It's going to be one of the best gigs of the (Indian) summer – and we are offering the chance to win tickets. Big Beach Boutique 4, Fatboy Slim's homecoming gig for his Brighton and Hove fans, takes place on Saturday 27 September. Find out if his live act is as good as ever in Jo Brooks' review in Celeb City (p9), where you can learn how to enter our competition. Things are happening at Komedia – the much-loved venue has a new chief executive, new ticketing system and is getting ready to open a new venue. Andrew has the lowdown on page 21. Nick Aldwinckle learned why math-rock band Battles hate being called that – so watch your tongue at their gig tonight (Tues 15 July) at the Concorde 2 (p25). We've heard about some developments that might not be going ahead, such as the King Alfred – but there are stacks of other fantastic schemes still moving on in the city. Hear the latest on the i360, London Road development and others in news (p11). What do Jordan and Boris Johnson have in common? Find out on Phil Mills' news page (p13). Victoria Nangle has been tasting a selection of Edinburgh previews for your delectation – turn to her comedy column on page 20 if you want to know who's going to be hot this year and who needs a bit more preparation. Andrew Kay has discovered a great new Spanish restaurant on the seafront (p16), where he enjoyed mouth-watering Spanish black pudding followed by Catalan cream. You can bet Sandra won't be going there; in this week's column about life as a model she describes how she's on a permanent diet (p15). On the same page, Zara Baker looks at healthy ways to improve your eating patterns and lose weight. What kind of lover are you? Astral Angi can tell you (p10) – is it true that Geminis are ambidextrous? Maybe film director Chris Waitt could do with the advice; he talks about his sexual failures in film (p23). In their Cheeky column, also on page 10, Brian Mitchell and Joseph Nixon delve into the legend of the Grawlock beast of Hove. Poor Dani's been having panic attacks again but has drawn some comfort from watching the tennis (p8) and Katie is finding it hard to beat the inexorable attraction of letting YouTube keep her up all night. Music editor Jeff Hemmings gives his views on news offerings from Primal Scream, Seth Lakeman and Dirty Pretty Things on page 27. Portslade are still hogging the top of the music chart with their take on Blur's Girls and Boys (p27) – visit our website www.latest7.co.uk to hear it or to help get your favourite local song into the top ten.

Elvis lives and is in the building for a special new show at the Theatre Royal on 7 August and we have a pair of tickets to give away to a lucky reader. Elvis is in the Building has it all – a score that includes all of Elvis’ millionselling hits, Paul Lillie “the UK’s number one Elvis impersonator” according to the Guardian newspaper, an 11-piece band, dancing girls and costumes which dazzle as brightly as one of the King’s famed Vegas stage shows. Like Elvis, the star of this new show is a singer and guitarist. And, with guitar slung over his cat-suited shoulder, goes where the audience of Elvis devotees take him. A repertoire of approaching 150 Elvis songs means the King’s famed on-stage spontaneity is recaptured in Elvis is in the Building. The spectacular stage show is a Mike Taylor production, who also produces Thank You for the Music and the Magic of Motown. To win a pair of tickets to this exciting new production, simply answer the following question: Elvis is in the Building draws from a repertoire of how many hit songs? See below for entry details.

Don’t miss out on this independent black comedy that has plenty of romance thrown into the mix! For a chance to win, just tell us: Which Friends character did Chandler marry in the hit show? a. Janice b. Monica c. Rachel See below for entry details. Entrants must be aged 15 or over.

What Katie did Katie is getting drawn into a night-time cult via an addiction to YouTube
Lady midnight I am just going to watch just one last YouTube video of Chris Fountain in Dancing on Ice, and then I’ll go to sleep. ‘Time Warp‘ it is. “It’s astounding, time is fleeting/madness takes its toll.“ Chris curves his body into a ‘Time Warp‘ boogie, his shiny polyester shirt glinting as he shimmys his hips across the frozen lake. As my watch glides towards 4am he lifts his partner off the ice, her legs split open, his head between them. I would love to meet that boy.
“Johnny Depp’s saying he met him once, as he smoked a roll-up from his kitchen window” I click down the other ‘related’ offerings until my mouse hovers over a Chris Fountain tribute video. Images of Chris, in Tshirts, in vests, in bed, in love. There’s Chris on a beach in sunglasses, in a suit and tie holding a
microphone stand, on a blue sunlounger with his top off. Again. All sexy and blonde and young and muscled. Now I’m bored. 5am has passed, it would be nice to be asleep. I remember Leonard Cohen’s ‘Lady Midnight‘ and tap it into the search box, rifling through the videos to find it. From Cohen to Dylan – flicking through his cards for ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues‘ – until I’m watching Hendrix via ‘Like a Rolling Stone‘. Ginsberg’s reading Howl on some scratchy recording, and Johnny Depp’s saying he met him once, a dream come true, as he smoked a roll-up from his kitchen window. Johnny on Ginsberg. Johnny on Kate. Kate pictured with Johnny, then Doherty, then Jamie. Johnny on Paradis. Johnny in Vanessa on Ginsberg up Kate via Jamie. Paradis is singing ‘Joe Le taxi‘ as the eighties start to take their turn. The videos follow one another in an endless stream of time wasting. There will never be sleep. The insomniac vision continues as the clock hits 6am. I reach for the keyboard again and again and I can’t turn it off. The YouTube drug. The quality gets worse as I get more desperate for a fix. Soon I’ll watch anything just to keep my eyes stimulated with the continuous flicker. I can’t resist it. Although I’m doomed to go on consuming it until the sun starts to rise; I call in sick, I lose my friends, turn up to my job looking drawn and pasty. An underground cult is slowly consuming me. Just one last video of Chris Fountain – then I promise I will sleep.

Eminemmylou Hi, I’m Eminemmylou, throwin’ lyrics at you. This week with Dolly Parton I'll Oil Wells Love You I met a man in Texas and oh, he was so fine And I said to myself, self, I’m gonna make him mine He owned a lot of oil wells and his bank roll sure was healthy And I knew if I married him I’d suddenly be wealthy Oh I’ll oil wells love you I’ll oil wells care I’ll oil wells need you I want you oil wells dear Well I never had no money, not a penny to my name And I said I’d find a rich man, and I’d love my way to fame So he took me in his arms and I cuddled up real near The money bug then bit me and I whispered in his ear
Oh, I’ll oil wells love you I’ll oil wells care I’ll oil wells need you I want you oil wells dear He looked in to my eyes and thought he saw a love light shine Nearly did he know that that light was dollar signs Now that we are married there ain’t nothin’ left to tell We’ll live happily ever after because all is well that ends well Oh, I’ll oil wells love you I’ll oil wells care I’ll oil wells need you I want you oil wells dear

Dani’s diary Dani finds that watching tennis has a surprisingly therapeutic effect on the anxious mind of a troubled girl... I haven’t been feeling great recently. I am having quite a few panic attacks, and when I am not feeling like that I am absolutely exhausted. I am so bored of spending all day pretending that I feel fine that cracks are starting to appear in my façade. But it’s okay because I bought myself a sun lounger and I don’t have much of a garden! I had thought of something to say in this space earlier today, but that idea disappeared along with a small amount of sanity. There is a slight delay between me writing this and it then appearing in the magazine. I am currently watching tennis. Murray vs Gasquet. I want Murray to win because it would be good to have a Brit win Wimbledon and also because if my kitten was a person he would look like Andy Murray. It’s a bit of a wrong reason to be watching tennis but... Well actually there’s no but – I am just weird. I have no idea how the scoring works and I generally have to wait for the other people in the room to answer my irritating questions and then look at me strangely because when (or at least when it looks like) it’s getting close, I feel the need to grab my chest! I don’t know why so don’t ask. At the time of writing this I have no idea who will win. I want Murray to win. The more I watch this the more I like it. I do not want to be looking at the computer screen. I want to shout at the TV (because that’s what sane people do!).
“I want Andy Murray to win because if my kitten was a person he would look like Murray”
For more rhymes check out myspace.com/eminemmylou I can’t bear it, I have to move away from the television. At the time you are reading this you will know how it all ends. I only know how it begins. I have never been a sports fan. But perhaps I can say now that I like at least one sport. Well if anything is going to pull me out of this worrying slump, then tennis might be a good thing. It’s better than perhaps sitting in a dark room and eating shredded wheat and potato croquettes which is what happened last time. I hate the summer because I had a nervous breakdown during this season two years ago (can you believe it has been two years?), and like any other person with an anxiety disorder I associate certain places and things with panic attacks and generally feeling so rubbish that I forget to care. So perhaps I can associate summer with Murray (the kitten lookalike) winning Wimbledon and making us all proud to be British again (not that I am not proud to be British, except when the football is on). Or perhaps not because nothing seems to be able to stop the crappy feeling that creeps and, more often then not, pounces on me and drags me to the floor. I need to sort something out because this is no way to live. But I put on my clothes, buy a new pair of shoes, slap on a smile and get on with the day. Because I really have no other option. Which in turn makes me feel crappy. Grrrrrrrr!

Party people Win tickets to Fatboy’s Big Beach Boutique 4, which promises to be the best beach party ever How many 44-year-olds do you know that can still party like they just don’t care? Not many I’m sure, but that is exactly what our very own Fatboy Slim did in London’s Hyde Park last weekend. I watched the show in good company, having spotted various celebs backstage, including Sir Bob Geldof, Johnny Ball, Steve Jones, Miquita Oliver, Charlize Theron and Miss Universe Australia Laura Dundovic. Norman was headlining the main stage at the O2 Wireless Saturday night gig, also playing was funk-master bassist Bootsy Collins, Audio Bullys, The Whip, Brighton’s Cagedbaby and Swedish raver Robyn. Fatboy certainly didn’t disappoint, walking on stage barefoot and in cropped trousers and now trademark loud print shirt, to the soundtrack of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Opening with a heavily remixed version of ‘Praise You’, the superstar DJ never stopped smiling throughout the show – I have never seen anyone looked more at home on stage. The set contained tracks including samples from Michael Jackson’s Thriller, House of Pain’s ‘Jump Around’ (my personal favourite), Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip’s ‘Thou Shalt Always Kill’, plus an amazing remixed version of the Rolling Stones track (‘I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’ and his 1998 hit ‘The Rockafeller Skank’ from the now classic album, You've Come a Long Way, Baby. If you got bored of looking at Norman’s beaming face then you could watch in awe at the amazing video screen action. A twelve foot tall video of Iggy Pop singing along to ‘He’s Frank’ – one of the new tunes by Brighton Port Authority (Norman’s new music project) was one of the highlights. I am told we can expect much more in the forthcoming Brighton show, Big Beach Boutique 4 on 27 September. Tickets are still available and you can get the latest news on the gig by logging onto www.myspace.com/fatboyslim
I managed to grab a few words with Norman, standing on the side of the stage watching Bootsy Collins. I asked him about his forthcoming hometown gig: “The thing is, it’s a labour of love and it’s so close to my heart being my home town. Yeah, it’s more work, but it feels like its our baby. And what a beautiful baby it is. “The show will obviously be; bigger, better, harder, faster, louder, more fun, more tunes. Just More! More! More! “We have a new visual show which will knock your socks off. Apart from that it is the same beach party frolics, which has worked so well the last three times. “After Hyde Park we are looking to my home town to really raise the bar on how much fun there is to be had.” Tickets for Big Beach Boutique 4 are £35 and only available to those with a BN postcode. Buyers are limited to six each.
Competition Latest 7 has three pairs of tickets to Big Beach Boutique 4 to give away, plus three limited edition Fatboy Slim shirts. Simply answer this question: What was the name of Norman Cook’s 1998 album? Entrants must be 18 or over. Normal Latest competition rules apply. Email email@example.com with your answer together with your name, address, age, and phone number or write to the address at the front of the magazine. Closing date for entries is Tuesday 29 July.

Bare cheek What was that? Brian Mitchell and Joseph Nixon’s thoroughly scurrilous Brighton column
Hove factually Five facts you never knew about fantabulous Hove 1) According to legend, the people of Hove are protected by a monster - the Grawlock – a nine-foot-tall beast with the body of a chimp, the tail of a zebra, the legs of a chicken and the head of Stanley Tucci, which turns its victims to stone by singing the theme tune to Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence. 2) Celebrated playwright and Hove resident, Sir Arnold Wesker, was voted number six in FHM‘s 2007 100 Sexiest Women poll. 3) Neville Playing Fields in Blatchington are named after Hove’s great general, Sir Neville Playing Fields, who invented playing fields and the name Neville. 4) Events planned for Hove Town Hall this summer include a Potty Time convention, a cartoon dog show (boasting such entrants as Huckleberry Hound, Fred Bassett and Boot from The Perishers), and a slave market. 5) Cowper Street in Poets Corner lies on a geological fault line and experiences an earthquake of magnitude 6.2 on the Richter scale approximately once every 11 minutes.

Astral Angi ★Finding truth in the stars★
Can’t remember the name of an obscure film, book, TV show, or whatever? Ask Mike Hunter, the man with all the answers Dear Mike, Listen mate – I’m desperate, and you’re my last hope. It’s my grandma’s 90th birthday next week and the family have organised a fantastic surprise party for her. We’ve hired a posh conference room at the Grand, invited all her surviving friends and relatives, booked a band to play her favourite Cole Porter numbers, and stuff. The icing on the cake was going to be my plan to project her favourite film onto the wall as she entered the party, but I’ve forgotten what the blooming thing’s called! As far as I remember it’s a Hollywood epic, set in the Deep South of America during the Civil War, and concerns the travails of a Southern belle. She hankers after a refined and handsome neighbour, but – after a number of romantic and financial misadventures – ends up hitched to an irrepressible, moustachioed rogue. At the end of the film she realises she’s always loved him, but – traumatised by the death of their daughter in a riding accident – he spurns her, and goes off. The film ends with her saying tomorrow’s just another day or something like that. Oh – and there’s a bit where she has a dress made out of some curtains, if that helps. My grandma’s nuts about this film – she’s always going on about it, and it would make her day to think so much thought had gone into her party, so please, please, please get this one right. Cheers in advance. Martin Herbert, Hangleton. Dear Martin, Frankly, my dear, I’m surprised you didn’t remember the name of this one! The film your grandmother is so fond of is, of course, Crash, which was directed by David Cronenberg in 1996. Glad to have been of help. Keep those letters flooding in!

ARIES (MAR 21–APR 20)
CANCER (JUNE 22–JULY 22)
LIBRA (SEP 23–OCT 22)
CAPRICORN (DEC 21–JAN 19)
Fiery Aries is a passionate beast, but not always as giving as one might hope in romantic situations. Hot, hot, hot is all very well but you may end up poking your own fire.
Cancer is the sign of the homemaker, the nest builder, the carer… Yes you got it, be careful not to go to far with the doilies and cushions and keep a spark in your heart for some loving.
Librans are the great lovers of harmony and light and like to see things in twos. One and two makes three and if that’s what floats your boat then who are we to criticise.
Busy little Capricorn is attracted to the strong-willed and domineering type. Drawn by power and social climbing you need to be careful not to get bitten on the bum by a rampant Scorpio.
TAURUS (APR 21–MAY 21)
LEO (JULY 23–AUG 22)
SCORPIO (OCT 23–NOV 21)
AQUARIUS (JAN 20–FEB 19)
Grounded and rock solid, Taurus can often be mistaken for boring, but that’s not true. Deep down the bull seeks a passionate relationship and surprisingly adores pretty things.
Leo rules the zodiac’s house of passion. Now that can be taken two ways. You either dominate the action, or you take the money and hold the coats – your choice, pussy.
Rulers of the house of sex, Scorpio will harness celestial powers and use them to great erotic effect. What a burden, eh? All eyes on Scorpio now to see if they measure up.
The water carrier is a flirtatious charmer who is at home with many but also appreciates the pleasures created by two. An erotic opportunist in other words, good luck to you.
GEMINI (MAY 22–JUNE 21)
VIRGO (AUG 23–SEP 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 22–DEC 20)
PISCES (FEB 20–MAR 20)
Geminis make fickle lovers, flitting from liaison to liaison feeling like a butterfly but leaving behind a mothlike detritus. Many Geminis are also ambidextrous. Think what you will.
Steeped in servitude Virgo needs to be careful not to be taken advantage of. Unless of course you enjoy being taken advantage of. Use your skills to give pleasure wherever you can.
Philosophical Sagis are so bound up in the whys and the wherefores that they are likely not to get round to the action. Put those thoughts to one side and get it on for once.
Passive Pisces is so laid-back that you might not even know they are awake. Come on Pisces, put down your mushy peas and pick up your codpiece from Bardsley’s.

Rachel Pegg reports on the local development projects that are on course to beat the credit crunch
Steady development You could be forgiven for thinking there is not much happening in development in Brighton and Hove and that most major projects are on freeze. You’d be wrong. Many of the city’s most ambitious schemes – including the i360 tower and regeneration of London Road – are moving ahead with speed. Work is due to start on the i360, the viewing tower dubbed the ‘Brighton Eye’, later this year. This week a public exhibition will reveal more about St James’s Investments’ ambitious plans for London Road. i360
Meanwhile, it is hoped a planning application for the redevelopment of City College Brighton and Hove will be made at the end of this month and Explore Living is hoping for a decision on its application to build nearly 1,300 apartments, a transport interchange, shops and community buildings at Brighton Marina in the autumn. Construction is expected to start on Brighton and Hove Albion’s new Falmer Stadium in December and on the £11million revamped Open Market in the spring. All of which seem to point to a city still committed to regeneration and change. Ted Kemble, council cabinet member for major projects, said: “Brighton and Hove has a very progressive and economic future. Developers have still got confidence in the town and I don’t think we will suffer as much as other parts of the country. There is obviously going to be the odd hiccup. Given the enthusiasm and support of this administration for the economic wellbeing and growth of the city, I am very confident that most if not all of our major projects will go ahead.” It is hoped that the i360 will open in time for summer, 2010. A spokeswoman for architects Marks Barfield said the project had not been affected by the credit crunch. She said: “It is still moving on so it hasn’t had an impact. We are still quite confident. We are just trying to work out contractual details.” St James’s Investments first revealed their proposals for London Road in April and asked for ideas from the public. Now architects Wilkinson Eyre and Scott Brownrigg have drawn up designs which will be unveiled this week. They include homes, commercial space, new shopping unit and a Tesco store.
Project leader James Hepburn said: “More than 700 people visited our first exhibition in April where we asked for ideas from the public on how they would like to see the area improved. Ninety per cent are in favour of regenerating the area, and the top issues seen by the public as most in need of addressing are run-down shops, derelict and vacant buildings, lack of green and amenity space, traffic congestion and lack of shopping choice. Other key issues raised included addressing traffic congestion and creating good pedestrian and cycle connections around the area.” City College is due to apply for planning permission this month to totally redesign its Pelham Street site in the south of the city and build a north site at the new community stadium at Falmer. This first phase of the redevelopment, costing £95million, is due to open in September 2011. Later this summer the college will submit a request for most of the funding to the Learning and Skills Council. The Brighton Marina Regeneration Project submitted its planning application for the western quarter last September after two years of public consultation. The council is now undertaking its own consultation and the scheme is expected to go to committee for a decision this autumn. Project leader Jim Dennis said the project remained financially stable. He said: “As a privately and family run business we remain protected against variations in the stock market, allowing us to drive the business forward in a market that is currently consumed with uncertainty.” Albion chief executive Martin Perry said last month when the project was put out to tender that he fully expected work to begin in December. The club will announce which of the three building firms has won the contract in September. At the time Mr Perry said the project should be protected from the credit crunch, saying: “Working closely with our financial advisors PriceWaterhouseCoopers, we are confident of securing the necessary funding for our new home and hope to announce a preferred funding partner before the end of this year.” In the next few weeks a building firm is expected to be appointed for the Open Market scheme. Construction will begin in the spring and is expected to last nine months. Paul Reynolds, one of the traders leading the scheme together with the city council and Hyde Housing, said: “The credit crunch hasn’t helped but it is a community project that is considered quite highly by the council. It will be a kick-start for the London Road regeneration.” St James’s Investments London Road public exhibition, 11 Vantage Point, Circus Parade, Thurs 17 July, 11am-7pm, Fri and Sat 18 and 19 July, 11am-4pm.

Brighton and Hove City Council has announced a formal consultation for turning Falmer High School into a city academy. The council will publish a statement of its intention on Monday 1 September. There will be a six-week period in which people can make representations to the council. Hundreds of people queued around the block in an attempt to pick up an iPhone 3G. The phones went on sale at O2 and Carphone Warehouse stores on Friday (11 July) at 8.02am. About 200 people queued for hours at O2 in Western Road. O2 said there was unprecedented demand for the new model and it would be getting weekly supplies.

think it’s important to show different sides to the subject that people maybe haven’t thought of before. I think I’ve pushed my experiences to one side in order to look at it objectively.“ In her photographs, Lucy aims to show objects from the point of view of the person with dementia. She said: “People with dementia often get confused and put objects in the wrong places. There’s an image of fruit in a bowl with pins in, which represents a common delusion with dementia sufferers that their food is being poisoned so they end up losing a lot of weight and can be hospitalised. There’s some that are labelled with their names if you go into a care home everything has to be labelled. I hope people will look at the images and question what they know about dementia and see it from a different perspective.“
Art after addiction The art work created by people recovering from drug and alcohol problems goes on show An art exhibition with a difference is running in Brighton this summer. ‘Temporarily Now’, being staged at St Paul’s Church in West Street, Brighton, showcases a range of artwork and photography created by people recovering from drug and alcohol problems. Art therapy is used by a number of local organisations in their work with people getting over substance misuse problems and the exhibition is an opportunity for the artists to display their work. The exhibition has been organised by Brighton and Hove City Council’s Communities Against Drugs team – part of the city’s Drug and Alcohol Action Team. It was opened last month by Councillor Dee Simson, the council’s cabinet member for community affairs and inclusion. The exhibition runs until August 30 and, being in a central location close to Brighton seafront, it is 12 latest 7

LATESTNEWS Phil Mills investigates a string of high profile local cases recently solved by Sussex police Andre Genestin
Rich harvest There was a time not so long ago when a secret drawer would slide open in a police station office to celebrate the conviction of a major criminal. It wasn’t supposed to happen, of course, but it did. Out would come a bottle of Scotch and all those detectives and uniform officers involved in the case would raise a glass and down a wee dram. The ritual was a quiet affair, deliberately so to avoid the wrath of the top brass and it was done as much in salute to the victim as it was to hail the judge and jury. Political correctness has long put paid to the practice, of course, and it is probably all to the good: if it was called upon to register recent successes then officers would be bending their arms so much they’d be rolling around totally incapable. Sussex police are currently bringing home a rich summer harvest of highprofile convictions, and while they are only supposed to say they are “satisfied” with court successes, there are probably quite a few yippees being shouted behind closed doors in coppers’ homes. Police have not known a busier time. A life sentence for body-in-the-box murderer Andre Genestin was among the string of jobs for the Major Crime Branch (MCB), which normally handles an average 20 homicides in a year. After a two-week trial, Genestin, 49, was found guilty of beating to death his Russian-born wife and hiding her body in a car roof box in the garden of their home in Whitehawk, Brighton. Days earlier, an inmate at Lewes Prison was convicted of strangling his cellmate, not the toughest of nuts to crack, one would think. Some cases
do appear open and shut and wouldn’t need a Sherlock Holmes or an army of sleuths to solve, but in this age, there are no simple cases and every ‘T’ needs crossing and ‘I’ dotting. It is painstakingly slow, often laborious and sometime fraught with legal minefields that, if strayed into, could see a guilty Det Supt person walk free. Steve Fowler Several concluded cases related to crimes committed years earlier. A Littlehampton man was killed in his flat two years ago. His neighbour received an indeterminate sentence. Two offenders, 26 and 32, were jailed for 20 years for a murder in Hurstpierpoint, while another offender was sent to prison for 12 years for robbery and aggravated burglary in the Chinese community in Horsham. Aaron Aymer, 18, from London, who stabbed a 22year-old Brighton man at Seven Dials, was found guilty of murder, and five defendants were sentenced to a total of 20 years for false imprisonment, theft and assaults involving the Polish community in Hove. The MCB currently have two retrials, including a manslaughter case involving a fatal road crash at Fontwell. Head of the MCB is Detective Superintendent Steve Fowler, who personally led a high-profile case which led to the conviction and jailing for three years of one of his own officers for theft and obtaining property by deception. He said the recent workload had come at a time when the branch was actively investigating five other cases, including murder. There was no sign of a drawer sliding open but he did concede: “It’s been a hectic period with so many trials running but they have yielded some excellent results.”

Jordan – artist? Glamour model Jordan dreams of being crowned Princess Katie Price if her artwork is anything to go by. She put paint to canvas and came up with a pink crown decorated with Swarovski crystals and carrying the message “Everyone’s a princess” when she popped into a Brighton studio with husband Peter Andre and brother Danny. Their three pieces of work, along with 200 other celebrity canvases, will be auctioned in London later this year for the Willow Foundation, founded by
Arsenal and England goalkeeper Bob Wilson and his wife Megs in memory of their daughter, who died of cancer aged 31. The charity provides quality of life and quality of time for seriously ill young adults, aged 16 to 40, throughout the UK, through the provision of special days. One onlooker at Julie-Anne Gilburt’s seafront studios said: “Katie was very enthusiastic with her art but she couldn’t keep her eyes or hands off Peter. It was really quite sweet.” Ms Gilburt said: “They made the journey to the studio specifically to
get involved and really threw themselves into the project.” Other celebrities taking part in the Stars on Canvas auction include Sir Bob Geldof, Matt Lucas, Matt Damon, Catherine Tate, Gary Rhodes, Gordon Ramsay, Boris Johnson and Jude Law. latest 7 13

Thanks from Macmillan We at Macmillan Cancer Support would like to say a big thank you to all those who took part in, and sponsored, the Windmill Walk on Sunday 11 May. It was a great success and so far has raised over £10,000 to help people in Sussex affected by cancer, and we still hope to reach our target of £15,000. In particular we would like to thank Café Nia, Graze, Donatello, Usual Suspects, Bowlplex, Montezuma’s, Millie’s Cookies, Thorntons, Marks and Spencer (by Brighton Station), Rondo the Clown, NamNam’s face painting, Brighton and Hove Bus Company, Wenban Smith, Parker Pen, Rottingdean Preservation Society, Seaford Lions Club and David Boys Photography, all of whom helped make this event such a huge success. Macmillan’s ambition is to provide everyone affected by cancer with medical, emotional, practical and financial support. One in three people are affected by cancer and more than 6,200 people are diagnosed with cancer in Sussex each year, so the need for our support services just keeps growing. Macmillan does not receive regular government funding so we rely on supporters and sponsors to allow us to continue providing our vital services. We do need help to raise more funds. It can be great fun organising your own fundraising event such as a coffee morning, pub quiz, barbecue or summer fete in aid of Macmillan. Or turning an interest or hobby into a fundraiser, by setting yourself a personal challenge such as a sponsored cycle or putting on a gig with friends. It’s a really enjoyable and easy way to raise money. For further advice and to get you started call the Macmillan Cancer Support in Sussex fundraising office on 01273 746601. If you would prefer to join one of our organised events why not take part in the Peacehaven Abseil on 9 August. To find out more details and to register visit www.macmillan.org.uk/eastsussex Once again, we want to thank all our supporters and sponsors without whom we couldn’t continue to help make a difference to the lives of people living with cancer in Sussex.

Food for thought Dear Andrew, I recently read a letter by a guy called John who wanted more reviews of restaurants in Hove and Brighton. What utter rubbish this man talks: if he reads your column regularly he will clearly see that you review Brighton and Hove on a regular basis along with other restaurants across the coast and London. As a resident living in Brighton who commutes on a daily basis to London I find your reviews refreshing and thoroughly interesting. On a regular basis I find myself following in your reviewing footsteps, whether it’s the Rain Forest Café, One Aldwych, both in London, or L’Eglise in Hove, The Foragers in Brighton or the River Spice in Hove. Long may you continue to review food as your articles are just what I and many others look forward to on a weekly basis. I cannot wait for your review of Santiago as I had an excellent night there recently with friends. The food and service were just great and the views from the window seat breathtaking. I am sure you will have a good time. Kevin Evans

Think before you eat
Zara Baker says forget the crash diet for summer and think about nutrition and energy intake first
Sandra Omo points out that there’s more to dieting than simply shedding pounds
As we focus on reaching an ideal weight for baring skin in the summer, nutrition can take a backseat. Weight loss becomes the goal and the side effects of eating an unbalanced diet begin to show. Energy levels are affected, along with our mood. Good nutrition needs to be in our mind, but how do we ensure we are getting enough nutrition? And just how much is enough? I set out to find some answers. The nutrition in our diet and energy needed differs between each individual. The amount is based on our BMI (Body Mass Index) which calculates if we are a healthy weight for our height. Visit nhsdirect.nhs.uk to calculate your BMI. As I tentatively entered my weight and height on to the site, I was pleased to see the results load up and say my BMI is healthy, despite any body issues one may have. A diet high in fat and low in protein can contribute to health factors later on in life including coronary heart disease, type two diabetes and some cancers. A healthy nutritional plan of a balanced diet, which includes some fat (unsaturated), is key. Five-a-day of fruit and vegetables has become a popular slogan in society, used in advertising and by health care professionals. If we aim to get our ‘five-a-day,’ though, it is probably more difficult than you think. A medium sized piece of fruit, such as an apple, is one portion. A fruit smoothie also counts as one, as does a slice of large fruit such as pineapple or melon. For variety, try a handful of grapes, cherries or dried fruit (tinned fruit counts too) and a side salad. The British Nutrition Foundation (www.nutrition.org.uk) carried out a national data survey and found from those asked that children eat less then half the recommended five a day. In an average week, one in five children aged four to 18 ate no fruit at all. Try the nutrition quiz at bupa.co.uk and see how much you know – It may be an eye opener. If you want nutrition advice, a nutritionist can help you manage your weight and take a positive and happier outlook.

I, like every other model, have become a victim of the word ‘diet’. It has become a word we dare not use outside our clique, otherwise the stare we get is the type that can cause the ground to open and swallow us. Why? Because this word has become such a misunderstood cliché, so that when a model, especially a slim person, says he/she is on a diet, the first thought that runs through people’s minds is usually cynical. Then they begin to ask questions like: “What’s wrong with you?”, “Are you serious or joking?”, “What on earth do you need to diet for?”, “Can’t you see you are skinny already?”, etc. Yeah all these may be true but has it ever occurred to anyone that they are exactly the reasons why that person should be on a diet? Firstly, I would like to point out that a diet is a good thing and something that everyone needs, including models. The truth is that we are all on a diet whether we like it or not. If you disagree, it is because you do not know what ‘diet’ means. In fact, the majority of us do not know. We think that a diet is a range of food, which a person limits his/herself to in order to lose weight. You are wrong because although the definition of the word ‘diet’ includes the above, it is not limited to it. This is like saying that the United Kingdom is England – see how wrong you are? To be complete, the word diet means a range of food habitually eaten by a person, or that which a person is limited to, in order to affect one’s weight and/or health. This effect can be a positive or negative one. So you see, as long as you eat food, you are on a diet. The question now is, are you on a good or bad diet?
“As long as you eat food, you are on a diet. The question is, are you on a good or bad diet?” I say a good diet is the balance between not eating enough and eating too much, and we – models – need this because we are usually at risk of not eating enough. The competition in the modelling industry makes it very easy for us to concentrate on our physical appearance so much that we sometimes, if not all the time, forget about being healthy. We must always remember that modelling is not all about the way one looks today; rather it takes maintaining that look or quality for one to be a success, and eating a good diet is the best way to keep a healthy and glowing physical appearance. Thus, the popular saying that: “You are what you eat” can never be over emphasised. Funnily enough, I have been told so many times that I am lucky that I do not need to diet in gatherings where dieting is talked about. Each time I hear this, I wonder what the criteria for these people’s assumption is. If it is based on the fact that I am a model and a size eight, then I dare say that this is the reason I need to live on a diet all my life, because the industry that I work in demands that I maintain this standard, if not improve it. Therefore, it is funny when people assume that models do not need to go on a diet when we are actually the ones who should not go through a day without being conscious of a good diet. So when we say we are on a diet, it is, more often than not, to maintain or improve, not necessarily to lose weight. latest 7 15
ANDREW KAY’S FOOD&DRINK
Fish on the beach Andrew Kay’s tongue goes dancing at Santiago on Brighton seafront Of all the cuisines in the world my least favourite has always been Mexican. Oh I can cook a mean Texan chilli for sure but most of what is presented on a plate under the name of Mexico looks like it has been reheated if not regurgitated several times. I did however have a real soft spot for El Taco Way on the lower promenade on Brighton’s seafront. Here, in the summer months only, I would happily sit down to a Dos Equis and a plate of tortilla chips with splodges of ‘stuff’. It wasn’t great food but it had the best atmosphere. Now El Taco Way has been replaced by Santiago, and the Mexicana replaced by a far more sophisticated menu of modern cooking. There is also indoor seating which I am sure I never saw in the former incarnation, so the plan is to stay open all year. I arrived with Mr E, unsure of what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised to find an old foodie friend waiting table and a chef who I have praised before rattling the pots and pans. We went inside – there was a heck of a wind blowing – and took a seat upstairs. What a view; waves crashing on pebble, the stripped carcass of the once proud West Pier stooped and forlorn. I reckon the only worthwhile sea views in Brighton are from the beach. Regulars might by now be worrying that the detailed environmental report is here to diffuse a disappointing meal. None of it. The meal was first class. I know that I can waffle about wallpaper when the nosh is below par, but not this time, it’s just that the location is worth a mention.
“I was lured by the promise of morcilla – Spanish black pudding served with scallops and minted pea puree”
thus forming a heat impervious barrier. I have suffered too often from raw lamb fat on crusted racks. Get it right though and it‘s heaven, which is exactly what this was. The crumb mix was as light as fairy dust, the seasoning quite brilliant, with a perfect balance of sweet and salt that had my tongue dancing. It was crisp too and in a fine layer that had not denied the fish inside some proper heat. I hope the chef will forgive me for copying the dish at home, or at least trying to. To drink I chose a bottle of rioja that was as smooth as a red coat’s patter and far more entertaining. Spanish tempranillo works excellently well with white fish and with pork – it works brilliantly with chorizo and morcilla too. Too full for dessert really, but ever watchful of the needs of my readers we took a look at the menu and piled in. Mr E having failed to finish his main could not resist a dish of eggy bread made with brioche and served with red fruits and ice cream. I chose Catalan cream which is closer to our own creme bruleè than to Spain’s other notorious pudding flan. Flan in Spain (unlike the sponge jobs our mothers bought and filled with tinned mandarins under a jelly glaze with whipped cream. What do you mean your mother didn’t make fruit flans?) is a custard affair often thickened with cornflour as well as eggs and as a consequence it is truly dismal. Here the Catalan cream was a perfect eggy custard flavoured with orange flower water with a crisp sugar topping. If I have one criticism of the entire meal it would be the sugar topping which was a tad gritty and not caramelised enough for my taste. A tiny complaint and one that I hope does not offend. Coffee was good, piping hot espresso always makes me smile and yes I do dip sugar cubes in it and crunch them as they melt. Maybe the memory of El Taco Way is seen through the rose-tinted spectacles of lost romance. Santiago is much, much better and certainly makes better use of the location and for longer each year.

memories of Indian Cuisine
A New Experience
So on to the food. Mr E started with a massive plate of fried chorizo with white beans, a sturdy dish indeed and one that he made rapid inroads into. I was lured by the promise of morcilla – Spanish black pudding served with scallops and minted pea puree. I prayed it was Spanish because they have a soft, creamy texture, far less firm than a Bury berry. I am pleased to report that it was really smashing. Mr E moved on to slow-cooked belly of pork with a bean stew. Not exactly well-planned on his part – two portions of beans – but another impressive and robust dish, the size of which actually defeated him. I chose haddock in a pink peppercorn crust with a warm potato salad. I love haddock, more character than cod by a long chalk and as yet not endangered I hope. I also love pink pepper berries, as I think they are called. This was a great dish and reminded my why I had enjoyed this chef’s work in the past. The fish to start with was a thick slice of fillet, cooked to perfection; flaky but still moist. The potato salad was good too and pleasantly restrained in its seasoning. I mention this because it provided a perfect background against which to enjoy the crust. Now crusts on food can turn me on or make me sick. Nothing is worse than a slab of compacted breadcrumb baked on to the surface of food and 16 latest 7

Kaki King After the Godspeed-meets-Tetley chic of openers My Little Problem, Kaki King hopped onto the Duke’s stage almost unnoticed to begin what was to be a captivating display of musical mastery. Utilising acoustic, electric and lap steel guitar, she hypnotised all present with a selection of beautifully undulating soundscapes, accompanying them with her own sweet and delicate vocals. In between bursts of deadpan banter and despite having to cut her set short, tracks from her back catalogue and latest release Dreaming of Revenge clearly demonstrated just why she is held in such high regard. Duke of Yorks Picturehouse, 3 July ✌✌✌✌✌ Jody White
The Catfish Kings Rock ‘n’ roll zeitgeist tunes from the 50s gathered progressive popularity among a strong crowd at the Joogleberry. Led by suave vocalist Harry Lang, the five-piece band performed a surprisingly slow-tempo version of Chuck Berry’s ‘You Never Can Tell’ (as featured in Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction) alongside others. Saxophonist Geoff Hearn arrived on stage fashionably late after the second song. Though he held the night together in admirably well seasoned style, in lieu of a missing keyboard player. Towards the end, this retro boy band (all aged over 30) had women on stage shouting for more. You gotta hand it to ‘em. Joogleberry Playhouse, 4 July ✌✌✌ Mark David
Comedy @ The Brighton Coalition As if someone had transplanted a rowdy Saturday night comedy club to a Thursday night on the seafront, MC Rufus Hound knocked the crowd in line as he prepared them for the night’s comics. The raucousness was in part due to half of the audience being out for one company’s works do, but with a ‘rock karaoke’ after it was the classic company night out, so who could blame them. First comic Amadeus was quiet and seemed
HOT REVIEW OF THE WEEK Pentangle For a band whose original line-up split in 1973, Pentangle show remarkable resilience. I mean drummer Terry Cox has been running a restaurant in the Balearics for the last 20 years – and yet here they are still one of English folk’s finest proponents. At the start of tonight’s Dome show, Jacqui McShee’s fluted vocals seemed muddy as if the Royal Festival Hall and Cardiff gigs have taken their toll. Fortunately not and the vocal challenge of 27-verse standards are taken in her increasingly, assured stride. With Bert Jansch and John Renbourn, as the ablest acoustic accompaniment you’re ever likely to see and Danny Thompson’s virtuoso double bass, no wonder the hubbub surrounding this tour has brought everyone from Madonna’s producer to Devendra Banhart out of the woodwork. Concert Hall, The Dome, 2 July
slightly intimidated by the crowd, although his material worked. Susan Murray knocked their socks off with her bawdy set about sex and getting older, and headliner Addy Van Der Borgh was loved, although slightly lost whenever this boisterous crowd tried to join in with heckles. Good, but with a more mixed audience is bound to be better. The Brighton Coalition, 3 July ✌✌✌ Victoria Nangle
The Music Man Meredith Wilson’s greatest achievement proves to be timeless in this latest hit for CFT. Simplicity of setting allowed the cast, choreographer, costumes and score to shine. Trivial in content maybe, the music is thrillingly complex with tight harmonies, complex rhythms and stark orchestrations thrown into contrast with the rich oompapa of the Souza inspired big numbers. Sentimental yes, but witty and entertaining. Brian Conley is the perfect cheeky chancer and more than holds his own vocally, his dancing is less convincing. Jenny Galloway steals all the best comedy moment as mayoress and Scarlett Strallen has a voice of gold. I came away singing and with a smile on my face. Chichester Festival Theatre 3 July ✌✌✌✌ Jody White
Pablo Francisco He has his fans. He has a dedication to the performance and a rapid-fire show that demands your full concentration. He even tried to localise a bit of his act with some references to Spearmint Rhino early on. But Pablo Francisco was not in Brighton for his gig, he was back in LA and he brought us all with him with his American Idol references and repeated callbacks to a life insurance ad from US TV. This, and his distinctly dodgy topics, that were in part a unique perspective and another part offensively prejudiced explains why his following is described as ‘cult’. Professional in his performance and a talented mimic, it was such a shame that his material was lazy when there were glimpses of a clever, unique mind. Just because you’re saying something no one else would say, doesn’t make it worth saying. Komedia, 1 July ✌ Victoria Nangle

A laughing matter
For Victoria Nangle, Edinburgh preview shows give a special insight into the workings of the comedian’s craft There are a couple more weeks of Edinburgh previews doing the rounds down here, but to me what’s most interesting about them is that most are in a state of ‘work in progress’. Quite how much is ‘work’ and how much is ‘in progress’ will differ from performance to performance but to see the comic mind exposed – trying out a few risqué topics here, a few wild gestures and brand new interactions there – is worth all the rough edges. Catching Ed Aczel’s earlier preview show (see him this Friday, 8pm, Upstairs at Three and Ten, £7/5 for a more recent incarnation) was great as he tried out three different introductions for himself from off-stage to see which one got the biggest laughs. Stephen Grant first released a version of his Edinburgh show Second (latest incarnation this Wednesday at Komedia, 9pm, £5), back in May for the Brighton Fringe Festival, with a tailored interactive introduction that’s really quite unique. I won’t give the game away, but one of the fun things about Stephen is his wealth of experience as a compere, and as such his ability to simply interact on an ad hoc basis with any front row and still be funny – with a gag just for them.
“This is when you really start to get to know the inside of a comedian’s brain – a dangerous place indeed” The ‘in progress’ part is a very exciting time. It’s when you really start to get to know the inside of a comedian’s brain – a dangerous place indeed – and hear the gags that got away, whether that’s due to quality or personal sensitivity only the comedian can say. With new local comics coming up the ranks with their own shows and warped minds (among these are The Umbrella Show, this Thursday and Friday at Upstairs at Three and Ten, and Holland, Hume And Someone Else, Sunday 27 July Upstairs at Three and Ten), it’s my plan to catch them now and then see them again once they’ve done the whole Edinburgh experience. Check the difference. See how they’ve sharpened up and flown right from quivering ingenue to jaded circuit player. Or not as the case may be. All I’m saying is that a festival preview is so much more than a regular show. It’s a mark on the landscape, a turning on a comedic journey and a before-and-after snapshot that’d make Gok Wan gasp in amazement. And a chance to catch some real funnies just as they’re realised and before the glaze of practice wipes the glisten of spontaneity off them. Oh, and they’re dead cheap. Let’s not forget the most important qualifier in booking any ticket in this post-holiday-booking summer.

John Davies looks at non-fiction. New books featuring cycling mums, the French and alcohol dependency Based in Chichester, Summersdale Publishing is one of the UK’s top independent non-fiction publishers. It’s also an integrated media group offering books, DVDs, audio books and podcasts. They publish over 700 books including titles such as Voices from the Front Line, Love Puppies and a Dictionary and Phrase Book of French Medical Terms. It’s a vibrant and eclectic list, promoted on a website that’s easy to use, informative and makes the most of online video. Recently released is a humorous look at the French from Mimi Malone, Ooh la la! How to be Infuriatingly French. It appears to be the kind of book you buy for your Francophile aunt for her 80th, but on closer look this is one of those little gems that becomes a cult classic in the loo. For a start it’s beautifully produced and the illustrations by Kath Walker are pungent and apt. The book is divided into eight short sections with topics like Food and Drink, Out and About, Commerce, Rules and Bureaucracy and Attracting the Opposite Sex. The approach is light-hearted but you can still glean plenty of cultural detail. If you’ve already said hello to someone “you can greet them with a ‘Re-bonjour’, or simply growl ‘Re’ at them.” When posing for a photograph the French don’t say ‘cheese’ but “prefer instead to say ‘ouistiti’. It means ‘marmoset’.” The cover illustration of Ooh la la! features a lady on a bike and Cycling in Sussex features two local cycling mums from Hassocks, Deidre Huston and Marina Bullivant, who must be very chuffed with their first publication, the third title in Vertebrate Publishing’s very worthwhile Off-Road Trails and Quiet Lanes series of family and leisure cycling guidebooks. Deidre’s a teacher and photographer and both talents come through in this well laid-out, wellillustrated, easy-to-follow guide. All the routes are very understandable. It’s the ideal book for cycling families wanting to explore West and East Sussex over the summer holidays. I’m looking forward to trying some of the High Weald routes in September but there are coastal paths, disused railways and cross country routes with information about where to stay, local amenities (like the pubs) and the really important information about how hilly the route is! My final choice this week reminds us of the tremendous damage alcohol can cause. Alcoholism: The Family Guide has a powerful cover with the title in very big letters, which may put some people off. But this is a book everyone who enjoys a glass or two should read. Interestingly, it’s published by an imprint of poetry publisher Forward Press, who are presumably doing penance for all those drunken bards. It’s written by Samantha Harrington-Lowe, a journalist specialised in lifestyle issues. Samantha’s mother, an alcoholic, died when she was 18, so she has personal experience of the issues she writes about. Samantha quotes the BMJ in her introduction: “Between 1991 and 2005, deaths attributable to alcohol almost doubled.” “There are hundreds of thousands of people in the UK today who have a serious drink problem.” It’s often difficult to face up to, but she urges all of us to look at our drinking habits and face facts. “The biggest hurdle when tackling an alcohol issue is coming to terms with the fact that you have a problem.” This is an important and timely book. The drinks companies always rabbit on about responsible drinking as if the constant increase in the amount of alcohol in a bottle has nothing to do with it. If they really wanted to encourage responsible drinking they would give this book away free at supermarkets, pubs and off-licences. And perhaps instead of persecuting our young people and herding them from park to park across Brighton, the boys in blue could offer some friendly advice and pass on a copy to kids who need help.

Just the ticket New venue, new CEO and a new ticketing system for Brighton-based Komedia Expansion is top of the list for Komedia this summer as the awardwinning live entertainment company in Brighton announces a new venue, a new CEO and a new ticket system. At the end of June, Komedia signed and exchanged lease papers with Bath and northeast Somerset Council, granting the company permission to begin building works and refurbishment in the former Beau Nash cinema. Komedia directors, along with architects Stubbs Rich and builders Sturland, expect to open the new venue in November 2008. Komedia Bath was set to open in late 2007, but delays in planning meant the project was put back. Colin Granger, co-founder of Komedia, is delighted: “We’re over the moon Komedia Bath is now but a few months away from completion. We’ve got a superb design from our Bath architects, Stubbs Rich, to convert the former ABC cinema into a live arts venue and have already started work with Sturland Builders on transforming this wonderful building into a fully working space once again.” Following this news Komedia have also announced they have appointed a new CEO to oversee the operation of their venues. Ranjit Singh took over as CEO at the beginning of July. The role was initially held by Colin Granger, and has most recently been in the stewardship of Chairman Richard Smith. Ranjit has previously worked for The Body Shop, with responsibility for
opening outlets throughout the United States and a spell at the innovative Yo! Sushi restaurant. Ranjit previously worked with Komedia director Richard Daws at Brighton-based production company Victoria Real. During their tenure Victoria Real became one of the fastest growing private companies, ranked 4th in The Sunday Times Fasttrack. Post Victoria Real, Ranjit returned to the States to work for Virgin Drinks, heading up a joint venture with The Firm, Hollywood's largest music and film talent management company. In order to streamline the two venue’s websites and ticket booking processes, Komedia have launched a brand new ticketing system in partnership with Dublin-based TicketSolve. Over recent months, events, venues and festivals have been the subject of increasingly negative ticket talk, with major ticketing systems crashing due to high demand or technical faults. The perceived dominance of a select few ticketing agencies fuelled discontent over a number of matters, affecting both consumer and venue alike. TicketSolve aim to eradicate this discontent by providing a system that allows venues to ticket their own events through an online complete ticketing solution. Tim Hawkins, Komedia General Manager states, “It’s exactly what we, as a growing group of live entertainment venues, need from a ticketing system. It has the potential to revolutionise the market.”
Abc Edward Albee’s classic Three Tall Women at the New Venture Edward Albee’s modern classic Three Tall Women will end the NVT’s diamond season in style this July. The 1994 Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a profound meditation on personal identity and memory, exploring life and experience through the eyes of the three unnamed title characters. An elderly woman, known simply as A, reflects on her life and relationships, accompanied by her carer, B, and is visited by her solicitor, C. Timeless, eloquent and perceptive, Albee’s masterful exploration of the arc of a life is shot through with great humour, subtlety and sadness. 19–26 July, preview performance at 7.45pm on Friday 18 July. Performances start at 7.45pm, except Sunday and Monday evening. Sunday matinee performance at 2.30pm. Tickets cost £7 (£8.50 Friday and closing Saturday night) and can be reserved online at: www.newventure.org.uk or by calling 01273 746118. latest 7 21

Wall-E (U) Director: Andrew Stanton Pixar blitz the opposition in this animated masterpiece. The story follows itty-bitty robot Wall-E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) who discovers a new purpose in life when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. With a host of superbly imagined characters and a lead character who
utters no more than three words throughout, this is classic Pixar tomfoolery. Chuck in a whole bucket of cuddles, a refreshing dose of surreal humour, a touching environmental message and a race across space and you have pure, unadulterated cinematic pleasure.

Journey to the Centre of the Earth 3D (PG) Dir: Eric Brevig This new adaptation of Jules Verne’s classic tale of adventure is a somewhat hammy affair. Brendan Fraser, occasionally good when seen opposite a Mummy but usually as interesting as a pebble, takes the lead alongside a collection of misfits. Together they embark on a quest to find out what happened to Fraser’s missing brother, only to discover a fantastic but – oh, what a surprise – dangerous world in the centre of the Earth. The effects may be 3D but the characters and plot remain entirely two dimensional. Showing at Odeon and Cineworld

Dir: James Marsh This documentary takes a look at what is considered by some to be the artistic crime of the century, tightrope walker Philippe Petit’s daring, but illegal, high-wire routine performed between New York’s World Trade Centre’s twin towers in 1974. Marsh is better known for keenly observed efforts such as The King but this sees him finding a subject who is as much muse as he is acrobat. With an array of original footage this is right up there with Touching the Void for adrenaline-drenched nostalgia. Showing at Duke of York’s Craig Driver
Let’s talk about sex Chris Waitt talks to Latest 7 on his confessional film A Complete History of My Sexual Failures How did you think this would work out as film project? I expected it to be really, pretty simple, that's probably because I’m stupidly naïve in these things, just as I am in relationships as well. Did the reality of making the film match your expectations? I thought it would be simple. Speaking to ex-girlfriends, finding out what was wrong. I thought they'd be pleased. It was way, way more difficult. Is it one big ego trip? I thought, ‘What the hell am I making this for?’ I either thought it was deeply self-indulgent or it must be some absurd ego trip, or it was just a bad idea. Although I think there may be elements of that in the film, in
the end it turned out to go way beyond what I expected. It did end up being very important in my personal life, it was cathartic. Was it difficult persuading people to invest in this as an idea let alone a film? Both me and the people putting the money into it thought it was an absolute disaster. The funding was withdrawn twice. And you know, what you see in the film is a call from the head of the film company, which was an actual call, you actually hear him saying he was going to shut the film down. How did your family respond? They laughed at some sections, but it’s not a normal family movie. The trouble was, a lot of the material in it was a lot of stuff they didn’t know. It turned out to be kind of like a huge convention; my aunts were there, my uncles, my cousins – they were all there. Why do you think the relationships you’ve had end up so extreme? I’m very good at the beginning of a relationship, I start off with big visions. I’m going to be a film-maker, and you’re going to be married to the hotshot film guy! And I’m going to cast you in a film! But pretty soon all that stuff loses its edge and they find out that I’m unreliable and useless. What new perspectives have you gained from the experience? I think I have enormously improved on a practical level. A number of things the ex-girlfriends talked about, you know my tidiness, my lateness, my personal hygiene, even my sexual performance, they’re things, you know, I’ve addressed quite a lot since the making of the film. And I think I’ve improved massively.

‘Math-rock’ is a term bandied about a lot at the moment with the underground gone over-ground success of Brighton-based quintet Foals. They were influenced by a group of older American musicians formed by ex-members of some of the first wave of US bands given that tag in the nineties. Battles (good friends with Foals) came together when former Helmet and current Tomahawk drummer John Stanier joined with math-rock stalwarts Ian Williams on guitar (from Don Caballero) and fellow guitarist Dave Konopka (from Lynx). They met Tyondai Braxton, son of avant-jazz man Anthony Braxton, providing vocals and keyboard parts, and the band responsible for one of last year’s most acclaimed albums, Mirrored, was born. Mirrored is a fusion of jazzy guitar, distorted samples and the most distinctive dance floor ethic around. Playing with themes of light, symmetry and the ‘machine sound‘ – compared to the early EPs’ ‘nature sound‘. Drummer John Stanier is keen to point out the band has lost none of its passion. “We wrote these songs fully aware we’d be playing them for the next two years, so we made sure they were songs we liked.“ The band begin the songwriting process for their long awaited second album proper in October, as they are “not the kind of band that can write on tour“. Stanier’s other band, Tomahawk, are also due to start recording a fourth album soon, so his last few busy years show no sign of letting up. Stanier may not hate his songs, but he and the rest of the band do hate the term ‘math-rock’. They repeatedly dismiss it when told that’s what they are, and to read it so often in this article will irritate the hell out of them. “It’s so inaccurate and such an old term. I don’t think any of us sit around listening to math bands. It’s got negative connotations, sounding boring – prog-rock, lame.
I hate it when people call us ‘math-rock’ but on the other hand I can see people’s need to categorise.” It’s surely understandable, then, that ‘math’ gets applied to the band’s work as they employ a technique pioneered by vocalist Ty’s father using geometrical diagrams when writing songs. Stanier sees it as a necessary part of making their complex songwriting process easier. “We work on one song for a bit, then another, then back to that one. At first we tried to record our rehearsals but that became a pain in the ass. It’s easier writing it down. It’s a very mathematical process. We give specific parts weird, memorable names, making it easier to remember. There are so many parts; you can’t just put ‘bass part’ or something. You have to name it, so that’s what we do.” Though a ‘super-group’ of sorts, Battles is a band for which the music itself is key to their image. Unlike other high-profile collaborations, where band members’ personalities are almost more important than the music, Stanier explains this band is different. “We didn’t want to emphasise what bands we were in. I wouldn’t say we’re imageless. We’re not a boy band, but it’s more just about Battles and something new and fresh. We didn’t want to imply it was a sideproject. We wanted it more real than that.“ Battles last played Brighton a year ago, at the Concorde 2. Stanier remembers it as a ‘cool place’ and is a big fan of Quadrophenia – filmed in the area. After playing a storming Glastonbury set where they ‘destroyed the place’, the band are on good form, despite the cancelled Wild In The Country festival they were due to play, which he describes as ‘totally f**ked up’. Ready to conquer a sold out Concorde once again, Battles should be one of the best gigs of the summer. Battles, 15 July, Concorde 2

MUSIC REVIEWS A weekly review of local and national releases Gentle, harmony-rich, string-laden and time-worn country flavours permeate the new album by Micah P. Hinson and The Red Empire Orchestra. There’s an upbeat skip to the music, counteracted by Hinson’s weary, gravelly voice that belies his 27 years. Young folkie Seth Lakeman is a hard-working fellow, constantly gigging and playing the festival circuit, crossing over into non-folk terrain and Micah P. Hinson and The winning hearts and minds with his Red Empire Orchestra energetic live shows. Although lyrically he’s sometimes bogged down in the fogs of his Dartmoor past, Poor Man’s Heaven is really a rather groovy, dancey album – big on rhythm, and small on fiddle-dee-dee. Still going strong after over 20 years in the physically-sapping world of hioctane rock’n’roll, Primal Scream deliver another superb album Beautiful Future. Another heady mix of Philly soul, dark electro, rock’n’roll riffing, and pop, guests include CSS’s Lovefoxx, folk singer Linda Thompson and Queens of the Stone Age Josh Homme. The first half is classic Scream, the second half drifts somewhat down narcotic avenues. Brighton’s Drookit Dogs have their debut album out now, a collection of some of their live favourites over the last couple of years mixed in with some newer tunes. Gypsy punk/folk mixed in with rockier 70s style sounds and new wave-esque tunes. Matt White sneers and sarcasts his way beautifully throughout this dynamic album. Fat Cat label artist Max Richter is embracing the 21st century with 24 Postcards in Full Colour, an exploration of the ringtone as a vehicle for music performance. Hence, these short vignettes are simple compositions, often repetitive or with a simple melody attached. Nevertheless there is a heavyweight intellectualism at work here, with premieres planned for art galleries via the use of SMS messaging. Music as art… Carl Barat and Dirty Pretty Things continue to operate in the shadow of Pete Doherty – despite Barat being closer to the musical template of The Libertines than his former colleague. Romance at Short Notice may have sad and overly angst-ridden teenage overtones, but musically it’s still raw and rocking stuff, complete with unpredictable song structures. A grower. If waltzing, boogaloo ska, carnivalesque beats, fairground jazz, voodoo vibes are your jivebag then look no further than the awesome Bristol band Zen Hussies, a favourite on the festival circuit and always guaranteed to make you smile. New album Continental Adaptor is out now, and it swings and swaggers throughout. Strokes geetarist Albert Hammond Junior continues to make excellent music on the side via his solo moniker. Second album Como Te Llama is Strokesque (with little hints of Big Star/Alex Chilton), and with those typical Television/New York new wave motifs, but Hammond is a very talented songwriter, and quality song craft shines throughout.

Brighton’s only weekly gay guide
Will Harris ponders the whys and wants of gay parenting
Education to stop bullying Brighton and Hove City Council has been urged to make a commitment to stamp out homophobia in schools. The Green Group has called for the council to sign up to Stonewall's Education Champions Programme. Cllr Bill Randall, Green council spokesman on LGBT issues, presented a petition at a council cabinet meeting last week. He decided to put together the petition after Latest Gay told him about the national campaign. Cllr Randall said: “Green Party councillors wholeheartedly support this important initiative. Children who learn in schools that homophobic bullying is unacceptable and can destroy lives will carry that message into their adult life in the work place and the wider community. “We presented a petition to the Brighton and Hove City Council cabinet meeting urging the council to sign up to the programme. We are confident this will be done at the earliest opportunity.“ Education cabinet member Vanessa Brown said she would look closely at the idea. She added that the authority was already working hard to combat homophobic bullying. She said: “We work closely with schools in trying to eradicate it. We have anonymous surveys every year about bullying and we take it very seriously.“ Stonewall staff and the charity’s co-founder Ian McKellen met with Gordon Brown recently to discuss projects such as their ‘Education for All‘ programme. Ben Summerskill, chief executive of Stonewall, said: “The Prime Minister offered his full support to the work we’ve been doing in tackling homophobic bullying in Britain’s schools. He promised that the Government wanted to do more in this area. He clearly had a really good understanding of the damage that bullying can do.“ The first members of the Education Champions Programme are Birmingham City Council, Wigan Metropolitan Borough and the London Boroughs of Waltham Forest, Brent and Southwark. Stonewall's recent School Report found two thirds of LGBT pupils were regularly victims of homophobic bullying and 98 per cent regularly heard insults such as “bender“, “queer“ and “dyke“.
Pride access for all Pride and the Brighton & Hove Federation of Disabled People are working together to improve accessibility to this year’s parade and park event on Saturday 2 August. These include a pre-booked park-and-ride service, accessible toilets and a viewing platform to watch the parade. These options will need to be booked through the Federation of Disabled People at www.bhfederation.org.uk These new facilities are in addition to the access tent run by Spectrum and Brighton & Hove Federation of Disabled People, signers and support on access needs from Pride organisers. Pride trustee Kath Browne said: “LGBT people who have access issues can experience exclusion both from LGBT activities, 30 latest 7
communities, venues and events as well as from disabled activities, venues and events. We are building each year to make the full breadth of Pride’s activities accessible. We hope this year’s improvements will enable more LGBT people to come to Pride and celebrate their lives.” Geraldine DesMoulins, chief officer of Brighton & Hove Federation of Disabled People said: “As part of our commitment to improve accessibility in the city, we are delighted to be working with Pride to improve accessibility to this important event.”
I have a confession to make, and I really hope you won’t think any less of me for it: children frighten me. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not scared of them in the same way I’m scared of spiders or the sight of denim jackets on anyone over 35, but there’s something about kids that always puts me on edge. Of course it’s a totally irrational fear, this sense of supreme awkwardness whenever I see a little face staring up at me, and I’ve never quite been able to put my finger on the cause of it. Could it be that children make me nervous because of what they represent: that white-bread idea of the traditional family unit? Something which, deep down, I’ve always presumed I’ll never have? Since civil partnerships were introduced, increasing numbers of gay couples have been trading in the parties and poppers of their singledom for a life of smug married bliss, with everything that entails. And by everything that entails, I don’t just mean hers and hers matching pyjamas and Sunday afternoons spent tinkering with the lawnmower. I’m talking kids. The gays want to raise a family! Obviously, I don’t have a problem with this (I’m all for it, so long as my ex doesn’t settle down before me). I’m just not sure if it’s for me.
“Did anyone call my mother an unfit parent because she couldn’t prise the custard creams from my grubby little paws?” Leaving aside the fact that my friends have pretty much unanimously vetoed the idea of me ever breeding (“You’d leave it in a shop!”), I don’t know that I’d ever have the energy to raise a child, much less to deal with all the obstacles and criticisms that I’m told raising a child in a gay family would invite. I barely have the energy to finish this column, and I’m being paid for this! The problem is that there’s something about the idea of gay parents that sends a shiver down the spine of middle England. Some argue that same-sex parents will naturally – or rather, unnaturally – threaten the sexual identities of their progeny; others that gay couples lack the long-term stability of straight marriages. Perhaps most worrying of all is the notion that these kids will inevitably be bullied because of their parents’ sexuality. Children get bullied for a whole range of reasons. I was bullied for being fat, but did anyone call my mother an unfit parent because she couldn’t prise the custard creams from my grubby little paws? Aren’t they missing the bigger picture here? Which is that the real root of the problem is homophobia from the kids’ peers, not anything lacking in gay parents themselves, or their children; and that their misplaced concern for the future of the nation is actually contributing to that homophobia, and making life more difficult for those they’re seeking to ‘protect’. Maybe then, as a gay man the thing that scares me most about children isn’t that I might not have them. Maybe, just maybe, it’s that I might.

She says it how she sees it
Living With... The Cheeky Girls Wednesday 9 July, 9pm. Living TV The Cheeky Girls have a show of their own. And if I am to be completely honest, I will probably watch it out of sheer curiosity, but I won’t tell anyone I have so I’m trusting you to keep that quiet!? I have never fully understood the point of these two girls but I have always been slightly curious about how they keep their confidence up so high! They clearly think very highly of themselves – even on the adverts for the show there are quite a few images of them sitting randomly in bikinis taking pictures of themselves. And then there is the relationship between Gabriela and the MP Lembit Opik! Which, let’s face it, is a bit weird. Although they both have wonky mouths so quite potentially match very well. And there is the rumour that they all live together in one big happy house – that’s Gabriela, Monica their mum and the MP. What more could you want from a reality TV series?
“Being Transylvania’s second best export is a weird title to give yourselves but they seem happy with it” I am kind of surprised this hasn’t happened before. We have either used up all our reality TV resources or the rumours that the Cheeky Girls are going bankrupt is true! Either way it will give us something odd to look at. Being Transylvania’s second best export is a weird title to give yourselves but they seem happy with it – and let’s face it, they have got to make the most of things haven’t they? There are also rumours that their younger niece will be releasing a single, no doubt managed by the mother who helped come up with such classics as ‘The Cheeky Song (Touch my Bum)’, ‘Take Your Shoes Off’ and ‘Have a Cheeky Christmas’. Perhaps a drinking game could come of this – every time they say “Cheeky cheeky” in that irritating and upbeat way they do, you should down a shot of whatever it is that takes your fancy (not that I am condoning Cheeky Girl-influenced drinking, but it may make the show even more fun!). Perhaps they have a new single they want to release, or perhaps the mum is trying to set up her own clothing line, full of tiny sparkly shorts and cut-off T-shirts with “Cheeky” written across the front. Believe it or not I have run out of things to say about the Cheeky Girls. Which to be frank says everything about the Cheeky Girls. I am sad and therefore I will probably watch this. It is in no way something I would cancel plans for, or, come to think of it, move across the room to fetch the remote control for. But it will be entertaining in the same way Jordan and Peter are! 32 latest 7

15 – 21 July
Movies on the box this week
TUESDAY 15 25th Hour ★★★★✩ (2002, BBC1, 11.25pm. Dir Spike Lee) Spike Lee caught the post-9/11 American mood with this classy drama about a drug dealer (Edward Norton) drinking and scheming through the last 24 hours before he goes in the slammer. So does he stay and face the music, or do a runner? Watch and find out…
WEDNESDAY 16 What’s Love Got To Do With It
★★★★✩ (1993, BBC1, 11.10pm. Dir Brian Gibson) Angela Bassett channels Tina Turner in this barn-storming adaptation of her warts ‘n all autobiography, I, Tina. The scenes of one-time hubbie Ike (played by Laurence Fishburne) beating her up are understandably vicious, but the mood is lightened by plenty of polished dance numbers.
SATURDAY 19 Derailed ★★✩✩✩
(2005, BBC1, 10pm. Dir Mikael Håfström) Chicago family man Clive Owen falls for femme fatale (no, really) Jennifer Aniston in a tepid thriller that nevertheless has a fantastic cast. When the couple check into a seedy motel, an intruder means it’ll be a night they both remember for all the wrong reasons.
The Conversation ★★★★✩
Jackass: The Movie ★✩✩✩✩
(1974, Sky Movies Indie, 2.20pm. Dir Francis Ford Coppola) This paranoid remake of sixties art house classic Blow Up finds Gene Hackman as a geeky surveillance agent obsessed with a snippet of recorded conversation. His life slowly falls apart as he discovers the shadowy organisation he spies for might just be spying on him.
(2002, Channel 4, 10.10pm. Dir Jeff Tremaine) Johnny Knoxville and co took their distinctive brand of lowest common denominator TV stunts straight to the big screen in this bewilderingly successful flick. If watching rednecks and assorted freaks clamp baby alligators to their nipples is your bag, then please – have it.
The Lonely Guy ★★★★✩ (1984, BBC1, 11.05pm. Dir Arthur Hiller) Comedy writer Neil Simon scored an uncharacteristic miss when he helped pen the script for this early80s turkey. Steve Martin tries to play it straight as a melancholy New Yorker who’s just been dumped by his girlfriend, but you get tired waiting for the laughs to arrive.
(1962, More 4, 9pm. Dir Stanley Kubrick) Stanley Kubrick attempts to film the unfilmable in this controversial adaptation of Vladimir Nabakov’s infamous semi-pornographic novel. James Mason plays the tortured anti-hero Humbert Humbert, a man who develops a rather unhealthy (and maybe murderous) obsession with his landlady’s little girl.
Weird Science ★★✩✩✩ (1985, Sci-Fi, 10pm. Dir John Hughes) A couple of friendless nerds manage to conjure the perfect pixillated hottie (Kelly LeBrock) out of their computer in this none-more-1980s teen flick. Average vintage yuks are there for the taking, but some of the dialogue (and most of the sexual politics) look as rickety as their ancient computer.
MONDAY 21 True Lies ★★★✩✩ (1994, ITV1, 10.40pm. Dir James Cameron) Arnold Schwarzenegger is as good as he ever gets in this entertaining action comedy in which he plays a special agent who has to fight terrorists while hiding his chosen profession from her indoors (Jamie Lee Curtis). He can’t do comedy, but Jamie more than makes up for it.
tuesday 15 10 Years Younger Channel 4, 8pm Nicky Hambleton Jones and her team have got their work cut out – keeping a straight face. Lovely Marilyn Cooke has backcombed her 80s hair and attacked it with giant hairspray cans for decades, and her orange complexion and ill-fitting dentures don’t help matters. Can the gang help. Or is it The Time Warp again?
Olympic Dreams: The Class of 2012 BBC1, 10.35pm We’ve spent all the dosh, we’d better have some hope of scooping up some of the sparkly things they hang around necks at the end of each event. This is the first in a four-part series looking at the youngsters of now we’re hoping will be the winners of 2012. Time to feel inadaquate.
Smallville: Superman The Early Years E4, 9pm & 10pm It’s a new series – yay! And Kara’s here – yay! And Clark starts hearing his mother’s voice from Kara’s crystal – eh? Yes, parental communication has always been what Krypton crystals have been about. Then, a fella plants a bomb on Chloe to force her to find out about 33.1.

wednesday 16 Room 101 BBC2, 10pm It’s the time of the self-deprecating celebrity as Sheila Hancock tries to put herself in Room 101.

Will the boss try out the factory floor?

With a dead sarky computer – wonderful use of anonymity here – and a little commentary from Jenny Frost, we’re all set.
