cean Colour Scene's outstanding efforts left us crying out fo r more on .,.,_..._....__ _ _ _ _ _ ___, Sunday night. After successfully winding up the crowd with the Real People, their impressive support band , the beautiful boys themselves arrived for an hour of great music. (Can you tell I enjoyed it?!) An interesting addition to the set-list was the Beatles' hit Day Tripper which went down extremely wel l, followed by a multitude of songs from Moseley Shoals, including renditions of 40 Past Midnight , it's My Shadow, and the all-time favourite The Riverboat Song. And how many of you noticed Oscar Harrison winding his way through the crowd during The Real People? How could you miss hi m with that great hat he had on?! A seriously good gig. Ocean Colour Scene are undoubtedly set for even bigger and better things. Gemma Goodson (songwriter, vocalist, guitarist and general top bloke) they clearly have a pricelessly talented frontman. This is reflected in the spectacle of their songs Magic Sponge and Sleep Freak which literally blew heads off. There is, however, another side to Heavy Stereo; Cartoon Moon and Mouse in a Hole show the more genteel, caring side to the band. They pull off both styles with prolific ease showing just how quality their package is. The finale Smiler leaves the crowd miles in the air and , put simply, it's not just rock 'n' roll but rock 'n' roll with edge! There were commendable performances too from the Ant Hill Mob and especially The Diggers who rose above the disinterested crowd noise to play a very professional set. Michael Millar

eavy Stereo are difficult. They've rejected their so-called Britpop counterparts' philosophy by simply choosing influences such as The Ramones, Blondie and The Ronnettes, icons not of the fashionable 60s but of the forgotten 70s. Having been labelled "the band Creation signed after Oasis" they have finally, through four blistering singles and their debut album , managed to break free of such a constraint. As the set opener Chinese Burn kicks in, everyon e is taken with the sheer intensity of their sound , if not their unmistakable rhythm. The band has a distinct style and in Gem I ••

nJ""""'" talks techno with the best musical

thing to come out ol Belgium since the Smurls. And makes sure he doesn't mention them lanis Morissette?! I'm confused. I'd expected a big techno star to conform to all the stereotypes: reticent, untalkative, and desperate not to be seen in any way 'un-underground'. I certainly didn't expect this. "Yeah, I'd love to remix Alanis Morissette if she was up for it. I just bought her album and I really like it!" Well that's my preconceptions shattered. Such is the way with CJ Bolland . He may be one of techno's leading lights, but he's also chatty, friendly, and free of any spoilt-bratness that his reputation may lead you to expect. What reputation? Trailblazing producer, globetrotting DJ, and remixer-extraordinaire, that's what. Is there anything that CJ Bolland doesn't do well?! "Flying. I have a real fear of flying." Hmm, this must be a bit of a problem in your line of work. "Well yeah, but I have to do it - I couldn't do my job otherwise! Call it suffering for my art if you like!" Well, the suffering has probably been worth it. You may have heard CJ's latest single, Sugar Is Sweeter, when it exploded into the charts recently. Combining big beats, a throbbing bassline, and vocals caught between angelic and psychotic, it caught flak in certain quarters for its alleged resemblance to a certain Prodigy song. Guilty as charged? "Nah, it sounds nothing like Poison! Someone told them that it sounded similar, so they got it checked out by some musicologists, who found nothing. They were just trying to pull a fast one, and it didn't work." The British public obviously shared his view, buying enough copies of Sugar Is Sweeter to send it to Number 11, which CJ admits was totally unexpected. The album is expected to go platinum when it comes out. With all this success, I ask if he's worried about being accused of selling out. "Not at all. The album's not commercialised in the least. it's pure CJ Bolland, which you can't pigeonhole. it's a real mish-mash of stuff." He's right too, for the one thing The Analogue Theatre is not is a bland collection of 4/4 pounding techno workouts. it's not afraid to take in a variety of styles, whether it be chopping breakbeats, electro-funk, or eerie spoken-word samples. To promote the album, CJ is touring the country with a live show, playing mainly rock venues rather than clubs. Is that a brave move? "it's what we want to do. it's a step on the road to playing bigger venues, which is where we wanna be." With these bigger venues set to include Glastonbury and Phoenix next year, plenty of people should have a chance to see CJ live, which he is excited about. This year has already included show-stealing performances at Tribal Gathering and Phoenix, where he went on directly before the Prodigy. So what would he say to people here who are thinking about checking him out? "Come along! It'll be a great gig. Oh, and lay off the drugs - you can enjoy my music without being smashed out of your face on pills." Kids, just say yes, to CJ Bolland.

LIVE REVIEW CLUB RUMBLE UEA LCR Saturday Oct 5 f you're looking for a night out, and you want to jump up and down to a monotonous beat, look no further than Club Rumble. Bodies were r.eating up as the night wore away, and the DJs knew exactly what was required. They delivered just what was needed but I don't think the crowd were that

I

bothered. lt seemed as if most people were bopping just to pull, and by the stroke of midnight anyone would do. By this stage I decided to take a walk to the other side, where Milky Lunch were throwing out House and Garage tunes left, right and centre. This was easier to 'swing your pants' to, but as the saying about jungle goes, you've got to be on something to survive a whole night! The actual event was geared more toward locals than students, leading to a situation where most of the people

attending were not people you knew! Of course, the obvious advantage of this was that you <..-ould let yourself go and dance as badly as you wanted without fear of reproof! Put it this way: girls like dancing and I needed no better excuse to let my hair down. Trust me, and take my route to an enjoyable night out: 1) Drink at the student bar (it's cheaper), then 2) Enter the jungle ring, and 3) Enjoy!

DAVID BOWIE & A GUY CALLED GERALD Telling Lies/ 7" av1d Bowie's career has been built on transition but even the cool Ziggy Stardust would have admitted that pop stars of a certain age can only evolve so far! Telling Lies , Bowie"s collaboration with A Guy Called Gerald has a weak and watery drum 'n' bass line that even Everything But The Girl wou ld have the Intell igence to throw out. Bowie's fut1le attempt to leave his own 1mprint on the 90s zeitgeist, evidenced by former collaborations with Leftfield and Brian Eno, IS mocked by the distinct psychedelic feel of this s1ngle, recalling poor out takes of Revolver rather than the progression of Leftism or Music For The Jilted Generation . Many, as I myself d1d , wâ&#x20AC;˘. look forward to I sten1ng to Telling Lies but as w1th The Beatles Free As A Bird and the recent rerelease of The Who's My Generation , they will be greatly disappointed. Which self-respecting clubber in 1996 would dance to this? Phi/ Parker

ONI! TRUI! PARKER ub le-Cunt/ 7" s far as debut singles go, One True Parker's Bubble-Gum is technically flawless. Yet this is hardly surpnsing . This jungle track contains so little substance that anyone with a cheap drum machine from Argas could recreate it with ease. The track begins promisingly but fails to develop and continues right to the end with virtually no variation. Similarly, the lyrics are uninsp1nng, although perhaps I'm missing some deeper meaning: "My life has just begun .. . bubble-gum." With the Creation promotional machine behind her, One True Parker may do as well as their label-mates Oas1s.

SPICE 'N' VICE! Speaking of those tearaway temptresses the Spice Girls, they've been up to their usual tricks of scaring all and sundry during their jaunts abroad Jas Mann of Babylon Zoo happened to be sharing a hotel with them during a recent promotional tour, and witnessed at first hand their re1gn of terror. "They were running around the corridors naked - I saw everything!" He claims. Dirty old Mann. "They were scandalising all the bus1nessmen and scaring small children!" And was our Jas shocked? Did he deplore their disgusting and depraved behaviour? ''Well I d1dn't mind ," was his s1mple reply.

PETER'S THE CK ONE! There's a rumour going around at the moment that Peter Andre (he of the rather finely honed chest) is soon to be modelling various garments of underwear for snooty designer Calvin Klein. Apparently, Pate's body is ideal for showing off all those gorgeous tight grey 'smalls' that do make a man look so damn horny .. . ahem . But, sad to say, for the moment it remains a rumour, with all parties involved saying things are "only in development". Keep those eyes focused on a billboard near you! Cya!

PUN LOVIN' CRIMINALS The Pun Lovln' CPintlnals/ 7'' could be all wrong about this, but I take it from the name and the crime obsessed lyrics of this lot that they are, like, ironic that they are having a laugh. If, unusual though it would be, I am wrong and they really are Uzi-toting dope-addled gangsta types (hello, the entire Death Row roster) then I apologise unreservedly.

I

4 THE EVENT, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1996

In truth, though , these false associations probably do The Fun Lovin' Criminals a disservice as they are patently making no attempt musically to be a hard-core rap band. Rather, they blend the most listener friendly elements of pop-rock and pop-rap, kind of like House Of Pain with brains, or the

Beastie Boys with pop nous. And while not actually criminals they have obviously watched enough cop movies in their plush Manhattan apartments to make their rather fine rhymes sound as though they're down on the street. Cool , man. David Jenklnâ&#x20AC;˘

t is a universally acknowledged truth that extensive listening to Brad Roberts' vocals-over-gravel will lead to anal leakage. He still takes a pint of sand with his cornflakes. Mmm, a one-track album with 12 futile chord-changes. Have I sold it to you yet? Despite my adoration for the laid-back and chocolatey God Shuffled His Feet, the Dumms (when you've known them as long as I have ... ) have always been one of those combos whose second album is hard to imagine. The tracks are woefully indistinguishable and are all too pondering and downbeat. There is nothing here to match the rocktest of Afternoons And Coffee-Spoons, the melancholy lyrics of which, coupled with an optimistic tune, makes us momentarily take stock. But Brad's not clever, he's not smart. He's lost his appealing aberration and the ballads are banal. They may not be made of yellow plastic but, hey, they could still be in a pile-up. And they admit to themselves that toasters are dangerous, so here's hoping. There is something ironically appealing about the preoccupation with mortality. Mmm. James Phi/lips

sea/ LP

he first thing that must be said about this LP is that it defies description. Having said that, a definition should be attempted. The overall feeling of the album is not a particularly jolly one; the dark, chaotic and urgent mood created in Guilty Pleasures is typical. However, the mood is occasionally lifted with more catchy and amusing pieces such as Little Arithmetics and the fantastic Supermarketsong (no, it's not about Dale Winton's show!) In short therefore, In a Bar, Under The Sea is a thoroughly enjoyable album. The wide range of the musical styles utilised by Deus (Smashing Pumpkins, Whale and Tricky were all there) are merged to produce a unique and diverse sound of their own. With the result being a truly interesting yet cool album, filled with melodic, atmospheric, psychedelic, happy, sad, mellow, mad tunes. This album should come as a relief to anyone disillusioned with the current craze for 'Noelrock'. So if that's you, BUY IT! Kate d'Este Hosre

less than labyrinthine, the focus of the film falls instead on Keitel's interpretation of the corrupt lieutenant as he steals drugs from murder scenes, masturbates in front of teenage girls, and indulges in copious interfaces of the syringe-vein variety. Surely one of his bravest ever performances. Keitel's collaboration with director Abet Ferrara (responsible for such cult items as King of New York and MS.45) means we also get plentiful themes of Catholic guilt, alienation and redemption thrown in. All this may sound unappealing - and if you loved Forrest Gump then it probably does - but if you're fond of the nitty-gritty and have a strong stomach , you have a treat in store.

ollowing the drama and excitement of Robin Hood and Waterworld , what is everyone's favou rite aii-American romantic hero Kevin Costner going to do next? Is he rescuing the planet from aliens? Discovering the cure to a plague that will wipe out all of humankind, perhaps? Nope, he's playing golf. Costner swaps his bow and arrow and feathered cap for a nine iron and some dodgy trousers to star as an immensely talented golfer whose addiction to risk and recklessness has so far stranded him in obscurity. Currently an employee at a golf course he used to own , but then foolishly lost in a bet, his character, Roy McAvoy, meets and becomes attracted to a professional golfer's girlfriend. Somehow he gets it into his head that the best way to impress her would be to win the US Open, humiliating the boyfriend and getting the girl. Also featuring Don Johnson (of Miami Vice fame) as Costner's smarmy and insincere golfing rival and Rene Russo (Outbreak, Get Shorty) as the scatterbrained psychologist caught in a love triangle, Costner scores a hole-inone with this Bull Durham style romantic comedy. All in all, if you 're too lazy to play 18 holes, then give this a putt, its sure to be more interesting than watching four hours of golf on the telly. John Spacey

Costner is a Hollywood star who possesses Multi-oscar winning epic in which cool-cat Kostner the maturity and sophistication that appeals to your mother, but still does the foxtrot with a canine, E-dam it... what a radiates enough boyish charm to be labelled a heart- throb. guy! Costner like most actors came from an unremarkable background and like other stars, would probably like to forget his first few parts. His screen The Bodyguard debut was made in The Big Chill in which he had the difficult job of What would Whitney have done without Kevin playing a corpse in only one scene. This was followed by a role in the protecting her from a mysterious stalker, what a raunchy softcore porn-flick Sizzle Beach USA. lt was only after years of bit man, what a hero ....what a wuss! characters and background roles that Costner was to achieve any real success. Born in California on 18th January 1955, Costner went on to attend California State Out University in Fullerton. In 1978 he graduated and married Cindy Silva, who he has only Top military mastermind deceives them all and recently divorced. Though currently rumoured to be dating Elle MacPherson he remains in turns out to be the Russian spy-guy, hardly contact with his three children: Annie, Lily and Joe, who has managed to land a part in his anything even remotely cheesy about this. Dad's new movie. After his almost obligatory years as a struggling actor from 1987 the actor's fortunes began to look upwards. The Untouchables saw Kevin as ,....--------------------------------. lead character Elliot Ness in a prohibition gangster movie, joined by an impressive ensemble cast that T included Sean Connery. This was followed later in the same year by the film No Way Out which as well as casting Costner as Russian spy (a goodguy spy though, surprise-surprise} also involved some raunchy limousine scenes. In the next two years came the two baseball films Bull Durham and then as farmer Ray Kinsella in the excellent Field of Dreams. Now established in Tinsel-town as a big league star, Costner took a major gamble and on a shoestring budget produced, directed and stared in the four hour long Pro-native American epic Dances with Wolves. Originally referred to as "Costner's folly" or "Kevin's Gate", the ambitioii.Js project for Costner reaped great awards in the form of numerous Oscars, these included ones for Best Film and Best Director. These have no doubt made attractive additions to the mantelpiece of the stars Hollywood home. Following a film as phenomenally successful as Wolves proved to be quite a challenge. it's thought that Alan 8ickman, as the devilish Sheriff of ~eat Nottingham, stole the show from him in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. Despite this, Kevin did then have commercial success with both JFK and The Bodyguard in which Costner played Frank Farmer along with Whitney Houston in her screen debut. J Success took another tu m for the worse with the box office failures of A Perfect World, despite an excellent performance by our Kev', Wyatt Earp and The War. What Costner needed was a big movie. Big however was to become a fateful word, the budget for Waterworld was BIG, in excess of $1 00 million. Coupled with set disasters, / creative clashes and delays the film looked doomed to sink. Hopefully with not having to direct or produce his newest film, will regain some of his former success. Costner says "Tin Cup • took the pressure off me." This romantic comedy, also starring Don Johnson and Rene Russo, is set against the backdrop of golfing world. Costner himself has a rather interesting approach to the sporting nature of the film "Golf is like sex, ---~ -- because you can enjoy it even if you're not good at it." Somehow I expect that even after his rollercoaster career there 92POTTERGATE,NOR~CH are still a couple of million women who wouldn't mind him demonstrating whether or not the statement is true ... ~

ifth grade seems to be g~tting more and more exciting. Firstly, a ten-year old can now expect to have a top mum who can cook everything and play space games, have loads of cool toys, and friends who have a tree-house that is kitted out better than any student lounge. The twist to this tale is that Jack is played by a hairy man old enough to be your father (Robin Williams) who is unfortunately growing at four times the normal rate due to a freak medical condition.

This poor excuse for a documentary heaves with inane sentences like these, along with ear-splitting gun fire, screeching cars, black balaclavas and bellowing rednecks, all put to a growling 'soundtrack'. The viewer is guided through a series of deadly training procedures, which potential SAS soldiers must endure before passing the test (or rather war game) to become fully fledged fighters. The first hour (I had to switch off half-way through before the rot set in) depicts graphic, even perverse violence including one scene where a soldier is trapped into a metal cage the size of a dog kennel whilst the others thrash a corrugated Iron sheet over his head.

f sitting back and soaking up a pleasant film was what you had in mind, then this isn't the vid for you. Terry Gilliam's tale of a plagueridden future demands your constant attention if you're to make any sense of the plot - but don't give up: everything ties up with an exciting twist at the end. Bruce Willis plays "volunteer" James Cole, sent from the future to find a pure form of the virus which has wiped out 99% of human life on earth by the year 2035. The notorious Army of the Twelve Monkeys (the black sheep of the PG Tips family), prime suspects in the creation of this dreaded lurgy, are led by Brad Pitt who gives a star performance as a big slice of crusading fruitcake. Cole becomes entangled in a world of surreal detective work which provides us with some fantastic images and clever (if sometimes puzzling) concepts. Although the telly doesn't bring the fantastic visuals home with as much impact as the big screen, Twelve Monkeys is definitely worth a watch, especially if you want to see Brad Pitt completely off his rocker.

supported by wonderful parents and an intellectual teacher (Bill Cosby). This is all very well, but who is this film aimed at? The humour and seriousness of the medical condition are directed at adults, but the weak plot and childsplay are directed at the kiddie in you. A bit silly really. But this doesn't mean that Jack is unpleasant to watch, rather it is good entertainment with some cute bits thrown in that will plunge you into being a sticky ten year old yourself. Remember falling for your teacher? Remember grazing your knee? Well then Jack's got it all and more. The moral is to make the most of your school days and be good to your friends. If you do that, then the rest will be easy. Jane Kirby

To get up, have Mrs Spoon pack his sarnies and go off to the moon every morning with Egbert, leaving his wife at home, was an admirable thing to do, especially as he didn't travel in a hi-tech NASA rocket. Mr Spoon (was his first name Wooden?) owned a fantastic baked bean tin which served him well over the years, getting him safely to the moon and back. Being a cautious piece of cutlery, Mr Spoon always checked out the moon before he went through his telescope. Once on the moon, he would check that Mrs. Spoon was alright (and not being naughty with Mr Fork) and then explored the craters looking for fun , yet educational stuff to teach the viewers. But it wasn't all work, work, work as Mr. Spoon always returned home, to spend some quality time with Mrs Spoon before the next episode when he would go once again to the big, yellow button in the sky.

ost of you have probably never been to the Sewell Barn Theatre, indeed, I hadn't until last week when I went along to review Wait Until Dark. This converted barn which is home to its own theatre company must be one of Norwich's hidden treasures. Perfectly suited to the barn's intimate atmosphere, Wait Until Dark is a frightening play of suspense, thriller and murder. Rhett Davies, the director, cast the play wonderfully from the Company's actors. The actors portraying the psychotic murderer and the courageous blind wife especially shone out. The next production at the Sewell Barn Theatre will be Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, taking place in December. As the programme for the rest of this season is equally appealing, this atmospheric little theatre should be well orth a visit. Kate Crockett

RETURN TO THE FORBIDDEN PLANET Theatre Royal et 7- 12 t was not so long ago that the spectacular Rocky Horror Show had the Theatre Royal audience rocking and thrusting their hips all over the place , and now it's happening all over again . Return to the Forbidden Planet touched down in Norwich last week with a whole host of lavish costumes, 50s hit songs and Gerry Anderson explosions . The show, which is based loosely on Shakespeare's The Tempest, has an amazingly talented cast who play no less than five instruments each and can all sing brilliantly (sickening isn't it) . One of the highlights of the show was the rotation of the characters between the two drum kits, numerous electric guitars, and brass instruments. Just to top it all off, the audience participation needed to "reverse polarity" was characteristically silly. If you missed this opportunity to see Shakespeare's forgotten rock and roll masterpiece then bad luck, the show doesn't return to Kate Crockett earth until the year 2000.

ollowing up William Gibson's triumphant start to this year's Literary Festival must have been a daunting task, yet Irish novelist, playwright and short story writer Edna O'Brien, rose to the challenge and proved that futuristic cyberpunk trendiness is all very well, but you can't beat a good old fashioned story. Reading from her latest novel Down by the River, O'Brien read with real passion and involvement, allowing the poetic and lyrical quality of her writing to really shine through. O'Brien proved to be as charming and elegant in person as she is in prose, and appeared to be enjoying herself almost as much as the captivated audience. She later fielded questions dealing with her Catholic upbringing, writing methods, and the state of Irish fiction, before leaving to thunderous applause for the traditional book-signing. Richard

No 6: Leo Tolstov Best Known Works: Anna Karenin, War and Peace, The Cossacks and Resu"ection Interesting Fact: Despite the moral neutrality and compassion of novels such as Anna Karenin, later in life Tolstoy went on to write polemical Christian essays on art in which he claimed that for art to be valid it must be morally valuable (by promoting Christian values). This, of course, meant his own books had no value. Doh! Discredit your whole life's work why don't you, Leo.

Intelligent things to say about Tolstoy: An enigma wrapped up in a mystery. As a novelist Tolstoy painted complex, compassionate characters whose greatness lay in their common failings. As an aesthetic essayist and religious zealot, he presented a narrow, unconvincing view of life and art which more than often hinted at religious intolerance. Pedantic things to say about Tolstoy: Hmm. Surely the surname in Russian reflects gender. This being the case, Anna Karenin should have been titled "Ann a Karenina". Things to avoid saying about Tolstoy: 'Wasn't he the Bolshevik who had an axe buried in his head in Mexico?' If he were alive today he would be: (a) A part of the moral-majority; (b) leader of America's Christian Coalition; (c) Somebody who has a picture of a fish on the back of their car.

he autumn literary season at UEA has begun with a senes of talks by wnters who liVe and work at UEA On Monday night 1t was the tum of rnternational scholar and critiC of womens' writing professor Janet Todd, publicising her new book The Secret Ufe of Aphra Behn. The biography cornbrnes both narrative and fact, givrng not only a story of the life of a woman who shrouded herself In secrecy, but a p1cture of the culture of the restoration perrod, a period that Behn Is often said to eulogise. Publtshmg 1n the 1670s, Behn's work was at e forefront of the sexual frisson wh1ch a o •.=· th. ough the arrival of the female b on the stage. The biography explores ideals of a writer born 1nto lower classes w1th a desire for the glamour and respect of a courtly hfe but who rema1n an entertainer of the anstocracy.

s a philosophy student, it is always gratifying to find a vocationally tenable use for my degree. In The Thought Gang, Tibor Fischer offers one career alternative that may not immediately have come to mind - armed robbery. The protagonist and narrator, a disillusioned Philosophy lecturer with an irreverent way with language, turns to armed-robbery whilst on the run in France. Having "gone pro" in "the philosophy biz", Eddie Coffin decides that material wealth really is all it's cracked up to be, and begins to misappropriate scholarship funds. The result is an enforced exile in France, where the unlikely philosophy lecturer meets an even more unlikely armed robber- a one armed, arthritic Frenchman with an unfair share of prosthetic limbs. The ensuing partnership makes for a highly entertaining read, and Tibor Fischer confirms something I've thought for a long time: the only really practical application for Seth Levlne philosophy is comedy.
