Pamflet: London femme zine returns

Pamflet, a self-described “London grrrl-culture zine”, launched its thirteenth issue this week, after a four-year hiatus. The zine’s creators, Anna-Marie Fitzgerald and Pheobe Frangoul, hosted a night of wine and chat at Soho’s The Trouble Club – all female member’s club / den of intellectual feminine iniquity, founded by the Evening Standard’s Joy Lo Dico – to celebrate the occasion. “We heard about The Trouble Club and came here for a drink,” said Anna-Marie. “We thought it sounded fun.” The...

Review – The Heart of Adrian Lovett

By Richard de Winter  @rgdewinter  @TLE Now it may have escaped your notice, gentle Reader, but there is a General Election imminent.  You could be forgiven for not knowing.  It’s not like the newspapers and news bulletins have been blathering on about nothing else for the last few weeks, or that social media have been filled with ever more offensive streams of invective.  Some of you may not even be aware that a worrying number of people seem to believe...

TLE meets…Andrew McNally

By Rob Foster How has your career in investment informed your belief in equity, and how did you come to write the book? I started to have these conversations with colleagues a couple of years ago, based on the premise that equity is the only way to access newly created wealth. The price of your house may go up & down, price of a gold bar may go up & down, if you own a bond it might pay interest,...

Is Poetry the new Comedy/Black/Slash/Whatever?

By Monkey Poet “What do you do?” “I'm a poet...” “I mean to put food on the table.” “I poet.” “....!!!!” I've had this conversation so many times over the last five years, I stopped counting at 'hundreds'. However, due to the current resurgence in Poetry's popularity, with John Cooper-Clarke doing Arenas, Tim Minchin's beat epic Storm, Kate Tempest on the cover of the New York Times, Holly McNish in the Guardian...no wonder the earthy colloquial response of “eff off!”...

The Feminist Library turns 40

Like all powerful, female forces of nature, London’s Feminist Library is just getting better with age. To celebrate its 40th year, here are some of the arts highlights from its programme. Women and Tattoos 25th April 2015 With the amazing discussion-starter “Why you should never, ever get a tattoo (but having a baby is fine)”, pop along to the Library to debate the contradictory nature of what society says women should and shouldn’t do with their bodies. Here’s something for...

London’s Outdoor Art

Not sure about you but we’re pretty excited about the weather we’ve been having recently, and it can be kind of hard to resist the urge to spend every spare moment reclining in the park with a tepid Red Stripe. But catching some of the recent rays doesn’t have to mean missing out on culture in our fair city. Check out these London art walks. SLAM Fridays The South London Art Map (SLAM to its friends) runs Friday art tours and...

Oppenheimer – Vaudeville Theatre

By Jack Peat, TLE Editor The irony of physics is that for many years it lacked what you might call a physical application. Most physicists were concerned with the trivial pursuit of understanding the fabric of the universe rather than applying their skills to something more practical, and thus their art was largely the preserve of laboratories and lecture halls. World War II changed all that. As fascist and socialist ideals mixed to create a melting pot of animosity in...

Record Review: The Griswolds – Be Impressive

By Alex Jones (@Alex_Jonze) Oh to live in Australia, the sun, the sea, the sand…the sun again. It must be a joyful existence, I mean even their rock bands are chirpy! Case in point is four piece pop rockers The Griswolds. The quartet from Sydney tackles some pretty heavy topics on their debut album “Be Impressive”, not that you’d know it from the musicianship. Every song is bathed in a glow of pop goodness. Opener “16 Years” describes the sensation...

New Track: Teal – ‘Klangfarbenmelodie’

By Declan Roberts (@DeclanMR) Kent-based duo Teal have returned with their first new track since last years' self-titled debut EP. 'Klangfarbenmelodie' features huge crescendo riffs and driving drum beats that sees the band taking their sound in an entirely new direction. Imagine the lovechild of Jon Hopkins and Giorgio Moroder in their early stages and you're somewhere close to 'Klangfarbenmelodie', popping and dropping in all the right places. Promising stuff indeed from the duo. I caught up with Rosa Loveridge-Green (drums) and...
