Wotcha. We’ve been out ’n about a bit lately and there’s more to come too.

First off, cheeky thanks to everyone who bopped ’n hung out at The Angel Microbrewery on 5th May. Punk Post Disco vibe, that night. Steaming time, folks. We’re back there again on Friday 2nd June. Mixed Crate Disco sesh pulling in all sorts of cuts.

We made up to be back at Rough Trade Nottingham on Saturday 20th May. Early doors beats ’n treats family friendly 2 ’til 6 sesh. Dropping all sorts. Been nearly two years since our first slot in the cafe bar space so we’ve chuffed to be still spinning there. Nods to Kyle and his crew for their ongoing support. Nice one.

Here’s a new one too. We’ve been asked to spin tunes at Sherwood Art Week’s Secret Garden Fair on Saturday 24th June. If you’ve ever been you’ll know the format. We’ll be playing rock ’n’ roll, r ’n’ b, jazz and more from 11am till 6pm. Hope it’s sunny that day.

Maybe see you soon, then.

Time to check in, we reckon…

What you lot been up to? Hope you’re all well. Frisky few months spinnin’ ’n other stuff.

Even managed to shoehorn cheeky visits to the Independent Label Market at Spitalfields and SpiritLand, a lush new listening bar in Kings Cross. Right fancy.

Been droppin’ tunes at The Angel Microbrewery for our first Friday each month residency as usual. Great fun. Next sesh on Friday 5th May is gonna have a Post Punk Disco kinda vibe. Long over due sesh, that one. Looking forward to it.

We also had a proper blast playing wax on Record Store Day ’17. We were lucky enough to play at Rough Trade Nottingham, The Bodega and The Angel Microbrewery. Busy one, then. Good to see Hockley ’n Notts buzzin’ so much that day. We even bought a few records too.

One more. Not forgetting our annual all-day sesh at Blackwood Scouts Beer Festival on Saturday 8th July. Big one, that. Spinnin’ all day from 2pm ’til 9pm or so. Hope it’s sunny, people…

We’ve been back spinnin’ at Rough Trade Nottingham…
