  • Ezra Furman – Brighton Dome – 26th May 2018

    Ezra Furman - Brighton Dome - 26th May 2018 Ezra Furman – Brighton Dome – 26th May 2018 Brighton in May is a simply wonderful time. Not only do you have The Great Escape, Brighton Festival and Fringe but, due to the start of the European festival season, we see renowned international stars flock to our sunny shores to play special shows. As such, Ezra Furman, off the back of his phenomenal 2018 release Transangelic Exodus, which we called, “An angry record about America right now, in the vein of a terrific, detailed and structured album” arrived at the Brighton Dome for a very special show for the Brighton Festival. On this evidence, Ezra Furman’s rise through cult status into international stardom is secured, as he looks and sounds every bit the superstar.
  • Brighton Festival 2018 launches with David Shrigley as Director

    Brighton Festival 2018 launches with David Shrigley as Director Brighton Festival 2018 launches with David Shrigley as Director The 52nd Brighton Festival, the largest of its kind in the UK, announced its programme this week, with a launch event at Brighton Dome, attended by this year's Guest Artistic Director, David Shrigley. A relative unknown, Shrigley operates in the world of the visual arts, as a lively, sly, sometimes subversive illustrator, writer, film-maker, conceptualist and sculptor. You may have seen his Really Goodsculpture on Trafalgar Square's Fourth Plinth. Or his 2013 Turner Prize-nominated installation David Shrigley: Brain Activity. Or perhaps his headless stuffed ostrich, or his cast of a single tooth (Brass Tooth) which he then created multiple editions of, and sold at £1200...
  • Ezra Furman – Transangelic Exodus

    Ezra Furman - Transangelic Exodus Ezra Furman – Transangelic Exodus The underlying context of Ezra Furman’s latest record, Transangelic Exodus,is a tough one to tackle. Explaining the record, Furman declared that the record chronicles being, “In love with an angel, and a Government is after us, and we have to leave home because angels are illegal, as is harbouring angels”. So far so fantastical, but it’s far deeper than the surface suggests. He declares that, “The term ‘transangelic’ refers to the fact people become angels because they grow wings. They have an operation, and...
  • Ezra Furman - Perpetual Motion People

    Ezra Furman - Perpetual Motion People Born in the USA, rock'n'roll - originally defined as music that at it's core involved simple melodies, big beats; a fusion of rhythm 'n 'blues with country music - strikes a deep chord within the American psyche. Rock'n'roll á la Elvis, Jerry, Buddy, Chuck et al didn't percolate much into the hearts and heads of the British until the likes of The Beatles - early lovers of the sound slowly drifting across the Atlantic via hard-to-get imports - borrowed the bits they liked, and gave it a British identity. But, to this day, despite the like of The...
  • The Great Escape - 2014

    The Great Escape 2014 The Great Escape Festival 2014 It’s a remarkable beast, this three-day showcase of new music from around the globe. Music lovers descend upon Brighton in their thousands (approximately 15000+), slap bang in the middle of the month-long arts and culture feasts that are the venerable Brighton Festival and England’s largest open access fringe, Brighton Fringe Festival. In fact, The Great Escape takes over to such an extent that the aforementioned festivals practically stop in their tracks, as if waiting for a passing train that cannot stop, such is its power and momentum. Occasionally, you come across a culture vulture who bemoans this interloper, but all-in-all it’s a brilliant addition to what is a veritable playground of arts and cultural entertainment in the month of...
