"These are dark days…"

Broad Street

Wow, it’s changed. All of it. For all of us.

A week or so ago, things were so very different. Notts tahn is now a ghost town while in lockdown mode.

We’ve been bunkered in with our DDS fam for a while. Did have a sneaky wander last weekend before things got really serious.

Sad to see Broad Street bereft of its usual noisy buzz but now essential. No question.

We’ve squeezed out a cheeky mixtape of tunes we bagged for our Malt Cross resi slot. Along with the 2nd instalment “Goodbye To The Guvnor”. We’ll be bunging out more in the coming weeks…

Not much else we can say. Please look after yourselves and loved ones.

Stay home, save lives.

Outta the gate for ’20…

Our big mates at Jam Cafe has got us doing another noisy Post Punk Disco session on Saturday 29th February. Usual filthy yet sublime mix of Alt Disco, New Wave ‘n Post Punk. Dancing’ time, people. Proper.
