The Fabulous Red Diesel – fuel for life!

The Fabulous Red Diesel have been adding colour to Hastings and St Leonards for about ten years now. Fuelled by the dynamo combination of Kat and Will Lee-Ryan, they have been instrumental in staging the Bohemia Village Fayre and have performed at St Leonards Festival – as well as headlining at HOT’s launch party three years ago. Recently, the band have been putting their focus into recording, whilst pondering universal questions. “We Know it’s 43” is the result – HOT’s Erica Smith donned her headphones for a listen.

There are many ways in which you might experience an art exhibition.  You may feel overwhelmed by sheer technical brilliance, moved by a depth of vision on the part of the artist, or challenged by work which is beyond your comfort zone.  All can be rewarding experiences.  However, every now and then you get to visit a show where you WANT all the pieces on display.  This is one of them.  HOT reporter Cathy Simpson comments on the current exhibition at the Kave Gallery.

History as farce – or tragic-comedy

Guest reviewer Stuart Christie attended the opening night of Dario Fo’s Accidental Death of An Anarchist at the Stables Theatre.

Pinelli – victim of right-wing terrorism

Giuseppe Pinelli, the anarchist railway worker on the circumstances of whose death Dario Fo’s play is based, was far from being a passive victim of events as might be inferred from some of the dialogue, and that may have contributed to his demise, writes Stuart Christie. A youthful anarchist partisan during the war and active in the post-war Italian anarchist and labour union (anarcho-syndicalist) movement, Pinelli was secretary of the Milan Anarchist Black Cross (ABC), set up the previous year.
