Big Fish Present: Hed Kandi Back To Love

Featuring Andy Norman, together with Johnboy Lee and Live on vocals Samantha James featuring Southerner.
A-Avenue. Feb 16. 2008

Andy Norman

Now seen as the elder statesman of Hed Kandi DJ Andy Norman was part of the founding line-up of one the UK's biggest dance record labels. He started working with label founder Mark Doyle back in 1989; around the time when they held small local club events for a number of years. It was during this period that Hed Kandi was born.

Andy worked on the London club circuit for some years, working with amongst others The Crazy Club & Black And White Productions along side the likes of Alex P, Smokin Joe & Fat Tony. Well respected for playing numerous dance music styles over the years he has played for a number of UK recording artists too like The Pet Shop Boys & Jamiroquai to name but two.

Currently part of Team Kandi and a main resident for six years now, Andy continues to grace some of the world's greatest nightclubs across all of the continents. He's still a part of the Kandi radio team too presenting a regular weekly show. He based his DJ style as something of a party crowd pleaser, "If you play to the ladies, you are all guaranteed to have one really great party!" "I simply love to see people smiling and having a lot of fun"

Samantha James

In Samantha James, Om Records could well have a future multi-album star. 'Rise', her debut album, is a smooth and enchanting blend of lite house, fused with her Sade-esque vocals. The eponymous lead single has already set the tone - a potent cocktail of incisive sensuality that perfectly fuses dance-inflected bossa nova rhythms, with waves of vivid vocal emotion. And on the remainder of the opus, she creates a beautiful marriage of chill beats and multi-layered musicianship that ooze of a rare quality. 'Breathe You In', 'Living Without You' and 'Send It Out to the Universe' is a trio of essential tracks on an album without an obvious weak-link — and which conspire to make Samantha James one of the most happeninggreen-eyed soulstress .

Johnboy Lee (Man behind the BIGFISH Radio show)

John Paul Lee is better known as Johnboy. His introduction to dance music came at the time when hip-hop and early fun-house sounds were the staple dance floor fillers, with the likes of Jellybean Benitez and Madonna at the helm. He credits Arthur Baker, BT, Leftfield and Frankie Knuckles as his musical influences. He went on to obtain a Diploma in Music Production and Engineering at the Fullsail Center of Arts in Orlando, USA, in 1993, spending his last year at college on 500KZ FM as a Mastermix Jock, doing 4 hours non-stop dance remixes radio show. Not content to stop providing the American college beat, he also finished off a whole decade at clubs in Manila (Phillippines), Koh Samui (Thailand), Bali (Indonesia), Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Dubai (U.A.E), Hong Kong, Shanghai (China), Kota Kinabalu, Penang and of course Kuala Lumpur. The opportunity to work in a Top 40 radio station (Hitz FM) came knocking at his door in 1996 & had a wonderful 5 years with them.

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday marks the onset of the Lent, the 40-day period of fasting and abstinence. It is also known as the 'Day of Ashes'. So called because on that day at church the faithful have their foreheads marked with ashes in the shape of a cross.

The name 'Day of Ashes' comes from "Dies Cinerum" in the Roman Missal and is found in the earliest existing copies of the Gregorian Sacramentary. The concept originated by the Roman Catholics somewhere in the 6th century. Though the exact origin of the day is not clear, the custom of marking the head with ashes on this Day is said to have originated during the papacy of Gregory the Great (590-604).

In the Old Testament ashes were found to have used for two purposes: as a sign of humility
and mortality; and as a sign of sorrow and repentance for sin. The Christian connotation for ashes in the liturgy of Ash Wednesday has also been taken from this Old Testament biblical custom./
Receiving ashes on the head as a reminder of mortality and a sign of sorrow for sin was a practice of the Anglo-Saxon church in the 10th century. It was made universal throughout the Western church at the Synod of Benevento in 1091.

Originally the use of ashes to betoken penance was a matter of private devotion. Later it became part of the official rite for reconciling public penitents. In this context, ashes on the penitent served as a motive for fellow Christians to pray for the returning sinner and to feel sympathy for him. Still later, the use of ashes passed into its present rite of beginning the penitential season of Lent on Ash Wednesday.

There can be no doubt that the custom of distributing the ashes to all the faithful arose from a devotional imitation of the practice observed in the case of public penitents. But this devotional usage, the reception of a sacramental which is full of the symbolism of penance (cf. the cor contritum quasi cinis of the "Dies Irae") is of earlier date than was formerly supposed. It is mentioned as of general observance for both clerics and faithful in the Synod of Beneventum, 1091 (Mansi, XX, 739), but nearly a hundred years earlier than this the Anglo-Saxon homilist Ƭfric assumes that it applies to all classes of men.

Putting a 'cross' mark on the forehead was in imitation of the spiritual mark or seal that is put on a Christian in baptism. This is when the newly born Christian is delivered from slavery to sin and the devil, and made a slave of righteousness and Christ (Rom. 6:3-18).

This can also be held as an adoption of the way 'righteousness' are described in the book of Revelation, where we come to know about the servants of God.The reference to the sealing of the servants of God for their protection in Revelation is an allusion to a parallel passage in Ezekiel, where Ezekiel also sees a sealing of the servants of God for their protection:

"And the LORD said to him [one of the four cherubim], 'Go through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark [literally, "a tav"] upon the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it.' And to the others he said in my hearing, 'Pass through the city after him, and smite; your eye shall not spare, and you shall show no pity; slay old men outright, young men and maidens, little children and women, but touch no one upon whom is the mark. And begin at my sanctuary.' So they began with the elders who were before the house." (Ezekiel 9:4-6)

Unfortunately, like most modern translations, the one quoted above (the Revised Standard Version, which we have been quoting thus far), is not sufficiently literal. What it actually says is to place a tav on the foreheads of the righteous inhabitants of Jerusalem. Tav is one of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and in ancient script it looked like the Greek letter chi, which happens to be two crossed lines (like an "x") and which happens to be the first letter in the word "Christ" in Greek Christos). The Jewish rabbis commented on the connection between tav and chi and this is undoubtedly the mark Revelation has in mind when the servants of God are sealed in it.

The early Church Fathers seized on this tav-chi-cross-christos connection and expounded it in their homilies, seeing in Ezekiel a prophetic foreshadowing of the sealing of Christians as servants of Christ. It is also part of the background to the Catholic practice of making the sign of the cross, which in the early centuries (as can be documented from the second century on) was practiced by using one's thumb to furrow one's brow with a small sign of the cross, like Catholics do today at the reading of the Gospel during Mass.

I hope that you went to chruch and have ash on your head.
