Cue the Cooper’s Hill Cheese Roll, a national institution for the reckless British cheese-lover. This bazaar tradition takes place on the last weekend of May and attracts over 4,000 spectators, so many in fact that last year’s event was cancelled for fear of crowd health and safety. Story by Nic McEwan.
As we settle into the new decade no doubt thousands of us will be making those hard-to-keep promises with the hope of self-improvement. New Year’s Resolutions: as necessary to make as they are fun to break. If yours involves cutting out the carbs and signing up to the gym, here’s a better idea. Why not throw your tempting snack down a very steep hill and chase after it? That’s what they’ve been doing in Gloucestershire for centuries!

The Frogfisher’s choice of the top 9 albums 2010 in contemporary music. Edited by Marc Dienewald, Hamburg.
Nu Rave is no dead. The Klaxons don’t care, they’re more than that. Spacy, heavy, abstract, psychedelic, this is what they sound like in 2010. Even more songs and styles – compared to their furious debut album and still unmistakable with the one-of-a-kind Klaxons sound. Mind the great deep dirty Rickenbacker Bass, which is set by the Klaxons almost like a lead guitar. A few Frogfishers saw them live in Hamburg and it was a blast! See more of the Klaxons on their Myspace-Page. Make sure you get 4 new tracks for free download on the Klaxon’s Christmassite. We love the songs! Listen and buy “Surfing the Void” on iTunes. Check out “Echoes “, “The Same Space”, “Twin Flames” and “Future Memories”. And yes, extrapoints for the cool cover artwork! read complete article…
