If you were Prime Minister, where would you eat out in Brighton? When Tony Blair ruled the country he and his family dined at Donatello, one of the city‘s best known restaurants. Donatello, which is celebrating its 20th birthday, has seen lots of famous guests over the years – find out who else has eaten there on page 11. The London to Brighton bike ride is coming up again in June and our columnist Alison Swann has bravely volunteered to have a go. Alison has some very powerful personal reasons for attempting the course. Find out more in her column (p8). Meanwhile, on the same page Will has a trial of his own – attempting to stay the night in a squat without getting eaten by a giant rat. Whether you think it‘s funny or outrageous, with all the billboards round Brighton and Hove you can‘t ignore the trashy movie Lesbian Vampire Killers which comes out this week. In the film section, actor Mathew Horne explains why he thinks it is a feminist movie (p23). Talking of strong women, it‘s Mother‘s Day this Sunday. If you haven’t bought her anything yet, don’t worry, we have the perfect solution – how about a facial or a selection of celebrity skincare products from Beautique Brighton? (p18) The big news in the Brighton arts scene this last week has been that Komedia is in financial trouble (p12). Don’t forget that the venue is still open for business and the owners are hoping it will remain so. In fact, The Rumble Strips are playing there next week – music editor Jeff Hemmings had a chat with leader singer Charlie (p26). Our big interview this week is with Joan Bakewell, the broadcaster and now author. She spoke to Ralph Miller about freedom of speech and why she became a novelist in her 70s (p9). In stage, Andrew talks to Liz Aggiss, the “Vivienne Westwood of the dance film world” about her new show (p21), while in his books column John O’Donoghue looks forward to a gig by John Cooper Clarke, the poet who toured with The Fall (p25). City council leader Mary Mears is angry at the treatment given to returning troops in Luton last week – see her column (p12) for how she hopes Brighton and Hove will celebrate the armed forces this summer. In Latest Gay, see pictures from national Student Pride and read about how Ghetto, one of the newest venues on the scene, is shaking up the week to offer creative and cheap as chips nights out (p30).

Wired for success The Wired Sussex Digital Media Jobs and Skills Fair was held at the Corn Exchange. This was a great opportunity for people interested in digital media to meet with companies and digital media course providers and get invaluable, independent careers advice, plus hear from a variety of speakers over the course of the day on subjects like how to get your first job in digital media, what it’s like being a freelancer and how to futureproof your skills. Skills sessions ran throughout the day and included speakers such as Mike Nutley, editor of New Media Age. During the afternoon there was also the Brighton Internship Programme Ceremony Awards which is the most successful of its kind in the country and has placed interns with 25 Brighton-based digital media companies for a scheme which started in September 2008. Awards were presented by Phil Jones from Wired Sussex and Adam Bates, head of tourism at Visit Brighton.
SEANN’S WORLD | XWORD 05
Seann Walsh suffers the misfortune of coffee in a cafe, not a café
Café olé? while ago, I suffered the misfortune of having a job interview in Polegate, which, thanks to the corruption of Richard Nixon and the prevalence of a certain tendency in the language of journalism, sounds like a scandal involving a pole. If you don’t know Polegate the place, it's a characterless suburban Legoland sulking somewhere near Eastbourne. It’s the place that you end up in because you ran out of petrol on your way to somewhere worthwhile. The architecture looks as if it's all come out of Ikea flatpacks. Indeed, it is so estranged from imagination, and so small in scale, that to label it as architecture is like labelling Hello! Magazine as literature, or drum and bass as music. I was told in advance by the employer to press the buzzer of a large glass building opposite the station. How city-like it sounded. Leaving the train, I prepared myself for big business. Between a half-hearted attempt at a café and a shop that appeared to sell
nothing but cotton buds and vacuum cleaner attachments, there sat the large glass building. It wasn’t a ‘large glass building’. Only one of those words had any validity: ‘building’. It was legitimately a building, in that it was something that had indeed been built. What they meant by ‘glass building’ was not ‘a building constructed primarily of glass’ but ‘the only building in the area that featured more than two panes of glass’. Language is a slave to relativity. This fact of life was affirmed further by the use of the word ‘large’ in that 66.6 per cent dishonest phrase. Yes, it was large in comparison to the shed-like buildings that surrounded it. Being threestoreys high, it positively dominated the skyline, but so would Peter Crouch if you could convince him to leave Portsmouth, a buzzing metropolis such as it is relative to Polegate. Yes, all things are relative. With half an hour to kill, I decided to risk the café next door to the skyscraper. I
“The ‘e’ of ‘cafe’, on the other hand, means instant coffee and instant disappointment” scanned the décor: Lady Diana memorabilia; a signed photo of Cliff Richard; those odd gingham table cloths, evocative of a tea party in an insane asylum. I ordered a cappuccino. The woman's response: “This is a cafe, not a café.” That acute accent above the ‘e’ says so much about a place. It elongates the word, promoting it from a monosyllable to double that, suggesting a respect for French punctuation, and in turn a certain attitude towards coffee. The ‘é’ of
‘café’ means espresso machines, froth, brown sugar and possibly Wi-Fi. The ‘e’ of ‘cafe’, on the other hand, means instant coffee and instant disappointment. The accent tellingly missing, I had no choice but the latter. She asked if I wanted anything to eat. “I’ll have a sandwich. What’s the vegetarian option?” I asked despite being a carnivore and only out of impudence. She replied: “The LT.” I quickly ate the food, and then attempted to wash away the terrible taste with the coffee. Unfortunately, I then had to wash away the terrible taste of that with some water I’d bought from a newsagent. I was sick of Polegate. So sick, in fact, that I didn’t attend the interview. I went straight to the station, and caught the first train back to Brighton, where the cafés have two syllables.

DEFINITELY DANI 07
Dani arah J Symonds is probably best known for being the mistress of Jeffrey Archer. She has now written a book, Pillow Talk, a handbook for mistresses, in which she basically points out that the mistress is in no way in the wrong for being part of the affair and if anyone is at fault it is the wife. Short of picking up my laptop and throwing it on the floor in a rage there is no way of pointing out just how angry that made me. To her credit Sarah points out that sometimes the married man will lie about it, not wear a ring, say he is single. But a majority of men have an affair with someone they know, a work colleague etc, so that little gem doesn’t wash. In my mind, it takes two to tango. And yes if you are the mistress, but you didn’t know you were the mistress, you have every right to be as hurt as the wife or partner. But, if you are a mistress and you know the man
Dani says mistresses should be honest, and wonders why people are ringing 999?
is married or has a partner then you are knowingly playing a part in breaking up a relationship and potentially a family. Don’t get me wrong, the husband is the main problem in all this, but the mistress is his accomplice. In a TV interview Sarah went head-to-head with a woman whose husband had an affair while she was pregnant. He told her he was having the affair a couple of days after their first child was born. Sarah told the woman that the reason the man had an affair was because she (the wife) was not giving her husband everything he needed. If I was to become pregnant, I would expect my husband to be there for me, not me have to pander, eight months pregnant, to his every whim. I have always said that I didn’t want children because I didn’t want to be a single mum. This just adds more fuel to the fire. How dare she tell this woman that she was the reason the husband had an affair. The
Call me? Apparently a woman in Florida called 911 when her local McDonalds ran out of chicken nuggets. It turns out that in Britain we can’t help ourselves either and call 999 for the daftest reasons, and Christmas time is when the calls escalate (apparently). There have been reports of a priest calling 999 because workers at his local WHSmith would not let him use the shop’s toilet, a woman phoned because she could get through to post her vote for Strictly Come Dancing, and even a man who called because people at a restaurant put mushrooms on his pizza when he had asked them not to. What planet are these people on?
“You are knowingly playing a part in breaking up a relationship”
husband had an affair because he was a selfish tosser (excuse the language). Sarah J Symonds seems to think that when a wife blames the mistress for an affair she thinks the mistress has lured the husband away and forced him to cheat. When in actual fact the wife would blame the mistress for taking part. Sarah had a high profile affair with someone in the public eye. She can’t say he lied about the fact that he was married, what excuse does she have for that? This isn’t to say that only men have affairs, women do too. And the same can be said for them and the people they have affairs with. Do the honourable thing and have one at a time, that will hurt the person you leave, but it will hurt them a lot less than if you have an affair.

08 CITY SPEAK
Alison hat’s going to hurt!” has been the general reception to my announcement that I am going to do the London to Brighton cycle ride. With my usual lack of foresight I signed myself up for the mass wheeling action that will be taking place on Sunday 21 June, without first stopping to find out just how far I was going to have to cycle. 54 miles. Your level of fitness will dictate your response to this. If you scoff and regale me with tales of cycling backwards up Ben Nevis while juggling flaming sticks, then I’m sure I have seen you practising on The Level. If your jaw drops and you gasp, then I am sure I have seen you in the pub – often. Yep, 54 miles, I’ve always considered the journey to be strenuous enough when aided by a seat and a train. But in the spirit of change and a very personal promise, I am going to do it. Several reasons have motivated this decision. First off, I have an almost pathological inability to stick to any form of fitness regime and, with three months to go, suspect that there might be the smallest chance that, with the prospect of public
Alison Swann is getting ready for the ride of her life
Will Harris faces the challenge of spending a night in a squat
hat would your reaction be if one of your closest friends were to tell you their finances had got so out of hand they’d been forced to move into a squat? Shock? Dismay? Or would it be to very nearly drop the phone in excitement before yelling “God, that’s perfect! How are you fixed for Monday?” into the stunned silence at the end of the line? Number four on my list of challenges for 2009 is to spend the night in a squat. This turns out to be more fortuitous for me than for my down-on-her-luck friend Kay, who – having found herself evicted from her flat at short notice and unable to muster the funds for a damage deposit – will be fulfilling challenge number four every night for the foreseeable future. Kay’s new abode is a rambling assemblage of rooms tucked behind an old church. It doesn’t look like a house in the conventional sense; in fact, it doesn’t look like a building with any discernible purpose at all. It’s more like a gathering place for all the rooms that have fallen down the back of the city, and – it strikes me as I ring the doorbell – quite possibly the people that have gone that way too.
“Claiming I was having an asthma attack after being caught puffing away on Tunbridge Wells’ finest B&H didn’t get me very far”
humiliation and personal pain on the horizon, I might actually pull my finger out and get vaguely fit. Secondly, it is a huge part of the Brighton calendar and, for once, I think it might be interesting to actually do the ride, rather than joining it at The Level and pretending to be exhausted in front of the waving crowds – or was that just me? Thirdly, it is for charity and I haven’t dared raise my head up above the charityfundraising parapet since that unfortunate incident at school when I was 13 and got caught smoking during a school sponsored cross-country run. Claiming that I was having an asthma attack after being caught merrily puffing away on Tunbridge Wells’ finest B&H didn’t get me very far. Lastly, and by no means least, my brother always wanted to do it. He died in April 2007, while out cycling up on Devil’s Dyke, when a speeding car hit him. James loved cycling, so I’ll be doing the ride in his memory. There better be a bloody large vodka and tonic waiting for me at Madeira Drive. Here’s my fundraising page: (Go on, be first!) www.justgiving.com/alisonswann2.
“There’s a rat living upstairs. It looks quite relaxed; I don’t think it’s a trouser climber”
“I have to tell you,” warns Kay, ushering me in and sliding several tough-looking bolts shut behind us, “there’s a rat living upstairs at the moment. It always looks quite relaxed though; I don’t think it’s a trouser climber,” she adds hurriedly, noticing the little purple crescents my fingernails have dug into the outsides of my folded arms. So this is what a squat looks like. I have to admit I’m a little underwhelmed. I’d expected gaily-painted wind-chimes, heroin addicts folded over scatter-cushions, or at the very least Irvine Welsh brewing up in the kitchen. What I see instead could be any one of the house-shares I passed through during my time at university, characterised by shabby, mismatched furniture and the pervasive smell of unrefrigerated food. Of the squatters themselves I see no sign. As Kay and I climb a winding flight of stairs to the upper reaches of her domain, I start to feel like a character in an old movie, informed by a gravel-voiced lawyer that to inherit my aunt’s millions I must spend one night alone in the old house at the top of the hill. Would I survive the night? What would I learn from the experience? And what the hell was that snuffling around the opening of my trouser leg?
For comments and chit chat email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ralph Miller spoke to Joan Bakewell about freedom of speech and becoming an author at 75 oan Bakewell has had a diverse career. Famously dubbed the ‘thinking man’s crumpet’ by comedian Frank Muir, much to her annoyance – she has had a successful broadcasting career working on a number of cultural shows. In 2001 she challenged taboos on BBC TV by reading a controversial poem about a Roman soldier’s desires for Jesus. She now has the more austere role as the spokesperson for the elderly and writes as a commentator in the Times. Her first novel the Nice Girls depicts a wartime girl’s school and the relationships that occur after the school adopts a naval ship.
Why did you become a novelist now? Because if I didn’t do it now, it would be too late! I’ve always wanted to and I got distracted by television and my career, but now I don’t do much television, I thought it would be a good chance to have a go at last. I found it very interesting and very difficult. I’m full of admiration for those who do it. Is the novel autobiographical? Only the part about the school. From your book, I get the sense that there was a sort of excitement from that period. There was an excitement because you’re at war. You were very frightened, but also you’re determined to live life because who knows whether you’ll survive. It does give people a sense of exhilaration, however deplorable it is, but I hope I don’t celebrate war. I get the impression that it was an especially liberating period for the female characters. Yes. Wars are liberating for women, because the men go off to fight and the women have to do everything else. So women took jobs they weren’t used to doing.
How has the book been received so far? The people who’ve read it seem to like it. I think a lot of them find it very romantic and some people have said that the ending gave them a lump in their throat, which is very nice. Is there a characteristic to being an author? I think you have to be thoughtful and honest about your emotions. I like people who are honest with themselves, so I do like their company. They’re often well-read, so there’s lots to talk about, I enjoy talking about books. What else are you up to? I’m about to do a series for Radio 4 in the summer. I’m also about to do a Radio 3 series at Easter and then I’m going to think about the next novel. It won’t be set in the present. I don’t understand the present society well enough. So it will probably be set in the past, but not too distant past. What’s it like being a role model? That’s for other people to say. I have a lot of letters and meetings about older people and I find that interesting, I
“You’re determined to live life to the full because who knows whether you’ll survive” write about them, but I don’t think of myself in any of the ways you indicate. I just get on with my life. What do you think of women on TV today? Well it’s amazing, the range is great. You get everyone from Kirsty Wark to Claudia Winkleman.Those two terrors, Trinny and Susannah. You’ve got Delia who’s been and gone, you’ve got the newcomers. The women I admire the most are those out doing current affairs in the refugee camps and the battlegrounds. I’m just delighted to see how well they’re all doing. You became a Dame last year. Is royal recognition important to you? Well, it’s very flattering. You just felt pleased. It’s just nice that somebody noticed.
You came into trouble with the programme Taboo in 2001 what do you think about the state of freedom of speech in the UK today? Well, I think it’s threatened! There are laws that are quite inhibiting for people who want to speak their minds. What has been the highlight of your career? Oh my goodness, I can’t begin to imagine! I don’t really know, it’s been so varied. Do you have any unfulfilled ambitions? To go on writing, not to be cut short, that’s an ambition. There aren’t really any others. Joan Bakewell will discuss All the Good Girls at the Old Market, Hove on Tuesday 17 March at 6.30pm Tickets: £6 including a glass of wine. Call 01273 736222.

I have always believed that a 50/50 division of green and brown compost materials in a compost bin is best. However, my neighbour, who also possesses a bin, maintains that a 65/35 division produces a superior blend of compost, which breaks down more easily and is a more ecologically balanced mix. Which of us is correct? Agnes, Hove

ARIES (MAR 21–APR 20)
CANCER (JUNE 22–JULY 22)
LIBRA (SEP 23–OCT 22)
Aries is a party animal, first to volunteer for karaoke, Truth or Dare and strip Scrabble. At a party Aries will do best at Spin The Bottle, eager for the neck to point their way.
Cancer’s love of their ‘shell’ comes to the fore when playing Hide And Seek. What better opportunity for avoiding any personal or intimate contact. Cancer will want to count to 1,000,000.
For Librans, their love of balance needs putting to the test. Are they really up to it? I suggest a game of Musical Statues. I find this game most entertaining when played on a boat.
CAPRICORN (DEC 21–JAN 19). Capricorn will have little time for party games, far better ways to occupy their time. Set them a task. Try the How Quickly Can You Do My Ironing game, and with points for style, too.
TAURUS (APR 21–MAY 21)
LEO (JULY 23–AUG 22)
SCORPIO (OCT 23–NOV 21)
AQUARIUS (JAN 20–FEB 19)
Taureans need to muster their strong points when playing games. A certain amount of aggression is required for the classic Are You There Moriarty, Google it dullard!
Lovely Leos like a chase, especially if there is a chance of a kill. The predatory nature of Leo makes them ideally suited to a good game of What Time Is It Mr Wolf?
Scorpio will want to play any game that means cornering people in small spaces but given their nature this should be avoided. Instead, a rousing round of Pin The Tail On The Donkey
Aquarians will do what Aquarians will do. Set them to Musical Chairs and they will turn it into musical beds. Of course no one will ever be ‘out’ they will just all end up in the one divan.
GEMINI (MAY 22–JUNE 21)
VIRGO (AUG 23–SEP 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 22–DEC 20)
PISCES (FEB 20–MAR 20)
Geminis will play games as long as everyone else is playing. Yes, as ever you tend to want to trail behind someone else and so your game is Follow My Leader, you sad thing.
Virgo’s natural tendency to chastity and self-denial needs to be squashed. I beg you all to force them into a game of noholds-barred Kiss Chase, winner takes all. And I mean all!
Sagittarians will be best entertained playing my own special Sagi game called Sitting Still And Being Quiet. This is best achieved in a state of slumber, so it’s an easy option.
Pisceans of course will be happiest when playing Sardines. I find this game is improved by adding olive oil to the rules, but not tomato sauce which can sting. Try eating them at Bardsley’s.

COVER STORY 11
Cheers Here’s to twenty years of Donatello, Brighton’s favourite Italian family restaurant
What will Donatello look like in 20 years? A lot of our staff have been with us since we opened, have married each other and gone on to have families. I hope in 20 years some of them and their children are still with us. What next for D Productions? My sons Leonardo, Stefano and Mikele are all involved in running Donatello and the other restaurants in the D Production group (Pinocchio, FATleo and Fratelli) and they have exciting plans for the future! Watch this space… Donatello, 1-3 Brighton Place, Brighton, BN1 1HJ. Call 01273 775477 www.donatello.co.uk Open seven days a week 11.30am – 11.30pm
Have you had any funny incidents? I could write a book about them, but the funniest thing that has happened was someone shouting about how outrageous it was that the toilets had been taken away to create more seating upstairs, leaving no facilities. I had to calm her down and explain that we had moved them downstairs! How has Brighton changed in the years since you’ve been open? The biggest change is that Brighton feels like it has come much closer to London now with the motorways and the fast trains so there are a lot more weekend visitors from the capital.
How has the restaurant changed? When we opened our doors originally, we had around 90 seats. Since we’ve expanded into our neighbouring properties, the restaurant now seats over 300.
What is your best memory from the restaurant? When the serving Prime Minister Tony Blair and his wife and family came in for a meal. I think whatever your politics, having a Prime Minister and his family eat in your restaurant is quite special. Cherie and the children have been in subsequently too – they even celebrated one of the children’s 18th birthday in the restaurant.
What has been your most unusual request for food? The time an elderly lady came into the restaurant, ordered her starter, then bent down and pulled out of her bag a whole fish, still flapping, and asked us to cook it for her main course! Unfortunately, we had to decline, but she still became a regular customer.
righton has seen some quite significant changes over the last 20 years – the loss of the West Pier, the marriage of Brighton with Hove as a city and 12 different managers of the Albion, but the city has seen one constant – family-run restaurant Donatello. Situated in the heart of the Lanes, Donatello has been serving tasty, authentic Italian fare at reasonable prices to locals and tourists alike since first opening its doors in 1989. Owned and managed by the Addis family, Donatello initially took half the site that it currently occupies with the other half being taken by part of the now closed Hanningtons Department store. Over the years, the restaurant has expanded to fill the Hanningtons’ site as well and now sees over 1000 people through its doors on a typical Saturday. The menu 20 years ago featured classic Italian dishes, including a range of delicious pizzas and pastas as well as yummy Italian ice creams and desserts. Many of these dishes are still firm favourites at the restaurant including the ever popular Pizza Margherita and house special Spaghetti Donatello. And brilliantly the menu doesn't cost a great deal more than 20 years ago, with Pizza Margherita still only costing £4.95 (it was £3.55 in 1989) and Spaghetti Donatello, still a very reasonable £5.95. We caught up with Sue Addis, owner of Donatello, to talk about the last 20 years as a restaurateur in Brighton.
Who has been your favourite diner? What makes us particularly happy is that having been here for 20 years we are now serving the children of the children in the families who initially ate here.

Komedia news Komedia bosses are confident the much-loved Brighton comedy, music and entertainment venue WILL stay open despite its financial troubles. A spokesman told Latest that the team were very hopeful a meeting with creditors on Monday will result in a rescue package that will keep the Gardner Street club afloat. Creditors have been asked to accept a minimum emergency payment of 33p in the pound. BUT the spokesman said this is the worst case scenario and in fact, if Komedia manages to make money, its debts will eventually be paid in full.
Take pride Brighton and Hove city council leader Mary Mears says be proud of our soldiers ast week saw one of the most vile spectacles any of us will have witnessed in the media in recent months. Having risked their lives for this country in Iraq, dozens of soldiers were forced to endure a sickening tirade of abuse during their homecoming march through Luton on Tuesday. Members of the 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, known as the Poachers, were branded ‘terrorists’ by so-called protestors, who waved placards telling the brave troops to “go to hell”.
“It seems obvious to me that this demonstration was disgraceful” Whatever you think about the Iraq invasion, it seems obvious to me that this demonstration was disgraceful. It had no place in any British town or city and I would hope that in Brighton and Hove we would never show such abject disrespect towards our soldiers, who, after all, have
He said: “Since the publicity we have had a fantastic response from the community and performers, and an outpouring of love towards the venue, which is really quite reassuring.” He said the debts were a result of the recent extension and expansion into Bath. The Bath venue, a separate entity, will remain open in the hope of bringing in money to save the club. If creditors do agree a deal, he said, Komedia has a bright future because audience levels are high. “At the moment people are coming through the door. Business is good.”

LATEST NEWS 13
News Phil Mills reports on the love station and a business that is growing despite the climate
Love all Sussex police station has been dubbed “Cupid Central” after nine of its officers married in as many months. Its reputation as a hot-bed of romance has spread and some officers now looking for love are hoping to be transferred there. There have been seven weddings in total since last summer involving nine grooms and brides all of whom found partners while at Bexhill police station. With the town’s police population at just over 80, the marrying officers made up more than ten per cent of its entire force. PCs married other PCs, an Inspector married a police community support officer, a Sergeant married a Detective Constable, while others married police from other stations or people from outside the service. Support officer Sarah Ellis, married joiner Adam Hunt. She said: “It’s only a small station and it doesn’t look a romantic place but there is a lot of love going round. “You can imagine how packed with flowers it was here on Valentine’s Day. All the men were very romantic.” Sarah, the first among the brides to fall pregnant since their wedding days, said jokes were flying round about being careful what seats you sit in at the station in case you are hit by Cupid’s arrow. DC Richard Gill, who married Sergeant Claire Hamblin, said it was all one big coincidence: “I can’t imagine what odds you could have got for this to happen but I doubt if the bookies would have taken my money – they would have accused me of having insider knowledge.” Support officer Rachael Pollen, who married Inspector James Scott, said: “When it comes to love, Bexhill is the place to be. “Who said romance was dead?”
“Jokes were flying round about being careful where you sit in case you are hit by Cupid’s arrow”
Good business Not every business is suffering in the recession and, in fact, some are doing better the usual. Some private security firms in Sussex are receiving more business on the back of police figures showing an increase in burglaries, caused in part by a shrinking jobs market. Anthony Spalding, who runs Brightonbased AP Spalding Protective Solutions Ltd, is one who has seen a rapid growth. The 41-year-old served in the Army (six years with the Coldstream Guards) and the police (14 years as a PC) before launching a close protection service for the rich and famous, including members of the Dubai Royal Family. He’s now expanded into an alarm-response business for homeowners and commercial enterprises. He said: “I saw that burglaries were on the increase and felt I was
well positioned to help fill the market gap.” He is now focusing on linking intruder alarms with a team to respond to call-outs to people’s homes, shops or offices, on a 24-7 basis. Mr Spalding doesn’t regard his business as a private police force or in any way a rival to law enforcement agencies but a service that helps both customers and police. He said: “I just enjoy looking after people and their assets, which they have worked so hard for.” There’s not much to cheer about in the current economic climate but Mr Spalding is proving the old adage still stands – every cloud has a silver lining.
14 LETTERS | SPORT Congratulations Dear Andrew, I've been meaning to contact you for a long time. I must tell you how much my husband Bob and I enjoy your articles in Latest 7, plus some of the others, particularly the Cheeky Boys – in fact I sent them a supporting letter re the 81 bus. I remember some months ago reading that you are also a North Westerner. Bob and I were both born on the Wirral and I worked for some time in Liverpool then moved to London to pursue my music and drama studies. Bob left the area quite quickly after leaving school to go to RADA so he never really settled into becoming a Wirralian (as dear Paul O'Grady insists we who were born “on the other side of the water“ should style ourselves) What we were thrilled about was reading your great championing of local suppliers, a great many of whom we also have deal with. Particularly: Brian Archer, the Butler's Wine Cellar, Wild Cherry special days out to Newhaven Fish and on the way home we usually stop at the incredible Middle Farm Shop for cider and herbs for the garden, plus other goodies like the jams and chutneys and fudge. Incidentally Bob raves about the newish market in Islingword Place, and although I have tasted the produce I haven't yet paid it a visit myself. I loved your article on oyster tastings, so I just read your article and salivated to my heart's content.The best I ever tasted were at Aldeburgh at a marvellous pub right on Brighton and Newhaven the beach that served Fish Sales, South Quay them with draught Basin Road South, porter. Wow! Aldrington Basin, Portslade Lots of love, Valerie Griffiths
A star is born I attended the Valentine’s Day Mascara show held on Sunday 15 February at the Latest Music Bar in Kemp Town. Not only is the venue a breath of fresh air, the show, starring Spice, was a revelation. Never before in Brighton have I watched a performer on the gay scene who is totally original, hugely talented, with catwalk glamour and killer legs. He doesn’t mime, or sing the same overused songs. Neither does he wear tacky costumes. We’re talking bespoke costume design here. His newly written Valentine’s Day Mascara cleverly took the audience through the history of the often broken heart of celebrities. With original wit, live rock music and costumes to make your eyes stand to attention, the show was brave, bold and quite literally brilliant and one that I shall remember for a very long time. If you want to catch a star in the making, I urge you to catch his next show, Hedwig, at the Latest Music Bar in April. Iain Cameron Williams

Latest Sport Round ups and rumblings from the Latest Sport bunker
The big cheese Latest Sport’s Joe Curtin takes a look at the point of managers n the Bunker, I’ve noticed we discuss the role of the manager a lot. I asked a friend of mine last month of the importance of the angry, referee-bashing, 4-4-2playing, gum-chewing, trackies mid-week-suit on Saturday, cupsof-tea-throwing, chalkboardwielding babysitters of grown men. “Not that much,” he replied. “It isn’t hard to get a team of professional athletes to do their job properly.” And then, as a proud Charlton Athletic fan, he preceded to highlight his club’s problems that have resulted from Alan Pardew’s tenure. None of which I could disagree with.
football they can, and both are scaring pretty-pretty boy Arsene Wenger. A manager whose legacy cannot be underrated: one so beautiful it has cost him greater success. Arsenal, however, have scraped into the next round of the European Cup, albeit as the better team. The importance of the manager is shown again by Guus Hiddink at Chelsea. I didn’t rate him but he’s got them playing like the powerful Blues again. Big Phil played too Brazilian-style central attack for a centre back-famed game in England. Benitez has got
“The importance of the manager is shown by Guus Hiddink at Chelsea. He’s got them playing like the powerful Blues again” But then, Fulham under Hodgson (it’s March and they’re not in a relegation battle? Roy Hodgson? Crikey), Sgrabia – how do you pronounce that; had it down at Scrabble? It’s a proper noun! – at Sunderland doing better than the great Roy Keane who had, despite his intelligence and love and knowledge of football, the man-management skills of a psychopath – oh… Gianfranco Zola is having West Ham play some of the best football I’ve seen; Brown has Hull punching way above their weight. I see Pardew and Ian Dowie are currently unemployed. Martin O’Neill, unsurprisingly, and David Moyes are threatening to take their smaller clubs – who’d have thought Villa and Everton would be small clubs – to break the big four, and deservedly so. Both managers try to play the most attractive
Liverpool playing fantastic Spain-style football; their destruction of Real has shown that. Will he sign that contract? Scousers, and English neutrals hope so. Liverpool would have won the title, regardless of powerful internal rumblings, were it not for the majesty of Manchester United. Mourinho has made great job of a poor Inter team, but United, aside from the scares caused by their cocksure attitude, were by far the better side. So, do managers matter? Yes, Alex Ferguson has crafted the best team in Europe and it seems hubris is their only weakness. It looks as though English clubs are dominating Europe again this year but, with some way to go, whoever beat Man U must have to be European champions. And so a United-Liverpool final must be the game of the year.
ANDREW KAY’S FOOD & DRINK 15
Food & drink Andrew Kay tries to dine discretely at L’Eglise but is spotted…
Ooh la la ou can’t break step in this town without someone noticing it. And before you can say Craig Revel Horwood there are reports of you tangoing down Church Road in a pink tutu with some twinky on your arm. It was the day before Valentine’s Day, but I was unaware that the city had embraced a new concept of Valentine’s weekend, clever marketing but slightly disconcerting if your plans for a nice supper with a new friend are suddenly surrounded by the loved-up residents of Brighton and Hove. Fortunately for me we were in the safe hands of the team at L’Eglise in deepest Hove. I have been to L’Eglise often enough to feel totally comfortable with both the staff and the menu, each as charming as the other. For my guest, Mr R, yes a new initial, it was a little more intimidating. As well as the staff there were also people that I knew dotted about the place, some who came and said hello and some who merely passed on the sighting to colleagues later. Thank you one and all. Anyway to the real point and that of course is the food. Oh what joy to find a menu that is not innovative, cutting edge, nouvelle or simply novel. Au contraire, the food here is classy, classic French bistro – pretty much from start to finish. And to start we had a G&T and a vodka and orange along with small croute piled with a hefty tapenade. I like a gutsy tapenade and this packed a punch. Mr R started his meal proper with tartiflette, the most comforting of peasant dishes and when made well a real delight. This looked pretty perfect although I failed to get my fork in it. My salad of chicory with walnuts and cheese, another classic, hit exactly the right note, light but tasty. Marmite de poisson came next for Mr R and he spent a very happy twenty minutes crossing his bowl of perfectly cooked fish. I certainly had my trad hat on and chose moules frites. To be honest, my appetite was not huge so the idea of a bowl of shellfish in light broth seemed a sensible choice. Of course they came in a huge steel pot and were the plumpest blighters I have seen in a long while. The broth too was simplicity itself, light, fragrant and not thick with cream. I happily sat picking the flesh from the shells. I was equally
“What a joy to find a menu that is not innovative – simply classy, classic French”
happy dipping fabulous fat frite into the soup. Cooked in duck fat and dusted with salt they were delicious, and Mr R agreed. For dessert I was determined not to have the same as every other time I have been, but I failed. So once again I sailed to the isles flottant, the loveliest of puds and basked in a sea of creme Anglaise. Mr R chose the pot au chocolate, rich, dark and yummy – baby food for grown-ups. It put a very wide smile on his face, and as a consequence on mine. I do like to see my guests tucking in and enjoying themselves, nothing looks better than the smile on the face of someone with something tasty in their mouth. L’Eglise is quite brilliant, informal but smart, tasty, affordable, classic and fun. The service is faultless, the food piping hot and generous too, no going home hungry from L’Eglise. I too left with an enormous smile on my face and nice round tummy. L'Eglise Restaurant, 196 Church Road, Hove, BN3 2DJ. Call 01273 220868

Beauty’s secret Zara Baker finds a best-kept secret in skincare at Beautique Brighton ermalogica is a product range often referred to as the best-kept secret in the skin care industry. It’s adored by celebrities including Jennifer Aniston (who’s looking fab at 40) and Kelly Brook (glowing at 30). With the extensive range of products available to A-Listers, it’s telling to see why they choose Dermalogica. I visited Beautique Brighton to find out more on the brand. Dermalogica is a pure, no-nonsense range. Every product is formulated with the purest, finest ingredients to promote, improve and sustain skin health. They have no need for overblown claims, They are, as Sarah, manager of the salon says, “affordable, simple, do-what-they-say products”. The Dermalogica range is extensive, so many people will be unsure of where to start. That’s where Beautique Brighton come in. All the therapists are trained at the Dermalogica Institute so they fully understand each product and their benefits. Each facial is unique and customised to the individual client due to the “face mapping” skin analysis. It’s not just a lovely, pampering treatment, thorough training provides individual diagnosis so each step is working specifically for each clients’ skin type. Dermalogica products are famous for what isn’t included as much as for what it is – with no artificial colours, no irritant artificial fragrances or alcohol. Ingredients come from eco-safe sources, are packaged in recyclable containers and are never tested on animals. Brighton celebrity Zoe Ball is a fan for this reason. She said: “I can’t use perfumed products and have to be careful with soaps. I swear by the Dermalogica toner, the intensive moisturiser and lip balm. They make such a difference.” She’s not the only one. Dannii Minogue has said her all-time favourite beauty product is the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel. Kelly Brook incorporates the range into her daily routine, saying: “My beauty regime consists mainly of Dermalogica products. I swear by them”. Denise Van Outen unwinds with the help of Dermalogica: “I’m a massive fan of Dermalogica products especially their MultiVitamin Power firm eye treatment. I love Dermalogica facials after a busy week.” A diagnosis at Beautique Brighton for the best products in the range will start a skin-care regime you will soon swear by. There’s a facial designed especially for men and body treatments including two superb body wraps at Beautique. You will be reaping the rewards, combining pampering with exceptional skin care. Don’t forget Mother’s Day! Treat your mum to the gift of beautiful skin. Beautique Brighton are offering two facials for the price of Get the celebrity look for less: one until Friday 27 March.

Under review Here’s our roundup of recent local shows, plus there’s oodles of reviews online at www.thelatest.co.uk Candi Staton A full house aged from 16 to 82 adored her and she paid back in full. Still blessed with an amazing voice she relived the hits like ‘You Got The Love‘ and ‘Nights On Broadway‘. ‘Suspicious Minds‘ was more convincing than Elvis and ‘Stand By Your Man] about strength and understanding not subservience. She inspired with stories of tough times in a man's world as soul was before, well before Candi and her contemporaries Candi Staton
Aretha and Gladys. A great band were joined by the whole crowd for a 20 minute finale – the celebratory ‘Young Hearts Run Free‘. She's Got The Love! The Old Market 25 February
★★★★★ Bill Smith Ross Noble Ross Noble has a remarkable mind, skipping from one subject to the next, interrupting himself and spending the entire first half of the show simply interacting with the audience and skiffing off them. He’s a funny man who even finds material from his recent tragedy of losing his home and worldly possessions in the recent Australian bush fires. At times more thought-provoking than laugh out loud hilarious, Noble is still a completely unique and rather marvellous fellow. Dome Concert Hall, 4 March
★★★★✩ Victoria Nangle
Alice Formerly known as Blueprint, Alice are a six-piece band featuring a trumpet, trombone, keyboards plus the usual guitar, bass and drums set-up. Unfeasibly young (the bassist is 15 apparently), their indie-skaglam sound is raising eyebrows and developing interest wherever they play. One of their signature songs 'The Young and Lost Club' sums up their style and sound – blaring horns, ska rhythms, vocal harmonies, keys and a rip roaring guitar solo. It's all in there, gelled by Dom Pearson's incisive, world-weary lyrics. A band to keep a close eye on. The Brunswick pub, 7 March
Hot review of the week Rambert Dance Company Rambert once again deliver the goods in an programme that proves their vast talent and versatility. Starting with the emotionally charged sweep of Eternal Light Mark Baldwin’s collaboration with Howard Goodall and Michael Howells shows the company at their ensemble best, even in this pared down touring setting. In fact with less setting the eye focused more on the dance. Stunning playing from the pit and brilliant soloists made this a magical start to an evening in which they went on to prove that soloists and ensemble are better than ever. They also reaffirmed their
ability to entertain with a witty setting of Saint-Saëns Carnival of the Animals that sent us home smiling. Theatre Royal, 4 March
Not One Thing... But Another A taster of the local comedic talent mixing stand-ups and improvisation. Claire Parker had some winning gags to open and moments of smiles in the audience, Adam Smith's deadpan delivery came across as reassuringly experienced with a likeable persona easily warmed to, and Karl Davison told amenable stories that amused but didn't prompt much out loud laughter. The last comic Marie Vagen was winningly entertaining, and simply needed more conviction in her delivery. The topper of the improv troupe Accidentally/On Purpose was great fun and left a happy and entertained room. Marlborough Theatre, 25 February

I am an artist, an artiste, a performer, choreographer, film-maker, a hybrid, an interdisciplinary merchant, an artapprentice, a women driven and on the edge of a mission. I make expressionistic, uncompromising, challenging, live work characterised by a trademark grotesque stylised performance vocabulary in dance/dance theatre, dance for camera/screen dance, performance art/live art, screen dance installation/performance installation. I have dodged categorisation and been classified as unclassifiable.

Double trouble Liz Aggiss and Charlotte Vincent are talking the talk and dancing the dance at the Sallis Benney ouble Vision is a brand new live art, dance and discussion evening with influential anarchic performer Liz Aggiss and internationally acclaimed choreographer Charlotte Vincent. A female double act with a combined age of 96, Double Vision explores the relationship between director and performer, between conceptual complexity and physical simplicity, between seriousness and humour. A kind of female Morecambe and Wise doing a bit of self-penned Beckett.

Marley And Me (PG) Dir: David Frankel Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston are those loved up newlywed kids, moving into their new home with their new dog Marley. Boisterous, fun and hardly disciplined, Marley is much loved and helps guide the couple through the trials and tribulations of adapting to marriage. A feelgood learning comedy type film. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon
Gran Torino (15) Dir: Clint Eastwood Back in Dirty Harry hard man mode, Clint stars and directs this piece about a Korean veteran turning local hero when a neighbourhood kid tries to steal his 1972 Gran Torino. There are far, far better things than gangs – so says the Eastwood. Nice twist at the end, this is what would have happened if Dirty Harry had grown old with a white picket fence. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon
Lesbian Vampire Killers (15) Dir: Phil Claydon Flavours of the year Mathew Horne and James Corden star as two gormless hiking mates who trip over a nest of lesbian vampires in Wales. As you do. More than a little silly, this comic horror has matehood pitted against mythical creatures and Brit gags galore. Showing at Cineworld, Odeon
Bronson (18) Dir: Nicolas Winding Refn Biopic of the infamous British career inmate Charles Bronson, formerly known as Michael Peterson of Aberystwyth. Starring Tom Hardy (RocknRolla) and Brightonians Matt King and James Lance as his boxing promoter and art teacher, this tells a story of a man that has spent more time inside than out, 30 years of which was in solitary confinement. Showing at Duke Of York’s
The Young Victoria (PG) Dir: Jean-Marc Vallée With a producer that’s an ex royal (Sarah Ferguson) you’d be forgiven for thinking that this was all about Royal bashing. Nothing of the sort. Emily Blunt’s strong portrayal of a princess and then Queen fighting for her own will and her romance with Prince Albert is sympathetic to the humanity of the difficulties she faces. Fab but not stuffy period fare. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon Watchmen (18) Dir: Zack Snyder Based on the mega successful graphic novel‘s high hopes and great expectations are on the shoulders of this bad boy. Based in an alternative 1985, with costumed vigilantes the norm, a group of superheroes come together to investigate the death of one of their own. Not a disappointment to fans and perfectly understandable to fresh eyes. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon
Il Divo (15) Dir: Paolo Sorrentino A pretty exhaustive history of Italian politics since 1946. Goodbye El Duco, hello Giulio Andreotti – Italy’s Prime Minister seven times since he first kicked off when the war in Europe ended. Nominated for the Palm D’Or, this biopic has received much praise from its European audience. Showing at Duke Of York’s Wendy & Lucy (15) Dir: Kelly Reichardt Michelle Williams performs the subtle low-fi role of Wendy in this tale of struggle and isolation. When her car breaks down during her long journey to Alaska, and her dog, Lucy, goes missing, Wendy finds herself alone, low on funds and falling through one tough situation into another. A delicately constructed picture underpinned by self-determination. Showing at Duke Of York’s
Girl power Mathew Horne on slapstick, buddy banter and why Lesbian Vampire Killers can be seen as a feminist text s there a straight man/funny man dynamic between you and James Corden? Yes, although there’s a certain dynamic set up. I don’t quite know how to put it really as I don’t quite know what it is, but I think I’m funny in a different ways to James’s funny. That’s all I can tell you. I have quite a bit of slapstick so it’s not as simple as one of us does that, and one does witty banter. It’s funny in different ways. I haven’t watched enough of us to analyse it that much; I don’t know what it is yet, so it’s still evolving. When we do our sketch show it will evolve even more and I think by the end of that, I’ll probably know exactly what it is and I’ll be able to put it in good media soundbites for you! At the moment it’s ‘A clown and a straight man, and some blurring!’
How does your relationship work in this film? It’s about a relationship between two men and, comedically, it’s
“It feels like it has a little of a sitcom, a bit of silent film, and a bit of classic buddy movie ” about their vernacular, the type of banter that one has with a good friend. As you say it’s about dialogue and there’s slapstick, which is also intrinsically involved in the gore and the effects. It feels like it has a little of a sitcom feel, a bit of silent film, and a bit of classic buddy movie. And a bust up with your girlfriend prompts your character’s adventure? Yeah. She’s a super mega bitch. She dumps me because
she’s having an affair with somebody else and as soon as she dumps me she finds out the guy she’s having the affair with is married and she comes back after me. An equally hard woman has sacked James from his job, so we decide to go off hiking together. My ex comes to get me back. She wants to resolve everything just as I’m trying to do something positive in life by going away and having a good time with my mate. She comes back but she ends up dead. She gets a double whammy. Amazingly, this is not the first lesbian vampire film… Yeah, there’s something called The Hunger and a film about lesbian kickboxers. Heard of that? Yep, there are lesbian vampire kickboxers.
Win cinema tickets to a film of your choice at the Odeon Brighton For a chance to win this week’s tickets, answer this question: How do you kill a vampire? a) Shoot it with a silver bullet. b) Drive a stake through its heart. c) Use Kryptonite. Email your answer to email@example.com with ‘Lesbian Vampire Killers’ in the subject box, or write to us at the address on page 3. Closing date for entries is Monday 30 March. The winner will get a pair of tickets to see a film of their choice. Proof of age may be required.
Is horror close to your heart? Because you’re establishing yourself as a comic actor… I would like to continue to see myself as a comic actor. Thank you. You can put that in. Journalists always ask ‘Do you want to do different things?’ But I’m more than happy to do what I’m doing. I absolutely love what I can just about do, and it can embody other things such as horror. I studied film at university and a big part of that study was to examine their meanings and whatnot, particularly the feminist angle.
Have any of your friends given you stick about the title? There’s an angry lesbians petitioning your film on their website… I think that was inevitable and the simple argument for them is that — and I don’t take them too seriously, maybe I should — it can also be read as a feminist text movie, because they are strong women. We are dumped and ditched by strong women and we were attacked by strong women and these are strong women who can destroy men and want to destroy mankind! So the flip side of it is that it is a feminist text. All my female friends burst out laughing when they hear the title. I think it’s a really exciting title and think it makes people want to see it. Lesbian Vampire Killers is out on Friday 20 March.
24 STAND-UP COMEDY | ART
A laughing matter Victoria Nangle poses the question – what happens next at a comedy cul-de-sac?
omedy cul-de-sacs are lethal. Anyone who goes to see live comedy regularly will recognise this term as what happens when a comic is chatting away with the audience and then runs out of funny. Whether it’s taking the mickey out of the entire front row’s occupations drawn to a halt by a hospice worker – you cannot ridicule the worthy – or simply no conclusion to a topic, these are glaring hiccups in any night. Sometimes it can be an unexpected curve ball from an audience member. As well as the invincible worthy audience members, a punter can throw a comic any number of ways without meaning to. A particularly loud laugh. A shattering pint glass. A refusal to come out from the feotal position and answer any questions at all. All of these are easily overcome by more experienced comics. Essentially the event draws attention away from the comic and, unless the comic can come up with an Oscar Wilde-worthy quip honed for the moment, are best ignored. There’ll be a stop to the proceedings and then the comic will start the night up again.
“... these, unless the comic can come up with an Oscar Wilde-worthy quip honed for the moment, are best ignored” How a comic deals with these are quite telling. Do they go down the spiralling pit of reaching for that killer put down to the squeaky door at the back? Do they simply raise an arched eyebrow in a knowing fashion? Or do they simply drop to a low bow to the wailing sirens passing by? Obviously, if it’s a delicate matter the best thing to do is acknowledge that and then carry on to a new topic. Doesn’t always happen that way. I saw a gig a while back in which a seasoned comic started down the route of proven material they had about city foxes. Unaware there was a large party from the Countryside Alliance in, who knew a lot more about foxes than the comic did. Did they stop? Did they, bally! And all they got for their perseverance was a lot of heckling and evidence of a very bruised ego by the end of the show. Respect the highway code of the gig! It’s easier to move forward when you’ve got to reverse less.

A community archive shows what happens with a little people power Rattling the Cage is a community archive of documents, textiles, photography and film used in the ‘Save Omar’ campaign, which has been curated by Louise Purbrick. It demonstrates the power of improvisation. As a group of people from Brighton, Worthing and Eastbourne began to work together for the return of Guantánamo detainee Omar Deghayes to his home in Saltdean, they developed skills and materials that could be called an art of politics: they wrote letters and plays, performed on the street and for the screen. They also created posters, postcards, badges and clothing. The exhibition of their archive is an opportunity to reflect upon how the creativity of local people can be used to effect political change. Omar Deghayes was finally released in December 2007 after more than six years imprisoned without charge or trial. Rattling The Cage, Phoenix Gallery, until 21 March.

John O’Donoghue on a hero of the poetic word who is appearing in Brighton very soon ho has opened for The Sex Pistols, toured with The Fall, lived with Nico, played himself in Control, and got namechecked by Alex Turner of The Arctic Monkeys? Could it be the same guy who played straight man to the Honey Monster in a Sugar Puffs advert? Step right up John Cooper Clarke, appearing at the Komedia on 24 March in a rare outing. Johnny Clarke, ‘the name behind the hairstyle’, will be delighting punters who love such all-time classics as ‘Evidently Chicken Town’, ‘I Married A Monster From Outer Space’, and ‘Kung Fu International’. Christened the first ‘Punk Poet’ by Tony Wilson of Factory fame, JCC says his biggest influence is Peter O’Sullevan, the old BBC racing commentator. Not for him the namby pambyness of iambic pentameter – Cooper Clarke rhymes to the rhythm of pile-ups, and gets more f words into a poem since Philip Larkin complained about his mum and dad.

“Cooper Clarke rhymes to the rhythm of pile-ups ” I first heard him in the seventies, and I’ve been a fan ever since. I even have his very rare book from the early eighties, Ten Years In An Open Necked Shirt. It cost me halfnothing, and now it’s going for a hundred pounds a pop on Amazon. Beat that, Mr Motion. In fact, now we get some say in the choice of new Poet Laureate, I’d like to propose John Cooper Clarke for the role. The man has everything: elegance – sartorial and syntactical; wit to match the best of Prince Philip’s; and a great love of corgis. And dinky toys, I hear. Anyone who can write: ‘Belladonna is your flower/Manslaughter your meat/Spend a year in a couple of hours/On the edge of Beasley Street’ would get my vote. Hell, I’ve never even been to Beasley Street, but every time I go down London Road I’m there. So it’s John Cooper Clarke for me. I suggest you check him out.

Ready to rumble Charlie from The Rumble Strips took some time out to talk to Jeff Hemmings The Maccabees
Winter sounds A first class line-up of bands and DJs will descend upon Eastbourne’s Winter Garden on 24 and 25 April. Acts confirmed for 24 April include Brighton’s The Maccabees, and Friendly Fires, who are fresh from playing the NME Awards tour. Supporting will be the hotly tipped The Joy Formidable, plus London based Data Select Party, who are originally from Eastbourne. The 25 April will be more DJ orientated, with headliners Chase and Status and Andy C taking to the main stage.
Recommendations Blogging has become part and parcel of the internet communication landscape, as every Tom, Dick and Harry decide to inflict their opinions upon the world. But there is some good to be had. And Brighton-based music blog www.therecommender.net is one of those; a popular taste-maker developing a reputation. Mike Bradford is behind this one, and he’s put together a good looking site that concentrates on new music from around the globe.
he revival in prebeat music can be heard everywhere it seems, even in darkest, deepest Devon, which in places evokes a land that time forgot. Which is no bad thing, as Devon’s The Rumble Strips have proved over the last couple of years with their indie rock’n’roll hybrid. There are hints of it in the haircuts and dress sense; a sort of less preening version of American Grafitti. Much more rough ’n’ ready these boys, as befits their rural roots (it’s really the domain of urbanites to over wax and ween; likewise you wont find any ‘orange’ victims in the countryside either)… So, The Rumble Strips, a name that evokes drag strips, racing cars and softball teams… “I was playing i-spy with my brother, and his question was something beginning with R. Rumble Strips are those strips (bumps) on the side of the road, that separate the road from the hard shoulder…” Well, goddam! I never knew that, and thank lead singer Charlie for bringing me up to speed on that one. I subsequently learn that this is an American term, used on ‘highways’; again, befitting a rural English band who are plainly in love with the sound of early rock ’n’ roll and the American Dream. “Yes, I’m totally into early

rock ’n’ roll,” says Charlie, “like early doowop.” (note the emphasis on ‘early’, a sign of a true fan). He namechecks acts such as Billy Ward & The Dominoes and Dion & The Belmonts. Bill Ward’s band contained both Clyde McPhatter (who went on to form The Drifters) and Jackie Wilson. Which brings us to those comparisons with Kevin Rowland of Dexy’s Midnight Runners, and who had a big hit with their homage to Jackie Wilson. “Yeah, I met him once for an NME interview, where we interviewed each other. We both said we didn’t sound like each other. And they never ran the interview!” The new Rumble Strips material has been produced by uber-producer Mark Ronson, and Waller says expect a much more grand, less rattly sound.

Tuung with Tinariwen An interesting proposition, bringing together the dark and mysterious nu-folk electronica of Tunng with the mellow, hypnotic desert blues of Tinariwen, who were formed in Southern Algeria by three young friends living in exile. In the 1980s they became soldier-musicians, lured into military camps in Libya. After a brief and painful rebellion against the government of Mali, they accepted peace and finally realised their dream of becoming full-time musicians. Their name, based on ‘Kel Tinariwen’, means the ‘desert boys’. This should be an interesting musical experiment. Wednesday 18 March, De La Warr Pavilion Kovak Local electro-dance pioneers continue their quest for pop stardom with the launch of their album Heroes and High Heels, a high energy disco inflected stomper featuring some hook-laden tracks, that revolve around life in the bright lights of the big city, its dancefloors and, of course, sex. Shades of Blondie, B-52s, Duran Duran and more modern electro-pop permeates throughout. This five-piece led by Abby Harmony are a formidable live proposition, able to emulate the highly polished sounds of the album. Thursday 19 March, Latest Music Bar Goldie Lookin’ Chain There’s something about the Welsh accent that can sound very funny when applied skillfully. Welsh parody hip hoppers do that with ease, sending up stereotypes with their scrunchy beats and phat
grooves. It’s where The Happy Mondays might have ended up if they hadn’t got befuddled in narcotics, and why The Streets sound so alienated to non-believers. Monday 23 March, Concorde 2 Daby Toure Toure’s soulful blend of Saharan roots and lovingly crafted Afro-pop reflects a life in transition. Daby was born and raised in Mauritania – on the fault line between Moorish North Africa and the sub-Saharan desert – but honed his craft on the vibrant jazz and African music scene of Paris. His solo debut Diam caught the ear of Peter Gabriel, who snapped him up for his 2004 world tour. Nominated for Best Newcomer at the BBC World Music Awards 2006, Daby’s star is in the ascendant. His latest album Stereo Spirit is a sensuous fusion of traditional roots, catchy hooks and mellifluous vocals all wrapped up in a laid-back acoustic reggae groove. . Friday 18 March, Pavilion Theatre The Perils + Sweet Sweet Lies + Drookit Dogs + The Pursuit What a line-up, a cracking selection of some of the best bands in the area. From the full-on frontal indie rock assault of the exciting The perils, to the magnificently crafted noir indie country of Sweet Sweet Lies; and from the insanely infectious punk folk of The Drookit Dogs to the classical indie guitar work of the impossibly youthful The Perils, this is a candidate for local bands gig of the year.

28 MUSIC REVIEWS | CHART
REVIEWS A weekly review of local and national releases he new wave of nu-folk bands are making their mark, and at the forefront of this second wave are Brighton’s Wilkommen Collective, who during May’s Brighton Festival, are organising three separate gigs. One of the acts playing are The Leisure Society who also happen to have their debut album The Sleeper released via the collective. A gorgeous work of folk pop nuanced songs put together by Nick Hemming and Christian Hardy. there’s a strong late 60s feel throughout, (eg, The Byrds). Wistful, poetic and romantic, The Sleeper is a triumph. Brighton-based singer songwriter Hanna has consistently been making high quality music for a number of years. Once lead singer of funky festival band Pan and then one-half of Hanna & Magdalena, she’s been largely on her own the last couple of years with new album Here Now Now bearing the fruit of a productive period; fine tuning her folk, jazz sounds. Her expressive, yet controlled voice perfectly complements the acoustic based numbers (she’s a fine guitarist too), and with a plethora of high quality guest musicians (including cellist Adrian Oxall, tabla player Julian Franks and guitarist Matt Szul) there is a rich depth to the songs throughout from start to finish. New York City experimentalists Gang Gang Dance are signed to cult faves Warp and generating plenty of interest in their sometimes discomforting sounding Avante Garde post rock. Somehow, Saint Dymphna works, even though it veers from discordant and haunting techno/post-punk rhythms, through to spazoid oriental techno. All-inall it’s like TV On The Radio meets The Pop Group, if you know what I mean. And I’m not sure I do. It’s relentless stuff though, and after a while all the madness starts to wear… Brighton electro-dance outfit Damn Dirty Humans release the Superstar EP, with a launch at Latest Music Bar on Sunday 22 March. Satisfyingly progressive house beats and bleeps provide the basis, with Kimberley Berry offering up the big and soulful vocals. Quality uplifting dance music Jazz supremo Courtney Pine continues to experiment with all forms and nuances of jazz, with New Orleans, Caribbean, old school swing, creole, Eastern European, South African and of course, American flavours, expertly crafted and mixed together, seamlessly shifting from one style to another. The album, in parts, also pays tribute to the saxophone star Sidney Bechet. Pine is the master of all trades it seems, and in Transition In Tradition he’s come up with another top quality jazz album that is accessible, if a little bit relentless at times, and yet highly sophisticated.

BRIGHTON’S ONLY WEEKLY GAY GUIDE NEWS
Rachel Pegg visits Ghetto, one of Brighton’s newest venues, to find out what the quirky club has to offer othing stays the same for long on the gay scene. Faces change from month to month and each year brings a new crowd of students looking to stamp their mark on Brighton and make it their own. This town thrives on innovation, with new bars and clubs opening and existing venues changing what they do to keep customers happy, knowing that experimental punters are always looking for somewhere new to drink, dance and get up to no good. Ghetto opened just six months ago and has already come up with masses of ideas to keep clubbers coming back every night of the week, from free preclubbing Rock Band, to karaoke, cheap drinks, a quiz and birthday booths where they spoil you and your friends with champagne and sweets in your own private VIP 'hate' or 'love' area… (for free) The club innovators behind Ghetto – Tommy Moss and Jamie Wilton – took over a basement venue in St James’s Street that had a long history of being part of the Brighton scene. Tommy and Jamie made the club their own by welcoming absolutely everyone, gay or straight, male or female – so long as they have the right attitude. The club itself had a dramatic and funky makeover, and with the bar in a new spot it seems bigger and yet still small and intimate enough to feel like a cross between a boutique club and the best house party. Manager Rachel Ramshall-Smith said not everyone in town knows the venue, but once they find it, they can’t stop coming back. “When people realise we are here, the feedback is amazing." Ghetto is one of the best places to ride out the credit crunch – door charges are just £4/3 from Thursday to Saturday and from Monday to Wednesday entry is free. It is happy hour every day 5.30pm–8.30pm, with most drinks £1.50, and even full price drinks barely touch your wallet. Rachel says: “Our prices are dirt cheap – two pounds for a vodka.”
Student Pride More than 1,000 students from 20 universities attended National Student Pride in Brighton. The weekend involved debate, drinking and dancing. Revenge nightclub hosted a pre-Pride party on Saturday 7 March. The main event at Oceana the following day was officially opened by Garry Peltzer-Dunn, Mayor of Brighton and Hove. A Question Time-style debate was chaired by Wes Streeting, president of the National Union of Students. Panellists included Chris Bryant, Deputy Leader of the House of Commons, Aled Jones, producer from the Chris Moyles Show, Rev Debbie Gaston of Brighton Metropolitan Community Church and Jane Czyzselska, editor of women’s magazine DIVA. Among the topics discussed were gay marriage, trans issues, LGBT activism and BBC homophobia. There were also market and trade stalls, workshops, book reading and live music. In the evening students returned to Revenge for free pizza and music from Doll and The Kicks, followed by a bar crawl and a party at Digital with Jodie Harsh and Frankmusik. Student Pride chair Tom Guy said: “It went really well.” Tom helped to found Student Pride when he was a student at Oxford Brookes University in 2005 as part of a response to a university Christian Union talk on ‘Homosexuality and the Bible’. He is now a postgraduate student at Brighton University. It has not been decided whether Student Pride will return to Brighton next year.
Bullying survey A major survey of primary and secondary school teachers revealed that homophobic bullying is rife. The YouGov survey discovered that homophobic bullying affects more than 150,000 gay pupils in British schools. The Teachers’ Report is the largest ever survey to ask teachers from both primary and secondary schools about anti-gay bullying. It found that
not only gay pupils experience homophobic bullying and name-calling – it also affects boys who work hard, girls who play sport, young people with gay parents and young people who are thought to be gay. Teachers said homophobic bullying was the most prevalent form of bullying after bullying because of weight. Read the full report at www.stonewall.org.uk

She says it how she sees it
Free Agents Friday, Channel 4, 10pm o not watch this with young children. It is rude, but surprisingly it hasn’t been too shockingly rude, which is nice as sometimes programmes can over do it a bit. This series follows Alex, a newly single talent agent as he tries to deal with the fact that his wife is now living with another man while he is homeless. Alex is played by Stephen Mangan – who I love, so this little review may potentially be quite biased, as I find him really funny. It is refreshing to watch a programme that follows the heartache of a man after a split in a relationship as opposed to a woman experiencing a split. Alex has two children who live with their mother and you get to see him struggle with the fact that he doesn’t get to see them very often. You also witness his discomfort at the idea that his ex has a new fella, who spends time with his children.
Films on TV Top tips for your week of flicks TUESDAY 17
Airplane! ★★★★✩ (1980, Film4 9pm. Dir Jim Abrahams and David Zucker) The classic slapstick comedy that spawned the Naked Gun series, as well as so many pretenders of the genre. Sending up the disaster movies of the 70s, Airplane sees Leslie Neilsen, Robert Hays and Julie Hagerty trying to land the flying circus, with Lloyd Bridges embraces comedy on the ground. Classic.
WEDNESDAY 18 Kind Hearts And Coronets ★★★★★ (1949, Channel 4, 1.20pm. Dir Robert Hamer) Alec Guiness’ tour de force preceded Peter Sellers’ Doctor Strangelove in playing most of the leads by a full 15 years. This Ealing comedy sees the entire D'Ascoyne family plotting to do each other in during their pursuit of an elusive inheritance. Dark but greatly enjoyable, an afternoon treat.
FRIDAY 20 The People Under The Stairs
Alex works in a talent agency, with a bunch of misfits who, as it turns out, are all just as lonely as him although they all actually have somewhere other than their cars to sleep at night. Alex finds company and friendship with his work colleague Helen. After a drunken one night stand they decide it would be best if they remain friends. In every episode you hope Alex and Helen see sense and get together. Both are newly single; Alex through divorce and Helen because her fiancé died. As well as seeing how Alex deals with being newly divorced you see how Helen is dealing with being freshly bereaved – mainly by continually having a glass of wine in one hand. This series won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. It’s a bit like Marmite, you will either love it or hate it. It certainly is adult humour and it is quite easy to dip in and out of so it doesn’t really matter if you miss a week here and there. Somehow the writers have managed to make two of the worst things you could ever imagine happening to you funny – albeit with black humour – but needless to say, they make a bizarre light out of a dark situation. There seemed to be a slight gap in our adult humour line up for TV evenings, with most comedies being replaced with sketch shows, so this comes as a refreshing change. Like I said before, this won’t be to everyone’s taste, but give it a go. Who knows, you may become a Steve Mangan fan too.
★★★★✩ (1991, Sci Fi, 11.20pm. Dir Wes Craven) After Freddy and before Scream came this one-off in the horror maestro’s canon. A neighbourhood kid breaks into a creepy house to try and steal
the funds to stop his ma from being evicted, only to find he’s not the first child guest of the freaky couple who live there.
Gosford Park ★★★★★ (2001, Channel 4, 9pm. Dir Robert Altman) An A1 line-up of acting talent brings Julian Fellows atmospheric vision of life ‘upstairs‘ and ‘downstairs‘ at a country mansion in 1930s Britain to life. A weekend shooting party turns into a murder mystery – the film uses the whodunnit format to create a drama showcasing the tensions of the British class system. Makes Miss Marple look like a Saga advert.
MONDAY 23 Fried Green Tomatoes At the Whistle Stop Cafe ★★★★✩ (1991, Film4, 6.30pm. Dir Jon Avnet) A masterful narrative beautifully acted. This adaptation of Fannie Flags tale of two generations of Alabama women deals with love, death, family, marriage, racism, crime, memory, storytelling – without treating any of them lightly. It’s a masterclass in understated acting (Jessica Tandy) and skillful directing (Avnet). You might need hankies.
Airplane!, Film4, Tuesday 17, 9pm
tuesday 17 Holloway ITV1, 9pm Much has been made in fictional television of women’s prisons, from Bad Girls to Prisoner Cell Block H. With unprecedented access to the real thing, this is the first of three programmes showing the true story behind the bars of the largest women’s prison in Europe. From newbies to old lags. Quite fascinating.
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Five, 9pm It’s the last Grissom episode ever. He’s handed in his notice, this is the second in the two-parter and he’s packed as much Vegas sand as will fall through his fingers symbolically. All he’s got to do now is catch the copycat serial killer in a race against time to find a missing woman.
I’ve Never Seen Star Wars BBC4, 9.30pm A chat show that pushes its celebs, but nowhere they’re too unhappy going. So seems the format of Marcus Brigstocke’s latest project, inviting a guest to try five new cultural experiences – things that they have always previously avoided, from playing bingo to reading Proust. His first guest is Clive Anderson.

wednesday 18 Hero Animals Five, 7.30pm You know those stories that are really cautionary tales for kids to get them to stop doing stupid things? Here’s a true one. With a thankfully happy ending. The story of a young boy who fell head first into a gorilla enclosure at Jersey Zoo, only to be protected by a 200kg silverback. Eat your heart out Mowgli.
Law & Order: UK ITV1, 10.35pm Jamie Bamber is still confusing the Dickens out of us with his English accent after four seasons as American-voiced Lee Adama in Battlestar Galactica. No matter.

The New York teens are preening and bitching and life is such a drama. Just fab. This week Jenny makes friends with a model who encourages her to make a stand about Eleanor exploiting her ideas.

American Idol ITV2, 8pm It’s now time for the remaining acts to show what they’re worth.

Do they have more charisma than a wet dish mop? Can they sing? Hmm.
