best issue evah!

If you did a graph of the confidence of the SOURCE office about the issue we’re usually working on it would be up and down like a bride’s nightie. Week one we have no idea what to put in it. The second week sees us a bit more planned out and looking forward to really getting stuck in. By three weeks in we’re massively behind and we aren’t sure we’ll ever get it together. Then we get on it, but not quick enough and the frantic last couple of days make things tense. After a day of proofing and arguing about commas and weeding out the Americanized spellings someone will pipe up (and it’s normally the editor’s job), “I think this is the best issue we’ve ever done!” By the time it comes back from the printers we’re bored of it and want to make a better one. This issue – which is our 14th birthday – we’ve been excited about it all month. We talked to Bat For Lashes but didn’t even put her on the cover. No, we were too gripped by derby fever not to put the Brighton Rockers centre stage. We’ve also, slightly randomly, given you a board game for those encroaching nights. It’s a version of Paul Stapleton’s brilliant Brighton-based BN1 game. All that and 12 pages of previews. We just hope we haven’t ballsed it up in some way.

Moving Pictures

The Miniclicks events at the Photo Fringe have been great – talks and workshops that really get to the heart of the content, not the technical details. The one we’re most excited about – so excited we’re sponsoring it – ends the season on Tues 13th at The Old Market. Sixteen world class photographers get to show 20 slides and talk about each for 20 seconds, so things move pretty quickly. Signed up to the Pecha Kucha format are Taylor Wessing winner Jooney Woodward, 140 Characters photographer Chris Floyd, and Tim Bowditch, who will be talking about his ace Japanese tourist project.

Interstellar Motordrive

Uniting the distant worlds of progressive psychedelia and vintage vehicles, Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason is one of hundreds of enthusiasts taking part in the annual London To Brighton Veteran Car Run on Sun 4th. A regular participant in the charity drive, the event finds Mason seated behind a 5-litre, 1901 Panhard instead of his customary drum kit. Passing the chequered flag at Madeira Drive, the Veteran Car Run predates even the Floyd: it was first held in 1896.

Gatsby Fashion

Think class, elegance and flappers as Sussex University’s Fashion and RAG Societies bring you their most ambitious charity fashion show to date. On Weds 7th, Brighton’s fashionistas are invited to enter the opulent world of ‘The Great Gatsby’ at All Saints Church in Hove. From wedding dresses and exclusively designed lingerie to vintage finds from Beyond Retro, this isn’t your typical school hall, Inbetweenersesque charity fashion show.

Mean Poppa Gone

Brassy funk rock showmen Mean Poppa Lean have called it a day after seven years together. They bow out with an

extended night of farewell shows on Fri 23rd, starting with two sets at The Haunt, featuring both the original and the current line-up of the band. Once The Haunt kicks out, they decamp to Sticky Mike’s for a late show of covers, collaborations and carousing. Tickets were flying out as we write, so bag yours before its too late, forever.

Glasgow See

By the time you read this you’ll have missed your chance to see the Brighton Photo Biennial, but don’t worry, the Photo Fringe still has a couple of weeks to run and there are some great new exhibitions for November. Probably the best of these is Human Endeavour’s follow up to the highly praised Degeneration. For Glasgow Effect they add a multimedia element to their large format landscape photos of the breakdown of urban spaces. It’s at the Phoenix from Tuesday 6th until Sunday 18th.

Olympic music

Sporting memories of London 2012 may be beginning to fade, but the souvenirs keep coming. Gentleman Starkey and Annaca both played on the Emerging Icons music stage in the Olympic Park this summer, and a tie-in album has just been released. The Brighton pair nab the opening two tracks on ‘Emerging Icons In The Park’, with 20 other competitionwinning acts from around the country joining them. The digital album costs a bargain £4.49 on iTunes.

Musical treasure

Singer, pianist and Belle And Sebastian collaborator Catherine Ireton plays the latest in her series of secret Treasure Tracks gigs on Sat 17th. Ireton took on the lion’s share of vocal duties on Stuart Murdoch’s God Help The Girl album project, soon to become a feature film. Previous Treasure Tracks shows have taken place in the Booth Museum and London Road Station (complete with ticket inspector musicians). Join catherineireton.com for a treasure map to this month’s show, in collaboration with SOURCE New Music.

Riki Tik

Life’s forever busy promoters are now taking over Riki Tik and turning it into a Caribbean themed reggae bar. We’re seriously excited about the prospect of walking in from a cold rainy evening to a warm tropical oasis. If you’ve ever shaken your boo-tay at Dagger you’ll know what to expect: a range of carnivalesque vibes including dancehall, dub, hip hop and UK funky. This is exactly what a winter of discontent needs.

Paganini Ballroom

The Old Ship Hotel’s Paganini Ballroom has been in use since the 18th Century, when it was part of Brighton’s Assembly Rooms. On Thurs 8th, Lout drag the Ballroom into the modern era with a unique show by one of the year’s fastest rising bands, London post-punk quartet Savages. Whether this remains a one-off event or the city is gaining a plush new gig venue will become apparent in time, but of course we’re hoping it’s the latter.

Yolo’s

In these financially testing times, no-one wants to get their caffeine crack from a company that has barely paid tax for 14 years (hello Starbucks), which is a boon for the indies. Now open on the Hove side of Western Road, Yolo’s offers seasonal espresso blends, filter coffees and more, plus live acoustic music, massive cakes and the best halloumi salad we’ve ever sampled. There are three music sessions each day, and players interested in a 15 minute unplugged slot can get in contact at facebook.com/Yolosbrighton

Drawing Club

Drawing Club is somewhere between a life drawing class and a gang of vigilante portrait artists. The idea behind it is that every Tuesday a flashmob of artists gather at a pre-determined location (usually a pub, to be fair) and sketch anyone they can see. Less nudity, more real-life drawing. Whether you fancy giving it a go or being an impromptu sitter, you can find out where the next chosen venue is at facebook.com/ drawing.clubbers.

Lenderise

Brighton is the launch city for Lenderise, a website that encourages the sharing of goods over ownership. Users offer items and skills they’re happy to lend to others for a nominal fee, with the site taking a 10% cut. Tagged with the buzz-phrase ‘collaborative consumption’, the lending library concept is on the increase (think of cloud storage music platforms and car pools) with many Brighton residents at the forefront of this community minded sharing. Have a browse at lenderise.com.

My Erotic Postcard

Female aficionados of French erotic postcards can now have their own portrait taken in the classic 1920s style. Iona Hodgson started recreating the sensitively styled nude shots while working as a freelance photographer in Spain, before moving her business to Brighton this year. Iona’s portraiture is aimed at women of all ages and shapes, and can be shot at home or in the studio. If your personal tastes are more Anaïs Nin than Fifty Shades, visit myeroticpostcard.com for details.

Elk

Few student nights like to describe themselves as student nights, so we won’t either. Launching on the 12th, Elk is Audio’s new late night Monday, aimed at those who like dancing into the early hours on £2 drinks to a soundtrack that includes Frank Ocean, Caribou and Grimes. It’s billed as a night of not just music but photography and, er, lifestyle, and it’ll be interesting to see how that works out in the depths of Audio.

GIG PREVIEWS

Words By Chris Biggs, Ian Chambers, Steve Clements. Nathaniel Forrester, Stuart Huggett, JAMES KENDALL, Jake Kennedy, Jessica Marshall McHattie, Amy Jo McLellan, Adam Peters, The Recommender, Matt Smith

Pig Destroyer

Haunt Thurs 1st

Relapse Records’ grindcore/thrash icons give us the pleasure of a Brighton visit on a short tour that includes only three shows outside of the US. Having not played in the UK for eight whole years, we’re extremely privileged to have them in one of the town’s most hardcore-friendly venues. Guaranteed to be packed from wall to wall this could literally be a once in a lifetime opportunity, and with new album ‘Book Burner’ released just a few days before the gig you’re in for a disgusting postHalloween treat. (CB)

Lawson

Concorde 2 Fri 2nd

alt-j

Alt-J

Concorde 2 Sun 4th

Mercury Prize nominees Alt-J (who could well be Mercury Prize winners by the time you read this) have had a brilliant year. Formed back in 2007, their debut album ‘An Awesome Wave’ finally arrived in May, along with a hotly tipped set at The Great Escape, and since then they’ve hit the touring circuit hard. By melding folk, art rock and electronica with memorable riffs and heartfelt, unique vocals, they’ve created a chart-friendly, pop-tinged formula for success. (JMM)

Haunt Sun 4th

source tickets

If you thought that Lawson were brothers, you may wonder why their ‘Hometown Tour’ has four different locations. If you knew they weren’t related and assumed they were manufactured, you’re also wrong. If you’re confused, you’ve mistaken them for Hanson or some other boy band. Their name doesn’t come from their birth certificates or an industry bigwig; it’s a tribute to the Dr Lawson who saved lead singer Andy Brown’s life. There’s a deeper side than their clean-cut image suggests. (AJM)

East London sisters Hannah and Colette Thurlow have slunk into the public consciousness with leather jackets, sneers and black skinny jeans. But beneath the cultivated grungy image is a musical style comparable to a modern Shirley Manson if she was Jamie xx’s little sister: punky, sincere vocals, crashing chord progressions and a lust to mix trash guitars with electronica. The release of this year’s wellproduced eponymous album has only served to build the hype further. (JMM)

Dog Is Dead

Ladyhawke

Haunt Sat 3rd

source tickets

Dog Is Dead have had huge summer success after becoming a favourite of Radio 1’s Huw Stephens. The Nottingham boys seem to have resurrected something long missed from the indiepop scene – variety. The combination of glockenspiel, sax and howling a cappella creates an atmosphere which you can’t help but move to. Having released their debut album ‘All Our Favorite Stories’ in October, this lot are certainly on the road to something big. (MS)

Concorde 2 Mon 5th

source tickets

We were so excited by ‘Back Of The Van’ – it was like the second coming of 80s, solo-era Stevie Nicks. But at 2008’s Great Escape we’ve never been so underwhelmed. Ladyhawke looked like she’d rather be at home doing the washing up. But the self-titled debut had some nice pop hits and we forgave her. She must have nailed her stage fright as iTunes got her to do a live album and her new LP is much more in your face too. Time to give her another chance. (JK)

blood on the dancefloor

Stig Of The Dump

Hope Tues 6th

Known for striking fear into the hearts of rap battle opponents, and probably the only UK hip hop veteran named after a childrens’ storybook, Stig Of The Dump is a kingpin of the scene. By the sound of his latest release ‘Cannon Fodder’, Stig’s still committed to sharp rhymes, cynicism and truth. Small Town Boredom is the support act and as ever with Slip Jam:B events there’s an open mic session hosted by last month’s SOURCE Unsung Hero Tom Hines. Guaranteed to be a hotbed of raw local talent and unpredictable battles. (JMM)

Poliça

Concorde 2 Tues 6th

source tickets

Formed following work in the group Gayngs, Minnesota’s Poliça are looking likely to become one of those slow burning success stories. Their bewitching ‘Give You The Ghost’ debut is obviously one signpost towards tonight’s show (which has notably been upgraded from The Haunt), from the double drummer set-up to Channy Leaneagh’s echo-laden, nearunintelligible vocals. But this comparatively young band’s more subtle impression is one of feel over the obvious direct hit, and cumulative sonic heartbreak over dated chestbeating. (JKY)

Spiritualized

Corn Exchange Tues 6th

Can there be another band so perfectly embodied by their frontman as Jason Pierce’s Spiritualized? With all the ‘highs’ and lows of the group’s aural assault, catching them live is something akin to a religious experience, at once contemplative, joyous and redemption seeking. When they’re loud, they’re very loud, and when they’re quiet, you can hear a pin drop. Expect blues, soul searching and an honesty still lacking anywhere else in rock. (JKY)

Mystery Jets

source tickets

Concorde 2 Weds 7th

Surprisingly, the last time Eel Pie indie rockers Mystery Jets set up stage on Madeira Drive, it wasn’t under the roof of the Concorde 2. Instead, during the Great Escape Festival, they played outside the venue – in a van. Their appearance on the Bands In Transit web series hasn’t been their only odd Brighton

show - they’ve also previously gigged on the pier – but now they bow to convention. Don’t expect this night to be ordinary though, Mystery Jets just don’t need the gimmicks to entertain. (AJM)

Savages

Paganini Ballroom Thurs 8th

source tickets

The Old Ship Hotel’s lavishly carpeted and chandeliered ballroom seems an unusual venue for a post-punk band, but Savages (who played their first live gig less than a year ago, here in Brighton) can probably touch its distant ceiling, so highly have the music press hyped them up. Singer Jehnny Beth channels the spirit of Ian Curtis above a high-octane clatter of swirling riffs and hi-hat that justifies the media acclaim. This venue may date from 1750, but tonight we’re going to party like it’s 1979. (AP)

Ian McCulloch Concorde 2 Thurs 8th

source tickets

It’s a bit of a dream team at tonight’s return of the Mac, assuming you’ve a particular fondness for post-punk Scouse pop stars called Ian. McCulloch, of course, became an alternative icon as luscious frontman of Echo & The Bunnymen – a role he continues to fill alongside an ongoing solo career. He’s joined on guitar here by Ian Broudie: founder of The Lightning Seeds and producer of the Bunnymen’s classic ‘Crocodiles’ and ‘Porcupine’ LPs. We’re not gambling on a ‘Lips Like Sugar Coated Iceberg’ medley though. (SH)

Blood On The Dancefloor Coalition Fri 9th

Banish thoughts of that nice Sophie Ellis-Bextor from your mind, Florida’s Blood On The Dancefloor are a far more outlandish pop proposition. The bastard offspring of My Chemical Romance and Sigue Sigue Sputnik, BOTD’s high glam, electro-rock hybrid has seen them go down a storm in the States, with big Billboard and Beatport hits and a graduation to the main stage for this year’s Vans Warped Tour. It’s new romantic sorcery for the Skrillex generation, and they’ve come for our kids. (SH)

The Dreaming Spires Palmeira Fri 9th

Arbouretum

source tickets

Prince Albert Sun 11th

A night of UK Americana comes to The Palmeira, headlined by the nation’s frontrunners of country tinged power-pop The Dreaming Spires. Think of Big Star, Gram Parsons,Teenage Fanclub their ilk and you’ll be mighty close to the sound of the Spires, which has won them plenty of praise and radio play from the likes of Steve Lamacq and co. on BBC 6 Music. Also on the bill is Danny George Wilson, frontman of Danny & The Champions of the World. (IC)

From Baltimore USA, Thrill Jockey’s masters of Americanapsych-folk return to town ahead of the release of their new album ‘Coming Out Of The Fog’. Arbouretum’s sound is a hazy and melodic mix of the likes of Crazy Horse, Wooden Shjips and Richard Thompson (Bearded Magazine describe them as sounding like “Neil Young and Wooden Shjips jamming over a bottle of fine sipping whiskey”). Support comes from a rare performance by Brighton locals Salter Cane. (IC)

Clock Opera

source tickets

Green Door Store Fri 9th

source tickets

This young South London solo artist may have produced one of the albums of 2012 with his debut ‘Ark’, which arrived in October on the No Pain In Pop label. The album’s title is apt, as his range of ambitions includes ecclesiastical choirs, expansive minimalism and late-night electronica, all washed together in floods of atmosphere. Sam Howard takes his singing monks underwater in a pressurised submarine of sound, pushing boundaries that have seen him hailed as a “new Thom Yorke”. Melancholic symphonies just found a new conductor. (TR)

The D.O.T.

Haunt Sat 10th

source tickets

When Mike Skinner disbanded The Streets last year, an infinite number of monkeys would’ve struggled to second-guess his next collaborator. Rob Harvey had been frontman of Leeds psych revivalists The Music, whose brief reign as the next Stone Roses had faded from the memories of all but the hardcore. Together, Skinner and Harvey have produced The D.O.T.’s debut ‘And That’, a curious, state of the nation mash up of anthemic beats and wired ballads. However unexpected, it’s a rewarding team up. (SH)

Page 12

Haunt Mon 12th

source tickets

Considering it took a couple of years for Clock Opera to travel from their initial online buzz to eventual debut album, its final release wasn’t greeted with the sales and recognition once expected. It may well be a lesson in how not to control your album’s release cycle, but those who have heard it should know how impressive Guy Connelly is as a songwriter. The album’s consistent, heartfelt, kitchen-sink-and-all approach to alternative pop is remarkable, and when performed live you realise it was worth the wait. (TR)

Lucy Rose

Coalition Mon 12th

source tickets

Her regular guest vocals for Bombay Bicycle Club have helped Lucy Rose gain a well deserved following for her solo career. Seen at The Great Escape the past couple of years, her debut album ‘Like I Used To’ came out in September. Rose’s blissed out folk music has been compared to the likes of Laura Marling and Regina Spektor but is unique in the way it takes sombre subjects and turns them into something which leaves you feeling mellow and ready for bed. PJs are optional. (MS)

The Long Goodbye Hope Fri 16th

Most of the week, Alfie Bernardi can be found propping up the counter, or propped up by it, at his music shop on Trafalgar Street. He’s also managed to find the time to record ‘Fractures’, the third album by his country-folk band The Long Goodbye, which launches tonight at The Hope. With pedal steel, blues harmonica and as many guitars as they can lay their hands on, the group’s sound is in the golden lineage of idols Crazy Horse, The Byrds and The Band. (SH)

Milk Maid

Blind Tiger Fri 16th

Martin Cohen honed his musical skills as bassist for Manc rockers Nine Black Alps, before unveiling his own strong songwriting talent last year on Milk Maid’s debut Fat Cat LP ‘Yucca’. A home recorded take on the UK fuzz rock of the Jesus & Mary Chain and Swervedriver, Cohen rapidly pulled a full band together and fired out an even stronger follow up with this summer’s ‘Mostly No’, a howling set of overdriven surf music with the guitars up full. (SH)

Neil Halstead

Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar Sun 18th

Archetypal Thames Valley shoegazers Slowdive were beset by some vicious press treatment in their time (the Manics’ Nicky Wire famously claimed to hate them more than Hitler), but behind those soft voices and sensitive fringes must have lain serious survivor instincts. Comically bad label decisions helped sink Slowdive, but frontman Neil Halstead and his bandmates soldiered on regardless. With his country influenced outfit Mojave 3 on hold again, Halstead released his third, folk tinged solo set ‘Palindrome Hunches’ in September. (SH)

Bitter Ruin

Ranelagh Tues 20th

The recent addition of a cellist means we’re going to have to get used to referring to Bitter Ruin as a band rather than duo, although the focus remains the battling vocal theatrics and intense cabaret sensibilities of the couple up front. They’re about to embark on their highest profile dates yet, supporting Ben Folds Five on a tour that includes two nights at the 5,000 capacity Brixton Academy, a far cry from the tiny blues bar hosting this free pre-tour warm up. (AP)

Chad Valley/Trophy Wife Prince Albert Weds 21st

source tickets

With both these artists heavily involved in Oxford’s creative collective Blessing Force, which showcases art, performances and lots of new music in alternative spaces, this should be a gig that feels like one city visiting another. As if to show off the broad spectrum of output from their exciting scene, we get the white soul electronica of Chad Valley and the upbeat, tropical indie pop of Trophy Wife on an appetizing double bill. With those on offer, Oxford’s welcome down to Brighton any time. (TR)

Ghosting Season /Olugbenga Green Door Store Weds 21st

source tickets

Mancunian duo Ghosting Season are known for their creative and foreboding mixture of rock guitars and eerie techno. Their progressive 12’’ release ‘A Muffled Sound Of Voices’ travels through witch house and into more sinister territory. As Metronomy’s bassist, Olugbenga’s played in Brighton repeatedly and DJ’d extensively too, but this co-headline show is the debut of his own live material. With a love of bass and a talent for merging left field electronica sounds with jazz influences, 2013 is set to become the year Olugbenga breaks through. (JMM)

Purity Ring

Haunt Thurs 22nd

source tickets

The Toronto duo return to Brighton following the summer release of their debut album ‘Shrines’, which successfully draws a line between Ariel Pink, Braids and The Knife. It maintains a strong 2012 feel, although that may well be because every music blog commentator worth their digitalised salt hasn’t shut up about it all year. Its consistent set of 11 songs has been accused of repetition, but when performed live the 808 fizz and the pulsing basslines suit the loud volumes an amplified gig can bring. (TR)

The Lovely Eggs Blind Tiger Fri 23rd

Seemingly on a mission to play every venue in Brighton, constantly touring couple The Lovely Eggs are driving back down from Lancaster for their umpteenth show in town. Live, it’s the louder and funnier the better, with guitar hero Holly and mop-topped drummer David’s rambling anecdotes frequently outlasting their furiously short and sweary songs. Recent collaborations with Gruff Rhys and Tjinger Singh suggest the cult favourites may at last be making a well deserved breakthrough. (SH)

Rubylux

Thanks to their successful street gigs, Rubylux are often described as ‘professional buskers’. In contrast to Brighton’s other notable outdoor performers, such as the pan pipe player and that waistcoated fire juggler, this band offer something a little more appealing and a lot less awkward. While most people cross roads to avoid amateur artists, Rubylux always draw in a crowd. If you haven’t seen them in the street and want to find out what the fuss is about, don’t miss this gig. (AJM)

Gallon Drunk Green Door Store Tues 27th

For much of the early 90s, Gallon Drunk were as widely known for being out on the town – usually in Camden, often with PJ Harvey in tow – as for their music. Their press profile may be more slender these days but live performances are always an intense, cathartic affair. Now a trio following the tragic death last year of bassist Simon Wring, Gallon Drunk’s brand of gothic gumbo stirs sinister lyrics into sleazy swamp rock. Fittingly, new album ‘The Road Gets Darker From Here’ is their darkest yet. (AP)

Peter Hook & The Light Concorde 2 Weds 28th

source tickets

In town performing the whole of Joy Division’s ‘Unknown Pleasures’, Peter Hook - a frequent visitor to our live scene raised eyebrows with his decision to tour his first band’s debut with no other original members. But put politics aside and treat the evening as a celebration of the post-punk milestone he was integral to some 32 years previous and you shouldn’t leave disappointed. The same probably cannot be said of messrs. Sumner and Morris though. (JKY)

Rodriguez

Most people who have seen Searching For Sugar Man have flipped over the enigmatic lost legend Rodriguez, his amazing music and heart-warming story. It doesn’t matter that the filmmakers didn’t mention the earlier comeback shows, the documentary is a great testament to the sage-like troubadour and, having sold out four London dates, it looks like Sixto Rodriguez’s day has finally come. Every song on his 1970 debut Cold Fact is a lost gem and this is a rare opportunity to witness a truly inspirational performer. (SC)

gig previews

Brighton Centre Fri 30th

Between 1987 and 1989 the Mondays played Brighton four times but haven’t ventured down since, save for a tiny 2007 gig in Horatio’s. Tonight the classic line-up returns, larger than life and larger than they were, complete with Bez, Rowetta and inimitable E poet Shaun Ryder, who’s undergone something of a makeover since going into the I’m A Celebrity jungle. Support comes from 808 State, and the cavernous Brighton Centre may well provide the perfect location for a late 80s rave flashback or two, but these days there are curfews. Nevertheless: sorted, top one, etc. (JKY)

The Miserable Rich Dome Studio Fri 30th

source tickets

It’s a bittersweet night at SOURCE New Music this month, as Brighton favourites The Miserable Rich play what will be, for the time being at least, their farewell show. Stemming from multi-limbed folk collective Shoreline, The Miserable Rich recorded a series of bright, chamber pop albums interspersed with some inspired, string driven covers, from Pixies to Hot Chip. With founding cellist Will Calderbank off on a new bout of touring with Mumford & Sons, the band take an indefinite break after tonight. (SH)

The Mojo Fins

Old Market Fri 30th

This year’s ‘The Spirit’ EP was the most luminous release yet from Brighton’s master songcrafters The Mojo Fins, its soft guitar lines weaving an intricate, softly hypnotic web. In an early spirit of Christmas generosity, a cut of tonight’s ticket price will be donated to the Shelter and Rise charities. Also doing their bit at this evening’s show are the haunting, twisted orchestra of songwriter Shona Foster and gypsy folk band Apples And Eve. (SH)

Brought Back Down To Earth For Her New Album Words By James Kendall

soUrCe tICKets

online at www.brightonsource.co.uk


For her third album ‘The Haunted Man’ Natasha Khan has stripped back her sound and her look to expose more of herself than ever. But it’s not been an easy process. Writer’s block took her to the edge of walking away from music, but courses at Brighton University and gardening at Charleston House gave her a new headspace to be creative again. It’s a more mature album from an artist who is ready to settle down. You’ve said that it’s quite an English album. How so? It was mainly about me deciding to stay put and live in England for most of the process of making it. It was borne out of wanting to put down my roots; walking around the Sussex Downs, going to the sea and really immersing myself in being in England. I started to do quite a lot of research on my English family and the history of England, looked at things that happened in our history that are affecting us still, like the war. I just really enjoyed not being in America! Coming home and falling back in love with England.

beautiful happening and the rest of it is being stuck in this mire trying to make sense of the confusion. What is it that you love about working with Beck? He wasn’t someone that I’d have specifically chosen, but because he approached me for the Twilight song and it ended up being so much fun, I thought that he’d be a fantastic person to bounce ideas off and jam with and try out different instruments. I really like his openness. He’s very eclectic in his tastes and he’s got a fantastic knowledge of music and a great art background, which is something that’s important to me as well. I liked his set up where he had his studio at home with his family and it’s a very balanced existence. It was a home away from home and quite grounding and good for me when I was in the midst of making this record. You’ve collaborated in your songwriting for the first time on ‘Laura’. Was that a difficult decision to make? It was quite hard. I think I’ve always been quite snobbish about it in the past but I wanted to see what it was like to work with someone that would push me a little bit in a direction, and teach me something that I didn’t know already. I feel that it was really nice to be collaborating with Justin [Parker, who has also worked with Lana Del Rey]. I had a brief. I wanted to write a piano song that was harkening back to those old 70s ballads, with a middle eight and traditional structure. But I always like to put my own angle on it, so the dark subject matter or whatever came through. And together we navigated it and came up with something that still sounded very much like me. I think it turned out really well. I’m happy with that song.

“it was a difficult process with some moments of clarity”

It feels like you’ve opened yourself up a lot more for this album. Is that accurate? Yeah, I think so. The vocal is much more present, I’ve stripped away a lot of the reverb and layers and denseness. I’ve returned to the sparseness of the first album in a way, but it’s bolder. The woman has reappeared from behind the little girl that started off my career. I feel like I’ve matured and in that maturing process I feel more confident about being more intimate with my listeners, just being more direct and honest and up front. It’s definitely more stripped back and more raw, and real, in a way. I’m not hiding so much.

And that seems to carry over to your image. The make up is much less bold, much less of a costume. More you. I think that too. I just got bored. I don’t want to repeat myself and after years of exploring that theatricality, the visual symbols and totems and colours and glitter and feathers and beautiful adornments – which I have really enjoyed – I felt like I can’t keep doing that because it doesn’t feel right. What feels true at the moment is to be stripped back and natural. I think there’ll still be theatricality to the live show because I enjoy that aspect and I think live shows should have that. But it’s more Natasha now, rather than a visual representation of a character. From what you’ve said about it the album sounds like it was tough to make. Did you enjoy it in the end or was it hard all the way through? I think it was an ongoing, difficult process with some moments of clarity and happiness punctuating it. But, because it took two and a half years to make, obviously I went through lots of different types of feelings. I think it was more of a marathon – I was in it for the long haul. What were the points that gave you the energy to push through it? Probably writing ‘Lilies’ on my sofa at home with my autoharp on my lap. That was a good moment. It came out really quickly and I felt like the sentiment was really interesting, and the theme of the song started to help define what the album was going to be about. There are lots of moments like that – recording with a male choir for ‘The Haunted Man’, when I went to visit Beck and he played crazy guitars on ‘Marilyn’. There’s moments where you feel there’s something really

Do you think you’ll collaborate on songwriting again? It sounds like a positive experience. It was, but the whole emotional situation around that was quite challenging. There was a bit of a wrangle with the record company wanting me to write singles. I’m not sure how I’d feel about doing it again. I wouldn’t say it was the most comfortable situation I’ve been in but I think I made the best of something that was quite challenging. It turned out fine and it was lucky that it did. I’d have to wait and see what my reasons were for doing it again. Do you feel that you’ve made a path through the writer’s block that you suffered on this album for the future, or does that still worry you? I think that every time you get through an album, it’s almost like when women go through childbirth. The pain of it is so intense but once you have your beautiful baby nature makes you forget. Now that it’s done the memory of how difficult it was is fading and I’ve just got this beautiful thing that I’ve made. I think each time you start again it’s as intense. I think I’ve matured enough to realise that travelling all over the world and having tumultuous relationships and being sad doesn’t really help.

DJ Vadim

Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar Thurs 1st

Russian ex-pat DJ Vadim made his name in the early 90s, when the catatonically druggy beats of his Jazz Fudge label coincided with the earliest stirrings of what would soon be tagged trip hop. A true internationalist, Vadim’s carved out an enviable DJ career, fitted around numerous releases for the likes of Ninja Tune. Tonight’s live show shakes up the tempo, with Vadim and friends promoting his bouncing, upbeat new album ‘Don’t Be Scared’. (SH)

Rockwell & SpectraSoul Audio Fri 2nd

A minimal sound that prioritises technical precision over big room, chart friendly tunes has established Rockwell as a DJ’s DJ and garnered him many an admirer from behind and in front of the turntables. He’s joined by local legends and labelmates SpectraSoul, whose critically praised debut ‘Delay No More’ proved they can produce a deeply meditative album that takes the listener on a sonic voyage as well as turn out banging singles that never fail to get hands in the air.

Mid-Week Mashup

International indie club institution Propaganda has added Brighton to its portfolio, taking over Thursday nights at The Honey. From small roots at the University Of Bristol, Propaganda now runs over 20 nights a week globally, from the UK to Australia, with big hitting celebrity DJs from the entertainment world and regular live mini-tours. Fingers crossed for some surprise guests reaching Brighton soon then. The same team also run sister night Ramshackle at Lola Lo on Mondays. (SH)

The last time we saw Vitalic it was at a midweek show in Coalition. Before he arrived the place was calm but at 8.30pm he took to the stage and the crowd – of mainly 30-somethings – went completely ballistic and stayed that way. After an hour or so of his noisy, grinding electro-tech, he knocked it on the head and everyone calmly left. It was really something. So imagine what he could do on a Friday night at a properly late hour. We reckon people are going to need carrying out. It’s a great start to the Concorde’s new Applesauce night. (JK)

Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar Tues 6th

If you like your Tuesdays late and your house music rough and fun, try this. Planet Mu’s Ital is headlining a two-floor takeover at Sticky Mike’s, with DJs in the bar for free, and a club night downstairs with live A/V show. Ital’s album ‘Hive Mind’ is a buzzing, beatdriven release, eschewing the typical house samples in favour of domineering rhythms, indistinct conversations, interesting arrangements and an underlying spookiness. Brighton’s CMJ and Grinel are amongst the support acts, promising undiscovered disco delights and fresh tracks from their record collections. (JMM)

Basement Club Weds 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th

Now that everyone’s back at uni, the Basement Club has launched their new, student-friendly Wednesday night, Mid-Week Mashup. Basement resident DJ Lee Harris mixes chart, pop and party anthems on the decks. They’re offering plenty of cheap drinks promos and, by joining the Legends Brighton group on Facebook, the chance to win a £100 bar bill, which has gotta be worth a click. Club entry includes access to the famed LGBT hangout Legends Bar upstairs, which is always open late for socialising in various states of sobriety. (SH)

Concorde 2 Thurs 8th

Up until about five seconds before we went to press this show was happening in Eastbourne. But come on, we deserved it much more than those guys. When they played in Digital we took the roof off. Since then Diplo has been on a bit of a roll – being sampled by Beyonce and producing Snoop Dogg/Lion’s LP. Switch meanwhile has produced MIA’s ‘Bad Girls’ and something for Ke$ha we never listened to. The pair will have just released their own new album to draw from, ‘Free The Universe’, and will bring Chicago juke duo Flosstradamus in support who are always insane fun. (JK)

Life Fri 9th

The strength of the UK’s bass music scene is directly reflected in the amount of new nights celebrating the divergent genre. This Friday welcomes the launch of Basslaced Brighton, kicking off with UK garage frontman DJ EZ alongside newer poster boy Breakage – a brilliantly contrasting combination. EZ should bring the old school nostalgia inherent in the Pure Garage compilation CDs he mixed way back when, and Breakage can rep the more recent future garage side of things. (ZC)

Thoroughly English lo-fi electronic artist Nathan Fake has been making unique and understated tracks for nearly a decade and his slow-building tunes are thought-provoking, inspiring and unobtrusive. Latest album ‘Steam Days’ draws further on his trademark sad themes, creating careful and melancholy electronica that will delight fans of Four Tet and Amon Tobin. It’s music to peacefully contemplate more than to dance to, but if that’s your bag you’ll have a great time. (JMM)

Medlar & Manni Dee Green Door Store Fri 9th

It’s a bit of a Hit And Hope showcase this month at Below The Line, with Medlar and Manni Dee heading a line-up that draws heavily from the Brighton record label’s back catalogue. Label boss Ned Peglar’s Medlar is the moniker for his pure house music tracks, whilst Manni Dee’s latest EP release with Deft is a high-tempo, juke-influenced banger, and his multi-genre remixes are always great fun. Also representing are Unlikely and Dom, plus resident DJs. (JMM)

Disclosure

Digital Sat 10th

It was their remix of Jessie Ware’s ‘Running’ that really catapulted the Croydon brothers into the mainstream and now they’re rightfully dominating the electronic scene. Tracks like ‘Flow’ and ‘Tenderly’ also use the dubstep and 2-step elements inherent in their hometown sound as a foundation on which to build their more diverse jazz and hip hop influences. No doubt this is why soulful vocals feature regularly and work so damn well. House supremo Huxley supports with Bicep and your generous hosts the Blah Blah Blah DJs. (ZC)

Jessie Ware and Disclosure in the same month? If only they were performing together. No, that’s greedy, and Jessie Ware deserves her own stage. Rising from the Rinse FM ranks she was soon featuring on tracks by SBTRKT and Joker before releasing her awesome debut album ‘Devotion’ in August this year. The record was an effortless fusion of electronic pop music, soulful vocals and arresting lyrics and we know for a fact she has the sort of sultry voice that sounds even better live. (ZC)

Rudimental

Life Weds 14th

New York Transit Authority is another of those producers booked by Below The Line that only the achingly up-to-date will have heard of yet, so here’s a crib sheet: you’ve probably heard of him producing as Mensah; his FACT magazine mix back in March was a strippedback, smooth house masterpiece; he’s a big fan of the 808; and his tune ‘Off The Traxx’ will have Life’s dancefloor pounding. Don’t say we never help you out. (JMM)

Concorde 2 Fri 16th

It’s just as well all the Concorde’s rooms are open for this, because the line-up’s gigantic. Top Brighton promoters Resonance have been keeping quiet lately and now we know why – they’ve been planning one of the biggest jungle, dancehall and reggae nights of the year. Influential ragga MC Top Cat heads an extensive bill, which includes Serial Killaz ft MC Spyda, Aries and Serum & Bladerunner. The Run Tingz Cru have Solo Banton and Blackout J.A. as special guests, and in room two Dagger Sound System’s selections will be keeping the temperature up. (JMM)

In The Face

Volks Sat 17th

In The Face are going from strength to strength, carving out a nice slice of the clubbing market with their bombastic brand of bassline, and now they’re launching their own record label. This evening celebrates the latter success, with Kanji Kinetic headlining, who’s also behind their first release. His rave fuelled take on the sound draws heavily on jungle and house influences, as well as the Brooklyn scene where the genre’s flourishing. In support are Krissy B, Heapy and Audiogutter. (ZC)

If you don’t have the stamina for the full shebang, tickets are available separately for the gig and after party. (JMM)

Digital Thurs 22nd

It was impossible not to ‘Feel The Love’; Rudimental’s chart-topping tune wasn’t just everywhere – national radio, adverts, the Olympics – but it was also a fantastically joyous record. The intro, with those aquatic keys that sounded like someone playing an organ underwater, then the deep bass, ominously rumbling until John Newman’s sing-along vocals broke out and victorious brass trumpeted over the top, all made for a celebratory sound which refused to be ignored. No doubt this will be a top night of feel good d’n’b. (ZC)

Mak & Pasteman

Life Fri 23rd

Leeds production duo Mak & Pasteman have been putting out remixes for a while and their EP ‘Do The Same’ was released in April to near universal approval. Their style relies on mixed up future garage, soulful vocal snatches and a deep house beats, making for a sound that’s oddly familiar yet undeniably modern. Also on the line-up is Trevino, the house music alias of drum’n’bass hero Marcus Intalex, whose new direction has resulted in lively, techno-fused club hits. There are other secret acts still to be confirmed, so keep an eye out online too. (JMM)

With a title that shows he’s got a healthy amount of self-awareness and doesn’t take himself too seriously, the album makes evident why MC DRS can make light hearted jibes at his profession – his vocal skills are undeniable and superior to many of his peers. This will be a night of chilled, forward thinking drum’n’bass and well-considered rhymes, of which there just aren’t enough. (ZC)

New night on the block (well, seafront) Union isn’t resting on its laurels. Keeping things fresh and proving they can romp with the more established electronic nights, they’ve booked AlunaGeorge and The 2 Bears. The latter duo play rave-happy dad house and demonstrate that the more mature clubbers don’t always dance like your old man at a wedding. AlunaGeorge are the chilled glitch duo responsible for that infectious smash ‘Your Drums, Your Love’, whose eponymous sample is slightly drawn out so it sounds delectable and stays in your head for days.

Some frustrating delays took the wind out of their sails but we’re pleased to say the place is properly firing now.

Self-proclaimed “Balkan bad boys” Boris and Sergey are likely to be the most memorable vaudevillian duo you’ll ever see emerge from eastern Europe, and spoof German ambassador Henning Wehn will be warming up for his Christmas shows in London with carols along the lines of ‘Oh Tennenbaum’. (BM)

Theatre: Touching Bodies Nightingale Theatre Sun 11th

Based at the Crawley tower of thespianism that is the Hawth, community theatre company Pitchy Breath have a history stretching back 17 years, staging texts ancient and modern. Paul Macauley’s new play Touching Bodies is a tale of hidden lives, isolation, betrayal, love and brushes with the law, stopping off at the Nightingale for one night only on a short, catch-it-while-you-can tour. There’s every chance they’ll be the finest export from Crawley to get beyond the station this year. (BM)

Comedy: Frankie Boyle Dome Fri 16th – Sat 17th

Frankie Boyle’s £50k libel win over the Daily Mirror last month, after the paper falsely described him as racist, served to underline how divisive his pushing of comic taboos is. Boyle’s appearances on Mock The Week, while often shockingly tasteless, were the clear highlight of the shows, but his subsequent Tramadol Nights series misfired badly. He’s avowedly left wing, yet writes columns for The Sun, making him equally loved, reviled and misunderstood. This ‘Last Days Of Sodom’ show could be a heavy couple of nights. (SH)

Theatre: The Dressing Book Nightingale Theatre Mon 19th

For critics who’ve seen its best manifestations, the words commedia dell’arte are excitingly pretentious, hinting at the possibilities of brilliant acting through subtle physicality and improvisation. The form can also signpost disaster when done badly. But in the hands of The Rude Mechanical Theatre Company, who’ve been whittling the convoluted art down to a deceptively simple-looking premise for at least a decade, it’s safe. Social conventions and tyrannical husbands get the works in this comedy helped by the V&A. (BM)

Comedy: John Shuttleworth Theatre Royal Tues 20th

Like fellow northern wordsmith John Cooper Clarke, John Shuttleworth creator Graham Fellows made his musical debut on original Manc punk indie Rabid Records, with the timeless novelty single ‘Jilted John’. It’s as Sheffield everyman Shuttleworth that Fellows has achieved his greatest success, his short sighted pop ambitions and domestic travails sustaining the character across a brace of radio and television series, Yorkshire Tea ads and theatre tours. He’s Alan Bennett with a Yamaha keyboard. (SH)

Theatre: The Vagina Monologues Theatre Royal Thurs 22nd

In Brighton for one night only, Eve Ensler’s controversial Vagina Monologues are bound to get people talking. Not just comediennes trying to get a cheap laugh from ranting about their bathroom habits, the monologues deal with a variety of serious and universal women’s issues. This show will probably twist your brain until you have no idea what a vagina is any more. (TT)

Talk: BUG Radiohead Dome Thurs 22nd

Adam Buxton’s salute to the art of music video returns to Brighton for a celebration of Oxford’s globe conquering miserablists Radiohead. Whether you’re a fan or not, the band have unarguably produced some classic videos in their time, lending themselves to Friends-esque descriptions like The One With The Man Lying Down and The One With The Goldfish Bowl. Buxton supplies context, commentary and comedy, probably along the lines of his Bug TV show which, being on Sky, we haven’t seen, obviously. (SH)

Event: Art Junky 10 Phoenix Gallery Sat 24th & Sun 25th

The tenth Art Junky event is the perfect place to snoop around for oneoff Christmas gifts, or, if you prefer, to satisfy your own shopaholic tendencies. The gallery will be filled to bursting with stalls of clothes, crafts and knick-knackery, music courtesy of resident DJs and a pop-up cafe offering mulled wine and other winter goodies. For just a quid entry, why trail around in the rain when you can get everything you need for Christmas under one roof? (TT)

Dance: Jasmin VardiMon Company Dome Tues 27th

If you like physical theatre you’re spoilt for choice this month, as those multi-award winning, tutu-wearing boundless prancers from the impish, Sadler’s Wells associated Jasmin Vardimon Company return to the Dome. Watching them do their freakishly agile thing could convince you you’re a ballerina too. Take your shoes off and run outside, convinced the tables outside the Mash Tun are mere props in the fleet-footed, nimble-limbed production that is your life. Trip, order a pint, move on clumsily.

CREATE IN BRIGHTON Photo By James Kendall

There are worse things to have in your pocket than £1000 – an angry rattlesnake for example. That would make getting your keys out tricky and the rattling would get annoying. So let’s concentrate on getting a grand in your pocket instead. First thing you need is Instagram. That’s the hard part (at least paying the smartphone tariff is), then all you need to do is upload a photo on the theme of ‘the musical hidden depths of Brighton’. Tag it with #hiddendepthsbrighton and you’re done. Then just think what to spend the money on. Ah, but there’s one thing in your way to reckless consumerism. The entries will be judged by our editor James Kendall and SOURCE Street Style photographer Kevin Meredith. They both have exhibitions running at the Photo Fringe – the former at The Hope and the latter at The Old Market – so ought to know what they’re looking for. Just make your photo really good. It’s all thanks to Create In Brighton and Tiger Beer, who you might remember from giving Matt C Stokes £1000 for his ‘Know The Not Known’ illustration. Again they’ll be putting an ace free party on at the Coalition for the winner and ten finalists, and anyone else who wants to come. This time Simian Mobile Disco will be playing their storming electro live. That’s on 18th November while the submission deadline is Friday 16th. See createinbrighton.co.uk for full info about the competition.

Locally sourced Words By Stuart Huggett, Jessica Marshall McHattie

Single: Abi Wade

Album/DVD: Fatboy Slim

Local cello maestro Abi Wade is off on tour with Patrick Wolf and has released this 7’’ in anticipation. Both sides are already toe-tapping favourites from her live sets and lose none of their honest charm when recorded. ‘Heavy Heart’ features Wade’s soaring, intimate folk vocals and her characteristic, unique cello tapping. Breathy harmonies enhance the genuine and soulful sound; this is Wade at her reproachful best. B-side ‘Faker’ is a sultry, proud tale which will resonate in your mind for days. (JMM)

As Brighton as a seagull shitting on your chips, Fatboy’s a local institution and his beach parties have provided some of the city’s most legendary nights out. This release covers the fifth Beach Bootique, actually held inland at the Amex Stadium earlier this year. The DVD set is a must-have for everyone who was there, with a CD mix from the night, featuring all the tracks played, and a full length film to bring back – or help recover – those memories. A bumper box set edition throws in even more memorabilia. (JMM)

‘Heavy Heart’ (Love Thy Neighbour)

‘Big Beach Bootique 5’ (Southern Fried)

Album: Puncture Kit

Album: Martin Rossiter

You may well have spotted Puncture Kit’s David Osborne busking around Brighton: he’s the fellow who fires off pummelling percussion workouts on his upended cycle-cumdrum kit. A whole album of deep drumming on the modified bike is a pretty specific listen, but Osborne and studio partner Castro’s d’n’b sensibilities feed deceptive pans, tweaks and dubs into the mix, making stretches of ‘The Bicycle Drummer’ work effectively as stripped down, beat heavy techno. Unexpectedly diverse and undeniably unique. (SH)

Eight long years since Gene bowed out, singer Martin Rossiter returns with this exceptional solo debut. Rossiter’s occasional shows here in his adopted Brighton home have been impressive, torch song affairs of just piano and voice, and ‘The Defenestration Of St Martin’ continues this stripped back approach. Opening the album, the 10-minute title track features a devastating vocal and is up there with Rossiter’s finest Gene songs. The remaining songs are more succinct, but no less affecting. (SH)

‘The Bicycle Drummer’ (puncturekit.bandcamp.com)

‘The Defenestration Of St Martin’ (Drop Anchor)

EP: King Dinosaur

Album: White Star Liners

Young Brighton-based producer King Dinosaur’s first release shows a maturity beyond his years, with swirling synths, calm melodies and restrained bass. ‘Frequency Of The Atmosphere’ is a mysterious, tense beast and the Ambassadeurs remix of ‘The Night’ is an inspired, cut-up take on the original that transforms it into something deeply foreboding. The only criticism is that the vocals, though heavenly and light, are a bit too slick: the frequent harmonising is distracting and can sound a little bit boy band. (JMM)

White Star Liners second full length is a confident set of smart alt-rock tunes, rich with the guitar pop sensibilities of Ash and The New Pornographers. Having scored some summer supports with reformed heroes Grandaddy, the latter’s Jason Lytle guests very briefly here, adding to a cast of backing vocalists that includes Marina Tiffeny of Numbskull labelmates Sparrow and Cat Bear Tree’s Zoe Konez. Nods to Blur’s brassy Britpop peak and the synthetic grandeur of ELO add to the crossover appeal. (SH)

Album: King Porter Stomp

Single: Jennifer Left

Album: Devilman

Single: Native Roses

‘Shuffle’ (Comm:UNITY)

Partly recorded live in the analogue warmth of Liam Watson’s famous Toe Rag Studios, big band King Porter Stomp’s second album is an exuberant blend of upbeat ska, funk and hip hop workouts. The bass burrows deep beneath the sunshine brass, while guests including MC Elemental and The Resonators’ Faye Houston add extra voice to the band’s socially conscious barnstorming. Rapid, infectious current single ‘The Last Bat Train To Cuba’ comes with a storming d’n’b mix by JFB too. (SH)

‘Devilman’ (Small But Hard)

Devilman’s terrific debut album is a three-way collaboration between Bo Ningen’s Taigen Kawabe, Dokkebi Q’s Gorgonn and our old friend Shige Ishihara (DJ Scotch Egg). In the guise of Mr D, Ishihara carves out subsonic dub basslines, tolling away beneath Gorgonn’s fearsome, sheet metal drum programming and Kawabe’s panic attack vocals. Titles like ‘Elephant Dub’ and ‘Noise Step’ indicate the heavy dancefloor hybrids within, until ‘Last Black Emperor’ burns the whole edifice to the ground. (SH)

Album: Dark Horses ‘Black Music’ (Last Gang)

It’s been a fascinating ride for Dark Horses, from Brighton’s back rooms to national acclaim; one they’ve trod carefully so as not to dispel the swirling mystique around them. This supremely cool debut gets the limited singles ‘Radio’ and ‘Alone’ out of the way early on, before delving deeper into the leather-clad electric grooves they’ve concocted with Death In Vegas’ Richard Fearless. Unnecessary Talking Heads cover aside, ‘Black Music’ exists in an erotic dreamscape all of its own. (SH)

Page 46

‘Diggory’ (Singing Hinny)

Following up her delightful, whistle-along debut ‘Black Dog’, Jennifer Left’s new single ups the toe-tapping jazz elements in its ode to the troubled fellow of its title. Deceptively jolly then, although we’ve never met a Diggory in our life. Fresh from his work on King Porter Stomp’s album, Ninja Tune’s Banks adds a glittering remix. Worth seeking out for the B-side too, a sun-dappled strum through New Order’s ‘Temptation’ which is much smarter and effective than you might imagine. (SH)

‘Shadows’ (Creek Music)

Soft-edged folk pop quartet Native Roses’ second single is a subtle piece of autumnal balladry. ‘Shadows’ swings in sweetly enough, with light acoustic strums and watercolour piano notes, although James Knaggs’ sorrowful singing keeps the mood downbeat. It all turns on the second chorus, however, as Jessica Illsley’s vocals breeze in, lifting Knaggs upwards, as a synth pulse arrives to rally the musicians too. Native Roses have a touch of Fleetwood Mac about them here, no bad thing in our book. (SH)

EP: Unicorn Power ‘Catface’ (Substream)

‘Guarded’, the lead track on Unicorn Power’s latest EP (and first for Swedish label Substream) is a fun and bouncy synthpop tune, delighting in squelching synths and much sweeping stereo horseplay. The Tony Tronic remix uproots it to New York circa 1983, throwing even more squirting electro-disco in the pot. The other three songs on the EP are a bit gloomier, with post-punk and gothic overtones among the keyboard love. A mixed bunch then, but there are solid tunes within. (SH)

Brighton Rockers LEADERS OF THE PACK Words By James Kendall

Photo By Kenny Mc Cracken Assisted By Matt Ring And Joshua Redfern

One of the most positive things to come out of the Olympic coverage was how much everyone enjoyed the women’s events. After years of being marginalised, finally women’s sport was being taken seriously. Buzzed by seeing Jessica Ennis and co rack up the golds, acres of press was devoted to how we wanted to see more women’s sport on TV. So what happened? Fuck all. Back to the status quo – men’s football, men’s rugby, men’s darts. Which is why it’s so brilliant to discover roller derby, a sport predominantly played – and certainly dominated — by women. It’s inspiring a whole wave of girls to get involved, not least in Brighton where we have one of the best teams in the country. Yeah, really. The Brighton Rockers might have only been in existence for a

couple of years but they’ve only lost one match out of 13, with an extremely respectable scoreline of 177-180 against the London Rollergirls, the team ranked third in Europe. To give you an idea of how impressive that is, the game was played behind closed doors with no audience as it wasn’t thought to be a fair match. Thanks to their performance our girls are now placed in the top ten teams in the continent. To get this good this quickly is amazing because it’s SO complicated. “I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who’s gone to their first game and hasn’t said, ‘It was amazing but I didn’t have a fucking clue what was going on,’” admits Hairy Fairy. Basically it goes something like this. There’s a jammer on each team that has to lap the pack of blockers. It’s the pack’s job to help their own jammer while slowing down the opposing

Vixen sagely. “It happens.” “We’ve had a few broken legs, four in fact, and many broken ribs, fingers and wrists,” says Rose Bleed counting on as yet un-shattered digits. In full flow roller derby looks pretty reckless, but actually everything is built in to make it as safe as possible. There are seven referees for a start. And it’s a penalty offence to take off any of your protective gear on the track, and most of it needs to remain even while you’re on the bench. There are very strict rules about how and where you can hit people. Those 40 pages are there precisely to make it safe. When we went to a training session we excitedly thought that we’d get a chance to play a game but as Mistress Von Uber Vixen patiently took us through some of the core skills – which mostly involved falling without knocking our teeth out – it became clear that not only would we get our arses kicked in seconds, we’d actually be a liability on the track. It was no surprise to find that you don’t get to play until you’ve nailed the basics. What was a surprise –as we tottered like Bambi on ice onto the track – was to see someone on the bench with a broken arm. Surely that had put her off, we asked naively. Not at all, she assured us, she was desperate to get skating again. The fact she was at practice with a broken limb gives you some idea of how hard the team members have been bitten by roller derby. For example Chariot Sophia, the girl at the front of our cover shot, broke her ankle and had to have pins in it. When the operation to have the pins removed clashed with match day she had the surgery delayed so she could play first. “That’s the kind of dedication we ask for,” says Hairy Fairy as they all laugh at the memory. “Even after training you come away with aches and pains. But I don’t think you ever expect to get properly hurt. We wouldn’t play it if we did.” As exciting as it is to find a women’s sport that’s getting so much attention what makes roller derby even more special is the wide range of women that make up the game, in age, background NEXT GAME: Vs Big Bucks High Rollers; GYSO and body shape.

Cinecity

Words By Nathaniel Forrester, Stuart Huggett

Cinecity, the Brighton Film Festival, gets underway this month for its 10th year of screenings, performances and exhibitions. Festival co-director Tim Brown talks us through Cinecity’s history in this month’s Unsung Hero interview, while here we pick out a few SOURCE recommendations.

Seven Psychopaths Duke Of York’s Thurs 15th

Cinecity’s opening night movie this year is Martin McDonagh’s follow up to his violent, Oscar nominated gangster comedy In Bruges. Once again, Colin Farrell takes the leading role, as a screenwriter getting out of his depth in the LA crime world, as a dognapping plan goes dangerously awry. Seven Psychopaths’ mouthwatering cast includes Christopher Walken, Harry Dean Stanton, Woody Harrelson and Tom Waits. If you suspect some of these may be among the titular psychopaths, you’d be right. (SH)

From The Sea To The Land Beyond Duke Of York’s Fri 16th

British Sea Power’s second full length soundtrack commission, after their successful re-scoring of 1934’s Man Of Aran, continues their marine interests. From The Sea To The Land Beyond is a collage of coastal footage from the British Film Institute archives, drawing on a century of film-making around these isles. Having performed the soundtrack live alongside the film around the country this year, from the BFI itself to the end of Bournemouth Pier, tonight is British Sea Power’s hometown’s turn. (SH)

The Paper Cinema’s Odyssey Dome Studio Weds 21st

Harking back to pre-cinema times of puppet shows and magic lanterns, The Paper Cinema present their lo-fi, high talent version of Homer’s Odyssey. Using cut outs, projections, live drawing and music, Odysseus’ epic voyage comes to life in unfolding layers of paper, card and light. You probably know how the adventure unfolds and the perils encountered (the Cyclops, the Sirens, Scylla and Charybdis and all), but the thrill of the tale is all in the telling. (SH)

Jukebox Fury – Zoom Lens Basement Fri 23rd

This month’s Jukebox Fury brings together live music, films, mixtapes and installations in an evening dedicated to the cinematic futurevisions of writer J.G. Ballard. Instead of David Cronenberg’s controversial adaptation of Ballard’s most famous novel, Crash, tonight offers the book’s little-seen precursor: an absorbing 1971 BBC film essay on the death drive urge, starring UFO’s Gabrielle Drake and Ballard himself, looping round the multi-storeys and wreckers’ yards of Watford. Cinecity patron and composer Barry Adamson picks a Ballardian playlist, and John Foxx presents a ‘film and sound seance’. (SH)

Cinecity’s music strand continues at The Basement all weekend, with a full programme of recent documentaries and features. Local interest highlights of the Pop Up Cinema include Art Will Save The World (Niall McCann’s mischievous portrait of misanthropic anti-Britpop hero Luke Haines), Last Shop Standing (a study of the decline of the independent record shop, given added poignancy by this summer’s closure of Rounder) and Nick Cave salute Do You Love Me Like I Love You.

SOURCE Readers’ Gig Charter Your Definitive List Of Gig-Going Crimes Is Ready For Discussion Words By James Kendall, SOURCE Readers Photos By James Kendall

A couple of months ago we found ourselves a little peeved by behaviour at some of the gigs we went to and so put out the idea of a Gig Charter. To say you took to the idea like a metaller to the moshpit is an understatement. Inconsiderate wankers have been ruining your special ‘moments’ for years and you spewed bile about people talking, taking photos and, well, spewing bile. So here’s your list of your worst offenders. Look out on Facebook soon for when we put all this to the vote and compile a finished document for your approval.

Talking

By far the biggest complaint that came back was people talking, especially through quiet gigs. Why do it?! Why pay a tenner to see a band and not listen to it? If someone asks you to be quiet, don’t you think that should be enough reason to pipe down? But a request for silence often leads to aggression. It takes a lot of balls to confront someone, so take that as a measure of how upset they are and go and finish your vital conversation about EastEnders at the bar. Matt Bassant of Audio told us about how he was so wound up by a group of five chatterers at The xx in his venue that he gave them their money back and asked them to leave. Fair play.

A newish gripe as before digital cameras – or more specifically camera phones – this wasn’t a problem. Kris Mitchell, like lots of you, gets frustrated by “people watching a gig through their phone as they record it rather than actually experiencing it.” But it’s not just that. If you have a phone in front of your face while someone is videoing their favourite song you might as well be sat at home watching on the world’s worst TV. The problem is, says Lisa Wormsley, “the results are normally rather shit”. As for taking pictures with iPads? Outright ban, you all seem to be demanding.

Groping

Yeah, that little grope you have in the moshpit, that’s not an opportunist bit of fun, it’s straight up sexual assault. And, yes, despite the fact it’s illegal, immoral and the behaviour of a scumbag, it happens all the time. It’s absolutely disgusting and any blokes doing it need to have a firm fucking word with themselves. “I’m surprised this still happens in this day and age”, says Jenny Jones. “How would they like it if it was their sister?” Exactly. And no ‘accidental’ grinding either, for fuck’s sake. If you see this, speak up. Let’s stamp it out.

Wayward Hair

A surprisingly popular one this, and one we hadn’t had much trouble with (except for SOURCE manager Rosie being engulfed head-to-waist in a dreadlock curtain after Primal Scream last year). “People dancing by flailing their long hair in everyone’s faces is rank,” says Stuart Adams. “Particularly those with unwashed dreads.” Yeah, that sounds nasty.

Anti-Dancing

As long as you keep your hair and limbs under control, dancing was generally seen as a good thing by SOURCE readers (“It should be compulsory at gigs in any part of the venue”, reckons Alison Taylor). The frustration was a Footloose-style shut down. “At an Elbow gig at The Dome I was moaned at for dancing”, says Tina Sutcliffe. “It’s a gig! You’re meant to have fun. If you wanna listen, go home and put yer headphones on. Leave us alone to have some fun.” Yeah, shut up grandad.

Snogging

The band are playing your ‘our tune’, emotions are high, you’re having a moment and the next thing you know you’re taken over with desire and are kissing your partner’s face off. That would all be fine if you weren’t six inches from five other people. It’s not an orgy, how about a bit of privacy? “No matter how close to the front I get, they’re always in front of me”, says Richard Julian Jones. “Get a room!”

Spilling Pints

It’s a constant surprise how great people are at carrying multiple pints across a pub, but a gig provides a fairly substantial extra challenge to your skills. “People who try to carry four pints through a dancing, unaware crowd are so annoying”, says our Reviews Editor Jess, while Riki Tik manager Jack Donald complains about “people that spill their pints on my shoes”. Milo Belgrove has a radical solution: only sell bottled beer. “Nobody’s hair goes in a bottle nor does it get spilt everywhere.” Indeed.

Throwing Cups Of Piss

This one is more festival ‘fun’ than Brighton-based but if you’ve ever done this we’d really like to sit you down and have a good chat about your moral compass. You’re throwing your piss. At people. And it’s worth remembering it’s real people up there, even if you don’t like the songs they’re playing.

Pushing To The Front

At worst this is actually dangerous, at best it’s a bit rude. If you’re that keen on the band then get get to the front a few minutes before they start. “I hate people who think the best way to the front is to barge forward without stopping, as aggressively as they can”, says David Middleton. But there’s a further offence. “Also, groups of people who insist on holding hands when going to the bar or closer to the front”, reckons Robert Buckingham. “Gigs are not primary school outings.”

Page 53


Attention Seeking

This isn’t audience participation, you don’t get to choose the setlist, no matter how many times you shout for a song. “I hate obnoxious audience members who try to draw as much attention to themselves as possible,” adds Loz Reading, “particularly by overtly violent and aggressive moshing.” And having mates in the band doesn’t give you the right to act up. “When I saw 900 Spaces some bloke shouted ‘Oi Stew! Oi! Yeah! Stew!’ constantly, between every song,” recalls Toby Dore.

Smelling Bad

A bit of common courtesy here – wash your pits before you go and stand in a hot room very close to lots of other people. “B.O. after a sweaty night out is perfectly fine,” says Andrew White, “but before the first support, no.” Similarly farting. “Remember people,” says Megan Wright, “now there is no smoking at gigs there is no cover for this behaviour.” Five hundred people farting in a room with no windows? No thanks.

Tall People

Being short at a gig is a curse. So if you’re tall, show a bit of respect. “Take a glance behind”, suggests Jo Parker. “If there’s someone who genuinely can’t see then maybe shuffle somewhere that works better for both.” But it can be a torment for the tall too. “I get really narked when people who are standing behind me tut throughout the gig because they can’t see owing to my mega-lankiness”, says Robert Buckingham. There’s not much you can do about your height. In our experience the beanpoles need to get there early and let the little folk work around them. If you’ve got the height to see well don’t expect to be able to push to the front without getting it in the neck. Meanwhile sitting on someone’s shoulders means no-one behind you can see, so maybe keep that brief.

Page 54

Support The Support

You go to gigs cos you love music, so show some of that love to the musicians by watching the support bands, say quite a few of you. “Today’s supports are tomorrow’s main acts so listen to them”, says Steve Train. “I don’t like it when people clear off after their mate’s band has played,” adds Toby Dore. “If you don’t at least give the other bands a chance then you’re letting yourself down and the scene loses out on vital support.”

Topless Men

SOURCE’s Jess flagged up this one, which should have been left behind in the golden age of raving. Taking your top off isn’t going to keep you that much cooler than a t-shirt but does give you about a 99% chance of wiping your clammy body-sweat onto someone else. Get a nice breathable techno-fibre from a camping shop if overheating is that big a problem.

Buy Local

It’s not easy putting on gigs by local artists, so when you’re heading out for a night of entertainment how about sticking your hand in your pocket, suggests Toby Dore. “People who try to get into local band’s gigs without paying wind me up”, he says. “We put these on with money from our own pocket and anything we make just covers our costs, so you’re being a dick if you don’t pay.” You still want that guestlist?

Let People Have Fun

We’ll leave this to Christian Jegard from The Valentines: “I think as long as what you’re doing isn’t ridiculously disruptive and unsound, then people should be able to do whatever the fuck they like. It’s a gig not a memorial service. Just don’t be a dick, or an uptight Nazi. It’s just a band, its fine.” Of course where the line is drawn is the big issue here. And that’s what we want you to decide. We’ll keep you posted when we’re ready for your feedback to take it to the next stage.

STREET STYLE words by james kendall Photos by lomokev at lomokev.com/style

For some people, vintage means anything that’s been worn before, but Jenny is drawn to mid-century clothes and fashion from another era. She’s always been interested in costume and old films but it took a move down here five years ago for her to really embrace the look. “It’s easier to dress vintage here”, she says, “In Birmingham not so many people were into it.” She’s taken this obsession and turned it into Frantic About Frances, a pin up style lingerie label. “I get a lot of inspiration from the 50s”, she says. Check it out at franticaboutfrances. co.uk Hat from Martlets Hospice “It’s early 60s and it finishes off an outfit. I’ve got quite a lot of hats, but I don’t always wear them. They make an outfit seem more ladylike.” Glasses from eBay “They’re late 40s and I had my own lenses put in them. I love them because they’re so unusual and they’ve survived through 60-odd years. Apparently the arms are hand-rolled gold.” Jacket from charity shop “It flares out a little bit at the back, almost like a tailcoat. I can chuck it on and it makes any outfit look more formal.” Cardigan from Oxfam “It’s actually H&M but I thought it looked quite 50s. I like the colour and the beading on the front.” Dress from housemate “It’s original 50s but I don’t know where she got it. It’s hard to find that era’s dresses in good condition. I seem to have a fixation with 50s lilac dresses for some reason.” Handbag from charity shop “Oh god, my whole outfit is from charity shops! I like the shape and coincidentally it matched my hat.” Shoes from New Look “It’s nice that they’ve got a little heel, but they’re not too high so they’re ok to walk in.”

Unsung Hero

100 People Who Make Brighton What It Is tim brown No.35 Words by Stuart Huggett This year marks the 10th edition of Cinecity, the Brighton film festival. Co-director Tim Brown has been involved from the start. What are the festival’s roots? We set up Cinecity in 2003; at that time Brighton had no dedicated film festival. I worked at the Duke Of York’s and the University Of Brighton, and that partnership remains the bedrock of the festival (Frank Gray, director of Screen Archive South East at the University, is Cinecity’s other co-director). Our roles haven’t really changed, it’s still about working through the year to raise money, forge links, visit a lot of festivals, and, of course, watch a lot of films and put the programme together. The annual festival is the main focus but now we collaborate with Brighton Festival and House Visual Arts Festival each May, and work with the Duke Of York’s and others to present films and screenings right throughout the year. What role do Cinecity’s patrons play? They sometimes curate programmes and select films, take part in Q&As or help out with contacts and recommendations. In 2009 Henry Normal tipped us off about a debut feature called Down Terrace which we squeezed into the programme at the last minute. Its director Ben Wheatley has gone on to make Kill List and he’s back at the festival with a preview of his very funny new film Sightseers. This year we’re welcoming a new patron to the team, musician and soundtrack composer Barry Adamson, who’s got involved straight away in the music and film programme. Which Cinecity events have you been most proud of? One of the most moving was Simon Fisher Turner and Black Sifichi presenting Derek Jarman’s Blue live; it was given a further magical twist by coming out of the Duke of York’s after such a powerful performance to a perfect, thick blanket of snow. The exhibition of the Quay Brothers’ décors and miniature film sets was special for us; it’s currently at the Museum Of Modern Art in New York. This year’s Hangover Square film set installation was quite a departure and got an incredible response. It’s exciting to be able to go into the splendour of the Music Room at the Royal Pavilion to screen films. We’re showing Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon there. This year we’ve put a special emphasis on debut features – there are around 15 in the programme. Ultimately, giving a platform to new talent and having that element of discovery is always the most exciting and rewarding thing.

Plateau Bartholomews (01273) 733085 Sun-Thursday 9.30am-4pm, 6pm-10pm; Fri-Sat 9.30am-4pm, 6pm-11pm

THE PLACE

When we announced that we were heading to Plateau to do a food review our designer Matt, who knows about fine food (“What do you mean you’ve never eaten partridge?!” he once exclaimed), coolly declared it “the best restaurant in Brighton”. It’s not the first time we’ve heard such praise, but we held back from getting our Secret Eater disguises on as when we reviewed their sister café Mange Tout they were a bit cross because we only said they make “one of the best fry ups in Brighton”. The setting is certainly up to scratch – a modern, chic bare-brick-and-metal industrial vibe – but can the food live up to the hype?

THE MEAL

There’s a small menu that you can see online but the most important stuff changes every day and is written up on the blackboards. We choose a little from each, starting with the butternut squash risotto (£6) which is exquisitely creamy thanks to the ricotta. We’ve never made anything a fraction as nice with butternut squash. That’s joined by the spicy tuna loin (£7), which comes on a bed of pickled vegetables that could have so easily overpowered the soft, barely cooked tuna. The wasabi mayo completes the sushi feel beautifully. Onto the main course and the grilled bavette steak is astounding – full of flavour, peppery and smoky, but nowhere near as chewy as you’d expect from meat on the flank. It was clearly cooked with a deft touch, as were the soft chips. A bargain at £12. We add a sizable mixed leaf and Pecorino salad (£3.50) to the smoked partridge breast and confit leg (£7) to turn it into a filling main. Gamey with crispy skin, again there isn’t a flavour out of place.

THE VERDICT

We hope this doesn’t make them cross again but we think Plateau is one of the best restaurants in Brighton. The food was exceptional, and pretty reasonably priced. We’ll be back to try their sharing plateaus, starting with the hot meat one.

WERE WE SUSSED?

We imagine there’s loads of food blogs uploading photos of Plateau’s stunningly presented food. No one mentioned anything.

IN CONVERSATION WITH

BOO COOK

we judge brighton’s leading comic artist: he dreads it Words By Stuart Huggett Boo Cook’s comic artwork regularly appears in 2000AD and Elephantmen. Closer to home, his designs have featured on recent Tru Thoughts albums by Sleepin Giantz and Zed Bias. Check his drawing at boocook.tumblr.com. What comics did you enjoy as a kid? I lived on the edge of the Dartmoor, so anything I could get to feed my imagination in a fresh, exciting way was gratefully received. My grandpa used to send me a comic in the post each week – Look-in, The Beano. When I was 9 or 10, my pal Tom introduced me to 2000AD. A small bunch of mates and myself used to spend all our time trying to emulate its art styles and my passion for that has remained to this day. How did you get into professional illustration? My first published work was in 2000AD, but before that I’d done several small press and self-published projects. They’re an indispensible proving ground to try out your visual storytelling skills and get feedback from comics readers, to see how you can improve and develop. Once you’ve gained a certain level of confidence you can start sending bundles of work off to editors, but you have to be patient and tenacious, listen to what they say, take advice on board and keep sending. What skills do you need to be a comic artist? A really healthy dose of life drawing is invaluable as 99.9% of comic strips involve our complex human anatomy. Not many art colleges can teach you to draw the crazy stuff but if you couple your imagination with a solid grounding in the basics of painting, drawing and colouring you should be off to a good start. The bible to me as a kid was Stan Lee and John Buscema’s How To Draw Comics The Marvel Way, an awesome, all encompassing book for any aspiring comic artist. What strips do you most enjoy drawing? My favourites are ones with a science fiction angle and plenty of scope to give my imagination a tasty workout. Richard Starkings’ creation Elephantmen is great because I love drawing heavy hitters. The strip centres mainly around this

Page 64

group of massive human/animal genetic hybrids: they were engineered for war, but now the war is over they’re struggling with the complexities of re-integrating into a very Blade Runner future society in LA. With Judge Anderson Psi I get to play in the world of Judge Dredd, Mega City One. Judge Cassandra Anderson is a very well fleshed out, realistic character, with the full range of human emotion to portray, but due to her psychic abilities you can always expect some twisted psychedelic mayhem to go down, courtesy of writer Alan Grant. What other writers do you like working with? I’ve had some great sojourns into sci-fi with Rob Williams and strips like Asylum and Judge Dredd. I also really love the work of Al Ewing and had the chance to work with him a few times, which was great. At the moment I’m working on a strip for 2000AD called Gunheadz with my long time friend and incredible writer Tom Eglington. Not only is he technically very adept, he has a boundless imagination and crazy style which fits together really well with the way I like to make comics. Which up and coming artists do you admire? Lately I’ve been getting into James Harren’s work on B.P.R.D., Becky Cloonan on Conan and Nick Dyer’s Dredd work. Nick’s a fellow Brightonite, so we meet up quite often and discuss mind-blowing things like pen nibs and paper types. Joking aside, it’s great to have someone local who you can discuss the ins and outs of comic art with. What other commissions do you take? Advertising is a little dissatisfying on the soul front for me, so I tend to keep it comics or at least sci-fi based. Occasionally I’ll meet someone like Tru Thoughts’ wacky MD Paul Jonas who will need something space based or a bit crazy for an album cover. If I’m moved by the music or there’s some illustration work I can emotionally invest in I’ll always give it a pop. My collaboration with Elephantmen’s Richard Starkings seems to be an ongoing thing, so I always have a job or two in the pipeline with him, and I’m incredibly grateful to alien Matt Smith (AKA Tharg the Mighty), my editor at 2000AD, for keeping me in work for over 12 years now. With any luck there’ll be many more gigs to come.

Six Of The Best

Sports Films

Words By Ben Bailey, Joel Dawes, James Kendall

You don’t have to be a stat-headed games fan to like sports films. Perfectly set up to drive a narrative, they instantly add an element of excitement to the final scenes. We’ll never forget the whole cinema chanting “Rocky! Rocky! Rocky!” as the titular hero bashed up Ivan Drago for his fourth outing. What’s interesting is that the type of sport isn’t a barrier to success. In fact many of the best of the genre have been about baseball which, let’s face it, is rounders without the accompanying picnic. Here’s six of the genre’s winners.

Raging Bull

Not just one of the best sport movies, but probably Martin Scorsese’s finest, and so one of the best films of all time. A tense and brutal, yet beautifully shot, period piece, everyone shines, especially Joe Pesci. But obviously this is the De Niro show. Though he famously put on more than four stone to play the slovenly fighter in later life, that was just a fraction of what he put into his career-defining performance. Even though there are just a few minutes of boxing, the hyper-real feel means that when you think of boxing what you see is grainy black and white. (JK)

Rollerball

Six years from now, in a corporate utopia full of sumptuous 70s décor, crime and war have been replaced by a futuristic version of roller derby involving motorbikes and spiked gloves. Flitting between brutal action scenes and a sinister portrayal of a society hooked on the spectacle of violence, the film’s startling climax both undermines the hero’s plight and implicates us, the audience. Director Norman Jewison was appalled at plans to start a real-life version of the sport. He must’ve been equally upset by the dumb-as-fuck 2002 remake ‘starring’ LL Cool J. (BB)

Bull Durham

“Oh Crash, you do make speeches!” says Susan Sarandon’s aging groupie after Kevin Costner gives his famous “I believe in the small of a woman’s back…” spiel. But actually this story of minor league baseball is rather understated and gentle. Much better than Costner’s ridiculous Field Of Dreams, this might have the same story as nearly every baseball movie (rag-tag team of no hopers gets good) but it doesn’t blindly stumble towards the

Page 78

dog town & z-Boys

final win. Ron Sheldon – a minor league baseball player himself – had a great run of sports movies, as did Kevin Costner. The two hit gold again with Tin Cup. (JK)

The Wrestler

Is wrestling a sport or a branch of pantomime? The Wrestler certainly paints a world that’s every bit as tough on the body as traditional bouts. Plasticine-faced former boxer Mickey Rourke, in a dream comeback gig, plays Randy ‘The Ram’ Robinson, an 80s star so far past his prime success is a distant memory. Rather like De Niro’s Jake LaMotta, Robinson can’t handle the fight of real life. So The Ram can’t escape the ring. His struggling relationships with a stripper he’s fallen for and his estranged daughter are almost as painful to watch as his failure to manage menial work. (JK)

Dogtown & Z-Boys

The dawn of modern skateboarding was bound to be an interesting story but the fact that the people involved were such street-tough outsiders makes this an incredibly powerful documentary. Director Stacy Peralta was a Z-Boy which gave him both access – to the protagonists and a wealth of visual material – and an insider’s viewpoint. The descent of Jay Adams’ raw talent to drugs and prison gives the latter part of the film an emotional heart you wouldn’t expect from the energy of the first half. Stacey’s Bones Brigade documentary drops any day, so get ready for chapter two. (JK)

Caddyshack

Chevy Chase and Bill Murray deliver classic performances in this golfing comedy from 1980. The cleverly-crafted script and use of several divergent yet interwoven story-lines really sets this apart from the average American farce. Rodney Dangerfield is on top form as an obnoxious nouveau riche golfer who constantly spits hilarious one-liners, while Bill Murray’s madcap battle with the gopher provides even more laughs. This gem is considered by many to be one of the finest sports comedies ever. Watching golf has never been so fun. (JD)
