Rock 'n' Rolio

Hello there!

I have very kindly been asked to feature an interesting club in London which also provides a great mix of sounds which you can listen to right here:


Rock 'n' Rolio runs on the first Saturday of every month at the Moustache Bar (58 Stoke Newington Road, Dalston N16 7XB). Even better its free to get in and the happy hour lasts till 10:30! Lewis Floyd Henry is also playing live on the 5th of February.

The facebook group is here if your interested:

Oh and a film that every self-respecting person should see...

Letting myself fall behind again - no excuse really, too cold and snow covered outside!

Friday night Pork & Beans was swinging... lots of stuff played, nice to hear more Rhythm & Soul and late 60's stuff being played as opposed to the usual trudging R&B.... Its something to warm the winter spirit!

Will get up a few pictures if any turn up, but in the mean time here are a few spins from our Guest DJ Adam Torel:

The Celebrities - I Choose You
Bob & Fred - I'll Be On My Way
The Sensations - Demanding Man
The Herbs - There Must Be An Answer
Bobby Patterson - If You Took A Survey

We should be back in January so watch this space... Should probably post up some Winter clobber at some point...

Picked up this recently (Thanks to my friend Tommaso) and it f feels a bit like a winter tune, but its just amazing midtempo!

All sorted for the 17th of December, should be a busy one - and even better now we have a crystal clear sound-system!

Joining me and Jamie Parr this month will be Adam Torel, playing at great mix of uptempo 6t's soul, can't wait!

A few tunes you can expect from me:

The Chosen Few - "Birth Of A Playboy" (Maple)
Margie Hendrix - "I Call You A Lover" (Mercury)
Rosco Gordon - "You Got My Bait" (Somada)
Eddie Bo - "Our Love (Will Never Falter)" (Blue Jay)
The Vanguards - "The Thought Of Losing Your Love" (Lamp)

Should be a good'un!

All-nighter feet.

Recovering on a Sunday evening from two nights which were amazing musically - Soul or Nothing and Radcliffe all-nighter.

Serious records played both nights and Karl Heard in the Soul or Nothing room at Radcliffe blew me away again - the most under-rated DJ ever?

Highlights for me were 'Twinkle Little Star' by the Parisians, 'Ruby' by Lee Brackett, 'Lost in the Crowd' by Billy Byrd and 'Stop & Think' by Tommy Bush (great great cheapie!). But there were too many good tunes to remember even a fraction of the names.

Just got a copy of this as well, so very happy!

I'm back!

Right! Sort of lost interest in the whole blogging jazz, but thought I would give it another go - with some more self-congratulatory bollocks... now from up in the dirty North!

So whats new on the clubbing/music/fashion side of things...

December:

Pork & Beans on the 17th!


Boom Shaka Lacka from the Italians and the Frenchman on the 22nd:


Also bashed out a flier for a mates night in December, should be good (maybe I should think about going into graphic design?!):


And this mayhem for February (cannot wait!):


Check it out on a (very recommended) website of my mates for more info as well:

Also been putting together some finishing touches on a new compilation CD, but my laptop decided to pack in and delete all my music, but it will be finished soon!

Been buying lots of music & watching lots of films (hours of Blaxploitation!) & a few nice pieces of clobber, more details to follow shortly...
