Rumble in Brighton
0

wow what's that about Brighton?

AtypI going to have a Rumble in Brighton 2007? What will be the theme?

Rockers and Mods ?

Official song 'You're not from Brighton'

What is so typographic about Brighton? it's not what comes to mind.

Maybe we could sit out on the Steyne Gardens all night under 'protective police custody' and make letterforms with our confiscated bootlaces... just like in the good old days.

(Er, I hate to mention it, but what is typographic about Brighton is it was the birthplace of A.E.R. Gill.) That still doesn't mean I know why AtypI choose it, other than it's presumably cheap off-season.

'Punch & Judy' might make a good theme. Or 'Brighton Rock'.

My guess is, the location has been chosen according to our current president's wishes, who happens to be a former mod. Maybe he wants to remember the good ol' days and bring justice back in this land :)

The only good thing about Brighton is that it's as close as possible to France.

Hrant,

Why the downer on Brighton? It's a great city.

You know, I've never been. I suspect it's a nice place to visit for a couple of days*. But can it really be on a typographic "top" list? And what sort of top list can a British beach city be on in September?

* I used to have this mantra that a traveler should not stay in the
same city for more than 24 hours. Didn't hold up very well though. :-/

I guess a sufficiently large one could reach.
Sir Ralph Payne-Gallway did once fire a mere crossbow from Wales to Ireland.

Great British cuisine! Shark(?) and chips. I took this photo in Brighton a couple of years ago.

The shark is probably (hopefully) a reference to the popular Rock Salmon.

Or maybe the sign painter was just better at sharks.

On second glance though there's something off about the perspective of the beast's tail that makes it look more like a whale's fluke.

Why hopefully? Reverse-discrimination is bad enough when applied to humans! :-)

(Allegedly) it has a pub for every day of the year and all within staggering distance of each other... Hrant, you'll need 'em for those sweltering Indian summers the British Isles have been having. Even in September.

Although swimming in the Channel is probably still inadvisable.

So, Vince, you mean it's totally polarised, or it's very sexy, perhaps regardless of which dirty weekend one had in mind... oo, er, blimey. Ah yes! It's home of the naughty English seaside postcard – must be some typographic mileage in that.

As for Blast you English!!! ROFL. (I now have a mental image of Hrant imitating Austin Powers villains).

Seems this sexy, tawdry version of Brighton is an ideal location for a caper, hmmm? Just breathe in that Raffish Air (or is that fried dough?). You never know who has a stiletto in his/her go-go boot.

For entirely the wrong image of Brighton watch this or indeed read the book.

See those writing credits.

And The End of the Affair (also Graham Green) is set in Brighton. Coincidence?
There's a big publishing company in Brighton (or Hove). Phaidon maybe? I only remember you could hear the waves from their office.
Serious: Brighton is grrrrrrrrrrooooooovy hrant.

Lore, I think that's Rotovision, who now have an office on the Western Road.

...at your service, dahling. Now that's hilarious! And I'm sure it'll get you a long way in Brighton... cue visions of the International Man of Typographic Mystery clicking his cuban heels and sashaying through the seafront hotels and nightclubs.

Vince, this is for you
