VINYL DEMAND

This month’s cover stars Well Rounded are head over heels in love with vinyl, and that’s something that we can understand. There’s something about a physical object – something that’s not simply holding data – that gives it more of a place in your life. The cover art, the record shelves dominating your living room with a rainbow of spines, the history of music (some which will never be digitalised)… vinyl is just special. But there’s also another side. Ever since dance music went digital the previously impervious world of DJs has suddenly become open to everyone. If you’ve got a laptop, a tablet or even a smartphone you can put together a decent set that can rock any party. If you can find a couple of hundred quid for a midicontroller then there’s not a single club in the world that would turn you away if you were good enough. And with sync buttons doing most of the legwork you can be good enough. So what do you need to be a good DJ then? Simply great music, music you can put together in a way that no one else would think to. And where do you find this great music? Well, record shops are a good start. They have these great things called vinyl records.

MORE MOORE

Brighton’s big free watersports festival Paddle Round The Pier is back on Hove Lawns this month. As well as surfing, paddle boarding, kite surfing and kayaking, there’s plenty of street sports on dry land, including skating, free running and mountain biking. Live music across the weekend features Jennifer Left, Fat 45, Carnival Collective and over a dozen more. Paddle Round The Pier takes place Sat 6th – Sun 7th, raising money for the RNLI, Winston’s Wish and Surf Action charities.

Independent college Dv8 Sussex celebrates 10 years of nurturing music, fashion, digital media and live event talent in the city with a birthday at the Blind Tiger on Fri 5th. Live music comes from ska sensations The Meow Meows, and the night features appearances by Dv8 students and staff, old and new, including MCs, musicians and producers. It’s a private event but if you went to Dv8, worked with them or just wish to join the celebration, contact sussexevents@dv8training.com

The first weekend of the month brings two diverse drink festivals to the city, a big one at Stanmer House and a boutique one at The Victory pub. Fullers of Chiswick, brewers of London Pride, present their Pride & Prejudice festival of beer and music at Stanmer House with eight live bands, 30 real ales, cider and food. The Victory caters for a different palette with its Cider & Sussex Cheese festival, also featuring live music and DJs. Both events run Fri 5th – Sun 8th.

Named after a collective intent on giving greater prominence to overlooked works from Queer Cinema, Eyes Wide Open is a mini fest of limited-release films in collaboration with Brighton & Hove Pride. Screenings include Judy Garland’s final cinematic warble I Could Go On Singing, a doc and discussion with activist Bette Bourne, a double bill devoted to Divine and an evening of shorts. Swivel your paws towards Eyes Wide Open Cinema on your favourite social networking portal for the latest additions to the line-up.

Local legends of roller derby – a full contact women’s sport on skates – the Brighton Rockers weren’t planning on taking on any more trainees until 2014. Perhaps prompted by recent results, which included a thumping in Glasgow and being knocked out of a London tournament by lower ranked Bristol, they’ve had a change of heart and are looking for a new intake of ‘fresh meat’ right now. Any proficient female skaters aged 18+ who fancy giving it a go should contact brightonrockers.com

The intriguingly named hiSbe (‘how it Should be’) is a new ethical supermarket set to open next month on London Road, once their crowd-funding scheme’s gathered some pennies. This social enterprise aims to ‘create a supermarket fit for the 21st century’ with ethical sourcing, good food and a futuristic design. Selling your standard household brands as well as local veg and loose wholefoods, if the prices are genuinely affordable we’ll be all over it like houmous on Ryvita.

Brighton’s Big Screen beach cinema returns to the lower prom next month, for a summer season of film and sports screenings. Expanding on its Olympics coverage last year, the programme mixes favourite blockbusters like Top Gun and Saturday Night Fever, cult movies and films with a local connection, such as Quadrophenia and the original Brighton Rock. The 2013 World Championships In Athletics from Moscow bulks up the sports coverage. Screenings are free but VIP tickets are also on sale.

After a fallow year, the Colour Out Of Space festival of experimental sound and art is set to return this November. In the meantime, organisers bring Thurston Moore (ex-Sonic Youth, now of Chelsea Light Moving) back for his second lowkey Brighton gig of the year on August 21st, in A Night Of Heliocentric Duo Exchange at the Blind Tiger. The duo performances will see Moore collaborate with COOS’ Dylan Nyoukis, Byron Coley with Savage Pencil and Karen Constance with Lauren Naylor.

NEW IN TOWN WORDS BY CHRIS BIGGS, ZAC COLBERT, STUART HUGGETT

DR MARTEN’S SHOP LAUNCH

J.W. LENNON’S

The recently refurbished Leconfield on Edward Street now boasts the title of ‘Ale House and Spirit Grocer’ with an IrishAmerican theme. With live bands weekly and a floor covered in sawdust, this new Guinness hole is certainly worth a visit. It’s probably worth mentioning that all the drinks are £3, and this isn’t just an opening promotion. If you’re looking for a knees-up and a tankard of ale, there’s no reason you shouldn’t do it here.

BOOGIE WONDERLAND

The Green Door Store host their first Boogie Wonderland on Thurs 4th, a free club night celebrating East Coast disco, Philly groove, New York boogie and hi-NRG soul. Taking time out from disrupting far right marches with the power of dance, the English Disco Lovers will be in attendance, alongside resident DJ Sam Moffett, Luther Ivan Dross (Teen Creeps, Sunday Seduction) and guests. Join the true disco lovers and come dance for peace, equality and unity all night long.

GRRRILLA

A night celebrating Brighton’s electronic music makers and illustrators launches at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar on Weds 17th. For its first show, Grrrilla welcomes live guests Alphabet’s Heaven, Caveman Genius, King Dinosaur, MoMoTaRo and Sam Physics, with artists Alessandra Chambers, Jack Evans and Pete Sharp presenting their work at a pop up shop. Entry is £3 on the door.

MINKY MOOZ

Minky Mooz is an art, clothing and merchandise brand, specialising in products that are ethnically sourced, ecofriendly and perfect for parents and kids. The designs are vibrant and playful, like a cross between Plain Lazy and Paul

Frank, but less expensive so the rest of us normalites can get involved. They’re having a super-fun happy time launch party at the Basement on Sat 20th from 1pm – 1am, with cakes and sweets for the kids and Brighton DJs rinsing out for the adults.

BOOST

Offering a wide range of fruit blends and smoothies, the new Boost Juice Bar in Churchill Square is proving hugely popular with health conscious shoppers, shifting nearly a thousand drinks in its opening day alone. Brighton’s fast turnover outlet is the latest addition to Boost’s rapidly expanding empire, with the bars already very familiar to overseas travellers thanks to its success in Australia and Asia.

DR MARTEN’S SHOP

Take a moment to check out people’s footwear on any Brighton street and you’ll quickly see that Dr. Marten’s boots are still top of the shoe tree. The iconic footwear brand has just opened its own store on Prince Albert Street, offering a full range of boots and accessories. Launched back in 1960, the Doc has been the choice of subcultures around the world, but, thanks to generations of Brightonians, Dr. Marten’s considers the city its ‘spiritual home’.

BLACK ROCK RECORDS

DJ Steve Mac, who found worldwide success with The Rhythm Masters, has set up a new label in Brighton that he says is all about “giving something back to the industry that’s given me so much.” Black Rock Records and its Publishing arm aim to develop and reward new house music talent, with Mac offering production support and his remix skills to all its signings. Black Rock’s debut release, The Unknown’s ‘Ghetto Party’, is out this month.

MISSION OF BURMA

Haunt Mon 1st

Although well-regarded in their first incarnation, Boston’s Mission Of Burma were unable to build on the success of their sole album (1982’s ‘Vs’) when guitarist Roger Miller began suffering from tinnitus brought on by the post punk band’s famously loud shows. Fans like REM and Moby kept Burma’s songs alive, and the band eventually reformed in 2002, with Shellac’s Bob Weston replacing innovative tape manipulator Martin Swope. They’ve since released four acclaimed LPs and are as viscerally thrilling live as ever. (SH)

SCOTT & CHARLENE’S WEDDING

ADVANCE BASE

SOURCE TICKETS

Hope Mon 8th

The artist formerly known as Casiotone For The Painfully Alone is back on the road under the moniker Advance Base. As you’d expect from a musician who defines his genre as ‘sad’, his new songs are bittersweet, a bit darker and more serious than Casiotone was, but with the same twinkly, stripped back style. This is the perfect music to lie back and watch the stars to, but if that’s not an option, it’ll also sound great upstairs at The Hope. (JMM)

SCOTT & CHARLENE’S WEDDING

JARROD DICKENSON & DAVID FORD

THOUGHT FORMS

MONNONE ALONE

Green Door Store Tues 2nd

With such a dumb trash TV name, you won’t be surprised to hear that Scott & Charlene’s Wedding are Aussies, hailing from the Melbourne home of Neighbours. Formed by slacker-atlarge Craig Dermody, S&CW mix up a loose grunge pop blend of Modern Lovers naivety and Mudhoney self-loathing, channelled through the driving Velvet Underground garage of Dermody’s adopted New York home. It’s a scuzz rock splurge a million miles from anything peddled by Kylie, Jason or Angry Anderson. (SH)

Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar Weds 3rd

SOURCE TICKETS

Bristolians Thought Forms are not a band to rush things. Having got together back in 2004, they waited five years before releasing their first album, then until now for their second, the spectacular ‘Ghost Mountain’. It’s absolutely worth the wait, as anyone who’s seen them in supporting slots for Portishead and Esben And The Witch will testify. Atmospheric rhythms escalate into epic walls of sound, with a stage presence that’s magnetic. Sweet Williams support on a night that promises to astound. (JMM)

Hope Weds 10th

These transatlantic buddies have toured the UK and US together before, although for Texas-born, Brooklyn-based songwriter Jarrod Dickenson this will be his first show in Brighton. Not so for David Ford, the quietly witty troubadour has been popping back and forth to the city since his teenage years in Eastbourne’s angsty guitarpop trio Easyworld. Ford has an inventive way with sampling and looping, Dickenson with intense Americana, and this is a good chance to catch them both up close. (SH)

Prince Albert Weds 10th

As the British winter sees many of our bands jet off down under for the sunny Oz festival circuit, so July appears to be the month in which our antipodean friends make the return trip, for Brighton’s, er, blazing seaside heat. Monnone Alone is a vehicle for songwriter Mark Monnone, formerly of widely adored Melbourne indiepoppers The Lucksmiths. Titles like ‘My Overdue Library Fines’ (from last year’s ‘Together At Last’ LP) pretty much give you the picture of Monnone’s sun-baked, melodic appeal. (SH)

SHUGGIE OTIS

MS MR

Haunt Thurs 11th

One of this year’s big SXSW tips, Ms Mr (pronounce it “miss mister”) are Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow, a New York duo producing grand, ambitious pop music. Plapinger’s soaring vocals and the pounding studio orchestration of recent album ‘Secondhand Rapture’ suggest an anglophile ear attuned to the elemental thundering of Bat For Lashes and Florence Welch, so it’s no surprise that they’ve gigged with Marina & The Diamonds. A waterfall of colour and chorus, this could be big. (SH)

SHUGGIE OTIS

SOURCE TICKETS

Concorde 2 Thurs 11th

Yes! Damn right LA’s Shuggie Otis is still alive, and better still, he’s bringing his effortless, psych-tinged pop to the Concorde for one of the very first dates on his somewhat ominously named Neverending World Tour. You can bet he’ll look badass too. 39 years on from ‘Inspiration Information’, Otis is back to show he can still cut it, serving up the kind of sweetspot soul that’s been sampled by the likes of Beyoncé, J Dilla and Outkast. (JKY)

AMANDA PALMER & THE GRAND THEFT ORCHESTRA Concorde 2 Sat 13th

Having crowdsourced a record-breaking $1m to make last year’s ‘Theatre Is Evil’, the former Dresden Dolls singer then cancelled her UK tour to spend time with her best friend who was battling cancer. It was a brave decision, but this Twitter-obsessed ninja-gigger has a habit of doing things her own way. The pay-what-you-will album adds synths and new wave guitars to Palmer’s trademark piano cabaret punk without losing any of the dramatic hooks and razor-sharp lyrics. It’s dark, compelling stuff. (BB)

THE LEE SCOTT NEWCOMBE ENSEMBLE Phoenix Sat 13th

Led by multi-instrumentalist and sound artist Lee Scott Newcombe, this is a performance that will expand on the concept of musical showmanship, combining an intimate live show with audience participation and artistic experimentation. Over the evening there will be five pieces, including ‘Rubik Musik’ in which a graphic score is printed onto the cubes and distributed amongst the audience, who effectively conduct the show. Featuring keyboard, saxophone and flute as well as various objects, the ensemble creates something unpredictable and beautiful. (JMM)

FIGHT LIKE APES Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar Mon 15th

Whoever said you need guitars to form a rock band has obviously never listened to Fight Like Apes. After a two year hiatus the band are bringing their synth infused, alternative pop electronica to a select few UK venues. Drawing on influences from the Pixies to Mclusky, they add their own B-movie inspired spin with impassioned, shrill, punk vocals. Support comes from the SleaterKinney/Throwing Muses grunge styles of London’s Throwing Up. (AT)

FRIENDS & NO CEREMONY/// Coalition Tues 16th

SOURCE TICKETS

One of the highlights of last year’s Great Escape was witnessing Brooklyn’s indie club kids Friends tearing up Horatio’s on the pier, totally blowing away Niki & The Dove’s flat headline set. Their sound is very 80s New York with influences ranging from Talking Heads to Madonna and, more importantly, their live shows are a fun-packed party. Tonight’s a co-headline with Manchester’s enigmatic No Ceremony///, whose shifting post-rave pop experiments have slyly seduced DJs from Diplo to Radio One. (SC)

Hope Thurs 18th

Fortunately for us, there’s more to Tunabunny than being the owners of the worst band name in the music industry. If you caught Shrag’s final shows when they hit Sticky Mike’s last year, you’ll remember the frenzied energy of their touring buddies. From Athens, Georgia (where, fittingly, they’ve gigged with the The B-52s), the band play merry havoc with your preconceptions, whipping up a swirl of snappy pop and post punk loopiness. Wear some shoes you can dance in. (JMM)

THE LEVELLERS

Dome Fri 19th

The none too surprising demand for tickets that triggered the transfer of this month’s long-awaited hometown Levellers show from St Bartholomew’s Church to the Dome takes away a little of the air of uniqueness from the evening, but will make up for it in volume, fun and the sheer number of fans freaking out in the hoedown. It’s their 25th anniversary concert, so if you’ve ever been a fan of the band’s politicised, unifying electric folk you really ought to be raising a flagon in salute. (SH)

THE MEOW MEOWS Gladstone Fri 19th

Like the 2-tone movement that inspired it, Brighton’s ska-revival scene can appear a bit blokey. This isn’t the case with the excellent Meow Meows, whose mixed sex membership and love of punk and soul makes them one of the most enjoyable live acts in the city. They take over The Gladstone tonight to launch their second album ‘Somehow We Met’, recorded after a successful PledgeMusic campaign with producer Prince Fatty, who lends DJ support along with Mutant HiFi.

AKRON/FAMILY

Haunt Sat 20th

Freak folk wizards Akron/Family came to notice when Swans’ Michael Gira picked them up for his Young God label and enlisted them into the ranks of his Angels Of Light band. From early untethered experimental sessions in Brooklyn, Akron/ Family have found force and focus as an epic American psychedelic band, with a widescreen, rolling, rhythmic sound heard at its best on this year’s sixth album ‘Sub Verses’. They’ll be calling down the elements for tonight’s powerful show. (SH)

The duo have released four mind-blowing folky, bluesy rock albums in the past decade, with last year’s ‘The Bloom And The Blight’ delivering some of their finest and most thought provoking work yet.

There’s a generation or two separating these Scots craftspeople, but modern folk rock group Trembling Bells and former Incredible String Band singer Mike Heron have become firm allies, touring and recording together several times in recent years. Tonight’s show finds them sharing material and swapping songs from across the decades, a relaxed, welcoming lesson in these isles’ folk song history. With Trembling Bells’ background in improv and Heron’s psychedelic influence, a freewheeling element should shine through. (SH)

WELL ROUNDED WITH FOUR LABELS, A WEEKLY CLUB NIGHT AND A RECORD SHOP, DONGA AND RICHTA ARE BRINGING THE MOST INTERESTING DANCE MUSIC TO BRIGHTON. ON VINYL. WORDS BY JAMES KENDALL PHOTO BY KENNY MC CRACKEN AT CREATE

CAPTION

FYI

CLUB NIGHT: Every Friday, Life SHOP:104 Trafalgar St, above Rarekind WEB: facebook.com/WellRoundedRecs

A few years ago you couldn’t get arrested playing house. The music, which characterised the 90s, was dead and buried to all but a few obsessives. But then it was saved by, of all things, dubstep. Some of that genre’s bored producers started looking back for inspiration, past garage into pure house music. Within a few years deep house would be the sound of Brighton’s dancefloors. Well Rounded was the record label that helped it get there. Headed up by Donga and his right hand man Richta, the label was born when Donga couldn’t believe no one was releasing one of the best tunes in his box, Deadboy’s ‘U Cheated’. He stepped up to the plate himself and the track not only put Well Rounded on the map, but also kickstarted the resurgence in 2-step. At once it sounded incredibly modern and completely classic, something that has come to define so many tracks on the label. Producers like Brighton boy Leon Vynehall have made a huge impression with tracks like the deep, sensual grooves of ‘Mauve’. The sound that Well Rounded call contemporary house, and some call simply bass, has caught the imagination of young producers and clubbers alike. “I think people have steadily been working backwards from garage at the end of the 90s towards house music from the early 90s,” says Donga, who has himself produced some of the

PAGE 16

label’s classics with his partner Blake. “It seems as if the influences are being reformed to have more bass impact for today’s generation. Even techno and late 80s acid house – it’s all back on the dancefloor again.” But the sounds that Well Rounded offer are more that just 4/4, leading to not one but four record labels under their umbrella. The main label hosts tracks that have a wider appeal (“By nature, not by design,” promises Donga) from “hands in the air, garage-influenced euphoria” through to “tropical bass-heavy fusions”. In addition there’s Well Rounded Housing Project, but even that boasts a wider sound than the name suggests – travelling from the ‘Slow Spectrum’ EP’s spacy downtempo house to jazzy tracks from Outboxx. It has also released remixes by deep house superstar Julio Bashmore, and was the label that launched Leon Vynehall, who now has had a session on Boiler Room and tracks on Aus. Making up the quartet are the new, vinyl-only Well Rounded Edits, and the decidedly off-the-wall Well Rounded Individuals. WRI – which is often a testing ground for new musical genres for Well Rounded to explore – bounces fantastically from Wheez-ie’s juke to Archie Pelago’s electronic jazz. The latter is

releases we’ve ever put out happening between now and then.” In that ‘wrapping up’ period there’s also Well Rounded’s new Friday night summer residency at Life, a huge undertaking for a culture that now rarely sees clubs appear once a month. And as well as going weekly they’re also breaking conventional wisdom by not putting any of the DJs on the flyer. “We’re going to get some great people down to play but we’re not going to announce them because we don’t think that that should be the reason to go to a club,” explains Richta. “The night is about balancing things that people might not have heard before from the underground and bringing in beloved tracks from the history of house music, including associated genres like garage and original electro,” says Donga. “We’re as likely to play an early Todd Terry record or Armand Van Helden track, as we are something on an underground label from Bristol.” If anyone has got access to great tracks from the underground it’s Donga and Richta, thanks to the Well Rounded record shop in the Rarekind complex at the bottom of Trafalgar Street that also houses RK Bass. Well Rounded Vinyl Vendors is a tiny room but is packed with an incredible collection of 12” records that are curated as carefully as Donga would put together his set. “The digital thing just doesn’t satisfy me,” he explains, “which is why I opened a record shop. You’d be a nutter to open a record shop selling underground dance music vinyl if you wanted to make money. But we’re doing pretty well, and it seems like it’s building.” But what’s so special about vinyl? “We think it sounds better than other mediums in the club,” explains Richta. “We’ve had two DJs playing and one is playing vinyl and the other is playing CDs. With our backs turned we can tell the difference.” “My body can tell the difference,” adds Donga. “And when I play out sometimes the tune that goes off might be the second track on the B-side of a 12” that no one in the room has even got. People are missing a trick. You can have your own sound and identity.” That’s something Well Rounded have got in abundance. now sponsored by Ableton, just one of the success stories of Well Rounded. “A lot of stuff we do will have passed people by because it exists in the underground,” says Donga, “but many of the people we work with are incredibly talented, and going on to bigger things.” But big things aren’t what Well Rounded are all about. “Well Rounded is about as far away from a corporate way of doing things as you could imagine,” says Richta. “It’s instinctive and intuitive.” “The idea is that we do what we want to do and don’t pander to expectations,” adds Donga. “Beyond that we don’t have any sense of any musical strategy or agenda. If you asked me what the label would be sounding like in four months time, I couldn’t say.” If you hang out on websites like Fact you may think that in four months’ it will all be over. It’s been widely reported that Well Rounded are calling it a day, and in a manner of speaking that’s true. At the height of their success Donga is closing down the four labels to start again from scratch. “I think we need to stop and restart,” he explains. “It’s not an end, the new project is going to be something more in the line of an organisation, a collective. But we have got some of the best

DONGA’S WELL ROUNDED FAVES THAT YOU MAY NOT BE FAMILIAR WITH

SPATIAL ‘Deconstructivist Dubs EP’ “Twerkin’ jerkin’ tracks that take bumpy bass to a different space.” WHEEZ-IE ‘Remember The Score EP’ “Linking acid to ‘ardcore to juke. Hard euphorics for the footwerkin’ ravers.” VARIOUS ‘Slow Spectrum EP’ “Four artists contribute to this drowsy drift of an EP. Slow motion soundtracks for space programmes.” VIDEODROME ‘Temptation’s Daughter’ Brash electro-pop with mad vocal delivery. Quite unique and a deserving hit in a parallel universe. BAD AUTOPSY ‘Cash Antics Vol 3’ “The first two rode some deserved hype but here we go deeper into r’n’b/ disco fusion. It’s pretty steamy!”

CLUB PREVIEWS WORDS BY CHRIS BIGGS, ZAC COLBERT, JAMES KENDALL, JESSICA MARSHALL MCHATTIE, ANNA THOMAS

BANKS

Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar Fri 5th

The Bug Collective present their second event, Bug 2.0, with usual residents Barry Grifter, Anna Chocola and T.C.C. oiling the decks with a mixture of well-chosen classics, unearthed originals and new music. Headlining the night is Banks, the Brighton local who’s recently signed to Ninja Tune, performing live. He’s a trained multi-instrumentalist as well as a very talented producer, so it’ll be an opportunity to see how he crafts the style that’s led him to remixes for the likes of Bonobo and Andreya Triana. (JMM)

JUNGLE ALLIANCE

Volks Fri 5th

Dialect & Kosine’s Jungle Alliance Recordings celebrate their second anniversary at the Volks with a nine hour party, headlined by Remarc, whose innovative, sliced and diced 90s productions have led him to be known as the king of the Amen break. Teaming up with Remarc tonight are Hackney soundsystem veterans the Ragga Twins, MCs whose conscious delivery goes right back to the 80s streets. It’s not a retro night though, as Jungle Alliance bring all the flavours of dancehall, drum’n’bass, dubstep and ragga to the table for true hardcore junglists. (SH)

THUGFUCKER

Smack Fri 5th

Thugfucker had a rather slow rise to their ‘overnight success’, clocking up seven years of solid releases on Music For Freaks and Brique Rouge before euphoric, quirky house track ‘Disco Gnome’ caught the ears of the Visionquest crew. From there they haven’t looked back, with the Greg half of the duo (as Life & Death) dividing people with fat basslined oddity ‘Step Aside’’s spoken vocal, but dividing nobody with its 5am doom groove. What they’ll play between those two tracks makes a very interesting prospect. Another great booking for Moody Disco. (JK)

PAGE 18

ULTRAMAGNETIC MC’S

RADIO NASTY

Volks Sat 6th

Sicknote’s techno gathering returns for an all-nighter headlined by Billy Nasty and Radioactive Man’s dark-edged Radio Nasty collaboration. It’s been 20 years since Nasty mixed the inaugural volume of Journeys By DJ, widely recognised as the first commercially available mix album, while Radioactive Man Keith Tenniswood’s credits stretch from his Sabres Of Paradise and Two Lone Swordsmen involvement to a brace of solo records on Rotters Golf Club. Radio Nasty finds the pair exploring the harder sounds of early rave. (SH)

ROBERT JAMES

Coalition Sat 6th

Iraq must be near the bottom of the list of places you’re likely to catch the clubbing bug. But that’s where former soldier and current Hot Creations producer Robert James found his inspiration – escaping the noise of mortar attacks in the cinema watching a Tiesto DVD. Nowadays he’s more likely to be dropping deep, chugging, tech-edged melodic house music at DC10 and Panorama Bar, quite a rise for someone so far removed from the culture. No wonder Pete Tong announced him as One To Watch in 2011. (JK)

ULTRAMAGNETIC MC’S Concorde 2 Sat 6th

SOURCE TICKETS

There’s been a flurry of golden age hip hop shows hitting Brighton over the last few months but this rare as hell outing is the icing on the cake. Ultramagentic MC’s reform with their original lineup (yes, and that includes Kool Keith) to perform their ahead of its time debut ‘Critical Beatdown’. Released in 1988, it’s now regarded as a new school classic, with producer Ced Gee arguably changing the way hip hop used samples and breaks forever. (AT)

Concorde 2 Sat 6th

One of the genre’s long-term top dogs, DJ Hype is perhaps best known for his drum’n’bass mega hits in the 90s and for running Ganga Records, or perhaps for his pirate radio presence, or perhaps for his jump up drum’n’bass sets for Playaz nights at Fabric. Whatever it is, if you know DJ Hype, you’ll know his sets are a blinding selection of new and old, melding the best of drum’n’bass over the past two decades, and are not to be missed. (JMM)

THE PHARCYDE

Haunt Mon 8th

Oh shit, it’s jiggaboo time at The Haunt tonight. ‘Bizarre Ryde II The Pharcyde’ is in our humble opinion one of the best, most complete hip hop albums ever written. 20 years after its original release, whilst this show isn’t boasting the full original Pharcyde line-up, it does feature the styles of the inimitable Fat Lip, whose voice and flow are among the most distinctive ever to grace the genre. You’d be a fool to let this one be passin’ you by. (AT)

MARCH OF THE MERMAIDS Blind Tiger Weds 10th

Ever tried dancing with a fish tail or a peg leg? Warming up for the March Of The Mermaids family parade on Sat 27th, this evening’s tiki surf party celebrates all things fishy and nautical, raising funds for the Marine Conservation Society. Stay Sick DJs provide the soundtrack while partygoers shimmy around in their best mermaid, Hawaiian or pirate fancy dress. Live music includes blues guitarist John Crampton and the undersea theremin sounds of Sarah Angliss. (SH)

ILLUSIONS FOR SALE Belushi’s Below Sat 13th

Tonight’s all about cheap drinks and bizarre themes, with DJs playing everything from Ceremony to Carly Rae Jepson, Wavves to Wham! and Death Grips to Shaggy. Essentially it’s a punk/ hardcore/alternative rock night with some stupid stuff thrown in. Other regular features include witch detection, crotch buffet and limbo sticks. Check out the Facebook page if you want to see some of the strangest promotional videos ever created. You had us at crotch buffet. (CB)

LEFTWING & KODY

Audio Sat 13th

Deep, echoing percussion, low slung synths and skittering grooves make Leftwing & Kody’s new brand of 2-step techno sound like progressive house from 20 years ago. Yet instead of appearing dated, it feels accomplished and classic, like it’s been round the block but got a brand new record bag. Their ‘Bump & Flex’ EP was one of the most popular releases in underground dance last year and we’re hugely excited to be able to catch one of their sets. (ZC)

KIM ANN FOXMAN

Haunt Sun 14th

Well, leaving Hercules & Love Affair seems to have worked out quite nicely for Kim Ann Foxman after all. She’s one of a handful of figures at the top of the deep house scene who can DJ, produce and sing – in fact only Maya Jane Coles can give Kim Ann a run for her money in the dance music triathlon. She’s mentioned growing up listening to Technotronic and there’s a slight touch of their poppy 90s synth in amongst her slinky beats on the likes of ‘Hypnotic Dance’. She’ll certainly keep things as fun as they are sultry at tonight’s Dirty Dance Klub. (JK)

Our favourite musical spoonerism since Wevie Stonder, Com Truise is back in Brighton. Self-confessed synth obsessive Seth Haley has been making beats as Com Truise since 2009, and his sunshine-y, wavey songs melt over electronic basslines and funk-inspired rhythms. Latest album ‘In Decay’ was released last year on Ghostly International to acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic, and his live sets are always highly praised. (JMM)

JUST BLAZE

Concorde 2 Fri 19th

This heavenly union of trap and grime comes courtesy of TrapStyle and ENK, who are joining their considerable forces to put on a two room, five hour extravaganza. The night features, amongst others, Just Blaze, Butterz’ headman Terror Danjah, Sir Spyro, Charlie Traplin and LZ. It’s Just Blaze’s first time in Brighton for two years and he’s riding high on the success of his recent trap collaboration with Bauuer. Early bird tickets are a mere fiver and the night’s hosted by Ceezlin. (JMM)

XXXY

Xxxy’s delectable take on garage is as mouth watering as it is toe tapping. Blending sumptuous techno with high pitched samples and cumulonimbus basslines, it’s a style even more sexxxy than his name. With new releases on Ten Thousand Yen and Brighton’s own Well Rounded we’re hoping the Rinse FM regular has got some unheard treats in his record bag. But if he doesn’t, we still know he can have the most virginal dancefloor wriggling like rabbits on heat within minutes, so come prepared to get triple-xy. (ZC)

CLUB REVIEW

It’s not over the top to say that Skint Records changed Brighton throughout the 90s – bringing people to the city for hi-octane party tunes the way that Cream brought people to WORDS AND PHOTOS BY JAMES KENDALL Liverpool for house music. So it’s been sad that Skint have had such a low profile in clubbing terms since the (Big Beat) Boutique limped to an end. But they’re back, and firing like the old days.

SKINT

Last month saw Sonny Wharton and The Wideboys take to the decks at Coalition for a good start, but a line up that tonight includes Double 99 of ‘RIP Groove’ fame and Mike Skinner of The Streets is exciting not just for those who are enjoying the 2-step/speed garage revival. Double 99’s Omar keeps it tight with some big basslines while Skinner mixes things up, covering ground as wide as Baaueresque, mega-dropping stompers and Craig David, via Thomas Bangalter’s ‘Spinal Scratch’ (see Six Of The Best). We can’t wait to see what’s next.

COMEDY: THE MAYDAYS CONFESSIONS! Komedia Fri 5th & Sat 6th

Brighton improv troupe The Maydays’ long-running Confessions! show finds them turning the audience’s secrets and life-stories into an on the spot cavalcade of comedy, songs and dancing. Having regularly had their private lives exposed at the Komedia, the city’s audiences have decided it’s the turn of our friends up north to get a dose of the Maydays’ medicine, flocking to pledge to the group’s Kickstarter fund to play Edinburgh Fringe. Target achieved, it’s time to heap embarrassment on the Scots. (SH)

THEATRE: AS YOU LIKE IT Queen’s Park Sat 6th

With the sort of romantic lure only foreseeable in Brighton were someone to invent a local dating site for hipsters, Shakespeare’s Forest Of Arden is the setting where four folk find their soulmates, united by those decidedly un-hipsterish traits of lust, beauty, teasing and wittiness. Outdoor theatre is a right old laugh and rugs, chairs, booze and fags are welcome. It’s also worth pointing out that the Illyria troupe are pretty adept at making the creative best of adverse weather conditions. (BM)

TALK: BARBARA MOORE Greys Weds 10th

Barbara Moore was a secret starlet of the 60s and 70s, appearing, often anonymously, on countless records, radio and TV shows as vocalist, pianist, arranger and bandleader. From sessions with Hendrix and Elton John, to work on iconic programmes like The Saint and Alan ‘Fluff’ Freeman’s signature tune ‘The Sound Of The Swinging Cymbal’, Moore’s contribution to our cultural memory is huge but relatively little-known. Moore devotee and musical comedian Lorraine Bowen teases out tales from the maestro’s fascinating entertainment career in conversation this evening. (SH)

CABARET: PIFF THE MAGIC DRAGON Komedia Weds 10th & Sun 21st

Not many magicians can say they’ve shared a stage with both The Muppets and Mumford & Sons, but then not many magicians wear a dragon onesie or have a chihuahua for an assistant. These warm up dates for Piff’s new Edinburgh Festival show offer a mixture of classic magic tricks, deadpan comedy and audience members cooing over a small dog. Having first come to the public’s attention via a TV talent show, Piff’s growing fanbase defies his initial novelty tag. (AP)

COMEDY: SARA PASCOE / BRIDGET CHRISTIE

COMEDY: LAUGHTER MARKET - NICK HELM

Two performers who, once their hour is up, tend to leave you with, if you will, the sensation of having smelt good food rather than taken whatever the chef’s dealt you. Sara Pascoe, of BBC2’s Twenty Twelve and lots more besides, furrows a clever line in fast-paced existential pondering, while Bridget Christie, who made a series on feminism, Mind the Gap, for Radio 4 earlier this year, scorns the stupidity of misogyny in the age of technology. (BM)

The trouble with winning a Best Joke award at Edinburgh Fringe (as tonight’s Laughter Market headliner Nick Helm did a couple of years back) is that, straight away, audiences across the country will know your best gag. Fortunately, in Helm’s case, his jokes are often the least important part of his act. With one of the most belligerent personas on the circuit, Helm’s act combines violent song performance, sweat, self-disgust and lots of shouting. Brilliant, worrying and defiantly unique. (SH)

WE STEAL SECRETS

COMEDY: JOSH WIDDICOMBE/ CHARLIE BAKER

FILM: I AM DIVINE / FEMALE TROUBLE

One of many beneficiaries of last year’s Olympics madness was boyish stand up Josh Widdicombe, whose couch potato role on Channel 4’s smash Paralympics show The Last Leg introduced him to thousands of homes outside of the Dave panel show ghetto. This double-bonus Edinburgh preview ties him with Charlie Baker, whose comic talents go hand in hand with a serious acting CV, a second life as a jazz musician and an alter ego as a daytrip loving Mexican wrestler for Southern trains. (SH)

As part of Pride’s Eyes Wide Open cinema fest, the Duke’s and Riots Not Diets present a tantalising double bill of films featuring John Waters’ muse Divine. Hosted by Stephanie Starlet, with music courtesy of Prissylips, this late night event features a new documentary on the Baltimore bombshell followed by Divine’s gobsmacking performance as cha cha heels coveting Dawn Davenport in Female Trouble. Dressing up is encouraged, but it’s probably best to leave the dog turd eating to the experts. (SC)

Caroline Of Brunswick Tues 16th

COMEDY: RACHEL PARRIS / GRÁINNE MAGUIRE Caroline Of Brunswick Weds 17th

An accomplished singer and pianist with a glint in her eye and a gush of cynicism in her vocal chords, Rachel Parris’s Gleemocking, key-tinkering pisstakes seem better evolved with each of the young comedian’s tours. Hers is one of two Edinburgh previews here: Gráinne Maguire, as readers of the Evening Standard and The Independent may be aware, is a politics fan with a deceptively unassuming style concealing stinging one-liners and an understandably withering view of those expecting Irishreferencing material. (BM)

FILM: WE STEAL SECRETS: THE STORY OF WIKILEAKS Duke Of York’s Weds 17th

The times when Iceland was primarily a glacial glamspot where rock stars could do class As outside of Camden and everyone else could partake of holidays to justify their prohibitively expensive cameras seem long gone. These days it’s the home of freedom campaigners and retaliatory extraditions, and this film by documentarian Alex Gibney portrays some of the protagonists – specifically, Julian Assange and Bradley Manning – through an arsenal of interviews which offer frank insights into some highly complicated personalities. (BM)

Duke Of York’s Fri 19th

THEATRE: THE COLLISION OF THINGS Nightingale Tues 23rd – Weds 24th

When a young couple and their lodger attempt new beginnings in the city, tragedy strikes early on. Surprisingly, though, Move To Stand’s new work isn’t aimed squarely at anyone whose attempt to commute to a career in London has been foiled by a naïve reliance on trains. It is, however, a new work by a company renowned for tight scripts and powerful physical theatricality, appearing as part of a preview tour that will culminate in eventual Edinburgh performances. (BM)

EVENT: OUT LATE Brighton Museum Thurs 25th

A pox it is, that deep underlying guilt of not going to the museum enough, what with its magnificent architecture, gallery updates (the first, in some recent cases, for decades) and excellent exhibitions programme. As excuse and enticement, this night is surely where it’s at: a fancy dress box, a rainbow animation station, speed flirting, a photo booth and pre-Pride coming out confessions all feature, plus, of course, the irresistible chance to get pissed and have a dance-off within those beautiful galleries.

LOCALLY SOURCED WORDS BY STUART HUGGETT, JESSICA MARSHALL MCHATTIE PHOTO BY JAMES KENDALL

TRAAMS

EP: GUY ANDREWS

ALBUM: RUBYLUX

Producer Guy Andrews’ new four-track EP, his first on FINA, is more upbeat and accessible than some of his previous work. Although still firmly in the techno camp, there are progressive beats and complex rhythms that linger in the mind, ears, and nodding heads of even the most casual listener. The pulsing drive of ‘Fixture’ features deceptively twinkly synths swimming over dark basslines, making for a track that’ll be keeping dancefloors warm all summer. (JMM)

Three years on from their self-released debut, buskers turned would-be arena rockers Rubylux return with the international might of Universal behind them. Unsurprisingly, ‘The World Goes Quiet’ is highly polished and radio friendly, a set of drivetime pop tunes and FM ballads in the vein of The Killers and The Script. However infectious their bright pop tracks are, it’s the transatlantic, Plain White T’s simplicity of ‘Lovers Of New York’ that might give them that surprise mega hit. (SH)

‘Annum’ (Fina Records)

SINGLE: JIPSY MAGIC

‘The World Goes Quiet’ (Luxury-B)

‘Hit The Road’ (Overhead Wires)

EP: TRAAMS

SINGLE: MURDER HE WROTE

EP: US BABY BEAR BONES

The second release on Brighton label Numerology Records takes Murder He Wrote’s sound in a completely different direction from his previous EP for Skint. ‘Magenta’ is a classic throwback to early 90s club house, with echoing samples and an addictive bassline, brought up to date by super-tight production. The single comes with five remixes, most of which are by fellow Brighton producers including Mitch Wade Cole and Lorenz Jacques, who subvert and transform the original. (JMM)

Befitting their mysterious nature, Us Baby Bear Bones’ new release is literally a puzzle, each of the 216 CDs fitting together to create one secret image. So it is that ‘What Starts With A U Ends In An I’ is a multi-faceted enigma, with glittering, fragmented dreampop tracks like ‘Ra(i)n’ and ‘You’ giving no easy readings however prettily constructed and sweetly sung. It’s a strange, self-contained world the trio inhabit, but easy answers are for lightweights. (SH)

Look past that Flower Fairy name and Jipsy Magic are a rather more down to earth party band. Their last two singles suggested a group struggling to recreate their live sound in the studio, but they’re much improved on ‘Hit The Road’, a track that lets their songwriting skills shine through. Yes, it’s a song about touring, but even if you’ve never been stuck in a van with your drummer’s arse for a pillow the road-weary vocal and lightly sprung guitar and bass patterns appeal. (SH)

‘Magenta’ (Numerology Records)

‘Ladders’ (FatCat)

There’s low key releases and then there’s Traams’ clattering FatCat debut, limited to 100 copies. On cassette. At this rate they’ll be pedalling round fans’ houses to hand deliver their album on wax cylinder. The trio deserve a wider hearing than this EP is likely to offer, their punked up motorik powered by insistent, off-kilter bass runs and squalling guitar fuzz. There’s a pop intelligence at work across these five tracks as much as a delight in flexibility and texture. (SH)

‘What Starts With A U Ends In An I’ (Love Thy Neighbour)

ALBUM: MUTE SPEAKER

SINGLE: THE WYTCHES

Mute Speaker’s new album is inspired by Jeff Noon’s 90s sci-fi novel ‘Vurt’ and like the book it’s a weird voyage down twisting club corridors, with unexpected turns and a kaleidoscopic plethora of influences. The 12 tracks are best listened to as one long journey, to appreciate the complex and interwoven samples and themes. There are some cracking standout tracks though – ‘Game Cat’ is a slinky, jazz groove and ‘Skull Shit’ is far more enticing than its name. (JMM)

It’s been mixed fortunes for The Wytches recently, with the splash made by this 7” tempered by the trio’s gear getting nicked in Birmingham. ‘Beehive Queen’ starts out like The Cramps in a coal cellar, all tightly wound garage twang, but quickly wallops into gear with a thundering psych riff and panicked vocal yelping. It’s a filthy surf stumble concealing all manner of sinister subtext, as if a séance has gone awry and the devil’s come to call. Don’t go into the cellar. (SH)

HEADLINERS: The Freestylers DON’T MISS: Hackney Colliery Band, Dub Revolution Timed to coincide with the autumn equinox, Over The Moon mixes a thorough bill of Brighton bands and festival circuit favourites from around the world with a full programme of educational talks and playful workshops. Family orientated and ecologically run, this year’s festival is styling itself as a ‘Circus Of Dreams’, a realm defined by festival-goers’ imaginations. Approach with a creative open mind and you’ll enjoy one of the most diverse eco-festivals around. IN A NUTSHELL: An educational, communal celebration.

GREEN MAN

August 15th – 18th / Black Mountains, Wales / £145 210 miles from Brighton

PAGE 34

Initially founded by Yellow Moon Band’s Jo Bartlett and Danny Hagan (who left the festival a couple of years back), Green Man started out as a small, psychedelic folk affair, predating the boutique festival trend. Now it’s expanded in size and styles to include a mouth-watering set of left-field bands on the smaller stages, but its the unrivalled bill of international music legends that gives Green Man its clout. IN A NUTSHELL: So much more than folk.

TRIBAL EARTH

August 15th – 18th / Laughton, Lewes / £99 29 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Celtech, Duncan Disorderly, Smokey Taps DON’T MISS: Heal The Stand, King Size Slim A long four-days of getting back to nature, Tribal Earth is a small (500 capacity), family focused fest. The music side was still coming together as we went to press and spans the livelier ends of world, folk, dub and psychedelic sounds. There’s also a large programme of around 80 workshops of dance, drumming, healing and music. Keeping a global outlook, Tribal Earth donates its profits to the Pegasus Project charity, helping to house and educate street children in Nepal. IN A NUTSHELL: A safe and educational family space.

TWOTHREEFOUR

August 3rd – 4th / Green Door Store / Free 0 miles from Brighton

HEADLINERS: Special guests TBC DON’T MISS: IYES, Keel Her, Tigercub In a little over two years, the Green Door’s no-nights-off booking policy has seen just about every band in Brighton play. The venue celebrates the support it’s received from the local scene with a free weekend festival at the start of August, welcoming back 22 favourites from the hundreds of acts who’ve passed through its doors. They’re keeping the headliner announcements under wraps for the moment, but expect surprises. IN A NUTSHELL: A free and thorough showcase of the Brighton scene. The new Brighton Live?

SOURCE VIRGINS:

A NIGHT AT THE OPERA WORD BY JAMES KENDALL ILLUSTRATION BY CHLOE BATCHELOR AT CHLOEBATCHELOR.COM

THE REASONS

“I can’t believe you want to go to this, you hated We Will Rock You!” says SOURCE manager Rosie when the idea of going to the opera for SOURCE Virgins is pitched. And it’s true, I like films better than the theatre and I like a slow painful death better than musicals. That’s why I’ve never been. However there’s something very grown up about liking opera – it seems like, if you can persuade yourself to enjoy it, it’s a rubber stamp in the passport of being an adult. But all that wailing. All that ridiculousness. All those braying posh people. Really, life is too short, right? Yet there’s got to be something in it. At £20-£250 a ticket surely there’s going to be some serious effort put in. There are a lot of clever, creative people involved, and it sounds good on the British Airways adverts, if not so much on Britain’s Got Talent. Anyway, after several decades of avoiding opera like the plague, it might be time to embrace this anachronistic art form.

THE EXPERIENCE

Our night at hip opera nightclub Glyndebourne starts off in a very un-adult way by being late. The curtain raises as we race from our car in our finest clothes and we get put in the naughty seats, right in the rafters at the side of the stage. Also we don’t have time to go to the loo first and already need a wee before even the first mouth has warbled in this three and a half hour concert. The opera is Rusalka by Dvořák, a composer I’ve not only heard of, but actually like. Admittedly I fell in love with ‘Serenade In E’ when I discovered a synth version on the soundtrack of a skateboarding video. Like every opera and ballet, Rusalka seems to be something to do with a rich bloke falling in love with some sort of fairy, this time a water sprite. It’s in Czech, which we don’t understand, but things aren’t too hard to follow, mainly because it’s all so visual. Right from the off Rusalka is a feast for the eyes – like Michel Gondry directing The Little Mermaid as a live action Czech animation. It’s more opulent, more extravagant and more interesting than anything we’ve seen on stage before. If Tim Burton went opera this is what he’d do on a good day. It’s rather dark, and the first act is set in a dank pond with lots of creepy tentacles making lots of beautiful movements. Musically it’s not as extreme as you might have been led to believe. The opera-ness isn’t quite as intense in the context – yeah, there’s screaming and wailing but it sort of makes sense, particularly as the music is so lush. From our vantage point in the naughty seats we can see the orchestra pit and it’s fair to say there’s a lot of talent down there. The music they’re playing is beautiful and moving. Even the genre’s biggest detractors

have to admit that there’s something intense and powerful coming from the voices onstage – obviously there’s no microphones and they’re filling the rather sizable room. Even a foghorn like Liam Gallagher would struggle to do that. Thankfully for our attention spans, our bladders and the crick in our necks, there are a couple of intermissions. Throughout the summer season people come with picnics and bottles of something that cost more than £4.99 in the reduced section of Tesco. But the torrential rain means there’s none of that tonight, which is a shame. Glyndebourne has lovely gardens and is built in a style that Kevin McCloud off Grand Designs would say brings the outside inside, with lots of open walls. He probably wouldn’t say that it looks like what would happen if someone turned the Dome into the world’s biggest sauna, but then he’s got more class than we have. It’s a striking, modern space, and not what we’d expected from the opera we’ve seen in the movies. The venue, like the set design and costumes, has moved with the times, even if the music is all olden days. We make sure that we take to our proper seats in plenty of time. “We’ll have to move again for the fat man,” says a clichéd posh woman somewhat startlingly as we wait for act two to begin. When the so-called ‘fat man’ arrives he make up for the mildest of disturbances by reassuring us that we had only missed the worst bit. He’s not even very fat. It’s interesting that the woman felt so put out by his walking down our aisle. Opera crowds are so well behaved. There’s no one taking photos on their phone, nobody gets up to go to the bar halfway through and most importantly no one talks. At all. Not even in the loud bits. These guys know how to put on a gig. Into the second act and it’s all change, coming on like Gosford Park meets Black Swan set at a fancy 90s wedding. It’s less dancy and more sing-talky, so it’s a revelation to discover that there are subtitles running above the stage. For about five minutes we’re happy to know what’s going on but then it becomes clear that opera moves very slowly indeed. Lacking the pace of, say, The Fast And The Furious 6, it transpires that the characters prioritise sounding interesting rather than saying something interesting. Rusalka makes up for this by becoming really quite saucy. Someone pretends a flower is a penis, the maids flash their knickers, and the water sprite king – who fittingly looks like Fish from Marillion (something that we might be alone in noticing) turns up with a massive cock on display. Meanwhile the prince gets a bit rapey and we ponder that if the water sprite girl is so keen that she gets her tail cut off to be with him you’d think she’d be a bit more, you know, up for it. This relationship doesn’t look like it’s going to go the distance, something the third act confirms by shoehorning in a massive downer ending. But rather like porn, the story is kinda beside the point. Opera is about the spectacle, and the otherworldly Rusalka has certainly been that. In the past we’ve talked about repeating the SOURCE Virgins articles, but on acid. If we ever do that, the opera article is going to be excellent.

WAS IT WORTH IT?

At a wallet-worrying £60 – the cost of seeing a band like Parquet Courts 10 times – it wants to be good. And you know what? It is, for a change at the very least. There were times when we were blown away by it. Will we be rushing back? Well so far we haven’t returned after about nine months. Nor have we listened to any opera on CD. But – like skydiving, eating oysters, and anal sex – it’s something you should try once.

STREET STYLE

WORDS AND PHOTO BY JAMES KENDALL

From the way Charlie looks like all of the post-acid Beatles morphed together it should be no surprise that he’s a) in a psychedelic band (Paranoid Travellers check them out), and b) can be frequently found in Liam Gallagher’s Pretty Green emporium. In fact it turns out that he’s manager of the latter. What caught our beady eye with Charlie was how he managed to look like he’s been hanging out with his late 60s/early 70s musical icons like Cream and “1969 era Beatles” without looking like he’s in a costume. “The way I look isn’t authentic,” he admits, “but I guess it’s influenced by listening to all that music.” His modern silhouette is helped by wearing a from-the-era shirt alongside more current items. Ask anyone about their style these days and they’ll tell you they mix “vintage with high street”, when what they really mean is they wear some second hand clothes. But Charlie really does pair the two, and with real class. Jacket by Pretty Green “It’s based on the one that John Lennon wore at the Rock And Roll Circus when he played with The Dirty Mac. I like the fact it looks vintage but it fits like a new jacket.” Shirt, a gift “It was a Christmas present – my girlfriend’s stepdad bought a job lot of 60s shirts. I’m a big fan of paisley and I like how slim it is in the body. And it’s got a big collar – too many shirts these days have got tiny collars.” Belt by Calvin Klein “I bought it in a charity shop. The leather looks quite old, so that’s quite nice, and it’s got two prongs. I always look for a big buckle.” Jeans from charity shop “I either go one of two ways. If I get a straight legged pair of jeans I don’t want them to cling to my legs like drainpipes, I just want them straight all the way down, a bit long in the leg so I can roll them up. Or I get bootcut or flared jeans.” Shoes by Pretty Green “They’ve got a crepe sole and I like how they’re in between a smart shoe and a trainer. They’re a casual shoe you wear on a day to day basis or you can smarten them up with the rest of your outfit.”

UNSUNG HERO

100 PEOPLE WHO MAKE BRIGHTON WHAT IT IS NO. 42 ANDY ROSSITER WORDS BY STUART HUGGETT PHOTO BY JAMES KENDALL

Andy Rossiter promotes gigs with the Love Thy Neighbour collective, whose label has released music by Abi Wade and Us Baby Bear Bones. Having worked at the Freebutt before its closure, he’s now events booker at The Hope and Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar. When did you start Love Thy Neighbour? When the Freebutt got shut down in 2010, I instantly had zero income, so I went off and drove Esben And The Witch on tour around America. I was considering giving up promoting completely but then I got offered this band, Rural Alberta Advantage from Canada. I thought, yeah I’ll put them on and it started from there. Booking-wise, the Freebutt was essentially me and Alex from One Inch Badge. I used my contacts from back then for Love Thy Neighbour, then you pick up on new bands and music you really like and want to get involved in. Who else is involved? There’s just two of us really. For the label it’s myself and Dan from Esben And The Witch, then everything else on the management and promotions side is just me. Dan and I are both from Southampton originally so I’d actually known him for about 10 years. We’d always said we wanted to start a label, then we’ve discovered Abi Wade and thought this is the act we’ll set one up with. I think Love Thy Neighbour is mainly a grass roots, EP label. We see it as a stepping stone to try and get acts onto labels who’ve got more power and money to release their albums. What does your work at The Hope and Sticky Mike’s entail? There’s me and a guy called Chris, who used to be in Echo Rain, and we book both venues. Most of the shows are hired so it’s a case of weeding out the rubbish and trying to get the good stuff in there. They both sit differently in the Brighton music scene: The Hope’s more the place where a lot of touring bands play their first Brighton show and Sticky Mike’s seems to have carved a niche for local bands and late night rock shows. Having said that, Sticky Mike’s is getting more and more touring bands as their reputation gets better, so it’s going really well.

SECRET EATER

WARUNG TUJUH Pool Valley (01273) 720784 Mon–Sun 12–4pm, 6–11pm

THE PLACE It’s easy to get sucked into having Thai when you have an urge for Asian food, and of course there’s nothing wrong with a green/red/blue curry. But the world’s largest continent has quite obviously got much more to offer than that. Warung Tujuh is an authentic Indonesian eaterie, the first half of the name referring to the street food stalls popular over there. But the restaurant is nothing like a stall, instead having simple, stylish décor.

THE MEAL The cut-price lunch menu offers two dishes for £7, from which we select a sate daging starter – small charcoal grilled beef pieces on a skewer – which sits in a drizzle of soy with a side bowl of peanut sauce. The nasi goreng looks like an unprepossessing upturned bowl of rice, but once split open it reveals a well stuffed interior of large, juicy prawns, soft chicken pieces and thinly sliced veg. Spicy enough to leave a notable aftertaste, it’s addictive and extremely filling. Also from the cheap menu we have soto ayam, a chicken noodle soup that is fresh and zingy and with sliced egg, beansprouts, vermicelli noodles and some interesting ingredients we don’t recognise. The nasi campur tasting plate (£11.50) is huge, with lots of different flavours working together. The mild vegetable broth in the centre balances the tangy chilli sauce of the fried chicken fillet. There’s also salad, more creamy vegetable dishes and beef skewers. As we don’t want the satay sauce they make us a delicious thick soya dip for them. One of these dishes plus a starter will challenge even the greediest of diners. THE VERDICT You really can’t argue with the lunchtime set menu for value, and the platter was equally full of food for the money. With lots of fresh ingredients, and many tastes, both new and familiar, Warung Tujuh is a great place to explore a lesser known cuisine. WERE WE SUSSED? The waitress thought she recognised us, though she wasn’t sure where from, and was stationed right by our table while we tried to surreptitiously take photos with our oversized DSLR. So maybe sussed.

BEN WHEATLEY

SIGHTSEERS’ DIRECTOR TAKES A TRIP BACK TO THE CIVIL WAR WORDS BY STUART HUGGETT PHOTO BY DEAN ROGERS Ben Wheatley is the acclaimed director of Down Terrace (shot in Brighton, where he lives with partner and scriptwriter Amy Jump), Kill List and Sightseers. His new film A Field In England stars regular collaborator Michael Smiley (Spaced), Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh) and Reece Shearsmith (The League Of Gentlemen) in a 17th century tale of mushrooms and madness.

people’s positions changing dramatically. A lot of the things that we see now, even down to how the banks work, were set up in the Civil War. We’re still reaping the influence of it now, with the recession. Stuff that was set up at that point is built into the system. So I think the Civil War looms heavily over everything in the western world, cos then you get France and America and it’s the beginning of democracy pretty much. In terms of the UK it’s probably that and the Industrial Revolution that are the most important and influential things that have happened.

“WE’RE STILL REAPING THE INFLUENCE OF THE CIVIL WAR NOW, WITH THE RECESSION”

Your film opens at cinemas on Fri 5th, with its TV broadcast (on Film4), DVD, VOD and download appearance happening on the same day. Why do this all at once? There’s a certain amount of screens in the UK so if you’re a big release maybe you can do 400, 500 screens. Everyone in Britain can get to see your film. But if you’re a film like A Field In England and you’ve got on in 10 screens, it doesn’t matter how good your press is because if people can’t get to a cinema near them within 10 or 20 minutes then they’re not going to go. They can’t see the film so your audience is totally limited at that point. By the time the DVD comes out, the initial press burst you get for a movie is lost, so then you have to do more, and at the end of that process it goes on telly. What you want for a small film is that word of mouth and that could be generated by the TV screening, so if you do it all at the start you’ve got more chance of all those different things feeding off each other. Where did the idea of the film come from? We’d been knocking it about for 10 years. Not this particular story, just a general idea that it’s going to be set in the English Civil War. What was attractive about that period is this idea of Britain totally changing and becoming radical and lots of different

PAGE 42

Which isn’t how schools teach British history. No, it’s weird isn’t it? There’s something very uncool about Cromwell, it could be something as boring as the fact that he’s got a wart, but people just don’t want to talk about it. That’s why I really like folk music. In the 70s and 80s there was a real prejudice against it, “Oh it’s not very good,’ but actually it’s the basic building blocks of our culture. It’s ignored because people think new things are always better but if you’ve not got any context about where you come from you can’t really understand where you are.

There are always pagan, primitive or folk elements to your films. Increasingly I think about what I would have been like 100 years ago, or 200 or a thousand. The person that I am probably wouldn’t have been much different really, and what’s interesting is how you would react to those times. If we’re the most successful point in our family, the sum total of all that DNA action over all that period, being born again and again and again, have we changed massively each time? I think that’s why I have this harking back to the past in my films because the present day isn’t as far in the future as we imagine. We’re just doing the same thing WHERE: Duke’s At Komedia again and again and the names change and WHEN: Fri 5th everyone swaps round the seats but it’s not WEB: afieldinengland.com actually any different to what it would’ve been hundreds of years ago.

SIX OF THE BEST

DAFT PUNK LOST CLASSICS WORDS BY JAMES KENDALL ILLUSTRATION BY CRAIG ROBINSON AT CRAIGROBINSON.COM

So ‘Get Lucky’ is your favourite song of the year, you’ve bought the Daft Punk albums (and then taken ‘Human After All’ back to the shop to swap it for ‘Daft Club’), but where next? Here are six lesser-known tracks from Bangalter and Guy-Man from their early, arguably best, years.

THOMAS BANGALTER ‘Spinal Scratch’ (1996)

Released the same year as Daft Punk’s breakthrough track ‘Da Funk’, Thomas Bangalter clearly had so much creative energy as the pair readied their debut LP. There’s a sense of fun to ‘Spinal Scratch’, Bangalter nails a relentless groove but throws a lot of silly little tricks in (DJ scratching noises, half beat breakdowns) to keep things interesting. It’s the equal of any of the harder, noisier tracks on ‘Homework’ but a much easier listen.

I:CUBE

‘Disco Cubizm (Daft Punk Remix)’ (1996)

They haven’t done many remixes considering their long history through the golden years of dance music, but apart from their Franz Ferdinand ‘Take Me Out’ miss, Daft Punk have knocked them pretty much out the park. ‘Mothership Reconnection’ and Gabrielle’s ‘Forget About The World’ are on ‘Daft Club’, leaving this equally great, melodically repetitive piece of techdisco to dig from the crates. It slows the rather banging original down until the piano – nicked and looped from The Crusaders’ ‘Streetlife’ – is more in line with its original tempo and that disco swing is back.

THOMAS BANGALTER ‘Club Soda’ (1998)

A simple piece of 90s filter disco, ‘Club Soda’ is rather more refreshing than the gritty, jacking stuff usually found on Bangalter’s ‘Tracks On Da Rocks’ 12”s. A sliver of an old disco guitar riff is pitched right down to a very ‘now’ 120bpm for a sexy minimal groove. Warm and euphoric, it should find favour

PAGE 54

with anyone that liked ‘Get Lucky’. Like most of the stuff on Bangalter’s peerless Roulé imprint, this is firmly made for club play but is sexy and melodic enough to groove around your bedroom to.

ALAN BRAXE

‘Vertigo (Virgo Edit)’ (1997)

Although Braxe would later have the smash of 2000 with ‘Intro’, this raw, stuttered, clattering track needed Thomas Bangalter’s edit – using just a few seconds of the original – for it to rule the clubs. It gets more than halfway through before things kick in, showing how confident Bangalter was as a producer right from the get go. A stomping kick drum and disco strings turned techno – this took DJ Sneak’s cut up disco blueprint to the absolute jacking limit. Within a year Bangalter would leave that sound behind behind forever.

TOGETHER

‘Together’ (2000)

Before turning up on ‘Random Access Memories’ as the co-producer of ‘Contact’, DJ Falcon had some previous form with Bangalter. As well as releasing tracks on Roulé, the two worked on a couple of Ibiza smashes. First up was a self-titled single with a repetitive vocal refrain and fat, warm bassline that gave hints to the softer, 80s style of ‘Discovery’. Both this and the proto-electro house of ‘So Much Love To Give’ could have been chart hits but the pair decided to release them as 12” only singles. Oh, the old days.

LE KNIGHT CLUB

‘Rhumba’ (2002)

There’s long been an assumption that Bangalter is the talent behind Daft Punk, and certainly he’s got more classic solo tracks to his name (‘Music Sounds Better With You’ anyone?). But Guy-Man’s collaborations with Eric Chedeville had a decent run in the late 90s too, mostly with smooth, filtered disco cut ups. They may be low on ambition and ideas compared to Bangalter, but there’s the same lush feel as ‘Discovery’ or ‘RAM’, especially on this track, one of their last – all jaunty synth riffs and latin percussion.
