His distinctive fretlessbass sound and melodic playing style were a trademark of the band's sound.

When he was three, his Greek-Cypriot parents moved with him to London, where he was raised. Career[edit]Japan[edit]Japanin Toronto, 24 November 1979The band Japan, whose other members included David Sylvian, keyboardist Richard Barbieriand Sylvian's brother Steve Jansenas drummer, began as a group of friends, who all studied at Catford Boys' School.[citation needed] As youngsters they played music as a means of escape, playing Sylvian's two-chord numbers – sometimes with Karn as the front man, sometimes with Sylvian at the fore. Guitarist Rob Deanjoined the band later.[citation needed] They christened themselves Japan in 1974, signed a recording contract with German disco label Hansa, with whom they recorded three studio albums and became an alternative glam rockoutfit in the mould of David Bowie, T.Rex, and The New York Dolls.[citation needed] They switched to Virgin Records to record their subsequent albums Gentlemen Take Polaroidsand Tin Drum.[citation needed] As the band started to achieve commercial success with the release of Tin Drum, and "Ghosts", which reached the top five in 1982, tensions and personality conflicts between band members rose; Tin Drum was to be the band's final studio album. Long-simmering differences among the bandmembers came to a head when Karn's girlfriend, photographer Yuka Fujii, moved in with Sylvian and the individual members forged ahead with their own projects.[1]Karn said in an interview that as tensions with their record company had abated following Japan's commercial success, band members began focusing on personal differences rather than on the common enemy.[2] Session work and solo projects[edit]Karn played bass guitar and saxophone on Gary Numan's 1981 top ten hit "She's Got Claws" and tracks on the song's parent album, Dance.[citation needed] In November 1982, Karn released his first solo album, Titles, just as Japan had announced their split. In 1982 Karn wrote some material with Michael Finbarr Murphy guitarist and writer for Heatwave, Alan Murphy of Level 42, and Diana Rossamong others.[citation needed] They did some low key gigs around London during the summer of 1982, and then went their separate ways. In 1983, he collaborated with Midge Ureon the UK top 40 single "After a Fashion", and in 1984, he formed Dalis Carwith Peter Murphy. The duo released one album, The Waking Hour, in late 1984.[3]In the 1990s he worked with artist David Torn, Andy Rinehartand a number of Japanese musicians, and formed the multinational new wave band, NiNa. Latterly, he worked as a solo artist. Karn contributed to recordings by other artists, playing bass guitar on Bill Nelson's Chimera mini-LP, bass guitar and saxophone on Gary Numan's 1981 album Dance, and also played with Kate Bushand Joan Armatrading.[4]In the 1990s he started the Medium Productions label along with Steve Jansenand Richard Barbieri, two of his fellow former Japan-members.[4]and Debi Zornes (label management and artist co-ordination). In 2006, the MK Music imprint was established, by Karn and Debi Zornes—and beginning with 2006's Three Part Species, all releases, including the autobiography, have the MK Music logo on them.[citation needed] In 2001, Karn began to work with Gota Yashiki, Vivian Hsu, Masahide Sakuma, and Masami Tsuchiyain the band The d.e.p., or doggy eels project.[5]In 2001, he worked with Paul Wongon his "Yellow Paul Wong" release. Karn left London in 2004 to live in Cyprus with his wife and son, financially enabling himself to keep working as a musician/artist. In 2009, Karn also released his autobiography, titled Japan & Self Existence, available through his website and Lulu, which details his music career, his interests in sculpture and painting, his childhood, relationships, and family.[citation needed] On 30 August 2010, Peter Murphy disclosed via video message (subsequently removed/hidden) on his personal Facebook profile that he would be reuniting with Karn for a week in London, perhaps in November, to begin writing and recording for a second Dalis Car album. Murphy also added that this would be the first time the two had seen each other since 1983.[6]The project was cut short, however, as Karn had recently been diagnosed with cancer.[7]After his death, five of the tracks they did record were released on 5 April 2012 as an EP entitled InGladAloneness.[8]The tracks were mixed by Steve Jansen, mastered by Pieter Snaper in Istanbul and the artwork for the EP was created by Thomas Bakwith a painting by Jarosław Kukowski. Musical style[edit]Karn was essentially a self-taught musician, stating, "I rely very much on my ears. If it sounds as if it's the right thing, then I'll keep it—even if it may not be."[9]His first musical instrument was bassoon, with which he attended and passed an LSSOaudition. After his bassoon was stolen from him, he purchased a bass guitar for £5. It was then he joined up with David Batt (Sylvian), who played acoustic guitar.[10] Karn was principally the bassist within Japan, but also played all the wind instruments, including the saxophone; on Tin Drum, he played the Chinese suona(credited as "dida") for the authentic oriental sound. Karn's use of the fretlessbass guitar, a relatively unusual instrument in modern popular music, produces a distinctive sound and playing style, which makes his playing immediately recognisable.[4] Karn played an aluminium-neck Travis Beanbass on all Japan albums up to Gentlemen Take Polaroids. In 1981 he moved to Walbasses, purchasing two Mark I instruments, one with rare African tulipwood facings, the other a cherry solidbody. Karn recorded Japan's last studio album Tin Drumwith the Wal and had continued to use these, along with a headless KleinK Bass.[citation needed] Sculpture and painting[edit]Karn was a self-taught sculptor working in mainly clay although he explored other mediums.[citation needed] He held several exhibitions. He also painted in oils and experimented with using ceramic on the canvas to create a 3D effect. He was photographed in the early 1980s by Steve Jansen.[citation needed] Several of his paintings were used as sleeve covers for his music including, "Buoy" and "The Concrete Twin". His sculpture "Mask of Confidence", combining his hands with the arms, upper torso and face of photographer Yuka Fujii, was used as the inner sleeve cover for Kajagoogoo's Islands album. Karn, influenced by Chinese edible folk sculpture dating back thousands of years, also experimented in designing and creating edible life size portraiture, some of which were showcased at his restaurant "The Penguin Cafe". Karn said, "There was a definite change in style when I stopped using self-hardening clay in the mid '80s and began sculpting with more conventional clay. Finding it much more malleable, the pieces could be worked on a larger scale and needn't be focused, as was the case previously, on small detail."[citation needed] He continued to sculpt throughout his life and eventually learned to fire his own pieces.[citation needed] Personal life[edit]Karn had two diplomas in psychotherapyfrom a West Londoncollege, entitling him to call himself "Member of the Associated Stress Consultants, Psychotherapy, and Regression & Hypno-analysis".[11] Illness and death[edit]In June 2010, Karn announced on his website that he had been diagnosed with advanced-stage cancer, though the specific type of cancer was not mentioned.[12]According to David Torn, Karn's cancer had apparently already spreadand he was undergoing chemotherapy.[13]The website announcement stated that Karn had been struggling financially for some time, and appealed for donations to help pay for his medical care and provide financial assistance for his family. In addition, several people Karn has worked with, in particular Midge Ure,[13]Porcupine Tree,[12]and Masami Tsuchiya,[5]announced concerts in support of the appeal. According to a website update dated 3 September 2010, the funds raised by the appeal enabled Karn and his family to move back to London, where Karn received treatment.[12]However, the cancer had spread beyond the possibility of treatment, and he died at his home in London on 4 January 2011.[3][14][15] Musical works[edit]Albums[edit]For albums with Japan(and Rain Tree Crow) see there.

Once a girlfriend of Mick Karn, who now lives in Cyprus, Fujii had contributed to the unease within the band by leaving Karn for Sylvian. 'Being in the middle of all that was very difficult,' says Jansen. 'The tension back stage on tour was unbelievable. Mick has quite an ego on him. In those days he was very headstrong about what he wanted to do. He started to make plans for a solo album during the recording of Tin Drum, and Dave wasn't happy about that. And the girlfriend problem set it right off between them. Mick never really got over those issues. I don't think you can.'^Anil Prasad interview – 'How did becoming so successful so young affect you?'

CyWineFest

CyWineFest


CyWineFest The biggest event in our community’s calendar, the Cypriot Wine Festival & Business Expo, is fast approaching! Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd June 2019, there’s only one place to be, the Lee Valley Athletics Centre which will once again host this spectacular two-day event. And we are delighted to announce that the headline act at this year’s extravaganza is the lovely Peggy Zina! One of the top female pop artists of the past two decades, the popular songstress will be gracing the stage at the 37th CyWineFest, performing all her greatest hits live…who can forget Ela, Sou Hrostao Akoma Ena Klama, Eime Kala, Ego Ta Spao, Vres Enan Tropo, Matono, Poli Kala Pername and so many others…she is sure to put on a fabulous show. Peggy made her recording debut in 1995 with her self-titled album. To date, she has released fourteen studio albums. In March 2010, she was ranked the 24th top-certified female artist in the nation’s phonographic era, totalling nine platinum and two gold records. Seated tickets and general entry tickets to CyWineFest can be purchased online at www.cypriotwinefestival.com Keep up to date on the happenings of this year’s event through our social media sites: Twitter @CyWineFest, Instagram @cywinefest, and Facebook @CyWineFest The 2019 dates for the Cypriot Wine Festival & Business Expo have officially been announced! Following the success of last year’s Bank Holiday bonanza, the team is extremely delighted to announce that this year’s event will take place on Saturday 1st June and Sunday 2nd June 2019! Rewind back to the Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend, CyWineFest had a new month, new dates, new times and a new location, and although the overall success of the event was never in any doubt, what manifested was beyond the team’s expectations.  This year the Cypriot Wine Festival Business Expo will take place in the month of June, which was home to the event for decades. Lee Valley Athletics Centre has been firmly established as the home of the largest Cypriot event outside of Cyprus. Having the opportunity to combine both the external and internal spaces gives a very inclusive insight into Cypriot culture and it has become one of the most pleasant experiences of CyWineFest allowing for congregation as opposed to segregation of the two spaces Given the hot climate of Cyprus, most events, parties and social gatherings occur outdoors; Whether it is dancing in the streets, carnivals, weddings, or barbeques high up in the Troodos mountains (in designated areas of course!), or on a relative’s veranda. Although the weather in London has always been temperamental it has never stopped the Cypriots here from firing up the barbeque, building pergolas or entire ‘souvla hut’ in their gardens, much the same principal applies at CyWineFest but on a grander scale regardless of torrential rains, freezing temperatures or even if there has been snowfall, very little comes between a Cypriot and their food. Of course, there is much more to Cypriot cuisine than barbeques – kleftiko, seafood dishes like calamari, and of course plenty of pastries, both sweet and savory, which can all be discovered at CyWineFest. Cypriot wines are gradually making their way to the UK an amazing feat considering that small producers have to compete with globally recognised wines imported from countries that have become associated with wine production. That is where our team steps in, CyWineFest provides a vast selection of Cypriot wine from many different wineries as well as many different varieties. Each year we strive to bring more variety and quantities of wines and this year won’t be any different. We delivered on last year’s mission – although every year we bring a wide variety of wines it was hard to get through the crowd to taste them, however by providing more wine tasting tables visitors had access to a greater range, spaced out all over the venue. This is something that we will always continue to encourage ensuring that visitors are given the opportunity to become part of the Cypriot wine revival. Spread throughout London and beyond, restaurants, bakeries, cafés, community organisations and local businesses are all part of the CyWineFest experience, not only does one have great wine and foods on the menu but our entertainment program, including Cypriot folk dancing traditions that have survived for centuries, as well as selections from our talented pool of community acts keeps everyone on their toes. On top of all this CyWineFest provides the amazing opportunity for visitors to experience a live show put on by highly acclaimed Cypriot and Greek performing artists. Our past record includes Konstantinos Argyros, Elena Paparizou, Yiannis Ploutarchos, George Dalaras, Glykeria, Sarbel, Despina Vandi, Stelios Dionysiou, Keti Garbi, Anna Vissi to name a few, this year will be no different, you can guarantee that CyWineFest will put an amazing show rivaling any concert. CyWineFest is no doubt a great day out for the family with plenty of things for adults, kids and kid-like adults, full of food, wine and music. The spirit of the event will draw you in and you’ll want to be part of the festivities year upon year, so tell your friends and families and get 2019’s dates in your diaries! Take a good look at the wines and products we recommend, explore, review, taste, with unlimited wine sampling of a wide selection of Cypriot wines on offer, you’ll be sure to find the wine that’s right for you. With just 6 months to go until the weekend extravaganza, we look forward to welcoming you all, remember to follow #CyWineFest2019 to keep up to date on the happenings of this year’s event!

Although the goddess is still considered one of the most famous gods of Olympus, today the memory of her ‘worship’ is seen as a nostalgic representation of a connection between the people of Cyprus and Greece. Cyprus is often called the island of love or the island of Venus and that is testament to the important role she played both in pagan religion but also in economic matters. Pilgrimages from all over the Eastern Mediterranean brought trade and currency and offerings much in the way that the goddesses legacy does today. In the present day, however the temples, sanctuaries and of course the birthplace of Aphrodite are still visited today and although it is more of a historical, archaeological tour of Cyprus, the themes she embodies are still relevant in today’s world and people are not ready to give up that infatuation, that love affair with the Olympian. Couple’s symbolise their love of the cliff sides with heart shaped offerings.                             The documentary explores the multifaceted and diverse beliefs Aphrodite represents and she meant many things to many cultures. Today we see a much more refined and ‘classical’ version, however her origins stem back to the fertile plains of the Middle East and her depictions couldn’t be further from what we have grown used to. The classical world shape shifted the goddess to be more excepted in their world, the ancient Greeks were obsessed with beauty and often held beauty pageants. Beauty typically went hand in hand with knowledge and wisdom; obviously these ideals are downright absurd to us today. Just imagine the likes of modern day supermodels being considered the brains of our generation, just because they’re pretty? In fact, in our modern-day culture the opposite stigma is attached to the model men and women of our time. Aphrodite remains in the hearts and minds of the men and women of today’s world, known by many names this beautiful and cunning goddess, we prefer to remember her as Aphordite Kypris the Lady of Cyprus.

Newsletter – Marconi Veterans Association

Newsletter – Marconi Veterans Association


Posted on 15th April 201915th May 2019MVA Newsletter 2019 – Edition number 21Please click on the title MVA Newsletter 2019 above to open the full document with the index and on any picture in this newsletter to open a larger image. Peter Turrall, Chairman Marconi Veterans AssociationOne hundred and twenty years ago in Chelmsford, Guglielmo Marconi established the world’s first wireless factory. From a small unit just outside the city centre around thirty employees manufactured products which eventually were sold worldwide, establishing communications in the widest sense to assist shipping and contacts by wireless communication, thus opening up a system where day-to-day contacts were possible. Chelmsford became a centre of attention for many countries who wished to take advantage of this new means of communication having only previously had sthe telephone for this purpose. It was not long before Marconi’s Wireless and Telegraph Company found larger premises near the centre of Chelmsford and eventually over a period of one hundred years employed many thousands of people. Chelmsford should be proud that an Italian, who became an absolute academic engineering genius, set up the largest wireless company in the world giving large scale employment to citizens in and around the city of Chelmsford In 1920 the company’s Wireless Station known as 2LO, based in London with all equipment manufactured in Chelmsford, was taken over by the British Government to form the United Kingdom’s first broadcast organisation known as British Broadcasting Company and later renamed British Broadcasting Corporation. Not only all the Marconi equipment but also the Marconi staff of Station 2LO came under the direction of the new organisation affectionately known as the BBC. Chelmsford City Council has failed to recognise the asset this city has. The statue of Guglielmo Marconi, erected a few years ago and sponsored by a number of organisations including the City Council, is hidden behind the bus station – an insult to this great man. Coming into the City of Chelmsford, there are signs at every point of entry stating ‘Chelmsford the Birthplace of Radio’. Many times the City Council has been advised that the word ‘Radio’ should read ‘Wireless’ as Marconi named his organisation Marconi’s Wireless and Telegraph Company. Marconi in Chelmsford did not make radios as the signs suggest. In giving recognition and respect to one of the world’s great engineers, Chelmsford City Council should re-erect the statue in the centre of Chelmsford in Half Moon Square and amend all entry signs accordingly.
