Fighters or Terrorists? The Freedom Theatre’s The Siege Takes Us Inside A Grim Stand Off At Christianity’s Holiest Site.

By  Ben Gelblum, Contributing Editor @BenGelblum The Siege by The Freedom Theatre is the largest tour ever mounted by a Palestinian theatre company in the UK. But according to the Mail on Sunday - the 10 city UK tour is “£15,000 of public money given to show based on the words of Hamas killers.” The Freedom Theatre in Jenin refugee camp in Palestine has been an artistic hub of cultural resistance to occupation since it was established in 2006. Obtaining visas,...

Record Review: Faith No More – Sol Invictus

By Kane Power (@ElHeavio) Faith No More is like an old friend that has shown up at your door with a good bottle of 18-year-old whisky. You are so excited to see them again that you get blind drunk and hug more than usual, wiping away tears and promising not to be apart for so long next time. In that perfect, shameful moment you remember why you became friends in the first place and why your friendship has lasted all...

Record Review: The Vaccines – English Graffiti

By Declan Roberts (@DeclanMR) After a relatively short time in the spotlight The Vaccines have covered a number of indie genre conventions. They straddled garage with ‘Wreckin' Bar’ and ‘Norgaard’, juggled ballads like ‘Post Break-Up Sex’ and the heartfelt love song ‘Melody Calling’. This is a dynamic band. With this said and done, it's hard to know what to expect from English Graffiti, especially after the band openly stated that they want the album to be “something that sounds amazing next year and then...

Record Review: Paul Weller – Saturns Pattern

By Dan Drage (@DanDrage) It’s not easy being an admirer of Paul Weller. First and foremost, there’s the baggage – Britpop’s foul and lingering stench, the zombie apocalypse of knucklehead fans who spend entire shows screaming for Eton Rifles like they’re somehow entitled to it, the discrepancies between the power of his touring bands and sometimes slapdash recorded output, his own predilection for trash talking his lyrical ability and the banal labels (legend, Modfather, national treasure etc.) continually regurgitated by...

Creating space with Etch: Peckham’s open theatre project

Theatre can sometimes seem like a closed shop, one of stuffy, expensive theatres, or intimidating, pretentious improv nights in achingly cool bars. Then there’s Etch. The Peckham theatre project is about to turn just one year old, but with award nominations and international festivals already under its belt, the young venture is far from am-dram. Etch is the brainchild of Lucy Hollis and Ruth Milne, two Scottish actors, who set up the project as a sort of antidote to some of...

20 Of The Craziest Eurovision Outfits Ever

Since its inception in 1956 The Eurovision Song Contest has been as much about (let’s face it) terrible music as it has the terrible outfits. In fact, the ‘singing’ is generally overshadowed by what can only be described as some true fashion disasters ranging from zombie and monster outfits to sequinned bodysuits and some very dubious national dress. So, to celebrate 60 years of unforgettable style STYLIGHT have rounded up 20 of the absolute craziest, most wonderful outfits ever to grace...
