Fabulous Funky Disco
Saturday 29th November 7:30pm-11pm

Join us for an evening of disco dancing. Don’t snigger, this will be ace fun! We’re DJ-ing at Left Bank Leeds.

It’s a not for profit event, and, as purveyors of a nice spread, we’re bound to play something you’ll want to dance to.

Full details and ticket info here

Saturday 6th December 8pm-11pm

Then on 6th December we’re hosting The Record Club at the Kirkgate Centre in Shipley. The theme is, of course, Christmas and we’ll be playing three full LPs by Andrew Jackson Jihad, Phil Spector and Sufjan Stevens. There’ll also be a little time to play your own Christmas records in between, plus there’s a Pop Quiz (and who doesn’t love a music quiz, eh?). To get you in the mood you can check out the playlist we’ve put together – you’ll notice it’s not typical of the Xmas music that gets pumped into our earholes every time we go shopping. And check out full details of the event on the Record Club website.

One more thing… Boris is reported to be doing well after his accident, and there’s still time to make a small donation to Keswick Mountain Rescue who saved him. This fundraising effort by Ewan Mitchell has exceeded £1000, which is just awesome. Massive snogs to everyone who’s donated!

We hope to see you at the disco and/or Record Club!

Eclectic Mainline 2nd October 2013

This Saturday, Bird (listen below) and Monster Killed by Lasers (played in this week’s Eclectic Mainline) play at a Golden Cabinet gig at Shipley’s Kirkgate Centre.

Speaking of the Kirkgate Centre, I was there last Saturday as Wilful Missing were curating The Record Club.  If you are minded to see what records we played, and read what I had to say about one record in particular, Aw Come Aw Wry by Phosphorescent, have a look at The Record Club website.

Anyway, back to the now.  Music featured in this week’s programme included a couple of tracks from the excellent new Steve Hauschildt compilation on Editions Mego, including this:
