It is easy to see why Spiderman is amongst the favourites of all the super heroes that have come and gone since the much heralded Golden Age of the genre; funny, wisecracking, prone to teenage angst, the fine line between the big picture and the tiniest detail always shown as brightly as possible, a young lad protecting his neighbourhood rather than taking on the world. Since his first appearance in comic book and on screen, through Saturday morning cartoon and posters on the wall, any young person and any adult who remembers the feeling, will always be entranced by Peter Parker and Spiderman.

The world hangs in a deadly balance, the world’s mightiest heroes are being reined in by their own kind and their friends and divisions and sides are being forged and broken; the world is used to such fun and games, countries routinely flip in their pursuit of self interest and government greed but to do this to those charged with protecting the planet, it all gets very murky indeed.

American cinema may have invented the concept of the “Road Movie”, just as they did with the beat poetry that used the idea as metaphor to describe life but surely in the hands of one film, British cinema has shown exactly what can be done with the genre. The wide open spaces that run the width of the United States is can be argued is a poor substitute to the tediousness that is inflicted upon drivers in the U.K., the road in America takes you to the place you want to be, the road in Britain takes you where you need to be. For that prospect alone makes Locke one of the finest films dealing with solitude and everyday realism that you are likely to come across.

The Duckworth Lewis Method, Gig Review. Rough Trade Records, Whitechapel, London.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

There are just some things you cannot pass up the opportunity of witnessing in life.  The chance, if you should support England’s cricket team, to see the Australians flounder in two…hopefully three home test Ashes series on the trot in England is surely one of those, perhaps even seeing Lancashire’s Jimmy Anderson overtake Sir Ian Botham’s huge and long standing wicket haul is another. However, when it comes to music, being able to see The Duckworth Lewis Method kick start a tour of their latest cricket themed album, Sticky Wickets, in the sweet confines of Rough Trade Records in Whitechapel as part of a launch for the third edition of The Night Watchman, is just as sweet and just as palpable…records, new music, cricket, Neil Hannon and Thomas Walsh, there surely isn’t much else for the cricketing music fan to excited about.
