Slowdive, gig review: Expansive noise becomes symphonic and hypnotising 

Evening Standard logo
Bands reforming is not a new phenomenon, but whilst sentimental tours used to be the norm we are increasingly seeing bands adding to their hallowed back-catalogues. Slowdive, Ride, My Bloody Valentine and Jesus and Mary Chain have all reformed in recent years, and whilst their original existences petered-out - mostly owing to a lack of commercial interest - shoegaze music has returned as the beating heart of British alternative music and is seemingly bigger than it was first time round. All but My Bloody Valentine have released a new record in the last couple of months and the stakes are higher than ever as reforming ceases to be a convenient mid-life cash cow. A lack of meaningful modern noise bands has given the genre back to its creators, and if the quality remains as high as it is, it's no bad thing. Perhaps most surprisingly, after a 22-year break between albums, Slowdive haven't changed a bit. Three decades of craft and experience adds to the muddy soundscapes that characterised 1993's 'Souvlaki' and armed with the critically acclaim 'Slowdive', the Reading-band bring their expansive sound to one of London's finest venues. Read more The best gigs in London - what's on and what to book The Roundhouse offers strangely participatory atmosphere, placing the audience at the centre with the lights emitting from the stage rather than onto it. Instead of playing to the back of the room, the sound seems to gather in the middle like an incantation. The band switched effortlessly between era's, opening with the newer 'Slomo' before retreating to fan-favourite 'Catch the Breeze'. In such a mythologised back-catalogue it is easy to argue every song is a fan favourite, but special recognition goes to new track 'Star Roving' which is an obvious stand out from the set and one of the best songs in the band's catalogue. Fronted by Neil Halstead and Rachel Goswell, the band power through the set with little interaction between songs and the glorious, expansive noise - barely punctuated - becomes symphonic and hypnotising. Wonderful melodies are obscured by a wall of noise, and yet even these great individual musical moments can be more than the sum of their parts. It's easy to forget in the maelstrom of reverb that at the heart of the noise lies a perfectly crafted pop song. There is no better example of this than 'Alison', a genre defining piece of music based around a delicate three-chord song transformed into a dreamy, spacious anthem. They bring the night - and the tour - to a close with an emphatic reverb-soaked '40 Days'. In the unlikely event that Reading ever host the World Cup then this final track is a shoe-in for the official tournament anthem.... read more

Saudi diplomat will be sued by 'slave labour' maid who claims she worked 17-hour days, Supreme Court rules 

Evening Standard logo
The Supreme Court today delivered a landmark victory to the campaign against domestic slavery, ruling that a Saudi envoy cannot hide behind diplomatic immunity to avoid being sued by a woman he is accused of putting to work for up to 17 hours a day. Filipina Cherrylyn Reyes claimed she was forced to work at the official residence of Jarallah al-Malki and his wife as soon as she arrived in Britain. She says her passport was confiscated, she was banned from leaving the home and told she could not contact her family. Ms Reyes, who fled the residence after three months, sued for racial discrimination and harassment but was told by an employment tribunal that her claim would fail because Mr al-Malki has diplomatic immunity. However, the Supreme Court today ruled immunity expired when he left the UK in 2014, and he should face the tribunal. Ms Reyes said: "I know there are lots of other domestic workers who have suffered like me, and I'm delighted they will be able to use this case to get redress and not wait as long as I have." The al-Malkis, who deny the claims, declined to comment. The Government had urged the courts to uphold Mr al-Malki's immunity.

Campaigners hailed the ruling, which comes on Anti Slavery Day. Former MP Anthony Steen, chairman of the Human Trafficking Foundation, said: "This is a landmark case which allows for trafficked victims to access justice no matter what the status of the employer." Emmy Gibbs of the Anti Trafficking and Labour Exploitation Unit said: "Overseas domestic workers in diplomatic households and embassies are exceptionally vulnerable." The court heard Ms Reyes was brought to the UK in 2011 thanks to papers given to her by Mr al-Malki, a member of the Saudi diplomatic delegation. She claims she was ill-treated, and fled the residence with the help of police. In a separate ruling today, the court found in favour of two Moroccan nationals employed at the Libyan and Sudanese embassies who claim they have been paid below the minimum wage.... read more
