Went to the Herald pub in Harlow this eve for their ‘Vinyl Junkies’ open decks night.
Didn’t really know what to expect, but I knew it was a musically open minded pub so packed a small box of mixed records.
Not a busy night by any means but it’s only the second one they’ve done so word will hopefully spread. I played around 40 mins. Was unsure of what would go down well but then one of the good things about a small crowd is that there are less people to impress.
It was a fun night and all the DJs were different, will try and get to the next one if I can though I think the idea of having a theme is a good one so they can pull an audience who are into what’s on. It seemed a bit like DJ club, bring your girl (or boy) friend along.
Anyhow, here’s what I played:
The Stooges – Now I Wanna Be Your Dog
Funkadelic – Hit It and Quit It
Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reed – Cut Ya Down
Ripple – I Don’t Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky
Betty Harris – Mean Man
Black Heat – Drive My Car
Detroit Cobras – Cha Cha Twist
Imperial State Electric – (Why Don’t You) Leave It Alone
Them – Baby Please Don’t Go
The Seeds – Can’t Seem To Make You Mine
Randy & The Rainbows – Denise
The Standells – Dirty Water
James Brown – Cold Sweat Part 1
Night Trains – No More Heroes
Stevie Wonder – Don’t You Worry Bout A Thing
Pama International – Heatwave
