Women in Power review – a strange but majestic musical comedy

Seven female writers came together to reimagine Artisophanes’ ‘The Assemblywomen’, a radical comedy following a group of Athenian women as they stage a hostile take-over of the city. The end result is a spunky and bombastic show that just lacks a little consistency when it comes to it’s structure and tone. It’s interesting to have such a large cast of writers attached to one project. … Continue reading Women in Power review – a strange but majestic musical comedy

Why you should watch: Small Crimes

Small Crimes isn’t Westeros, but Jamie Lannister still decided to turn up. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau plays Joe Denton, a corrupt cop recently out of prison for attempted murder. Alcoholic narcissist Denton was put away after carving up the local District Attorney more than a Christmas turkey, but we’re informed early on that he wants to make amends and seeks to redeem his actions.

Review: MGMT – Little Dark Age

After nearly a 5-year absence, American psychedelic rock band MGMT have returned with a brand-new album, ‘Little Dark Age’. If, like me, you think back to the halcyon days of the pre-2010s world then you’ll be familiar with MGMT’s ‘Oracular Spectacular’, especially the tracks ‘Time to Pretend’ and ‘Kids’. They were classics and stand up to almost any song of that period without question. Continue reading “Review: MGMT – Little Dark Age”

Review: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Razor sharp humour juxtaposed against stark and sobering emotional pain, Three Billboards is a must see. Those of you familiar with the works of writer and director Martin McDonagh will know what to expect from this film; twisted, wicked humour, set against a backdrop of sheer, unimaginable emotional anguish. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri centres around protagonist Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand), the mother of a … Continue reading Review: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Introducing Johnny Manna, music for those who need it.

I first met Johnny Manna at a pizza place just outside of Hopewell Junction in upstate New York, with little knowledge or inclination of his musical ability and composure. Even as the ensuing day and night passed, I had no idea I was sat in the presence of genuine, exciting talent. Fast forward to a few weeks after returning back to England, and whilst perusing … Continue reading Introducing Johnny Manna, music for those who need it.

A Christmas COSMO

“And it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well” – eating loads of food and complaining about the cold weather normally works out quite well for me. Luckily enough, COSMO is inside, warm and has a superb menu. After being invited to sample COSMO’s new Christmas themed selection of food, I thought it fitting I discuss the restaurant in the … Continue reading A Christmas COSMO
