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.

Heathcote Williams

Campaigning poet, Heathcote Williams, died on 1st of July and he and his continual flow of words and other work will be missed by many, including me.  Age didn’t mellow him and, given the turbulent times we are currently living in, there is more need than ever for dissenters who aren’t afraid to call-out the power-hungry and the corrupt for their actions, the actions that trample over others and are tearing the natural world apart.
