  • Winter Festival – One Church – 2017

    Winter Festival – One Church – 2017 Winter Festival – One Church – 2017 It was the first Saturday of December and Brighton was in full festive buzz. The One Church had been taken over by SOTONES, a co-operative from Southampton, who were celebrating their tenth birthday along with a new compilation showcasing some of the bands they have worked with over the last ten years. With the headliner being the Moulettes, their last show in Brighton before taking a year off, along with a host of local favourites and lesser known bands.
  • Elderflower Fields - Pippingford Park - 2017

    Elderflower Fields - 26th-29th May - Pippingford Park Elderflower Fields - Pippingford Park - 2017 Last year I reported on this festival as a day tripper, and not as a camper. We were enamoured with it so much that we took the plunge to camp this year. Although it was a momentous mission to get from the entrance to where we eventually set up, it was worth it in the end, thanks in part to the kind weather. and the fact that this is a delightful, small scale, family-friendly affair set in Pippingford Park, a wooded and parkland estate set in-between Uckfield and East Grinstead.
  • Alternative Escape - 2016

    Alternative Escape 2016 Alternative Escape - 2016 If only Brighton could be like this all year round. There’s nothing quite like flitting between the city’s venues, hearing live music bleed out onto every street. Sadly, it had to end - but not before a lot of good music was played in a lot of venues. The Alternative Escape has grown every year, and this year its lineup was a serious affair, although one journalist alone was able to take in precious little.
  • The Great Escape - 2016

    The Great Escape 2016 The Great Escape - 2016 Some Brighton Festival and Fringe and media types have over the years bemoaned the fact that The Great Escape (TGE) happens slap bang in the middle of the May festivities. It means that the on-going celebration of the arts is partially halted in its tracks while the new music juggernaut arrives in convoy from around the globe, taking over many of the city's venues and a few of its streets for three very long days. What it does however is perfectly compliment the sense of occasion. Yes, the festival programs a small number of excellent ‘contemporary’ shows, but in general it and the fringe are far more geared towards theatre, comedy, spoken word and ‘performance’. Like the concurrent Artists Open Houses, TGE is a distinct strand that is the veritable icing on the...

  • The Land of Hope and Fury - A compilation of contemporary protest songs

    The Land of Hope and Fury - A compilation of contemporary protest songs The Land of Hope and Fury - A compilation of contemporary protest songs As music writer Dorian Lynsky says in his foreword, writing a protest song has never been easy, but for any artist who cares deeply about the state of things, then they find a way of articulating that and just see what happens. And, as it happens, many of the artists on this excellent compilation of 'protest' songs have found a way.
  • St Ann's Wells Gardens Spring Festival - 2015

    St Ann's Well Gardens Spring Festival - 2015 For those of you who don't know St Ann's Well Gardens Spring Festival is held to raise money for the preservation and restoration of the park. There is a fabulous selection of food, activities for the children and of course there is the music. This is mainly arranged on the Main Stage up at the top of the park, along with a few things like drumming ensembles performing around the park. Over the years this has been growing in stature and is often a mix of local young talent and local touring bands. So with a typical grey bank holiday skies looming overhead I headed down to the park to check out the music. As I got there The Speak were just coming onto the stage. They are your fairly bog standard pub rock band type affair. It looks...
  • The Great Escape - 2015

    The Great Escape - 2015 The Great Escape - 2015 Jeff Hemmings Well, that was something else, wasn't it? As a colleague from local radio station Juice FM put it: 'That was the best three days! I didn't want it to stop!' I'll wager that a great many others, both industry people and punters, shared that sentiment when they staggered out of the last venue, bar, or hostelry, for the last time.  
  • Moulettes - Interview - 2014

    Moulettes - Interview - 2014 Moulettes - Interview - 2014   So, what exactly is a Moulette? An inter-web search reveals nothing except this band and some rather unlikely reference to a hairstyle, as defined by the rather wonderful Urban Dictionary: the moulette is a stylized modern mullet, originating in Canada. It is essentially a curly combination of hat hair (in Canadian winters, hats are a must), the mullet and the famous hair swoosh (optional but encouraged)." Could this be the inspiration for The Moulettes? As Hannah Moulette (they refer themselves individually as a Moulette) has said before: "… I had a free haircut one day that turned into a mullet. We were joking that it was a moule-ette…." So, there you have it, a female...
  • Moulettes - The Haunt - 24th April 2014

    Moulettes Moulettes - The Haunt - 24th April 2014 I’ve been a big fan of the Moulettes since I discovered their quirky chamber-folk sound back in 2010 at the late night tents of Secret Garden Party Festival. With their high energy and sensational stage presence, Moulettes always guarantee an audience with smiles from ear to ear and achy bones from all the dancing that is bound to occur.

  • Moulettes - The Haunt - 25th April 2013

    Moulettes Moulettes - The Haunt - 25th April 2013 I was intrigued when I saw Moulettes and The Sly Tones were sharing a bill so I made my way down to The Haunt to see if it would work! Admittedly I’d never seen Moulettes before, or listened to much of their stuff. I had vague ideas of them being a fairly esoteric folk group so I was imagining a real clash when they came up against the Sly Tones brand of progressive rock music.
