Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

Cast: Jake Abraham, Lindzi Germain, Paislie Reid, Catherine Rice, Andrew Schofield, James Spofforth, Lenny Wood.

The place, the city, may have changed but the character, the soul of Liverpool is still so deeply engrained that that the River Mersey cannot be seen as anything other than an artery that feeds lifeblood and is the connection between the spirit and the heart of a community raised on memories, brought up on hard times, an identity that is unlike anything else in the country and one in which the soul is above all.

There may be a house in New Orleans in which many a poor lad has lost his way, but they never quite lose their way, or regain the right path, as a Liverpool lad fighting the evil intentions of a maniac hell bent on destroying the city, not even a hero of a popular 60s song could match the heroics of the Scouse of the Rising Sun.

A Fistful Of Collars, Theatre Review. Royal Court Theatre, Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 8.5/10

Cast: Jake Abraham, Eithne Browne, Suzanne Collins, Lindzi Germain, Angela Simms, Alan Stocks, Lenny Wood.

The world is a harsh place at times, not everybody plays by the same rules and those who are fair, honest and upright in their morals are the ones forever being treated like dirt, that they have the very will to continue offering the service they do is a measure of their honour, that they refuse to be stitched up by those kicking against them a sign of their trustworthy and good nature.

Some institutions are so engrained into the fabric of society that to be without them is to argue that society is going backwards. The N.H.S., arguably the greatest and proudest contribution to British life in the last 100 years, is always under threat, always on the verge of being lost by those who believe that the health of the nation should be one that is allowed to make profit over care, yet, for now, still offers the best a patient can get and that always boils down to the people inside the hospitals, the doctors, the cleaners, the morticians, the nurses…those that wander in with a clip board one day and decide to stay.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Philip Olivier, Lindzi Germain, Jake Abraham, George Wilson, Nick Birkinshaw, Bernie Foley, James McMartin, Les Doherty, Kivan Dene.

It is an institution almost unlike anything else in the world, often copied, sometimes mocked but never considered sincere or as authentic as the original; the great British public house remains, despite some knocks over the years, still the fabric of everyday life and it is one that should be lauded even as the so called sophistication of palates and life changes.

Boris and Daisy, a Russian submarine crew member and a student from Liverpool, having found love in a cold climate and an odd pair of talking bears with a passion for ballet in Scouse of The Antarctic continue their romance in the hot desert of Egypt and in amongst the camels, the fezs and flies and in Fred Lawless’ latest comedy smash, Pharaoh Cross The Mersey, the spirit of the Liver Bird lives on in wonderful Merseyside fashion.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

The Antarctic: A place where a person from Liverpool can be at one with Penguins, Polar Bears, a sarcastic snowman with a not just a carrot on his nose but a chip on a shoulder and a cob on his mind and where a man’s underpants can signify that you are truly the master of all you survey. Life it seems can be serene and peaceful as the Scouse of The Antarctic.

Sex And The Suburbs, Theatre Review. Royal Court Theatre, Liverpool.

Cast: Claire Sweeney, Lindzi Germain, Carl Patrick.

Radio has come a long way since its early days. It has seen many advancements, dedicated music channels, digital, analogue being banished to the wasteland of history but still lingering on coughing and spluttering in a superhuman effort to keep a vessel of the past open. Pop stars come and go and in some cases come back again and of course the advent of talk radio, the small bubble in which people can lose their rag at a voice a hundred miles away and confess all to an aural-voyeuristic nation. It seems nothing is off limits and when it comes to Sex and the Suburbs, everybody has a story to tell and an opinion to express.
