Exhibitors were carefully selected from over 300 applications and the aim of the fair is to exhibit original and innovative work across a wide spectrum of media and styles. Brighton Art Fair was an opportunity for new and experienced art buyers to meet the artists, including Brighton favourite Patrick O’Donnell, and buy work in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Swanning around Alison Swann is out on the road and not exactly feeling wanted
Wheel love Cycling in Brighton is great. Well, it is if you like going around in circles (The Level); swerving out in front of huge lorries (Lewes Road); or if you like taking a huge leap of faith attempting to use two wheels to navigate your way from Churchill Square to the bottom of North Street. And as for Trafalgar Street… Okay, there are positive sides to this story. The new cycle path up to The Downs is brilliant, the open-to-all space of New Road is a pleasure, as are the nippy little paths around the New England Quarter. And I love zipping along the seafront on the great go-faster tarmac even if I do get RSI from ringing my bell to get wanderers out of the way. Sadly, it would take me rather a long time to get to work if I only used the cycle paths that I felt safe on and which were a pleasure to use. So it’s out into the hurly-burly; swear and dare across the city alongside my fellow commuters every morning. I’m not alone – there are many people in our city using two wheels to get to work. Which, for some reason, seems to annoy a percentage of the driving population.
“I’m no dyed-in-the-wool, hemp-wearing, hippydippy cliché who wants to ban all cars, but why is it such a challenge to cycle across town?” The wrath that burns from the eyes of some drivers queuing on Union Road (which was brilliantly renamed ‘Onion‘ Road by a joker with a marker pen) when I cycle past them in the morning is quite shocking. I’m not getting in anybody’s way. I’m not scratching their car and I am in fact, in an indirect way, helping in their inch-by-inch progress along the road because if I were in a car I would be adding to the traffic jam. For every cyclist on the road there is potentially one less car. And one less car means, Mister (I’m sorry but it usually is a bloke) Car Driver, you get along that road all the quicker.
Now, I’m no dyed-inthe-wool, hemp-wearing, hippy-dippy Brighton cliché who wants to ban all cars, but what I have been wondering is why, when three years ago Brighton was given the status of one of the five national ‘cycling demonstration towns’ in the UK and a whacking great £3million investment to make it happen, it is still such a challenge to even just cycle across town? There is no doubt that progress has been made (a 22 per cent increase in the number of bikes on the road) and this has been awarded with a recent extension of government funding to push forward with construction of further cycle lanes. But this is going to mean nothing as long as there is such a mismatched expectation of who has priority on the road between car drivers, motorcyclists and bike riders. The problem I find the most challenging is the attitude of car drivers who will park where they like and drive without due care and attention to the needs of cyclists on the road. Every morning I go to pull into the ASL box (the red box for cyclists) by St Peter’s Church and the car/lorry/whatever driver in the front of the queue is already straddling it, singing along to the radio while stuffing a sandwich in their face. So how are we all going to get along? The Dutch have it sussed, the bikes have their own lanes pretty much, but that clearly isn’t practical in an already congested city. I’ve read a lot of comments on news stories to do with cars and bikes where car drivers claim their superior stake to the road by saying they pay a car tax. I wonder, if there was a road tax for bikes would the playing field then level out? There would then be further funding to add to the cycle network and this financial argument would be blown out of the water. There’s a long way to go. And every time someone disregards the laws of the road there is going to be misunderstanding and resentment. I’m just hoping the price of petrol is going to force everyone out of their cars. That’ll learn ‘em.

Sandra Omo teams up with PYNK Studios to offer a very special reader prize
Dani considers getting older and entering the grown-up world I didn’t believe people when they would tell me that time seems to go quicker the older you get. I believe them now. Because it is true. I can’t believe it is already October. The shops are now starting to add Christmas cards to their stock and the nights are drawing in. I am not sad to see the summer go. It has never been my favourite season. The only reason I could feel sad is because it has passed in a blink. The reason I think time appears to slip away so rapidly when you are a grown-up is because you have to live grown-up lives. The monotonous way we work nine to five, try and make the most of our weekends, go shopping, go to work, eat, go to bed and do it all again the next day. We plan things like holidays a year in advance and spend all our days willing away the time until the plane takes off. Time flies when you are a grown-up because you want it to. Because you spend your time wanting the months to pass until you reach a Monday when you don’t have to set the alarm. In general I look forward to Christmas because it is a disruption to the everyday norm (that and the presents).
“I have started writing a book, but I have the view: ‘Who would ever want to read it?’”
As Model City clocks one year this week, I find myself pondering on many things the past few days as I have never before. I never thought that a day would come when I could look back at my career and see the past one year penned down, not only for myself, but for people who have been inspired by my story as well as the stories of models and non-models I have told. As I flip through all the Model City articles of the past year with a couple of my family members, there are some experiences they wonder how I could bear. They ask me: “How were you able to take it or compose yourself after it, let alone write it for the world to read?” Well, the fact is that modelling is a collective experience. I am proud that even people who are not associated with modelling are coming to terms with what modelling is really like by reading Model City as I tell it the way it really is, no sugar coating, guys, because the industry does not sugar coat it for us. So why should I?
Win a photoshoot and portfolio with PYNK Studios So as a big thank you to everyone that has supported Model City through the past year, we have teamed up with PYNK, one of London’s best fashion photography studios (www.pynklondon.com), to give one lucky reader and a friend a chance to win an amazing photo shoot experience (worth £250), coupled with a portfolio (worth £1200). This is a must-have prize for all aspiring models! The lucky winners will receive a whole day of pampering by PYNK’s experienced make-up artists and hairstlylists, champagne on arrival, a well-guided photo shoot, plus a fabulous portfolio to take away with you! The experience is amazing and the portfolio unbeatable, and all you need to do to enter is answer this simple question: Which month was the first Model City article published? A: October B: September C: August TO ENTER/TERMS & CONDITIONS: Email your answer along with your name, age and phone number to email@example.com with ‘Model’ in the subject line. The winner will be announced in two weeks. The competition is open to all Model City readers, not just models. Minors must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. The prize must be redeemed by mid-December on a weekday appointment. On the day, come along with freshly washed hair, and no make-up. Bring at least four wardrobe changes, shoes and accessories. Make-up and hairstylist is included. Travel to the London studio is not included. The winner’s shoot will be featured in a future issue of Latest 7. 8 latest 7
I know I am not the only person trapped in the ‘Is this it?’ syndrome. I know I am not the only person who spent the entire of their childhood wanting to be a grown-up only to have gotten here and forgotten why. I don’t want to be a child again but I don’t like the grown-up existence I have fallen into. I miss getting stressed because I can’t quite work out how to tie my laces because I don’t think I can stretch my pay packet until the next payday. I still try and take pleasure in the little things that I did when I was smaller. I am pleased to announce that my taste buds still haven’t fully grown up yet. I very much still do mind what colour sweet I have (black and red sweets are always best). I have made an effort to ensure I am not trapped in this repetitive world, but once I have finished my degree I will be trapped in a similar world but this time with a qualification, which I doubt makes it any different. I have started writing a book, but I have the same views about that as I do about this: ‘Who would ever want to read it?’. Routine is good for me. Since being hit in the face with a nervous breakdown, spontaneity is a thing of the past as it can generally leave me with a panic attack. I really don’t think it is wrong to not want to wake up to an alarm every weekday of my working life. I don’t think it is wrong to actually want to live some of your life. You can tell I am in a bit of a mad mood currently. Preferring to sit at home and vegetate (which is nothing from the norm except I can’t be bothered to pretend to smile during the day anymore). Why can’t I be the grown-up I always imagined I would be?

Celebcity with Jo Brooks
Hot gossip Katie Price gives the lowdown on her recent surgery and the Naked Chef’s been a busy boy Our loveable Katie Price has spoken for the first time publicly about her latest trip to Los Angeles to have a new wave of plastic surgery. The trip saw Katie have her fifth boob job, lip injections, new dental work plus a bit of botox for good measure. However, all the procedures didn’t go exactly to plan as the glamour girl stayed in hospital for 13 days instead of the routine five. In a recent interview Katie said: “I was getting the veneers on the back of my teeth finished on this trip. As soon as I landed I went straight to the dentist. I woke up the next day and went to have my boobs done and was under for five hours. Afterwards I was in a bit of state and the people at the clinic kept waking me and giving me injections of painkillers and sedatives. I was trying to talk to them to tell them my arm felt paralysed, but apparently I was just slumped over and couldn’t talk.” She continued: “They were worried, so the surgeon decided he’d have to put me under again and sort out the problem. They had to undo all the stitches on my boobs, I was under for another three hours in the end.” So, is Katie now happy with her smaller boobs? “Yes! They’re exactly how I wanted them! If not more. I put on a dress the other day and was like bloody hell, where’s my chest gone? I love them, though.” You can currently see Katie and Peter’s antic on Katie and Peter: The Next Chapter, on ITV2 every Thursday at 9pm.
Pukka Jamie Oliver is going to be a dad for the third time. The 33-year-old, who is due to open a restaurant in Brighton next year, and his wife Jools already have daughters Poppy and Daisy who are six and five. The cheeky chef will also be back on our screens this autumn with his brand new show for Channel 4 – Ministry of Food. Jamie said: “I’m massively excited about my new project, Ministry of Food and a new food movement, called ‘Pass it On’, that I’m hoping will be a huge part of it. My new book, Jamie's Ministry of Food and the TV show (also called Ministry of Food) will both be coming out in the next couple of weeks. They’re both basically about inspiring people to get back into their kitchens and make simple, delicious food from scratch again. Although there are loads of great things to say about the state of cooking and food in this country, there are also quite a few negatives. We Brits have one of the highest obesity rates in Europe; we love our ready meals and takeaways and seem to be eating more of them then ever. We really seem to have lost the plot a bit when it comes to passing on our cooking skills from generation to generation - so much so, that some of the people I met in my cooking classes while filming the TV show didn’t know how to mash a potato”. The first episode airs on Tuesday 30 September.

Bare cheek Brian Mitchell and Joseph Nixon’s thoroughly scurrilous Brighton column
How to write Bare Cheek Here at Bare Cheek we get many letters asking how easy it is to break into the lucrative world of writing satirical and amusing copy for local property magazines. Well, the answer is that it isn’t easy at all – it’s actually very, very hard! So we’ve decided to pass on a few tips to help you on your way.
Variety This is a bad idea. People hate variety – they find it unsettling and scary. What they like is to see the same old rubbish again and again and again. This is why EastEnders is a popular television programme. Thus, if you think of a clever or funny idea (or even a not particularly clever or funny idea) you should flog it to death and keep repeating it until the end of time.
The magazine you write for will doubtless have a family readership. Moreover, some of that readership will be the sort of stupid ***** who complain about bad language by phoning up or writing letters. So avoid words like ****, ****, ********, ****, ****, ************, ****, and especially ****.
Libel It is very important not to have a libellous statement published, as this could get you or your magazine sued for a great deal of money. For example, a statement like ‘Jeremy Clarkson is a flasher’ would be viewed as libellous, as it is defamatory, and not true – Jeremy Clarkson is not, nor has ever been a flasher. Also the subject of the libellous comment ‘Jeremy Clarkson is a flasher’ is a famous, influential, and wealthy man, which greatly increases

CAPRICORN (DEC 21–JAN 19).
A little research tells me that Aries should drive sporty red cars. Well, not the Arians I know, no sir. Aries should almost certainly be taking the bus, buying a weekly pass at least…
Something curvy and comfortable for you? How predictable, a new shell. No Cancer, go mad, I can see you all on big fat Harley Davidsons – riding sidesaddle of course
Something pretty and quiet. I’m not sure I know what a pretty car looks like but quiet I do understand. I had a quiet car once. It wouldn’t go. This week’s research is deeply odd.
No surprises here: 4x4, and you can stay off the roads for good. We all know that all incidents of road rage involve one or more Scorpios. We need to rid roads of 4x4s; let’s start with you.

From the same source Taureans should drive green people carriers. Unsound advice if you are single and childless. No, Taurus, no dull people carrier for you – get on yer bike.
Something sleek that looks better than you. How rude. I’m not getting a good feeling about this source. You get the car that makes you happy Leo, looks are not everything.
Ah, jet black and sleek for you and for once I agree.Scorpio needs that carapace of sophistication to hide the inner banger. Go for it and get tinted windows too.
Small and wacky… Oh dear back top stereotypes. Vintage and classy I say. Something chic like a Fiat 500 in oyster white with a petrol blue stripe and a sunroof.
GEMINI (MAY 22–JUNE 21)
VIRGO (AUG 23–SEP 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 22–DEC 20)
PISCES (FEB 20–MAR 20)
For Geminis something nifty in silver with plenty of gadgets. Great thinking – distract them while they should be concentrating on the road. I think not, best let Gemini walk.
Something clean for Virgo they say. Again more glib answers. Fight the stereotype, something racy and open top should do the trick. I like the idea of a Virgo in an E-Type Jag.
Oh dear, I am as one this time. They say a caravan and I agree. Static if possible please, in mushroom with an eau de nil go-slower stripe. Poor Sagis, do we all think you are the crumbliest star?
Something stylish, something sleek – what a load of old codswallop. Listen, ditch the car and treat yourself to a bag of chips at Bardsley’s. Then stroll home. So much for research…

LATESTNEWS Phil Mills reports on the knock on effect that the global economic situation is having on local crime rates
Credit crunch crime Burglaries are on the rise again in Sussex, backing predictions by the Government that the credit crunch could send crime rates spiralling. Figures obtained by Latest 7 show a three per cent increase during June to September this year, compared to the previous three months. The quarterly total broke the 1,000 barrier, meaning there are now about 12 break-ins every day. Sussex Police are quick to point out that overall crime is down and burglaries are way below the level they were ten years ago. With the price of household goods like DVDs and TVs proportionately much lower than ever, breaking into people’s homes had become less lucrative.
“More than 13,000 fewer people in Sussex became victims of crime and 5.5 per cent more offenders were brought to justice last year“ But it seems the worsening economic climate and increasing unemployment is making thieves once again turn to house breaking. Sussex Police is watching the situation closely and is urging householders to ‘think security’, especially with the darker evenings on the way. A force spokesman said: “There was a massive 60 to 70 per cent drop in burglaries in the past ten years but we are noticing signs they are on the rise again. “Domestic burglaries are very much a high priority for us and we take them extremely seriously, but the new figures need to be taken in the context of there being an overall fall in crime.” More than 13,000 fewer people in Sussex became victims of crime and 5.5 per cent more offenders were brought to justice last year. In the case of domestic break-ins, there were 4,211 reported in the year to August, compared to 4,246 during the previous 12 months, a decrease of less than one per cent.
Denis Healey, the artist Pictures by Lord Healey, former Labour Chancellor of the Exchequer and an accomplished photographer, will form part of an interactive multimedia exhibition at the University of Sussex this autumn. Lord Healey, 91, was defence

secretary between 1964 and 1970, and chancellor from 1974 to 1979. Curated by students, ‘Denis Healey: Furniture of the Mind‘ features more than 30 original and digitised portraits of well-known political figures of his era, including a young Condoleezza
Now, all of a sudden, they are spiking upwards, but the trend is not confined to Sussex. A survey among the 42 police constabularies in England and Wales showed about half were experiencing the same problem. In some cases, the rise was even sharper than in Sussex and one or two had increases in excess of five per cent. It suggests the years of falling statistics may be coming to an end. In a letter leaked to the press, Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith warned that crime levels will increase during the credit crunch and said there will be 'significant upward pressure on acquisitive crime [theft, burglary, robbery] during a downturn.‘ It said that if the economic slowdown was on a similar scale to the last recession, property crime would be likely to rise by seven per cent this year and a further two per cent in 2009. Sussex Police are urging people to check their household security measures and, if they need advice on locks, alarms and precautions, to contact crime prevention officers on 0845 6070 999 or www.sussex.police.uk
Rice and former Prime Minister of Israel Golda Meir, as well as interviews with Lord Healey and his wife, Edna. The exhibition will be held in the University's state-of-the-art teaching and learning space, InQbate, and is open to the public from Saturday 11 to Friday 17 October. Denis Healey has taken photographs since he received a Brownie 2A box camera at the age of 11. Many of his photographs are from his travels and capture images of people in their own environments and landscapes. His love of family life and of the countryside around his home near Alfriston is also in evidence. Art historian Professor David Mellor, who has co-ordinated the exhibition, said the exhibition presented a unique record of political life from 1957 through to recent times. Students involved in curating the exhibition are: Art History undergraduates Charlie Sluter, Luska Mengham and Carol Dowson; Media Practice and Theory undegraduates Cherry Amos, Lucy Lyon, Charlotte Charlton and Peter Harte; History
undergraduate Eleanor Probyn Gibbs. Luska said: “This has been a brilliant experience. Lord Healey is so enthusiastic – not just about photography, but also about poetry, music and art. “We chose the title of the exhibition, ‘Furniture of the Mind‘, quoted from one of his books, to embody the ‘compartments’ and the extent of his eclectic interests and passions.“
Brighton and Hove could cash in on its own version of the Olympics from hosting the UK’s biggest company sports event next year. The UK Corporate Games brings together up to 6,000 competitors from companies and organisations annually. Council officials say the event in June 2009 would inject up to £3million into the local economy. Employees compete at sports and pastimes ranging from dragon boat racing and dominoes to football and badminton. Teams will range in size from individuals to hundreds. Representatives of the games have visited Brighton and Hove and declared it suitable. Brighton and Hove’s bus fleet has been recognised as one of the greenest in the country. An emissions report published by leading independent transport consultancy, the TAS Partnership shows the city buses are ranked second in a league table of the country’s bus companies for clean emissions. It is only beaten by Oxford’s buses, which, like Brighton and Hove buses, are run by the G0-Ahead group.
Young apprentices Skills Secretary, John Denham, and Children’s Secretary, Ed Balls, visited City College Brighton and Hove to meet hairdressing apprentices. The ministers’ visit coincided with the announcement that the minimum weekly earnings for all apprentices in England will be increased from £80 to £95 a week next year. The increase follows a review of apprentice pay carried out this year by Department of Innovation, Universities and Skills, and the Department for Children, Schools and Families. The average net earnings of an apprentice each week is £170 but the government wants to ensure that the earnings of all apprentices are fair and that they should reflect the support given to young people pursuing other
qualifications. The new £95 minimum, to start from August 2009, will benefit an estimated 26,000 (about 10 per cent) apprentices. John Denham says: “We have rescued apprenticeships. We have trebled the number of people taking them up since 1997. Over 60 per cent of people now complete their apprenticeships compared to just over 20 per cent a few years ago.” Ed Balls looks ahead, saying: “Our radical plan to raise the education leaving age to 18 means we will need to create 150,000 more apprenticeships by 2013 for 16 and 17-year-olds who want to follow a vocational path into the world of work. It’s only fair that while people are working and training they are paid a decent wage.”

He throws buckets of paints at a huge canvas to create his latest piece for the festival. This was completed in the woods behind his studio. With brushes, Armitage then turned the piece into a painting called ‘Sarabande.’ Armitage is also the popular illustrator of the Lighthouse Keeper series of books, who are written by his wife Ronda. Armitage’s work is part of the Chiddingly Festival, which celebrates its 30th anniversary. The festival runs until 18 October. www.chiddinglyfestival.co.uk.

Making waves Brighton and Hove City Council leader Mary Mears on changes in the city Have you noticed how crisp the mornings are getting? There’s no doubting it, we’re now well and truly into autumn. For some, this is a cause for glumness – the nights draw in and the weather usually takes a turn for the worse. For me, even though the temperature outside is dropping, there are lots of reasons to be cheerful as the city seems more warm and vibrant than ever. When I strolled along the Madeira Drive arches a few days ago, Brighton’s artists were really adding to the excitement in the city with a crescendo of colour. Local group AQUA (Artists Quarter Under the Arches) launched their Art Splash event which saw three contemporary painters engaged in a 24 hour ‘paintathon’ where some truly spectacular work was created. Last week also saw the announcement that Brighton and Hove will host next year’s Corporate Olympics. Though it’s not quite the real thing – we’re already warming up for when that arrives in 2012 – it will bring around £3million to the city and help further enhance our reputation as a venue for global events since previous hosts include Hawaii, San Francisco and Seville. Autumn also hails the beginning of the new term for Brighton and Hove’s two thriving universities. After a sleepy summer, the last few weeks has seen the arrival of over 22,000 students to the city. Brighton and Hove’s students bring a fantastic vibrancy to the city, as well as innumerable benefits to the local economy, and we are glad to have them here. However, it’s important that we strike the right balance between accommodating new students and remembering the needs of residents. The council’s Strategic Housing Partnership has commissioned research from Brighton University to look at the growth of the student population over the last five years and the impact they have on different areas of the city.
If you would like to comment on these stories please email email@example.com
One of the issues being investigated is the effect students have on the local housing market. With groups of students often living in bigger houses it can be more difficult for families to find homes suitable for their needs. We are working with universities, residents and landlords to understand the complexities of the problem and ensure that both students and residents can find appropriate accommodation. We also want to make sure that the city’s planning framework encourages new student accommodation near campuses, while favouring mixed housing and family homes elsewhere. So, if you’re one of the thousands of students who’ve had the good sense to choose this wonderful city, I want you to know that we are doing everything we can to accommodate you. I’m delighted to welcome you to Brighton and Hove – best of luck with the new academic year and I hope you enjoy the vibrancy of this wonderful city.

Alison’s got mail Dear Alison, I wouldn’t normally send fan mail! But just wanted to say how much I am enjoying your weekly “Swanning Around” piece. Happened to pick up the magazine for the first time in years last month and read your article, really enjoyed it and I have picked it up every week since. Particularly enjoyed this week’s (16 Sept) ‘Who Are You’ piece - fab. You seem to write from the heart which is really refreshing. More of the same please and any chance of a bigger article, a full page maybe? Anyway, I am not a stalker or anything so will leave it there. Best regards, Steve White
Robert has too… Dear Robert, Thank you for the article in Latest Homes on St James’s Street. Spot on. We have just restarted the St James’s Area Action Group (SJAAG). One of our objectives is to push for pedestrian priority for part or all of the street. It took us three years of hard work to get rid of the problems of street drinkers last time round. It has started to happen again so we need to work with the RAP to ensure it does not go downhill again. Regards, Mike Dalley
Bags of delight Just a note to thank you for my Helen Dickson bag won in your recent competition (Latest Homes issue 385). I am a great fan of Latest Homes magazine and always read it from cover to cover! Once again, many thanks for my prize bag. Yours faithfully, Janet Beth Hill, Regency Square, Brighton
Sensible planning, not overdevelopment I am grateful to the many readers of Latest Homes who have contacted me about over development in the city. After the fear of crime and the NHS, this topic is the third most raised issue in my post bag. Hove and Portslade has unique architecture with the wonderful mix of Regency, Georgian and modern buildings. It seems that those of us that live here want to keep the character we have. But that does not mean we are all against new developments. Far from it. The mix needs new buildings to keep our part of the city vibrant. However, this development must meet many criteria – sensitively designed of course, but also adequate off-road parking, sufficient school places, doctors’ surgeries within walking distance and so on. These are the challenges for our planners. A site suitable for redevelopment should not automatically be a densely organised housing project. These are just some of the reasons why I am against the Gehry towers at the King Alfred – there are much better proposals available. And why I am cautious about what is being proposed for the old bingo site in Portland Road. And why I am campaigning for City College to keep the character of the Connaught centre. But I am in favour broadly of the redevelopment of the Sackville Trading Estate and of the warehouse units in South Portslade. Yes the economy is important in political terms and for everyday life. Yes we want to see knife crime off our streets and many other priorities. But ‘quality of life’ also demands respect for the past and for living space. And it is up to politicians to try and make sure the balance is kept and not discarded as in so many other towns and cities. Thank you once again to those who have been responding to my surveys – available online at www.mikeweatherley.org.uk. Yours sincerely, Mike Weatherley Conservative parliamentary candidate, Hove and Portslade

Latest Sport Round ups and rumblings from the Latest Sports Bunker
Perpetual notion Latest Sport’s Joe Curtin on the crazy money makers in football getting away with it The idea of perpetual energy has been the Holy Grail of science for centuries. The first mention of a perpetual motion device is recorded as far back as the 12th Century. However its roots stretch far further back in time. Back to before the birth of Christ to the furthest edge of the Roman Empire, to a settlement called Novum Castrum super Tynumm. A place where the blue-woaded warriors of the Ancient Britons were loyal to their chief. A leader who secured a few telling victories over the Romans, but when it all got a bit too much he would retire. But the people would not hear of such a move and reappointed him even though it was clear his tactics were outdated and of no use against this new foe. The Roman historian Tacitus states: “The tribesman there, a passionate and wor-like (sic) race worshipped their Messiah. But the high priests of the temple they refer to as ‘Unaited’ machinated the end of the one the call Cevin of Cygan. But the people’s wrath was great and their devotion incalculable. As was their ire to that horrible little git Dennis Wise.”
“When Mike Ashley gets an email from a rich Nigerian promising £400million he might well get it” So the football merry-go-round spins on its crazy, internal-gravity led axis unabated. Curbishley and Venables are linked with Newcastle, as are Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum of the Godolphin stable and Nigerian oil barons. Unlike the rest of us when Mike Ashley gets an email from a rich Nigerian promising £400million he might well get it. An almost 150 per cent profit from running a proud club into the ground. Football is a place where non-rational love from the fans is given symmetry by the psychopathic greed and self-interest of the money men in charge. In the month that saw West Ham and Richard Scudamore, the Premier League’s chief executive taken to account over the the Tevez affair, Curbishley left the club citing boardroom interference. A £30million fine is nothing compared to money, not to mention the prestige Sheffield United lost through West Ham’s – and this is the only word for it – cheating. Like West Ham, Scudamore has been found guilty of gross misconduct, yet remains in his job without the slightest human decency to resign. Like West Ham, at the top of the game without a thought to decent people like Curbishley and Sheffield United fans. Is there any other field, apart from City bankers, where you can monumentally cock up (apart from mine – that bet on Spurs anyone?) and be rewarded? If we can harness this perpetual motion we will solve the world’s energy crisis overnight. Like City bankers the unmitigated greed in football is rewarded, and like Newcastle and Sheffield United fans it is decent hardworking people who suffer. The dark reflection in this is the poetic symmetry. The sardony of modern-day sport reflecting modern-day life. To paraphrase Plato: football is the state writ large. No wonder we are in such trouble. Our moral bankruptcy has led to this financial one. Still, spare a thought for Ashley and Scudamore next time you buy a ticket for a football match. If you can afford one.

Perfect peace Zara Baker finds peace and relaxation through Padma Ayurveda, the massage therapy for women
Padma Ayurveda (pad-ma eye-yer-veyduh) is a term not many people are familiar with. In short, it’s a beautiful massage therapy for women that works in harmony with the body. It’s eastern roots define padma as the sacred lotus, the goddess signifying growth, compassion and beauty. Ayurveda is defined as the ‘science of life,’ the traditional natural healing system of India. I met Sally Watkins, an Ayurvedic Massage Therapist in Brighton to discover how the treatment has been embraced by western culture. In a city where people rarely stop, Sally's treatment room is an oasis of calm in the heart of the city. I pass Padma Ayurveda daily to get to work, seeing it but never pausing to take in the lotus flower in the window, which also appears on her sign. This time, I stopped to take it in and called to make an appointment. Ayurvedic Massage Therapy has been practised in India for 5000 years. Whereas a regular massage works to ease tension and relax the muscles, Ayurvedia Massage is gentle, concentrating on the 107 vital energy points in the body. Stress from daily life can cause blockages that can lead to fatigue and imbalance. This form of massage releases the blockages, restoring balance. A treatment begins with a Q and A on your lifestyle. Sally then caters the massage (oils and pressure used) around the results. Our characteristics are soon pinpointed to a combination of three Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. People generally fall into more than one, but looking at my answers, Sally concluded I was a strong Pitta – made up of fire and water. These physical and emotional characteristics are an eye opener, and this is before the massage even begins. We are asked about our eating habits, sleeping habits, and even how fast we walk down the street and the connotations of this. One thing’s for sure, most of us can do with taking a step back and slowing down. The massage worked wonders, immediately clearing my mind for the 90 minute duration. The therapy incorporates massage and yoga stretches for emotional balance and wellbeing.I began seated in a chair, the arms, shoulders and head massaged simultaneously, combined with gentle stretches and focused breathing. Moving onto the massage couch, the back, legs and feet were then focused on, the oils detoxifying and the stretches restoring calm and relaxation to the body. It’s an hour and a half where you can focus on yourself, as points in the body are heightened. Gentle, relaxing and restoring, this is a therapy every female should indulge in.

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD&DRINK
Groovy gravy Andrew Kay makes a speedy return to The Half Moon in Plumpton for a splendid Sunday lunch It’s not been long since I visited the Half Moon for a meal, but I was out that way (camping yet again) and in serious need of a proper Sunday lunch. You know the kind: meat, gravy, a few veg, a Yorkshire pud… I had been pretty impressed on my first few visits and felt they deserved a second look. So, slightly damp from a weekend under canvas, I persuaded M&J to join me there. And how it had rained, we had thunder and lightening, showers, squalls and downright downpours. But at Plumpton the sun was shining and the terrace steaming. Inside we sat, for the first time, in the dining area. The menu included a good range of dishes and a choice of beef or lamb as the traditional roasts, but more of them later.
“I chose South Downs Lamb, why would you not? It is so good. And I was not disappointed” To start M chose a dish of cheese on toast with bacon and mushrooms. It was huge, really huge and sizzling hot. She declared it delicious and we reckoned she would have no room for anything else, but as ever, she proved us wrong. J had the far daintier chicken liver pate with walnuts, pickles and toast. I had this on a previous visit and it is very good indeed, soft, rich and tasty, and she agreed. I chose onion soup. I love soup, I have a belief that it will not over-fill me, although I suspect I am misguided in this. The onion soup was sweet and tasty and screamingly hot. I sipped delicately until it was cool enough to guzzle.

J chose a dish of salmon on a bed of ratatouille and spinach as a main and she was delighted by what arrived. Although technically the ratatouille was not quite authentic, roasted rather than stewed, she thoroughly enjoyed the dish and cleaned her plate. M is a beefy girl, in every sense of the word, and so for her there was no choice but to have the beef. Her plate came with thick, lean slices in plentiful proportions and an assortment of vegetables that included roast potato, carrot, parsnip, braised red cabbage, broccoli and mashed sweet potato. Slightly disturbed by the less than traditional mash she still managed to polish off the lot and was very impressed by her rich beef gravy and a home-made Yorkshire pudding that, although a little sharp baked, was at least not out of the freezer. I chose South Downs Lamb, why would you not? It is so good. And I was not disappointed. The chef had cooked it to perfection and it was lean and tender, sweet and succulent. The fat, and I love the fat, was crisp and tasty. I also had the same assortment of vegetables and I loved the sweet potato mash. My gravy, most impressively, was quite distinctly lamb gravy, a factor that impressed us all and although I am a firm believer that a Yorkshire pudding should come with beef and beef alone, I did not mind eating the one that sat atop my lamb. Mint sauce arrived without question and I was a very happy diner indeed. Far too full for dessert I sat back ready to watch as the other indulged and for a moment J was set to do so with the promise of her infused creme bruleé. But sadly the last had been sold and the next batch were vanilla. She was so disappointed. By the time M had chosen the tatin-style apple tart with calvados cream I had succumbed. Rather relying on those two to fulfil the pudding quotient of the review I now felt obliged to join in. So I ordered the creme bruleé. M loved the apple tart and in particular the toffee sauce on the side. My creme bruleé came with excellent crisp shortbreads and shards of dark and white chocolate. The custard was exactly the right texture – not too sweet; the crisp caramelised topping glassy and brittle, fine; and stopped just the right side of burnt. A few raspberries and a drizzle of fruit jus made the whole thing complete and I finally sat back feeling extremely piggy. J had a very smug grin on her face, the ‘I have been restrained look’ unlike her normal ‘I should be restrained’ one. The Half Moon was deservedly rammed and I was glad that we had booked. As we were preparing to leave a party of eighteen arrived demanding to be fed despite not having booked. Smilingly the staff rearranged tables and accommodated them, explaining that there might not be roasts for all. I think that is service beyond the call of duty.

Perfect place Andrew Kay finds peace, quiet and scrumptious food at Hove Place Two steps into Hove Place and I could not think why I had left it such a long time. This elegant bar is packed with character and charm, old world but with a modern slant. And a refreshing team serving, who were not all just out of school. It has the atmosphere of a Peter Cheyney novel of the 1930s There was a printed menu on each table, but also a blackboard of specials. I found a table, dropped my bags, returned to the car to fetch the dog (yes dogs are welcome) and settled down. My spritzer arrived almost before my laptop booted up and the whitebait I had chosen to start with followed soon after. I love whitebait and it’s a real pleasure eating them alone with no-one pinching them. These were crisp and plentiful. I chose not to eat the bread and butter, but only because I didn’t want to peak too soon. And I ate them with my fingers – uncouth, I know – but I like them that way. From the blackboard I chose a chicken enchilada. Not normally a fan of Mexican food I do actually enjoy these big parcels of spicy meat and this was no exception. To say it was generous would be under-egging the matter. It was huge and it was packed with lean chicken in a vibrant sauce that packed a punch without blowing my head off. On top, the flour tortillas were covered in toasted cheese and there were large dollops (it’s a technical term) of sour cream and guacomole and on the side a massive dressed salad that went way beyond the usual salad garnish. I tried ever so hard to eat it all but have to confess I failed, so generous was the portion. Needless to say this put paid to any idea of pud, but I did enjoy an excellent Americano. Had it been a little warmer I might have dined outside in the immaculate Italianate garden, but inside was cosy and friendly. Food is served till 8pm from Sunday through to Thursday and to 5pm on Friday and Saturday. Sunday lunches are very popular and booking is almost definitely required to guarantee a table.

ANDREW KAY LITE
Flyte of fancy Andrew Kay gets in the mix with an evening of cocktails at KOBA In the summer I drink ice cold lagers and cider, in the winter I drink real ales and whiskey, but all year round you will find me drinking cocktails. Yes, I am a mixology maniac with a great love of the stirred and the shaken. I like nothing better then sitting on a stool at a bar, chewing the fat with the bartender as they produce some fabulous drink for me to sip. I like the whole process, the cool vibe, and the slightly louche atmosphere, that touch of decadence. I like bars that are buzzing and filled with excitement. I like bars early in the evening when they are quiet, me on a stool – and a clandestine tryst between a couple hoping not to be seen in a dark corner. Yes, my name is Andrew Kay and I am a cocktailaholic. And in that flippant remark lies an element of a recent evening spent in one of my favourite local bars, KOBA. It opened in a burst of publicity a few years back and was at the forefront of Brighton’s place on the cocktail map, and after London, Brighton is most definitely ‘Cocktail Central’. Initially there was the front bar, soon followed by the very smart and exclusive private members bars behind. The décor was lush, the mood elegant and the crowd smart. Now the entire venue is open to the public and everyone can enjoy the sophistication that is KOBA. I went along quite early for a few drinks, four to be precise, and a chat about cocktail drinking. The most common mistake people make when drinking cocktails is mixing things up. You tip up, read the menu, choose a drink and settle back. Then when it’s time for the next drink, you read the menu again. It’s a bit like being in a sweet shop, spoilt for choice and all the choices sound so delicious. Four drinks into the evening and there is a good chance that working in this way you will have had eight shots of eight different spirits in a variety of combinations. It’s a recipe for disaster, but one that can easily be avoided by sticking to a few rules. I am normally a gin drinker, but I know that puts me in a minority with most people preferring vodka-based cocktails. So on this occasion I put my trust in the KOBA team, told them that I would be there for a while, four drinks in fact, and asked if the barman could come up with what I will describe as a flyte of cocktails. Take a look at the pictures and you will see that it could quite easily be described as a flight of fancy. Inspired by the challenge the guy with the shaker set about making us four truly great but distinctly different drinks. Some long, some short but all what I would describe as ‘grown-up’. By that I mean that they have a complexity of flavours, a great look and importantly a kick.
Orange Blossom Martini Belvedere Pomarancza Vodka muddled with grapes, white wine, lemon juice & gomme, balanced with elderflower cordial
French Caiporoska Wyborowa Lemon Vodka & Cointreau muddled with fresh lime & sugar served over crushed ice
Now four cocktails is a fair amount of alcohol but in his very safe hands I felt great, happy yes but not silly, and the next day no hangover, although I have a resistance, so that is not guaranteed. KOBA is as popular as ever; the staff are skilled and keen to make sure that you have a great experience. Ask their advice, tell them what spirits you like, how sweet or sour, long or short and then let them take you on a flyte of fancy. If you already know what you like and how you like it then tell them that too as they are fully experienced in making a wide range of both modern and classic cocktails, even if you cannot find it on their extensive menu.

Under review Here’s our round up of recent local shows, plus there’s oodles of reviews online at www.thelatest.co.uk Calendar Girls A living legend, a great film, and now a stage show. Could they pull it off, forgive the pun? The answer is, yes. Handled with delicacy this new stage version more than meets the challenge. The script is good, the staging excellent but above all this is casting brilliance. An all star cast could have too many divas, but this is ensemble work at its best. Full marks to all, but in particular to Sian Phillips whose timing milks every laugh, lines and pause, I wanted more of her. Lynda Bellingham is superb; Brigit Forsyth, hysterical; Gaynor Faye, glorious; Julia Hills, utterly convincing and Elaine C Smith sings like an angel and laughs like a demon. Patrica Hodge is rock solid at the centre of the tragicomedy although her accent is more Knightsbridge than Knapely. Moving, funny and heart warming, the story lives on. Chichester Festival Theatre, 16 September ✌✌✌✌ Andrew Kay
Esoterica A sell-out at the Edinburgh Fringe and compared to the devil himself, the only connection physically visible with magician, Eric Walton, is a sardonic, wicked smile and bewitching charm. As the New Yorker deftly delivers cool ‘how did he do that’ card tricks and memorable mindreading feats with members pulled from an excited audience, he’s also quick to comically improvise on the spot. Add an engaging verbal journey through the mystical, arcane, philosophical, metaphysical and psychological, and this cracking formula of contemporary magic and slick wit makes an original ‘magic show’. Paul Daniels this definitely was not! Hanbury Club, 17 September ✌✌✌✌ Monica Perdoni

HOT REVIEW OF THE WEEK Los Albertos If you’re looking for the ultimate unpretentious party band then look no further than this Brighton-based six-piece. Rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the best live acts around, they immediately set about getting heads a-bobbing and feet adancing throughout the sweaty confines of this excellent venue. Their ska-ish undertow is mixed with lashings of A-grade
funk, high energy soul and badass rock, underpinned by a tight as hell three-piece brass section and original songwriting. Sweep away all those sheeplike art rock and skinny jean types and instead immerse yourself instead in quality party music, pure and simple. Brunswick, 20 September ✌✌✌✌✌ Julie Andrew
assault of another manicured punchline. Polished and propped up by songs and a bag of props, it was like watching a one-man pantomime with puns and electronic backing music adding to the frenetic energy, each accompanied by a non sequitur punchline. Good at what he did, but limited and with no sense of the personal, unfortunately. However, the surprise support from Boothby Graffoe delivered with aplomb, mixing puns with the personal and a gentle guitar accompaniment from the man himself. Theatre Royal, 14 September ✌✌✌

The Luchagors + Los Mendozas + Spookey All-girl Japanese popsters Spookey opened, in nice enough, if ultimately forgettable fashion. Local quasi-Mexican wrestling mentalists Los Mendozas were sporadically great: when they actually played, it was fantastically heavy hardcore, though too much time spent clowning, till the joke isn’t funny anymore. Headlining was an actual former wrestler, ex WWE superstar, Amy Dumas, and her band, The Luchagors. Early sound problems frustrated, but once sorted it was clear the sound wasn’t as much a problem as the plodding, radio punk numbers which left the listener underwhelmed. Full credit to the Hobgoblin for bringing worldwide punk to Brighton. Usually it’s pretty reliable, though tonight something was missing. The Hobgoblin, 16 September ✌✌ Nick Aldwinckle
Van Morrison Despite the fuss about ticket prices (admittedly £105, even for the best seats is steep) and the ban on alcohol at the venue, this was Van Morrison on form. OK, you could set your watch by the exact 90 minutes you get, but the guy’s a legend, and this was a largely brilliant set. A faithful, and staggeringly fresh-sounding ‘The Way Young Lovers Do’ showcased the musicians and Morrison’s still emotionally powerful voice. A Van Morrison set is never predictable and given his famed reluctance to performing his more trancendental music, it was a rare treat to hear ‘When The Healing Has Begun’ live.

A laughing matter Victoria Nangle talks to ‘the mindreader who doesn’t read minds’ and rising star Chris Cox about his appeal and footrests Radio 1’s official magician, possibly the youngest performer at the Magner’s Paramount Comedy Festival to have his own show at only 24, and a massive fan of Brighton from his home in Horsham. Chris Cox is all these, but most of all he’s a really, really lovely guy. Even with man flu. Initially he misses my call, but eventually communications are established. “Sorry, I’ve just got a new phone and I hit the wrong button. I do apologise. I’ve yet to quite adapt to it.” I tell him his message sounds cheerful though. “I’m glad it sounds cheerful. I’ve got man flu on the go so I’m not at my best, but I’ll try. Oh no, the struggles of man flu,” he mugs.

“I think it’s partly because I look twelve. I like to think I’ve got a bit of geek chic going on” So let’s start at the beginning. “I started when I was six,” he explains. “I did! I got a magic kit when I was six. I’ve always been interested in magic. While I was at school and studying psychology I realised I could mix that with magic and it looked like I could read minds. Then I focused on it a lot at uni. And now… This year was my second full Edinburgh.” His first Edinburgh festival show was funded by his student loan. “It was the biggest risk I took and it paid off.” His first shows were for his family at Christmases. “My grandparents are just about to move house and they’re getting rid of stuff and they’ve given me a footrest. You know, one of those pouffe things that you have. Because I used to use it. I would stand on it and it would be my stage, and my sister would be my magical assistant and I’d do little tricks at Christmas and stuff.” His audience is far wider now though: old, young and in between. “You know what,” he ponders. “I think it’s partly because I look twelve. I like to think I’ve got a bit of geek chic going on. At heart I’m a bit of a geek and at the very best I’m funny looking. “I haven’t set out to target anyone. All I’ve set out to do is play and amuse and amaze people, and the fact that they’re there is great.” So is his modesty. With telly deals calling after a successful Edinburgh Festival and his childhood dream of a tour coming true, it’s all coming up roses for Chris. Chris Cox – Control Freak The Pavilion Theatre, Brighton, Friday 17 October. Tickets £12/10.

Earlier this year, Roy Hutchins and Tony Haase (aka Roy & Tony's Club) performed a season of six fortnightly comedy theatre music shows at the Open House, offering completely new material each time. The Latest's very own critic Candy McNamara wrote: “A properly intimate cosy club... with Hutchins as the pedantic slightly uptight foil to Haase’s exuberantly manic flights of fancy, in a sort of updated Pete and Pete, where they grow up and become self aware. Life, the universe and general trivia are examined and reformed into a sort of warped logic. They have the ability to create something which, while seemingly ad-libbed, deposits you at the end realising you have experienced something finely honed and structured, as well as original. Catch them while you can.” ‘Roy & Tony’s Club’ has now moved onto The Latest Music Bar (formerly the Joogleberry) for a new season, the first of which starts on Friday 3 October, and thereafter the first Friday of every month. Roy and Tony took time out of their busy schedule to talk to me on the phone, but mostly because I was too busy to leave the office. So, new shows again with new material each time? Why do a completely new show each time? Tony: The nature of the shows has evolved show by show, and is still evolving. Plus, the audience like to come back and see new material. Roy: It started out as improvised double act but has now turned more into complete stories, comedy theatre plays with music. Tony: : We like Morecambe and Wise, and Hope and Crosby movies. As well as Samuel Beckett plays. So now it's more Morecombe and Wise and Hope and Crosby and Samuel and Beckett. Is there a topical nature to the writing? Tony: Certainly a seasonal nature. This time we’re looking back at the glorious summer music festivals. Roy: While also looking forward to the period of pagan autumnal celebrations. Which is why we'll be staging ‘Roy & Tonestock’ live on stage. Tony: It’s topical too. In the first show we discover that Roy’s imaginary friend from childhood has been working at Lehman Brothers. Roy: Another purpose of the club is so people can meet and catch up with friends in a convivial atmosphere. Tony: Just going out and meeting real people in real places. Roy: But Jean Paul Sartre did say, ‘Hell is other people’, didn’t he? But hell is also watching another ’100 Best Of Shows’ at home on a Friday night, isn’t it? Roy: So if you fancy a great night out, pop along. Tony: The bar is open late afterwards. The Latest Music Bar, 14–17 Manchester Street, Friday 3 October Doors open 7pm, show 8pm £10 (£20 with a two course meal) Conc £8.

Dir: Baz Luhrmann The most overblown musical of the last ten years flaunts its wares in aid of charity for one night only. Screened in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support the film follows Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor as they fall in and out of love in Paris in 1900. With a heady mix of modern pop songs at their disposal, the cast camp it up big time in an epic tale of love, loss, and friendship. With a prescreening burlesque show and late night drinks and entertainment this is sure to be a full on midnight knees up. Showing at Duke of York’s Craig Driver

Director: Various The comic phenomenon that is the ‘Secret Policeman’s Ball’ returns with over three hours of live comedy and stand up. With profits going to Amnesty International and organised in order to raise awareness of human rights worldwide, the event, last put on in 2006, has featured everyone from Rowan Atkinson and Noel Fielding to Russell Brand and Sarah Silverman. Thanks to the Duke of York’s, the event is putting on a big screen showing with all proceeds going to Amnesty. Laughter is guaranteed. Showing at Duke of York’s
Dir: Robert B. Weide Adapted from Toby Young’s shameless book/memoir/confessional, this haphazard film is a quirky little mess. Simon Pegg – seemingly on a fervent mission to ruin his own career – stars as a young British journalist who moves to New York to pursue his career with predictably comic fishout-of-water results. Starring alongside Pegg are an array of Hollywood stars such as Kirsten Dunst, Jeff Bridges, Danny Huston and Gillian Anderson. The title could be an epitaph for Pegg and this Hollywood effort. Showing at Odeon and Cineworld
Linha De Passe (15)
Dir: Daniela Thomas/Walter Salles After directing the excellent The Motorcycle Diaries, Salles returns with this tale of four Brazilian brothers fighting to survive and follow their dreams. Nominated for the Golden Palm at Cannes this broad stroke of a film weaves a number of intricate and hard hitting narratives together. Focusing on similar material to Salles’ 1998 film Central Station the film delves into the poorer suburbs of Sao Paulo. Thomas and Salles have crafted a strong film, with good intentions if not slightly pushy morals. Showing at Duke of York’s
Taken (15) Dir: Pierre Morel With a script by French maverick Luc Besson and helmed by the director of photography on Transporter 2 this was never going to be subtle. Liam Neeson – usually so dependable and likeable – takes the lead as a former spy who must use all his old skills in order to hunt down his daughter’s kidnappers. Co-starring Famke Janssen and Australian star Holly Valance, this is a shameless action adventure that feels tired and flabby where it should be lean and mean. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon Craig Driver
FILM How is the Icelandic film industry? It’s small and vibrant. We have maybe five films a year but with a population of 300,000 that’s not too bad and some make it to the international scene. This one will hopefully go all over the world, it’s going to the United States, it opens in France at the same time. Jar City was a huge success in Iceland, it’s the biggest box office hit of all time. It’s bigger than Titanic. Which says a lot about how twisted the nation is. What were the elements of the book that you have arrested? It was the contrast between the countryside, the old Iceland in some way and the new technologies. It was also the chance to discover the old secrets, those of the older generation. And, of course, the drama of these two fathers who lost their daughters. The human element of intrigue was decisive. I wanted to create a double look, a look inwards and outward.
City of ice Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur talks to Latest 7 about his new film Jar City It’s taken a couple of years for Jar City to reach the international stage. Is it strange to be talking about a film so long after the event? You have to wind back and get into it, and remember – but you also get a wider perspective, which is good. You go a little bit away from it, and see it from a distance. I’ve not watched it for a while but I remember it, it’s there. It has a little shelf in my brain. What was it about Arnaldur Indridason’s novel Myrin that made you want to adapt it for the screen? What I loved was that it was the first time I’d read a novel that had a thriller premise that could work in Iceland. Most of the time thrillers don’t fit Iceland, which is weird because geographically it’s such a film noir country, it has all the elements. But the lack of crime, doesn’t make it a good environment for a thriller.
As well as the genetics issue, you also have the fascinating parallel of the investigating policeman and his relationship with his daughter. Yes, it’s more about the characters, it’s more of a drama. Everyone knows about DNA and fingerprints, so we don’t have to show that, that’s in the background, and we can stay more on the characters. Story lies in character, it doesn’t lie in technology. It’s more about how the technology affects people, how somebody’s secret can come out. This structure of the storylines, how they come together – that is different to the novel. I wanted to push that a little bit, to push the limits of the genre. I don’t want to give too much away, but I’ve never seen it done this way, where you assume the stories are happening simultaneously but actually they’re taking place at different times. That’s part of the riddle.
Also showing… the sequel to his stunning super-hero reboot Batman Begins with Heath Ledger creeping out Christian Bale, in the role he’ll be remembered for as none other than Batman’s arch-nemesis The Joker. A stellar cast bolsters proceedings with Michael Caine as butler Alfred, Aaron Eckhart as conflicted D.A Harvey Dent, Gary Oldman as Chief Gordon and Maggie Gyllenhaal as love interest Rachel Dawes. Ledger’s tipped for a posthumous Oscar for his haunting Joker, so expect queues around the block – even now – for this classy comic-book adaptation. Showing at Worthing
How to Lose Friends and Alienate People – Special singles event (TBC) Dir: Robert B. Weide Interesting concept, this: a singles dating event where you’re partnered with someone of similar movie preferences to watch the preview of a new release. This is followed by an after-party where you can text-flirt with anyone who catches your eye for a month afterwards without giving out your mobile number. Ticket price includes the film, first free drink and introduction to your date! Seemingly quite an unromantic first feature though, with this comedy starring Simon Pegg as highly unpopular Brit writer Toby Young trying to make it in polite New York circles. Directed by Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Robert B Weide, this should make for a potentially hilariously awkward first date. Odeon/Heist Bar, Thursday 2 October
Mamma Mia! (PG) Dir: Phyllida Lloyd A young woman searches for her real father whilst singing along to ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Mamma Mia’ and other hits by Swedish super-troopers Abba. Meryl Streep plays the kookie mum with Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård and Pierce Brosnan as the potential dads. The long-running and everpopular stage musical finally makes its way onto the big screen. Showing at Cineworld, Odeon & Worthing
Pineapple Express (15) Dir: David Gordon Green Knocked Up and Superbad star Seth Rogen continues his ascent to the big screen geek hero above all others in this stoner-action-buddycomedy. Rogen plays waster Dale with Spiderman brooder James Franco as his dealer Saul, admirably playing against type in madcap fashion. When Dale witnesses a murder, he and Saul go on the run, providing an interesting spin on the action genre all the way. Showing at Odeon
A quick look at what’s on this week Death Race (15) Dir: Paul W.S Anderson Based on Roger Corman’s 70s cult exploitation classic Deathrace 2000, the 2008 version is something of a labour of love for that overgrown teenager of the cinema, Paul W.S Anderson, director of Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil and Event Horizon. In between directing video game adaptations, he’s been developing this dystopian actioner for years and it remains to be seen whether it’s been worth the effort. Lunkhead for hire Jason Statham plays a convict in the familiar near future. Forced to take part in the brutal competition Deathrace, where the contenders race and, erm, kill each other, along with innocent bystanders, Statham fights for his life and TV ratings. This might just work if it retains any of the original’s black comedy and tongue-in-cheek action. Showing at Odeon The Dark Knight (12A) Dir: Christopher Nolan The only real contender for Indy’s crown of most anticipated blockbuster this year is, of course, the return of Mr Bruce Wayne, A.K.A Batman. Christopher Nolan returns to helm
You take a lot back on violence, it transpires only in a few scenes but never outpouring of unnecessary ... The excessive violence affects me most deeply in the world! All these effects, as well as sound effects and pyrotechnic special effects, all these effects that have been used for twenty years, have made violence artificial and irrelevant. When I show violence, it is always brief and not very attractive. Violence is something very irretrievable - it is an existentialist concept. This is something concrete and unpleasant. When you use it you must also demonstrate the consequences. You can not just glorify this kind of thing - you must take responsibility.
RocknRolla (15) Dir: Guy Ritchie The one time hot young property of Brit cinema has weathered a tide of criticism following his marriage to Madge and the massive flops Swept Away and Revolver, so Guy Ritchie’s got a lot to prove with this return. Back on familiar Lock, Stock cockney underworld territory, Ritchie once again gathers a decent ensemble cast including Scots beefcake Gerard Butler, an almost unrecognisable Tom Wilkinson and The Wire’s Idris Elba in this Nuts-friendly crime caper. Showing at Odeon and Cineworld Wall*E (U) Dir: Andrew Stanton Pixar hit paydirt again with this lovingly rendered cross between 70s eco-sci-fi Silent Running and E.T: The Extra-Terrestrial. The CGI animation giants could have easily opted for another re-run of the cutesy Toy Story formula, but instead go for this admittedly still cutesy, but ultimately meditative love story. Ben Burtt voices the titular cleaning robot (though there’s barely a word) charged with sorting out a polluted Earth after humanity’s jumped ship. Showing at Worthing

This week I bring you The Sin Eater’s Last Confessions by Ross Heaven, with a coyly positioned subtitle: ‘Lost Traditions of Celtic Shamanism’. Jesus! Feeling like Gnasher out of The Beano, I’m ready to have a go at this codswallop. Not badly written codswallop by the way. Plausible is Mr Heaven. Why he’s decided to write a Carlos Castaneda-style fantasy is beyond me, unless he genuinely believes in the baloney he writes about. Try fiction, Mr Ross Heaven Heaven, since most of what you write appears to be fictitious anyway. Castaneda was ultimately disclosed as a fake when someone had the bright idea of comparing The Teachings of Don Juan with Castenada’s library stack requests at the University of California. I suspect we could trace Heaven’s ‘real life’ encounters with his sin eater if we could track his website visits in his browser history. Certainly most of the references Heaven quotes in his quasi-treatise are to websites current at March 2008. There’s a new type of writing emerging that could be defined as ‘wikid’. It consists of trawling the internet for information about a given subject and compiling it into a narrative with minimal reference and blurred provenance. This is meretricious cultural pollution of the worst kind. What Heaven claims to be doing – putting us in touch with nature, taking us to the root of ourselves, accessing the wisdom of ancient cultures – has the opposite effect. We are lulled into a delirium of softfocus fact cooked up with a mess of myth and legend. Confessions is a cross between a personal apologia, The White Goddess (the notorious piece of mythical twaddle by poet Robert Graves) and a self-help manual about getting rid of ‘sin’. (There’s a sin eater’s workbook, seriously!) Sin eating was a Herefordshire funeral custom reported by diarist John Aubrey in Remaines of Gentilisme and Judaisme (1686-87). A human scapegoat took upon himself all the ‘Sinnes of the Defunct’ – a skill Heaven seems to have inherited in his writing – and ‘freed him (or her) from walking after they were dead’ (Oxford Dictionary of Folklore 2001). It’s fun and tantalising. We’re in the realm of zombies. We’re in popular culture’s Twilight Zone, where apparently grown-up human beings believe all kinds of claptrap. Of course we all have claptrap tucked away between our ears somewhere and ‘There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy’, as Hamlet says. But what makes Heaven’s book an exercise is cynicism is the way it is so obviously aimed at the American market for Body, Mind, Spirit/Spirituality and all things Celtic. One telling error shows how the book is a trap for the unwary. In an afterword, designed to add credibility to Heaven’s creaky story, ‘journalist’ Tania Ahsan accompanies Ross Heaven on a trip back to the village where he met the sin eater of his childhood. They travel from ‘Malvern, Wales’. A quick look at a map will remind you that Malvern is in England.

Gold rush Aussie electro-pop king Sam Sparro spoke to Nick Aldwinckle One of the breakout stars of this year’s Great Escape Festival was an Antipodean electro-pop singer-songwriter going by the name of Sam Sparro. In the space of a few months, the 25 year old artist of mixed Australian/Maltese heritage, born in Sydney and raised in LA, has gone from promising newcomer to one of 2008’s biggest pop performers, with his massive hit, ‘Black and Gold’ one of the year’s most popular songs and eponymous debut album similarly successful. He’s even been nominated for five awards at Australia’s equivalent to The Grammys, The Arias, including Best Male Artist and Single of the Year. Openly gay and lyrically intelligent, incorporating gospel, Motown and funk influences into his fashionable eighties template, Sparro continues the fine tradition of unpretentious pop with a serious underbelly beneath its shiny veneer. Latest 7 caught up with him ahead of his UK tour.
You used to sing in a touring gospel group. Would you ever do that again? No-one’s asked me that before! Yeah, why not? I have no plans to do so, but I wouldn’t say no. I really enjoyed doing it growing up. Maybe we should do it at the Camden Underworld! You’ve performed live with Mark Ronson and he’s a fan. Would you record with him? I’d definitely do that, I think. I think we both would probably be up for it and it’d be cool. It wouldn’t sound like anything I’ve done before and I think it’d be the same for Mark. We’d just try and do something brand new. I know he likes hip-hop and I’m a big hip-hop fan as well, so maybe we could do something along those lines. There’s a lot of older sounding music on the album. Do you like modern music? Music as a medium of communication has got a lot more prominent and become more commercialised. You find it hard to go into a shop and buy a record that’s actually about anything nowadays. There’s a lot of stuff like The X Factor and all that. There’s no equivalent to the likes of Marvin Gaye.
How are you coping with new-found success? It’s great. This is what I’ve worked for most of my life, so it’s good to see it all paying off now. People always ask me if I expected to be this successful and I did expect it, otherwise I wouldn’t have set out to do what I’ve done. Would you have been as successful had you remained in Australia? Probably not, no. I would be a different person if I had. I would have had different experiences and my music would have been different. The music is the whole sum of my life experience. I’ve done a lot of travelling so that’s affected it.

Do you think it’s easier to be gay in the industry nowadays? No. It’s not really something I’ve ever thought about. I’ve just always been very real and very honest. It’s too much of a pain in the arse to lie or try to cover stuff up. It’s too much effort. With more people being open, it’s about getting people to feel more comfortable with who they are and not having to feel like the weirdo growing up. Sam Sparro, Friday 3 October, Corn Exchange

MUSIC British Sea Power
British Sea Power They just missed out on the Mercury Music Prize, but their stock continues to rise and rise. A good example of a band that improves with time – their most recent album Do You Like Rock Music? is their best yet, and their particularly nutty fans just can’t get enough. Thursday 2 October, Corn Exchange JH Lykke Li The last time this idiosyncratic Swedish singer-songwriter played Brighton, it was at the tiny Albert upstairs, so it says a lot about her growing popularity she’s now headlining the comparatively cavernous Concorde. Quality electro-pop with indie sensibility. Thursday 2 October, Concorde 2 JH Tricky Heavily stoned dude from Knowle West in Bristol, and one-time collaborator with Massive Attack and Martina Topley-Bird, Adrian Thaws made some of the most deliciously paranoid dubbed out trip hop known to man, but has slipped quietly from the radar recently. He’s back in action with a new album. Friday 3 October, De La Warr Pavilion JH Team Waterpolo + Defend Moscow These Preston indie-pop types evoke a strange feeling of eighties teen movie nostalgia mixed with laddish nineties brit-pop singalongs and catchy Postal Service electro beats. Solid support from fellow dance-loving indie kids hailing from London, Paris and Bergen. Friday 3 October, Audio JH Ruby Howl San Francisco alt-folk trio come to the intimate surroundings of this free-thinking art gallery with their lush and dreamy sound via handmade banjos, parlour guitars and haunting vocals. The Robot Heart provide support. Friday 3 October, Fairtrade Gallery JH
Amanda Palmer Lead singer and composer of punk cabaret duo the Dresden Dolls, Amanda Palmer is going solo – her debut album features and is produced by Ben Folds. Saturday 4 October, Concorde 2 JH Tragic Roundabout + Los Albertos + Cordelia Fellowes Three of the best from Brighton; from the punk-folk-klezmer of the Tragics, to the party animal ska-funk of the Albertos to the finely crafted and often witty bluesy folk tales of Cordelia Fellowes, this gig is in aid of Clock Tower Sanctuary homeless day centre. Sunday 5 October, Hectors JH Reverend and the Makers Bigmouth strikes in Brighton again as the Reverend leads his swaggering indie rockers back to the seaside for this gig at Digital’s popular Stone Love indie night. Proper Sheffield attitude and some dance/rock crossover posturing. Friday 3 October, Digital NA Friendly Fires Currently on the ascent, this London trio will soon be packing venues much bigger than Audio, so catch ‘em while they’re hot. Their curious mix of The Rapture-style indie-funk dance and My Bloody Valentine atmospheric shoegaze sometimes works brilliantly. Monday 6 October, Audio NA The Melvins King Buzzo and friends are rock legends, having been a massive influence on grunge and adored by critics and bands alike. Check out this preview for what to expect when they curate All Tomorrow’s Parties’ Nightmare Before Christmas December event Monday 6 October, Concorde 2 NA

MUSIC REVIEWS A weekly review of local and national releases This is the first Metallica album I’ve heard in its entirety, curious as to how they have become one of the most successful bands on planet Earth. The album, Death Magnetic, is not surprising, all about death and disaffection. And while they sing about it, they might just be thinking about their immense and jealously protected wealth. One of life’s abominations, this record surely deserves the quicksands of obliteration. AVOID! If there was any musical justice left in the world then Rose Hill Drive would be enjoying something of the success of the aforementioned ‘band’. The brothers Sproule are a no-nonsense heads-down rock band, their melodic outpourings influenced by Nirvana, Hendrix and Southern rock. They’ve come up organically and from the grassroots, and their new album Moon is the New Earth is packed with filthy rock grooves and riffs from beginning to end. Underground sensations Bromheads Jacket continue to evade the radar of anointed indie respectability with the follow-up to their debut album Dits From the Commuter belt. This time around they’ve discovered the dirty scuzz of early Iggy and the Stooges, and added that to their unfeasibly large organ sounds and general psycho-garage garbage. Topped off with silly, infantile lyrics, they are really a quite awful, dumb-ass band. The much loved Jeremy Warmsley is releasing his second album in the form of How We Became, another superb collection of melodic and sophisticated piano-led indie pop that displays the influences of Rufus Wainwright, Robert Wyatt and John Lennon within its sparkling songs. At first glance, when you hear the word ‘punk’ and look at Brooklyn’s Vivian Girls, there’s the inevitable fear that we have another (unwanted) helping of fellow girl-group The Donnas. Luckily, their self-titled debut album is a much classier affair, drawing on new wave influences and brilliantly poppy Ramones songwriting prowess, whilst keeping a raw, relatively un-produced sound all their own. Hardly capable of being any more different to the Vivian Girls is Lustmord, one of the founding fathers of industrial metal. Having worked with Throbbing Gristle, SPK and Coil over the years. Lustmord has roped in Tool’s Adam Jones, Isis’ Aaron Turner and Buzz Osborne from The Melvins for latest album, [OTHER]. A prolific sound designer for film and video games, his trademark ambient, almost intangible noise more than achieves its goal: creating a deep, layered and subtly menacing sonic terrain. A quiet triumph. Finally, it’s time for a classic re-issue, and New Order’s magnum opus, Technique. First released in 1989, this saw a culmination of the post-Joy Division Hook, Sumner and Morris colliding splendidly with the acid house sound coming out of the continent to make a gloriously accessible fusion of dance and indie rock. Slightly dated sounding (but distinct because of this), the Madchester legends’ songwriting was never again as strong as on Technique.

Brighton’s only weekly gay guide
Will Harris acts with righteous anger but without, sadly, the effect he hoped for
All photographs: Wild Fruit/chrisjepson.com
There are plenty of things in this world that hack me off: war; the American electoral system; people with dead relatives saying, “It‘s what he/she would have wanted“ (when it’s painfully obvious he/she would’ve preferred to be soaking up the sun in the Seychelles, not heading feet first into the furnace). But way up there on my list of pet hates are those celebrities who barricade themselves in the closet, afraid that being perceived as gay will tarnish their star. There’s this singer, whose name I’ve been advised not to mention as I can’t afford the legal fees (having blown it all on cheap boys and expensive boots), who apparently, back in the day, was quite a face on the Soho scene until no sooner had he scored his first number one then he dumped all his former friends like so many number twos. From that day on there’s been such speculation over this chap’s sexuality you’d think it would be easier for him to bite the bent bullet. Instead he maintains a strict vow of silence, refusing to comment on his personal life on the grounds it could damage his fledgling pop career.
“And with that, I was out of there. Actually, to be fair I didn’t have much choice in the matter“

Anyway, all this transparent denial must have annoyed me more than I thought, as I proved in spectacular fashion when recently invited to the new club night of Sophie Ellis-Bextor and her husband ‘that bloke from The Feeling’. Now, I don’t cope well with celebrities at the best of times (just ask my fellow columnist Jo Brooks, who once introduced me to Jude Law and promptly had to stop me from being sick), but on this occasion I truly surpassed myself. It was getting towards the end of the night, when I looked across and – much to my surprise – spotted ’that bloke from The Feeling’ locked in a passionate embrace with another man. Up in the DJ booth, Sophie E-B was searching through her records, apparently unconcerned that her husband was doing his feeling elsewhere. This situation demanded action, and one too many Sambucas reassured me I was just the man to provide it. “You!” I said, marching up to him. “Yes, you! I just want to say I totally disagree with what you’re doing. You could be such a positive role model and instead you’re living a lie.” And with that, I was out of there. Actually, to be fair I didn’t have much choice in the matter. Imagine my surprise the next day when, flicking through the paper, I came across a photo of Sophie Ellis-Bextor and her husband, a man who – strangely – I didn’t recognise at all. From there, a simple process of deduction led me to realise I’d actually approached ‘that other bloke from The Feeling’, the openly gay Dan Gillespie, and berated him for kissing his boyfriend in public. In future, much like that singer who refuses to come out, I’m keeping my mouth firmly closed. The alternative could very well be murder on the dancefloor.

The Core ★✩✩✩✩
WEDNESDAY 1 Half Past Dead ★✩✩✩✩
Thursdays 10pm, ITV 2 I like Billie Piper (I wish she would wash her hair more) but in general she doesn’t completely irritate me. But for some reason I just can’t see her as a, well, prostitute. And that is why I dislike this programme. Not because it is about a prostitute, but mainly because everyone avoids describing it as such! I have no idea why it is okay to be a ‘call girl’ but not a prostitute. I am not saying I agree with prostitution, I don’t really feel anything towards the subject – it is after all one of the oldest professions going and nothing will ever stop it. But is it really correct to turn what was a best(ish) seller into a series just so a load of men can see Billy Piper’s bum? (And what’s worse is that the second series was filmed while Billy Piper was pregnant – so urgh for starters, and secondly it’s not even her you see prancing about in underwear or less!) I can understand why it is popular, and for all intents and purposes I would probably enjoy it. But I would rather not. I cannot fully explain why but something about it just makes me feel odd. (Although it appears to have spurred on a whole new variety of authors – all of whom have been or are call girls.) I have asked a couple of people who have watched this and they can’t really decide what they think about it and I can’t either. I find that shows like this overglamorise situations. This second series is supposed to be more about the life outside of the call girl aspect. Will she be able to hide her secret from her new boyfriend? I am pleased they are making the second series less sex-orientated because I have always wanted to know what it is like for a call girl to do regular things like go to the supermarket and visit her parents (yawn). If this is supposed to be about someone who is slightly less than ashamed of her career choice then it wouldn’t be such a big secret. On the one hand ITV are making a fast-paced racy series about a call girl about town – you work the hours you want get paid quite highly – and on the other hand they are saying that it should be something you don’t tell anyone you do; it is something to be ashamed of. But the one true bonus of the job is that you can be incredibly sarcastic and derogatory to anyone who has a normal life! I know it is not ITV making the full decision about this. It was adapted from a book. I can’t fully explain why I don’t like this programme. But it seems no one else can either! 38 latest 7
Movies on the box this week
★★★★★ (1998, Sky Movies Indie, 10pm. Dir Joel Coen) Fabuloso Coen brothers’ film that tells the tale of mistaken identity, The Dude, a rug and a kidnapping. Involving the not small talents of Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi and a cracking soundtrack, this comedic thriller is a great reason to stay in on a Tuesday.
The Secret Diary of a Call Girl
30 Sept – 6 Oct
(2002, Five, 9pm. Dir Don Michael Paul) When a director and writer can’t make up what first name he has and completely forgoes a surname and then decides to cast Steven Segal as his star, hopes for the movie will not be high. Half Past Dead lives up to expectations. The story of a man who goes undercover in a prison to find out who killed his wife, is skimmed with plenty of posturing and asskicking, accounted for on the part of Mr Segal making up the remainder of the film.
THURSDAY 2 The Cassandra Crossing
★★★✩✩ (1977, Channel 4, 1.05pm. Dir George P. Cosmatos) A star-studded disaster movie on a train, involving Richard Harris and Sophia Loren, battling against the release of a deadly disease on the speeding vessel. Back on steady land Burt Lancaster and Martin Sheen try a bit of disaster control – like that’ll help if they turn up before the halfway point. Classic.
(2003, Channel 4, 9pm. Dir Jon Amiel) Disaster thriller, in more ways than one. Experiments by the US Government play havoc with the Earth’s core. A group of scientists must journey to the centre of the Earth to save the human race from destruction. Is it Christmas? Then why is this turkey getting served up?
SUNDAY 5 Secretary ★★★★✩ (2002, Channel 4, 10.35pm. Dir Steven Shainberg) Starring James Spader, Maggie Gyllenhaal. Erotic black comedy that puts a whole new meaning to a bit of slap and tickle at work. A masochistic woman answers a job advert placed by a lawyer. The work is not a problem, but her boss has a very unusual approach to discipline.
The Birds ★★★★✩ (1963, Sky Movies Classics, 9pm. Dir Alfred Hitchcock) When a San Francisco playgirl pursues a potential boyfriend to a small Northern California town, things slowly take a turn for the bizarre when birds of all kinds suddenly begin to attack people, in increasing numbers, and with increasing viciousness. Perfect example of why Hitchcock is ‘The Master of Suspense’.
MONDAY 6 Lucky Number Slevin ★★★★✩ (2006, Channel 4, 10pm. Dir Paul McGuigan) Starring Josh Hartnett. Violent thriller. The eponymous Slevin is mistaken for the friend with whom he is staying, who owes large debts to two rival mob bosses who want him to work off his debts as an assassin. With police on their trail and a mysterious and cold-blooded overlord seemingly pulling the strings, a deadly game of cat-and-mouse ensues. Witty, fast and stylishly interesting.
FRIDAY 3 The Devil’s Advocate ★★★✩✩ (1997, BBC1, 11.40pm. Dir Taylor Hackford) Keanu Reeves is a hot shot lawyer with a beautiful wife to boot and the offer of a fabulous mega powerful job. So far, The Firm. Then he finds out his employer is the Devil himself, played with aplomb by Al Pacino, and his local gym membership has nothing compared to the legal loops tying him in to this organisation.
Half Past Dead, Wednesday 9pm
tuesday 30 Losing It: Griff Rhys Jones On Anger BBC2, 9pm The second and final part in Mr Jones’ investigation into his own anger and that of others in society. First he tries Buddhist meditation in Scotland, then boxing at a gym in Sheffield, until finally he hops across the pond to LA and to the man who invented Anger Management. No grr.
Dawn Porter: Free Lover Channel 4, 10pm Dawn has investigated a lot from her spiritual home of BBC3, but here she is on the big boys’ channel and she’s investigating polygamy. This is the first stop in her global travels investigating how love works and she’s visiting California and Germany to see how this ‘many partners’ thing works in practise. Duvet hogging.
London To Brighton In 4 Minutes BBC4, 9.55pm Who says it has to take fifty minutes? Certainly not the BBC, who rather hypnotically have filmed the entire train journey many take each day, from the front of the train. Sped up and taking us into a parallel universe of supertrains and European speed through British countryside.
