PREVIEWS

TWIN FALLS

THE LOUD CLOUD

The label has an impressive release schedule lined up for 2014 but receives its proper launch over Christmas 2013, with the release of a Twin Falls Christmas EP entitled Come Christmas, Break My Heart. The EP comes in a beautifully packaged black 'USB Cracker' featuring various pieces of hand made artwork and merchandise inside. The band will also host their own Xmas party by opening up the doors of their Wincanton rehearsal space on Saturday 21st December. Guests include BILLY SHINBONE (of FLIPRON) and DESIGN. The space holds a mere 80 to 100 people, so the £3 tickets are highly limited and only available in advance from The Loud Cloud site. Visit www.the-loud-cloud.com to browse what's on offer or book your tickets. Yeovil Live Magazine readers will receive 15% off their first order by entering the discount code: YEOLIVEXMAS upon checkout. TWIN FALLS + BILLY SHINBONE + DESIGN @ The Nog Inn, South Street, Wincanton, BA9 9DL. 8pm. £3. 01963 32998 / www.the-loud-cloud.com.

THE LOUD CLOUD RECORDING COMPANY is a digital and physical outlet of independent music, art and print curated and maintained by the band TWIN FALLS. Initially started in early 2013 as a means to distribute Twin Falls' recorded work, The Loud Cloud is no regular artist-owned record company. The label boasts digital, CD, vinyl, shirts, books, prints, and artwork from the band's favourite musicians, writers and artists. All lavishly packaged with much finesse, thought and love (an idea which grew from Twin Falls' second full length record 'May All Your Dreams Be Full Of Light', which came with it's own exclusively brewed bottle of real ale). The Loud Cloud musical releases are delivered via immediate digital download (at a higher quality than iTunes etc) and are then followed by a physical package being delivered to your door, free of charge within the UK (postal charges are applied to orders outside of the UK). In addition to that, 100% of sale profits go directly to the respective artist, as they should, not to Apple or Spotify.

YEOVIL LITERARY PRIZE The annual international writing competition, the YEOVIL LITERARY PRIZE run by the YEOVIL COMMUNITY ARTS ASSOCIATION has seen past winners become published writers and, at the recent Yeovil Literary Festival, many were featured reading from their work to an enthusiastic audience, in the YLP Winners Past and Present event. The Prize has three categories, offering an opportunity to all aspiring writers of novels, short stories or poetry. All genres can be entered by anyone over the age of 18 years. This is an international competition where all voices and all cultures are covered but it’s great to find that, over the years, many of the high achievers have been from the West Country. In 2012 the Yeovil Creative Writers group were thrilled to find that one of their members, Chip Tolson, had been placed second in the Short Story category and even more thrilled to find that he had secured first place in that category, in 2013, with his moving story Let it be Anthea. The fact that Chip’s work has, in consecutive years, caught the attention of two sets of esteemed judges from the publishing world, shows what a consistently good writer he has become. This year, third place in the Short Story category was taken by Elizabeth Underwood, who writes under the name of Elizabeth McLaren. Her story Lola the Carolla resonated with every parent who has ever waited at home whilst their offspring drove the family car for the first time after passing their test. A poignant and beautifully written story. Elizabeth also qualified for the extra award given by the YCAA, the Western Gazette Best Local Writer Award and this was presented by Emma Slee, editor of the Western Gazette, at the YCAA & Waterstones Man Booker Evening. For those who enjoy reading, rather than writing, a good story - the YCAA has launched the Lunchtime Book Group. These informal meetings enable all readers to meet like-minded people in a relaxed atmosphere from 12noon until 2pm in the Octagon Theatre Café. You bring your lunch, buy a hot or soft drink from the café and sit back and chat about the featured books for that month. Check the dates and details on the web site www.yeovilarts.com, or pick up a flyer in the Octagon or Yeovil Library. The Yeovil Literary Prize 2014 opens for entries on 1st January. See www.yeovilprize.co.uk for details. The second Yeovil Literary Festival will be from Friday 7th November to Sunday 9th November 2014. Not many towns can boast a thriving writers’ group, a literary festival and an international literary prize. Yeovil is now, well and truly, on the literary map! Sue Yockney, YCAA

PAUL STICKLAND PRIVATE VIEW I have enjoyed many exhibition private views in galleries around the region, sipping wine and exchanging pleasantries with artists and patrons alike but I’ve not been to one quite like this. Paul Stickland’s work is a delight. He is a renowned illustrator and author of children’s books and his work ranges from highly detailed drawings of Christmas scenes which reminded me of books from my childhood to amusing doodles of cats. Some of these have been enhanced with computer generated surfaces or with various pieces scanned by Paul - most notably some script from an old letter. My favourite illustrations were for a series called Barely There in which toy bears and rabbits appear to fade into their surroundings. They are superb examples of his technical ability and fertile imagination. And a special mention must go to the reworking of a portrait of Mozart and steampunk inspired portraits. Also, by the magic that is technology, some of his images have been transferred to plates, t-shirts, mugs and other items available from his website. To shift the evening into another gear, local band Design played a short set and their brand of punk-pop (or poppy punk!) was well received by the arty crowd. If you haven’t seen them before then check the listings pages in this very magazine, they’re sure to be on somewhere near you. Scoop Malloy

REVIEW

FAT MARROW BLUES BAND

And wow, these guys haven’t lost it. The music was a touch of class, and within a few songs the ladies and gents started approaching the dance floor. As the name very much suggests, ‘The Marrows’ are fundamentally a Blues Band with songs that are toe-tappingly catchy and well arranged, leaving much scope for the members to let their skills shine.

FRIDAY 26 OCTOBER @ THE QUICKSILVER MAIL, YEOVIL This was a special night for local blues beterans ‘The Fat Marrows’ as this would mark the 20th anniversary of the coming together of well known local figures uniting to make some finely polished blues and rock with a hint of jazz and funk. Featured on BBC2’s ‘Short Stories’ in 1998, the band has acquired a somewhat ‘cult’ following within the mature rural middle class and everyone had travelled on down to the Quicksilver Mail especially to witness this prestigious moment. As I entered the back room at the Quicksilver I was immediately hit with surprise by how many people had turned up for the show. The hall was scattered with tables, leaving little room to manoeuvre to the bar and most were sat with eager eyes awaiting the starting act. Unfortunately I was out chatting with the filmmakers from ‘Short Stories’, so I missed watching the first band perform, but from what I heard outside they were sounding tight and rockin’! But it was the Marrows that everyone wanted to sink their teeth into, and I was lucky enough to nuzzle into the front amid the tables to get a great view.

The set had many funky jazz style break downs, letting the keyboardist, rhythm section and saxophonist free to improvise. The guitarists were on form, slickly laying down their licks, whilst lead singer Chris Cleaver paved the way with many hot bluesy numbers providing an easy platform for the crowd to get on down and groove! It was great to see some familiar faces on the dance floor (you know who you are!) and I was astounded by the response The Marrows received. It was a showcase of class local talent and a special night for all involved, so a huge thank you to Fat Marrow Boys and the Quicksilver for providing a quality top class night of indulgent music, and proving that even though its 20 years on, the Fat Marrows have still got fat stacks of rhythm.
