Cast your net Simon Asphar goes surfing for a great classic car deal and finds the perfect site My old mate Harry is a classic car bore – endless weekend meets in windy fields and tedious drives holding up the Saturday traffic are his idea of fun. Well, what can you expect from an ex-public schoolboy? Just kidding! Actually, Harry’s a top bloke and he put me on to this brilliant web site I thought may be of interest to some of you, and not just the expublic schoolboys among you (there are other web sites out there for you!). Owners looking to sell their cherished historic vehicle have immediate, no-cost access to millions of potential buyers across the world through the ‘virtual showroom’ provided by www.classiccarsforsale.co.uk. Now celebrating its fifth birthday, the website regularly hits the number 1 spot as the mostvisited classic car industry site in Britain, with a market share approaching 50 per cent. In addition, it is in the top three per cent of all British automotive sites and is consistently one of the top ten per cent most visited of all the hundreds of thousands of websites, irrespective of subject, in the UK. The site receives an average of 0.5 million hits per day – 15 million a month. 225,000 unique visitors currently use it each month, and that figure is steadily growing, giving sellers an unrivalled opportunity to showcase their vehicle. Sellers can upload full details of their car, along with a selection of images, and it is immediately catalogued and displayed on the site, together with the vendor’s contact details. There is no charge to private vendors listing a car and no commission charged when it sells. Classic car dealers have also welcomed the immediate access to the vast audience that the site provides, so trade ads appear along with those from private sellers,
giving potential buyers plenty of scope to track down the car of their dreams. Over 700 dealers are already registered with the site – including 200 from overseas – and new dealer enquiries are received every day. The site is free to use for buyers, who can narrow their search down precisely, using several criteria, including marque and model, year, price, LHD/RHD and even colour. They can also register their requirements in the ‘Classic Cars Wanted’ section, allowing vendors to contact them should they have a suitable vehicle on offer. Or, they can use the ‘Classic Car Alert’ facility, whereby they input the make and model they are looking for, and the site automatically emails them when such a vehicle is listed for sale.
“As well as acting as a 24/7 online collectors’ car showroom, it is now a thriving community” Charles Leith, classiccarsforsale.co.uk’s sales director says: “We have had a tremendous response. Private sellers are delighted to have the opportunity to display their car online, free of charge, to potential buyers across the world, and dealers have been quick to promote vehicles through the site, appreciating again the unrivalled access it offers. And, whether they’re looking for a restoration project or a Concours beauty, buyers value the chance to search for a car at any time, day or night.”
www.classiccarsforsale.co.uk features cars for all tastes and budgets, ranging from starter classics like a Mini or Morris Minor for under £1,000 up to six-figure supercars and rare collectors’ machines. Private and trade vendors have found new homes for thousands of cars through the site, from venerable veterans to popular or exotic classics from the 1930s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s, up to ‘contemporary classics’ – or classics of tomorrow – from the 1990s and the present decade. Saloons, sportscars, estates, rally machines and racers have all sold to buyers who discovered them on the site. One very happy vendor sold his 1991 Mercedes 300SL in just seven days. During that time there were 126 online views and the owner received five emails and four phone calls from prospective buyers. Another private vendor commented, “Fantastic site. I sold my car easily and effortlessly following a very good response to the advert. Very friendly and helpful staff made the whole business hasslefree. It is by far the best online site for selling a classic or vintage car.” To mark its fifth anniversary, www.classiccarsforsale.co.uk has expanded its scope. As well as acting as a 24/7 online collectors’ car showroom, it is now a thriving community for classic car owners and fans. The ‘Workshop’ section carries comprehensive listings of historic motoring and motorsport events, links to a vast range of car clubs and classic dealers, and a database of marques. www.classiccarsforsale.co.uk issues a regular e-newsletter, keeping its visitors up to date on the classic car scene, and hosts a lively online forum for enthusiasts to discuss all manner of things classic motoring-related.

What Katie says What’s the point stating you’re pro-abortion says Katie – who wouldn’t be these days?
many unplanned and unwanted babies were born into unprepared lives. I don’t waste time claiming to be proabortion for the same reason that I don’t state I am pro women’s right to vote. Because the reason we have both those ’rights’ is that, this side of the 20th century, no one is stupid enough to argue we shouldn’t. But mainly, I am not pro-abortion because, for all the feminist fights I have sought to pick, the pro-abortion battle does not even appear on my radar. Who fights for something so depressing?
If this looks like a pro-abortion column then I might as well warn you at the beginning that it’s not meant to be one. I don’t want to turn just anything into columns. And a column championing abortion was the last thing I ever meant to write. Why? For a start, because stating you are ’pro-abortion’ always strikes me as as futile a declaration as stating you are pro-breathing. I mean, hell, this is 2007, right? It’s obvious isn’t it? Who would be anti a woman’s right to choose? Who could be short-sighted enough to have forgotten how bad things were for women, and their children as well, in the days when
Rap it up This is Zuby. Pretty isn’t he? Ahem. Actually that’s not the only reason I’ve included him in my side column, he’s also a rather fine rapper. A bit of an anomaly in the world of rap, Zuby’s an Oxford-educated student who knows his a cappella from his assonance and his nine bars from his nuances. Meanwhile he manages to keep his lyrics tight, compelling and original, whether he’s writing rhymes about poignant politics or freestyling about student life. “I don’t pretend that I’ve done or been through things that I haven’t,” says Zuby. “I try to express myself and make entertaining, positive music. God has blessed me and I want to be successful so that I can help the people who need it. That’s the dream that keeps me going.” So much more than a pretty face… See www.zubymusic.com or www.myspace.com/zubyuk
“Women enjoy abortions about as much as men enjoy vasectomies”
Image: Chris Ashfield
Women shouldn’t have to beg for their right to have abortion because – it may surprise you to learn – we don’t want them. There are far better things I can think of doing with my day off. While some women claim to have found their terminations no more intrusive than a cleansing colonic – and others are left dealing with the psychological damage for months, or even years, after – no woman (one imagines) would claim an abortion is a barrel of laughs. Women enjoy abortions about as much as men enjoy vasectomies – and of course we have them for the same reasons. So why aren’t the pro-lifers campaigning outside those clinics? Ironically, of course, women who have abortions do so because they are pro-life. But they are not naive, or selfish enough, to underestimate the amount of care it takes to bring a life into this world. Nor do they underestimate the damage that a child will wreak on their own lives (not to mention their bodies and careers). Finally, of course anti-abortionists who criticise women always conveniently forget one thing – that all too often women’s ’choice’ has been prompted by some boy lurking behind the scenes. So maybe if anyone should be writing pro-abortion columns, it should be them.

Eminemmylou The UK’s first and only rap and spoken-word column. This week featuring Gram Parsons Hippie Boy I was walking down the street the other day A sight came before my eyes It was a little hippie boy I must have been twice his size His appearence typified his strange breed Gaudy clothes long stringy hair hanging down I’d seen perhaps a thousand in my early trips to town As he walked on beside me on down the block I noticed no unpleasing smell He might have been on weed or even LSD But if he was I couldn’t tell So we walked together that way through this neighbourhood Finally he turned around to me And he said friend we’re a million miles apart But you know something we can enjoy the sunshine and the weather So why don’t we put our differences aside and just talk to each other You see this box beneath my arm to you it’s plain it has no charm But to someone dearest to my heart this box has played a tragic part This little one can’t tell you himself about his life and how he died But if anyone else could speak for him I guess I’m qualified This boy was in Chicago he didn’t know why he was there He was with his friends and family and he didn’t really care You might have been one of those who saw the struggle there On your television screen The tragic thing is so much else happened that no one else could have seen Stranger handed this boy a dollar to do a simple chore To carry a package to a nearby hotel And when he returned he’d get two more But when he came back he sort of lost his way walking thru the crowd One of them things you ask yourself, how the Lord allowed But when he was found he was like he is now, dreaming sweet and still And in his hand was a crumpled dollar bill Now you can take that dollar, get four cents on it compound it quarterly At any downtown bank So they can back some hot new tank or atom bomb Well what I’m going to tell you now, you can stay or you can leave You kind of listened to my story so far but just one more thing It’s the same for any hippie, bum or hillbilly out on the street Just remember this little boy and never carry more than you can eat Now could you help us sing this song, please There will be peace in the valley for him now we pray I will think of the little hippie boy that way Copyright © 1969 Irving Music Inc.

Dani’s diary Dani contemplates her return to the world of work, and decides it could be the only remedy for her shoe addiction I have a job interview. Hurrah! I’m kind of excited, but not massively so. But then, who ever is? Well, having an interview is a good excuse to wear those smart shoes I just had to buy. And getting a job will fund further unnecessary shoe purchases. God I’m such a clichéd girl. I have about 100 pairs of shoes and I only ever wear about four pairs in rotation, but something makes me buy more! I just love shoes more than most things and I’m not ashamed to admit it. So I have a shoe addiction. And now a job interview. It’s funny really, because when I had the breakdown last year and had to stop working, I didn’t think once about what job I’d go into when I got better, and it feels like as soon as I got better and could leave the house I was immediately asked by everyone: “When are you going to get a job?” So I have a job interview, mainly because other people think I should and not because I want to. Occasionally I feel I want to but, in truth, I’m really enjoying having some time to myself. I worked weekends when I was at secondary school. I worked in between classes and at the weekends when I started college. I worked six days a week after dropping out of college. I worked five days a week in an office. I worked five days and five nights and I worked three days and four nights. And then I had a breakdown.
“I’m such a clichéd girl. I have about 100 pairs of shoes, but something makes me buy more” Now I am enjoying the fact that for the first time ever I don’t have to go to work and I don’t understand why people see that as such a problem. I don’t claim benefits, and I don’t really borrow money, I get a tiny pay cheque for writing this and I make it last as long as possible. If I need extra cash I can normally pick up a couple of days work somewhere. Students get to have a year off – why can’t I have a ‘gap year’? So far all the time I’ve had off I’ve been panicking, so I would quite like to spend some more time healing. Granted it would be nice to have a bit more money, but that’s the only real downside. But I suppose that’s the reason most people get jobs in the first place – to earn money. I don’t think anyone works in a call centre for the sheer enjoyment. But if you do – no hard feelings! There are lots of things I want to do and nearly all of them involve having lots of money, so you have to work really, to do things that you like. No one wants to live to work – you want to work to live. But trying to sort that out can be pretty difficult, because no matter how hard you try most people seem to be ruled by their jobs: they are tired because they have been at work; they can’t go and do that because they have work in the morning; you must dress like this and think like that and talk like them. I must just be weird, but I just don’t like the idea. Perhaps I could start a brave new band of people who only do the things they want to! Or maybe not. So I’ll be going to work instead. Wish me luck.

Stick your oar in! An occasional series in which we ask the opinion of both celebrities and lowly proles on a local issue. This week – what did you think of the 2007 Brighton Festival? LOCAL COUNCILLOR MIKE GUULEY “I’m very happy to say that the festival has proved yet again an invaluable contribution to my pocket – I mean the cultural wellbeing of the bribes – money – town. I mean town. I look forward to next year’s, when I intend to buy a Mercedes.” ADAM TOSSER, FALMER “Did you see that Udderbelly? An upside down purple cow?! What – were they on drugs or something? Eh? Eh? I bet they were on drugs.
Or something. An upside down cow. Wooooo!” LOCAL COLUMNIST BARRY KIDDING “When this old warhorse was knee high to a grasshopper, the festival was host to such august names as Sir John Barbirolli, Michael Redgrave and the ever-graceful Margot Fontayne. These days it seems to be overrun with filth-mouthed, so-called ‘comedians’, burlesque nights, plays about gay sex, and ladyboys. Call me old-fashioned if you will, but I think they should all be rounded up and slowly garroted.” NICK CAVE “There’s a festival on? Strewth! I thought there was a lot of people about”
More facts you probably didn’t know about fantabulous Hove... 1) In German musical nomenclature, ‘Hove’ stands for the first four notes of the theme tune to Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence. 2) Hove is the second largest manufacturer of chocolate willies in the universe, the first being Gallifrey . 3) The Johnny Cash lyric ‘I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die’, was originally ‘I talked to a man in Aldrington about the chances of the SDP breaking the two-party system’, but was changed after a genie came to the legendary country singer in a dream and told him it was a rubbish lyric and would substantially harm his career. 4) One in every three Hove residents is a Mexican bandit. 5) A recent poll, asking people to name their favourite thing about Hove, revealed that ten per cent cited the vibrant nightlife, eight per cent opted for its ethnic diversity, eleven per cent favoured its heady sensuality and barely repressed erotic charge, while the rest went for the new Tesco on Church Road.
MRS BETTY RAMSBOTTOM (79), PATCHAM “Eeee. I do love those Open House trails. I so enjoy having a bit of a nose round, seeing what other people have got, running my fingers along their picture rails to see how clean they are, stealing their identities and messing their duvets. Can’t stick the art though – it’s crap.”
happy to say, it’s brimming over with filth-mouthed comedians, burlesque nights, plays about gay sex, and ladyboys. They all make Brighton and Hove the vibrant, diverse city we all know and love.”
LOCAL COLUMNIST BARRY KIDDING “When this old warhorse was knee-high to a grasshopper, the festival was host to such boring old fuddy-duddies as Sir John Barbirolli, Michael Redgrave, and the evertedious Margot Fontayne. They were duller than a wet weekend in Sidcup playing cribbage with your maiden aunt. These days, I’m
SOPHIE CLAIRE, BRIGHTON “I for one was very sad to see that the Gardner Arts Centre has closed down. As I used to run it.” FRED MARRIOTT (97), HANOVER “Would these street-theatre performers like it if I started walking my dog, buying groceries, crossing the road, chatting to friends I happened to bump into and parking my car at their venues? I bet they f*****g wouldn’t, the *****.”

LIBRA (SEP 23–OCT 22)
CAPRICORN (DEC 21–JAN 19)
This week skip, don’t walk! Putting a spring in your step will show people just how interesting you can be, leading the way to making new friends.
Everything is falling into place for you this week. A trip to Bardsley’s will be the perfect finishing touch, making everything else go right.
It’s the wrong time, wrong place and wrong weather to carry out those plans with your loved one. Instead, do something spontaneous this week.
Don’t wait to enjoy life. Take the plunge and go for it (Bardsley’s is a good place to start). Your daring will be rewarded.
TAURUS (APR 21–MAY 21)
LEO (JULY 23–AUG 22)
SCORPIO (OCT 23–NOV 21)
AQUARIUS (JAN 20–FEB 19)
You’re feeling the need to be needed this week. Maybe you need to get yourself down to Bardsley’s and meet new people. Failing that meet some new cod and chips.
Try sitting with your back to the world this week. If you can’t see them, they can’t see you and in your current state of mind that’s probably quite a good thing!
Be bold! The stars are in your favour this week so it’s time to take control and do exactly what you want. The world is at your feet. Use this as a springboard for world domination – or some chips.
It seems you can’t put a foot wrong this week. Everything keeps getting better and better! Remember, nothing lasts forever so make the most of it while you can.
GEMINI (MAY 22–JUNE 21)
VIRGO (AUG 23–SEP 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 22–DEC 20)
PISCES (FEB 20–MAR 20)
Things are all getting a bit much for you at the moment. Try to relax and go with the flow for a while. Who knows where you’ll end up. Possibly at Bardsley’s for some cracking nosh.
Honesty is the best policy this week Virgo, and you would do well to bear that in mind. However, all is not lost if you venture into Bardsley’s. Their chips are the best – honest!
Watch the stars this week and follow your zodiacal destiny. Try to avoid being led astray by duty or responsibility. Although being led to Bardsley’s would be advantageous.
Everything is getting out of control. It’s time to slow down and look around you. You really need to rediscover the real you. You’ll probably find yourself at Bardsley’s.

A laughing matter Victoria Nangle lets us in on a comedian’s secret – ‘the book’
“If a comedian goes on stage without having learned their set, it’s like paying for a bus ticket and having to sit on the roof. Or not getting ketchup with your chips” In case you’re worried, Bob did get his book back in the end safe and sound. But if you see comics trying out new material, maybe after the main show has finished, like Reginald D Hunter and Sarah Millican did when they last passed through the Komedia, that should be the only time you get to see a professional comic’s book. In fact, Reg was so used to going on stage without his book that he forgot it when he came back out and had to shout for someone to fetch it for him. Oh the power in those pages. And that is the only time you’ll see it, because if a comic hasn’t learned their set before they set foot on that stage, and you’re paying to see them, it’s a bit of a chizz really. It’s like not putting your new jumper in a bag when you leave the shop – unless you’re wearing it of course. Or being denied ketchup for your chips. Or paying for a bus ticket and having to sit on the roof. It’s just not what you bargained for and it’s not the full deal. But if you do get to see the book – in an appropriate environment – appreciate the diamonds in the rough.
Stand-up wisdom 43: “I used to sell furniture for a living. The trouble was, it was my own.” Les Dawson
Marc the vet The New Paul O’Grady Show’s Marc Abraham marvels at the world under the sea Picture: Roger Young
Every comic has a book. I’m not talking about something to read on the long train journeys to and from gigs – although sometimes it can be used for that – I’m talking about a jotter for notes, amusements, high jinx and downright gags. Each book is that comedian’s most precious possession. Promise. A comedian will often start their book when they first start pondering the idea of doing stand-up, so these books are like diaries. But funny ones. Every gag that they thought sounded quite good in their head but may have fallen flat on punters’ ears and then been dismissed in disgrace, and every mulling that got whittled into a chuckle and then into a fully fledged hilarious rant comes from these pages. So the biggest way to terrify any comic is to make them think they’ve lost their book. It’s only a funny thing to do until they find out and punch you. Or disintegrate into a puddle of shaking tears. Depending on the comic’s stage persona. About 10 years ago legendary workhorse comic Bob Monkhouse had his book stolen. Tailspin alert immediately and huge amounts of money offered as a reward for its safe return. Not only had he lost all of his gags he’d so carefully tailored but he’d lost all of the gags he might allegedly have acquired from professional gag writers. There’s money in them thar rib-ticklers and if you’ve forked out for a doozie of a chuckler and know that you’re the only one with rights on it, it might make you a tad fretful if your safety deposit box on a page goes missing. Bit of a whoops all right.
I’d ask my friends to come and see An octopus’s garden with me I’d like to be under the sea In an octopus’s garden in the shade. The Beatles – Octopus’s Garden, 1969 Did you know that Ringo Starr penned those lyrics after learning how octopuses travel along the sea bed picking up stones and shiny objects with which to build gardens? It was one of the happiest things he had ever heard. But have you ever Lesser Octopus wondered what octopuses really keep in their garden? Well, this Saturday, you’ll never have a better chance to find out, as what lives both under the sea and what’s hidden in the shade will be on show for all to enjoy and touch.
“Have you ever wondered what octopuses really keep in their garden? This Saturday, you can find out” For us thousands of nature lovers lucky enough to live in Sussex, we all share a fascination, great respect and even an obsession for, the sea. From phenomenal year-round hypnotic sunsets to those crazy winter storms, daily mackerel fishing boats or even just simple walks on the beach – there really is so much to captivate and entrance our sensitive souls. So if what lives and breathes in and on our seas also fascinates you, your kids, or even your mother-in-law, then this Saturday’s Adur World Oceans Day is a definite date for your diary. Personally, I love this event and wouldn’t miss it for the world – it’s a unique opportunity to introduce children to the mysterious undersea and seashore world. There are not only live exhibits of hardy marine creatures such as lobsters, crabs and fish, but also a variety of exhibits on the ocean environment, including strandline touch tables, sea anemones, mermaid’s purses and even prawns. Shoreham-by-Sea has a long history of sea-faring and fishing, so why not celebrate this tradition and local connections with the sea, as well as promoting the protection of the marine environment. Organised by the British Marine Life Study Society with Adur and West Sussex councils, the Priority Emergency Treatment Service (PETS) is once again proud to support this event – and I’ll be helping out with the lobsters and crabs! Bring the whole family and allow at least a couple of hours to participate in the activities. Refreshments will be available on the Green and nearby cafés and shops. See you there! Adur World Oceans Day, Saturday 2 June, 10am–4pm, Coronation Green, Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex, free admission.

Majic Majid Andrew Kay talks to Majid Bensliman about The Blue Man’s new premises Majid is Tuareg, descended from a desert tribe and raised in Algeria. He has been in the UK for the last 16 years and first came here when he was playing professional international football as part of the Algerian team. ‘‘I had played in France and there was a chance of playing for an English team but it never happened. It was then that I decided it was time to realise my childhood dream and open a restaurant called The Blue Man. It was an idea I first had when I was only 14, even the name.’’ As the youngest in a family of 13, Majid spent a great deal of his childhood in the kitchen helping his mother and grandmother with cooking and chores. ‘‘Food became my language and it has remained with me. At The Blue Man it is me in the kitchen cooking those dishes from my childhood and using many of my grandmother’s recipes. My mother comes over regularly to help with the menus and recipes for the restaurant. Back home she is Mrs Food – if there is a wedding and my mother is not cooking then it’s not a very special wedding.’’ Majid first opened in Edward Street six years ago with his partner Georgi. ‘‘We had only 12 chairs and no menu, I would simply cook what was in the kitchen and tell the customers what was available each day. We lived upstairs and my daughter grew up there. We used to have no licence so we were BYO but in our new premises we can sell drinks. Even so I would like to give my customers great value so our house wines are £9.50 and from North Africa.’’ The premises in the centre of town are warm and welcoming, the décor is traditional with rich hangings, coloured lanterns and low leather seating. Already Majid is making it his own, a new carved front door, a rail to be installed outside for drinking fresh mint tea… Regulars love the new venue but new people are discovering the delights of Majid’s North African magic.

The Burt Brill & Cardens’ Graduate Show 2007 University of Brighton, Grand Parade Saturday 2 – Thursday 7 June Will Thorburn
Over 500 students from the University of Brighton will be showcasing their work from 2-7 June at the acclaimed Burt Brill and Cardens’ Graduate Show 2007. An annual highlight of the arts calendar for the south, the university’s renowned Faculty of Arts and Architecture is transformed into a massive gallery displaying work in a staggering range of medias and subject areas from 25 courses. Attracting over 15,000 visitors each year, the graduate show is accompanied by a bumper programme of activities in the university garden, including the much talked about Graduate Fashion Show on Saturday 2 June (tickets are required) and a Family Day with the return of the hugely popular Big Knit where novices and professionals come together with their knitting needles on Sunday 3 June. There is also the Charity Fashion Show by first and second year students on Tuesday 5 June and live music performances at lunchtimes. The university prides itself on producing some of the UK’s most talented artists and designers. Past graduates include legendary Biba designer Barbara Hulanicki and Turner Prize-winners Keith Tyson and Rachel Whiteread. Fashion graduate Julien Macdonald was voted British Designer of the Year 2001 and Gresham Blake has become modish tailor to style-conscious stars and listed in Time Out as one of Brighton’s new wave of entrepreneurs. Keren Craig has also had outstanding success as one half of fashion duo Marchesa, the British couture label and must-have brand among Hollywood celebrities. This is an ideal opportunity to discover the next generation of budding artists; you can explore exhibits, commission artwork or build an art collection from students before they become stars. latest 7 15
GRADUATE SHOW Tamara Elliott
Designers of the future… Katharine Beech
Those exhibiting their work this year include critical and fine art practice students Will Thorburn, with an explicit and edgy take on the fusion of art and science, and Sally Cresswell, whose exhibition was inspired by her community work at Moulsecoomb allotments. Fashion and textiles student Tamara Elliott, who has just secured a job in New York with American Eagle, will be showcasing her collection alongside Jill Robertson’s asymmetric designs. A vibrant collection will be showcased by Nikki Fishpool who completed a successful placement with Marks & Spencer. Knitwear student Alexandra Geldenhuys has used recycled and organic materials to produce her collection, not only to reduce her impact on the environment but to demonstrate the potential use of these resources. Wood-carved fashion accessories by Katharine Beech from the ever-popular wood, metal, ceramics and plastics course add yet another dimension to this exhibition of fresh talent. On graduating she intends to set up a studio in Brighton to continue her designs. Inspirational new trends in building design will be unveiled by the School of Architecture, including a human-powered walking wheel by architecture student Konstantinos Chalaris. This design won a prize from the Royal Society of Arts. Graphic designer Alex Bec has combined his time at university with starting a publication and company by the same name – If You Could. His project entitled ‘The Eye is Blind if the Mind is Absent’ uses photography to trick the eye of the viewer.

People’s Art Award Burt Brill and Cardens’ David Edwards proudly reintroduces the University of Brighton Graduate Show’s prize – the People’s Art Award sponsored by Latest Homes and Juice 107.2. Back by popular demand for the second year running, the prize will be awarded to a successful graduate from the university’s Faculty of Arts and Architecture. David heads one of Brighton’s most reputable and long-standing firms of solicitors, Burt Brill and Cardens, which has been sponsoring the University of Brighton degree shows for the past 12 years. The firm’s support has enabled it to become one of the main highlights in the city’s cultural calendar, attracting over 15,000 visitors over five days every June. David’s enthusiastic support has ensured that every graduating artist and designer is given the invaluable opportunity to showcase their talent. Indeed without Burt Brill and Cardens’ long-standing loyalty, the massive public exhibition of work could not exist. David acknowledges his company’s integral role: “It’s so important to nurture artistic talent, especially in a world where creative expression can be eclipsed by monetary value. When I visit the degree shows, I am consistently impressed by the variety and quality of work, in particular the passionate ideas and thought processes that drive the work.” Burt Brill and Cardens’ commitment to raising the profile of significant students’ achievements is demonstrated by its investment in important awards, including the People’s Art Award, which is backed by Latest Homes and Juice 107.2. The People’s Art Award will invite the general public to vote for their favourite graduate’s work. “The People’s Art Award is a great opportunity for every visitor to say which piece they like – which may be quite different to work selected from the academic staff at the university,” David explains. “I think people will have a pretty good view of what is a great piece of art or design; indeed, the collective wisdom has a great deal going for it! I’m really looking forward to seeing what people think.” You can take part in the Burt Brill and Cardens’ People’s Art Award by filling in a voting card available at the university reception on Grand Parade. The award will be presented to the winning student on Thursday 7 June and an interview will be broadcast on Juice 107.2. You can also read about the winner and see a portfolio of their work in Latest Homes.

Zara Friend leaves it to the professionals at Beauty Works and gets a perfect pre-holiday St Tropez tan
A pre-holiday checklist might contain the following: new swimwear, sun hat, flip-flops and a St Tropez spray tan. As more of us opt for a pre-holiday tan, selftanning product sales have soared, and it seems we really are spoilt for choice. However, with the good inevitably comes some bad, whether it’s a streaky tan, the not so attractive Tango orange look or the products that wear off on your light-coloured clothes. It’s a minefield out there, and for an easy and professional option celebrities swear by, the St Tropez air spray tan is the only way to fake it. I was invited along to Beauty Works in Portslade to try out the latest in self-tanning innovation.
Before tanning Beauty Works prepare clients with some advice before going along. Top of the list was to exfoliate the night before, preparing the skin for the tan application, paying special attention to the elbows, knees and feet. You are also told not to shave or wax on the day of the treatment and to avoid wearing make-up and perfume, which may affect the tanning. On the day, wear dark, loose-fitting clothing. For the actual tanning, paper panties are provided or you can take along your own swimwear. The St Tropez air spray tan is UV-free, meaning it’s completely safe. Some clients choose to have one done every few weeks for a natural tan all year round. A treatment can make a great gift or it can just be done for you before you step out in your new beachwear. Male and females both go for the air spray tan, as the application is easier and applied more evenly than bottled lotions.
The St Tropez experience Greeted by the experienced St Tropez-trained team in the relaxing surroundings at Beauty Works, a gown is provided while the tanning booth is prepared. Hair is wrapped in a turbietowel, leaving the face and ears exposed for tanning. Stepping into the booth, the tanning liquid is prepared in a bottle ready to airspray on. A member of the Beauty Works team applies the spray tan with the air brush, starting with the face. The spray is quite cold but it’s not an uncomfortable experience in the slightest. It’s an easy application that covers the entire body, paying careful attention to the underarms, hands and feet to ensure an even tan all over. After a once-over, a second application is made immediately to ensure no areas have been missed. The tanning takes just 10 minutes, and the air spray gives a perfect, streak-free finish that forms a natural golden brown tan.
Aftercare Right away, the skin takes on a healthy bronzed glow. The tan develops fully in four to eight hours, but you are dressed just minutes after the application. It’s a truly stress-free pampering experience that was so simple. Forget DIY lotions and opt for a lasting natural tan care of a professional team. St Tropez offers a great aftercare set too, with a special moisturiser to maintain the tan, an exfoliating body polish to ensure it fades evenly and a bottle of self-tanning lotion to use between treatments.
Special reader offer at Beauty Works Experience the St Tropez air spray tan firsthand at Beauty Works, Portslade. Beauty Works are offering 25 per cent off spray tans (usually £35) until 16 June and a further opportunity to win a free tan when you pick up a scratch card in the salon.The first 15 people who book an appointment mentioning this article in Latest 7 will receive the St Tropez aftercare set (rrp £15) for free.

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD&DRINK
Barn to rights Andrew Kay joins friends at Cromwells at Golding Barn in Small Dole Given my recent lack of enthusiasm for drink I had absolutely no problem nominating myself as driver for a trip out to dinner with friends. Daniel and Lynne live in Bramber, one of the county’s prettiest villages and as yet remarkably unspoiled. They had already been to Cromwells and were enthusiastic enough to persuade me to join them for dinner. I gladly accepted the offer and by 7pm on a sunny late spring evening joined them for a pre-dinner tipple at their home before making the short journey to Small Dole. It’s not the prettiest of place names is it and, frankly, few could actually get to see how pretty it is as the main road that runs north to Henfield is filled with speeding traffic. More fool them as the view west is amongst the best in Sussex. The flood plain of the Adur looks almost untouched, small fields are dotted with small dwellings and in the distance, on a clear day, you can see Bramber Castle rising above the village.
Sponsored by Lynne’s duck was a far prettier affair and one that she declared delicious. In fact it was almost impossible for even Dan to get a taste. We drank a good bottle of Italian red, Dan’s choice, and sat and enjoyed the busy atmosphere as the sun finally settled over Steyning in the distance. When the waiter returned for our dessert choices, Lynne rather cleverly excused herself and popped to the ladies. A clever ruse I guess to avoid the agony of reading about puddings when you perhaps feel that you should not have one – although, quite frankly, she has little to worry about as she has the figure of a mere slip of a girl, no doubt one of the reasons why Dan is so clearly infatuated with her. There is something very nice about spending time with people who are inordinately fond of each other but can express their love without making you feel like a spare rick at the hay wain. I of course had no qualms about ordering a bread and butter pudding with crème Anglaise. It was good too but the bread I thought too much like cake and therefore a tad too sweet. I also don’t think that a good bread and butter pudding requires custard, after all the mortar that holds it together is exactly that – eggy custard. Dan chose an apple spring roll which was a good idea, prettily presented but rather heavy-handed in the making. The pancake casing was just a touch too thick. Lynne returned from her ablutions in time to wield a spare spoon cleverly provided by the waiter. Coffee was excellent, double espressos served piping hot just as I like them. We chattered and eventually went out into the crisp, clear night where the garden was lit with candles and lanterns. The owners certainly go the whole way to make this an enjoyable experience and our bill at around £30 each seemed more than fair. Judging by how full they were I guess that booking has become essential but they are always open for breakfast, lunch and tea if you are passing. Cromwells at Golding Barn, Henfield Road, Small Dole, West Sussex. Call 01903 815999 or see www.cromwellsatgoldingbarn.co.uk
Passionate about property, fanatical about food 59 Church Road, Hove 01273 735237 www.callaways.co.uk
‘‘It sounded an odd combination but one that I sensed, if they could pull it off, would be rather good. It was’’ It was a clear day too but at that point not warm enough to dine outside, sad really as the grounds and gardens at Cromwells are very nice indeed. We went in and were led to our table by a sombrero-toting waiter. I started to panic – was I in for some Tex-Mex nightmare, never my favourite cuisine. It appeared that it was a part of a series of dining around the world events but happily for me there was no Mexican food left so we could head straight to the à la carte without any qualms. The building itself is quaint and pretty, designed with a Provençal feel that strangely does not seem out of place. It’s also spotlessly clean, squeakily so, and the staff are uniformly attractive. I did have a slight Stepford Waiters moment but I was soon distracted by the food. The dinner menu was pleasantly short but not without plenty of temptations. Lynne settled on smoked salmon with little hesitation, a choice I have seen her make several times, and with Springs Smokery just down the road it seemed like the intelligent choice. She was not disappointed. Both Dan and I fancied the scallops, which came with caramelised cauliflower purée. Now I have no idea how you set about caramelising cauli but have to report that it was rather good, nutty perhaps, certainly not burnt. The scallops too were good if a little small, but they were well treated, sweet and juicy and barely cooked, just right in fact. Dan and I stuck to matching main courses too, both attracted to the saddle of Sussex lamb stuffed with a cumin pesto. It sounded an odd combination but one that I sensed, if they could pull it off, would be rather good. It was. The meat was meltingly tender, the fat in a fine line sweet and creamy and the skin crisp. The stuffing, with its rich Indian spicing, made a perfect balance and celeriac mash a good bland foil for the other parts. The sauce was good too. Strangely however the presentation was clumsy, a surprise after our very prettily arranged starters. The pommes dauphinoise was perfect, just the right amount of cream and seasoning to hold the sliced waxy potatoes together.

Also showing... A quick look at all this week’s releases 28 Weeks Later (18) Dir: Juan Carlos Fresnadillo This entirely unnecessary sequel to the excellent 28 Days Later transplants wit and nerve for all out gore and shock tactics. Set six months after the initial outbreak, this time the US army are drafted in to help quell a further outbreak as things go all zombie yet again. Robert Carlyle stars as the perpetual running-away-from-horde-of-zombies character while Rose Byrne adds a touch of classy grit. While not quite as subtle or original as the previous outing, this is still packed with scares and thrills. (3/5) Showing at Cineworld and Odeon Bridge to Terabithia (PG) Dir: Gabor Csupo Based on the 1970s classic book by Katherine Paterson, this faithful rendering tells the story of two reluctant childhood friends and their adventures in a fantasy world. While without the charm of classic Disney or Pixar, this is a film that works to its own distinctive beat and offers something a little different to the usual kiddie fodder. (3/5) Showing at Cineworld and Odeon Charlotte’s Web (U) Dir: Gabor Csupo This latest big screen adaptation of the classic E B White story follows Wilbur the pig as the end of the farming season approaches and Wilbur realises he’s destined for the dinner table. He quickly hatches a plan with Charlotte, a spider that lives in his pen, to ensure his survival. Pretty much the whole of Hollywood turns up to add their vocal talents to various farmyard animals. Steve Buscemi is a Rat, Julia Roberts the spider, Oprah Winfrey a goose, John Cleese a sheep, Robert Redford a horse, and perhaps most oddly Andre 3000 from Outkast stars as a crow. Dakota Fanning is the token cute child in a film that is as sweet as it is sentimental. (3/5) Showing at Odeon Jindabyne (15) Dir: Ray Lawrence This tale of guilt and responsibility in the Australian outback stars Gabriel Byrne and the always excellent Laura Linney. The story tells of a man (Byrne) who goes hunting with his friends only to come across the body of a dead girl. They decide to continue on their hunting trip before reporting the missing girl to the local authorities. Upon his return Byrne encounters his wife (Linney) who questions her husband’s moral virtue. The direction is suitably restrained and the two central performances are perfectly pitched. (3/5) Showing at Duke of York’s Magicians (15) Dir: Andrew O’Connor This big screen offering from the people behind the fantastic Channel 4 comedy, Peep Show, is a mixed bag. While both Mitchell & Webb are present, as are a host of other key performers and writers from the show, the film never quite manages to fully fill out the screen. Telling the tale of two rival magicians who fall out after a guillotine trick goes horribly wrong, this is British comedy in its most average guise. Don’t get me wrong, the jokes hit the mark and an acidic wit runs throughout, but something vital is lost in translation from the small screen to the big screen. (3/5) Showing at Cineworld Mr Bean’s Holiday (PG) Dir: Steve Bendelack Rowan Atkinson returns in his second cinematic caper as the hapless Mr Bean. This time Bean goes on holiday only for his video diaries to be accidentally screened at the illustrious Cannes Film Festival. Willem Defoe co-stars as Atkinson delivers another mildly
autistic performance as Bean in a film best described as average. (2/5) Showing at Worthing Theatres Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (12A) Dir: Gore Verbinski This third and hopefully final installment in the Captain Jack Sparrow show sees Captain Barbossa, Will Turner, and Elizabeth Swann sail off the edge of the map, navigate treachery and betrayal, and make one last heroic stand at sea. All this whilst trying to save Jack and fight for survival. Chow Yun Fat pops up as a Singapore pirate captain and a certain Rolling Stone makes a much anticipated cameo with dreadlocks and all. Still totally indulgent nonsense, but fun nonetheless. (3/5) Showing at Cineworld, Odeon, and Worthing Robots (U) Dir: Chris Wedge and Carlos Saldanha This 2005 offering from 20th Century Fox is a mildly diverting animated effort. Telling the story of robot Rodney Copperbottom as he tries to make it in Robot City. The basic premise is pretty much your usual underdog triumph story but the vocal talents of Robin Williams, Ewen McGregor, Halle Berry, James Earl Jones, Mel Brooks, Paul Giamatti, and Jim Broadbent give the film a certain kudos. Despite the big budget and famous stars this still doesn’t match the originality of Pixar. (3/5) Showing at Duke of York’s Spider-Man 3 (12A) Dir: Sam Raimi The third installment in the Spidey franchise sees the webslinger multitask as he fights enemies on three fronts as well as his own burgeoning ego. The Green Goblin makes a return alongside new villians, The Sandman and Venom. This time round Peter Parker’s life is going swimmingly until a strange black goo from outer space lands on earth. Spiderman must fight for his family, Mary Jane, and – somewhat predictably – the inhabitants of New York City. The effects are outlandish and the story somewhat convoluted but the humanity and energy of the film shines through. (3/5) Showing at Odeon and Cineworld Venus (15) Dir: Roger Michell This recent award-touting film finds Peter O’Toole at his most crusty and debauched. With a script by resident novelist extraordinaire, Hanif Kureisihi, the film tells the story of two ageing actors whose lives are turned upside down when they encounter a young and brash teenage girl. O’Toole is matched at every corner by a rejuvenated Leslie Phillips (for once free of his catchphrase stereotyping) and the always dependable Richard Griffiths, so brilliant in Withnail & I and The History Boys. While at times seeming cloying and slightly pervy, the overall feeling of lives lived to the full forges a soft but nervy film, full of charm. (3/5) Showing at Odeon Zodiac (15) Dir: David Fincher Fincher returns after a long break with this adaptation of the Robert Graysmith books about the real-life serial killer from the 60s and 70s, Zodiac. Jake Gyllenhall is superb in the lead role while Robert Downey Jr and Brian Cox add some charm and grit. While not as riveting or fast paced as Fincher’s previous efforts, Seven or Fight Club, this is still a clever little thriller in a similar vein to such seventies classics as All the President’s Men and The Parallax View. A dark and muddled gem that takes its time to warm up but, once it does, exerts a fascinating grip. (3/5) Showing at Cineworld and Odeon
L7 lowdown Hear the tiger roar New releases reviewed
Black Snake Moan (15) Director: Craig Brewer This new film from Hustle & Flow director Brewer is a somewhat odd account of a God-fearing bluesman (Samuel L Jackson) who enslaves a wild young woman (Christina Ricci). She, as a victim of childhood sexual abuse, keeps looking everywhere for love and yet never quite finds it. While the central conceit is at times painfully misogynistic, the two leads give outstanding performances and offer a heartfelt mix of love, hate, pain, and regret. The script does occasionally slip into the mundane but this is a film with a sweet authenticity, even if that sweetness is at times politically questionable. Craig Driver Showing at Cineworld
The Hitcher (15)
Letters From Iwo Jima (15)
Director: Clint Eastwood This companion piece to Eastwood’s Flags of our Fathers is far more effective than its American counterpart and offers a Japanese viewpoint of the fateful battle at Iwo Jima. Ken Watanabe heads a cast made up of some of the finest actors to come out of Japan, China, and Korea. Where Eastwood’s American effort sometimes felt laboured and irksome this film manages its subtleties with far more dignity and grace. A sombre but poetic film. Showing at Odeon
Paradise Lost (18)
Director: Scott Derrikson Perhaps the most cheeky movie to be released in quite some time, this is a big screen adaptation of John Milton’s 1667 epic poem. With a budget in excess of $100 million the film focuses on the actual war of archangels – the battle between God’s and Satan’s army – instead of the Adam/Eve storyline. While the film couldn’t ask for more impressive source material the fact that director Derrikson is responsible for such duds as Hellraiser: Inferno and the screenplay for Urban Legends: Final Cut should have academics choking on their thesauruses. Silly, violent, and undeniably flawed this is an experience best described as surreal. Showing at Cineworld
Director: Dave Meyers Twenty one years on from the original Robert Harmon flick Hollywood has deemed it time to remake a film that wasn’t even that good first time round. In this new and gory offering Rutger Hauer is replaced by human breeze block Sean Bean as he continues his one man attempt to bore the world. The basic premise centres around a young couple who must run for their lives from a murderous hitcher. With a running time of 97 minutes this is a film an hour and a half too long. Showing at Cineworld and Worthing
Craig Driver licks his lips in anticipation as the 2007 Tiger Film Festival hits our fair city for the first time
Running from 31 May to 3 June, OORT and Terracotta Media present a four-day showcase of the latest Far East films, mixed with a wide array of club nights and themed events in and around Brighton. The Tiger Festival – unsurprisingly sponsored by Tiger beer – is a brand new addition to the international film festival circuit and sees Asian cinema finally get some much deserved exposure down by the sea. The opening night party on 31 May will be held at Concorde 2. It will feature the finest quality hip hop, breaks and soul from the visionary producer (and one half of 4hero) Marc Mac, plus The Qemists (the new signing to Ninja Tunes) with an inventive three-man DJ set. The film festival, itself, starts on 1 June and will feature six new films from the Far East, all to be screened at Brighton’s home of independent cinema, the Duke Of York’s Picturehouse. With titles ranging from action and drama to melodrama and comedy, this looks set to be a festival with a difference. It opens with Satoshi Kon’s award-winning animé epic Paprika on 1 June. Telling the story of a machine that allows therapists to enter their patients’ dreams, this is animé at its most surreal and ambitious. On 2 June, the festival continues apace as Zhang Yimou’s latest festival favourite, Riding Alone For Thousands Of Miles hits the screen. Unlike his recent martial arts efforts, this is a much more understated, deeply poetic film about a Japanese father who travels to China to film a famous folk-opera singer. On the same day (in the evening) there is a screening of the 2004 Thai horror, Shutter. Telling the story of a couple who are haunted by their photographs, this will be remade in Hollywood next year, so catch the original while you can. After the screening there is a Tiger Festival party taking place at Sussex Arts Club. Bringing together the UK’s best upcoming soul, electronica and hip hop talent, the event will feature Elmore Judd and Eric Lau plus guests. Elmore Judd – the alter ego of Jesse Hackett – is performing with his full band, including brother Louis Slipperz (aka RawDog). Gilles Peterson is a fan, and you should be too. The final day of the Tiger Film Festival kicks off in the morning with Johnny To’s Hong Kong cop thriller, PTU. This is followed in the afternoon by a screening of Xiaogang Feng’s, The Banquet, a loose adaptation of Hamlet set in the 10th century Chinese Tang Dynasty. The film stars Ziyi Zhang of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon fame. The festival closes with Wilson Yip’s explosive martial arts epic, Dragon Tiger Gate. This year, the Tiger Festival will serve as a brief-but-thrilling forerunner to next year’s week-long festival, which will occupy a post-Cannes slot. With some of the most original and surprising films to come out of the East, the festival crams more into three days than most festivals do in a week. To blag one of 300 free tickets to the opening night party just email your name and favourite Far East film to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t delay, though, it’s first come first served!

Wedding Daze (15)
Director: Michael Ian Black This frothy but ambitious romantic comedy finds Jason Biggs fresh out of a relationship with the perfect girl and looking for love. Dared by his best friend to propose to the first girl he sees, he gets down on one knee and proposes to waitress Isla Fisher. Mayhem ensues as she agrees and the couple find themselves meeting the parents and friends, all the time trying to get to know each other. This kind of schtick only really works when the script is tight and, unfortunately with Wedding Daze, this is not the case. Biggs is charming while Fisher is suitably kooky but, in the end, this is farcical stuff brimming over with sentiment. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon latest 7 25
THE BIG GIG
THIS WEEK Kevin Montgomery and Tommy Allsup Mouth-watering double bill of American roots music. While the contemporary yet timeless feel of Kevin Montgomery’s (pictured) music is strongly influenced by the California country rock of artists like Gram Parsons, The Eagles and Roger McGuinn, his deeply resonant songwriting also recalls the Americana-flavoured storytelling of Bruce Springsteen and Jackson Browne. On the other hand, Tommy Allsup is a living legend having made music since the late 1940s. A massive supporter of ‘western swing’, he most famously played lead guitar with Buddy Holly & The Crickets in the final year of Holly’s life (he escaped the fatal plane crash that killed Holly and two members of his band by tossing a coin to determine if either himself or Ritchie Valens would take the last seat) and produced many of the greats of country music including Bob Wills & The Playboys and Willie Nelson. Mon 4 June, The Greys Pub, 01273 680734

Latest 7’s Top 5 records James Yorkston Roaring The Gospel (album Domino) Following last year’s rather dreary and depressing The Year of the Leopard, Yorkston has a skip in his step, and a warm glow in his heart as he and his friends (including King Creosote) pleasantly amble their way through some inspired country, roots and folk numbers. Influenced by English and Scottish folk as well as esoteric music from around the world, here is a gorgeous collection of ramshackle traditionals and originals that demonstrate a finely-tuned grasp of the dynamics of story-telling, and which sound perfectly suited to lazy, hazy summer days in the park.
Josh Pyke Memories & Dust (album Island) Aussie singer songwriter in the story-telling mould. Fluid, gorgeous songs in Elliot Smith style.
The Pigeon Detectives Wait For Me (album Dance To The Radio) New indie punks who swagger like The Clash and The Strokes but with a poppier, more yoofful edge.
Candie Payne I Wish I Could Have Loved You More (album Deltasonic) Well-produced homage to 1960s film scores and lounge vibes. All the songs sit atop a funky groove while Payne impresses with a bit of Beth Gibbons and Dusty Springfield.
Bonde do Role With Lasers (album Domino) Brazilian eccentric and leftfield electro mash-up. Like CS, but with a bit more depth and despair.
What is it about dour, robo-bands from the UK that make megabucks such as Depeche Mode and these boys? Chris Lowe’s and Neil Tennant’s highly synthesised melodic pop and dance music is overlaid with pseudo-intelligent lyrics about fashionistas, trendies, eccentrics and wannabes. Sure, the lyrics often contain hidden meanings and an antiestablishment slant that endears them to the more liberal, leftof-centre in us. And, yes, their ‘anti-rock’ manifesto is suited to the surprisingly large numbers of people out there who really don’t like traditional music. But personally I’ve never managed to find any satisfaction whatsoever in their limp, insipid, mediocre and soulless synth pop manifesto that refuses to grow into anything beyond an icy, ‘arty’ and frigid coolness. And yet, I still take my hat off to them for managing to con so many… Wed 30 May, Brighton Centre, 0870 900 9100
The Thermals Portland, Oregon threepiece signed to Sub Pop (famously home to Nirvana) currently in the middle of a UK tour supporting Wakefield’s The Cribs. This is a oneoff headlining show for this driving, no-frills, indie-rock band who are influenced by the 1980s hardcore scene that shook the complacency of American punks via such incendiary bands as Minutemen, Hüsker Dü and Fugazi. Brighton’s Shrag are in support. Wed 30 May, Ocean Rooms, Brighton, 01273 699069

BRIGHTON SCENE A weekly round-up of what’s happening in the local Brighton and Sussex music scene Aussie boys The Stirring (Fri 1 June, Komedia) re-located as a band (they were known as Audience in Australia) last year to Brighton where they have been ploughing their no nonsense, straight-ahead rock furrow. This gig is being recorded with a view to releasing the result later in the year. Supporting them is Lee ‘Muddy’ Baker and his My Federation who recently played a couple of gigs at The Great Escape festival and have been winning praise for their upbeat psychedelic-based rock. A couple of local bands to look out for this week are the wonderful Aaron King Band (Tues 29 May, Joogleberry) and Shrag (Wed 30 May, Ocean Rooms). Aaron is a very talented pianist and singer songwriter who writes dark indie pop music that combines Shrag evocative harmonies with double-edged lyrics and irresistible hooks. They are Matt Eaton of Actress Hands supporting Britonica. Meanwhile, art rockers Shrag (featuring former Latest 7 writer Russell Warrior on bass) write witty, none-too-subtle new wave type ditties that have seen them being snapped up by the Where It’s At Is Where You Are label. They are currently in the middle of a tour with The Cribs and The Thermals, although for this gig there will only be The Thermals to contend with. Local indie rockers Actress Hands are signed to the local Life Is Easy label and have a new single out this week, the (hopefully) appropriately entitled Summer Days. Matt Eaton and co strip back to the basics with a driving, harmony-drenched and rhythmic homage to hay fever. New album Show Madelaine should see the light of day next month. It’s a busy month in the world of music venues – as well as Barfly taking over the Brighton Gloucester for a mixed bag of live indie music and club action, it’s also been announced that the Academy Group has taken over the fabulous Hippodrome in Middle Street (previously a venue for all the greats of music and comedy such as The Beatles (yes, them!) and Laurel & Hardy, and more recently (eyes down now) bingo. Let’s hope that these music ‘chains’ don’t attempt to commodify and homogenise the generally eclectic, independent and adventurous music scene here in groovy little ‘ole Brighton. A case in point is the Joogleberry Playhouse which has strived long and hard to be a full-time live venue, often promoting unknown acts and sticking their necks out a bit. Well, it celebrates its fourth birthday on 4 June, raising a glass to another great year for this essential live venue. The night kicks off at 6pm and will feature tapas, and live band Ed Meme & The Forms, Brighton funk ambassadors.

THE MONTH AHEAD Tom McRae Highly regarded singer songwriter who is rightfully recognised for his intelligent song craft and beguiling vocals. His new album King of Cards has just been released, and is another superb collection of heartfelt lyrics (based around the theme of escape, identity and disappearance) and memorable melodies. Part of the initial wave of singer songwriters that sprang up at the end of the last century, his previous three albums, including the Mercury Music prize nominated debut Tom McRae, have all been highly acclaimed. Tues 5 June, Concorde 2, Brighton, 01273 673311
Manic Street Preachers Back in the pre-New Wave of New Wave days (for those who don’t remember, it was a thankfully short-lived movement of glam obsessed new wave bands in the early 1990s) there was a Welsh punk band who combined politicised lyrics and actions with a punk rock aesthetic infused with a touch of rock glam. Catching the imagination in a time of hedonistic Madchester (no bad thing) and the self-loathing shoegazing (almost invariably risible) movement the band quickly collected a rabid following who lapped up their sophisticated media manipulation techniques, and stated desire to sell out and get out quickly. Of course, history has not been so kind to the Manics – they persist, and will be remembered as the band that hammered the last nail in the coffin of rock’n’roll as rebellion. Send Away The Tigers is their new album. Wed 6 June, Dome, 01273 709709

I’m ill. The baby is sitting up pulling out all of my record collection – luckily that shelf is mostly records from my childhood, such as Five Star. She is currently dribbling all over a Richard Pryor album that I didn’t even know I owned. It wouldn’t matter if it was a prized rare Jazzman 7-inch, my head feels like it has been under the wheels of a bus. I can’t move. My head is stuffed up, my throat is sore and I have a stye – I look like one of Liam Gallagher’s ex-wives, blonde and rough. The baby is chewing on my record bag. I should really stop her but, hey, maybe it’s helping her teeth pierce through the gum… No one tells you the teeth take ages to grow out once they first appear. I thought the appearing through the gum was the tedious bit, but it’s been three weeks and still one tooth is only halfway out. It looks like she has a bit of cottage cheese permantly stuck in her mouth. She just put her fingers in the VHS player. I said “no” in a firm voice but no, instead she laughs and giggles so cutely and says something like “gugggugg”, obviously delighted to have got any response from me this morning at all. OK now she has my Stone Roses EP out… I’ve gotta get up and put the records back. Oh, by the way, the baby is standing and crawling! It all happened in about two days, she went from a sitting baby at eight months to this moving, independent child. I was trying to write an article in a mad rush, ignoring her giggling. I looked up to see what was delighting her so much and there she was, holding onto the side of my record box, smiling and looking so proud of herself. See! Working does not go with mothering. I almost missed out on her first standing! Well that’s it now, the game is up, as my dad said. I now have to have eyes in the back of my head.
“I have a sore throat and a stye – I look like one of Liam Gallagher’s ex-wives, blonde and rough” No more just leaving stuff on the coffee table, such as cups of tea or important bills, they are now quite grabbable by the baby and highly desired objects. Anything she has not seen before is a highly desired object. If I put her Early Learning Centre £20 toy on the table next to a wooden spoon she’d go all guns out to get the spoon if she hadn’t seen or chewed on it before. The crawling is funny, it’s not quite how I imagined. It’s very slow and she stops every foot to sit up and look around the room, probably looking for snipers and checking her ammo. Satisfied, she continues until her object of desire is within reach and no futon sofa bed or amount of cushions will get in her way – she will have that wooden spoon! Wish she’d do something useful like put the kettle on and make me a Lemsip…

THIS WEEK AND THE MONTH AHEAD Hospital Records hits Audio: the NHS mixed wards crisis was worse than originally thought
★ Latest 7 takes in the view at The Park View A stone’s throw from Preston Park, the somewhat misnomered Park View – the view now obscured by a pretty church and Victorian housing – is a great watering hole to refresh after the vigours of physical exercise in the park… or to rehydrate after a sunbathing session. With a huge timber-raised garden lush with plants and trees, you would be forgiven for thinking that its name refers to your surroundings rather than Preston Park itself. Inside, the rich chocolate brown décor with exposed brickwork lends an opulent, yet modern extension to the gardens. The already excellent and extensive contemporary European menu has been improved with the arrival of new head and second chefs, and with both expected and unusual lagers and beers, this is more than your standard boozer. Intelligent music is played at a sensible volume while you sup, and the art, by local artists, pays homage to Battle of the Planets and Transformers and lends an air of reminiscence to proceedings. There is regular live music, salsa classes on Wednesday evenings, Tuesday is quiz night and Thursday’s the night of the sock monkeys. Keep an eye out too as it regularly holds barbecues and events such as beer and cider festivals during the summer months. The Park View – a stylish pub for a sensible crowd.

The Do @ Core Club Annoyed that even the crustiest ex-funky house DJs are now slipping The Gossip into their sets and pretending to go all rock ‘n’ roll?

Triumphantly returning to the fray for summer, The Do are ready to rock Brighton to its very foundations with a bleeding edge mix of proper indie and basement noise you can actually dance to.

Top Tamla Escape for an evening with some sweet soul music in Worthing
Union Dance has a mission to explore and express an identity through dance which reflects the growing cultural fusion of contemporary society. Heaven on Earth is a programme of work that embraces the notion of collaboration on a creative level with the intention of conveying peace with integrity. The creative theme driving this project focuses on finding our place in the world; a space to believe in, bringing comfort and strength. Heaven on Earth expresses a state of being connected to time and the world, of belonging to the here and now. Through exploring shared experience, emotion and human spirit, this production proposes that
all of us can enjoy heaven on earth. No answers will be given but an evocation of emotions that touch the senses, and an experience shared with the audience based on the philosophy of pleasure. The project consists of two choreographies, one created by French choreographer Tayeb Benamara and the other by Michael Joseph of Union Dance. Visual images, Afro-European music and Hip hop influences will meet to create a breathtaking yet emotive context. Heaven on Earth, Thursday 21 June at 7.30pm The Hawth Theatre, Hawth Avenue, Crawley. Call 01293 553636 or see www.hawth.co.uk Tickets priced £12.50, Discounts £9.50, Schools £7.50
All cultured out after the Brighton Festival? Then why not celebrate the vocal talents of The Four Tops and The Temptations with this slick recreation of the Motown era that brings together all your favourite hits in a high voltage and high energy production. With tributes to many other legendary artists, Ben E King, Smokey Robinson and Marvin Gaye to name but a few, this show is crammed full of all-time classics, fancy footwork and outstanding choreography. Backed by The Peter Brent Orchestra, an eight-piece band including a fourpiece horn section, this superb show will get you up and in the aisles while the night is still young. Some of America’s greatest vocalists of the 1960s signed to Tamla Records in that decade, and epitomised the Motown sound. Started in Detroit, the label enabled the music of many underprivileged black Americans to enter the predominantly white charts, and artists such as The Temptations and The Four Tops took it to new heights. Tamla Records was started with just $800 and in the mid-1960s record sales rocketed and Motown was in its element. Come and listen to the music we all know and love, in a show guaranteed to have up you in the aisles, clapping, singing and most definitely dancing. Now in its fifth successive year, this promises to be an outstanding action-packed evening, a night that will be long remembered. Get ready ‘cause here they come… Worthing Pavilion Theatre, Friday 15 June, 7.45pm Call 01903 206206 or see www.worthingtheatres.co.uk. Tickets: £16/£14.50

Union matters Union Dance takes its vision of Heaven on Earth to the Hawth Theatre
Peter Bowles and Maggie Steed at Chichester Ranjit Bolt’s brand new adaptation of Jean Anouilh’s comic masterpiece, Waltz Of The Toreadors, opens at Chichester’s Minerva Theatre on 16 June. Peter Bowles plays General Saint Pé, the once-debonair lieutenant now desperately clinging to his youth. Twenty years ago the orchestra played the romantic ‘Waltz of the Toreadors’ and the General first set eyes on the beautiful Ghislaine. Years have passed and now, portly and past it, with a hypochondriac wife (Maggie Steed) and two rather unattractive daughters, the General’s former paramour, Ghislaine, surprisingly reappears wanting to revive their past relationship. But the General now finds himself competing for Ghislaine’s affections with his young amanuensis, Gaston. Peter Bowles heads up a cast of eleven,

THIS WEEK’S PREVIEWS
Zara Friend discovers a hilarious new competition at Komedia, with a holiday prize for all the family Komedia, the popular entertainment venue in Brighton (and home to the Krater comedy club) are running a fantastic competition for kids, with a superb prize. Award-winning Neilson Holidays, renowned for their entertaining and active getaways, have joined forces with Komedia to offer a holiday for the entire family! So, how can you win this great prize? Easy. Your kids have to tell the Komedia crew a joke. Simple as that! Send your child’s funny line to them and you can be in with a chance of winning. If your child is stuck for ideas, tell them to think of things they’ve seen or heard. It’s great if the joke’s about them. Keep in mind that some words, animals or situations are funnier than others. Tell them to try things out on family members and see what tickles their funny bones. They may annoy you in the process, but if you win the top prize getaway, they’ll soon be forgiven! The competition is open to anyone under the age of 11. Komedia only want the children’s input, so grown-ups should resist sticking their oars in! Neilson holidays are Brighton-based and offer fun-packed adventures to suit all ages. Older kids and adults enjoy sailing and mountain biking and there are kids’ clubs and crèches for youngsters. All their holiday activities are supervised, meaning mums and dads are free to relax if they choose. Send your imaginative joke to email@example.com or on the back of a postcard to ‘Joke Competition’, Komedia, 44 Gardner Street, Brighton, BN1 1UN. Closing date for entries is 31 July 2007.

Night vision Shot in complete darkness, except for the light of a mobile phone, the portrait subjects of Kevin Mason (aka Dark Daze) are denied their normal perceptions of the realities around them as they are exposed over 15-30 seconds for each image. An uneasy dialogue between subject and photographer develops throughout the shoot with the phone just a small patch of light amidst the pitch black. Mason explains thus: “Essentially, the people I shoot in this way are initially disorientated by the scenario, then withdraw into themselves at the oddity of the situation. Finally, I aim to capture them still somewhat uncomfortable, as they inevitably will be, but relaxed enough that an inner personality is captured. Fundamentally they are in a different state of self awareness. One that I hope the final images convey.” The Saatchi Gallery thinks so, and one of Mason’s pictures has been sent up to London to be exhibited.

07712 588136 or firstname.lastname@example.org Richard III It’s a tale of machination and political manoeuvring, of the wishes of the many trampled over by the selfish, naked ambition of a psychopath and resulting in the spilt blood of the guilty and innocent alike. The NVT’s production of Richard III strikes a powerful chord in today’s political climate. Updated from its medieval setting to the era of ‘The War On Terror’, the parallels are striking. In changing the ‘lesser-bred’ status of King Edward’s wife Elizabeth in Shakespeare’s original for a Muslim family, Martin Nichols’ production confronts us with Islamophobia. Powerful performances, a showstealing turn from Rob Maloney as Richard (frighteningly like George W Bush) and perfectly paced direction – with some great devices – from Nichols made this a thoroughly enjoyable, thought-provoking experience. New Venture Theatre, 12 May ✌✌✌✌
than drifting away from their core sound. Accompanied alternately by a Parisian cellist in some funky boots and local sax man Jeff, the band followed the sound they wanted, rather than sticking to something with the noisemakers they had, resulting in a truly unique yet cohesive approach that had the seated audience on their feet more than once. Yes, they’re back here because Brighton adores a band that not only has excellent music but can also perform. As ever, the loveGods rocked the house. Komedia, 10 May ✌✌✌✌✌ Victoria Nangle

Vic Reeves He was an avid birdwatcher who collected birds’ eggs carefully. He always felt like an alien child. He grew up to become a factory worker and took tea with a serial killer. Later, he developed a fascination with licking people’s hair, especially those with barnets like ice cream. Who he? Why, the inimitable Vic Reeves, no less. Reading from his cleverly titled and recently published book Me: Moir (his real name is Jim Moir), this was a cosy evening spent discussing the finer points of life, like where to purchase doilies, why club singers end every word with an ‘o’ and how “mundane things are always the most exciting”. Fabbo! Theatre Royal Brighton, 16 May ✌✌✌✌✌ Colette Meacher
Topping & Butch A variety show of the campest order pitched its tents inside the purple cow. From the first moment the two very well-spoken gentlemen, kitted out in a mere sprinkling of rubber and leather and not much else, stepped on to the stage it was sure to be a night of good-humoured crudity and well-mannered joviality. Involving a plethora of special guests, including Brighton’s own Zoe Lyons taking her Cherie Blair impersonations to Westminster in a short film accompanied by one of T&B’s cutting sparky songs, as well as Shazia Mirza fresh from her Hairy Woman crusade on BBC3, it was as if a Saturday night oldschool variety show had crashlanded in Revenge and the two had absorbed each others’ DNA. Highly entertaining stuff. Udderbelly, 18 May ✌✌✌✌ Victoria Nangle

Greet expectations Top notch cards business is regional finalist in major business awards “A shining example of how to successfully grow from a very small beginning.” That’s what the judges said after meeting Jeremy Corner and hearing him talk about his business Blue Eyed Sun Ltd, which is a regional finalist in the manufacturing category of the the British Small Business Champions awards 2007. Started by artist Jo Kirby and her partner Jeremy Corner in a Brighton bedsit in 2000, Blue Eyed Sun designs and makes handmade greeting cards. Now it employs ten staff with its own workshops and sells thousands of cards to shops around the world including John Lewis, Fortnum And Mason, House Of Fraser and Fenwick. Blue Eyed Sun greetings cards are upmarket and include glass enamel cards containing removable fridge magnets that are hand-fired in Blue Eyed's own kilns and Suncatchers, which won a Gift Of The Year award and have a detachable hand-painted decoration to hang in a window, make into a hanging mobile or put on Christmas trees. The UK card industry is worth over £1.2bn annually (more than tea and coffee combined) and is the most successful in the world. The British buy more cards per person (55 each year) than any other country. Because the UK leads the way, design standards are very high and competition is fierce. Jeremy Corner says: “Blue Eyed’s focus is on designing and making the most gorgeous cards, keeping our products fresh and turning orders around very quickly.” In support of his company’s industry, Jeremy Corner has – for the past three years – been the keynote speaker at the Ladder Club, an annual event organised by the Greeting Cards Association to help new card publishing start-ups. The British Small Business Champions awards are the only national awards exclusively for small businesses. Established in 2003 by the Federation Of Small Businesses to celebrate the achievements and raise the profile of the UK’s four million small businesses.

Super Fly, Friday 1, BBC2, 12.40am
House of Horrors
TUESDAY 29 Fight Club ★★★★✩ (1999, Sci Fi, 9pm. Dir David Fincher) An accessible black comedy that accurately pinpoints and sends up the modern male metropolitan malaise, Edward Norton is perfect as a yuppie whose life changes forever when he turns up for the illegal urban spars organised by Brad Pitt. Startling, sexy and subversive – it’s funny too. Matt Chittock
WEDNESDAY 30 Saving Private Ryan ★★★★✩ (1998, Five, 9pm. Dir Steven Speilberg) Speilberg’s canny take on the classic WWII flick has transcended its cheesy origins to become a modern classic. Moving and evocative – the sustained violence of the first 20 minutes is undercut by the occasional schmaltz present in the well-worn plot. MC
THURSDAY 31 Factotum ★★★✩✩ (2005, Sky Movies Indie, 9pm. Dir Bent Hamer) Matt Dillon is the boozy ‘man of many jobs’ referred to in the title of this bonedry indie comedy based on the work of cult scribbler Charles Bukowski. If you’re a fan of Chuck’s work and bleak worldview there’s much to appreciate , but for the casual viewer it lacks any real interest. MC
The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner ★★★✩✩
SATURDAY 2 Lords of Dogtown ★★✩✩✩ (2005, Sky Movies Indie, 7pm. Dir Catherine Hardwicke) A dramatic version of the skater story told in the superior documentary Dogtown and the Z-Boys, this average teen drama outlines the rise to cult fame of a group of raggedy skateboarders hanging out and perfecting moves in 70s California. Great action footage abounds, but the story becomes too hokey as the movie progresses. MC
Tommy ★★★✩✩ (1975, BBC2, 11.45pm. Dir Ken Russell) Never one for restrained dignity, Ken Russell went full-on bananas for his bizarre screen adaptation of The Who’s turgid rock opera about a deaf, dumb and blind kid who sure played a mean pinball. Totally ludicrous in design and scope it’s nevertheless a true British avant garde original. MC
SUNDAY 3 The Harder they Come
★★★★✩ (1973, BBC2, 12.10am. Dir Perry Henzell) A tough Jamaican coming-of-age story that became an instant underground hit courtesy of the excellent reggae soundtrack. Jimmy Cliff stars as a musician who turns outlaw when he kills a corrupt policeman. Cool and ironic, it’s also a clever look at the lure and pitfalls of fatal fame. MC
Super Fly ★★★★✩
(1972, BBC2, 12.40am. Dir Gordon Parks Jr) Ron O’Neal is the 70s superfly guy taking everyone higher with cheeky lines of cocaine snorted through his crucifix and a cool and deadly funk soundtrack. One of the best period blaxploitation flicks, it’s best viewed behind a couple of rum ‘n cokes and a fug of smoke. MC

Movies on the box this week
(1962, Sky Movies Classics, 1.10am. Dir Tony Richardson) Tom Courtnenay is narkier than ever as a borstal boy with a talent for cross country who cocks a snook at 50s Britain in a classic piece of kitchen-sink drama. Moody and magnificent, the anger still resonates, although some of the New Wave film trickery shows its age. MC
ITV, Tuesday 5 June You’ve gotta kind of love these programmes. Nothing is more satisfying than seeing people set up, and watching to see whether they rip someone off or not. This particular programme seems to have been around for ever and, in this show, the ‘set up’ house is in the West Midlands, and the two women living there, one young and one old, are posing as nurses. The first problem in the house is a spot of damp, so the older lady calls in a company, that has already had complaints, to fix the problem. Instantly, the expert sitting behind the hidden camera explains that the man fixing the problem is talking rubbish and charging far too much. My dad is a plumber, and whenever I watch these I am always very nervous that he, or one of his mates will appear on the screen. I’m sure it’s the same for anyone else with a relative or a friend in a trade, but I suppose that’s half the fun of watching: you want to see if a company you have used or a person you know will appear! After calling the company to see if they can fix the damp in the kitchen, the next fake problem is the aerial for the TVs in the house. The expert, who will watch the rogue trader, has pulled a couple of wires out of the little box in the loft, and has said that it’s one of the easiest jobs to put right. The traders don’t even look in the loft to see if there’s a problem there, they just tell her they should fit a new everything and rip the old lady off for £300. Watching this makes me so sad. It’s horrible to think that loads of old and young people are conned each year. It’s even harder to take that old people are conned. I can deal with young people being ripped off, but it’s so hard to deal with seeing old people being done over. In the second half of this show there is a big piece on these two blokes who preyed on lonely old men to con them out of everything. They have, including their homes. The two con men have been caught, but the two old men featured have been left with nothing. It’s horrific to think that people do this. How can they? I have trouble taking a fiver off my nan when she’s offering it, let alone steal everything from her. Still, I suppose the one good thing about watching programmes like this is that they make you slightly more prepared if someone comes knocking on your door, offering their services!
29 May–4 June
Maybe Baby ★✩✩✩✩ (2000, BBC1, 11.45pm. Dir Ben Elton) A pre-House Hugh Laurie is a TV exec fighting both writer’s block and infertility in a characteristically unfunny comedy from Ben Elton. The occasional digs at TV jargon come across well, but Hugh’s role isn’t interesting enough to make you care. MC
tuesday 29 E-17 Reunited Channel 4, 10pm Take That got back together so now their ‘rivals’ – the band formerly known as East 17 – are taking their second slice of the pie too. Except this must be their third or fourth slice and it’s getting skinnier by the minute. Could be more Spinal Tap than great reunite, but this is still worth a gander.
The Old Grey Whistle Test Story BBC2, 11.20pm Fond memories and nostalgia for music lovers everywhere. Jo Brand narrates the life and loves of the old BBC flagship music show that ran from 1971 until 1987, hosted mostly by whispering Bob Harris. With some star turns and inside stories, this covers a music icon.
Children’s TV On Trial BBC4, 9pm For ages the cable BBC channels seemed to be clogged up with British Sex On Trial, examining the dos and don’ts of the British bedroom. Now it’s kids TV’s turn in the dock as 50 years of Listen With Mother and Sooty gets strung up for assessment. Bound to have some good nostalgia clips but rather silly concept.
