Interview The news that Brody Dalle was working on new music caused a flurry of excitement last year and even more so when she revealed she was planning to release her first solo album in 2014.

Did you ever consider a different career path? This is the only job I’ve ever had and I love it.

The former Distillers and Spinnerette front woman has had a long, wild career in music – being signed at just 15 years old and spending her 20s touring the world – but has reaching her mid 30’s, being married to Queens Of The Stone Age singer Josh Homme and motherhood calmed the punk icon? Chic caught up with Brody Dalle when she stopped off in Sheffield for her first ever gig at The Leadmill…

You wrote all of the songs on the album and most of the instruments we hear are played by you – Is there anything you don’t do? I should probably play piano – the possibilities are endless. This could be my next challenge. I learnt guitar age 12 though and I’ve always played instruments and had fun with them. My husband is a sick bass player too – not many people know that about him. When I first met him I was green with envy. I picked up the bass because of him. I thought I’ve got to be able to do that.

Welcome to Sheffield. How’s the tour going? Are you missing home? So far so good. I love the UK. The weather is great – I like the rain. I live in LA now and I’m so sick of sunny days. I’m really excited to be in Sheffield for the first time. Tell us about your new album, Diploid Love? I write about what’s going on in the moment. Diploid Love is a deeply personal album to me. It’s about living life and creating it. It explores ideas of the modern age, triumphing against the odds and even spirituality. It took me a couple of years to write and record the album. I didn’t want to rush it. What’s your favourite track on the album?

For sure. This is the longest I’ve been away from home, I’m one week in to a three week UK tour. I speak to my kids two or three times a day over Facetime and I’ve wrote them postcards too. It’s nice to be able to read a book, magazine or watch a show though without being climbed all over or hit on the head with a pillow. What’s next for you? I’m back in LA for a while but I’ll return to the UK later this summer as I’m playing the Leeds/Reading Festival. That will be rad. Words: Jessica Fogarty

Parties for Prostitutes. It’s a fun song. Was going solo always something you planned to do? It’s never something I planned but now I love being a solo artiste. I used to be jealous of the likes of PJ Harvey. She’s on it. I wanted that freedom. It’s like the first time you learn to drive and you get the independence of your own car. You can travel across the country and do whatever you want to. Do you miss the company of a band? I’m a live performer so I have a band with me on tour. I’m only on my own when I’m in the studio. The independence is what I love – if I want to play the drums, I play the drums.

REVIEWS

E of E British boys, playing music and attracting female attention. Just another young band jumping on the One Direction bandwagon, right? Wrong. E of E are something new.

And it is his powerful vocals that provide the drive in the band’s tracks. “I’m falling for you, darling,” he sings, in a voice so hopelessly romantic he could have leant it from Jared Leto.

The band from the Black Country, consisting of Tom Harris, Dan Bremner, Luke Bradley and Nicky Waters, are currently supporting super-group McBusted on their UK tour, playing to over 380,000 fans over 32 dates.

The band’s influences range from Maroon 5 to Guns n Roses, but there’s a distinct sound of Lawson (Lust even borrows the “she knows” hook from Juliet) and You Me At Six in their music.

Despite their good-looks and boyish charm, the fourpiece are not a conventional ‘boyband’ – they write their own songs, play their own instruments, and have a recognised frontman in 17 year old Tom.

E of E’s music is loud and bouncy, filled with soaring guitar solos and stadium-ready choruses. Fans of McBusted are in for a treat. E of E support McBusted at Sheffield Motorpoint Arena on May 19. Words: Reece Darwent

Serocee GQ MC

Boxfresh presents:

The night began with Jus Now and Serocee getting the crowd ready for the nights events. With pulsing music, strobes and some of the best drinks offers you could find on a Friday night, the night was an epic collaboration of all the things you’d need for the weekend.

Toddla T What do you get when you cross Boxfresh, the original bastion of British streetwear, the infamous Tuesday Club with Sheffield’s finest DJ Toddla T, all supported by some of the UK’s hottest DJ’s? An unforgettable night of jungle, electronica, drum ‘n’ bass and house and one of the best music events to hit Sheffield so far in 2014. Boxfresh is 25 this year, and as part of the brand’s immense 25th birthday celebrations, Boxfresh presented Toddla T x The Tuesday Club: It’s a Sheffield Thing at Sheffield University Union on the 28th March. It brought together an all-star party line-up, with Toddla T, Andy H, Shy FX and MC GQ, Melé feat. Slick Don, Jus Now with Serocee, Flako, Bok Bok and MC DRS. Spread across two rooms, Toddla T, The Tuesday Club and the supporting DJ’s managed a jam packed night of some incredible sounds to keep the party going until 4am.

Having Toddla T back in his home town, the Steel City, was not to be missed. The Radio One DJ smashed his set with sounds old and new, including his newest release, Acid. The crowd went wild as the Sheffield lad returned to the stage, welcoming him home in true Sheffield style. One by one the DJ’s took to the stage, all with their own style and performance. The highlight of the night for me was Londoner, Shy FX, with his drum and bass set. His mix of old school and d’n’b kept the crowd dancing and the atmosphere electric. It’s fair to say that Boxfresh, The Tuesday Club and Toddla T created an unforgettable night. With just the right mix of people, DJ’s, drinks and venue, it’ll take a lot to beat the night on the rest of their birthday tour. Words: Millie Hamnett

THUMPERS Having just toured the US, London based Thumpers are set to have a big summer ahead of them. We caught up with one half of the pair, Marcus Pepperell, to talk about the forthcoming album…

Words: Molly Murray How are you, what’re you doing with your day?

used to drive around together. Our experiences of Blur and Rage Against The Machine were in the car, it can be a powerful way of experiencing music. You can control your musical environment and there’s a real atmosphere of freedom when you first start driving, so I’d like the album to be listened to in the car. Hopefully it’s a good driving record.

Hmm, pretty good. Working on new songs for us and remixes for other people. It’s sort of a day off, but it’s always the most creative, mixing work and a day off. It needs your whole engagement, but you can’t really complain, making music on your day off isn’t bad. I read that you first became friends in year seven – what effects does such a long friendship have on the music making process and vice versa? Yeah, well we met when we were 11 and started our first band together at 15. It has a huge effect really, I couldn’t really imagine it otherwise. Especially when we were sort of allocating our instruments. John was lucky, he was sort of given the drums, but we instruct and help each other with instruments. It’s difficult to imagine our friendship without music.

You seem to have a predominantly DIY approach to everything which is great; what are your thoughts on DIY in music today and has your signing to SubPop in the US hindered your ability to keep it up? No, SubPop pride themselves on giving freedom, it’s part of their ethics, we love them for that. They just want bands they sign to release albums straight away with few barriers, which is the ideal creatively rather than a band sitting on an album for ages.

It definitely intensifies the friendship for better or worse really, we’ve gotten into a rhythm and it’s important to know when the other has had enough.

In a way it’s easier for bands today to do things for themselves, you can record yourself without a studio easier now. Although touring and releasing is harder on your own.

You’re releasing your new album, Galore, in the UK next month. What can people expect and how do you ideally envisage people listening to it?

You’re heading off on tour in May, are you excited/apprehensive about people’s response to the album so soon after the release?

John and I were just talking about this, actually. The album’s about ‘firsts’ as you grow up; we grew up together and when we were old enough we

Well it’s already been released in the US and we’ve just toured there, it was the first time the crowd knew the music before the show and knew the

page #12


lyrics – there are a lot of lyrics. It’s natural to be a bit apprehensive but we’re excited for the crowd to be more involved. Our ethos is really about an inclusive, communal feeling. I always get a summer feeling listening to you, what are your plans for summer? Any bands you’re hoping to catch? Well we’ve got the album release in May, then touring and then festivals. I can’t say much about festivals yet, but we’ll be playing one like every weekend. We’re playing Secret Garden Party. There are loads of bands I’m hoping to see; Wild Beasts, Findlay, there are loads! The best thing about being in a band is you get to see the best bands around. You’ve got previous band experience (the pair were previously in Pull Tiger Tail), but do you feel back at stage one of being a new band with Thumpers? Yes. It’s totally distinct. There was a long time between the two, about 18 months to two years. We needed to decompress, find a genuine place musically to express, rejuvenate.

What advice would you give to new or even not yet formed bands? Definitely record as much as possible before getting involved with the music industry world. Find your aesthetics and goals, the more unified you feel and the more confident in your identity, the better. How’s London treating you? A lot of bands make it big locally before making the big move. What provoked your decision to head to the capital? We’ve spoken about Warwickshire being our hometown a bit so I think people associate us with it, but we’ve been in London for about ten years, since we came down to Goldsmiths. We’re very much a London band, but Warwickshire was a phase for recording. We’re excited to have you in Sheffield for your Leadmill show, May 24. Have you had much experience with Sheffield thus far? We’ve played there loads, I love Sheffield! We played with Blessa there before, they’re a great band. Screaming Maldini are really good too. We’ve played Tramlines and Beacons before as well. Yeah, I really like Sheffield.

Drenge Following their hugely successful debut album last summer, we caught up with Eoin Loveless, one half of Drenge, mid-tour to chat about their success thus far and what’s next.

page #16

Words: Molly Murray


Hi Eoin! How are you? I hear you’ve got the day off. I’m currently watching our merch guy making a wrestling character on the PS3 that looks like someone off of a Louis Theroux documentary we watched the other day.

switching off really, our minds are on it all the time with constant ideas. But it’s useful to be able to discuss it straight away rather than holding onto creative ideas to bring up with a bunch of other stuff at a band practice or something. What are Drenge’s summer plans?

I first heard about you through word of mouth, then all of a sudden you were front page of the Guardian and supporting The Rolling Stones – such a massive response must’ve been pretty overwhelming. A little under a year on, how are you finding the on-going buzz around you?

Lots of festivals, every weekend, with not much to do on weekdays. Draw visual stuff for the next album too I guess.

The best thing is not to pay any attention. I tend to just ignore it and get on with the job at hand of touring and making music.

No idea. We played Plug recently and to our surprise sold out the big room. I want to play Leadmill, and the small places we used to play. Hopefully before the end of the year.

I hear you’ve been recording between shows – can you tell us anything about the new material? Any wild, unexpected turns in direction… One of the weird things is when people come up to you after shows and tell you what they do whilst listening to your music. These two guys once told me that listening to the album was like their sexy time out whilst they were getting off with their girls. The vibe for the next album is one to cry with their girls to. It’s definitely our take care album. You’ve been touring non-stop since the album release – is it still fun? Do you feel the live show has developed since releasing the album? It’s still fun because we switch around countries. In the UK the crowd tends to be more into it, and we’re playing bigger venues. In the US we’re playing bigger cities, like Portland, where it’s half empty and other than two mega-fans who’ve been waiting to see us since the release, nobody really knows us or just can’t be arsed to get involved. The variety keeps it fun and keeps it varied between easy, big, small, difficult, but also stressful. Do you think being brothers makes it harder to disengage or break from band life? Yeah. We’re quite quick to suddenly talk about band stuff at the table. There’s no way of

Any idea when Sheffield will next have a chance to catch you?

I’m always enthralled by your lyrics, can you shed any light on the writing process? I don’t want to crush any element of mystery… My advice would be not to take it too seriously or at face value, which I know some people do. It’s meant to be tongue and cheek whilst also being aggressive and violent. I want to know about ‘I Don’t Want To Make Love To You’. I think it’s brilliant, where did the idea to do it come from? Well a while before we started Drenge, I heard The Dead Weather’s cover of ‘I Just Want To Make Love To You’; it led into one of their own tracks. It was really trudgy and dark. I tried it out but I just couldn’t sing those lyrics, it was too cheesy, so I decided to change it around. There are tons of great bands happening in Sheffield at the moment, any favourites? Yeah there are loads. Best Friends, Blessa, Avida Dollars, Seize The Chair. All my mate’s bands basically. Finally, I think we should finish with something positive. Any words of wisdom or inspiration? Just keep going.

Ones to Watch:

S

Sheffield’s biggest inner-city music festival is set to return for its sixth year, with a mouthwatering line-up set to grace the city’s music venues and performance spaces, fronted by pop superstar Katy B.

More than 60 acts will play across three days, including The Cribs, Deap Valley and Ms. Dynamite, as well as a late-night DJ set from Radio 1’s Annie Mac. Tramlines attracted over 95,000 music-lovers last year, and has prepared fifteen sites for 2014, including Devonshire Green’s Main Stage, Folk Forest and the Tramlines-exclusive Busker’s Bus. On top of that, the festival will host a larger-thanlife dance/electronica takeover of the University of Sheffield venues, featuring DJs from around the world.

In a world of Ed Sheerans and Ben Howards, 21 year old acoustic guitar troubadour Lewis Watson faces stiff competition for success. But his music has attracted acclaim from Radio 1, and he is set to light up this year’s festival with his folky-pop repertoire. After a three year hiatus, The Rifles returned with their latest offering None the Wiser at the beginning of 2014. The Chingford rockers incorporate soft harmonies with rhythmic guitars, making for a sound not too dissimilar to The Courteeners or The Enemy. Sheffield native Toddla T presents his project, the Toddla T Sound, at Tramlines Festival for the third year in a row. The BBC Radio 1 DJ has toured his show at festivals worldwide last summer, and the added live vocals of Shola Ama create a truly memorable piece of art.

Annie Mac

25/26/27 JULY 201 4

Tickets are priced at £28 (plus booking fee) for the three-day weekend, and are available now from Gigantic. Those in and around the city can also purchase their tickets, booking fee-free from The Harley or The Leadmill.

North London alt-rock four-piece Shy Nature include Tramlines as part of their summer festivals list, and are certainly not to be missed. With exuberant melodies and deep, twentysomething romance-ridden lyrics, fans of Vampire Weekend or The Maccabees should be sure to check them out.

lobal superstars Arctic Monkeys are set to join Blink 182, Paramore and Queens of the Stone Age in headlining this year’s Reading and Leeds Festival in August. The Sheffield rockers, whose latest offering AM was voted Album of the Year by NME magazine, return to the festival for the fourth time. Drummer Matt Helders said: “We’ve got a lot of history with the festival. It’s the first festival I ever went to – we all went together as kids. We were 15 or 16 and it was a big deal going to a festival like that on your own”. They join a line-up that already includes Manchester indie four-piece The Courteeners, who make their third appearance at the festival, and danceduo Disclosure. Last year’s breakout act, The 1975, will also make their second appearance at the festival, having seen their debut album reach Number One, as well as selling out a string of UK shows.

Arctic Monkeys

The band said: “We grew up going to Reading & Leeds Festival. It’s so humbling knowing we are going to play such a prestigious slot there this year. We cannot wait.” Jake Bugg, Metronomy, You Me At Six and Warpaint, as well as Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac, are also confirmed to play the three day festival across the Bank Holiday weekend.

e all love to hear emerging artists and discover fresh talent. But sometimes there’s even more of a thrill in hearing an established performer, with a great track record, do something really unexpected and create a new career landmark.

Can you introduce your new (splendid) album ‘Holy Ghost’? Why that title? Well, thank you. I love this record and in the process of waiting to make it, I’ve spent a lot of time getting to know Holy Ghost. And I think it sounds better than Holy Spirit.

That’s where Marc Ford comes in. The fabled former lead guitarist with the Black Crowes, who has been the leader of his own bands, a session player of choice with Gov’t Mule, Ben Harper and many others, and producer of acclaimed acts from Ryan Bingham to Phantom Limb, has switched gears to deliver what will undoubtedly stand as one of the finest Americana albums of 2014.

How would you describe a typical recording day at Rockfield in Wales and the Shed in Bath, with your fellow Limb members? It all went so fast and easy. At Rockfield we spent three days tracking. We all set up, got our sounds and knocked ‘em out. I would sing the song for them and then when everyone was getting their parts together we would hit record and have it, usually in the first or second take. These guys are such great players. I mean, they can all play circles around me. They’re genius is in what they didn’t play. They all serve the song.

Ahead of his gig in Sheffield this May, we caught up with Marc Ford to find out more about the Holy Ghost…

Your wife Kirsten is on vocals, and your son Elijah, on guitars...Have you ever thought, “This is what life was made for”? It most definitely is amazing having family involved. You know, it was credited a little wrong regarding Elijah’s role. He sang on every track. We tracked the record sitting face to face with acoustic guitars.

Words: Jessica Fogarty

page #22


He has a huge presence on the record. We recorded Kirsten’s vocals later on sending files back and forth. I will say this, when family sings together, it is so easy. Everything just seems to blend naturally. It is what life was made for. Who and what has helped you the most get to where you are today? Family and friends and Holy Ghost What are your biggest career regrets and your most awesome memories? Getting to play with long time heroes like Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Page and Plant, Booker T. I learned so much from just being near these people. The relationships that were made and most of all the music was always so much fun. If I have any regrets, they would be about me and my inability to handle situations, which I took personally, and then made bad decisions. And then, it all got me here didn’t it? What do you miss most about of your glorious days with The Black Crowes? Again, the music was always the main thing. The adventure, realizing the boyhood dream of “making it”. It was all very exciting for a while. What kind of music do you listen to these days? I usually stay to the things that have always inspired me. As for new records, I love Richard Thompson’s ‘Electric’ and Dr. John’s ‘Locked Down’ I heard some of Beck’s new record today and it’s beautiful. Are you looking forward to touring, to support the release of ‘Holy Ghost,’? Yes, we’re starting the tour in Camden at Jazz Cafe and after we run through Europe we’ll finish with a week or so in the UK. You can get the dates on my website marcfordmusic.com. Marc Ford will be performing at Corporation, Sheffield on May 27. Holy Ghost is out now – available on Amazon and iTunes.

After the End by Amy Plum Release 6th May 2014

Very Wicked Things by Isla Madden-Mills Released May 2014

Sins and Secrets by Jessica Sorenson Released 2014

World War III has happened and left the world suffering with nuclear radiation. A lucky few have survived the past 30 years after escaping to the Alaskan Wilderness, hiding from who or what might be out there.

Cuba Hudson is a great football player, filthy rich and lives a life of never wearing his heart on his sleeve. But then she showed up. Ballerina Dovey Beckham was born on the poor side of town, determined to do whatever it takes to succeed, even if that means surrendering her body.

Two years ago Lola ran away from the dangerous life she’d been in since she was born in order to stay alive. She was forced into changing her name and reinventing herself, playing a secretary by day and an escort by night, living a double life to survive. Things seems to be going okay until a ghost from the past shows up.

Juneau returns from a hunting trip to find everyone else in her clan has disappeared. For the first time she leaves the boundaries of her land to find them, uncovering something horrifying: World War III never was. The World is intact. Everything has been a lie. Juneau is now lost in a modern-day world, searching for her friends and family, while someone searches for her. Someone who knows the truth about her past.

One day, she meets him and her tears apart all of her plans, becoming the girl who starts to shatter. Cuba Hudson then meets her and she offers something he’s never experiences…love. They both face the sting of betrayal and face sacrifices, should they love or let go?

The sexy Layton Everett comes back into Lola’s life without any warning. He knows who Lola really is but even worse, he used to work for her family’s sworn enemy. Lola has worries he’s back to finish what started two years ago, trying to stay away from him. But, this proves hard when she becomes attracted to him more than she wants to admit.


FILM RELEASES

22 Jump Street Released Friday 6 June Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum team up once more in the sequel to their 2012 comedy box office smash, 21 Jump Street. After making their way through high school, the federal pair are tasked with going undercover again, but this time at a local college. Featuring Dave Franco and Ice Cube, expect to laugh-out-loud as the hapless cops attempt to repair their strained relationship in order to crack the case.

PULP Released Saturday 7 June Florian Habicht‘s film unveils the deep affection that Sheffield have for Brit-Pop icons Pulp, and the effect the Steel City had on their music, and frontman Jarvis Cocker’s lyrics in particular. Described as “funny, moving and occasionally bewildering,” Pulp features a career-best live performance from the band exclusive to the film. The opening night at Sheffield City Hall is set to be attended by the director and Pulp band members, and will be live satellite broadcasted to cinemas nationwide.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 Released Friday 4 July The first of two How To Train Your Dragon sequels (with HTTYD3 set for release in 2016) and based on the book by Cressida Cowell. The film tells the story of Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel), a young Viking who doesn’t fit with his family’s tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Written, directed and produced by Dean DeBlois, who co-directed the hugely-successful first film.

Grace of Monaco Released Friday 6 June Nicole Kidman plays Grace Kelly in this French-American biography, detailing the trials and tribulations of the former Hollywood superstar’s marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco (Tim Roth). Directed by French-born Oliver Dahan, the film opened the prestigious Cannes Film Festival in May. Expect glamorous costumes, gorgeous locations and an inspired portrayal of the Prince from Roth.

Jersey Boys Released Friday 20 June Clint Eastwood-directed, Jersey Boys, tells the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey, who came together to form the iconic 1960’s rock group, The Four Seasons. Starring Christopher Walken and John Lloyd Young, and featuring tracks from the band’s popular songbook, the film focusses on frontman Frankie Valli and his rise to fame. With the majority of the cast taken directly from the Broadway production, this is certainly one for purists. Transformers: Age of Extinction Released Friday 27 June The fourth film in the Transformers series, Age of Extinction focusses on a cash-strapped, patriotic mechanic (Mark Wahlberg), who discovers a dormant Optimus Prime. Featuring explosions, muscles and seminaked women, Michael Bay sticks to his tried-and-tested formula for a Transformers film. Words: Reece Darwent

REVIEWS La Vaca

Words: Sam Whitaker

rare and deliciously juicy. The spicy garlic and chilli potatoes were great with the hot sauce that had sat tantalising on the table since our arrival but it was the creamed spinach that really brought the whole meal up a notch. It’s not often that green veg comes out fighting but that spinach really surprised me. Originally ordered as the token green to stave off feeling too guilty about the rest of our indulgence, creamed spinach (Espinacas en crema if you’re feeling fluent) is a must.

Found unassumingly on Glossop Road in the very heart of Broomhill, La Vaca is a family run restaurant that brings South American steaks to Sheffield with style. Proudly boasting locally sourced beef from Yorkshire, La Vaca really knows its way around steaks. With a menu that goes above and beyond, La Vaca gives you the choice of cuts: Rump, Ribeye, Sirloin, T-bone and Pan Handle. Beyond that weights range from 8oz to a colossal 30oz. If that wasn’t enough, the owners of La Vaca even know their cows, or at least enough to know the breeds from Chile and Argentina are Hereford and Angus, the same as our local cows, really making South Yorkshire a perfect little South American counterpart. Beef isn’t the only offering though, with Costillas de cerdo, spicy pork ribs, which we shared to start. Grilled rather than slow cooked they were completely removed from the BBQ sauce drenched ribs that have become the common staple these days and they really benefitted from it. The pure flavours of the pork were prominent, slightly seasoned and perfectly grilled. I’ve been threatening to visit La Vaca for months after hearing mention of it and I now wish I hadn’t left it so long. For main I opted for the Ribeye and the guys on the charcoal grill can only be described as masters of their craft. It was a perfect medium

A couple of glasses of the house red washed the whole evening down nicely and La Vaca is now the place I’ll recommend at any excuse.

Hong Kong Wok Located, perfectly, in the oriental cuisine centre of Sheffield, London Road, Hong Kong Wok’s unassuming exterior doesn’t scream for your attention, but like most good things; it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The restaurant has only been open four years and this is instantly recognisable with the modern, clean cut décor, spacious white and red with glossy black tables. The staff are welcoming and make sure you’re seated with enough space. However, through the evening, as more customers come in, it becomes apparent the restaurant has a kind of seating plan with international customers at one side of the restaurant and locals at the other. Nevertheless, this didn’t distract from the friendly atmosphere. But I think that could be my one and only negative comment about Hong Kong Wok. The food was not far from perfect. There were four of us eating and we decided to make a pick ‘n’ mix banquet of our own. To start, we ordered salt and chilli chicken, shredded duck and aubergine and green pepper tempura. The

page #28


chicken was battered golden and crisp, not too heavy, and the mix of salt and chilli was perfect, the heat didn’t over-power but was still present to give it the kick you wanted. The quarter duck was succulent and finely shredded and although the pancakes were a little too moist, it didn’t ruin the juicy duck. Unlike the chicken, the tempura was battered a little heavier than what I expected but the vegetables maintained their moisture and were a refreshing accompaniment. For our mains, a standard chicken in curry sauce, crispy shredded beef with chilli and the famous three roasties were ordered. We’d all heard from friends about the three roasties from Hong Kong Wok and had to try it for ourselves. A dish of two types of roast pork and roast duck, they were all tender and soft with a crispy, roasted coat. Again the beef with chilli, like the salt and chilli chicken, was seasoned to perfection and wasn’t too hot and overpowering. The chicken curry, although a standard dish, you could not fault, the curry sauce had the ideal consistency and the chicken was delicious. Between the four of us, we also got a dish of fried rice and a dish of plain noodles, which

were the ideal choices for side plates. Even though we had less than one main each, there was still more than enough to go round and we even had to leave some, something I hate doing. Desserts and tea were free too, but we were all too full to accept. As for value for money? For the generous portions of food, four bottles of oriental beer and one bottle of wine, the bill totalled £84. Between four people, I’d say that it’s excellent value for money. We paid £90 and left the change for tip, although the waitress didn’t actually return our change after paying – a little bit cheeky, but brushed aside after the wonderful evening we’d had at Hong Kong Wok.

Powered alcohol set for US release The American government have recently approved the production and sale of Palcohol, a powdered liquor available in six alcoholic flavours, including rum and vodka.

If made available in the UK, it is believed that Palcohol could become popular with students, as it could be discreetly taken to places where alcohol is either unavailable, or overpriced.

The powder is available in small sachets, and can be transformed into an alcoholic drink by simply adding water.

The company have already stressed the importance of using the product responsibly, and even increased the volume of the powder to discourage the snorting of it.

Former chemical engineering student, Mark Phillips, came up with the idea while at University, and originally intended it to be a cheaper and more practical way to transport alcohol. Palcohol packages weigh about an ounce, and are currently available in six different varieties: rum, vodka, cosmopolitan, mojito, margarita and lemon drop.

It is not yet known when, or if, Palcohol will be made available in the UK, but health organisations here are already considering the implications. Words: Jessica Fogarty

Words Are Weapons

M

any of you will know Manchester rapper Chronikill as a hip hop artist, rap battler and former top dog at Don’t Flop and BLAM!. Having branched out to host grime clash events across the UK over the past two years, Chron is now bringing Words Are Weapons to Sheffield for the third time. Originating in Manchester, Words Are Weapons draws MCs from the North, South, East and West head to head, spitting bars over heavy grime and DNB beats. Words Are Weapons has previously featured the likes of Dialect, Marvin, Zen and Inc but also provides a platform to showcase new talent at each event.

Grime vs a cappella ...It’s the defining divide between your usual rap battle event and Words Are Weapons. If you want less arty-farty poetry and more fast paced punchlines, grime clashes are the one. There’s something about a live DJ that brings the event together in a very different way to the other (now overly middle-class) leagues. Chronikill is bringing Words Are Weapons to Bar 27 (near London Road) at the end of this month, co-hosted by Psychosis Holochaust. The event will feature eight clashes between MCs hailing from Sheffield, Manchester, Bradford,

rom dishing out demos on the streets of Sheffield to becoming the proud owners of five number one selling albums, Arctic Monkeys have come a long way, and so has their music.

psychedelic difficult third album, ‘Humbug’, was unleashed, sorting the men from the boys, and marking their maturity from adolescence. ‘Suck It and See’, the band’s forth album, is a casual punch to the throat, relaxed yet rough, ready to serenade you, only to show you the back of it’s hand three minutes later, weirdly leaving you pining for more.

Starting out as thrashing motor-mouthed youths, the Arctic Monkeys didn’t just explode out of the gate, they demolished them all together. Ladling up critical acclaim like a big-boned bloke at an all you can eat buffet ‘Whatever People Say I Am That’s What I’m Not’ went on to become the fastest selling debut album in UK music history! Their next outing, ‘Favourite Worst Nightmare’, was another belter following on from Alex Turner’s observational wise cracks, the album (this time including stories of mind-invading, dressing room infiltrators with a dodgy fashion sense) seemed to lull fans into a false sense of security before their

What is your music background?

Juno Download Dubstep and Grime Chart, have been highlights for me.

I have both of my parents to thank for my taste in music. They always had music on around me from a young age - from reggae to UK garage (UKG) and neo soul. This had a big influence on me. I always knew I had an interest in music but I never knew how I wanted to express it. It was in my teens that I decided I wanted to produce. Who are your influences? I found a lot of influence from old school hip hop and how they sampled tracks to recreate new ideas. But being fortunate enough have a well rounded taste in music I found influences from many other genres too, like UKG and bassline which I spent the early stages of my productions making. What have been the highlights of your career? Up to now it would be hard [to say] as I feel I’ve achieved a lot in a small space of time through producing and DJing. But having my own radio shows pushing the up-north grime and UK G sound, as well as seeing my last release in the

Have you worked with any big industry names? Being mainly an underground artiste I don’t really rub shoulders with many industry names; but I supported Bluey Robinson and Misha B, which coming from my background was crazy. I always stay true to grime, bass and UKG and play it everywhere I play though. I’ve also been supported by DJ EZ and Toddla T. What are you working on at the moment? I’m working on lots of new material to put together for a possible release this year, and I have just become a weekly resident on Nasty FM (www. nasty.fm) every Tuesday 4pm-6pm playing music from myself and the best across grime, UKG and bass. What are your plans and dreams for the future? My goal this year is to have a successful EP release and continue to be one of the few niche outlets specific to grime in Sheffield, via radio every week, sets, and bookings.

Foods to Promote Hair Growth

How to make Raspberry Lemonade

- By Alice Johnston on Trusper Blueberries: Like little pockets of Vitamin C, these increase collagen which surrounds the hair follicles, making them strong.

- By Ashley Boyer on Trusper Blend 1 oz package frozen red raspberries, 10 cups of sparkling water, chilled 1 oz can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed Ice cubes, fresh lemon slices and/or fresh red raspberries.

Fish: Three per cent of your hair is made up of Omega Acids, which your body cannot produce. Find them in salmon, sardines and trout. Walnuts: Not only high in Omega Acids, but also Vitamin E, which protects the hair from DNA damage.

Serve in glasses over ice. Garnish with lemon slices and/or fresh raspberries.

Oysters: Lack of zinc can lead to hair loss – eating oysters can prevent this.

Student Money Saving Tips - By Michelle Jean on Trusper -

1. Leave your cards at home: After a few drinks, it’s inevitable we are going to get out our cards and spend, spend, spend! Leave your card at home, just make sure you take out enough cash to last you the night.

2. Make a packed lunch: Don’t splash the cash on expensive sandwiches and overpriced drinks and chocolate – bring your lunch to Uni with you.

page #48

3. Have a shopping list: Knowing what you are going to buy stops you from buying everything in sight. It’s easy to grab everything that looks appealing, but ultimately you don’t need.


Peanut butter fans pen a pop-tastic tribute “I’ve worked in the food industry for over a decade, with some brilliant brands, but this is the first time a community has ever created a song in honour of the product. I think it’s brilliant and Chris and Django are both very talented.”

Two peanut butter fans have shown that they are simply nuts for the world’s first peanut butter flavoured hot drink by penning a musical tribute to the product. Chris Mohan (21) and Django Holder (18) of Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts decided to create a spoof in honour of Peanut Hottie after trying it for the first time. Written by the dynamic duo to the tune of the Franz Ferdinand classic ‘Take Me Out’, the song features lyrics such as “so if you’re thirsty, there’s something new here waiting for you…” and is named in honour of the drink’s tagline ‘Take me home’. Since its launch in October 2013 Peanut Hottie has been revolutionising the British brew and has created a legion of devoted fans. Although not the first tribute to the product, it is the first song to be written about it with fans previously using it in recipes and writing letters of thanks. Lisa Gawthorne co-creator of Peanut Hottie commented, “Since our launch in October we’ve developed a real fan following amongst customers with people regularly tweeting about enjoying the product or engaging with us on Facebook.

Chris added, “I’d heard about the product online and really wanted to try it, so I went in search. As soon I had my first cup I was addicted, the sweet taste is brilliant and it makes a great alternative to your bog standard brew. Then I saw the tagline on the jar which read ‘Take Me Home’ and thought I could have a bit of fun with it. “I enlisted my bandmate Django and in the space of an afternoon we had written the lyrics. Our next step was to enlist the help of some friends to create a music video we could send in. Neither Django or I expected anyone from Peanut Hottie to respond to our email, but they did to say they liked the song. It’s now become a sort of unofficial anthem for all Peanut Hottie lovers, which is brilliant!” Find out more at: Facebook.com/peanuthottie and watch the video at: Youtube.com/ watch?v=hPBaGUrXqLs We want to hear musical tributes from you Sheffield students too!

Get Walking Week runs from May 3-10 – a festival designed to help the nation discover the wonder of walking. Only a third of us are active enough but it doesn’t have to be this way – walking is an easy and fun way to improve health and wellbeing and it’s free too, all you need is a good pair of shoes to get going. To help us all get more active, the national festival is encouraging everyone to get outside and get walking this month, whether it’s making short journeys on foot instead of in the car, making time for an after work stroll or planning a weekend walk with friends and family. Get Walking Week is supporting Britain on Foot, a call to encourage more people in Britain to get active in the great outdoors. Find out more at www.ramblers.org.uk/gowalking/get-walking-week.

Run, walk or dance your way through the course and help us say “cancer we’re coming to get you.” The 5k Sheffield Race for Life takes place on Sunday, June 8 from 9.30am.  Adult entry is £14.99, but it is of course all for a good cause – Cancer Research UK. The course starts outside the Oasis at Meadowhall and heads out onto the surrounding roads. It follows the outskirts of the shopping centre and then heads down to run along the picturesque riverside before heading back. Sign up at: www.raceforlife.cancerresearchuk.org.

Race ready Sheffield fitness expert, Radek Kalas, is advising those who are taking part

in Race for Life this year to be well prepared and not to take the distances they’ll cover lightly. Each year Race for Life organizes 5K and 10K runs nationwide to help raise funds for Cancer Research - Racers are encouraged to walk the distances if they aren’t capable of running but Radek feels that some people may take the distances for granted. He says: “5K can be a challenging distance if you are not prepared, although this isn’t a competitive race and you can walk the distance, people will want to finish the race and do the best they can. “I encourage anyone taking part to prepare by starting their training around now so they have plenty time to build up their distance gradually. “I would suggest training around three times a week starting off with a mix of jogging and walking. “Another thing they need to remember is to drink plenty of fluids while training, especially as the weather warms

up over the summer.” Radek also suggests doing body weight exercise as well to build up your general fitness levels and core strength.  “A good strong core can really help with your running,” adds Radek.

All you have to do is bring your printed receipt down to them and they will get you registered.

PERSONALS // The Sober Date Drinks on a first date are always that little bit precarious. You don’t want to be THAT girl. That end-of-the-night make-up. That unsexy slurring of the words. More Lindsanity on a bender than classy catch who can handle her night cap. But sans alcohol? Forget it. What if there are awkward silences, I think in horror? Or small talk about the weather to fill up the gaps? And there won’t be that hazy drunken glow, I note disappointingly. That post-drink first kiss. That electric brush of the knee. Sobriety certainly isn’t seductive, I think as I inwardly shudder. But stone cold sober was exactly how I found myself a fortnight later on a late afternoon coffee invite from Mr. R., a late night dalliance in the vomit-stained floors of my local and a flirty Facebook exchange the day. It can’t be any worse than my last alcohol-fuelled dates, I reassure myself in the days leading up to the date. I think

back to that dreaded first date where I’d blanked out, finding myself still in my dress and heels the night before, drenched in sweat, only for the drunken confessions I’d made hours earlier jolting me out of my hazy drunken confusion. That date where he helped my staggering self to a taxi a few hours in, promising to call, never to hear back from him again. That disastrous three or four pre-drinks before late afternoon cocktails… But navigating dating without a drop of the devil’s juice in sight certainly isn’t any simpler, I note on date night. The free flowing conversation facilitated by alcohol was noticeably absent, for one. Those dreaded awkward silences and forced laughs at his not-so-funny tales. I wasn’t entirely surprised when he sporadically texted me the days after until they eventually petered out. Perhaps I was a little hasty in assuming that I could meet Mr. Right sans a tipple-or-two. There’s nothing more seductive than giving him the eye on the dance floor and emboldened by alcohol, finally making that move. See you on the dancefloor… Words: Salma Haidrani

Mrs X I slipped into my tight fitting black dress that hugs me in all the right places, I flicked my bouncy, just blow-dried blonde hair down my back and slicked on some red Chanel lipstick. I glanced at my watch, as the hand hit 12 I heard a knock at my door.

Michael helped me out of the car and accompanied me to the lift. “Thank you Michael, I can take it from here,” I said, leaving him at the doors of the lift. I looked in the mirror behind the lift doors and took a deep breath, I can do this, I told myself. I haven’t seen him for four months, four long months. He broke my heart without a second thought and left me to pick myself up without so much as an ‘Are you ok?’

“Hello Gisele,” the driver of a black Bentley continental purred. He’s dressed in a three piece suit and a top hat. Who am I? My name is not Gisele, and no, I am not a high class escort. I am an ordinary girl with some more than ordinary tales of men. All you need to know about me is that I am going to be honest, brutally honest, in every one of the stories I will divulge with you. I will start at the end, as it seems a common place these days, then I will go back to the beginning. So, where was I? Ah yes, the driver. “Thank you Michael. I’ll be out in a moment,” I waved and disappeared back inside my house. I spritzed some Chanel No.5 onto my wrists and shook my glossy mane as I sprayed some more. No outfit would be complete without a pair of black Loboutins, so I painfully slipped my feet into my favourite ones and left the house. The journey to the restaurant was filled with small talk between Michael and me. “How have you been Gisele? It’s been a while,” Michael asked me, glancing briefly in his rear view mirror.

And now, out of the blue, he wants to see me again. This, from the man who never made any effort to see me or show me how much he cared for me. So what does he do? He has his driver pick me up and drive me to my favourite restaurant to meet him. I pinch my cheeks to give them some colour, and smooth the creases in my dress down. So why am I here, you may be thinking? Surely, if a man breaks your heart and doesn’t bother to contact you for four months you would immediately walk away right? Of course, you would be right. But I have loved this man like I have never loved before. It was an all consuming, passionate, intense, joyful, painful, enveloping love. The only way he was able to make me feel so depressed was to make me feel so alive in the first place. I didn’t hesitate in saying yes when he asked. After what felt like an eternity the lift reached the 34th floor and the doors opened. Before I had a chance to compose myself, I saw him, leaning against a wall, looking devastatingly handsome in a crisp white shirt and black suit, his brown hair slicked back, his eyes fixed on me.

“I’ve been fine Michael, absolutely fine.” It was true. I have never enjoyed life more since having my heart broken by Drake. It took me being away from him to realise just how bad he was for me, and how much happier I could be on my own.

He smiled at me and started walking towards me, “Hello Gisele,” he murmured in my ear as he held me tightly. “I’ve missed you.” Every hair on my entire body stood to attention, his touch electric. I had missed it.

“That’s very good to hear,” he smiled.

I knew then, that this night would change everything.

I nod. “Thank you.” We pull up outside my favourite restaurant. A skyscraper with the restaurant located on the 34th floor of a new, modern building.

PERSONALS page #55


Remember the Date Struggling to find work after university? Fancy becoming your own boss? Take a leaf out of Sheffield economics graduate Lauren Nicholson’s book. She’s moved away from a career in investment banking to launch her own business – Remember the Date – a quirky card company designed to rival industry giants Moonpig and Funky Pigeon.

Where did the business idea come from?

Where are you based?

I have a forgetful friend who never remembers to post a card on time. I loved the concepts of Moonpig and Funky Pigeon but I wanted to take it one step further so customers can pre-order all of their cards for the year ahead.

I’ve been given free office space for this year in the University’s Enterprise Building, but I still have an in-house studio too. Since its launch in April, what has the response been so far?

Tell us about your quirky designs? I’ve been overwhelmed by the response. There were 35-40 sign-ups in the first two weeks and orders have been coming in faster than predicted. It’s also surreal to be doing interviews with radio and magazines. It’s great that so many people see potential in Remember the Date.

The designs took inspiration from the Innocent Smoothie drinks. They are funny and different. There’s no sentimental verses either. They’re simple, cheese-free messages. How have you funded the business?

With four in ten graduates struggling to find work after university, what advice would you give to those considering becoming selfsufficient?

I’ve had some funding from the University Enterprise and The Prince’s Trust but I’ve also had to beg, borrow and steal. Well, I’ve not stolen yet. How long does the card creating process take? It’s a two minute process to create a card. Customers can log in through Facebook too. You can pay for all of your cards in one go, or we have a reminder service so you know when you have a celebration approaching then you just pay for each individual occasion as and when. It sounds a lot of fun, but it must be hard work too?

Work hard to stand out from the crowd. I did a lot of research before I decided to do this and I know that Remember the Date is truly unique, not only because of our carbon neutral printing status but we also promise free delivery anywhere in mainland UK. I believe that if you have the drive and ambition to do something, you’ll find a way to do it. www.rememberthedate.co.uk Facebook: Remember the Date Twitter: @rememberthedate

I never stop working. The hardest thing for me was giving up clothes shopping. I need to invest all of my time and money to the project to make it a success so I haven’t treated myself in over a year. Words: Jessica Fogarty

Meet the team...

Jack Bee

Gary the elephant

Bryan the bird

Clive the goldfish

The over-worked packing operator — he loves perfection so refuses to hire anyone else.

As a rather savvy elephant, Gary knew he couldn’t do it all on his lonesome. His enormous capacity for remembering dates was simply not enough to build a business model around.

Planner, artist, one of those general goody-goody types.

Forgetful and dozy, he may be, but he also has bags of potential (plus Gary owes him a favour).

生活小竅門 生活里需要各種各樣的小竅門,下面是本月最受 歡迎的一些

如何調製覆盆子檸檬水 作者:Ashley Boyer 將1盎司的冷凍覆盆子和10杯蘇打水、一盎司的 檸檬濃縮液,冰塊、鮮檸檬片和/或者新鮮的紅色 覆盆子均勻攪拌。加冰即可飲用。可以用檸檬片 和鮮覆盆子裝飾。

學生省錢指南 作者:Michelle Jean 1.別帶卡出門:喝上幾口后,很容易忍不住刷 卡,刷卡刷卡!把卡留在家裡,保證帶足一晚上 要用的現金就行了。 2.自帶午餐:別把錢浪費在昂貴的三明治和飲料 上 – 自己準備好中午那餐。 3.寫一份購物清單:計劃好要買的東西可以防止 你看見什麽買什麽。琳琅滿目的超市很容易讓人 買一些不需要的東西。

有助於增發的食物 作者:Alice Johnston 藍莓:就像一包包的維他命C,其飽含的膠原蛋 白會包裹發囊,令髮絲堅韌。 魚:頭髮百分之三的營養來自歐米茄-3脂肪酸, 這種物質不能從人體得到。可以通過三文魚、沙 丁魚和鱒魚身上獲取。 核桃:不僅飽含歐米茄脂肪酸,更含有大量可以 防護髮質免受DNA損害的維他命E。 牡蠣(生蠔):身體缺乏鋅元素會導致落髮 – 吃 生蠔可以補充鋅元素。

美食专栏 香港茶餐厅 位于Sheffield中餐林立的伦敦路,香港茶餐厅 (Hong Kong Wok)腼腆的门面并不大吸引顾客 的注意。不过老话说得好:酒香不怕巷子深。

美食專欄 La Vaca 位於Glossop Road上Broomhill中心位置的一家不 起眼的小店,La Vaca是一間家庭經營式餐館, 主營美式牛排。所有原材料牛肉都來自約克郡本 地,La Vaca對牛排的文化可謂深諳其中。絕對 是“高大上”的菜單,包括各種部位的牛肉任君選 擇:牛後腿排、牛肋眼、西冷排、T-骨牛排和其 他。從8盎司一直到30盎司的分量選擇如果依然 無法滿足你,店主對牛的瞭解將會給你帶來驚 喜,至少他知道產自智利和阿根廷的牛種與我們 到當地的牛種一樣都是赫里福德牛和安格斯牛, 令南約克郡聽起來儼然南美的縮影。 當然牛排不是唯一的選擇,我們點了經典菜 Costillas de cerdo(辣排骨)作為前菜。慢火碳 烤而不是傳統煮熟,令經過燒烤醬醃漬的排骨肉 輕鬆完整地從骨頭上脫落,成為餐桌上的主食。 肉質的鮮嫩以及醃料的配合恰到好處。 自從第一次聽說La Vaca以來我一直揚言要來光 顧,如今的感覺是相見恨晚。主菜我點了牛肋 眼,那些在碳烤爐旁邊工作的人簡直是這門手藝 的藝術家。我的牛排正是我想要的3分熟,汁多 肉美。配菜里的大蒜和辣味土豆非常吸引人, 但是把整到菜提到最高水平的是奶油菠菜。奶油 綠色蔬菜的做法不常見但是令我印象深刻,爲了 降低我們一大堆肉食動物的罪惡感,奶油菠菜 (Espinacas en crema,如果你會讀的話)必須 一試。 幾杯紅酒下肚,完美的結束了整晚的盛宴。La Vaca自此成為我的力薦牛排店。 Sam Whitaker

尽管只有4年的经营历史,香港茶餐厅开张不久就 获得了一致好评。现代化的内部装潢、红白交接 的喜庆色彩和亮锃锃的黑色餐桌,简单大方。服 务人员很周到,会确保你坐得舒适。然而到了晚 饭时间,越来越多的顾客光临,很明显服务人员 有意将外国友人安排在一边而中国人在另一边。 虽然这种安排并不影响友好的氛围,而我也只能 就这一点对其吹毛求疵了,因为对食物实在无从 挑剔。 我们一行四人,决定试试pick ‘n’ mix混合自助 餐。前菜点了椒盐鸡、香酥鸭和灯笼椒天妇罗。 椒盐鸡外层呈恰到好处的黄金色,外脆内酥,椒 盐的味道点到即止,辣味不过火却又刚好过足 瘾。香酥鸭多汁味美,被小心翼翼地撕成细条 状,尽管卷鸭的薄饼有点黏糊,并不影响鸭的肉 质。相对于椒盐鸡,天妇罗的外层面皮有点厚 重,不过灯笼椒的质感没有被破坏,依然鲜嫩。 主菜我们点了咖喱鸡,干炒牛肉丝和闻名的三烧 拼。朋友们告诉我们必须试一试这里的三烧拼, 这是一道包括两种烤法的猪肉和烤鸭的传统粤 菜,烧肉和烤鸭外焦里嫩,叉烧软嫩多汁。干炒 牛肉丝于椒盐鸡有异曲同工之妙,味道恰到好 处。咖喱鸡虽说是老生常谈的一道菜,永远不会 出错,但是咖喱汁的浓度和肉质的嫩爽还是值得 一提。另外我们还点了一盘蛋炒饭和清炒面--完 美的配菜。 尽管每个人都没有吃足一道完整的主菜,我们都 饭足酒饱,甚至不得不剩下一点。饭后甜品和茶 点都是免费的,但是我们实在吃不下了。 實惠方面?如此慷慨的分量外加一瓶紅酒和每人 一隻青島,總共下來£84。四個人平攤下來非常 划算。我們付了£90打算剩下的找零做小費 – 儘 管服務員有點厚臉皮地沒有找零,不過在香港茶 餐廳度過了這樣一個美好的夜晚,還計較什麽 呢? 香港茶餐廳 地址:200-204 London Road, Sheffield, S2 4LW 電話:0114 2588694 页#23

音樂節

亮點介紹 北倫敦另類搖滾四人樂團Shy Nature 今年夏天將光臨tramline音樂節,絕 對不容錯過。生氣勃勃的旋律,20幾 歲年輕人愛情故事的歌詞,喜歡Vampire Weekend 或者 The Maccabees 的朋友必須一聽為快。

Sheffield一年一度的盛大音樂節即將迎來它的第 六個年頭,一行令人期待的音樂人已經摩拳擦 掌,流行音樂巨星Katy B領銜表演。

Ed Sheerans和Ben Howards正紅得 發紫的如今,21歲的民謠歌手Lewis Watson想要成功需要經過激烈的競 爭。然而他的音樂已經成功吸引了 bbc一號電臺,并應邀成為今年音樂 節的表演嘉賓。

為期三天的音樂節有超過60場演出,包括樂隊 The Cribs, Deap Valley 和 Ms. Dynamite,當然 還有來自Radio 1電臺的深夜D-J表演。 去年音樂節吸引了9萬五千多音樂愛好者參加, 而今年準備了15個表演場所。包括位於Devonshire Green的主場,Folk Forest以及tramline獨 家贊助的藝人巴士。

經過3年的沉寂,The Rifles帶著一 首新作None the Wiser回歸2014的 舞臺。這隻來自Essex的搖滾樂隊加 入了吉他的柔和伴奏,創造出不異于 The Courteeners或者 The Enemy的 音樂。

更重要的是,本屆音樂節將于謝大舉辦一場大型 電子舞蹈,將有來自世界各地的D-j參與表演。 三天通票票價£28(包括手續費),Gigantic現已 開始售票。市區里的同學可以直接去The Harley 或者The Leadmill直接買票,免手續費。

來自Sheffield本土的Toddla T帶著自 己的標誌性表演 Toddla T Sound,連 續第三年參加音樂節。去年夏天bbc 一號電臺已經在世界範圍內宣傳他的 演出,而Shola Ama的加入獻唱更是 讓該演出錦上添花。

樂隊專訪 : Drenge 繼去年夏天成功發表首張專輯以來,Drenge又開始了 巡演,我們在途中採訪到Eoin Loveless,兩名成員之 一,看看他對目前的獲得的成功有什麽感受。

Hi Eoin!最近怎麼樣?聽說你在休息。

的事情,這很好。

正在看我朋友在PS3製作一個摔跤手的角色,酷 似Louis Theroux紀錄片里的某個人。

Drenge這個夏天有什麽計劃?

我第一次聽說你們的 時候你們還只是一個新建的 Sheffield樂隊,突然之間你們成了衛報的頭條, 還加入了滾石唱片 – 這種劇烈的變化是不是讓人 不知所措?快一年了,對這種狀態有沒有適應些 了?

很多假期,很多週末,平時也沒有什麽做的,著 手下一張專輯的製作吧。 什麽時候再來Sheffield?

最好的做法是別去想它。我只專注在自己的工作 上,無視其他。

不清楚,我們本來打算在Plug演出的可是所有 的場地都租出去了。我還想在Leadmill和其他我 們曾經表演過的地方演出,希望今年年底前有機 會。

聽說你們正在錄製唱片?有沒有什麽新聞可以透 露?曲風有沒有大變化?

我非常喜歡你的歌詞,可以透露一下寫作的過程 么?不過我不想打破你的神秘感……

最奇怪的事情時有人聽完你的演出跑來跟你講他 對音樂的感受。有兩個人曾經告訴我聽這專輯就 像在和自己的女朋友親熱。下一張專輯估計他們 要抱著女朋友一起哭了,絕對是治癒系專輯。

我的建議是別太當回事,我知道很多人都是這 樣。最好是半開玩笑的同時又不失勁爆。

專輯發佈后你們就一直在巡演 – 現在還在進行中 么?自從專輯發表后,現場表演的效果有沒有提 高? 我們各個國家到處跑,所以很有趣。英國的聽眾 看起來比較投入,我也將在更大型的場合演出。 在美國我們都是在大城市演出例如Portland,當 時會場只坐滿了一半,有兩個超級粉絲自從聽了 專輯后一直苦苦等待我們的到來,而大部份人並 不認識我們,完全不在乎。演出的類型不同令每 次的經驗都不一樣,大型、小型、難度高、難度 低,唯一共同點是都有壓力。 作為 兄弟會不會令以後難以脫離樂隊生活? 是的。我們經常可以直接在餐桌上討論樂隊的事 情。事實上根本沒辦法停下來,我們的靈感一直 湧現,不過能夠直接與對方討論創作而不扯其他

我想知道I Don’t Want To Make Love To You這首 歌的創作靈感來源哪裡?實在太好聽了。 我們組建Drenge前不久,碰巧聽到The Dead Weather的I Just Want To Make Love To You’, 十分黑暗。我就是沒辦法唱出那樣的歌詞,太厚 臉皮了,所以我決定把它改頭換面。 Sheffield有太多出色的樂隊了,你最喜歡哪個樂 隊? 是的很多,Best Friends、Blessa、 Avida Dollars、 Seize The Chair,基本上都是我朋友 組的樂隊。 最後一個問題,我覺得我們最好以樂觀的句子結 尾,有什麽靈感沒? 持續前進。 作者:Molly Murray 页#17

樂隊專訪:THUMPERS

剛完成美國的巡演,來自倫敦的兩人樂隊組合Thumpers正 緊鑼密鼓地籌畫即將到來的夏天。我們有幸採訪到Marcus Pepperell,快來聽聽他對即將發佈的專輯的看法……

最近怎麼樣? 嗯,都挺好的。準備自己的專輯歌曲,給別人做 混音。其實今天是該休息的,不過總是在休息那 天靈感泉湧,不過當然這不是什麽壞事。 據我所知你們初一就認識了 – 兩人之間的友誼和 音樂的共同創作這兩種關係相互是否有影響? 沒錯我們倆11歲就認識彼此了,15歲一起組了第 一個樂隊。這對我們的影響很大,很難想像如果 沒有這段友誼會怎樣,尤其是我們在樂器上的演

奏也是相互合作的。John比較幸運,天生就是打 鼓的料,我們互相也會幫助彼此研究樂器。很難 想像我們間的友誼沒有音樂會怎樣。 多多少少音樂都影響了我們的友誼,或好或壞。 我們有自己的相處模式,知道對方的極限。 下個月你們的新專輯就在英國發佈了。有什麽值 得大家期待的么?你會不會想像大家聽這張專輯 的樣子? John和我剛剛還在討論這件事。這張專輯的主

页#15


題是“第一次”,我和他一起長大的,當 我們好不容易到了年齡會一起開車出去 到處逛。我們受到的第一次音樂啓蒙就 在車里,聽到Blur、Rage against the Machine的歌,很有震撼力。你其實可 以選擇聽歌的環境,而當你第一次開車 的時候真的會有一種自由感,所以我強 烈推介大家在車裡聽這張專輯。希望是 一張不錯的車內專輯。 一直以來你們似乎都習慣了DIY的創造 方式,你對這種方式有什麽看法?與 Subpop在美國簽約后是否削弱了你們這 種自主性? 沒有。Subpop一向以高自由度自居,這 是公司的其中一個宗旨。他們只是希望 樂隊們可以盡最大的自由發揮創作,這 樣的公司對不想一輩子只有一張專輯的 樂隊來講很適合。 如今樂隊想要自由發揮創作相對要簡單 些,不一定要工作室才能錄製唱片。不 過巡演和彩排並不是樂隊自主做得來 的。 五月份又要啟程巡演了,大家會對你們 的新專輯有何感想,想到這個緊張么? 專輯其實在美國已經發佈了,而且我們 剛從美國巡演回來。很多人在看演出前 並不知道這張專輯,那是他們第一次聽 到這些歌詞 – 有很多歌詞。緊張是必然 的,但是我們希望聽眾們更投入。引起 共鳴和投入其中是我們做音樂的氣質所 在。 聽你們的歌總會帶給人夏天的感覺,今

年夏天有什麽打算?有沒有特別期待的 樂隊演出? 5月發佈新專輯,然後巡演和音樂節。 關於音樂節我還不能透露太多,不過我 們的演出跟平時週末的差不多,會演奏 Secret Garden Party。 你們倆之前都有樂隊經驗(兩人曾是Pull Tiger Tail的成員),不過作為Thumpers 這樣一隻新樂隊感覺有什麽不同么? 非常不同,那大概是一年半到兩年前的 事了。我們需要舒緩壓力,需要重新振 作創造一個純粹用音樂表達自己的環 境。 對新樂隊或者即將組成的樂隊們,有什 麽建議? 一定要在進入音樂產業之前錄製儘量多 的專輯,樹立自己的目標,精神上的自 我認同度越高越好。 倫敦如何?很多樂隊選擇在當地先做出 點作為再去首都發展。什麽促使你們一 開始就進軍倫敦? 我們不時提到家鄉在Warwickshire,所 以大家想到我們自然聯想到Warwickshire。但實際上我們在倫敦近十年了, 自從進入金史密斯大學以來就居住在這 裡。所以某程度上來講我們就是一隻倫 敦樂隊,當然Warwickshire依然是我們 的家鄉。 我們很期待你們在5月24日在Leadmill的 演出, 至今為止有沒有在Sheffield表演 的經驗? 經常在這裡表演,我超級喜歡Sheffield!曾經和Blessa一起演出過,他們 很棒。Screaming Maldini也很不錯!以 前也在Tramline音樂節和Beacons表演 過,我真的挺喜歡Sheffield的。

布洛蒂·達勒 布洛蒂·達勒于去年宣佈正在創作新的曲 目,引起了一陣反響。如今她再次宣佈準 備於今年發行單飛后第一張專輯,反響更 為劇烈。

歡迎來到Sheffield。巡迴演唱會進行得如 何? 目前為止一切順利。我很喜歡英國。天氣 很好 – 我喜歡下雨天。我住在洛杉磯,已 經厭倦了晴空萬里的日子。第一次來到這 裡很開心。

這位蒸餾器和噴絲頭樂隊(Distillers and Spinnerette)前主唱至今已經擁有一段漫 長和狂野的音樂生涯 – 15歲就簽約唱片公 司,20來歲就在世界範圍內巡迴演唱 – 而 如今到達而立之年,與石器時代皇后樂隊 (Queens Of The Stone Ag)主唱喬希·霍 姆的婚姻、身為人母的生活是否已經馴服 了這位搖滾女王?

介紹一下你的新專輯,雙倍愛情(Diploid Love)? 專輯是關於當下的生活。雙倍愛情(Diploid Love)對於我來說是感同身受的創 作,關於生活,關於創作。探索了現代生 活,在逆境中生長強大甚至得到心靈上的 淨化。專輯的創作花了幾年的時間,我做 事情不喜歡趕。

布洛蒂·達勒來到Sheffield準備在the Leadmill的第一場演出,我們趁機採訪到她……

專輯中最喜歡的歌是哪首? 妓女派對(Parties for Prostitutes)。是首 很有趣的歌。 一直打算要單飛么? 從來沒有刻意打算這件事但是我挺喜歡作 為一個獨立的歌手的感覺。我一直很羡慕 PJ Harvey她們那些人,全身心投入,我想 要那種自由。就像你剛學會開車,第一次 獨立上路開往任何地方的那種興奮。 會想念樂隊的陪伴么? 作為一個現場音樂表演者,巡演時會帶上 自己的樂隊。只有在工作室錄製的時候才 會一個人,那種獨立性恰恰是我喜歡的 – 例如我想打鼓就打鼓。 有沒有想過從事其他職業? 這是我唯一的職業,也是我熱愛的職業。 專輯的所有歌都是你寫的,而且大部份樂 器伴奏都是由你演奏的 – 有什麽是你不擅

页#7


長的么? 可能是鋼琴吧 – 還有一萬種其他可能。這 可以說是我的下一個挑戰,我12歲就開始 彈吉他,一直練習各種樂器并樂在其中。 我丈夫癡迷于貝斯—很多人不知道這個秘 密。我剛認識他的時候因為自己是個菜鳥 所以很嫉妒他,因為他我開始彈貝斯,當 時就覺得我得把這個樂器學會。 會想家么? 當然想,這是我第一次離家這麼長時間, 為期3個星期的巡演至今才過了一個星期。 我一天和孩子們facetime兩三次,還給他 們寄了明信片。不過好處是現在看書報雜 誌或者看電視的時候不會有人爬到你身上 或者朝你頭上扔枕頭。 下一步的計劃是什麽? 會洛杉磯一段時間,今年夏天再來英國 參加Leeds/Reading的音樂節,一定很有 趣。 作者:潔西卡·福格蒂
