Nearly summer time, ain’t it?

Massive Attack record cover and turntable

Had a frisky few weeks. All sorts happening at the day job, general elections, Leftfield’s triumphant “Leftism 22” gigs, Talking Heads’ sublime “Stop Making Sense” on the big screen, and plenty more. Same for you guys, no doubt.

Had a grand time at The Angel Microbrewery for our monthly resi session on Friday 2nd June. Mixed Crate Disco vibe that night. Some of what we dropped: Why Can’t we Live Together-Timmy Thomas//Paint It Black-Africa//Safe From Harm-Massive Attack//Slippery People-Talking Heads//T Plays It Cool-Marvin Gaye//Sign Of The Times-Prince//Buffalo Stance(remix)-Neneh Cherry//You Played Yourself-Ice T/Heaven And Hell Is On Earth-20th Century Steel Band//Magnificent Seven-The Clash//Infected-The The//Tiger Stripes-Felix//You Gave Me Love-Crown Heights Affair//For Goodness Sake, Look At Those Cakes-James Brown//Turn This Mutha Out-Idris Muhammad//Grapevine Boogie-Leftside Wobble//People(remix)-Rocket//Still Going Theme-Still Going

Next up is our all-day slot at Sherwood Art Week’s Secret Garden Fair on Saturday 24th June. Dropping tunes all day in and around the acts lined up. Times 10am ’til 6pm. Kinda. If you’ve been, you’ll know the score. Gonna try lift the vibe a wee bit. Well, that’s the plan…

Not forgetting our usual first Friday in month at The Angel Microbrewery on 7th July. Twisted Disco feel that time.

Plus our annual all-day sesh at Blackwood Scouts Beer Festival on Saturday 8th July. Big one, that. Spinnin’ from 2pm ’til 9pm or so. Hope it’s proper sunny, people.

And we may just be doing something for Notts Pride too. More info on that coming soon…
