& These questions SUCK! Who’s most likely to end up on Skid Row? All of us. It would be a step up! Are you still the Youth Gone Wild? Dave ‘The Snake’ Sabo In mind and spirit but (Guitar) definitely not body! What’s the best thing about touring? Playing the show. Nothing comes close to that time on stage. And the worst? Ingesting the flatulence of 9 other guys in a tour bus on a nightly basis for 6 weeks. Who’s Joe and is he as Ugly as your name says? He’s a punk. Yes.

What do you want to be when you grow up? An OctoMom.

Do you still hate everything about me? No, not everything.

What’s your favourite song to play live? Kings of Demolition/Monkey Business/Quicksand Jesus.

What’s the best thing about touring? The actual time on stage.

Klaus Eichstadt (Guitar)

And the worst? Hangin’ with a bunch of dudes all the time. What do you want to be when you grow up? Responsible What’s your favourite song to play live? “Milkman’s Son”: It’s really easy. Who has the biggest feet in the band? Me What’s the weirdest thing that’s happened on tour? Playing in front of the biggest crowd ever in the history of the band, at the Polish Woodstock, almost 20 years after our last hit record. Awesome, but Kinda weird? Who has the worst tour bus habit? We are all pretty well trained at this point. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve been asked in an interview? “What’s the weirdest thing you’ve been asked in an interview?” If you were a crisp (chips) flavour, what flavour would you be? Piss and Vinegar Who would win in a fight, Skid Row or Ugly Kid Joe? Skid Row. Why should we come see you on the UK tour? Because you have nothing better to do!

Who has the biggest feet in the band? No one. We’ve all just recently had our feet amputated as a band bonding experience! What’s the weirdest thing that’s happened on tour? We all had our feet amputated. Who has the worst tour bus habit? Me. I have this habit of breathing every few seconds and, apparently, its quite annoying to everyone. They’ve been very adamant about me giving it up for 25 years now. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve been asked in an interview? ”Who has the biggest feet in the band?”-see above If you were a crisp (chips) flavour, what flavour would you be? Vodka. Who would win in a fight, Skid Row or Ugly Kid Joe? Please specify what type of fight as we are all specialists in different areas of fight. Street fight? Knife fight? Sword fight? Rob Halford’s Fight? Why should we come see you on the UK tour? This will be my last tour. After this I am pursuing my life-long passion: Professional Backyard Wrestling!!

festival round up

The Music team took up the challenge to attend as many festivals as possible this summer! Here are our Festival Round Up reviews! Well it may be a mission to get to and from and it may have rained on us quite a bit but this year’s Bestival certainly cemented Rob & Josie Da Bank’s annual fiesta into our festival calendar. The Isle of Wight based festival reached its 10 year anniversary this year and celebrated with a huge nautical themed party. Potential Bestival-goers take note: Bestivalians take their fancy dress seriously and the Saturday was awash with sea-creatures, mermen, lighthouses, Titanic characters, castaways, fish finger sandwiches and even Ursula the Sea Witch! Very much feeling like Glastonbury’s little brother, Bestival encompasses all that is right with the UK’s festival scene – an eclectic line up; the opportunity to party non-stop or tuck yourself into a secret spot for a workshop or acoustic jam and most importantly an over-arching sense of FUN. The artistic touches make the experience more enchanting and the sense of adventure as you discover a cinema in the trees or a bloomin’ great ship round the corner ensures there’s never a dull moment. We will certainly be setting sail on the good ship Bestival again next year! ZAN LAWTHER I have been meaning to visit Camp Bestival for years, I was only able to make it down for one day but, armed with my trusty 5 year old side-kick, we headed to Lulworth Castle to see just how much we could cram into 8 hours. The answer was, quite a lot indeed. Although we caught a bit of Dan Le Sac vs Scroobious Pip, Labrinth and DJ Fresh the music seemed somehow secondary to the multitude of hands on activities and places to explore, had we arrived sooner we could have signed up for one of a number of workshops run by performers and learned how to dance, juggle or even make instruments out of vegetables. This festival is most definitely aimed squarely at families with children, indeed I would have felt most uncomfortable engaging in the level of er, refreshment that I normally attain at a festival but since I had my son with me this was not a problem. A very happy day was had watching the motorbikes roar round the wall of death and enjoying an indeterminate and wallet destroying number of rides on the helter skelter. Just as it looked like the nipper had finally run out of steam we’re treated to an finalé featuring a light show and projections right onto the castle itself with a cracking good firework display to finish. I can’t wait to go for the whole weekend next year. I’ll leave it to my son to sum up in one word... ‘AWESOME!’ KAI HARRIS

DEVON MUSIC | OCTOBER 2013

Boardmasters’ setting on a cliff top overlooking the sea in Newquay already sets it apart from your average festival. Attracting bands such as Ben Howard, Everything Everything, Basement Jaxx and Grandmaster Flash this year pushed it up into the big leagues and even better - the weather held out too! Although the main stage does tend to struggle with sound the big tops create a great vibe and when you add in the surfing and BMX competitions you’re not short of things to be entertained by. Until 1am that is, when the festival shuts down, lights out. A night bus ferries late night party goers into town but it’s a bit of a crush and we’re left wanting a little more fun before bedtime. They’re on the right track though and Boardmasters continues to grow every year - we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in 2014! JAMES WILLARD

FESTIVAL ROUND UP


FEATURE

Southampton’s Seán McGowan made his début at Glastonbury Festival in June on not one but five different stages at the Somerset bash. Starting with a packed crowd at celebrity hangout, The Rabbit Hole, and finishing with a guest slot on the Leftfield stage singing ‘Rock the Casbah’ with Billy Bragg, Kate Nash and Sam Duckworth, Seán certainly left an impression that should see him cement a place as a regular fixture at Pilton. The Rolling Stones also made their début and, although the likeliness of them returning is pretty unlikely, Mick Jagger and co put in a performance that will go down in legend. Glastonbury is a festival that truly caters for everybody; we met a lady called Jean, in her 80’s, selling merch for Strummerville, who had been coming since day one and she said she had no intention of stopping any time soon. We asked Jean what her favourite part was. “It’s simple”, she said, “it’s the people what make Glastonbury such a special place. There’s somebody from every walk of life here, and they’re all so friendly. I’m already looking forward to next year”. JODIE COPELAND

Saturday 14th September marked another successful year for Butserfest, East Hampshire District Council’s all ages, ‘drugs free’ music event. A collection of some of the UK’s best up and coming rock, pop and alternative rock bands wowed the 1400 attendees. Add in some free activities, including a giant inflatable lazer quest, band signings and exclusive intimate backstage acoustic sets throughout the day, along with 10 hours of extensive live streaming provided and produced by Southampton Solent University, and it’s safe to say that Butserfest is a unique festival experience for all ages and music tastes.

MARIANNE HARRIS

Leopallooza is one of those festivals you wish you’d discovered years ago. Upon first arrival it looks like dozens of clone festivals but scratch beneath the surface and it soon becomes very evident that this is a grass roots, independent event born and nurtured from a passion for music. Hand painted signs, permanent wooden stages and tree house type sound booths, and sofas littered around an entire vip campus that make you feel a bit like you’re on Scout camp. And a great line up that supports up and coming artists to boot. Definitely one to be looking up for 2014. MARIANNE HARRIS NASS is a weekend mash up of action sports, live music and dubstep arenas. It’s the UK’s only professional action sport and music festival, and from years of previous attendance, a darn good weekend. This year the live music was dumbed down a little, understandable as it’s the late night DJ sets that are the popular music element here traditionally, but watching great bands like Kids in Glass Houses and Katy B play to an almost threadbare audience is not only a little disheartening but does beggar the question of ‘why bother?’ Great festival that possibly needs to reassess the music element for 2014. MARIANNE HARRIS

FESTIVAL ROUND UP


FEATURE

Over the last weekend in August, around 3,000 fans of experimental music gathered on a small farm just outside Bristol for the inaugural Arc Tan Gent festival.

With more than 80 acts playing on four stages over the Friday and Saturday, plus a single stage for early birds on the Thursday, there was plenty on offer for those who like their music a little left-field. The alternating stage times gave revellers the opportunity to watch as many bands as possible, and people literally running between stages was a common occurrence. The fans were well rewarded for their efforts. A fan-voted set from rising instrumentalists Maybeshewill and alt-metal legends earthtone9 playing the majority of the seminal album that gave its name to the festival were among the more exclusive treats on offer. My other highlights from the eclectic bill included the squalling hardcore and boundless energy of Baby Godzilla, a majestic and beautiful audio-visual extravaganza from post-rock duo Nordic Giants, expansive post-metal from Bossk, Three Trapped Tiger’s glitch, angular electro-rock and an exuberant set from And So I Watch You From Afar. The organisers of Arc Tan Gent spotted a gap in the festival market and filled it with aplomb. It was a well-run, friendly, uncorporate weekend for open-minded fans of unconventional music. I can only hope it becomes a fixture in the festival calendar for years to come. SI CLARK

Encompassing all the craziest bits of Glastonbury yet keeping the capacity to a modest 30,000; BoomTown is nestled in the rolling countryside just outside Winchester. It’s certainly not one for the fainthearted – if you want to party, non-stop, for four days straight then THIS IS THE FESTIVAL FOR YOU. If you want your senses battered from all directions by weird, wonderful, at times beautiful and at other times brilliantly terrifying sights and sounds then go, pull on your fanciful costume, douse yourself in glitter and set yourself free amongst the madness. The sheer amount of effort from all involved is what comes together to make BoomTown the full on sensory explosion it is. There’s a theme for everyone as the entire siteis a tangling maze of districts such as ChinaTown, Barrioloco and Mayfair. During the day BoomTown is full of chilled out vibes and relaxed grooves but it’s at night that the party really kicks into high gear. The explosion (and yes, we literally mean EXPLOSION) of Arcadia allows you to party till the small hours to the hard trance and huge beats blasting out of Arcadia, under the watchful eyes of an enormous fire breathing mechanical spider. No, really, that happened! ZAN LAWTHER Beautiful Days does exactly what it says on the tin. I frequent around 5 or 6 festivals every Summer & BD would be my favourite even if I didn’t care for any acts on the lineup! The combination of the atmosphere, lovely location, friendliness & of course the brilliant ale & food options really do it for me. From an artist’s perspective, I’ve always been treated superbly & professionally too. Created by The Levellers (splendid gentlemen) for all the right reasons, easily the most fun you can have in a field! I’d go even if I wasn’t playing & that’s a rarity for me these days!

Codex originally formed in 2009 as a four piece and released our debut EP ‘The Infinite Growth Paradigm Vs Finite Resources’ via Bored Stiff Records in 2010. In 2011 we had our song ‘Baptised’ released on the game Rockband 3 and completed our lineup with Elliott & Frank (Cambion) along with sharing the stage with international Metal acts such as Vader & Krisiun. We are currently working on our new release featuring new singer Ray Arrell. Your headlining the Second Stage at the Halloween Zombie Ball are you doing anything special for this? We are indeed, but we can’t say too much now, its a surprise. But we do have a whole bunch of new songs, which may well be unleashed for the Zombie Hordes...I think the worlds first Zombie Circle pit is in order! What’s the best thing about touring? Touring’s a blast! We have had some great experiences touring in Codex, for me its getting to play in a new city/town each night to new people and hanging out with other bands along with ever present randomness that never fails to happen. Do you travel in a van? Does it have a name? The Thunder Horse! If you could have written any song, what would it be? Machine Head - Davidian. Its just pure class! Or anything by Pantera, RIP Dimebag. If you became the biggest band in the world, who would you get to support you? Iron Madien! Or Dethklok, actually Dethklok! Besides the Zombie Ball what can we expect from your live show? Pure 100% heavy metal! Full power, balls to the wall metal!
