Hello Black Waxers!
It’s been a while since the last bit of Black Wax news so here it all is in one place.
Firstly – Black Wax returns Sunday 24th September, 5pm – 7pm on Phoenix Live Radio. Phoenix Live is the new name for Phoenix Community Radio and broadcasts from the same location, but everything’s been given a bit of a makeover. Set your bookmarks to www.phoenixlive.online as that is where it’s all happening. The show has a new look, new feel, new guests but the same great mix of Rock N Roll, Punk and Soul spinning on the decks.

Woah there! Someone’s been slacking big time. This show took place on 16th July and I’ve only just got round to posting it here. Sorry! This was my last show before a scheduled break for summer (summer!? Umbrella season) and it’s the landmark show 25! Even if I do say so myself, this show is great! I’d been absent for a couple of weeks previous and it was good to be back in spinning records.

A very big thank you to Graham McIsaac for sitting in for a couple of Black Wax shows. It was very much appreciated – I can only apologise for exposing you to the curse of the Black Wax Deck 2!
Some great tunes here –
A return to the ‘mixed bag’ format of playing a cross genre mix of hot tracks! Cheap Trick were rockin’ London in the week so out came the Dream Police picture disc!

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.

Hit full screen and turn the volume up on this! The brand new video from Black Wax favourites Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind – Heavy Lounge #1 from the debut album Super Natural.
Filmed at Phoenix Studios in Harlow.
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!
