  • The background to the 'Gales' homecoming gig was disaster – deportation and unseemly inebriation rendered their prestigious gig at London's 100 Club a disaster – although the venue manager thought it was fantastic and invited them to play any time, despite some punters demanding their money back! Then on Monday they played a live session for Marc Riley on 6 Music and a decent gig in Mankychester.

    But Wolverhampton's what it's all about. On the bill were Violet Violet and Ted Chippington. The Violets of themselves disprove the existence of any kind of deity. It's simple really. They're hugely talented and aesthetically pleasing. A just deity would make talented people ugly, or ugly people talented out of a sense of fairness. A cruel deity would make talented people ugly, or ugly people talented, to punish them for hubris. Ergo, there's no god. They're all-round ace, and I'm neither. Next philosophical problem?

  • Based on author Eve Ensler’s ‘Vagina Interviews’ conducted with women from all around the world, this hilariously witty and moving collection of tales give voice to a chorus of lusty, outrageous, poignant, brave and thoroughly human stories.

    A staggering number of the world’s most famous & talented women, from Kate Winslet and Whoopi Goldberg to Sophie Dahl and Jerry Hall have chosen to take part in the show in New York, Los Angeles and London.

    Eve opened her new play, The Good Body, on Broadway after hit runs in San Francisco and Seattle. She toured America with it beginning in the autumn of 2005. Eve is the OBIE Award-winning author of The Vagina Monologues and the founder and artistic director of V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls.
