When Big Joan Sets Up 24/3/11 – Singles Night

Originally this post had a lame “Two Ronnies” style pun about 7 inches being enough for anyone in the title – but frankly I’m better than that and so are you.

Anyroad, after Simon Ashberry’s claim on this very blog here, that 2011 was turning in to a cracking year for music – excellent records of every stripe have rained down upon our grateful upturned faces like er…rain and happily a good number of these have been shiny black 7″ singles as I was getting a bit concerned that we were going all 1973 with all the LP tracks we’ve been playing.

So, tonight started off as a singles only programme and then transmogrified ( I love typing that word. I’m tempted to do it again) in to a mix of 7″‘s, 12”s (stop it!) LP tracks, downloads and wax cylinders (alright, that last one was a lie)
