ON THE COVER

Branching from the roots

Sebastien Adnot lives, breathes and oozes reggae. With his lax stance and heavily accented, languid tongue, he could easily have teleported direct from Zion itself. Except that Adnot was, in fact, born in France and is now a proud Phnom Penh expat. Despite being located several...

Nu metro

Guilty Pleasures

Fake monks are the opposite of socks. Next thing you know there are two of them, and where they come from nobody knows. Round Marital HQ there’s a mustard-rockin’ posse of booze-breathing Chinese chubsters in gaiters and mala beads, their anti-chakras oozing venal benevolence,...

Jersey sure

Drinkin’ in the rain

About this time a year ago I checked the forecast. Thunder showers Sunday was the prediction. Perfect, says I. Monsoon Cocktails and dinner in the rain. As Sunday’s clouds gathered, I hastened to one of the many canopied places on Street 172 and ducked in just as the sky billowed...

Revolving & evolving

FRI 26 | Who doesn’t love a good ol’ Irish jig? If there’s one band that’ll keep you on your toes (in more ways than one) it’s Kheltica. You probably know of them already, as they’re the city’s longest running Celtic music band, and probably one of the longest running bands...
