VIDEO: Wetherspoon’s Pizza Review

Wetherspoon’s now do Pizza and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try it. The toppings on the Spicy Meat Feast lead to more Beer consumption but that’s probably a win for both parties. It seems to be a trial at the moment and is being tested in a few Wetherspoon’s pubs and I managed to track it down in Gatwick Airport, of all places!

The Pizza’s were a little more expensive at our location as the entire menu was in line with the higher end of Wetherspoon’s menu’s at airports, financial districts and tourist areas etc. but from what I have seen so far most locations trialling the cuisine have stuck to the regular menu pricing and the Pizzas generally range from £4.99 – £6.99.

REVIEW: Humber Street Sesh 2016

 In it’s 5th year now, Street Sesh is an annual festival held in Hull to delivering the best and new upcoming talents the north has to offer. Drawing in a crowd of over 30,000 it was definitely not a day to be missed! Humber Street Sesh is a combination of over 200 + unsigned bands, local artists and DJ’s performing across 14 stages, alongside various food stalls and restaurants. With face painting, BMX stunt displays and arts and craft stalls its a day out for all ages. Set in the picturesque marina it’s a true showcase of everything Hull has to offer as its title of “City of culture” approaches in 2017.
HSS2016 1
First band to be checked out was the Dantevilles, a indie pop four -piece from Manchester with dual vocalists. A set full of upbeat catchy riffs performing songs from recent release of “Calm before the storm”. Although the baking sun and still being early on into the day made them seem just that. With their song “It Might Be Tomorrow” airing on Radio 1 that week as Huw Stephens’ tip of the week, it’s worth giving this band another look at.
HSS2016 8

Gracing the stage next was the energetic two piece Hot Soles hailing from Sheffield. Fresh from playing sets at a stint of festivals including Secret Garden Party, they Delivered a set of pure rock and roll, mixed in with deep groves and humour. This duo are a perfect festival band, getting the crowd bopping and tapping along in the sunshine.HSS2016 9

Over on the “BBC Introducing” stage saw Years Young getting into full swing. Drawing influences from Biffy clyro and Don Bronco, it’s no surprise that they had drawn such a crowd with their catchy melodies and polished performance. With quite a few songs already being crowd sing alongs, it’s no surprise that this band has been noted as one to watch. For fans of Mallory Knox, Lower than Atlantis and Paramore.HSS2016 10

As the evening sets in the Main Stage is warming up for the headliners with a line up of powerful homegrown bands. First up to take us into the night is Fire (The unstoppable force) who certainly made sure they won’t be forgotten. With a self described sound of “dark soul garage that will break your mind and melt your soul’ this four piece stormed around the stage whipping the crowd up into a frenzy. Looking like the northern version of The Hives, they belted out firm fan favourites of “Whiplash Crocodile”, with fans sticking out the rain to dance along to the anthem that is “Psycho Killer”.HSS2016 5HSS2016 4

The Black delta Movement was a contrast in style to follow up the previous act. With a strong psychedelic rock sound, this set was a much calmer one alongside the night time atmosphere. Having just released their new EP Seven Circles and having supported the likes of The Jesus & Mary Chain and The Stranglers, this band can only go from strength to strength. For fans of the Black Keys.HSS2016 6 As everyone’s now packed tightly around the Main stage in the heart of the marina, it’s time for the headliners to take to the stage. There has been much anticipation for this band who have quickly become a household name within in the Hull music scene. Counting Coins are known for their energetic and crazy live shows, and they didn’t disappoint. Bursting onto stage with their loud and catchy ska punk quickly getting the crowd skanking and bouncing. Harry Burnby has a natural charm and stage presence, it doesn’t take him long to have the crowd eating out the palm of his hand jumping on every command. It seems everyone young and old have got their dancing shoes on for these guys tonight, and who can blame them with the infectious anthems of “Dont Look Down” and What Gives You The Right”. With an album now under their belt, you won’t regret checking these guys out at a show. For fans of The King Blues.
HSS2016 2HSS2016 3 HSS2016 11

Street Sesh has reinforced once again why it’s one of the best festivals to take place in Hull. With not just the great showcase of musical talent, but the overall street- party vibe atmosphere. There’s a little bit of everything to suit everyone. This year’s lineup will be a tough act to follow, but no doubt Humber Street Sesh will be back next year even bigger and better as it’s crowned City of Culture.1HSS2016 13

REVIEW: GREEN DAY’S AMERICAN IDIOT (UK) THE MUSICAL – ARTS THEATRE, LONDON

IMG_2653[1]

When myself and Scott settled into our seats to see American Idiot the musical for the second time, we quickly realise that this is going to be different from the first time. First time around was in 2012 at Hammersmith Apollo, a much bigger stage and audience, and a cast of American actors.

This time however, it was at the more intimate Arts Theatre in London’s West End, and with a British cast.

When we see the cast for the first time, it’s as if someone has typed the word ‘Punk’ into Google and created them on ‘The Sims’ in the way that they are all dressed. Red, Black, Converses, New Rock Boots, Mohawks, Eye-Liner.

The show features tracks from Green Day’s American Idiot Album, some B Side Tracks and some tracks from 21st Century Breakdown. But when you watch the show, it all makes so much sense.

We’re greeted at first with TV screens showing the unfortunate tragic events of 9/11 and George W Bush talking in its aftermath. Which is the start of the story. It leads nicely into American Idiot, we hear for the first time from Johnny – Jesus of Suburbia (Played by Aaron Sidwell) in his American accent, which seems slightly odd, but he certainly grows into it as the play goes on. The next song is the 5 in 1 Jesus of Suburbia – Just before the fifth part of the song Tales from Another Broken Home, we find out it’s four days on from 9/11 – this leads us to into Holiday and in an ingenious piece of staging they use guitar cases as the lights and wheel fenders on the bus!

This is now the part where the story gathers momentum and Johnny and Tunny (Alexis Gerred) move out of their old town and away from their good friend Will (Steve Rushton) it’s then that we get to witness the first Solo song of the evening, when Johnny takes centre stage armed with just his acoustic guitar and blasts out an actually quite amazing version of Boulevard of Broken Dreams. By this point in the show you realise just how many hits there were on this album, and we’re only a few songs in. There is already more of an intimate feel about this show, and makes you feel genuinely closer. You quickly realise that unlike the American’s version of this there are a lot less fake and forced vocals, and these are more real and sincere. Every song’s changeover is seamlessly bleeding into one another so perfectly.

The next song is actually one of the ‘B- Sides’ from the American Idiot Promo CD single – and the first diversion away from the first performance we saw of this. Following Favorite Son – a load of red, white and blue confetti falls from the ceiling onto us in the crowd, something else which differed from the first time around. It leads nicely on to January 18th and into Are We The Waiting – this is where we see Tunny and a group of others going through medicals for the US Army, which Tunny ultimately joins. We see Will is still at home, sitting on his couch and it’s like he’s contemplating life and what’s going on, clearly he’s missing his best friends not being around.

Immediately following this, we are introduced for the very first time to the title character of the Album’s Sixth Song – St. Jimmy (Lucas Rush) who is Johnny’s drug dealer, and eventually a thorn in the side of everyone! We get a more in depth view of the character, although few words are spoken, he seems as though he would be the manipulative type who would get into your head.

The story moves forward now to April 1st. Johnny and St. Jimmy are popping pills together amongst other things. We hear him penning a letter to his mother at the time. We are then introduced for the first time to Whatshername (Amelia Lily). Tully plays us through Give Me Novacaine, while Will, still on drugs, is accompanying him with singing. As Whatshername and Johnny are having sex, there is a war still going on which we see Tully right at the heart of.

We are now on to 5th May, Will and Johnny are texting one another about what is going on. This leads into Last Of The American Girls/She’s A Rebel, that is followed up with St. Jimmy trying to seduce Whatshername, during Last Night On Earth.

By this time Will’s girlfriend, Heather (Natasha J Barnes) has given birth and we hear some great vocal work from the cast during Too Much Too Soon, it then leads in to Heather leaving him, due to his drug addiction and still being lazy, gaming in front of his TV.

The scene then cuts to the warzone again and the scene of Tunny losing his leg in battle. He is in a hospital bed, and a video playing on screen of him. He is actually hallucinating, and doesn’t realise Before The Lobotomy is the accompanying song for this scene, and a very good fit.

Cast of American Idiot, The Arts Theatre

Tunny falls for his nurse The Extraordinary Girl (Raquel Jones) and the song by the same name is being performed, at the end of this we go back to the hospital where we find out Tunny was only dreaming.

After this, we go back to Johnny who is fixing himself some drugs, unaware that Whatshername is still sleeping.

While this scene is taking place, the entire theatre is in somewhat of an eerie silence, and when he is starting to shoot up when he’s on the toilet and then staggering around. It is quite honestly one of the best pieces of acting I’ve seen!

It’s only after he’s shot up the drugs that he realises Whatshername is still sleeping. He then sits and plays When It’s Time, he actually says ‘I wrote this for you’

Once this is finished is when we come back to St Jimmy who is the devil on the shoulder of Johnny, and he sings Know Your Enemy, and it seems like he is driving Johnny to kill himself to a point where Johnny has the gun in his mouth. This prompts a rendition of 21 Guns. Which, lyrically brilliantly fits the story.

Cast of American Idiot, The Arts Theatre

By this stage, Tunny is wheeled out by Extraordinary Girl in his wheelchair, Will and Heather are at Will’s place. It’s a brilliant piece of staging, and three stories being told simultaneously. Will gives us a brief rendition of Nobody Likes You.

July 18thJohnny is learning his lesson, and has a letter written for Whatshername to read… This is the cue for us to hear the amazing vocal from Whatshername, backed up by the other females in the cast. After this, Johnny finds himself all alone and sitting at the front of the stage.

September 10th – Almost a year to the day of the 9/11 attacks… Johnny, Will and Tunny give us a really heartfelt version of Wake Me Up When September Ends.

At this point, if you hadn’t known the track listing from the album, or seen the show before, you could have guessed that the show was nearing completion. But there were still a couple of bits to go before the grand finale (more on that in a bit!)

We have St. Jimmy back on stage now for the opening of Homecoming (another 5 songs in 1 masterpiece), the first song (The Death of St. Jimmy) is where Jimmy eventually kills himself, and we see Johnny working and finally sorting his life out during the second song (East 12th Street), then the third is Will going back to Nobody Likes You, where he is just sitting in his flat hooked on coffee and drugs and just watching TV, it then leads into Rock N Roll Girlfriend, where Heather is attending a premiere with a famous Film star.

December 7thWill, Johnny and Tunny are FINALLY re-united after a year! And during this we’re treated to the rendition of We’re Coming Home Again and we get to see some of the characters all meet for the first time.

Then the last song of the show (Whatshername) is the part where Johnny realises that he lost the love of his life and he has to accept he can live with the struggle of Rage and Love! (Hence… I’m the son of Rage and Love) and the possibility of one day rekindling his romance with his love.

The story ends there…. BUT NOT THE SHOW!

To top off an amazing show, the ending is just fitting! Every single member of the cast filters out on the stage with acoustic guitars in hand to perform Green Day’s show closer Good Riddance and as they end with the final line of the song ‘I hope you had the time of your life’ – Yes We Did!

It was a great show, and in my honest opinion… I preferred this version to the original American Version, which we saw for the first time. Credit to Director, Racky Plews for a brilliant interpretation of this. A brilliantly told story by an awesome case with some incredible vocal performances!
