THE BIG INTERVIEW

ANSWERS PLEASE

T

THE BIG INTERVIEW HERE’S always been, and will be, young groups of friends forming bands, dreaming of releasing albums and rocking stadiums. What’s been the difference for you guys, coming from a small area in Northern Ireland and managing to break through into the industry, and what advice would you give to other bands that are trying to do the same thing?

-We’ve had a few lucky breaks along the way but we’ve also remained focused and together over the years. You really have to put the work in and not wait around for some miracle to land on your doorstep and you also have to truly want to play music for a living and realise its not like it is in the movies...even though its still pretty damn good. On breaking into the industry and selling over 100,000 records, do you consider you’ve ‘made it’, was that ever your aim as a band and what future ambitions to you hold?

Rock’n’Roll touring is notorious for its ‘anything goes’ attitude-does it live up to its billing and if so whats the wildest thing thats happened on tour?

FR O M s e llin g o v e r 100, 000 r e c o r ds, t our ing the w o r ld w ith AC /D C , t o le n d in g the i r hand t o t he G u i t ar H er o fr a nc hise , this lo c a l b a nd d o n e g ood !

Where’s the best venue or gig you’ve played, and how does coming back to Quinns bar compare to rocking huge stadiums across the world?

-We did a two night stand in Madison Square Gardens which was pretty memorable..as was Wembly stadium and Punchestown Racecourse. Those gigs were a little different to the Quinns bar experience but I mean it when I say that the Quinns homeI wouldn’t coming was a special night for us. It was great to be able say to play in front of so many anything family and friends again. That g o e s b u t i t s was afterall the venue where we really cut our teeth as a live not far off! band back in the early days.

-Thats an achievement that we’re very proud of but we still have so much more to prove. We want to sell a few million albums and fill stadiums. We’ve got the songs and the live show to do it so why not!!

Image © Paul Harris

-I’ve been getting into The Mars Volta recently. I also really enjoy Black Mountain and the Drive By Truckers. I would say however that theres very few bands around today (apart from ourselves of course) that are of the same calibre of the ACDCs, Led Zepplins and Nirvana’s of this world. Its down to bands like ourselves to step up to the plate and keep true rock n roll alive.

-I wouldn’t say anything goes but its not far off. As far as stories go you’re gonna have to get me pretty drunk before I start dishing the dirt. Lets just say The Answer has a good time on the road and leave it at that. You toured with AC/DC and are cited as saying they’re one of your favorite bands. But who else has influenced you and who, among the current contemporary rock bands, do you like?

When you do come back to your local towns I’ve heard nothing but good things, and even the fact that you still play small pub gigs, suggests you guys are pretty grounded. Is this difficult to do when your in a band such as yourselves and your selling thousands of records and touring with the likes of AC/DC? -Not at all. Any band or musician from Northern Ireland who finds it difficult to stay grounded needs to get their head checked. Just because you sing a few songs for a living doesn’t give you the right to act the eejit! .....and finally, what can we expect from The Answer over the next 12 months? -Lots and lots of touring and hopefully a couple of platinum records. See you in Quinns for a pint in 2012!

SHORT STORIES

SHORT STORIES

THE FIELD BAZAAR by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1896) “The Field Bazaar” was written during an Edinburgh University fundraising event. Doyle had been requested by his university to contribute a short piece of literature for a charity magazine. In the story Watson has received a similar request. “I SHOULD certainly do it,” said Sherlock Holmes. I started at the interruption, for my companion had been eating his breakfast with his attention entirely centered upon the paper which was propped up by the coffee pot. Now I looked across at him to find his eyes fastened upon me with the half-amused, half-questioning expression which he usually assumed when he felt he had made an intellectual point. “Do what?” I asked. He smiled as he took his slipper from the mantelpiece and drew from it enough shag tobacco to fill the old clay pipe with which he invariably rounded off his breakfast. “A most characteristic question of yours, Watson,” said he. “You will not, I am sure, be offended if I say that any reputation for sharpness which I may possess has been entirely gained by the admirable foil which you have made for me. Have I not heard of debutantes who have insisted upon plainness in their chaperones? There is a certain analogy.” Our long companionship in the Baker Street rooms had left us on those easy terms of intimacy when much may be said without offence. And yet I acknowledged that I was nettled at his remark. “I may be very obtuse,” said I, “but I confess that I am unable to see how you have managed to know that I was... I was...” “Asked to help in the Edinburgh University Bazaar...” “Precisely. The letter has only just come to hand, and I have not spoken to you since.”

8

“In spite of that,” said Holmes, leaning back in his chair and putting his finger tips together, “I would even venture to suggest that the object of the bazaar is to enlarge the University cricket field.” I looked at him in such bewilderment that he vibrated with silent laughter. “The fact is, my dear Watson, that you are an excellent subject,” said he. “You are never blase. You respond instantly to any external stimulus. Your mental processes may be slow but they are never obscure, and I found during breakfast that you were easier reading than the leader in the Times in front of me.” “I should be glad to know how your arrived at your conclusions,” said I. “I fear that my good nature in giving explanations has seriously compromised my reputation,” said Holmes. “But in this case the train of reasoning is based upon such obvious facts that no credit can be claimed for it. You entered the room with a thoughtful expression, the expression of a man who is debating some point in his mind. In your hand you held a solitary letter. Now last night you retired in the best of spirits, so it was clear that it was this letter in your hand which had caused the change in you.” “This is obvious.” “It is all obvious when it is explained to you. I naturally asked myself what the letter could contain which might have this affect upon you. As you walked you held the flap side of the envelope towards me, and I saw upon it the same shieldshaped device which I have observed upon your old college cricket cap. It was clear, then, that the request came from Edinburgh University - or from some club connected with the University. When you reached the table you laid down the letter beside your plate with the address uppermost, and you walked over to look at the framed photograph upon the left of the mantelpiece.” It amazed me to see the accuracy with which he had observed my movements. “What next?” I asked. “I began by glancing at the address, and I could tell, even at the distance of six feet, that it was an unofficial communication. This I gathered from the use of the word ‘Doctor’ upon the address, to which, as a Bachelor of Medicine, you have no

legal claim. I knew that University officials are pedantic in their correct use of titles, and I was thus enabled to say with certainty that your letter was unofficial. When on your return to the table you turned over your letter and allowed me to perceive that the enclosure was a printed one, the idea of a bazaar first occurred to me. I had already weighed the possibility of its being a political communication, but this seemed improbable in the present stagnant conditions of politics. “When you returned to the table your face still retained its expression and it was evident that your examination of the photograph had not changed the current of your thoughts. In that case it must itself bear upon the subject in question. I turned my attention to the photograph, therefore, and saw at once that it consisted of yourself as a member of the Edinburgh University Eleven, with the pavillion and cricket field in the background. My small experience of cricket clubs has taught me that next to churches and cavalry ensigns they are the most debt-laden things upon earth. When upon your return to the table I saw you take out your pencil and draw lines upon the envelope, I was convinced that

your were endeavoring to realise some projected improvement which was to be brought about by a bazaar. Your face still showed some indecision, so that I was able to break in upon you with my advice that you should assist in so good an object.” I could not help smiling at the extreme simplicity of his explanation. “Of course, it was as easy as possible,” said I. My remark appeared to nettle him. “I may add,” said he, “that the particular help which you have been asked to give was that you should write in their album, and that you have already made up your mind that the present incident will be the subject of your article.” “But how - - !” I cried. “It is as easy as possible,” said he, “and I leave its solution to your own ingenuity. In the meantime,” he added, rasing his paper, “you will excuse me if I return to this very interesting article upon the trees of Cremona, and the exact reasons for the pre-eminence in the manufacture of violins. It is one of those small outlying problems to which I am sometimes tempted to direct my attention.”

FIFA 12 is THE best football game available. PES had fallen so far behind FIFA, that I, along with millions of other gamers, had no choice. PES had always prided itself on superior gameplay- if not player names! Fans would happily set up a 4-4-2 system with Ruud von Mistleroom and Ryan Gills in the starting line-up, because we were purists- at the end of the day it didn’t matter if you had to sacrifice a certain amount of realism for a more satisfying gaming experience. But that soon changed. Whilst the Pro Evo team were busy thinking up outrageous names for players and teams, FIFA were slowly but surely improving their game engine. Year by year they were edging closer to PES with the action on the field and when they did finally match them in

The focus this year has been on the defence aspect of the game, although considerably harder than ‘11 it allows for an even more realistic gaming experience. The game physics have been improving consitently and the result is a brilliant example of AI power, the players react differently to any given scenario, resulting in little to no repetition in the game.

MOVIES

LIKE A BOSS SOME great characters and an altogether better cast hold a somewhat farcical plot line together. THREE 30-something friends are all having varying difficulties with their respective bosses, so much so, that it leads them to conspire to kill them. Though the film is centered around the three murderers-to-be, it’s the three intended victims that really steal the show. Kevin Spacey, a consistently brilliant comedic actor, plays the sadistic psychopathic Dave Harken, who, after years of hinting at a promotion for Nick (Jason Bateman) takes the position for himself. All is well for Kurt (Jason Sudeikis), until his boss dies, leaving his drug-addicted ‘tool’ of a son, Bobby Pellitt (Colin Farrell) in charge. And whilst it may be a dream come true for many a man to have Jennifer Aniston pursuing them, Dale (Charlie Day) has had only one dream since he was a boy, ‘to be a husband’- Julia (Aniston) threat-

ens to ruin his engagement if he doesn’t give in to her, somewhat aggressive, advances. There are plenty of laughs throughout the film as our three protagonists get embroiled in all sorts of mayhem, and again any scene with the sterling support cast is a delight. Jamie Foxx plays a ‘murder consultant’ with an outrageous name that unfortunately cannot be repeated on these pages, however leads to some brilliant one-liners throughout the film. The plot may seem a little off kilter but this can be easily over looked when the cast delivers as well as this.

NOEL Gallagher was always the bet- The formula is a tried and tested one, ‘If I Had a Gun’ his ‘Wonderwall’, The Death Of You And ter half of Oasis. Sure, Liam had the frontman swagger, brash arrogance and undoubted stage presence, however, that soon wore off as a thousand and one imitators saturated the ‘Britpop’ scene with the hands behind your back, two fingers to everyone attitude. So, with that said, it was Noel’s talent that insured Oasis’ longevity, which came to an abrubt, yet unsurprising, end in August 2009. Two years on, is where we find Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, his first solo project since the split.

Me’ his ‘The Importance Of Being Idol’. Whether these tracks and the other nine or so on the album, stand the test of time is yet to be seen. The albums production is precise and clinical, which favours a number of songs on the album, yet overall the album lacks a rawness to really take it to that next level. Noel Gallagher is still a major musical talent, so it won’t come as any surprise as to the quality of the album, however when you raise the bar to such an extent it may take more than high flying birds to reach them same levels again.

FOOD & WINE A great dinner party meal or a certain family favourite. There are two main processes to making this recipe. The first is to roast the mixed vegetables in the oven and the second is to make the tomato sauce. In the end you bring the both together to pack a real Mediterranean punch.

FOOD & WINE YOU’LL NEED:

VEGETABLE INGREDIENTS Mixed Bell Peppers (I use 1 Red and 1 Yellow) 1 Zucchini 5-6 mushrooms 1 onion 2 tbsp olive oil 1/2 tsp Herbes de Provence SAUCE INGREDIENTS 1 small onion, finely chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 tsp tomato puree 1/2 tsp sun dried tomato paste 1 tsp paprika 1/2 tsp dried mixed herbs 1/2 cup vegetable stock 1/2 glass red wine (optional) 1 cup tinned tomatoes (puréed) 1 tsp sugar 1/2 cup green olives, finely chopped Fresh Basil, chopped for garnish

Roast ‘n’ Boast

24

Roast Vegetable and Olive Pasta Sauce THE STEPS:

• Preheat the oven to 180ºC/355F Chop up all the Vegetables into large pieces. Sprinkle with the herbs de provence, olive oil and mix well. Roast in the oven for around 20-30 minutes turning once or twice. • While the Vegetables are roasting, prepare the Sauce. Sautee the onion in a little olive oil in a saucepan until soft (3 minutes). Add the garlic and cook for a further couple of minutes. Add the red wine , sun-dried paste and tomato puree and turn up the heat to reduce and burn off the alcohol. Add the pureed tomatoes, vegetable stock, paprika, mixed herbs and sugar and stir well. Reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 15 minutes (stir occasionally). Taste and season with salt & pepper.

• Once the sauce is reduced and ready, add the roasted vegetables to it . Simmer gently for 5 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse. • Add the chopped olives and fresh basil leaves Stir and serve over your choice of pasta, drizzle with olive oil.
