On Friday night I was invited to spin some records at Wolfson College, Cambridge Uni, as part of their June Event. Also on the bill were The Subways, who played at the same time as me… so I played records for the bar staff and the photographer. Great times!
It was a funky soulful affair and you can hear it here!
The black wax was melting during this show! The weather had me in a soul mood, so here it is for you to enjoy again whilst the sun stays out… and when it goes in play this show out loud for a reminder of brighter times.
A little bit of rock n roll and a nod to Father’s Day too. Enjoy!
It seemed quite fitting that this milestone show should be a Black Wax Live session. Since launching the show I’ve always been thinking of ways of keeping it interesting for myself whilst making shows that people are going to enjoy listening to and being part of. This show ticked all the boxes. You get great music choices and a brilliant live performance from an ever charismatic Attila The Stockbroker. Punk poetry may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but listen in and I’m sure you’ll hear something you can at least agree with, and hopefully enjoy. It’s different, but different is good.
On Thursday, after voting, I went to The Herald pub for their monthly ‘Vinyl Junkies’ open decks night. I was great to see that the night has grown since I last went, and there were more people signed up to spin their records. Again it was a real mix of musical styles and everyone was very welcoming and appreciative of each others’ passion. Vinyl Junkies takes place on the second Thursday of each month at The Herald, Broadly Road, Harlow.
Apologies with the delay in listing the last 2 shows – it’s been a busy couple of weeks! Gigging has taken me back up to Manchester and then over to Serbia, both times with the Newtown Neurotics. Whilst I was off on bass duties my good pal Ricci Ashoori took control of the show for me, so no dead air and if you’re interested in Salt & Vinegar crips show 19 is the one for you!
Both shows are here and track listings are below. Enjoy!
