Bragging rights

Artists hate having to define their music by genre or style – a modern day necessity when it comes to operating in the digital space of iTunes and Spotify - but for Billy Bragg’s people – filling out those online forms must’ve been a complete mind-fuck - search political, comedic, pub-rousing, urban folk love songster on the web and your computer will say no! We are proud to be part of the support crew on Billy Bragg’s return to New Zealand for his - Ain’t Nobody That Can Sing Like Me Tour that includes a Quake Benefit show in Christchurch.

Billy Bragg, ‘the Bard from Barking’, famously started out as a tank driver in the British Army. Things didn’t work out – “When you’ve driven one tank, you’ve driven them all” – and in early 1982 he found himself back on the streets of Barking, writing songs. Drawing inspiration from the DIY ethos of punk rock, he decided to take on the world single- handedly, armed with only an electric guitar. Bragg’s songs were more punk than folk and he’s often described his earliest incarnation as ‘a one-man Clash’. His first album, Life’s a Riot with Spy vs Spy came out in 1983.

Bragg was politicised by Rock Against Racism in the late 1970s. He marshalled his songs in opposition to Margaret Thatcher, supporting the miners when they went on strike in 1984 and subsequently founding Red Wedge, a collective of left wing musicians who campaigned for the defeat of Thatcher at the 1987 election. Throughout his career, Billy Bragg has remained contemporary, providing his insightful, clear-eyed yet hopeful commentary on our times through social, political and technological change.

Although often defined by his political songs, Bragg is also a writer of great love songs. He said “I write about the things make me angry:

sometimes it’s the government, sometimes it’s the girl.” His songs describe the emotional peaks and troughs of love, navigating the difficult terrain of modern relationships.

2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Woody Guthrie, folk singer and ‘dust-bowl troubadour’, a prolific writer whose songs, ballads,

troubadour’, a prolific writer whose songs, ballads, prose and poetry championed the plight of the underdog.

prose and poetry championed the plight of the underdog. Bragg has a special musical affinity with Woody a and has dedicated the first half of his show in his honour – when Woody’s daughter Nora unearthed a treasure trove of her father’s unrecorded lyrics after his death, Bragg and Wilco worked together setting these to music, creating the critically acclaimed Mermaid Avenue albums. The Complete Sessions has just been released, including Mermaid Avenue Vol. III. Bragg will play songs from Woody’s extensive repertoire as well as the Mermaid Avenue albums, giving audiences new insights into one of the most influential figures in popular music, a man who inspired artists from Bob Dylan to Joe Strummer, as well as Bragg himself.

In the show’s second half, Bragg will take a trip through his back catalogue. In nearly three decades of performing and activism, Bragg, described recently by the London Times as a “national treasure”, has crafted an incredible collection of songs traversing the personal and the political. A guardian of the radical dissenting tradition that stretches back over centuries of political, cultural, and social history, Bragg is a consummate performer and gifted raconteur. His live shows, like his songs, are funny, warm, sad and true.

AlBUM ReVIeW FRANK OCEAN CHANNEL ORANGE AlBUM oF THe WeeK Suddenly more famous as the result

Suddenly more famous as the result of a tabloid media-fuelled album release, freshly “out” star Frank ocean — famous for many things, including work with “that group” odd future, who got infamously scratched from Auckland’s 2012 Big Day out because of homophobia — has kerb-stomped the rule book for hip-hop convention.

Riding on the waves of his 2011 mix- tape nostalgia, ULTRA, Ocean’s career

is built on songwriting for some

casual buds such as John Legend (Bieber too, kids) and collaborating with heavyweights including Jay-Z. His debut album, Channel Orange, has been anxiously anticipated by critics, musicians and fans alike. So, should you buy into the hype? Yes.

Although Channel Orange debuted

at number two in the UK, it will be

a surprise if any of the tracks spend

time being relentlessly bashed on the airwaves. The album is good – really good – but is far from the bass- heavy or catchy 16 bars that usually break out.

It’s meticulously crafted and soulfully personal – brave even. The debut is, in most cases, a defining moment in

a musician’s career. Aside from being

a step from poverty to regular eating,

it’s their first opportunity to offload. More often than not, it’s doused in an emotional rawness that will rarely be repeated. Ocean’s is screaming for attention, checking boxes from reviewer to reviewer — defined, inspired, seductive and fresh.

Channel Orange is a poignant poetic dissemination, wrapped in layers of truth, delivered in a way that hints at a personal affinity with hip-hop. The lyrical content is poised, polished

and restrained enough to achieve the one thing that characterises a good musician: accessibility.

It’s all very cleverly hidden in an easy listening R&B style. The first couple of listens will dance over the top of your head. You’ll groove along to some sweet, chill melodies without even realising it’s not a very happy album. ‘Thinkin ‘Bout You’ evokes comparisons with the graceful, relaxing ambience associated with

John Legend. Then when you actually listen to it, it reveals itself as a bitter piece of prose, littered with metaphors and even allusion about unreciprocated first love.

Bitterness is a theme repeated. Notable tracks include ‘Pyramids’. Gliding from dub-step to guitar solo, it’s a carefully compiled 10-minute wonder superficially about hookers

(it also gives off vibes about the exploitation of Africans that could fill an essay). ‘Super Rich Kids’ ranks highly, possibly inspired by a fusion of Supertramp with The Chemical Brothers, it features Earl Sweatshirt and is an ode for the disaffected silver-spoon-fed.

‘Forrest Gump’ is one of the tunes that

pricked the ears of the oh-no-it’s-gay

brigade (fair in a genre associated with heteronormativity). It’s a sentimental outro with a haunted- organ lurking in the background of some cleverly moulded beats, echoes, whistles and sound delivered to another powerful set of lyrics. Channel Orange is a demonstration of one suave mo-fo and a testament to his fore-boding reputation. Listen to it — that includes you too white kids.

Renowned Auckland-based theatre company, The Dust Palace, brings their new surrealist burlesque into town designed to titillate even the biggest prude. Led by Eve Gordon (who plays Stacey on The Almighty Johnsons), the show is a blend of dance, acrobatics and R-rated comedy. You have been warned.

What happened to our favourite high school friends of 1999? They stopped fucking around (well, all except Stifler), some had kids and most got ‘day jobs’. But when the whole gang of guys gets back together, it’s time to realise not much has changed at all. Expect carnage, nudity and more ‘Stifler’s mom jokes.

There are some things that are guaranteed to be in a Step Up film – clichéd characters, bad acting, astonishingly attractive people – but the one thing audiences expect from the franchise is incredible dancing.

While you’re forced to take the good with the laughably bad, Step Up 4: Miami Heat 3D delivers on the franchise’s promise as well as the film’s title (and what a title it is, read it aloud with me: Step Up 4: Miami Heat 3D).

We follow a flash mob dance crew (unimaginatively called The Mob) seeking recognition through various social media sources. But when some big-shot businessman tries to tear down their neighbourhood, The Mob attempt to prevent his plans through the power of dance.

Basically, if you were to make a Frankenstein’s monster from the

premises of Tower Heist and Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, you’d get Step Up 4. The generically derivative story borders on hilarity, but luckily the film never pretends it is Oscar material, rushing through the requisite plot elements and interrupting them nicely with what’s really important – the dance sequences.

The creativity on display here is amplified by the viral marketing angle and at one point, a sequence sees the crew break into an art exhibition and camouflage themselves as sculptures that come to life one-by-one. You never believe for a second that they’d get away with the stunts they pull, but they’re such a joy to watch that you’re bound to not care.

Like the Subway of Turkish food, Pita Pit has healthy and delicious pitas and wraps. I always see people lining up for Pita Pit which is a good sign. Founded in Canada in the 1950s, a Kiwi on his time over there discovered how awesome it was and decided to bring it back to NZ. You can choose pretty much anything you want with a huge range of salads and meats (vegetarian options also). Now, with four locations around the country – and more due to open soon – it’s taking off like sweet wildfire.

Anyways – fresh and funky, Neighbourhood is nestled in the heart of Kingsland in an old converted garage site – and they have it covered whether it is getting ready for the big one or recovering from the night before. Check in for some sweet beats with Auckland’s finest DJs, then lax out and undo the top button of your jeans with their hearty Sunday roasts.

My first experience of House on Hood was rocking up one Saturday night to experience what can only be described as a pub house party. It’s the best party house on the block. Atmosphere ranges from chilled and low-key during the day, to rowdy front-yard parties to cover bands at night.

ABRAHAM LInCOLn: VAMPIRE HunTER
ABRAHAM LInCOLn: VAMPIRE HunTER

Joining the race for “Super-flick of the Year”, Abraham Lincoln:

Vampire Hunter weaves another layer to the biography of america’s 16th president.

it promises to end the run of the sleazy vampires that have clambered

about the silver screen for way too long now by arming honest abe with an axe and some sweet new kung-fu inspired moves. Abraham Lincoln:

Vampire Hunter is a film adaptation of a piece of ‘bio-fiction’, conceived by author and screen-writer Seth grahame-Smith during his 2009 tour promoting previous book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

grahame-Smith was led to fusing history with vampires by something

as simple as display tables. “that year marked the bicentennial of Lincoln’s birth and many of the bookstores on my promotional tour had two displays: one featured books about Lincoln’s life; the other was

a vampire-themed display, including Twilight and Sookie Stackhouse books (upon which True-Blood is based). it led me to think about combining the two subjects.”

the 2010 tome caught the eyes of hollywood before it was even finished. AL:VH producer and famed director tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, Batman returns, Dark Shadows) decided it was the type of movie he wanted to see. “it felt like it could have the crazy energy of the films of my youth, which had a lot of weird mash-ups of horror movies.”

What makes this movie particularly interesting is that the director hails from russia originally and here he is with his hands on the reigns of a portrayal of one of america’s most precious historical figures. Director timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Night Watch) was originally going to be

a producer on the film, until Burton encouraged him to take control

because he wanted to see Bekmambetov’s version of the story. “a big plus was that timur is from another country, so he provides a different perspective on these characters and historical events,” says Burton.

Lincoln has been given the superhero treatment in this film. he is presented as the USa’s first superhero. Burton said, “Lincoln’s entire life mirrors the classic comic book superhero mythology. it’s a duality: during the day he’s the president of the United States; at night, a vampire hunter.”

grahame-Smith adds, “Lincoln’s life story is an archetypical superhero origin story. he’s as close to an actual superhero as this country’s [USa] ever seen. Forget about vampires. Lincoln had neither family name nor

money. his mother died when he was a youngster. in fact, everybody he loved had died. With no education and armed with just his mind, he became the president and saved the nation.”

twenty nine-year-old Broadway actor Benjamin Walker takes on the role of Lincoln after nailing the famous gettysburg address’ in screen-testing. he has taken on the role of abraham Lincoln: president and human.

“What’s dangerous about playing an icon is not allowing the character to be human,” Walker says. “You must allow the character to be vulnerable or even silly. Luckily tim [Burton] and timur were open to making abraham a flawed, funny and conflicted man.”

the plot of the film unravels as young Lincoln’s mother, nancy, contracts

a disease of “unknown origin” – he knows it’s a vampire bite. nancy was

paramount in instilling Lincoln’s morality, giving him the words, “until everyone is free, we are all slaves”. this poignant moment in history

is also where he came to hate-on his nemesis, his mother’s killer and

vampire Jack Barts.

Barts is played by invercargill-born Marton csokas (Shortland Street, Xena, Aeon Flux) and is an addition to the film’s story. the film unravels as a life-long shit fight between these two characters that evolves into a greater war between humanity and vampire’s over who gets the rights to the nation – disguised by the US civil war.

Special effects were provided by Weta Workshop, but the greatest emphasis has been placed on the action sequences. they were born miles away from the USa in Kazakhstan, out of the mind of fight choreographer igor tsay and his acting School of Fighting Kun-Do. the weaponry (axes, knives, guns and rifles) were all authentically reproduced according to 19th century methods.

girls, you can take your partner to this one – so it’s got one up on Twilight.

on the BacK of their successful north american tour, Sola rosa are bringing their summery sound to our rough new Zealand winter on their first home tour in two and a half years.

getting back into the country at “stupid o’clock” the day before our chat, producer andrew Spraggon sounds weary and tired, but is eager to share his stories from the road.

originally scheduled to head to canada for a one-off show last year, things went pear-shaped and the band pulled out due to the “booking agent being a bit of a dick”. But since making the right connections, the whole thing turned into a “happy accident”, resulting in the recent tour, which took them from Whistler, to Seattle, Los angeles and everything in between.

“We were focused on europe like a lot of other Kiwi bands and it seemed where most of the interest was, but this just happened by total accident. it was wicked and almost not long enough for me.”

aside from battling “insanely hot” weather of a californian summer, the tour was a success, drawing a positive reception from both first timers and long-term dedicated fans.

“We would meet people afterwards and found some die hard fans over there,” says andrew. “there were always people who had driven for miles to see us. i still get surprised. i’m too close to the music, so it always blows me away when people are that dedicated.”

their sixth studio album, Low and Behold, High and Beyond, marks three summers worth of writing – “Most of the writing is done over summer. i write when i feel more positive and when i’m in a good headspace” – but that’s about to change.

Previously shutting himself away in his auckland home (it doubles as a studio), andrew says now they plan to tour more, and changing technology means capturing the vibe and energy of a life on the road is getting easier.

“i have begun to write on the road a lot more,” andrew explains. “i wrote a bunch of beats when i was in La. it takes on a different vibe than anything i would have written in new Zealand. it’s the start of a new process. i think it’s great when you’re on tour, there’s not a lot of downtime, you sleep for anywhere between four to five hours – and with every album the band is collaborating more and more when we are on tour.”

the album also marks a change in their sound, shifting away from the reggae and Latin beats in favour of hip-hop and “nu-soul”.

“i don’t really ever have a direction, i just know what i don’t want to do,” laughs andrew ”which is usually a reaction to getting pigeon holed by the previous album. Get It Together had a lot of labels pinned to it like world music, Latin and reggae and i thought, ‘i don’t want to do that again.’ i stopped listening to a lot of reggae. i didn’t hear anything progressive that i liked and with so much here, we don’t need to be another Kiwi reggae band. i’ll leave that to others.”

after the nationwide tour wraps up, it’s off to australia in September for eight weeks, then back to US and europe before heading home for new Zealand’s own summer.

So what’s the key to keeping it going?

“i don’t have a secret, i just try to stay healthy, eat well and basically do what i’m told,” he muses.

GaMinG QUANTUM CONUNDRUM ps3 Like the very best puzzlers, Quantum Conundrum takes a handful of simple

Like the very best puzzlers, Quantum Conundrum takes a handful of simple concepts, mashes them together, turns them inside out and comes up with situations and solutions that makes your brain beg for mercy. snap. puzzle time.

You’re the twelve-year-old nephew of Professor Quadwrangle. Visiting your uncle for the holidays, you find a mansion full of flying furniture, multiple dimensions and a disembodied voice trying desperately to figure out what the hell went wrong. Before you know it, your uncle is directing you towards a gauntlet that lets you master the mansion’s four dimensions and you start puzzling your way through the mind- bending madness.

And there is a lot of mind-bending going on. Within the mansion, there are four different physical states that can be activated. The first one is the fluffy dimension. When this is active, everything become 10 times lighter. Everything, that is, except for you. So you can activate the fluffy dimension with your gauntlet, pick up a safe and throw it at a window.

If it hits the window in its fluffy state, nothing happens.

The trick is to switch off the fluffy dimension while the safe is in flight. The safe regains its mass, while maintaining its momentum and smashes the window.

There are three other tricks hidden in your uncle’s glove. There’s the heavy dimension, where everything is 10 times heavier, the slow dimension, where everything goes slow (duh) and the reverse gravity dimension. You’ll spend hours building bridges with fluffy furniture stuck to the walls with giant fans, riding safes into the air as you turn off the gravity, or walking over furniture frozen in the air.

It’s very, very smart.

The presentation doesn’t quite live up to the game’s IQ. The whole first person view gets frustrating – being unable to see your feet is really awkward. Also, the professor’s continuous chatter sometimes leans more towards annoying than helpful. Rooms all look the same and the story stumbles – all you’re left with is a series of very good puzzles.

But it is a very good series of puzzles. And the game’s just so smart that, every time you play, your IQ will go up at least ten points - or you’ll have to go for a lie down in a dark room because your brain hurts.

How did you get into this line of work? as a young child i was given a magic set for christmas and it was in my late teens/early 20s that i started mixing psychology and hypnosis together. i initially became a cosmetic scientist [someone who invents women’s make-up] of all things. i went to college ‘cause my parents told me to go because they didn’t think i could make a living as an entertainer. after two and a half years doing that i just got completely fed up with it. i jumped into this full-time, so that’s going back around twelve years now and haven’t looked back since, thankfully.

The term ‘brain-hacker’, what does that mean exactly?

i don’t really believe in mind reading and i don’t believe in psychics,

so that’s why i’ve coined the term ‘brain-hacking’. What i do is use the five known senses to create the illusion of a sixth sense. So our brains are safes or computers, in other words. Some safes only have a two to three digit combination – they’re quite easy to hack into if you know anything about safes. other safes are electronic and have a 10 to 12 digit combination depending on what they are holding inside and they are very difficult to hack into.

Would you describe it as a form of magic per say? Or is it more science based? no, it’s definitely more science based now. With magic, it’s sleight of hand. You always know the outcome is going to be exact. this is a science and you don’t know the exact outcome until you actually try and hack into someone’s brain. it is what it is, which is reading people’s body language – eye movements, subtle cues, facial cues, micro-expressions.

Does that mean you’re reading me right now? Yeah and you’ve got a lot of interesting thoughts i have to tell you, Laura. the viewers at home might want to find out about (laughs).

Can you share any? (Laughs)

i would say that you are a very obsessive person, almost compulsively

so. You’re a bit of a neat freak as well i would say you keep your cD’s in alphabetical order, also externally you’re quite confident, but internally you suffer from your nerves and you would want to work on that. also, i see a big change coming up soon with you, i won’t say where that change is because your boss might not be happy that, but there is a big change coming up for you soon.

Wow, that’s actually quite amazing. I didn’t realize you were reading me the whole time. Yeah, i read everybody. there’s a cameraman and a sound girl in front of us and one of you three people in my peripheral vision is cheating on their partner. and now they are all looking at each other like which one (laughs) (Laughs) that threw me off! i’m nervous now.

Obviously with your kind of work, even though it’s not magic, you’ll still encounter people that are cynical. Is it fun to bust them once you’ve read them? i’m a skeptic myself. i don’t believe in psychics. So i quite enjoy when i get a skeptic into a room because they think very linearly for the most part. they just want to figure out how something is done and they will go to what they consider to be the most logical conclusion, but the most logical conclusion is invariably always wrong, so i use that against them.

You have a lot of celebrities that you do a lot of stuff with. Was there a particular person you enjoyed working with? Sir Bob geldof was interesting because he was such a cynic when he came in. he was grumpy old chap, to be honest, and it was interesting to see the transition of him being a skeptic into a fan by the end. that was kind of interesting from the point of view that it was a challenge. Keanu reeves sticks out too. he completely freaked out because he’s got a phobia of mentalism and magic, so he ran out of a restaurant and never came back. he literally went, “i can’t see a thing, i can’t watch this” – and ran! it was kind of interesting to see him running away from all of his friends and family.

Has anything gone wrong for you? things go wrong all the time, but as a good mentalist, you should always have a couple of escape routes that the audience isn’t aware of. You always think that nothing is going wrong, but really things can go wrong all the time. i remember one time i was on with Jimmy Kimmel in the US. i was performing magic at the time – this is going back around seven or eight years ago – and i do this thing when i pop a black-eyed bean in my ear canal, squeeze it along the side of my face and allow you to feel it, then i pop it out my eye duct and i lost the bean down my ear canal. it went all the way down and stopped at my eardrum.

So for you show in New Zealand this week, what shall we expect? it’s a mixture of me hacking into people’s brains and planting thoughts, extracting thoughts, comedy, mentalism, hypnotism, profanity, and nudity. Don’t come if you’re easily offended. it’s a night of escapism from everyday life and just to remember what it was to wonder again. i want to see people laughing until their faces hurt and in the same breath, i want to see them amazed as well. to leave the theatre looking at each other going how did he do that? So it’s a night of fun, but it’s a night of wonder and amazement.
