William Tells Will Harris has a mix up on a mid-week bender

a distant morning has clearly been negated by an unspoken quest to sink enough free alcohol to blind a stoat. It is always like this. The last gallery party we went to, we were ejected from the premises after N was caught licking the art for a dare (“Bloody cheek!” she had raged, in a nearby pub. “It was hardly a Jackson Pollard.”). As far as I can remember, I’d ended that evening drunk-texting a lot of someone I shouldn’t haves, while N had ended it face-down on the floor of the night bus, groaning at me to tell the captain the “Who needs ship was going too fast. highbrow N and I have a very specific type of when you have relationship. We can go weeks, sometimes months a hi-ball?” without seeing each other, until – at some invisible signal – we will decide to embark on a mid-week bender so depraved, it’d have Caligula reclassified as a PG. Ours is a toxic friendship (well, not toxic; it’s actually about 40 per cent proof), but I know neither of us would be without it. With the stresses of modern life, I think you need a friend you can get properly pissed with, just like you need one who’ll mop your brow through the hangover, and another to give you tough love when the inevitable card receipts spring out of your wallet like an avenging force. I know some people get snooty about this; that they don’t class their drinking buddies as real friends. But I do. Hey, who needs highbrow when you have a hi-ball? Or two? And on the subject of having a ball, guess what? We always do. Image: Dan Evans www.idrawforfood.co.uk

t an art launch that is too trendy for me, my friend N and I are having what I imagine to be an incredibly high-brow conversation about Pol Pot, when she says something that shocks me. “This might surprise you,” says N, “but if I could go back in time, I would probably vote for him.” I look nervously around the gallery, hoping no one has heard my friend confess her support for a dead Cambodian mass-murderer. “But what about all the people he killed?” I hiss. “Darling, they reckon it was in the hundreds of thousands.” N looks confused. “The bloke off the X Factor? Murder?” In my head, cogs clunk wearily into place. “Paul Potts,” I say, “was on Britain’s Got Talent, not X Factor.” “That’s him,” says N. “The binman.” “Paul Potts was not a binman. He worked for the Carphone Warehouse.” “Oh,” says N, scouring the room for a cocktail waiter. “Who am I thinking of then? Oi, Mojito!” The waiter waits, one European eyebrow cranked skyward, as N and I laden ourselves with two hi-balls apiece like a pair of boozy Buckaroos. It is only a Tuesday night, but the prospect of hauling ourselves into work on

Morley Street death inquest, helicopter hunt for autistic boy, school joins science project

T

here is a sad anniversary marked in Brighton’s Wild Park at this time of the year and it’s been going on now since 1987, the year after the murders.

Relatives and friends gathered at a permanent memorial to nine-yearold playmates Karen Hadaway and Nicola Fellows, strangled in the park by a sex fiend who has never been brought to justice. Their gathering doesn’t attract the same publicity or attention as it once did but the pain and longing for justice felt by the mourners is as strong as ever, and they will never rest. Russell Bishop, 44, was acquitted of the murders but he is now serving life for abducting, molesting and attemping to murder a sevenyear-old girl near Devil’s Dyke in 1990. Bishop is one of the longest serving prisoners in Britain not serving a sentence for murder. Sussex Police came in for flack for not nailing the park killer but they too haven’t given up and even now appeal for new information. They were roundly criticised over another murder which is causing equal amounts of pain among the victim’s family and friends.

Jay Abatan, a father of two young children, suffered serious head injuries after being punched outside a nightclub in Morley Street, Brighton, in 1999. No one was brought to book and a long-awaited inquest has now ruled what everyone knew, that he was unlawfully killed. The court hearing did, however, give Jay’s family and friends a platform to call again for justice and it gave Sussex Police a chance to appeal for fresh evidence. The force was accused of more than 50 failings in an independent investigation of their handling of the inquiry and to some it wasn’t surprising that they declined to be interviewed after the inquest. Others felt they should have braved the slings and arrows. One senior officer told Latest 7: “We have a good record and reputation for handling and clearing serious crime but when it goes wrong we have to be big enough to stand there and take what’s coming.” What do you think? Email comment@thelatest.co.uk. In other news, a seven-year-old autistic boy was found safe and well after a two-hour hunt in Stanmer Park – officers acted promptly and the force helicopter joined in – and it was refreshing to see every member of the public in the park volunteer to look for the boy. The city may not receive the kind of local TV news coverage that it deserves but it has featured a lot in other programmes – Brighton College played host to BBC’s

latest inbox comment@thelatest.co.uk [Re Stephen Grant review at www.thelatest.co.uk/7] Stephen Grant’s sets are always worth catching. This set unavoidably had to cover his much publicised divorce. And most who attended expected just that. That said he did state he would not cover the topic again, so for this reason alone it was a very unique show Thumbs up from me. Tristan Tristar, via www.thelatest.co.uk/7 [Re Al Murray review L7497] I have liked Al Murray for a number of years and watched him whenever he was on the TV. He is one of the very few comedians who make me laugh out loud while watching on the TV and re-runs of live shows on the Dave channel. So I finally got the chance to see him live in Brighton on 13 October. All I can say is I was very very dissapointed. He has lost his edge and half way through a number of people got up to get drinks. I did enjoy the evening but I WILL NOT pay to see him again but will go out of my way to watch the old shows on Dave. Dave, via www.thelatest.co.uk/7 [Re Jeff Beck review at www.thelatest.co.uk/7] I was lucky to be in attendance that day. Beck rarely plays a melody the same way twice and his unique style is the driving force behind the entire band. William, via www.thelatest.co.uk/7 [Re Jeff Beck review at www.thelatest.co.uk/7] A most incredible evening’s display of guitar playing, by any standards. Nobody else in rock music even comes close. That show was certainly one to remember. Phil, via www.thelatest.co.uk/7

But I would like to take this opportunity to reassure residents that, whilst there will inevitably be some tough times ahead, we have been preparing for this for quite some time now. Through the value for money review we set up last year, we have a credible plan to deliver savings of more than £50million over the next four years, and this is already starting to pay dividends. This is in addition to the £30million we have saved over the last three years. And the intelligent commissioning approach we have put in place, and which officially began on 1 November, will help us to concentrate our resources on the frontline services which residents value most. George Osborne did also sweeten the pill of reduced funding with other measures that are most welcome. For example, he announced an end to the so-called ring-fencing of revenue grants – giving us much greater flexibility in how we spend our money. He also confirmed that the council tax freeze for next year will go ahead and that there will be greater

funding for schools and social care for adults – two extremely important areas for us. On a lighter note, I was delighted once again at how the White Night celebrations went last weekend. I attended several of the events during the evening and everybody seemed to be having a fantastic time. White Night is only in its third year but it has rapidly become one of the highlights of our cultural calendar. Long may it continue! Pic: Steve Glashier

ast week, George Osborne delivered his long-awaited Comprehensive Spending Review, laying out the Coalition Government’s plans to pay off the country’s largest peacetime budget deficit. For councils such as ours there was mixed news. As expected, the block grant which we receive from central Government will be reduced significantly over the next four years. This will inevitably mean having to make some difficult decisions about how much funding particular services get as we begin our budget setting process for next year.

Antiques Roadshow, hosted by Sussex resident Fiona Bruce, and the programme attracted more than six million viewers. And the city was the scene of another TV hit, this time an episode of Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me. Meanwhile, Balfour Junior School is the first in the city to take part in a groundbreaking science project that involves monitoring vehicle emissions near schools. Brighton & Hove City Council has joined with Imperial College, London, and Duvas technologies to run a project aimed at improving understanding of the effects of transport activity on local air quality. Community scientists have been working with the teachers to develop lessons and pupils have visited Imperial College and the Science Museum. Accompanying educational programmes will also help the children develop an understanding of the biodiversity in their local environment. Data was collected around Walk to School Month (11-29 October) and the results will be displayed on screens in the school’s IT suite. Pupils are also carrying out experiments with a portable unit that they can move around the playground to see how emissions travel. The project is providing many unique opportunities to develop pupils’ interest in science, using new technology and practical data. Just goes to prove that it’s not all hot air that’s comes out of city hall.

The team are on the hunt for surplus materials and to get the word out about the programme. The types of jobs include kitchen and bathroom renovations, renovating bedrooms etc (it is unlikely that they will be taking on very large jobs that require construction of walls or planning permission due to time scale). They say, “Our team includes professional reclaimers! Using reclaimed and salvaged goods our team tackle the budget to make sure you get far more for your money. We want people who are looking to renovate a bedroom, bathroom or kitchen but can't quite afford it.

BRIGHTON ACTOR TREADS THE LFF CARPET Walking up the red carpet last week for the premiere of West Is West at the BFI London Film Festival was its star, Brighton based actor Emil Marwa. The film, which is the sequel to popular film East Is East, sees Emil reprising his role as Maneer Khan – one of the Khan sons. Set in 1975, five years after the first film, West Is West picks up the tale of the Khan family as it struggles to survive in Manchester.  Sajid, the youngest son, is feeling the pressure of his father’s tyrannical insistence on Pakistani tradition, and from bullies in the schoolyard. In a desperate attempt to ‘sort him out’, his father decides to pack him off to the family he abandoned 35 years previously and son Maneer in the Punjab.  It is not long before Ella Khan (Mrs Khan No2) with a small entourage from Salford, swiftly follows to sort out the mess, past and present. Filmed on location at the end of last year, the film is due out early in 2011 – watch this space for more details.

L7 INTERVIEW 11

LIFE IN THE DARK LANE

brilliantly. “People often miss the humour in my songs – Varieté is quite maudlin. But then I’m strong on maudlin! I’m always trying to create a human melodrama with sarcasm and cynicism. I’m sending myself up a little bit; it’s written for people my own age, people who may be a little bit disillusioned, asking themselves ‘where do I fit into things’. I like songs that tell a story. “I’m very eclectic in what I like – I remember very well growing up in the ‘60s and watching shows like Ready Steady Go! and Thank Your Lucky Stars. By the early ‘70s I was a teenager and started getting into Free, Jethro Tull, Van der Graaf Generator and, of course, glam. And then I got into punk, post-punk, early electro...” There, it seems, he draws a full stop. Not much has tickled his fancy since the heady days of punk, new wave and post-punk. “I don’t listen to new music much, although I have been listening to Fleet Foxes. I like retro songs. Since I got my MP3 player I put it on shuffle, so I’m hearing things from all my life.” But it’s really the songs of Bowie and Jacques Brel (whose estate cited Almond as the best living interpreter of Brel’s songs) that have resonated with him more than anyone else over the years. “Brel sings about life and death and plays a part and a character, and that’s what I try and do. When I perform I do play the part of my character and exaggerate it.”

It’s nearly 30 years since Marc Almond burst onto the scene with Soft Cell’s version of ‘Tainted Love’. The star talks to Jeff Hemmings about finally making a comeback

M

arc Almond met Dave Ball at Leeds Ploytechnic and together formed the synth-pop duo Soft Cell. Their combination of urban drama and peep-show sleaze set to an electronic beat garnered them a string of hits including the Number One smash ‘Tainted Love’, ‘Say Hello Wave Goodbye’, ‘Torch’, ‘What!’ and ‘Soul Inside’. After nine Top 40 singles and four Top 20 albums, the duo split in ’84. But the fragile Almond has not had it all his own way, suffering nervous breakdowns as a teenager, (as well as a suicide attempt). While in Soft Cell, he went to rehab in the ’90s for major drug abuse. “You’d have to be up at five scrubbing the toilet and I loved that,” he says about his time there. “I always thought, ironically, that I’d be fantastic in the Army [his father was in the Army] because it’s regimented.” Almond was then in a major motorbike accident in 2004. “I didn't know where I was or what had happened,” he recalls. “I’d been unconscious for 10 days. First, I heard my mother’s voice, then my sister’s. Then I heard the voice of a friend...” For some time, it wasn’t clear if he would ever recover, with brain damage a distinct possibility. But he thinks giving up drugs, cigarettes and alcohol a few years before may have ultimately saved him. Conversely, the accident had a big influence on his output and it wasn’t until recently that he started writing again... “When I was recovering I didn’t feel like writing songs at all. But then suddenly a lot of ideas started coming to me; stuff about getting older, your place in the world, being nostalgic and how it has a place in our lives. You know, we tend to be retrospective and look to the comforts of the past.” However, Almond found he’d forgotten how to sing! So he had to turn to a teacher for help. “I was a wheezing, whispering person who’d lost a lot of weight and couldn’t breathe properly. My teacher brought my confidence back.” He also uses Tea Tree oil: “It’s good for lubrication and singing,” he confides.

Almond began making the odd live appearance again opposite stars such as Antony Hegarty. He finally regained his mental and physical health and was able do a fulllength solo show in 2007. Ever since then, he’s being working hard making new music and performing constantly, including releasing an album of songs by the Russian Vadim Kazim. His most recent album, Varieté, showed Almond back to his best, his voice clear and pure, telling tales of life in the dark lane... the seamy and painful, in which Almond wallows so

“I still really enjoy singing ‘Tainted Love’ and ‘Say Hello Wave Goodbye’”

His next project is an operetta: “It’s a one-man show with 16 songs that detail the journey through the Great Plague of London in the 1600s. It’s an incredibly difficult and modern opera. I’m not entirely sure if I can do it! But it’s a challenge and keeps me going.” For this tour Almond is celebrating 30 years in the business, singing songs old and new. “YouTube allows people to easily re-discover things, and my show is a bit like that. It’ll be a cross-section of things I did, some of which I got right and some of which I got wrong. It’ll be a fun show though, rather than angsty. I’ll be doing a few things I haven’t done for years and years. But I still really enjoy singing ‘Tainted Love’ and ‘Say Hello Wave Goodbye’.” Marc Almond, Saturday 13 November, De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-On-Sea.

SUCCESS & THE CITY

Grand designs Si Beales takes a regular look at some of Brighton & Hove’s most successful businesses. This week he discovers a design led shop for grown ups – Junkfunk in the North Laine

T

here’s something just a little bit different about Junkfunk on Gloucester Road – something a tad more sophisticated. Maybe it’s the fact that founder Huw Williams comes from a graphic design background. Or that Michael Robson, his fellow director, has extensive marketing and retail experience, but they seem to be just a bit more grown up and well conceived. The key to the success of their business is they know what they like and understand the tastes of their ever growing list of customers. The essence of the business is gifts, homeware and Tshirts but always with a design led and often typographical approach. Take their T-shirt collection. Designed by Huw they are quirky and humorous but not ‘in your face’. The muted colour palate and original slogans make a change from the gaudy brashness of the high street. And it seems like they are more than just my cup of T, as Junkfunk have been wholesaling their T-shirt collection to selected stores in the UK, Europe and Japan since 2003 and are planning to take the brand to a key trade show in Berlin. This design led, typographical theme continues throughout the store – whether it’s books, cards and badges by David Shrigley, ceramics by Keith Brymer Jones, or watches by Mr Jones and Martin Larsen, there is a focus on quality of design and manufacture. Junkfunk also carry a small collection of women’s dresses by Emily & Fin. Plus there are innovative accessories like a belt made from recycled bicycle tyres. As often as possible they try to work with

local designers and source ethical products. Coming soon will be a new T-shirt design by celebrated graphic designer, Si Scott, which will complement the existing in-house designs. Junkfunk are also extremely active online and their website is fast becoming a vital component of their business. But it’s the store which is the showcase to their unique approach to design led, quality products. They have really made a home for themselves in the North Laine since they opened in 2007. And they have now become an integral part of the design led character of many of the stores in Gloucester Road. Junkfunk is a great example of a vibrant and successful Brighton business – exactly what this feature is all about – and with their ambitious designs on the future they are undoubtedly a business to look out for.

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD & DRINK 17

Food & Drink Andrew Kay gets his laughing gear around Thai Tapas at Brighton’s Giggling Squid

Thai me down A

nyone who knows me well will tell you I am the most terrible giggler. You need only say the word ticklish near me and I’m off. It’s not funny either. Well, it is funny in as much as I am laughing, but it hurts and it makes me cry. When I saw the signs going up for Giggling Squid it also made me laugh. I loved the name and hoped I would love the food too. Over the last few months or so I have popped in several times and given the menu a bit of a thrashing. The idea of taking the word tapas and applying it to different cuisines is not one that always works. I have been served ‘tapas’ that in my book were nothing of the sort. They were simply mean portions of food that could only work when served in generous measures. But at Giggling Squid the concept works well. I guess, in part, this is because some of the dishes are indeed street foods that you would buy at the roadside and eat whilst on the hoof. Not that I have been to Thailand and done that, but I have a rather romantic vision that this is how one would eat in strange countries. I did it in India quite successfully without getting food poisoning and I once had a portion of mushy peas with mint sauce in a Nottingham market.

Mr R, on seeing I had the Starving option, went for the Hungry Squid Tapas Set. I could immediately see why as his came with rice (he is a keen fan of a definite carbohydrate element to any meal). On his platter chicken satay was delivered with more of the tasty little spring rolls and a Thai chicken green curry with the much wanted rice. It put a very large smile on his face... But not as large as the smile generated by the ice cream we had to follow. The owners have sourced ice cream from Boho Gelato in The Lanes. Not happy with anything available off the shelf or from wholesalers, Giggling Squid challenged Boho to create ice cream exclusively for them. We tried a sorbet of lemon and ginger, which was a superb burst of zinging freshness and perfect in texture too. It did that clever thing of cleansing the palate and also feeling like a proper pudding. But top marks go to a black sesame seed ice cream. It was the strangest of colours, a pale, slightly lavenderish grey speckled with black seeds. But my word did it deliver in flavour – not great thumping flavour but perfectly balanced sweet nuttiness. I must say the chef, who is a charming lady, goes to great lengths to make every dish look superb. There are carved vegetables at every turn and they are good ones too, not the familiar crude, rose-shaped carrot. But if I had one criticism it would be that the ice cream was over decorated and would have tasted and looked better left to its own devices. Sorry if that sounds mean but it really doesn’t need anything with it. So full marks to Giggling Squid. I look forward to trying more dishes from their very reasonably priced menu in the evenings when the platters are not available. Giggling Squid: 11 Market Street, Brighton BN1 1HH, 01273 737373 129 Church Road, Hove BN3 2AE, 01273 771991 The George Hotel, 58 High Street, Crawley, RH10 1BS, 01293 530455 Where is the best ice cream in Brighton? andrew@thelatest.co.uk follow me on twitter

Giggling Squid looks good too. It has a clean, modern look that ignores their national taste for all thing that glister on a background of vibrant vermillion. Drift wood is the key motif and it’s done well. At lunchtime the menu offers platters of pre-selected tapas. It’s a great idea, I nearly always order too “When Thai beef much when dining this way and certainly do when dining alone. I salad is made well it’s always want to try a selection of one of the sexiest dishes and it simply isn’t possible when dining solo. The Giggling Squid platters are an ideal solution and, I dishes I know and this have to say, are extremely good was pretty damn sexy” value too. We settled in on a very windy Sunday afternoon and started with two Diet Cokes; how good is that? Well, not good if you have a hatred of diet cola but great if, like me, you love the real thing served in bottles. The menu is easy to deal with. You can choose tapas al la caret or go for a tapas set. I read through and discovered that for a very reasonable £7.50 the Starving Squid Tapas Set had everything I wanted. I love Thai beef salad – that irresistible mix of fish sauce and chilli with fresh mint and coriander poured over slices of rare beef. When it’s made well it’s one of the sexiest dishes I know and this was pretty damn sexy. I am also equally enamoured of salt and pepper squid. There was plenty of it too and it was crisp and tender. Thai spring rolls and dumplings were also delicious, once again crisp and piping hot, but above all tasting clean, demonstrating that the oil used in the kitchen was absolutely fresh.

CHRISTMAS PARTIES

It’s a mad, mad Christmas Forget your typical Christmas party. Hand over the reins to the Mad Crush events team to arrange a night to remember With all the annual hype it can be easy to lose track of the fact that Christmas is actually a festival – one of life’s all too rare opportunities to put work aside and revel in some well deserved fun. But the problem with your average Christmas party is that all too often it’s an anticlimax of dodgy looking sausage rolls, some mange-afflicted tinsel and an atmosphere so depressing you end up drinking the equivalent of your own body weight just to get through it. This year, choose something different, hold onto your reindeers and join the Mad Crush team of flamboyant creatives for their inauguration Ultimate Christmas Party. Yule not regret it! www.madcrush.co.uk

Brighton Dome is home to a long weekend of Shakespearean activity, finds Andrew Kay

M

acbeth, Macbeth, Macbeth! There, it’s out of my system now and I will be able to resist inciting the wrath of the ghosts when I enter Brighton Dome to see the centrepiece of this long weekend of Shakespearean events. The inventive Macbeth on offer is a powerfully re-imagined version of the Scottish play by renowned Polish company Teatr Piesn Kozła (Song of the Goat Theatre). This production started life during the Royal Shakespeare Company’s complete works season at Stratford upon Avon, and has been two years in the making. The company has an ensemble drawn from the UK, Sweden, Finland and France as well as Poland. They have enjoyed two award-winning runs at Edinburgh in 2004 and 2006, leading to a host of international invitations including New York, Sydney and London seasons. Using eight extraordinary performers, the production explores the musicality and muscularity of Shakespeare’s poetry and the colours and sounds of his extraordinary language. The story is there, the characters are there, but in witnessing the drama realised through a uniquely imaginative physical and vocal language we understand the story anew. In contrast, Shakespeare à la Carte, the hit of Brighton Festival 2008 returns, with two special ‘supper club’ performances on Thursday 25 and Friday 26 November. A waiter takes your food and drink order along with your pick

of the Shakespeare menu and then some of the best bits and a few surprises are served up at your table and all around the restaurant. Festival favourites Hydrocracker, the company that gave us The Erpingham Camp (Brighton Festival 2009) and New World Order (Brighton Festival 2007), perform from a menu of Shakespeare’s greatest hits with a side order of Mexican food. And for those amongst us with a strong constitution it all ends in time to catch Macbeth, so it is possible to have tacos with Titania or burritos with Banquo in this tasty treat. Teatr Piesn Kozła (Song of the Goat Theatre): Macbeth, performed in English, Thursday 25–Saturday 27 November, 8pm, £15/£12.50. Special offer: book Shakespeare à la Carte and Macbeth for £25.

With Jeff Hemmings

CAPTAIN HORN BLOWER A

t 71, Hugh Masekela remains a musician of phenomenal grace and power, and an articulate and forthright spokesman for the people of South Africa, a country he was exiled from for 30 years. He’s back in the UK for a short tour, which also features three doyennes of mbaqanga, the Mahotella Queens. Inspired by the anti-apartheid activist Trevor Huddleston, his school chaplain, Masekela became a teenage trumpet prodigy. “When I was six years old my parents tried to ween me off the gramophone and got me piano lessons. And when I was 13 I saw Young Men With A Horn (a film featuring Kirk Douglas playing the part of Bix Beiderbecke) and which featured Harry James playing the trumpet – he had beautiful tones. I then said to Trevor Huddleston that if I could get a trumpet I wouldn’t bother anybody anymore. So, he got me a trumpet and a trumpet teacher.” Masekela has had many career highlights including, while still living in South Africa, being part of the orchestra for the infamous King Kong musical that first brought South African culture to the outside world in the ’50s (it went to the West End for a couple of years), appearing at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, and becoming the first African to top the American singles chart with 1968’s ‘Grazing In The Grass’. In 1987 he toured the world with Paul Simon and Miriam Makeba (his wife) for the legendary Graceland tour.

Trumpet player and activist Hugh Masekela is a true legend in his home country...

It was the Sharpeville massacre of 1960 that prompted Masekela to leave for the UK before embarking for America, where he enrolled at the Manhattan School of Music. “Miriam got me into that school – she had many friends including Harry Belafonte... But in 1963 I was ready to go back, but Harry took me aside and said, ‘with that kind of mouth you can’t just disappear. Stay, and try and make a name for yourself here. Mandela has just been sentenced to death and you want to go back there!?’” Masekala eventually did return though. “In ‘89 a friend of mine said, ‘bring your things to the border – you’ll be coming home next year.’ I thought he was joking, but both Mandela and Miriam called me in May 1990, and said ‘come home’. “Mandela was a symbol of the soul of South Africa and musicians express the soul of the people. The phenomenon of South Africa is the interest that grew over a 20 year period, until 1985 when it seemed there was no artist or release who didn’t include either ‘free South Africa’ or ‘free Mandela’ on their music. That put pressure on administrations around the world... And Graceland probably did more thany other musical project to help – it was a kaleidoscope of South African culture without the preaching, and reached millions and millions of people.” Hugh Masekela, Concert Hall, Brighton Dome, 16 November

Dir: Robert Schwentke

RED – Retired and Extremely Dangerous – is how Bruce Willis’ retired blackops ex CIA agent Frank Moses finds himself. And a bit bored with the quiet life. However, the excitement he gets when he’s framed for an assassination is no antidote, and he quickly goes on the run, assembling his old crew together to prove thier innocence and to dodge more than a few bullets aimed their way.

ew comedy nights pop up in Brighton reasonably frequently, but this one out in Eastbourne stands out as one with a few differences. Firstly, it’s been set up by the lovely, Perrier nominee character comedy performer Joanna Neary. You may recognise her from your telly, appearing in popular shows such as Armando Iannucci’s Time Trumpet and Johnny Vegas’s Ideal. If you’ve seen any live comedy around Brighton town over the last few years you will already know that she’s great fun and assured quality. And now she’s booking her very good and extremely funny friends for our delight. Jo Neary’s guests for this first evening of Eastbourne comedy at The Lamb is the second reason Tthis show stands out. Reading the line-up is like reading a list of ingredients for a black forest gateau – all lovely and promising a taste-combustible final product. Joe Lycett, Chortle’s Best Newcomer 2010, is joined by the truly lovely and engaging George Egg to kick off proceedings, supporting the truly delightful headliner Dan Antopolski. Star of television’s Hyperdrive; an internet success with his very funny ‘Sandwich Rap’ on YouTube; and an award-winning comedian, Dan is well worth going to Eastbourne for.

That Comedy Thing has been thought out and conceived with care.

L7 Under review Read reviews of every show at the Brighton Comedy Festival at www.thelatest.co.uk JOHN PEEL’S SHED

In 2002 John Osborne won a box of records from John Peel’s shed, and this gently inspirational solo show (a companion piece to his 2009 history of British radio, Radio Head) is the story of what happened next. An office drone turned poet, Osborne occupies the same corner of stand-up as Daniel Kitson – one lovingly littered with coffee mugs, doodled on volumes of Larkin and laboriously worked out playlists. His whimsy is acute, his loveliness far from toothless; and though his show lacks the emotional and linguistic density of Kitsons’, it’s enjoyable to imagine him layering it up over time, perhaps telling us about the fate of punk covers band Oizone, playing more of those records... Because more than anything, this is a show about the pleasure of having your own personal project – and leaves you itching to get out into the world, or back to your bedsit, and discover your own. Upstairs At Three And Ten, 23 October JJJJJ Bella Todd

HAL CRUTTENDEN

An hour spent with Hal Cruttenden is to be filled with good cheer, and joy, as he finds the delight in the most unlikely of places, from being flattered that he’s not considered too old to be sold drugs ‘but thanks for asking’, to wondering why more of our heroes can’t be simply ‘nice people’. Indeed, such was the pleasant atmosphere, it was quite a shock when he delivered a slightly off-colour gag about Vikings (‘too nasty, too soon?’ he mocked). Otherwise, this was a friendly, very funny set where the subject of Cruttenden’s ire was very often Cruttenden himself. Pavillion Theatre, Brighton Dome, 23 October JJJJJ Andrew Allen

THE HUMBLE QUEST FOR A UNIVERSAL GENIUS

A brilliant concept hilariously executed. With universal genius being in short supply, comedian Mark Allen has set about finding contemporary counterparts to Da Vinci’s Jack of all trades and master of all from his fellow comics. On this night it was the turn of comic and storyteller Sarah Bennetto and local comic Robin Buckland to compete in variously themed rounds to see who would be the evening’s universal genius. With rounds covering such diversity as ‘wit’ and ‘hunting’, involving short

films, mime and poetry written as we watched, this was engaging from start to finish. I loved it all. Upstairs At Three And Ten, 22 October JJJJJ Victoria Nangle

PAUL DIELLO

Paul Diello welcomed an intimate audience with a sundry set that was bursting with unmistakable talent. His note perfect vocals, blue eye shadow and swept haircut at first appeared ostentatious, but his open appreciation and amusing stories of social mishaps were enough to win over the most sceptical of onlookers. His songs, which mostly consisted of ballads and a few Damian Rice covers, were transfixing and sometimes moving. Supported by a guitarist, violinist and backing vocal, the ensemble did not miss a beat and his host of ‘friends’ entered the stage with their diverting contributions. Iambic Arts Theatre, 23 October JJJJJ Simon Robb

RADIO CITY THEATRE

This unusual show takes you back to the days of Sunday lunch radio comedy and theatre. The company gave brilliant performances of the clipped and mannered styles of that era and their frantic attempts to provide all the sound effects were hilarious. At times it seemed to drag a little but the new addition of a film with ‘dubbed’ sound was a lift after the interval. The introduction of a theremin was inspired and added real period detailing. In fact, attention to period detail is what makes this show and perhaps a little of that is lost when seen on a large stage and not in a cabaret setting. Theatre Royal Brighton, 24 October JJJJJ Andrew Kay

DARWIN DEEZ

French born support act Naïve New Beaters were the kind of feel-good party band you’d want to play at your birthday – the perfect accompaniment to oddball Darwin Smith and his band, whose unique approach to gigging involved playing two or three bouncy Strokes-esque numbers before downing instruments for a loosely-choreographed ’80s-style conceptual dance-off. This was amusing the first time. Even funny the second, third and fourth times, but as the night wore on it began to feel like there was a little more padding than substance. A memorable experience, however, and Darwin himself is a new antihero in the making. Digital, 22 October JJJJJ Isaac Howlett

PUNCH DRUNK SEANN WALSH: I’D HAPPILY PUNCH MYSELF IN THE FACE

23 October, Corn Exchange, Brighton Dome JJJJJ

I

n a short space of time this Brightonian has risen from obscurity (his first gig ever was in November 2006) to the fully-fledged comedy circuit, traversing the country, appearing on programmes such as Mock The Week and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and establishing himself as a name to watch. It’s a heartening story, and when one witnesses such a journey, it brings home how only a tiny number actually make it when they crawl out of the womb marked ‘aspiring hopeful’. So, what do we actually make of Mr Walsh now that he is strutting the stages of the comedy circuit and his set has stretched from five minutes to this one-hour show? Part of the Walsh appeal is the everyday, yet quirky, mundanity of life: from how to react when you stumble in the street to micromeals; from cookery programmes to Jordan; and from three-door cars to jogging. These topics have a universal appeal of sorts, and laughter comes easily in the hands of the confident, and engaging Walsh, a comic who has a very keen eye for detail, superb comic timing, and

can match his verbal witticisms with physical comedy – an area that he is bringing to the fore more and more. And this set had been adapted somewhat for his home town; references to Brighton abounded, with obvious bits of spontaneity in there too most of which worked well. Also appealing was his pretend slackness, his self-deprecating apathy, laziness and unfitness (‘I am a man who gets out of breath grating cheese’), much of this borne of a cynical outlook on life and a profound wish to stay out of the ‘rat-race’. That’s exactly what many of us want, too, but only a few of us have the raw talent and the – rather perversely – dedication to see this through. That in itself is appealing, and why many of us warm to his superficial looking shambolic nature. Walsh is young, and there is the ‘young-man-giggling-on-weed’ aspect of his topics... there’s no doubt that he is treading on water, subject matter-wise – and hopefully it won’t be long before he tackles weightier topics and showcases an edgier side that, for those who know him, know is there.

Why not, Gromit?

nearly got eaten during my run this morning. It’s not every day I can say that – the most ferocious creature I encounter on my runs is normally the cocker spaniel at the end of my road who really doesn’t like me for some reason. But this week I’m in Florida.  I haven’t been to the States in over 15 years and I was quite excited at the prospect of doing some running while I was over here (along with all the walking and queuing for theme park rides). I’d been warned that any body of water bigger than a puddle would have alligators in it and that they came out at dawn and dusk. So on the first morning, I set off at 7am, just as the sun was rising. There is a lake very close to the villa but on the first day I saw nothing bigger than a cricket “Gators run at 30 (which was a fair size!). The next day I went out again and came miles an hour but I across three large heron-like birds figured I had a better who seemed fairly interested in me but posed no threat.  chance of outrunning So by now I was fairly relaxed and ran a bit closer to the edge of him than beating him the lake. That was when I ran into him. There was a rustle of long in a fight” grass, then, 10 yards in front of me, out scurried a gator. A big one. I stopped. He stopped. I looked at him. He looked at me. He opened his mouth. I ran the mile back to the house faster than I have ever run a mile! Gators run at 30 miles an hour but I figured I had a better chance of outrunning him than beating him in a fight. Besides, it’s illegal to feed alligators in Florida and I didn’t fancy getting my arm bitten off and then having the other one handcuffed!  In hindsight, he may not have been as big as I first thought, but at least the cocker spaniel won’t scare me now. The next race I’ve got lined up is Hellrunner at the end of November and I really can’t wait! Cold, wet and muddy to the extreme. The temperature has been in the high 20s in Florida so I’m going to have to readjust to the chilly UK weather, but it’s going to be great fun. I also get to run a race with my wife, which I’ve never done before, so I’m looking forward to it twice as much!

What’s the most surprising thing you’ve come across while out running? comment@thelatest.co.uk

O

ne of the very best things about childhood is curiosity. It seems that as we get older our curiosity narrows into specific fields of interest. One mate might know all there is to know about dinosaurs but nothing about how to work an iPhone. Another may just be intersted in cakes and have not a care for the attractions of South America. It’s as if we suddenly saw Mastermind looming in adulthood and jumped to our specialist subjects in panic. In childhood everything is a wonder, and pressing ‘this button’ is the scariest and most fun thing in the world to do. This is why I love Wallace And Gromit. Wallace and Gromit ask ‘why?’ of everything. Why must I put my trouser legs on one at a time? Why can’t I just fall down a slide straight into my trousers with both legs going in at once? Why can’t an elephant’s farts power a television studio? That last one comes from this latest venture of the plasticine duo. The perfect vehicle for them. Wallace and Gromit’s World of Invention on BBC1 examines the old and the very latest in incredible inventions, from all those other people who ask ‘why’ a lot and have come up with their own answers. Plus, their quite fantastic and fascinating conclusions and journeys. The first episode focusses on inventions from and inspired by Mother Nature: giant helium penguins swimming through the air using the aerodynamics real live penguins use in the water, controlled by two men furiously concentrating on their shared remote control. There’s also a thrilling Dutch kinetic sculptor (that’s really the title he has), whose goal it is to create artificial creatures that will roam the beaches after he’s died, moving with their own kinetic energy gathered from the wind, and staying out of harm’s way through their own impulses. Quite a legacy. Both of these and more are investigated by real life

“Giant helium penguins... controlled by two men furiously concentrating on their shared remote” correspondents while Wallace and Gromit host the whole episode from back in the studio, powered by the aforementioned elephant gas. The wonder in science – the wonder at the world and all of its magic, which first made me want that highly dangerous automatic breakfast maker that Wallace had – is here in spades. Totally engaging and crossing over to attract big and small kids alike, it reminds me, if I’m honest, of how I felt in the ’80s sitting cross-legged in awe watching Tomorrow’s World. It’s so very good to be curious again. Wallace And Gromit’s World Of Invention, BBC1, Wednesday 3 November follow me on twitter

It kicks off with clips from yesterday’s marathon show of every contestant, then there’s an ensemble piece for fun, real pop stars try to sell thier latest single, and then you get the tense results and the sing off. All in a single hour hosted by Dermot.

Adrian Mole: The Cappuccino Years BBC4, 9pm Who remembers that Stephen Mangan did this before the seminal Green Wing? Not us! Still, it’s great to be reminded of Sue Townsend’s classic misfit character who has grown up to be an offal chef. Plus, Pandora Braithwaite is fighting for New Labour with gusto. Ahh, 1997.
