Do you like cheese? Yes I love cheese, cheese is wicked. Money or music? Money, every band is in it for the money you need it to live. People expect us to be really rich but we’re not. We need the money to survive on tour. Any band that says their in it for the music is lying. Did you do music at school for GCSE? Ha-ha, well I was actually banned from doing music at school… Ha. I was a good boy at school, I did music.

What do you think of Butserfest this year? It’s good! We have nothing like this where we come from! What inspired you to be in a band? Just growing up watching live music, being into metal. Do you have any other aspirations? If we can make a living and play live to our fans and still continue our lives. Just to make people happy especially to loved ones, look out for the family, then that’s all we really want.

How’d you all meet? Mostly school friends, also met at college, the random clique - school band, and the rest is history. Any advice for young bands? Just get out and do it! Don’t just talk about doing it, get out, 100% full on. There is no easy route. Brief on the music business? It’s like a reputation, don’t jeopardize it. The entertainment labels mainly get the money from all the advertisements and merchandise.

WE ARE THE OCEAN by Kirstie Melton-Scott & lisa brown Sheep or ducks? Ducks. How did you guys meet? Through other friends. What do you think of Butserfest? I really like it, it’s cool. How’d you come up with the name? It was an email addressee, which sounded cool.

Best place you’ve performed? At the Boardmasters festival, it was on a beach and you could see the sundown and there were surfers. It was just really cool. Download was pretty good, and Sheffield.

Ultimate direction Just to keep going, make tours go international, and play live at bigger venues. Any last words? Thank you for having us!

We Push Buttons Jackson, Pauley, Dave

by Becca Coombes & Danielle Woodford What is your all time favourite dance move?  Jackson: The tazor. I made it up myself! (See video on our website) Pauley: Reverse park, hand behind the passenger seat and drive. Dave: Lawnmower What would your dream video be?   I think it would have to be a proper big shoot. I think we would have to take the micky out of big celebrity videos.

If you were an animal what would you be? Jackson: Hedgehog. Pauley: Some sort of big cat, probably a panther. Dave: Golden Retriever. Who in the band has the worst habits? Dave! He just generally winds everyone up! What’s the atmosphere like just before you go on stage?   Dave: I always need to pee. Jackson: Ha-ha! We were dancing to the bands on before us and were very excited! So what are your general opinions on Busterfest? Awesome! It’s very well organised, and the morals are very good with the alcohol and drug free theme. It’s a very good idea!

What’s your favourite pudding? Jackson: My Nan’s lemon meringue pie. Pauley: My Nan’s apple crumble. Dave: You can’t beat a good cheesecake. Who are your influences? R Kelly. No seriously! We all have different tastes but if we are all in the car together we just whack on a bit of R Kelly and everyone is happy! How would you describe your sound? Pushmoshfun!

The Light Divided Dxn, Chrxs, Dxnny, Dxve by Beccx & Dxni

Beccx & Dxni: Where does your band name come from? Chrxs: The band name came from a lyric in a Placebo song “Allergic (To Thoughts Of Mother Earth)“, and I only know one person who recognised this. It has nothing to do with the album “A City By the Light Divided” by Thursday. I was writing down a load of words and lyrics from songs that I was listening to. My friend Kris saw this and thought The Light Divided was a good band name. Also I like the band name because it can kinda mean the band isn’t about one person, we’re all equal and work together.

Beccx & Dxni: If you could be any animal what would it be? Dxn: Tiger. Chrxs: Crane fly. Dxnny: Wolf. Dxve: Sheep. Beccx & Dxni: How did you come up with the band’s logo? Chrxs: The band logo is similar to a logo I’d made for a really old band I was in. I dunno, the logo has just been with me for ages, in my head. I like the way it looks slightly air-force. I have a plan to update the logo, draw it in a slightly different way when ever the band goes through a change, but so you’ll always know its us. Beccx & Dxni: Who has the worst habits? (Everyone looks at Dxn) Dxn: Why are you all looking at me? (Everyone agrees Dxn has the worst habit) Dxnny: We call him ‘Dig a hole Dxn’


soL

Beccx & Dxni: What music inspires you?

Beccx & Dxni: Who writes the songs?

Dxn: Harry Connick Jr,

Dxve: Dxn always takes over.

Chrxs: Bon Jovi ‘Everything’ No wait, ‘Stick to your Guns’ (Proceeds to hum the tune) Dxnny: Luther Vandross Dxve: Jason Mraz ‘Plain’ Beccx & Dxni: What has been your biggest challenge as a band? Chrxs: The biggest challenge has been finding the right people to work with. There’s a lot more involved than just being able to play an instrument. You’ve got to all get on, share the same vision and dream, you have to sacrifice a lot, like plans for the future, pursuing a career, you’ve got to want to work hard and always look to improve. I’ve had friends in the band who weren’t right, and then you lose them as friends and that hurts. I think I could have probably dealt with situations like that better. I remember the first drummer we had, we’d just started with him and then he went on holiday, when he got back I never got in contact with him. I regret that. The band’s good now, I think we’re the strongest we’ve ever been, it’s cool.

from the sky. Everything would be crashing down around us. Until the stars and moon fall at the end.

Beccx & Dxni: Moving along… What are your first impressions of Butserfest?

(Dxn looks shocked, Dxve laughs)

Dxve: You’ve really thought about this haven’t you?

Dxve: Brilliant!

Chrxs: No seriously we just hear stuff we like…

Chrxs: Yes I have.

Dxve… then Dxn copies it blatantly! Manager: There’s a difference between inspiration and plagiarism. Chrxs: We’re just kidding. Dxve: We like to be different but also write real songs what people can relate to and sing along to. Chrxs: We’re very focused on what we want. We are also very visual. Beccx & Dxni: What is your favourite song to play? Dxn: I really like our new song, but just to let you know it isn’t called ‘New song’ as one paper printed. Chrxs: Yeah that’s probably my favourite too. Dxve: It’s a great song to play, very emotional. Beccx & Dxni: What would your dream video be? Chrxs: It would be like great camera work like swooping and spinning in us as things begin to fall

The video idea for Heavy Now is us on top of a building playing a skyscraper show place. As the song goes by it goes from day to night and things start to fall from the sky, starting with birds, then planes, then satellites, then stars. At the end of the song, the camera goes back and you see the moon is about to fall into the earth also. Beccx & Dxni: What is your favourite pudding? Dxve: Treacle sponge Dxn: Not treacle sponge but something with treacle and sponge… Dxve: (Looks puzzled) Treacle sponge…? Dxn: No, not treacle sponge (Looks thoughtful)

Dxnny: Very well organised. Chrxs: Great idea! Beccx & Dxni: Would you come back? Chrxs: We would love to come back if we were invited! Dxve, Dxn & Dxnny: Definitely!

Go:Audio by Kirstie Melton-Scott & lisa brown Sheep or ducks? Ducks Money or music? Music Do you think that presentation means a lot? No. It’s the music people should look out for, not what a band looks like. What do you think of Butserfest? Hot and loud How do you think we could improve Butserfest next year? Get us to headline! How long have you known each other? Josh joined about 6 or 7 years ago, my brother joined about a year later and the drummer joined. We’ve known each other for a couple of years now.

What’s your favourite song you’ve written? I’m With You - it’s deep. When I wrote it, had no particular experience, I was just proud when I wrote it, it means a lot. Where did the band’s name come from? It was originally ‘The Vacancy’ but we changed it. Josh came up with the name. Advice for young bands? Just believe in what you do, stay focused. Good things happen to good people.

THE

BLACKOUT by Kirstie Melton-Scott & lisa brown

Ice cream or cake? Cake with ice-cream on… duh! How long have you known each other? Well we were babies and friends as we were growing up. Do you have any fears? Spiders... and heights... and snakes... and worms, but we’re all big brave men.

Origin of the band’s name, how’d you decide? *Laughs* It was picked out of a hat, and it wasn’t even the first choice. The first one was Ten Minute Preview, but we picked again. The origin was the New York City blackout and it just sounded good.

Favourite-biggest venue? A lot, Give It A Name was really big, and this other one was really cool but it’s now demolished and has turned into a mall. Also Astro, in Tokyo. Biggest challenge? Well nothing we haven’t completed. Everything’s been completed easily.

There have been loads of challenges throughout all of the band life, like getting to where we are now, and being allowed to tour and play. Do you have a record deal? YES.

Upcoming live shows in the South Lost Prophets Friday 20 November 2009, 8pm, Union Chapel, Islington, London with Tour ! Monday 25 January 2010, 8pm, Southampton Guildhall, Kerrang Friday 5 February 2010, 8pm, London Roundhouse, Kerrang! Tour

A month in the life of a Youth Councillor sports), and the O2 arena. We had talks from Cecelia Turk, a local paralympian, for the sport of Boccia and Ryan Scott, a 100 metre sprinter who hopes to compete in the 2012 Olympics. The trip made me feel really excited about 2012.

My name is Elin. I finished school in June and started college in September. I enjoy playing the violin in my spare time. I was Vice Chair of East Hampshire Youth Council in 2008/09 and have been Secretary since May 2009. In August, I attended a lot of events as summer is the easiest time of the year for me.

One of the events I went to was the regional British Youth Council Convention in London. We took part in training sessions and a panel debate with representatives from the 4 main parties. We also took part in a tour of the Olympic site for 2012. We had a coach-ride from EHDC to the Olympic site in East London, Excel (a large ‘hall’ for the arena

I also attended CAT mark training that week. CAT mark is a system to allow young people to assess organisations for their ‘young-people friendliness’. The following week I went to a meeting about an EHYC project – youth debt. We developed a webpage with FAQ’s on money worries and sorting out a

toolkit and training. I went to London for a residential course to develop a ‘toolkit’ for adults to engage young people in formal meetings. We also promoted ourselves by having interviews with Delta radio and meeting with the Petersfield Post about having a regular slot in their paper which went really well. The radio interview was nerve wracking but fun. You should be hearing about us much more in the next year - watch this space! Elin Thomas

Your Stars ARIES

21 March - 19 April You are feeling pretty forceful and agitated lately. This can be seen in a good way and could help out some friends, but don’t act too rashly. Love: It doesn’t seem to be working well, but there’s someone out there with their eye on you. So don’t wait. Find that person and make your move.

TAURUS

20 April - 20 May Your feelings are showing a great deal and people appreciate it but don’t push it or you’ll make enemies. Your appearance has a great impact on your romantic life.

GEMINI

21 May - 21June You shouldn’t be such a pushover. Believe in yourself more! You’ll learn a great deal more if you just get out there. Don’t let anyone put you down. Love: Playing the field and laying low, that’s how you roll.

CANCER

22 June - 22 July You are creative and full of new, exciting ideas. This is a good time to push yourself and get higher in the world. Love’s a-bit down this year, a-bit on the rocky side, however you’ll soon get control and figure something out to balance things.

LEO

23 July - 22 August You may think you’re always right, but it doesn’t mean you’re convincing everyone. Beware of getting played, it’s good to let them think they’ve won. Love is spreading every where, this year is your year.

VIRGO

23 August - 22 September Your brain is working like mad! Thoughts going crazy. Just kick back and relax. Love: Ooh, you have many admirers. One of them is someone you easily connect with.

SAGITTARIUS

22 November 21 December You’ll be forced into many difficult decisions, but it’s all good. Your energy is a bit off-balance, but that just means you’re going to stumble into the right situation. Love: your confidence will get you a long, long way.

CAPRICORN

22 December 19 January Focus all of your energy on the things you want to do. Your great energy defines and guarantees that you have lots of time to relax and have fun. Love: You feel trapped, but don’t know how to end the relationship. Just go for it and be a single pringle.

AQUARIUS

LIBRA

23 September - 22 October It’s the perfect year for making amends to old fiends, or patching up misunderstandings. Don’t get too stressed, you want a carefree, relaxing life. Love: You should just go for it, you won’t get rejected, this year is your year!

20 January - 18 February There are going to be many boring days, so don’t complain about them! Make them fun, be creative! Love: Use your strength to overcome your shyness, talk to the one you want, see if they want you too! You never know...

SCORPIO

PISCES

23 October - 21 November Your feelings are all over the place, but everyone still loves you! It may be a tough year, but you’ve gotten through worse, push through. Love: It doesn’t seem so bright and sunny, it just seems luck has abandoned you.

19 February - 20 March It’s a good time to spend time with the family, don’t take them for granted. You only have one family once, don’t be ignorant. Love: Don’t get your hopes up. You need to try harder if you want that person to notice you’re even alive.
