Calling banks to account Governments and courts seem reluctant to stop bad practices in banking but maybe new players will do their job for them. Frank le Duc reports

A

bank is preparing to open a branch in Brighton. This is unusual because for the past five years or so, banks and building societies have been closing branches. But Metro Bank, a newcomer to the high street, hopes to cash in on disenchantment with the way that existing banks do business. Having secured planning permission to open at the top of North Street, in the old American Express premises, Metro Bank aims to open its doors next year. It describes itself as the first new high street bank for more than a hundred years. Its programme of branch openings suggests a confidence in its formula. And that formula seems to be to combine banking’s traditional virtues and old-fashioned customer service with 21st century marketing techniques and the latest technology. Metro Bank promises: “Our model is • Unparalleled convenience and service • No product sales • Seven day-a-week branch banking • 24/7 call centres with real people answering real questions “Our goal is to eliminate every stupid bank rule.”

Brighton & Hove City Council leader Jason Kitcat on 25 years of Carelink Plus

M

ore than 6,000 vulnerable people across the city benefit from life-saving equipment as part of our community alarm service Carelink Plus. As part of the scheme, vulnerable people are given small alarm devices that they can use to automatically call us, 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The service recently celebrated its 25th birthday, but the service has developed over time. Newer devices can now detect sudden changes in barometric pressure – usually indicating a fall – and will

With so many shops and service providers going online and more businesses moving out of bricks and mortar for the virtual world, some wonder whether Metro Bank is swimming against the tide. At the Sussex University campus in Falmer, HSBC recently closed its branch. Only Barclays remains. If any set of customers is web savvy, it ought to be students. But despite the rise of internet banking, the thousands who live and work on the campus still need somewhere to physically take out cash. One former Sussex student said that HSBC’s presence had influenced his choice of bank when he started at the university. Years after graduating it was still his bank and it was where he turned to first for loans and financial services. Some customers may be fickle but, mostly, banks benefit from widespread inertia. At Sussex, Barclays looks like being the main beneficiary of HSBC’s decision to pull out before the start of the new academic year.” LOCAL FLAVOUR Banks and, in particular, building societies had a strong local flavour for many years. The Brighton and Sussex Building Society was a case in point. It

automatically alert the Carelink service, who can send someone to check on the person. Carelink Plus also works closely with the fire service and offers special smoke detectors, as well as organising home safety visits. It means older or vulnerable people who are more prone to falls, living on their own, or who have health needs can enjoy an independent life in their own home for longer. They are able to have confidence that should anything go wrong, help is always available at the touch of a button. Those who care for vulnerable people are able also able to run errands or spend time away, knowing

the big issue “Banks keep money circulating in the economy much as the human body needs blood to circulate if it is to survive” became the Alliance under the leadership of Lewis Cohen, a prominent Labour councillor on a Tory-dominated Brighton Council. In 1965 he became Lord Cohen and in 1985 his mutual became the Alliance and Leicester. It demutualised in 1997 and was taken over by the Spanish bank Santander in 2008. The picture in Brighton and Hove reflected the national picture, with a profusion of branch openings during

the property boom and especially after the financial reforms of the 1980s. Then came mergers and takeovers and building societies converting themselves into banks. Rationalisation followed and, with it, branch closures and job losses. Brighton and Hove has fewer than 50 bank branches now and barely half a dozen building society branches. Ten years ago there were more than 60. This process of decline accelerated

that the cared for person can raise an alarm if they need any help. Ninety-four-year-old Brighton & Hove resident John Telling recently had a fall, resulting in cuts and bruises to his head and becoming

unconscious. However his pendant automatically triggered an alarm to the Carelink Plus call centre. Staff contacted John’s family and friends, who were able to check on him. Paramedics arrived minutes later, taking John to A&E. He was discharged the following day and is now making a good recovery. John’s story is a great example of how we have supported people who want to continue living independently in their own homes, despite health issues or ageing.

during what became known as the credit crunch when banks appeared to stop lending. At this time banks even went bust. Lehman Brothers was the biggest failure. Northern Rock in Britain sent shockwaves through the system. The government spent billions propping up institutions that were said to be too big to fail. We are still paying the price. But the reality is that the banking crisis was one symptom of a wider set of economic problems.

Even so, banks and bankers have gone from being pillars of respectability to pariahs in the eyes of many. The former RBS chief executive Sir Fred Goodwin was vilified. And banking became a dirty word. Yet banks are vital for the economy. They help keep the money circulating much as the human body needs blood to circulate if it is to survive. In his criticisms, Business Secretary Vince Cable drew the distinction between retail or high street banking – handling people’s savings and loans – and investment or casino banking. The latter had increasingly relied on complex financial products that few people understood. Most of us have felt the consequences. Mr Cable is one of the few who can claim to have seen it coming like a modern-day Cassandra . BAD PRACTICES As the fall-out settles, there have been changes but too few to satisfy the most trenchant critics. Metro Bank is cited as an example of the market at work. As is the growth of internet banking. Regulators are requiring banks to operate with bigger safety margins – or capital requirements. One side-effect is to make it harder for new entrants like Metro Bank to bring competition to the sector. There are fears that as a consequence some bad practices are being protected. But First Direct, part of HSBC, is trying to set itself apart from the high street banks, as is the newly revived TSB brand – the result of Lloyds being forced to sell branches. Barclays in Brighton is part of an experiment to understand customers better. The Bank of Dave, featured on Channel 4, capitalised on disenchantment with the familiar firms in this sector. And Virgin has also spotted an opportunity to bring its own approach to a tarnished trade. And they are all a few mouse clicks away, hastening the demise of a bricks and mortar presence. In Brighton and Hove old bank branches have been turned into, among other things, a restaurant and a chip shop. Some might even consider these to be a better use of the buildings in question. They have a grandiose style that speaks of a confidence and status belonging to a bygone era. Newer branches share their look with the profusion of high street bookies. Mr Cable is concerned that they share a common culture too. Metro Bank has attracted account-holders by going back to basics. It may use modern design, 21st century technology and the latest marketing techniques. But its values sound old-fashioned in branches which look light and airy and people-friendly. It believes that its traditional customer-focused culture sets it apart from its rivals. The test will come when its Brighton branch opens next year. ■

BANKS SAFE A

cademic research published recently suggests that areas of high unemployment bear the brunt of bank closures. The Nottingham University study said: “Some of Britain’s poorest communities have been hit the hardest by the thousands of bank and building society closures happening every day.” The research report said that there was a net loss of nearly 7,500 bank and building society branches from 1989 to 2012 – or more than 40 per cent of all branches. In the past ten years in Brighton and Hove the figure is more than 10 per cent, excluding post office closures. Cash machines have become more widespread although not all of them allow free withdrawals. And with so many estates bereft of bank branches, customers are having to travel to the centre of town to take out money. At the same time the government has switched to paying benefits and pensions into accounts. As a result the poorest pay the highest price to take out their own money. Perhaps it is not surprising that some people turn to alternatives. Loan sharks target people on the main housing estates in Brighton and Hove. The interest rates can be eye-watering. Organisations such as the East Sussex Credit Union offer a better and more responsible deal. They are widely praised but their reach could be improved. Brighton and Hove City Council and Brighton Housing Trust (BHT) are among those who have tried to help those in most financial difficulty. Expert advisers have proved effective. There is an element of enlightened self-interest as they want rents paid – and in the council’s case, council tax bills too. The council has tried to bank ethically. Councillors had a row along party political lines about the subject last year when they debated investment strategy. Barclays was criticised by some. The Co-op was one of the preferred choices. But this month the future of the Co-op is likely to become clearer after regulators raised concerns about its financial position. As a result councillors were told last week by one of the council’s money managers: “We are keeping investments with Co-op Bank at an absolute minimum – it could be half a million pounds.” When asked why the absolute minimum overnight balance could be so much the council’s Audit and Standards Committee members were told: “The government has a habit of paying us and not telling us until after the event. The Co-op is our bank.” So payments from government departments go straight into the council’s account with the Co-op.

BRIGHTON WRITES

Andrew Kay

Sponsored by Bardsley’s Fish & Chips

Cut backs I

’m having a cull. Changes in my circumstances have meant a major rethink and in turn I have been taking stock of my life. It started, as so many things do, in the pub. I was drinking cocktails in Kemp Town with my food festival chums and wondering what to do with my vast collection of possessions. Their response was almost unanimous – “Sell them,” they cried. It was not what I wanted to hear. After so many years of collecting things (for collecting, the cynical amongst you may wish to substitute the word hoarding) the idea of flogging off my world goods and chattels is not appealing. After all, I have over the years already shed a host of treasured goods in my many moves and in random acts of generosity. I staggered home later that night after far too many cocktails. I was rather impressed by the fact that I did this by bus and managed to stop at a local convenience store where I purchased some pitta bread and taramasalata in the crazed belief that it would balance out the quantity of booze that I had downed. Once in the flat I sat, toasted pitta and pink slurry on my lap – on a plate of course – and surveyed my world. It’s a complex mix of beautiful things and crazy stuff that carry so many memories. The paintings and prints alone would bewilder most householders, but when you add to

“I purchased some pitta bread and taramasalata in the crazed belief that it would balance out the quantity of booze that I had downed”

that a vast collection of ceramics the prospect of starting to rationalise them kick-starts a kind of fear that only a collector on the brink of downsizing might feel. In addition to this there is the huge library of theatre programmes going right back to my late teens. A record of my love of the theatre and a testament to my very catholic tastes. Then there are the boxes of CDs, never listened to these days, but kept just in case... well, just in case. Did I mention the clothes? I know I have before. So many clothes, so many. I opened a wardrobe door and took a look. Very soon I realised that they were not all mine, some of them had been abandoned, rather a lot in fact. A light came on in my head, this was the obvious place to start. I went through to the kitchen, another area of over indulgent hoarding I confess, and fished out a roll of big black bin bags. Back at the wardrobe I started to cull, filing what was not mine into the black sacks and what was mine but was no longer the right size into a pile for recycling. I later took a very old Levi’s jacket to a charity shop and was amazed at how pleased they were to be given something that they described as vintage. I hadn’t considered that some of my wardrobe is so elderly that it now qualifies for the very fashionable vintage tag. Maybe I should have kept it. No, maybe not, after all, this was an exercise in reduction. A couple of hours later I had reduced the contents of three large cupboards to one and the piles of black sacks in the hall was so big that people wishing to raise moneys for charity might consider climbing it as a cheap alternative to Kilimanjaro. What is all that about anyway? Why go so far when you could mount the Great Orme or Snowdon or lie in a bath of baked beans for a few hours? I digress. There’s a long way to go. I need to cut down my kitchen ware, reduce my glassware and crockery, and even take that advice and sell some stuff. Would anyone be interested in a pair of size 11 Doc Marten’s – in bright orange?

Mark Brailsford wonders if Oscar is an Albion legend in the making

C

Vanessa Austin Locke Is it selfish to not want to have a baby? Vanessa starts the debate

R

ecent findings by Satoshi Kanazawa of The London School of Economics, have shown that women with a higher IQ are less likely to want to have children. This research appeared around the time Lucy Worsley said that she had been “educated out of the natural reproductive function”. Kanazawa has made his personal feelings about his discovery rather clear, writing in his book, The Intelligence Paradox, in a chapter entitled ‘Why Intelligent People are the Ultimate Losers in Life’, that “If any value is truly unnatural... it is voluntary childlessness.” It should be noted, as Sadhbh Walshe of The Guardian pointed out, that Kanazawa’s judgment has been discredited in the past because of a study in which he found black women to be less attractive. Nice. So, some are saying that intelligent women are not having kids because they have careers and some are saying they’re selfish and their high IQ is precisely why they should have kids. Regardless, there’s a new and interesting trend developing, and it piques my curiosity because I’m one of these ‘unnatural’ voluntarily childless women. There’s the potential to start mud-slinging here, but most of the papers have already done that, so let’s try to keep emotional responses out of it and think critically. Has anyone considered that our biological urges might be adapting to an over-populated and under-resourced world? Perhaps we’re evolving cerebrally, beyond our biology, to preserve humanity, and perhaps that’s natural too. Pic: Milan Jurek

ould Oscar Garcia turn out to be an Albion legend in the making? That last bloke, (what was his name again? Began with a P...), he did well enough, but this new fella, who comes across as a more understated version of Pep Guardiola, has certainly impressed in his first few months in charge. Gus Poyet deserves to go down as one of the great Albion managers, after all, he did lift Albion from near the bottom of League One to the verge of the Premier League. However, there are signs that Albion may have found an even bigger legend in the making in this phlegmatic and urbane head coach. It’s a bit like having a tumultuous first marriage, full of fights and fury, going through an acrimonious divorce, then finding yourself contented with the girl next door. It’s a tad too early to tell, of course, but arguably, the signs are all there that this second marriage in the ‘Cathedral of Dreams’ will last. The excellent hard fought draws at (supposedly Premier League standard teams) Reading and QPR, and the turnaround against Bolton Wanderers (a team made up of mostly top flight players, have made all the summer doom and gloom around the Amex dissipate somewhat. “One of the The truism at this stage of the season is to never look at the table until the clocks go back most uplifting and it is very early days. But whisper it quietly, Oscar’s impressive start has made this sights was the correspondent eye up the fixtures for the playpairing of two offs, it’s looking very promising thanks to the more nuanced señor in the hot seat. Oscar’s settled in well, he’s handled the grumpy relatives, wingers on the appeased the mother in law (Paul Barber) and pitch at the won over the kids. Marriage guidance with the League Managers Association doesn’t look like it same time” will be required.

“I’m one of these ‘unnatural’ voluntarily childless women”

Autumn playlist One of the most uplifting sights at the start of the Bolton match was the pairing of two wingers on the pitch at the same time, something Poyet only ever did when Albion were losing and only then when he used them as substitutes. That this is the first time in nearly two years that the Albion have come from behind to win a game at home, shows you how negative that approach can be at this level. The Championship is a tough league, but fortune favours the brave in this division and it is this approach that should serve Oscar Garcia’s team well. It is not just for this campaign that this approach matters; Oscar Garcia has been appointed not just to get Albion promoted to the Premier League, he has been given the remit to enable them to stay there. Therefore, this approach should be encouraged with half an eye on what might happen if Albion go up. The reason for this train of thought is this: having an established and progressive pattern of play is arguably how you achieve success long term in the top flight. You only have to look at Swansea to see proof of that. That Albion sit comfortably midtable during a period of time when there is a lengthy injury list and still managing to get draws away to teams of Premier League quality augurs well. Once CMS and Bridcutt return and Ulloa has served his suspension, this is going to be one hell of a squad to pick a team from. Let us hope CMS can slot in behind Ulloa and Bridcutt can provide the anchor for Buckley and Lua Lua to take to the wing in tandem. We could be about to witness something special.

Coming up The squad has been fortified of late with a pair of loan signings that may not appear to have set the pulses racing in the stands, but they may prove to be two of the most astute signings of the season in the Championship. Ward and Andrews have been excellent and when you factor in the heart-warming emergence of players such as Solly March and wonderfully impressive Rohan Ince, it’s hard to see why a lot of pundits left Albion out of their tips for promotion. So, with games against a poor looking Sheffield Weds and Yeovil but tough assignments against Nottingham Forrest and Watford to come, we could be about to show the rest of the division what this Albion team is made of. When the injury list clears up, as autumn deepens, we could be in for some vintage Albion displays that could rival bonfire night.

My reasons for not having children are first – selfishness. The word selfish has so many negative connotations, and it’s been used to torment women into being skivvies, but I try to own it. It doesn’t mean that I don’t help others, but it does mean that I take care of myself first so that I am of better service to others. Obsession with reproduction assumes that the continuation of the human race is what is best for evolution. What if the best thing for evolution were to let humanity decline? After all, the human race is only of value to itself. What was that about being selfish? My second reason for not having children is practical – there are too many children in the world already without loving homes. If I were going to have children, I’d adopt them. My third reason is economical – the cost of raising a child has risen 53 per cent since 2003 to £222,458. I wouldn’t want to have children, biological or adopted, unless I could offer them a certain standard of living and make them economically valuable. The final reason is terror – having watched my mother give birth twice (hippies) the thought of pregnancy and childbirth makes my eyes water. The miracle of childbirth? Miracle my **** – you’re trying to get something the size of a football through something the size of a hairpin? That, my friend, is what we call a design fault. So I, with my relatively high IQ and my fully functioning reproductive organs, would rather have fun and money than kids. But as far as Kanazawa is concerned, my ambition of being a stay at home mum with no kids and a cleaner makes me one of life’s losers. But why wouldn’t I have my cake and eat it too if I could? Maybe it’s my giant ego, but I think I can offer more to this world than kids. Whether or not that’s true remains to be seen.

donned my fedora and cape and joined in with the Spanish Day celebrations at Brighton & Hove Albion’s match against bottom of the league Bolton Wanderers on Saturday 21 September. The stadium was a sea of sombreros and Spanish flags as the crowd embraced players such as Inigo Calderon, David Lopez, Andrea Orlandi, Bruno Saltor and not forgetting new manager Oscar Garcia. I sat next to Oscar’s wife and daughter plus a few of the Spanish players’ kids, who I have to say gave the cutest Seagull chants ever! Also next to us was stand-up comedian Stephen Grant and newly promoted to Head of Sports News for Talksport, Robyn Schonhofer. If the team’s performance was anything to go by – I say viva Espana!

12 ART CABARET

Perfect 10 Art at Five, one of Brighton’s leading contemporary art galleries, turns 10 this month & hosts a special ‘Ten for 10’ event

A

rt at Five celebrates its tenth anniversary in October, and to mark the occasion the gallery is holding a unique fundraising art event called ‘Ten for 10’. Why Ten for 10? Because ten of the gallery’s favourite artists are donating original paintings to be included in a charity art raffle, with tickets costing just £10 each.

All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to Brighton based charity drop4drop, whose mission is to help communities across the globe get access to clean water. With paintings valued from £300 to £1,000, the charity raffle offers the chance to acquire a piece of artwork for a fraction of the price, whilst contributing to a really worthwhile cause. The ‘Ten for 10’ donated paintings are available to view at Art at Five, 5 Bartholomews, Brighton. Raffle tickets will be on sale from Saturday 28 September and can be bought either at the gallery or online at www.artatfive.com. The raffle will close on Monday 14 October and winners will be announced via the Art at Five website on Tuesday 22 October 2013.

THE TOWNHOUSE KEMPTOWN

came down to look and this opportunity came up at The Townhouse. I sent down my CV and luckily got the job. “The Townhouse has been around a while and has a very loyal clientele. I immediately liked the restaurant space and felt confident that with my team we could take things on to a new level. The style of the cooking we are doing is modern British with French influences. I’m slowly starting to evolve the menu, introducing new seasonal dishes all the time. We are currently introducing autumn dishes and these will eventually give way to more robust winter dishes. “I like my food to look great on the plate, the style is very important, but not at the expense of a customer feeling satisfied. The days of tiny portions are gone but we still create dishes with great attention to detail. “It’s been a gradual change but the menu is now all my own food and I’m refining what works and dropping things that don’t work. I’m here for the long term and I’m really loving it. “I like to pop up later in the evening, when the kitchen is less busy, and see how things are going. We’re already getting great feedback and have now introduced comment cards. Good feedback is always nice but it’s the things that we are not getting right for our customers that we really need to know about so that we can improve. A lot of chefs have huge egos – but you never know everything, it’s always a learning curve. “The regulars are now getting to know me and I'm really enjoying the place, it has a great atmosphere, very relaxed, and I like the live music too, it adds something extra. “Right now we are finalising the Christmas menus, there will be classics but a few other things and our new website is on its way too. It’s a very exciting time. “We’re lucky to have such great regular customers, and our loyal clients are loving the changes that we have been making. I have changed a lot in the kitchen, some new equipment and a team with me that I know and like to work with. Right now we are introducing a new lunchtime menu that will appeal to the business community, a sensible menu suited to busy people on the go. We also have our VIP room which is ideal for business meetings over a bit of delicuious food.” So will Malcolm ever go back to Canada? “You never know, I came short term and I’ve been here eight years already and I still love it. Maybe when our very young daughter is older we will go back to get her educated, but for now I’m loving being in Brighton. I’ve never liked living anywhere as much as I like being here!” The Townhouse Kemptown Restaurant & Bar, 81–82 St James’s Street, Kemp Town, Brighton, BN2 1PA 01273 693216, Open for lunch 12pm–3pm Monday to Friday, all day Sat and Sun breakfast Saturday and Sunday, and till 11pm Friday and Saturday nights. www.thetownhousekemptown.co.uk

Home on the range The Townhouse Kemptown is enjoying a new lease of life since Canadian head chef Malcolm Campbell took over the kitchens. Andrew Kay finds out more y reputation chefs can be “The style of difficult, temperamental and seemingly dangerous our cooking is characters. Given the long and modern British anti-social hours they work and the hot conditions they work in, with French it is perhaps easy to see why. But when I met Canadian chef influences” Malcolm Campbell nothing could

B

have been further from the truth. Born of Scottish émigré parents, in Toronto, Malcolm freely admits that he was a difficult teenager with little idea of what he wanted to do with his life. At the age of 17, as soon as he could legally leave home, he travelled to Vancouver, “a four and a half hour flight away”, to try to find a path. And it was in Vancouver that he found his true vocation as a chef. “I got a job within a restaurant with a French chef and trained there until I achieved a Red Seal, the local qualification for skilled trades,” says Malcolm. “After a while I decided that I needed to move to London, which really surprised my parents. “I decided to go along to The Ritz Hotel in Piccadilly and to my amazement I was given a job on the spot. I worked at The Ritz for a year and a half. It was hard work in a very exacting kitchen, 16-hour

shifts, sometimes 18, but it was great training and experience. Next I really wanted to work in a Michelin starred restaurant. I always wanted to keep learning, and I still do. “I then moved to The Bingham in Richmond where I was proud to be one of the kitchen brigade that took the hotel from one to two rosettes and then on to gaining its first Michelin star. It was there that I really learned the most from chef Shay Cooper and I spent three years there before moving on. “I moved to a small country hotel that was a bit down and out and went at it hard to get what I wanted, and in fact we got two rosettes in one year. “It was a great experience building up the reputation but I needed a change and a new challenge. My girlfriend suggested Brighton so we

and self-importance, I think. But they are a very ‘born to rule’ clique, the people who are running the country now. They’ve all got that... mafia sense of entitlement.”

I hasten to add that I’ve enjoyed your singing... but I really enjoy it when you go off on a complete tangent on The News Quiz... “Thank you. I’m sure that’s probably more important, yeah. Yeah, I tend to ramble on The News Quiz. I used to have more prepared one-liners about stuff, and then recently I can’t be bothered to do that. Because they have very good writers on the show, for Sandy, and so there’s plenty of good one-liners already. And I just try and ramble and see what happens.”

You are a thorn in their side, though... “Oh, they don’t mind. They probably enjoy it... the thing is with the left, is that we’re so weak. People don’t mind us, I think they just see us as being like amusing court jesters.”

You do good almighty rants... “Good, good. That’s good.”

HARDY BOY Darling of BBC Radio 4, unashamedly left-wing, and celebrated off-key singer, Jeremy Hardy is back on the road. Victoria Nangle talks to the comic about The News Quiz, David Cameron and podcasts How would you describe your show? “It’s a man of 52 talking at length... with an interval. “It is me we’re talking about, by the way, it’s not some cat’s miaow. All sorts of bits and bobs. Not really talking about myself all that much. Partly because I'm not very interesting and partly because it just seems a bit self-absorbed. So I talk about all sorts of stuff, from Shakespeare to hip hop, but only a few minutes on each thing, ‘cos I can’t focus very long on one thing.”

singing voice I have, but I don’t think it’s as bad as people say it is. You know, I’d quite like to sing nicely and be able to hold a tune, and be asked to stand up in pubs and sing old folk songs with my finger in my ear. But that doesn’t happen. I mean, obviously I never thought I'd make any money out of it, and the very first time I did Clue, it was in Harrogate, and it was when Willie Rushton was still alive, and he’d got me on the show. I had to do ‘Kung Fu

You say you don’t talk about yourself but your daughter seems to come up quite regularly when you’re on The News Quiz. How does she feel about that? “She likes it, she’s quite proud. She’s coming along now to recordings. There are precious few 23 year olds in our audience. But yeah, she likes to feature.”

“You know, I'd quite like to sing nicely...”

You’ve been on I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue quite some years now. A lot has been made of your singing. Did that surprise you? “Well, yeah. It’s kind of an annoyance really, because I’ve always been embarrassed by what a horrible

Fighting’ to the tune of ‘Scarborough Fair’. And the whole audience fell silent, and there was a very shocking sort of stunned pause. And then one or two people started bravely clapping, and then it spread like in a film. And then eventually the whole audience was wildly clapping. And I sat down and Willie Rushton said ‘I smell points’. And then it all just carried on. But people get annoyed when I sing properly

If you could bring back one politician from the past and install them in the current government, who would that be and why? “To install somebody in the current government, it’d have to be someone with a communicable disease. I don't think the current government can really be redeemed. I think that would be a waste of time. And anyone with any kind of decency is leaving, so... like poor little Sarah Teather. She’s bitten off more than she could chew there. But no, I think it would be a waste to put anyone of any decency into the current government.” You could put in someone like Michael Foot, to shake everybody up? “[laughs] What difference would he make? Everyone would just go ‘oh, bless’. He was a fine orator and a very good man, Michael Foot, and people respected him for that, but he wouldn’t be able to turn around... braying public schoolboys who are hell-bent on destroying the welfare state. I don’t think he’d be able to stop that. If little Sarah Teather can’t stop them from destroying the welfare state, no one can.” Maybe we should put Supernanny in there? “Yes, that would scare the living s*** out of them. But no, I think it’s just horrible. I actually find it almost too depressing to talk about, because they’re just not grounded in anything like ordinary life. They just don’t have any sort of break on their whims and fancies. They’re like a bunch of kids who’ve been given the government to play with, and they’re all really enjoying it. And that’s a horrible thing, that they really enjoy it. At least Gordon Brown, one redeeming thing about Gordon Brown, is that you could tell he absolutely hated being Prime Minister. He’d waited so long for it and when he got it he was just so disappointed. And he hated every living moment of it. Whereas Cameron, he likes to make apologies on behalf of the country ‘cos he gets to speak for the country, and it enables him to be a statesman. He absolutely loves every second of it. And that shows enormous vanity

There’s that whole objection to The News Quiz as being too leftorientated, and the BBC in general. What do you think of that? “Well, if it is it’s not going to have any impact, is it? I mean we do try and get more... different voices on the programme. I mean, I’m not really involved in that, but I do sort of say, ‘well, yeah. Let’s have people say some different things, just to make it more interesting.’ ‘Cos there’s no point if we’re all saying the same stuff, and all agreeing on everything. But it’s a question of people being actually funny. I mean, Bob Mills, who’s a Tory, is actually a good comic. So he comes on because he’s a good comic. If he wasn’t a good comic it would become pointless, because he’d never say anything funny. But, you know, The News Quiz is probably more left-wing than the public as a whole. But then, people in the arts usually tend to have middle-to-left-wing views, I think. Because right-wing people are sort of... generally fairly uncreative. They're not really interested in those things that enrich humanity, or make us special. They're interested in the bottom line, in profit. I suppose once people get to a certain level of wealth, like Tracey Emin, or The Rolling Stones, they become Tories.” Do you think you’re reaching more people these days because of the rise of podcasts? “Apparently more people listen to The News Quiz than died in both world wars...” Woah! “No, that’s made up. I think it’s about four million now, which is fairly respectable. And it’s more than a lot of TV programmes get. I mean, obviously GCHQ would be able to tell exactly who listens to The News Quiz and what they had for breakfast, but I think the way the BBC calculates these things is they interview four people and work it out on that basis. Multiply that by the number of people in the country or something.” Will there be another series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks To The Nation? “Probably, It seems to keep happening. Yeah, I keep trying to stop doing it, and keep doing more of them. But I was pleased with the last one, actually. So I probably will do another one.” Jeremy Hardy, Corn Exchange, Brighton Dome, Sunday 6 October 2013, 7.30pm, £14/5, 01273 709709, www.brightoncomedyfestival.com

TREASURE ISLAND

NEVILLE'S ISLAND Chichester Festival Theatre In The Park, 21 September 2013 ✪✪✪✪✪

F

our middle management businessmen from Salford get marooned on an island on Derwentwater during a team-building exercise. If you ignore the fact that the plot is full of holes (why on earth do they not concentrate on finding a way to signal to shore?) and suspend your belief, then you’re in for a jolly good time, because it really is very funny indeed. Much of this is down to the superb cast, John Marquez and Tim Macmillan are hilarious as the eponymous Neville and OCD crazed and delusional Angus. Adrian Edmondson does what he does best as the increasingly aggressive Gordon, but it is Rufus Hound who stole the day with the beautifully played role of Roy, damaged by bereavement and by faith. Full marks too for a superb set, with rain again, from Robert Innes Hopkins and beautiful lighting by Howard Harrison. Chichester loves to flood a stage but this time it was really worthwhile and the damp atmosphere of a truly grim Lakeland weekend is perfectly conveyed as the drizzle comes and goes but the water continues to fall from the island copse, a huddle of dripping trees. And detail is everywhere, from the Westmoreland slate boulders at the water's edge to the mad survival equipment in Angus’s rucksack, which they fail to either discover or use to any great effect. As a study of the psyche of middle management it’s not particularly sharp, but as a study of men in general, thrown into an alien world, it is hilariously insightful. Andrew Kay

A LITTLE NONSENSE

It’s rare to discover a show which succeeds in balancing genuine hilarity and powerful drama, but Juncture Theatre certainly managed it. This refreshing twohander fused elements of drama, comedy, poetry, clowning and improvisation to brilliant effect, creating a thought-provoking and thoroughly enjoyable show. Adam Blake and Harry Humberstone played off each other brilliantly, forming a dynamic and captivating double act and fully exploring the elements of light and shade within the well crafted script. A real gem of a show. Upstairs at Three And Ten, 20 September 2013 ✪✪✪✪ Adam Lindsay

THE DUCKWORTH LEWIS METHOD

Cloaked in neo-colonial garb, the gentlemen and players of Neil Hannon and Thomas Walsh’s celebration of all things crickety, The Duckworth Lewis Method, rattled through their allotted overs at a fair lick, and if the intensity fell away a little in those difficult middle overs, there was enough in the tank to get the crowd to their feet at the death. Relentlessly witty, wellinformed and knowledgeable, this is a band slick enough to improvise a cover of ‘Downtown’, then nonchalantly let it collapse. They’re really just out to have fun.

Tell us about My Valentine... “I decided to call the tour My Valentine because it’s my valentine to life. I have a passion for life and honestly feel that we should all just bloody well get out there and enjoy it. Spike Milligan once said that jokes should be available on the NHS and there’s something in that. My intention is that people will come and see the show, have a laugh, enjoy themselves and, hopefully, walk out of the theatre feeling a little bit better than when they arrived.”

London from Lancashire at the age of 18, she brought two things with her: an A-Z and Debrett’s Guide To Etiquette. In life, we all need to know how to get around and how to behave. I hope it isn’t one of those pompous books that tells you off for using the wrong spoon or anything like that. It isn’t a me-on-mysoapbox book. I’m just trying to offer a little gentle guidance.”

Where did you get this ‘passion for life’? “When I was 21, I was seriously ill. I don’t want this to sound too dramatic, but it was touch and go for a while. I’m not a religious person, but that whole experience changed everything for me. I’m determined to be cheerful... determined to seek out all the interesting stuff that the world’s got to offer.” Most people probably know you from Radio 4’s The News Quiz or TV shows like QI. How does it feel to be back on a live stage? “Performing live was where it all started for me. I can’t believe it was 32 years ago. In this age of tabloid headlines, it’s very easy to get cynical about the job I do, but there’s a wonderful simplicity to being on stage. If the audience is enjoying what you’re doing, they will laugh. If they’re not, they’ll tell you to push off.” You’ve also got a new book out at the moment, Peas & Queues: The Minefield Of Modern Manners. Do manners matter in 2013? “They matter more than ever. You’ve only got to look at the recent rows over Twitter to see what happens when there are no set rules about how we behave. It’s a bit like the Wild West of manners out there. When my partner, Debbie, came to

TOTALLY COMPREHENSIVE!

Do you find writing easy? “I don’t always like the process of writing, but I like seeing the end result. My father was a journalist, so he was always writing and, rather bizarrely, he compared the process to eating fish. He said: ‘First you must land the fish. Then, you fillet out the rubbish and enjoy the tasty bits’. There’s a section of the show where I talk about why I write and encourage the audience to write... we’ve all got a story to tell. No matter how many Kindles there are out there, people will always love books. Books can change lives. If George Bush had just read one book about Afghanistan, the world might be a different place. Actually, the world might be a different place if George Bush had just read one book.” You’ve also written plays, you’re Chancellor of the University of Portsmouth, you’ll be appearing in the Christmas edition of Call The Midwife... how do you choose the projects you get involved in? “It’s either got to be something that makes me happy, like playing a grumpy polio nurse in the wonderful Call The Midwife, or something I care about, like education. My generation has done a huge disservice to the current generation by forcing them to pay for their education. I feel a lot of rage about that and I guess that I’m trying to give something back. I help out with staff training days at the university and, last July, I personally graduated and shook the hands of about 4,500 students.”

We can’t let you go without mentioning The News Quiz... “Did you know it’s now a worldwide phenomenon? I’ve actually been invited to perform in New Zealand and Australia next year, partly because of the success of The News Quiz down there. I like to think people enjoy the show – and I’m told it’s Radio 4’s most popular panel show of all time – because it’s not nasty, vile or personal. Yes, we make jokes, but it’s a very inclusive show. In that sense, I suppose it’s a bit like My Valentine. Every night of the tour, there’s me and a couple of thousand mates having a bit of a laugh with each other. We get the audience on their feet, we have a history quiz... there’s even a Q&A session.” What’s the best question you’ve been asked on stage? “Some of the questions are hilarious. A woman in Bradford wanted to know my bra size! I couldn’t actually remember, so she had to come up and have a look.” How would you like this tour to be remembered? “People came, they laughed, they went home again smiling. That’ll do for me.” Sandi Toksvig, My Valentine, Tuesday 8 October, The Hawth, Crawley Box office 01293 553636 www.tickets.hawth.co.uk

COMEDY: BRIGHTON COMEDY FESTIVAL The cream of comedy comes to Brighton. So we asked some of them what they liked best about our city rapturous reception. I was even signed to a Brighton based label [Janomi Records] for a couple of years. Basically, my memories of Brighton are overwhelmingly good, hence the love being forever reciprocal.” Doc Brown: Of Mic And Men, Corn Exchange, Brighton Dome, Saturday 12 October, 10pm, £14

David Baddiel “I like Brighton because: it’s got a pavilion, but not a cricket one (don’t like cricket); if you add Rock to it you get one of my favourite novels and indeed films; it has a comedy festival; it has a pier, one of the best and most eccentric of inventions, a thing that could only have been born in the surreal world that is the English seaside; and it has three synagogues, but is also, according to some poll or the other, one of the least religious places in the UK (as an atheist Jew this makes me think I should live there).” David Baddiel: Fame – Not The Musical, Corn Exchange, Brighton Dome, Thursday 10 October, 9.30pm, £17.50 Doc Brown “A decade ago when I was a wannabe rapper pushing my wares onto unsuspecting members of the public, there was only one place that proved consistently receptive. Perhaps it was the fresh sea air, the tolerance of alternative lifestyles or the vociferous support for free and independent enterprise, but Brighton always seemed to love me. From a little corner dive called the Pressure Point, to the Concorde, I always seemed to be guaranteed a

Lucy Porter I have a love/hate relationship with Brighton. I love it, because it’s where my earliest seaside memories come from. At the first hint of sun we’d bomb down from Croydon and spend the day eating fish and chips and going on the rides at the end of the pier. I hate it because over the years, loads of my mates have decided to move to Brighton when they have kids. Just as salmon in Alaska swim upstream to spawn, everyone I know seems to migrate down the M23. I’ll soon be left flapping around and gasping for

breath all alone in London.” Lucy Porter: Northern Soul, Studio, Brighton Dome, Saturday 19 October, 7.45pm, £12.10 Steve Hughes (one of The Lumberjacks) “I always had one reason for liking Brighton: in the 10 years I and many other comics spent on the comedy circuit, whenever we would play in Brighton at Komedia we would stay at an old boarding house run by Bill and Agnes. They only ever had comedians or musicians staying there as they liked the company of interesting, eccentric people who liked a drink or several, and we would spend many a drunken night talking and laughing away into the wee hours that it made the long train ride down from Manchester all the more worth it. They weren't young either but they were old school and put many a lightweight to shame when it came to a night on the sauce and other assorted nibbles so to speak. They have moved away now and I haven’t

seen them for many years but they were intelligent, hard partying evolved eccentric souls whose company will always give me fond memories of Brighton.” Stewart Francis, Craig Campbell and Glenn Wool are The Lumberjacks, Corn Exchange, Brighton Dome, Saturday 12 October, 7.30pm, £16 Brighton Comedy Festival, 01273 709709, www.brightoncomedyfestival.com

MUSIC: ANDY FAIRWEATHER LOW Jeff Hemmings catches up with the legendary musician

T

here is a good chance you won’t have heard of Andy Fairweather Low, or know much about him. The older folk among you might know him better: not only did he score major hits with his band Amen Corner (‘Bend Me, Shape Me’, ‘(If Paradise Is) Half As Nice’), but also as a solo artist in the ‘70s (‘Wide Eyed And Legless’). Many a teenage girl had a poster of him adorning their walls back in the day... Fairweather Low perhaps knew his limitations as a pop star early enough to set out on the road of being a session musician from the late ’70s; not any ordinary session player mind, but one who has played, recorded and toured with the likes of Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Van Morrison, The Who and Roger Waters among others. A fine singer as well as guitarist, you will have heard him on countless recordings. Finally, after 26 years in the shadows, he made his own record, ‘Sweet Soulful Music’, released in 2006. “I was making a living, playing with Roger Waters for 24 years [as well as Clapton et al]. I had no inclination [to make a record]; I was happy playing, being paid very well, sleeping and eating very well. And then I got the bug, I wanted to play, and write songs again. “My job was not to deviate from that path: I would play the opening riff of ‘Layla’ or whatever, and then Eric would do the solo; I would play the opening of ‘Tears In Heaven’ and then Eric would sing. With Roger Waters I would play bass a lot of the time, while he strummed the acoustic, and when he played bass I would play the guitar. I hate the word utility, but it kinda sums it up – I was a utility player.” ‘Sweet Soulful Music’ was made with his newly formed band The Low Riders, who currently feature Paul Beavis and Dave Bronze and Nick Pentelow. Bronze co-produced the new Low Riders album, Zone-O-Tone, an excellent album that captures the current zeitgeist for all things ‘authentic’. Welsh born and raised, Fairweather Low has lived in Wales all but a few years of his life. “I came to London with Amen Corner in ’66, and between ’71 and ’72 I came back and have lived here ever since. They built the motorway and the InterCity 125 and with the internet it’s all a lot easier. When I was working for other people, the phone either rang or it didn’t; it didn't matter where you were.” As for recent projects. he reels them off: “I’m in another band with The Gaddabouts, with Steve Gadd and Edie Brickell. We've just recorded out third album. I also did three weeks with Eric, played Glastonbury with Bill Wyman, Chris Barber’s 60th anniversary concert, and I've just done 16/18 tracks with Tom Jones... I’m busy and loving it, absolutely loving it!” Komedia, Wednesday 2 October, 7.30pm, £24.75

WHAT’S ON CLUBS

L7 Bmusic I used to write letters I used to sign my name / I used to sleep at night / Before the flashing lights settled deep in my brain

O

nce upon a time, there was a magical place called MTV where all the music videos would play and be merry. Indeed, those days are long gone, but the internet isn’t such a bad replacement, eh? These days, some of the most enjoyable music videos are interactive — the ones that take you on a delightful ride through a personalised audio-visual experience. Arcade Fire’s new video, ‘Reflektor’, has arrived, and it’s a doozy; much more of an interactive experience than a music video. Visitors to JustAReflektor.com can both get a glimpse at the band’s new material and, using a mouse, mobile phone, or tablet, can manipulate the effects used the video. The clip was directed by longtime Arcade Fire collaborator Vincent Morisset, and was filmed in Jacmel, Haiti. According to the site containing the video, the clip tells the story of “a young woman who travels between her world and our own”, and by using a mouse to manipulate the images, that individual viewers thereby become “reflektors”. Then there’s the group’s previous ‘The Wilderness Downtown’ located at TheWildernessDowntown.com which is a must see interactive video for the Arcade Fire track ‘We Used To Wait’ off their album The Suburbs. It offers a video with the weird rush of conflicted nostalgia that most of us feel when we look up our childhood homes on Google Street View. “Video” is probably actually the wrong term here. Arcade Fire teamed up with Chris Milk to create a personalised experience that opens up tons of windows on your desktop and uses your own address to create a rush of images that'll be unique to whoever ends up watching. The video is an amazing exploration of new media techniques and HTML5 programming. A work of art that will be of interest not only to Arcade Fire fans, but to anyone interested in the wide range of possibilities available with new HTML and CSS standards. Music moves from its origins of soundscapes into audio-visual landscapes to be interacted with. You can interact with us at www.facebook.com/BmusicTV

TOTALLY COMPREHENSIVE!

nlike many young Brightonians, I’ve been lucky enough to live in the same house with the same people for a good number of years, unbeset by the woes of regular house moves. It is not without its troubles though. Creative types are thrift store magpies, building nests of threadbare instruments and sparky equipment that hope to somehow defy the laws of chemistry and become useful again. A trumpet with a turquoise tint, piano wires turned woody brown, crackling speakers fuzz out a tune on plastic keys until the melody is broken by another short circuit. There are working instruments, but they’re all part of an ongoing tessellation game between guitar cases and broken mixing desks that someone was meant to fix. Then there’s the cat. And no one cleans the sink. A chain supermarket down the road is the nearest to sell alcohol, the only controlled substance scientifically proven to stimulate creativity (blood alcohol level of 0.07, look it up), so we’ve come to know the staff who are in it for the long haul on a small talk, first name, “you alright mate?” “yeah, alright mate” basis. Stumbling towards the point in all this, it turns out one smiley and loquacious chap spotted “my ugly mug” on these here pages and is a writer and poet who is sending his first book to American publishers and won a recent Brighton poetry prize. Although somewhat trite, the conclusion I’m blindly scrabbling at is that our city is awash with those who want more and do more than just get by. An apocalyptic plague of ladettes and stag nights may swarm the streets on weekends but day to day, door to door, everyone is making their mark on the world in a way that we, as a community, should endeavour to discover, support, and appraise. Let's remember that next time we’re buying a bottle of wine or walking down a terraced street of anonymous houses. Ahem, music. The melancholy post-punk of oxymoronic Soft Arrows and Sigur Ros-on-steroids Nordic Giants both release records this week. Get on that. Then Son Belly, Kraken Mare and Nature Channel play the Green Door Store on Wednesday before a bumper session of new-wave Brighton bands play the same venue all day Sunday. Get on that too. Now, here’s to you Bradford Middleton. You would probably have said all this better than me.

STARS With Val Aviv

★ARIES {Mar 21–Apr 20}

Where one or two major relationships are concerned, you get the chance to tighten the sails of your love boat. The new Moon promises a fresh start to readdress the balance in a joint union. Love has a transformative effect.

★TAURUS {Apr 21–May 21}

You may need an adjustment phase to take a slightly more leisurely approach to your working routine. The new Moon insists that habits are given the once over for the purpose of inner harmony, balance and health. Love beckons.

★GEMINI {May 22–June 21}

You can really embrace the whole of humanity in moments of inspired visions but gaining a day to day perspective on your own mundane existence may prove a little more challenging. Not everything is about reaching a goal.

★CANCER {June 22–July 22}

If a love interest from a dark period in your history raises its head, it may be worth noting that a lot has changed in the interim. The success comes not from what presents itself, but how you choose to deal with it.

★LEO {July 23–Aug 22}

Don’t get hoodwinked by flattery, the stroking of egos is a very easy way for someone to get what they want. It’s fine to give into the desires of others, so long as it’s because you want to. Charm is a double-edged sword used for both good and evil.

★VIRGO {Aug 23–Sep 22}

You may be drawn into the secret mystery, as life unveils little when what you’d really like is for it to reveal all. Your imagination could be drawing all kinds of conclusions now, but the truth of the matter is so hard to see.

★LIBRA {Sep 23–Oct 22}

The new Moon in your sign is your yearly chance to shed some skin and regenerate, revealing a newer, brighter and fresher you. Say goodbye to the pains of yesterday as the future appears suddenly changed. Finances are looking up this week.

★SCORPIO {Oct 23–Nov 21}

Everyone’s looking for you to take the lead. You’ve got some wise ideas which are worth sharing. Hard wired communicator Mercury is in your sign and mentally you can articulate with greater speed and accuracy, it’s a transitory phase so put it to good use and get interactive.

★SAGITTARIUS {Nov 22–Dec 20}

Your current state of being resembles an extraterrestrial in the room, you may have to accept a lack of understanding from your peers. Being ahead of your time isn’t an easy burden, but humanity is relying on you to push your creative boundaries to the limit.

★CAPRICORN {Dec 21–Jan 19}

Leaving your comfort zone behind is another way to experience your inner resilience, adaptability and strength. You can surprise yourself! The new Moon sets you apart from others as you are given a platform with which to shine upon.

★AQUARIUS {Jan 20–Feb 19}

Are you really going to waste time on the romantic chase, when everyone knows Aquarian success lies in the silent confidence of aloof indifference? Of course, that’s why partners are so hell bent on raising the dramatic bar, in a plea that you might actually notice them. As usual, play it cool!

★PISCES {Feb 20–Mar 20}

You’ve just got to get more adventurous is the simple message that should be screaming at you. You want to feel alive and the only way to do that is to grab the real world by the horns and ride! Think of what you’ve got to give and aim to deliver. Stamp in the face of adversity!

tuesday 1 The Wrong Mans BBC2, 9pm Nick Moran had such a promising start as the lead in Guy Ritchie’s Lock Stock... but since then he’s turned up as Adam Ant in an independent short, a goon in Harry Potter and various other roles in the sidelines of film trivia. Now he’s back in centre stage with a sitcom and in strife – his missus has been kidnapped!

CSI: NY Channel Five, 9pm A veritable US crime feast to delve into tonight, kicking off with this new episode from the final series of New York’s finest fingerprint collectors. A masked figure is found dead at the bottom of a notorious skyscraper – quite how a building acquires notoriety remains to be seen – and the team set to reveal all.

Bad Education BBC3, 10pm You know when the headmaster has a good idea that simply throws someone else’s plans right out? That. Mr Fraser organises a guest speaker for Drugs Awareness Day. Meanwhile Stephen’s parents want him to leave Abbey Grove. Can Alfie persuade them to let him stay? Or will they just say no?
