Rogora Khart
The band musika, Rogora Khart, hail from the heady metropolis that is Newportograd, way over the border, where they have nurtured their own form of explosive Black Sea punk.

Inspired by Eastern European music, art-deco cabaret, burlesque, gypsy and punk, Rogora Khart have but one desire which is to entertain and have you whirling in abandon, coaxed on by the enthralling dancing of the hypnotic Siluria.

Theirs is a joyous dance music – a punky folk 'n' roll with songs sung in Georgian, German, English, Welsh and Russian.  They demand that you forget your worries and celebrate life. They sing of the eternal search for the magical Shupka and humankind’s quest for uplifting art. These humble musicians know of the simple joy of eating chips after drinking beer when you don’t have much money

Nearly lost for words, after experiencing their frenzied and slightly disturbing live show, one traveller likened them to “the Pogues fronted by Dracula – UKIP’s worst nightmare”. This of course makes them our newest best friends.

When Richard Met Debbie

Everybody knows the story of my meeting with Patti Smith but she’s not the only one of the artists of the New York underground scene of the late 1970s who I’ve met. Yes, of the CBGB centred scene-makers, I’ve also talked to John Cale and Richard Hell, exchanged grunts with Tom Verlaine and hung with Lenny Kaye. OK I confess to having engineered these encounters, mainly by blagging my way backstage, but my coming face-to-face with the Queen of NYC cool, Debbie Harry, that was totally unexpected.
