Shoreditch Micro Brewery

Beer lovers are raising their glasses to the arrival of the first brewery in Hackney for more than 20 years.

Business partners Jules Whiteway and Ian Burgess are opening London Fields Brewery to the public for the first time this bank holiday weekend.

The micro-brewery under railway arches in Helmesley Place, off Mentmore Terrace, is believed to be the first commercial brewery operating in Hackney since the closure of the Pitfield Brewery in Pitfield Street, Hoxton, in the early 1990s.

Jules, 39, who left behind a gardening business in Gloucester to start the new venture, said: “It is good to take up the mantle and continue the tradition of brewing in east London, moving it on to the next generation.”

Ian, 34, already runs Climpson & Sons coffee shop in Broadway Market.

The pair have been taking training courses and will now be supplying homes and a handful of pubs nearby with their new brews.

Same Mistakes

Same Mistakes - The Cooper Temple Clause

Everything about this record is true, sublime and dictatorially precise.

With everything from the record Kick Up the Fire and Let the Flames Break, all carry so much meaning, force, devotion and raw energy.

To open with such a subtle starting rousing crescendo introduction to what is, has been, and always will be - the most defining record of my life.

Libertines, Strokes, Gun's N Roses all feature but TCTC really took me, held me and still do - at gunpoint.

And now more than ever - you can't keep making the same mistakes. Do I dare open the show with it this week? It's included for sure, perhaps with this eulogy.

And so it has to change
The notebook's now in pieces
Words we'll never sing
I know you'll say i've simply jumped the gun
And that they've won
But you can't keep making the same mistakes
You see i've had this thought
It took its time in coming
But now won't be denied
I'd always gone about these things all wrong
But not this song
Coz you can't keep making the same mistakes
No you can't keep making the same mistakes
Can't jump ship just yet
There's no one at the wheel
Someone has to steer
Get a hold of yourself
Keep your head there's no time to waste
You'll see it soon enough
But all is not forgotten
And now's no time for tears
Coz though that boy has died this one still lives
And now there's life
And a chance to make up for all those mistakes
But please don't get me wrong
Coz everything was honest
True and from the heart
There's still the same old hang ups so don't fret
Its not safe yet
And who knows there's always time to screw up again
But maybe we'll be cool
Coz you were made an offer
You could not refuse
You made me come alive and see my face
See my grace
And we grow or do we just haul it around?

With this morning's sport - The Preshaah

The top two from last season kick off their Premier League campaigns later.

Manchester United start at West Brom, while Chelsea begin at Stoke.

Two of the main title contenders recorded disappointing draws on the opening day.

Liverpool let a lead slip in finishing 1-1 with Sunderland, while Arsenal were reduced to ten men in their goalless draw at Newcastle.

QPR lost 4-0 at home to Bolton, while fellow newcomers Norwich finished 1-1 against Wigan.


Blackpool play their first competitive home game since their relegation from the Premier League today.

They host Peterborough in the Championship.

Today's other match sees Cardiff host Bristol City.

Three teams maintained their 100-percent starts to the second-tier campaign.

Southampton won 1-0 at Barnsley, while Brighton got past Portsmouth 1-0, and Derby triumphed 1-0 at Watford.

Ipswich slipped up, though, going down 1-0 at home to Hull, while Leicester were beaten 2-0 by Reading.

Leeds are still without a point after losing 1-0 to Middlesbrough, though West Ham got off the mark with a 1-0 victory over Doncaster.

Birmingham beat Coventry 1-0 in their derby, while Millwall saw off Steve McClaren's Nottingham Forest 2-0, and Crystal Palace beat Burnley 2-0.


Celtic remain the only team in the SPL with a 100-percent record.

They beat Dundee United 5-1, but they're not top of the table because of playing a game less than most of their rivals.

Motherwell are at the summit after their late 1-0 victory at St Mirren.

Rangers aren't too far behind after their 2-0 triumph at Inverness, while Hearts beat Aberdeen 3-0, and Dunfermline got past St Johnstone 1-0.

Today's game sees Kilmarnock host Hibernian.


England's cricketers can reflect on the fact that they're the best Test team in the world.

Their crushing victory over India at Edgbaston means they'll be top of the list when the rankings are next published.

Andrew Strauss' side took a 3-0 lead in the series, beating the tourists by an innings and 242 runs.


Wales should know today whether Gavin Henson will be fit enough to feature in the rugby union World Cup.

He suffered a suspected broken arm in their 19-9 warm-up victory over England.

The results of a scan should be known later.

In last night's action, Ireland were beaten 19-12 at the hands of France.


Only a point separates the top two going into today's rugby league Super League games.

Leaders Wigan host Salford, while second-placed Warrington have Wakefield.

It's Bradford against Hull KR in the other contest.


Spaniard Dani Pedrosa is on pole position for the first time this season at the Czech MotoGP later.

The Honda rider shares the front row with Yamaha's defending world champion Jorge (pron: HOR-GAY) Lorenzo.

Pedrosa's team-mate and current championship leader Casey Stoner will be third on the grid.

Arsenal / Wenger

(Starts 1730)

Arsenal will be looking for revenge as they begin their Premier League campaign away at Newcastle.

The Gunners let a 4-0 lead slip in the same fixture last season.

They'll be missing both Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.

Manager Arsene Wenger is optimistic for his side's title ambitions.

(audio later)

Cesc Fabregas

Farewell you've been amazing and a joy to watch.

The delights you graced us with were just awesome on so many occasions. Breaking your leg for Arsenal to clinch what was perhaps the Best comeback at The grove 2-2 against Barcelona.

You are so unique in your style of play and reflecting in this moment now, you've made our last 8 seasons delightful dynamic in many ways.

All the best, you'll always be a Gooner and I will continue to follow your gracious soccer with Espania and a bit of your dirty new club.

He's only 17 - He's Better than Roy Keane - Fabregas Wooo o o Fabregas Wooo o o.

Or does we jump the gun bang?

Time: 15:26
Type: SPORT-


There are conflicting claims surrounding the future of Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.

Barcelona say they hope to announce the signing of the midfielder within the next few hours.

But the Gunners say a deal has yet to be agreed.

The Spaniard has long been linked with the Catalans.

Joy of Joy's - Joy Formidable new tunes

Whirring blew into my life around 3 years ago? Perhaps sooner, it was re-released a few times before the EP 'Balloon Called Moaning' found my ipod pocket around this time last year.

8 tracks of screeeeeching screeeaming solid sounds. Tracked the release of their debut record - The Big Roar and rushed out on the day of release to pick it up.

Iterviewed Ritzy over the phone for Shoreditch Radio and followed their trail of destruction from Lovebox to the Borderline, Glastonbury and Reading next weekend.

Was pondering just the other day - how the fuck are they still standing after a worldly tour spanning most of this year, when could we expect some newness?

And as if by Magic the New Musical Express did fortune fill my thoughts.

Nighty Night:

From NME

The Joy Formidable have said they have over 15 songs written for their second album.

The Welsh trio, who released their debut full length LP 'The Big Roar' in January, have said they hope to have the album out by next year after they complete their touring commitments.

Speaking to NME backstage at Osheaga festival in Montreal, singer Ritzy Bryan said that the writing process was constantly ongoing and that they had lots to work with. She said:

We started the second album ages ago. We write all the time, even when we're on the road, because we record ourselves, we build collections of songs quite quickly. We have about 15 or 20 already, but lots of other bits too, there'll be lots to choose from when we eventually sit down and sort it out.

Asked whether they would look to avoid the lengthy build up to 'The Big Roar' and aim for a quick release, she replied:

I think we'd like next year, it'll definitely be ready, we've probably written the second, third and fourth record with the amount of stuff that we've got, so I'd say next year is definitely realistic.

The band play their biggest UK tour to date later this year, which is likely to bring the promotion of 'The Big Roar' to an end. They band joked that they plan to "shoot each other out of canons" as part of their live show in the autumn, but have promised to put on more of a show in their live performance.

Oh Arsenal We Love You

Its started already, just watching the draw was nervous. I’ve said all summer I’ve not missed soccer – our show West London Derby has been going on throughout the close season and we’ve found things to talk about to keep it all alive.

The Women’s World Cup was a nice summer slice of soccer and the #ff Funny Friendlies were very entertaining over the last few weeks. Watching us against the Red Bulls last weekend was pretty much picking up where we left off – creative sharp and attacking, up front still lacking and conceding sloppy goals.

You cant read to much into these #ff Funny Friendlies though, the dissent on Twitter was a bit over the top but expected from our frowning fans.

I forgot this anxious excited feeling though, every match in the second half of last season was ridiculous, clawing back against West Brom, 98mins of Liverpool and Stuffing Utd with half a team! At half time against Barcelona I looked up from the clock end to an Anfield 89 banner and sent vibes to the team to believe in the same – a rousing second half performance and some Super Nick involvement was just incredible – beating them at their own game and sending the Glacticons into the gutter with their Piella smeared everywhere!

The hooligan escapes from me every time, the shouting and yelling and playful passion clouds my vision, which is why I find writing about sport so difficult. I love Arsenal, I’m a fan of football but the Love is Arsenal. We play the game in the most attractive way and thus are the ambassadors of the sport. Other than the Emirates Cup which I’ve heard is going to be a qualification tournament next year? The lack of silverware is disappointing but to watch such wonders week in week out is Golden Goal.

Part of the nerves behind the draw was that I wanted a home tie first – my mum is away and thus I get to go, the decision now is who to take? August Arsenal Champions League – what a treat!

Newcastle first day of the season should be exciting, they deserve a good pasting after what they did to us last season and their excited twitter twat should hopefully go someway to disrupt their pre-season plans.

@ least 4 goals – fuck it 5! We played them at Highbury in 2003 – it was on a Friday night? We won 3-2 and the game was symbolic for my life going in a particular direction. I went on to play a killer DJ set that night whacking out no less than 5 Muse tunes!

Oh Arsenal We Love You.

into pleasure started

Going round round round this sensation I’ve found, in my soul.

August 3 is where I’ve found me,
for most of the day at least till I sleep.

Off to Sky for a repeat of what’s my biggest high
And as we type this the song comes on which is just so fly.

Sleigh Bells – Kids, the rift, the rhyme is Killer everytime.

They still ain’t touring
Not touring yet
But you can bet when tix appear
I’ll be front row with Creds!

Filed Day this weekend,
Lovebox the one before last?
Till about 6ish
It was a super Huge Blast!

1883 Mag sent in the post,
Their art their fashion,
Inspired to the most!

Uppers and downers
Accompany my stroll
Winding round this big city
With Isabella my i phone.

If you’d have asked me last week
Or the week before that?
I’d say yeah on the upper
And sometimes too - wack.

As the hunter
Becomes the hunted
A follow from a bright star
A new accomplice?

As it all breaks down with the roll reversal
I’m using my hats
She’s universal?

Dan Formless ever my steed
Late night PM he’s the real gone kid.

As we skip through Shoreditch
Sometimes further away
He’s firing the spark plugs
And smiles away.

August three
That’s right now me
Till at least midnight
I’ll ponder after she.

Or perhaps the other
Or the other one from then
Parties in limo’s
Stretched leotards of Hens.

Tuesday is busy, Wednesday too
And Thursday is chocka
As I skip in my Brogue Shoes.

Under this sunlight
I feeling pretty alright
So thought I’d scribe this
As its feeling pretty right.

Hunting hunter
In Soho I ponder
With inept rhymes
Of moments of squandered.

Where now to go
With #ff we’ll know
How maybe,
To interact with the new she?

The sun doesn’t set, it just slips away
And with each delightful rise – a new fun time day.

Perspiration across a radio station,
With a radio show with limited flow.
So I’ll try again on another & another again
2 hours flying solo – was fun for my brain.

Check out the line up as we produce another few
Stars in the making – itching to sound out to you.

Mid year Christmas cheer as we bask in 30, its hot oh Yeeah’

Anna Calvi, Warpaint too – now its proper dry
Shoreditch Whites are my shoes.

Double duo with the Beanie Bands
Liccle ring mark on my suntanned hands.

Finished this, this is finished
The night time begins and we all diminished
Dilapidated, pumped heart rated
Firing through the night – into pleasure started.
