WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? So, here we are, festival season is here again, and we are as excited as beans that we are back. As a Reading Chronicle columnist for The Guide, I had the idea of ‘taking over’ The WHOLE of the Reading Chronicle newspaper. Not satified with taking half the town centre, I thought i’d move onto the Chronicle, then perhaps Southern England, the world, I dunno. And even though It could be said that it was somewhat of a shock to some pessimistic soothsayers, The Reading Chronicle actually agreed! but only for The Guide. Well, what a bonus hey? Wasn’t expecting that. My hand was out quicker then you could say “iwilltakeyouuponyourofferthankyouverymuch”. We won’t lie, the layout is rather different, and the content is perhaps at least a bit biased. But alas, this is an arts and culture section of the paper, and this is the biggest and widest ranging cultural festival that this town centre has hosted. We should be telling you about it huh? Yup. So here it is, 12 pages for you to pour over, devour if you like. There’s alot of writing, some nice pictures, the whole line up for the first time in full and a toughy lil booger of a crossword, hand made by Pete Hefferan from Pete & The Pirates, especially for us. Thanks Pete. So where have we got to then. Well the festival has got bigger, bolder, braver and pushing more forward thinking programming your way. We liked us in 2010, we really did. But this is a new year, and we have moved on quite a lot since then. Why? What have we done? Well, we joined the Association Of Independent Festivals, rubbing shoulders with the independent festival elite. Pooling our knowledge together with the likes of WOMAD, Bestival, Creamfields, Field Day, Standon Calling, End Of The Road and Kendall Calling. Yeah, little us! Our team has grown substancially too. Tim Hooper has stepped up to full on festival manager, and by gum, he has been amazing. He has pulled this festival together, and mainly dealt with my eclectic festival whims and brazen ideas. We have brought more arts communities into the festival. With jelly, Hogarth Productions, Goggleheads, Poejazzi and The Situational Comedy Event Co not to mention our WOW selection of food and refreshments on offer - I don’t think a festival has had so much fab nosh. We have moved from being a great local festival, to being a national festival, the whole countries eyes are on us this year (well, almost), as we are the UK’s first Pop-Up Festival. A what-you-what? A Pop-Up Festival.
WHAT’S A POP UP FESTIVAL? The notion of a Pop Up is not new, but has risen in recent times from being a ‘cult’-tural craze, to finding its ways into the lives of us all. Whether it be a Gordon Ramsey TV show, an arts venue or shop, we are all getting a lil bit mad on the Pop-Up. So what does this mean that the outside:inside is doing. Well. Arts charity - outside:inside partners and programmers, jelly, happen to know a thing or two about the Pop Up. jelly director Suzanne Stallard brought the idea back to Reading way back after graduating from Art College in Bristol. In need of an arts scene, a working area and space to exhibit hers and other artists work. She found the idea of taking on limited leases in often unused, empty spaces in want of the life being breathed back into them. A site on 35 Minster Street planned for demolition to make way for The Oracle shopping centre became the first home of jelly. Wind the clock forward, 2010, and the arts charity and collective partnered with relative newcomers to the Reading music scene, but always the optimists outside:inside. During this years festival, outside:inside in collaboration with Open for Art, a partnership project by jelly and Reading UK CIC, will clean up, paint up, fill up, animate up and pop up into empty spaces and unusual ‘not normally used as a music stage’ venues.
SO RIGHT, GOT THAT. POP UP SPACES, REINVIGORATING EMPTY SPACES. SO WHAT ARE YOU PUTTING IN THERE? We have spent the whole of the last year since we saw you last; designing, chatting, arguing, chatting more, arguing more, wheeling, dealing and finally programming exactly the way we wanted to. A lorra love has been poured into this festival, and I think you shall see that, and love it equally as much as we do. We have specially programmed…or more curated, the whole spectrum of arts together. Treating each individual piece or artist much like hanging a work in a gallery, giving thought as to why each should sit where and when, and with whom they will share the space. Local musicians, artists, filmmakers and actors sit alongside their national and international established counterparts. In a celebration of Reading’s talent and deep cultural heritage, whilst attracting some jaw dropping headliners that the town centre should be proud to host.
LIKE WHO? Turner prize winning artist/musician Martin Creed; Inventor of Dub, grandfather of reggae Lee Scratch Perry; the enigmatic Mark E Smith’s The Fall; Beatbox Champion of all the universe-ever Beardyman; The worlds best DJ, Andy C; Hillbilly kings Hayseed Dixie; You Tube phenomenon Gabrielle Aplin; not to mention some of the most exciting acts coming through in the UK at the moment with the likes of Summer Camp, Dutch Uncles, Phoenix Foundation, Alessi’s Ark, Vices, The Disablists, Tall Ships, Tom Williams & The Boat, Mighty Mouse, Tripwires, Fever Fever, Wild Palms, Spring Offensive, Jazz Morley, Misty’s Big Adventure, Kid Carpet, Screama Ballerina….the list goes on and on.

JELLY This is the second year that we have worked with outside:inside festival and planning for the arts element this year started at the end of 2010. The pop-up festival theme suited jelly perfectly as we have been installing exhibitions in empty shop windows, since we started in 1993 and more recently in partnership with Reading UK CIC. Outside:inside pop-up festival means that we can bring the spaces alive with sound, moving images, performance and exhibitions working with Jack Hepplewhite (Festival Director) and the rest of the outside:inside team. Things that we have loved doing most, is the beginning of the shop window exhibitions (Friar Street) and the opening of the outside:inside festival shop on Market Place, which stocks original artworks, music, information and tickets for the festival. Next big project? Changing Coopers Arms, Market Place into a new exciting pop-up arts venue, hopefully launching on the first day of the festival. One of the best things that happened? Visiting the art shows at Reading University and Reading College, finding exciting pieces of work to showcase in Reading town centre. The pop-up exhibitions, live performances and installations will be a mixture of emerging and talented artists both local and national.
POEJAZZI Our festival poetry comes from one of London’s top spoken word troupe; Poejazzi. Fronted by the enigmatic Joshua Idehen, lead singer of Hip-Hop Jazz posse Benin City (30th July), lookout for an exciting poetry line up with a modern twist. Joshua’s work has not gone unnoticed either, with his “Routes” collaboration with LV being acclaimed by IDJ, DJ Mag, Clash mag, MixMag and Q Magazine.
Chaps and Chapettes! The Situational Event Company high-fivingly brings to you an evening of the best of the infamous Edinburgh Comedy Fringe Festival, where every name in comedy is made from Russell Brand to Dylan Moran. We’ve scouted the best acts on the brink of greatness going to Edinburgh this August to blow some minds and wet some pants. They present to you their full-fat, fresh stand-up performances with sprinkles on top. Acts include ***** comedians such as story-telling, gag-merchant Josh Poejazzi, praised by The Southbank Centre as “London’s premier poetry and Howie, The Times: “a name to watch” and the Panda-loving, moustachemusic night”, and twice awarded five wielding beaut that is Paul Sweeney, stars at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Spoonfed : “circuit favourite”. will showcase the finest emerging Can you say “BOOM”? and established talent at Reading’s outside:inside. Ye Ol George Courtyard Vicky Cullen tis the venue, a 15 Century Coaching Inn Courtyard, believed to be the oldest existing building in Reading, dating back to at least as far as 1423. It was one of the major coaching inns between London and the West Country in the 18th century, and it still retains many of its wonderful original Coaching Inn features, including Tudor Archways and a very attractive Cobbled stone courtyard. The main entrance from King Street still contains some of the original timbers, and 18th and 19th century facades overlook the courtyard. How about that then?
Things to watch out for? Ephemera installations, photography, a windmill in Joshua Idehen The Forbury Gardens, a sound sculpture in the Penta and some fabulous site specific installations. Suzanne Stallard
THE SITUATIONAL EVENT COMEDY COMPANY
GOGGLEHEADS FILM FESTIVAL
HOGARTH THEATRE PRODUCTIONS
I don’t know whether our illustrious leader Jack Hepplewhite is either a) the most disorganised fool in the universe or b) a genius. Let me explain, at approximately 11:00 o’clock last night I received a text which read “Ian, can you please write an article on the highlights of Goggleheads for the festival programme” There is nothing unusual about getting a request like this. Truth be known I was happy to get this text and had already thought, I have the day off on Tuesday that will be perfect.
At Hogarth Productions, we focus on commissioning new work, and pushing the boundaries of what we might expect from theatre, performance and exhibition. We were delighted to be asked by outside:inside to contribute a theatrical element to the festival this year.
At approximately 11:01 a second text arrived “Oh yeah, did I mention the deadline is tomorrow lunch time. 12:00 NOON” So as you can see to the casual observer option (a) is looking like the winner. Or is it? You see spontaneity “living in the now” is one of the most powerful tools available to any artist. Examples of this are littered throughout art and cinema history.
It gives us a great opportunity to increase our creative output and we have taken the chance create a through-line to some of the theatrical offerings available to audiences in Reading this year. Working in the arts in Reading has shown us that there is a great enthusiasm for the arts in Reading, from both artists and audience. With outside:inside, WAF, Nuit Blanche and now the Caversham Festival all growing, Reading is starting to make a difference. Watch this space… Edmund Hogarth
Now. Without wishing to sound like an old man, I remember well my career high of having one of the projects I worked on shown at Tate Modern. That sickness, an inability to breath followed by euphoria. I still reflect on that today. There are some great young talents this year who will be going through that very emotion. Goggleheads is about empowering emerging talent to show their work and have some seasoned old war horses come down to entertain and talk about how they have made it! That aside, I think the highlight of this year’s Goggleheads will be the reappearance of Caleb Lindsay (16th July Forbury Hotel). So to answer the question….. Jack Hepplewhite Is a genius he is just to disorganised to notice. Ian Manson is one half of Manson Hamer Productions (The other half being Paul Hamer) and together they run Goggleheads Film festival. Proud to be part of the outsideinsidefestival. Ian Manson
JUST A FEW WORDS ABOUT SOME OF OUR SUPERB ACTS Lee Scratch Perry.
His work as a producer and musician is considered some of the most influential in the history of Ska, Reggae and Dub and Jamaican music in general. Fact. In 1973, he built his own recording studio, known as the Black Ark. At this point, he began focusing heavily on production, and worked with such legends as Bob Marley and the Wailers, The Heptones, and Junior Marvin. It was during his collaborations with Bob Marley that he made some of his most notable innovations. Lee “Scratch” Perry the inventor of dub, an offshoot of reggae that emphasizes mixing-board remixes of instrumental songs, often with the bass and drums turned up and lots of reverb. At the age of 74, he is still performing, and is known for his wild outfits and bizarre (though highly entertaining) on-stage storytelling.
famously described by John Peel as being “always different, always the same” formed in Manchester, England in 1976 during the punk era although their style quickly evolved into something more idiosyncratic. The one permanent fixture amidst The Fall’s ever-changing line-up is Mark E Smith. Smith’s lyrics are free, unboxed and unpredictable, touching on an extremely wide range of subjects and places and caring little for being tied down to easily digestible. In 2006, the Guardian published an entertaining account of a journalist’s attempt to track down all 43 former members of The Fall. Many previous members have been fired, often with little or no notice.
It’s no big thing to consider DJ Derek an oddity in the U.K reggae scene. Quite honestly, the former accountant turned DJ would be an oddity no matter what genre he was spinning for the masses. Derek Morris was fed up with the rather un-dynamic pop music scene in the U.K in the 1950s, and turned to the more frenetic R&B scenes in America, as well as the burgeoning reggae scene in Jamaica. Eventually leaving behind his day job at Cadbury’s, his love for the music led him to a DJ residence at Bristol’s Star & Garter pub, where his sets would become the stuff of legend. His reputation grew and grew, influencing a number of prominent artists including Massive Attack and becoming an ever-present feature at festival shows, including Big Chill and Shambala.
2001 Turner Prize show at the Tate Gallery, Work No. 227, the lights going on and off, which won that year’s prize. The artwork presented was an empty room in which the lights periodically switched on and off. As so often with the Turner Prize, this created a great deal of press attention, most of it questioning whether something as minimalist as this could be considered art at all. In typical outside:inside fashion Martin appears at the festival as musician. In January 2011 Creed released the single “Thinking/Not Thinking” (TR1) on his label Telephone Records.
The Reading four-piece has attracted media attention, and their constant gigging and prestigious festival appearances, not to mention album and EP releases, have earned them a well-established loyal fan base. The Quotes infectious sound and slick execution has earned them a reputation as an outstanding live band.
swing for the rave generation and rave for the swing generation. With backgrounds of Drum and Bass, Hip-Hop, Funk, Electro and Breaks and a passion for vintage music, scantily clad ladies and dapper décolletage comes a duet DJ show which brings you back to the 30’s with big bad dutty basslines thrown in to satisfy all those insatiable needs.
A Genuine Freakshow
are a band firmly bonded septet brought together in the Reading area from a desire to blend their love of the experimental with the melody and traditional song-writing prowess of the likes of band favourites Elbow, Mew and The National. The band has found their sweet spot, creating a music that is intricate but unafraid of big melodies. With a line-up that adds violin, cello and trumpet to the standard rock four-piece of guitar, bass, drums and vocals, their live shows are a master class in how to do epic without slipping into pompous.
is a new female fronted band buzzing with the electric energy and attitude of Punk mixed with the raw dirty sound of Grunge. Four working class kids, combining sex-u-al guitar licks, hooks and truthful lyrics to create an intense new ‘Grunk’ sound. They are creating ear-splitting chaos with their passionate, energetic live shows where they encourage fans to dance offensively and let themselves go. Evolving from London and Brighton, this summer will see the band touring and recording their debut single that is scheduled for release in July and they’re more than ready to leave their gobby mark on the British music scene.
are two brothers-in-law who are the only band who make original compositions using midi and 8 bit melodies from chips taken from late 70’s and 80’s video-game consoles. MidiMidis’ unforgettable show opening for Suede at Bush Hall had front man Brett Anderson declaring “I love them” in the NME in January, and Blur’s Dave Rowntree picking them as one of his top favourite new acts in Mojo magazine. MidiMidis have also gained plaudits from Q Magazine, Artrocker, The Fly, NME (for being the first band to remix Egyptian Hip Hop), Metro, The Word, and Playstation World Magazine, not too mention extensive BBC airplay.

It is reported that so many competitors refused to go up against him for a third year, he was not allowed to enter in 2008. Instead he was on the 2008 judging panel. Signed to Sunday Best Records and a renowned You Tube sensation for his interesting cooking skills.
“Valley of the Shadows”, as well as a large number of remixes. The 2002 Shimon & Andy C hit “Body Rock” also achieved the rare distinction of being a Drum and Bass record that entered the UK pop charts (reaching number 28 in the UK Singles Top 40 Chart on January 6 2002).
Dub Pistols have always added a much-needed Rock n Roll swagger to the UK’s dance scene. Chewing up hiphop, dub, techno, ska & punk & spitting them out in a renegade futuristic skank, they have consistently defied genres, and their genre-mashing abilities have led to remix work for the likes of Moby, Crystal Method, Limp Bizkit, Korn & Ian Brown. In recent years the band has mutated from a studio based duo into a fully fledged live act often featuring the talents of guest vocalists Rodney P, Specials front man Terry Hall, rap wünderkid T.K, Sugardaddy horn-blower Tim Hutton & scratch maestro DJ Stix.
Man Like Me’s
Johnny Langer and Peter Duffy met while at school in North London, and bonded through their mutual love of Tricky and skateboarding. They announced themselves with the Nu Rave banger Oh My Gosh, quit their jobs, and have been playing rent catchup ever since. The “best damn live act in the UK” (Loud & Quiet) then embarked on a never ending World Tour. From L.A. to Estonia, Cape Town to Stoke, Man Like Me arrived pockets filled with underground classics London Town, Single Dad, Carny and Lovestruck. More recently you may have caught Man Like Me honing their kitchen selling skills, collaborating with 80s ledge Jona Lewie and IKEA for a primetime TV ad.
blogs and aggregator sites such as Hype Machine. Dutch Uncles are an indie band from Manchester. They are known for their use of atypical time signatures within a pop context. Their influences includes several bands such as The Smiths, King Crimson, Steve Reich, XTC and Talking Heads.
Disco has been revived more times than any other music genre. Mighty Mouse, like Aeroplane, Villa and the C90s, is keeping it alive, investing it with contemporary relevance and giving current-day artists some disco luster.
‘’Taking a route increasingly denied to British pop, these New Zealanders have been able to develop under the radar over a decade before delivering what feels like a major breakthrough. Song writing this good doesn’t come along often” The Guardian. 6 January 2011. 5 stars (Dave Simpson)
London singer and guitarist Alessi Laurent-Marke, the latest graduate of the MySpace generation to land a major record deal. This folk-popster spins cosmic madrigals with suitable fairytale melodies, dream imagery and baroque arrangements. Fans of the gutsy and earthy should look away.

fascinated by the way colours interact and has specially made some work for Outside:Inside inspired by the colours in his junk mail. Peter harvested all the pure areas of colour snipped from every piece of unsolicited mail received during the month of April 2011. Keeping the entire colour but discarding the images and words, creates interesting negative shapes, which has been used as though they were ‘found objects’. The two accompanying works develop the ideas of unsolicited colour through two interpretative paintings. These attempt to translate the qualities of ‘found colour’ into a representation of Reading Town Centre and an abstract composition.

This is incorporated when the observer interacts within the multitude of artefacts. The arrangement of work in a grid formation itself, contradicts the typical product placement - near a door or on a tabletop. It is only each artefact’s appearance and title (reference to the electric doorbell inventor Joseph Henry), which hints to the original desire - attracting attention.

They meet two women (Amelia Curtis, Louisa Milwood) who use the ads to scam men out of cash, gifts and food. One immediately sees through the women’s ruse, but the other becomes infatuated with his date and continues to pursue her. She in turn tells her friend that she is just playing him for bigger plans. The film turns on whether she has actually fallen for him or if she continues to be a user.

The final outcome of this experiment, where a plant tray has been isolated and cultured exclusively with heat, devoid of any structural or cohesive aids, has resulted in a pure mutation of the initial subject to an almost unidentifiable plastic metastasis. Utilising scientific imagery, I make connections between exact microscopic evidence and a more material fascination with the unseen polymers of plastic and internal parts of organisms, presented using mundane materials.
Experimental, Commedia dell’larte Bristol based Theatre Company, will be hawking the stages of the festival, surprising the audience, and sometimes themselves with their unique brand of innovative performance. Their eyecatching 20-minute shows will appear - then disappear and you will wonder what the hell you have seen

SPECIAL MENTIONS EDEN MUSIC PR
READING UK CIC
This programme has been lovingly put together and edited by Festival Director Jack Hepplewhite. Eden Music PR and the outside:inside Festival team. Eden Music PR and Management, has been spinning, sourcing, producing and plugging the hottest talent from across the planet since 2009. Working alongside artists from Grimus(Romania), Screama Ballerina, Amy’s Ghost and Harmonay. The music PR guru biz has also been working their magic in partnership with Top label promoters and record label Velocity Recordings/Club Velocity and the outside:inside Festival of course.
Human League, The Stranglers, The Buzzcocks, T-Rex. Shirley Bassey, Altered Images, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fleetwood Mac all have something in common. They all worked with legendary producer Martin Rushent. Whether it was his early days an engineer at Advision Studios alongside Tony Viscoti; Producing for United Artists and convincing them to sign The Stranglers; Creating the sound of the 80’s in Steatley at Genetics or his present day work with his son on Does It Offend You Yeah?, Martin has always pushed for new and exciting bands to be heard and taken risks in the studio that has shaped popular music culture.
2011 sees outside:inside work alongside local homeless project LaunchPad. Launchpad Reading (formerly Reading Single Homeless Project) is a registered charity that helps some of Reading’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged people to turn around their lives. Supporting LaunchPad and their aims is something very close to the heart of outside:inside. Their tireless work over the years, giving people a second chance and helping them make changes to their lives - is relevant to us all living in Reading Town Centre. The outside:inside Festival will be donating a percentage of its profit to LaunchPad. Support them too: www.rshp.co.uk
We are proud to be working with Reading UK CIC on the outside:inside project for the 3rd year running now. Although moving from a partner to main sponsor, their support for this festival and cultural, social and business development in Reading has not slowed. You would have noticed the improvements to the town centre over the last few years, economically, aesthetically and culturally helping Reading develop and fulfill its potential as one of the most forward thinking successful towns in the UK. Without the help of Reading UK CIC, this festival would not have developed as it has. Their help and development of the festival and its team has seen the outside:inside Festival grow ten-fold year on year.
On the of 4th June Martin sadly passed away at his home in Upper Basildon. This year’s festival is dedicated to Martin Rushent. Throughout the festival there will be performances from artists that have worked with Martin. You’ll also have the chance to learn more about his set up at Genetic’s Studios and how he achieved his recognisable 80’s synth sound. Martin was performing his much talked about Dubai Retrospect DJ set at this year’s outside:inside and this will be performed in his memory by friends and family. Expect to hear all the hits from Martin’s outstanding catalogue. Right from the early 70’s as an engineer for the likes of T Rex, Fleetwood Mac, to his production work with The Stranglers. Era defining hits from his career in the 80s, the very best in New Romantic and Synth including his Brit Award winning album Dare by Human League. You’ll also have a chance to hear how he is shaping today’s pop culture with his latest work straight from the studio. Martin’s fee will be donated to a charity very close to him, Action For Children. A charity supporting children and young people through difficult circumstances and helping them to achieve their goals. You will also have the opportunity to donate to Martin’s charity throughout the festival. For more information and to donate online visit http://www.justgiving.com/Martin-Rushent-RecordProducer
