    Fight The Fear

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 01/09/2019

    » In his 1818 poem When I Have Fears, English Romantic poet John Keats talks about death anxiety, touching upon all of the things he wouldn't be able to achieve and/or experience before his demise. This universal fear has continued to resonate today, especially in the age where fear of missing out is constantly triggered by social media and unrelenting hyperconnectivity. The poem, too, has struck a chord with rising Dublin five-piece The Murder Capital and gone on to inspire their eponymous debut studio album rooted firmly in art-rock and post-punk traditions.

In the Thai documentary Din Rai Dan (Soil Without Land), a Tai Yai man in Shan state talks about his life as a waiter in Bangkok and as a soldier in his ethnic army. In the Vietnamese film The Future Cries Beneath Our Soil, a group of men in a rural village bear the indelible wounds of the Vietnam War, still stinging after 40 years.

    Mature Musicality

    Life, Published on 25/09/2019

    » Somtow Sucharitkul and Siam Sinfonietta earlier this month gave a wonderful concert in the Czech Republic's capital, Prague, as part of their European tour. The event was significant for several reasons. It marked the premiere on the Old Continent of Voraprach Wongsathapornpat's piece Temples Of Kyoto, Trisdee Na Patalung's Restoration, and Somtow's Helena Citrónová suite. For many of the young musicians, the tour occasioned their first performance in Europe and "their first time encountering the particular warmth of the Czechs and the intensity of their love for music". The excited audience at Prague's Academy of Performing Arts (HAMU) bestowed a long standing ovation on Somtow and Sinfonietta for their mature musicality.

    Jimmy Carr makes triumphant return

    Life, Published on 03/04/2019

    » Jimmy Carr joins a growing list of comedians brought to the City of Angels by the Comedy Club Bangkok team Chris Wegoda and Drew McCreadie. The pair has seen Bangkok comedy grow from pub back rooms to plush hotels, and while perfect for TED talks, are hotel conference rooms a touch too clinical for a Jimmy Carr gig? Thankfully not. The Westin Grande ballroom on Sukhumvit Road is warmly lit, well-staffed, and perfectly adequate to accommodate Jimmy Carr-sized crowds.
