8 Brummie games that changed the UK home computer scene
Posted on July 23, 2015 by Jon Bounds
No Comments darr;
The Commodore Amiga is 30 years old today but while journalists line up to rain plaudits down on this iconic machine the most important part of the story of the Amiga 鈥 and all the other classic 鈥80s and 鈥90s home computer systems 鈥 has been lost. We鈥檙e talking of course of the role of Birmingham in some of the most important computer games, ever. Read through any top 10 list of computer games during the 8 and 16 bit eras and you鈥檒l find Brum鈥檚 fingerprints all over it. Are we talking about hot development houses, based out of tastefully restored Digbeth workshops? No. Are we talking about corporate giants, with satellite offices in a prestigious business park in Bickenhill? No. And anyway, being that near to the airport means they鈥檙e in Solihull.
No. We鈥檙e talking about the shit tonne of licensing and admin running out of Perry Barr. Yep, Perry Barr is where all your electric dreams were builded.
US Gold were based in Holford Industrial Estate in Perry Barr, former home to the Kynoch Works, and they were responsible for bringing games from American developers such as Capcom into your UK bedroom. These were the unsung heroes who checked all the orders, who filed the paperwork, and possibly moved inventory around, we don鈥檛 know. Their work put the power in your hands 鈥 the power to save princesses, drive cars, or fight your way to the top. Here鈥檚 our rundown on the best computer game admin done by Birmingham temps:

The Ruin Under Water 鈥 our perfect Birmingham Pub
Posted on July 16, 2015 by Howard Wilkinson
No Comments darr;
The latest Birmingham PLC press release 鈥 painstakingly recreated as news by the local paper 鈥 makes many proud boasts about the planned redevelopment of the Christopher Wray lighting factory. It includes the usual lauding of new shiny buildings and a shameless brag about how much the land has gone up in value since the owner bought up the previously undesirable site for cheap and banked it until HS2 was a dead cert.
But the thing that stood out for us was the claim that they #8217;re going to make Brum #8217;s first #8220;ruin pub #8221; 鈥 they #8217;ve been ruining pubs all around town for years now, so how can this be a first?
There are actual ruins like the Fox amp; Grapes, just a few hundred yards from Christopher Wray, which is surely only one more stray match away from joining Island House in becoming a car park for new builds of Snow Hill. And then there are the more prosaically ruined pubs, like The Dog on Hagley Road which had its rabbit warren of snugs hollowed out to make a generic cavern to house an Ember Inn 鈥 the sort of pub ruin that is happening somewhere near you right now, no doubt.
And then there are the trendy pubs, of course, they鈥檙e the real ruins. But what should a real pub be like? We asked Andre De Orwell to describe his perfect watering hole..

101 Things Brum Gave The World. No. 76: The hollow promises, lies, and shattered dreams of fame and stardom
Posted on July 14, 2015 by Jon Hickman
No Comments darr;
Yesterday I was happy to play
For a penny or two a song
Till a fellah in a black sedan
Took a shine to my one-man-band
He said, 鈥淲e got plans for you, you #8217;d never dream鈥
You鈥檙e a Star, Carl Wayne鈥檚 theme song for Birmingham-based television talent show New Faces, tells the story of art constrained by commerce, of authentic culture packaged by a star system. The narrator finds success of a sort, measured in his new possessions and receives acclaim from all around but his song is a confidence trick. The only positive emotion he has is in the first line, and is already linked to the past: 鈥淵esterday I was happy to play鈥.
Musically too this is dour stuff, its leaden rhythm is hidden by a sing-along hook in the chorus. This is a cathartic song. Such melancholia makes You鈥檙e a Star a strange anthem for a show like New Faces that fetishises stardom, a show whose very MacGuffin is the pursuit of fame. Yet this is perhaps the greatest trick of stardom, that it hides its shame in plain sight. Indeed New Faces #8216; great rival, Opportunity Knocks, achieved much the same feat of doublethink with Kiki Dee鈥檚 Star, which camouflages the lines 鈥淭hey can build you up / And they can break you down / With just the right words鈥 behind the jauntiness in an almost Smithsian way.
Now you鈥檒l be forgiven for thinking I鈥檓 about to claim that Birmingham invented Saturday night television (it played a hand in that, of course). Possibly you suspect I鈥檓 going to say that New Faces, filmed firstly at the ATV Centre off Broad Street and then latterly at the Birmingham Hippodrome, was the first television talent show and therefore the precursor of the blockbuster global formats X-Factor, Pop Idol and, er, Fame Academy. Sadly not: Opportunity Knocks predates New Faces by many years.
Perhaps you think I will make the case for Birmingham inventing the light entertainment public vote, which is so ubiquitous in the modern talent show era? To be honest we bodged that one. The theatre audience at New Faces could vote live via push buttons wired to Marti Caine鈥檚 鈥楽paghetti Junction鈥 scoreboard but the rest of us at home had to write in on a postcard to place our vote. Uncle Bob and his Opportunity Knocks lot responded to the postcard innovation with a telephone vote meaning that the London show could give results on the night while here in Birmingham we had to wait a week for the postal votes to be collated. In any case, these are all petty side issues compared to the real issue at hand: how Birmingham invented the whole sham that is fame itself.

Re: It #8217;s fun to stay
Hi Andy,
How #8217;s the shop going? I #8217;ve just stepped in to do some consultancy on the new Combinded Authority and thought we could maybe use your budget for some promo. The councils don #8217;t have any as you know.
How about we fire up our Midlands Engine with something like this. Excuse the note form, our target personas should be
Construction workers on those new mixed unitsPoliceman who patrol EDL marches and the Tory conference
The cowboy rounds up the horses running free on Black Country estates
The #8216;Red Indian #8217; could be the Batli triangle, or the indigenous whites in Kingstanding.
..and then there #8217;s the song
Business: There #8217;s no need to feel scared.
I said, Business, we #8217;re equipped and prepared.
I said, Business, #8217;cause you #8217;re in a new town
There #8217;s no need to be unhappy.
Business, there #8217;s a place you can go.
I said, Business, we #8217;ll accept all your dough.
You can stay there, and I #8217;m sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time.
Come and invest in the W.M.C.A.
Come and invest in the W.M.C.A.
They have everything for you staff to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the Bores #8230;
Come and invest in the W.M.C.A.
Come and invest in the W.M.C.A.
Your Tax bill will be clean, you can have a good meal (no plates),
You can do whatever you feel #8230;
Business, are you listening to me?
I said, Business, what do you want to be?
I said, Business, you can make real your dreams.
But you got to know this one thing!
No man does it all by himself.
I said, Business, put your pride on the shelf,
And just go there, to the W.M.C.A.
I #8217;m sure they can help you today.
Come and invest in the W.M.C.A.
Come and invest in the W.M.C.A.
They have everything for you men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys #8230;
It #8217;s fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A.
It #8217;s fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A.
You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal,
You can do whatever you feel #8230;
Business, I was once in your shoes.
I said, Business, buy a box down the Blues.
I felt no man cared if I were alive.
I felt that London was so jive #8230;

BRUMHOLE: 6 Birmingham Pubs for party leadership hopefuls
Posted on June 27, 2015 by Howard Wilkinson
No Comments darr;
If you鈥檙e a member of the Labour Party you鈥檒l be inundated right now with texts and emails from the various comrades who want to lead the party, or even stand around in the background while someone else does.
From the triumphalist Andy Burnham campaign, whose emails read like they鈥檙e shouting 鈥渨e鈥檙e alright鈥 at you in a hall in Sheffield, to the terse, Hemingwayesque prose of a Jeremy Corbyn text message* (鈥淩unning for leader. Text STOP, messages will be ended鈥) via Caroline Flint and her amazing x-factor-emotive backstory VT (鈥済rowing up we had it tough, me mom taught me to work hard鈥).
And then this week we had an email from Liz Kendall, asking us out for a drink in Moseley at 鈥渢he Dark Horse public house鈥. Yes everyone knows that the working class likes a drink (just ask Nige), so it鈥檚 good for Liz to have a go at reaching out to us proles. Her researchers have let her down a bit though as 鈥減ublic house鈥 is the language of someone who might have an occasional Campari at the golf club but wouldn鈥檛 really be found propping up the bar at The Gate, in Sutton Coldfield, talking about the latest transfer news from local boys West Ham. It鈥檚 a strange choice of pub too, unless you鈥檙e keen to appeal to an aspirational slate-as-a-plate gourmet burger munching third way metropolitan voter type. We suspect it was the name that attracted her to the venue. Well you may think you鈥檙e a Dark Horse, Liz but we all know you鈥檙e a shy tory.
Here鈥檚 a rundown of some of the other political events happening in Birmingham pubs this weekend:

An open letter to Jess Phillips, the camper van beef over
Posted on June 25, 2015 by Howard Wilkinson
1 Comment darr;
An open letter to Yardley鈥檚 new MP. It has to be open as we鈥檝e not got a fixed address to sent it to.
Dear Jess,
Congratulations on the election. We were chuffed, never big John Hemming fans, and we had a good joke lined up for when you beat him. You鈥檙e a breath of fresh air. Much like the fresh air you say you intended to camp out under in protest at the cost of London accommodation.
But we鈥檝e got a question to ask, about your methods. Nice van, but the plan is dodgy.
Were you planning to:
a) camp illegally? In the UK camping is controlled by several pieces of legislation, including the Public Health Act of 1936 and the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960. And well #8211; it鈥檚 not going to be a restful night with all the undesirables that live locally. There鈥檚 that Cameron chap for one.

Jim Lee: All Star Batman amp; Robin, the Boy Wonder no.1
Why claim Batman?
Birmingham isn鈥檛 short of its own, real, superheroes after all. The Statesman is a Bromsgrove bank clerk by day and at night prowls the city in mask and ever-so-slightly too tight T-shirt ready to thwart drunks and burglars. Malala Yousafzai is a symbol of peace and hope all over the world with a seeming immunity to bullets. And Birmingham鈥檚 Lunar Society were a team-up of some of the country鈥檚 greatest free thinkers, geniuses, and crusaders for equality.
So, why claim Batman?

BRUMHOLE: 57 jokes we would have made about the Heinz #8211; Kraft merger if we #8217;d noticed it happening in April
Posted on June 19, 2015 by Howard Wilkinson

It turns out that while we weren鈥檛 closely watching the big financial news earlier this year, Kraft 鈥 who own Cadbury, remember* 鈥 were sort of absorbed into the third largest food brand in the world: HP stealing bastards Heinz. And so now all of it is owned by a load of the 1% including Warren Buffet. Maybe. It #8217;s all hellishly complicated and driven by profit.
We had such fun when we make jokes about Philadelphia cheese flavoured chocolates during the Kraft takeover that we鈥檙e really annoyed to have missed this opportunity to mash up Heinz #8217;s huge variety of products with Cadbury鈥檚 in a whimsical way. So we鈥檙e going to do it anyway, here鈥檚 57 jokes we should have made back in April:

BRUMHOLE: Vote for the 7 balloons you #8217;d like to see save Birmingham #8217;s cultural infrastructure

We all love the minion thing, but what would be the best shape of a balloon to represent Birmingham and be filmed deflating in all of our cuts-threatened institutions?
Could a video of escaping hot air around Fort Dunlop save the Post and Mail? How about one of those balloons that goes weeeeeeee and rushes around. Maybe that #8217;s what the library needs. Within office hours.
Full of hot air? Could a deflating balloon of Mike Whitby star in the viral vid to save Birmingham.

101 Things Brum Gave The World. No. 74: Eugenics
Posted on June 16, 2015 by Jon Bounds

I #8217;m not a psychoanalyst, but in the case of Francis Galton I #8217;ll have a look. Grandson of Erasmus Darwin (erstwhile Lunar Society member, poet, naturalist, and inventor of the PA system), and hence cousin of Charles who was 13 years his senior, he devoted most of his life to promoting the idea that genius was hereditary.
His other grandfather was Samuel #8216;John; Galton, from Duddeston and also a Lunar Society member, who was a prominent Quaker and arms manufacturer who seems to have excelled in many things. Except #8216;getting interesting nicknames #8217; and the pacifist bit of Quakerism.
Francis #8217;s dad, known as Samuel Tertius Galton, wrote papers on economics and his older brother Darwin Galton became High Sheriff of Warwickshire. Can you feel the familial pressure to succeed yet?
