasks. If you weren’t laughing, you might be very disturbed indeed. (JK)

Performance: In Transit Old Courtroom Thurs 23rd – Fri 24th

Artichoke are best know for their Artgroup, classes that have been getting kids excited about all aspects of the arts for years now. But for this year’s Fringe they’re presenting something very grown up. With moments of beauty amongst a dark tale of identity, this one woman show of physical theatre sees Florence Leon explore “untethered canvases flapping arrhythmically” in her character Ella’s mind. It promises to be uplifting, no doubt helped by Rhys Lovell from The Miserable Rich’s live soundtrack. (JK)

THEATRE: The Wordcatcher Warren Sat 25th – Tues 28th

As many an unfortunately-faced culture writer might tell you, the best things in life can look deceptively clownish. Smoking Apples are a theatre company who’ve been gaining increasing reverence for their puppetry during the past few years, recently winning backing from the Arts Council. This show pitches two lost souls in a chance meeting leading to more twists and turns than a batshit go-go dancer snorting acid on hot coals. It also fulfils your physical theatre quotient for the month. (BM)

Music: Carrie Tree

Brunswick Mon 27th, Soul Dome Weds 29th – Fri 31st

Brighton folkie Carrie Tree has a busy May with the release of new single ‘Perfectly Cast’ and an appearance at the Alternative Escape with Lamb man Andy Dowd’s Lowb project. Her own trio perform first for the Fringe at The Brunswick, followed by three evenings of solo shows in Jubilee Square’s immersive Soul Dome. With a vivid 360-degree show of shapeshifting, natural visuals, the Soul Dome is one of this year’s must-visit venues, and in the company of Carrie Tree so much the better. (SH)

This quirky musical café delivers custom songs and performances with every course, which is a baffling concept to the uninitiated but wildly appreciated by all who have attended before.

Theatre: Breakfast At Dalkey

Redroaster Coffee House Sat 18th – Fri 24th (not Mon)

Think of Dublin in the theatre and an impressive roll call of playwrights springs to mind: Beckett, Shaw, WB Yeats, Brendan Behan, Seàn O Casey, the list goes on. Following in those inspiring footprints, Irish author Eddie Alford’s new play Breakfast At Dalkey is set in Dublin of the 1930s, and takes in themes of love and betrayal, family and ballroom dancing. How do you fit ballroom dancing into a narrow space like Redroaster? One way to find out. (SH)

Theatre: The Importance Of Being Earnest, 1936 Metrodeco Tues 7th – Sat 18th (not Sun or Mon)

There are two versions of Wilde’s classic comedy running at the Fringe this year, a faithful production over afternoon tea at the Grand Hotel and this reimagined take at Metrodeco. POLiTiKER Productions shunt the farce forward a few decades to 1936, allowing all manner of new satirical twists and historical nods to enter by the back door. This could be akin to old Oscar scripting the “Don’t mention the war” episode of Fawlty Towers, or nothing of the sort, but laughs are pretty much guaranteed. (SH)

www.alpro.com/coffee


Theatre: Lyrics To Life Moksha Caffe Thurs 9th – Sat 11th

Lyrics To Life is (almost) a one-woman show that does unexpected things with the words of our favourite songs, and perhaps a few of the worst. Inspired by her teenage world of compilation tapes. Brighton’s Rosaline Nickerson takes wellknown lyrics as the springboard for some imaginative sketches, sidelining the singing as the songs take on new lives of their own. As with pop itself, this should unite themes both personal and universal, but she’s promising it’ll be fun. (SH)

Tour: Pavilion Gardens Café History Tour

Pavilion Gardens Café Various dates Fri 10th – Sun 26th

A 90 minute tour of the Lanes, focused on its starting point of the iconic Pavilion Gardens Café. The present Art Deco style café was built in 1950, but its original owner had been trading in the Royal Pavilion Gardens for many years before. Tour guide Geoffrey Mead can tell you more as he guides you around the gardens, Pavilion, Dome and surrounding areas. It’d be foolish not to grab refreshments while you’re there though. (SH)

Music: The Red Lamps Pavilion Gardens Café Weds 8th

The Red Lamps are a group of children and young adults from Chailey Heritage School near Lewes, some of whom have profound and multiple learning difficulties. At this morning’s free concert, the musicians will take to the streets to perform jazz improvisations with soundbeam technology, intercepting ultra-sonic beams with their body movements to create unique sound art. No other musician in the Fringe is doing anything like this, so chalk one up for the kids. (SH)

Theatre: The Revenge Fantasy Club Metrodeco Sat 4th - Sun 5th, Mange Tout Mon 6th - Weds 8th

If you’re one of those people who like a good eavesdrop in the hope of hearing something juicy then Mark C Hewitt’s play The Revenge Fantasy Club may be the perfect way to spend an evening. In a very intimate venue it starts out as merely overhearing a couple of ladies having an idle chat. As it progresses however, the idle chat gradually gets ever more spicy until your initial preconceptions about these two seemingly innocent ladies are shattered. (LL)

Theatre: Signor Baffo St Ann’s Well Gardens Café Sat 11th, Sat 25th, Weds 29th – Sat 1st June

A lively helping of kids’ theatre, slap bang in the middle of the beautiful St Ann’s Well Gardens. Chef Signor Baffo (Brighton actor Oliver Harrison) serves up silliness, mischief and adventure in this interactive show, ideal for children ages 3 – 7. It’s another Brighton Fringe premiere, so we’ve no previews to fall back on to give you an idea on quite how loud or messy this’ll get. The kids’ll lap it up though. (SH)

A Renaissance woman and a much loved Brightonian, an afternoon in her company is time pleasurably spent. (SH)

Theatre: The Tempest Pavilion Garden Café Weds 15th – Fri 17th

Having produced enviable success stories such as Adele, Amy Winehouse and Brighton natives Rizzle Kicks, the BRIT School name carries considerable weight in the performing arts world. Some of their current students now turn their attention to Shakespeare’s epic of shipwreck, love and jealousy, The Tempest. Performing three interpretations over three days, with three casts and free tickets, there’s no reason not to go down to see a possible future star in the making. (LL)

Counting jewellers, painters and mosaic makers amongst their numbers, they are holding workshops and open studios to demonstrate their various wares and skills. It’s on the same site as the Naked Eye Art Gallery, if you fancy looking at even more creative creations. (JMM)

Ted Davis is an inclusive kind of photographer, and in the warm inviting manner of the Open Houses is opening up his studio to anyone who wants to see how it all works and have their picture taken by a professional.

SOURCE often calls on the talents of Rob Orchard, a man who can be found out and about with his camera seven nights a week at the city’s gigs. As well as producing the Brighton Music Blog, he’ll be exhibiting photographic works at this large group open house. Fellow photographers Kate Benjamin and Alex and Lisa Bamford also take part, next to papercuts and more from Hannah Cole and Lee Allbrow, Maureen Brigden’s sculpture, Chris Harrison’s graphic art and jewellery by Rock Cakes.

UK Contemporary Open House 24A Buckingham Place BN1 3PJ Sat & Sun 12-5pm

Stencil artist Martin Middleton has the unsung distinction of reinventing the streets of Brighton, when his bright Cassette Lord designs proliferated across telephone junction boxes throughout the city. Many of those distinctive pieces have since disappeared under the work of other sponsored artists, but his pieces at the UK Contemporary will remind you of what we’ve lost. Also exhibiting are Elise Buddle, Patson Ncube and Claire Wrixon. (SH)

FestivalS

Words by Steve Clements, simon england, Stuart Huggett, liam lawrence, Amy Jo McLellan, Jessica Marshall McHattie

Bestival

September 5th - 8th / Robin Hill Country Park, Isle Of Wight / £190 66 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Elton John, Snoop Dogg DON’T MISS: M.I.A, The Knife, Chic Featuring Nile Rodgers Created by Rob Da Bank and his wife Josie, Bestival is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year with a suitably nautical fancy dress theme, fitting due to its location on the Isle Of Wight. Established alternative favourites Franz Ferdinand and The Flaming Lips sit alongside newer artists such as Bastille and Savages. Expect to see sailors and mermaids not only during headliner Elton John‘s set, but partying throughout the night as Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin and a host of other DJs keep things going after dark. There is even a rare chance to hear the music of Daft Punk live as a cover band plays ‘Discovery’ in full. (SE) IN A NUTSHELL: A great party atmosphere, with music long into the night.

Boardmasters

August 7th – 11th / Watergate Bay, Cornwall / £116 257 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: The Vaccines, Basement Jaxx, Ben Howard DON’T MISS: Dusky, Grandmaster Flash, Friction Stoked! Dude! Sick! Duuuuude! Expect to hear these and many other similar phrases hundreds of times over these five days. With BMX, skateboard and surf performances happening throughout, Boardmasters has identified its target audience and is doing everything in its power to keep them blissfully content. With soaking up the sun on Fistral Beach promising to be the perfect hangover cure after nights of debauchery and extreme-ish sports, you’d better break out the board shorts dude. (LL) IN A NUTSHELL: Sun, sand and surfing interspersed with big name acts.

Boomtown Fair

August 8th - 11th / Matterley Estate, Hampshire / £149 75 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Foreign Beggars, Lee Scratch Perry, Mad Caddies DON’T MISS: The Junk, Mak & Pasteman, Mungo’s Hi-Fi

Page 50

snoop dogg (see bestival)

Billing itself as more of a temporary town than a standard festival, Boomtown’s not the one for you if you like to take your weekend easy. Beyond the many stages of ska, punk, reggae, dub and folk music, there’s a theatre, mobile cabaret, art installations, comedy, spoken word events and a lot of very excitable and dressed-up attendees. Everyone raves about this one, and with good reason. (JMM) IN A NUTSHELL: You won’t sleep much, but you won’t want to.

Charleston Literary Festival

May 17th - 26th / Charleston, nr Lewes / £various 16 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Audrey Niffenegger, Melvyn Bragg, Pat Barker DON’T MISS: Mark Haddon, David Boyd Haycock If you’re thinking you should do something other than get really drunk in a field and lose your wellies in the mud this year, you might just be ready for Charleston Literary Festival. It’s near Lewes so not as much of a commitment as Hay-on-Wye, but attracts similar big name speakers. This year there are 28 talks and tickets can either be bought separately or in day-long blocks of four if you fancy full literary immersion. It’s held in the beautiful Charleston farmhouse, so arrive early enough to wander around the grounds. (JMM) IN A NUTSHELL: You’re far too wet for camping, anyway.

End of the Road

August 30th - September 1st / Larmer Tree Gardens, Dorset / £165 102 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Sigur Rós, Belle and Sebastian, Eels DON’T MISS: Poliça, Woodpecker Wooliams, Wolf Alice Arguably Britain’s most twee festival, End Of The Road is held at the beautiful Larmer Tree Pleasure Gardens and features free-roaming peacocks and macaws, a sunken water garden, knitting workshops and a hell of a lot of beards. It’s one of the friendliest, politest festivals out there, so if you like bellowing the words along to your favourite band’s set, it’s probably not for you. However, if you have more than one type of tea in your cupboard and used to play the ukulele, it probably is. (JMM) IN A NUTSHELL: Dig out that woolly jumper and look up some obscure Swedish folk beforehand.

Farmfestival

July 26th – 27th / Gilcombe Farm, Bruton / £50 125 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Ghostpoet, Art Brut DON’T MISS: Reeps One, DJ Die Farmfestival started out as a stage built on the back of a lorry by a group of friends looking to throw a summer party and raise money for charity. Six years on and the festival has grown but the spirit has stayed the same. An adamantly sponsor-free weekend, inviting all ages to come and have a bit of fun, Farmfestival’s DIY aesthetic and genre encompassing music policy make for a truly unique experience. (LL) IN A NUTSHELL: A wallet-friendly event, seemingly cobbled together by your mates.

The Great Skinhead Reunion

May 31st – June 2nd / Volks, Brighton / £30 0 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Lee Thompson, Booze & Glory DON’T MISS: The Bois, Jenny Woo Skinhead culture was born from the mod subculture of the 60s and although it has suffered much negative publicity, it was and still is a celebration of that trademark look and a love of Jamaican reggae. The Great Skinhead Reunion started in 2011 when some old skins got chatting on Facebook and decided to meet for a pint. Amazingly, 300 skinheads turned up to that first meeting and it has continued growing. Now covering three nights and playing host to Europe’s top reggae DJs, it attracts hundreds of skins of all ages from all over the world. (LL) IN A NUTSHELL: A proud celebration of a culture that has survived through thick and thin.

Jersey Live

Aug 31st - Sep 1st / Royal Jersey Showground, Jersey / £92 200 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Fatboy Slim, The Cribs DON’T MISS: Netsky, Zeds Dead For all his previous ubiquity, Norman Cook’s appearances in Brighton are few and far between these days, and more often than not are mega-sized. If you’re craving your Fatboy fix after

last year’s Amex shows, Jersey Live have bagged him for their tenth anniversary bash this summer, as well as fellow superstar DJ Pete Tong. Rising Sussex songwriting star Tom Odell also gets a high spot on a dance-heavy bill that’s shaping up nicely. (SH) IN A NUTSHELL: A beautiful island holiday and budget festival combined.

Love Supreme Jazz Festival

July 5th – 7th / Glynde Place, Glynde / £120 8 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Bryan Ferry, Jools Holland DON’T MISS: Portico Quartet, Andreya Triana Any new local festival should be applauded and supported and with a line-up this good, let’s hope Love Supreme’s a success. In addition to the safe bet headliners Bryan Ferry and Jools Holland, someone in the know has booked the cream of the current jazz crop, with vocal sensation Gregory Porter, bass diva Esperanza Spalding and hot chanteuse Melody Gardot all performing on the Sunday. For the dancers there’s an electro swing night, Brand New Heavies and the irresistible Nile Rodgers’ Chic. (SC) IN A NUTSHELL: Ideal for hamper campers, hipsters and disco dollies.

Meadowlands

May 24th – 26th / Glynde Place, Lewes / £95 12 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: British Sea Power, Laurent Garnier DON’T MISS: Native Roses, Ty, The Wytches Brighton’s nearest quality camping festival, Meadowlands’ bill steps up another gear this year with the smart booking of British Sea Power, straight off touring this year’s magnificent ‘Machinery Of Joy’, for what will undoubtedly be a celebratory show. French DJ headliner Laurent Garnier aside, much of the bill draws heavily from the rest of the Brighton music scene, while there’s an impressive comedy and cabaret presence from Three And Ten/The Warren bookers Otherplace Productions. (SH) IN A NUTSHELL: Brighton’s best boutique festival experience.

Nice Weather For Airstrikes

May 24th - 26th / Druids Arms, Brighton / Free 0 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Codes In The Clouds, Shrines DON’T MISS: Fox In The City, Polymath It’s the fifth annual Nice Weather For Airstrikes party and the Druids Arms will be home to three days of free music, courtesy of some of Brighton’s best local bands and a few from further afield. It’s an exciting gig for hosts Monsters Build Mean Robots, who will be fresh from their European tour and ready to debut some new material on home turf. May’s hugely busy for everyone in Brighton but it’s worth making time for this. (JMM) IN A NUTSHELL: Good music and good beer, good location for stumbling home.

Redfest

July 26th – 27th / Robins Cook Farm, Redhill / £65 33 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Dry The River, Bastille, Bury Tomorrow DON’T MISS: Lucy Rose, Loveable Rogues, Dog Is Dead After several years as an alternative festival, Redfest is widening its appeal by booking indie acts alongside the pop likes of Britain’s Got Talent trio Loveable Rogues. Fans of Redfest’s familiar rock flavours will still be entertained by the likes of Hacktivist and Bleed From Within. There’s also a silent disco and a stage curated by Guildford music venue The Boileroom to showcase new talent and cabaret. On paper, it reads a little messy but if it’s thrown together with its usual charm, it’ll work. (AJM) IN A NUTSHELL: A small independent that’s big on variety.

Secret Garden Party

July 25th – 28th / Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire / £201.50 140 miles from Brighton HEADLINERS: Django Django, Bastille, Soulwax DON’T MISS: Temples, Regina Spektor

Page 54

Secret Garden Party was one of the first in the, er, field to promote the boutique festival experience, prioritising fancy dress themes, sideshows and immersive art as highly as the musical guests. In the face of much imitation they still do it better than the rest, as attested to by the top drawer acts they attract. Losing your head in the country to Django Django is gonna be one of the best choices you make this summer, even if you do wake up dressed as a cat in a tutu. (SH) IN A NUTSHELL: A surprise around every tree.

Slam Dunk South

May 26th / University Of Hertfordshire, Hatfield / £34 78 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: All Time Low, Deaf Havana DON’T MISS: Four Year Strong, Kids In Glass Houses It’s long been dubbed the UK’s answer to Warped Tour and that label is still sticking – even with the real thing in London this November. Touring across the country, Slam Dunk will also visit Wolverhampton for the first time this year. The growing number of dates hasn’t shrunk the size of its southern stop though. The line-up at this yearly invasion of American poppunk is as strong as ever and there are also plenty of British names playing who you won’t want to miss. (AJM) IN A NUTSHELL: The closest thing the UK has to Warped Tour - in summer.

Soundwave

July 18th – 22nd / Tisno, Croatia / £119 1,250 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Doom, DJ Shadow DON’T MISS: Bonobo, Quantic, Such is the popularity of the burgeoning Croatian festival market with Brighton artists and punters, we sometimes wonder if everyone else has found a secret portal to the Med hidden behind Asda. Soundwave’s line-up is strong on hip hop and the soulful end of dance, so it’s no surprise to see a heavy presence of artists from the Tru Thoughts roster on board. Talking of which, there’s boat parties too, and you don’t get much of that off Black Rock. (SH) IN A NUTSHELL: Don’t forget to pack your trunks.

HEADLINERS: Little Barrie, Stone Foundation DON’T MISS: Traams, Jake Shillingford Band St Ann’s Well’s family fun day always scores highly when it comes to musical entertainment. The show starts at midday, so get there nice and early for Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer’s lunchtime chap hop slot. Barrie Cadogan’s bluesy power trio Little Barrie and seven-piece soul band Stone Foundation grab the headline slots, but with Jake Shillingford promising a set of his My Life Story songs and SOURCE favourites Jennifer Left and new FatCat signings Traams on the bill we recommend settling in for the whole day. (SH) IN A NUTSHELL: A strong music line-up is just one element of this free family festival.

Summer Sound

July 20th / Gloucester Park, Gloucestershire / Free 147 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Kids In Glass Houses DON’T MISS: Chlöe Howl, The Struts In the current economic climate, even the smallest of festivals can be expensive. By the time you’ve paid for your tickets, tent and wellies, you’re making a serious financial commitment. However, Summer Sound is a non-ticketed festival without camping. What’s not to love? The location, perhaps. However, if you do find yourself in Gloucester this summer, you’ll be treated to a day of free music from surprisingly decent acts. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain, for the sake of the lucky locals. (AJM) IN A NUTSHELL: A free festival not to be sniffed at.

Sunrise: Another World

May 30th – June 2nd / Thoulstone Park, Wiltshire / £115 120 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Dub Pistols, The Beat DON’T MISS: JFB, The Egg Sunrise decided that the end of the Mayan calendar last year

Page 56

was as good a time as any to bring an end to their Celebration event and have Another World rise from the ashes. Billing itself as a festival micro-nation with options to buy visas rather than tickets, it comes complete with its own embassy in Somerset. It aims to be completely sustainable and very environmentally conscious, so expect laid-back vibes with a genre spanning line-up and hippies galore. (LL) IN A NUTSHELL: Possibly the cleanest, greenest festival you’ll ever go to.

Tomorrowland

July 26th - 28th / Boom, Belgium / £150 267 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Steve Aoki, Marco Carola, Alesso DON’T MISS: Armin Van Buuren, Dismantle This fairytale festival set in the aptly named Boom in Belgium has become the stuff of lore for dance music devotees. The biggest festival of its kind on the planet, Tomorrowland attracts the cream of the crop of the dance music world every year and spares no expense on the jaw-dropping production and set design. This has resulted in it becoming an almost religious pilgrimage for any true fan of the genre and certainly cemented itself in the dance history books. (LL) IN A NUTSHELL: A fantastical, colourful and downright mad trip to dance music wonderland.

Victorious Festival

August 24th – 25th / Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Portsmouth / £15 per day 51 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Level 42, Maximo Park DON’T MISS: DJ Yoda, Delphic With the world famous HMS Victory and the bustling Portsmouth harbour providing the backdrop, new familyfriendly festival Victorious is already sounding pretty unique. The all-ages nature of the event is shown by a bill that boasts an appearance from Peppa Pig alongside hitmakers like The Feeling and that nice Charlotte Church. Late night DJs and an indie/rock stage with TEED, Nine Black Alps and The Cribs add a credible edge. Not a camping event. (SH) IN A NUTSHELL: It covers all tastes, but the guests are top rate.

Words by hayley simpson photo by lomo kev at lomokev.com/style

Gone are the days when teenagers in Brighton were snapping shag bands and sporting stripy arm warmers outside Churchill Square. Scarlett, a 15-year-old we spotted, does grunge in the coolest way – mixing oversized vintage pieces with cutsie day-glo bright accessories and girlish touches. “The artist Grimes is brilliant because she’s so adorable but wears baggy clothes and bindis and is just completely mad,” says Scarlett. “Other girls my age think that going into Dirty Harry and buying off the racks makes them original but actually they’re kinda afraid to find their own style.” Styles may change, but teenage angst never really does. “I’m just about to do my GCSEs and it’s absolutely horrible. As soon as I get home I’m on Tumblr forgetting everything I’ve learnt.” So what does a 15-year-old want to do with their life once the hell of exams are over? “I really want to be a farmer. I’m obsessed with pigs and I just want to look after them all the time.” Headscarf from gran “I tend to wear headscarves when my hair isn’t a very interesting colour. I’ve been loads of other colours like blue and I’m going green tomorrow. My parents have just got used to it.” Coat from Snoopers Paradise “I got this for 10p! I like the colour because you can wear it with anything and it’s so, so comfy.” Shirt from Dirty Harry “I tend to wear a lot of big, men’s shirts. I don’t really wear dresses, but I will wear skirts. You can’t see it, but I’m wearing a vintage velvet one underneath from Beyond Retro. I like wearing a lot of different textures.” Necklace from Tuff Tarts “This was a gift from my sister. I really like the drippy horror-style writing. I don’t really wear much other jewellery, apart from loads of rings that I picked up in France for a Euro each. They’re all too big for my hands and I look like a pimp.” Shoes from Underground “I wear them every day and they are almost completely broken now. I’m going to get some Doc Marten loafers next.” Socks “I don’t know where these are from but I tend to wear white socks all the time.”

No. 40 Julian Caddy Words By Stuart Huggett. Photo by james kendall Running in parallel with Brighton Festival, the annual Brighton Fringe is the largest open access arts festival in England. Julian Caddy has been festival director since 2011. How did you get involved in the Fringe? I’d been working at Edinburgh Fringe since 1996, so I’d been looking at Brighton and sending down shows for a long time. I was taken on as Brighton director at the end of October 2011 but this is the first Fringe that I’ve been involved with from the very start. What’s your own arts background? I’ve been an actor, director, producer. I started life as an account exec in an advertising agency, then at the age of 28 I ran away and became a drama student. So I’ve done lots of National Theatre tours, bit parts on TV and film, lots of adverts, and I teach acting at Conway Hall in London. About three or four months ago I did a pilot for a web series in Brighton, a day shoot, just because it’s quite amusing to do. How can people get involved in the Fringe? You just need to decide on the event that you want to put on, where and when you want to do it, and then register through the Fringe website. You can call the office up and we’ll talk you through it. It’s a very simple process, and you pay a fee which covers things including the brochure, the website and the events that we put on throughout the year, just globally lots of support. What if you’re creative but skint? We have a lottery of 12 bursaries available each year which go to local residents. The only criteria are that you have a BN postcode and that you’re participating for the first time. I’m very aware that open access is only open access for people who can afford to pay the fee. It would be great if we had a model where we would still be able to provide the same services but the registration was free. We’re looking for as many things as possible to lower the barriers of entry, so answers on a postcard.

In Conversation with

Jane Bom-Bane

Brighton’s most creative café owner gets ready for The Fringe Words And Photo By James Kendall

Jane Bom-Bane is the Fringe personified – imaginative, quirky and more than a little bit endearing. As well as running the oddest café in town – the eponymous and quite brilliant Bom-Bane’s – she’s an Edinburgh veteran with madcap songs and hats to match. No, not caps, mechanical hats that come to life to illustrate her compositions. Yep, you read that right. How did the quirky madness of Bom-Bane’s start? Before I opened Bom-Bane’s I was playing a lot of music up and down the country, with my then partner Nick Pynn. We were running a monthly night at The Sanctuary and one month I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be great to have your harmoniums and your hats in one place, and have a little venue down stairs, have a little café upstairs.’ I thought originally it’d just be me and the café, and play a few songs every now and then. It just evolved into what it is now, which is involving lots of other people playing, cinema clubs and all manner of stuff going on. What started the Bom-Bane’s related musicals? Bom-Bane’s mark two, in terms of the people who worked here, involved a lovely girl called Rosie and her friend Candy. I just thought they were perfect for the place, but both turned out to have amazing voices and were really great at harmonising. I thought ‘I’ve got to harness this!’ And so, that became Bom-Bane’s The Musical. I wrote all these songs about setting up Bom-Bane’s, and the food, and everybody got involved. I think that helped put us on the map. Do you choose the people that work at Bom-Bane’s based on musical ability? No, not at all. People just find me. It’s people that are just really nice and willing to work hard. I suppose it’s just likeminded people really. And often those people can sing, but sometimes they can’t and sometimes they won’t. But in the end they usually do.

Page 64

What have you got going on at the Fringe this year? We’ve got something different going on most nights of May – different comedy, music, art, dance and films, including Stewart Lee, George Edgo and Joanna Neary. And during the daytime we’ve got this crossword trail where 20 local artists will have painted the 20 doors in the property – upstairs, downstairs, outside, inside. On each of these doors are pockets of clues, the customers go round the house looking for the doors and finding the clues that go with their crossword. What is it about the Fringe that you like? I just think it’s really exciting. It used to be like this with me and the Edinburgh Fringe, I used to like to do a new thing each year for that. And now I try and do a new thing here every May. It’s exciting because you feel very much a part of Brighton. It brings together all the people you’ve met since you’ve been here. And also, I don’t have to go very far to be entertained. I just sit on my stairs. Where did the idea of mechanical hats come from? They just grew from going up to Edinburgh. The first year I went I took my really big harmonium, a middle-sized harmonium and a little tiny harmonium, with different sized hats to match. And then I just thought, ‘Well I can’t go to Edinburgh again doing the same thing,’ so the hats started to develop. They started to light up, and then they started to turn, and move in different ways. Then they started to illustrate the songs I was writing.

six Of The Best

a big ball of string

In celebration of children’s author Michael Rosen’s guest directorship of this year’s Brighton Festival we choose the books that sparked our imagination as kids. When we do this again in 20 years time it will be Best Children’s Apps, of course.

A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett

At boarding school, pupil Sara Crewe lives a high life of celebrity status and fur-trimmed bonnets. Tragically, dear Papa loses his fortune and dies in India, leaving evil headmistress Miss Minchin to banish Sara to the attic to live with rats and the lower orders, without even her lady’s maid to button her dress. Combining mis-lit and period drama this one’s a guaranteed tearjerker, despite the relatively happy ending. Steer clear of Disney’s sugar-coated film version - her dad’s dead, DEAD, he doesn’t suddenly reappear at the end for fuck’s sake. (RK)

The Faraway Tree Series by Enid Blyton

These tales of mystical woodland folk held generations of children spellbound with fantasies of climbing the branches to the transient lands above. They’re as full of alarming adventures with sociopathic goblins as Blyton’s writing is crammed with casual racism. The frankly awesome ‘Land Of Take-What-You-Want’ fuelled an avarice in us that, despite the book’s easily pleased wartime children being satisfied with a spade for Father and some hens, no doubt paved the way for our sense of entitlement, the crushing disappointment of real life and inevitable subsequent shoplifting career. (RK)

Forever

by Judy Blume

Pre-internet, there was no Vice Guide To Double Penetration to hand, and lusty 20th century teens had to rely on finding specialist magazines in the hedge for sexual guidance. Little wonder then that Judy’s sex-manual-cum-cumming-of-age-romance between goody-goody Katherine and eager Michael and his BFF Ralph, was passed round the classroom quicker than chlamydia at a West Street under-14s night. The characters – who sidestep the traditional rites of passage like pissed up fingering by the youth club bins – seem implausibly sensible to our modern eyes, but thankfully the advice within made us think twice before dousing anyone’s testicles in Moustache aftershave. (RK)

Children’s Books Words by Ben Bailey, James Kendall, Rosie Kendall, Teoh Lander-Boyce

A Big Ball Of String by Marion Holland

You really can’t choose what captures your imagination as a kid. This simple story from the Dr Seuss stable is about a boy who collects up scraps of – you guessed it – string to make – yep – a big ball. Simple times. “With a BIG ball of string, I could do ANYTHING,” says the enthusiastic, poetic story. But the words were just a tiny part of what conjured up adventures in our mind. The 1950s pencil illustrations are so evocative we felt like we were there tangled up with him. (JK)

The BFG

by Roald Dahl

Aged eight, it doesn’t seem bizarre that your rather tall mate can catch ‘dreams’ in his ears, sharing out the good ones by ‘blowing’ them into children’s bedrooms. Nor is it peculiar he’s adamant on whipping out the remaining members of his race to avoid eating ‘snozzcumber’. Like any good friend, you call in the Queen, King of Sweden and Sultan of Baghdad to resolve the situation. Yes, this is the heart-warming story of how Elizabeth II, Carl XVI and Saddam Hussein rally together to help a Jimmy Saville-like figure silence his paedophile-ring with vegetables that make you fart. (TLB)

The Warlock Of Firetop Mountain by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone

Part story, part game this was a book in which YOU were the hero! Interactive and non-linear, it allowed you to make the character’s choices for them, and – because cheating was almost mandatory – required you to use a dexterous finger-bookmarking system to ensure you could always backtrack. Despite all that, it was total fun. What it lacked in plot (a wizard has some treasure, you want it) was offset by the quirky details and eerie atmosphere. It was an instant hit in 1982, kickstarted the bestselling Fighting Fantasy series and acted as a RPG gateway drug for a generation born before computer games were any good. (BB)
