Andy Peek - Record Store Day Review



Good Morning sports fans,

and welcome to another Monday morning...

Fresh off the back of another successful weekend, with 420 day on Saturday along with my housemates 30th, Record Store Day and the first BBQ of the season - a rad time was had by all. On top of that throw in a fresh new mixtape from me (more on that soon) and getting offered a new job, one could say it was a weekend to remember. Maybe that lucky bus ticket no.21 in my wallet is working it's magic... 

And so on to the business end of the blog, and today I've got another little number from Manchester's Andy Peek (C'mon Feet, Go Dumb!, Surround Yo' Sound Show). And This month he's done a Record Store Day Review spanning Soul, Disco, Funk & Rock. It's got a bit of Bowie, Dr John, Lee 'Scratch' Perry & The Orb as well as exclusives from Grizzly Bear and Sly and the Family Stone. More podcast than mixtape this one but hey-ho, I write the rules, so I can break them.

Until next time...

Boca 45 -Live at Thirsty Ear Jukebox 45s 06/04/13




Here is the first 90 mins of Boca 45's gig at The Harley for last Saturday's Thirsty Ear Jukebox 45s night. It's a tasty selection of funky 7"s to get those toes tapping this Tuesday morn. Slick flyer art by Mister Hope, too. 

"...probably 5 pints in, about to get onto The Makers Mark - let me know what you think"

Jules X - Playground 4, Boca 45 - Solid Steel 01/07/11

Ahoy-hoy,

I'm back from my trip to Switzerland, and what a lot of fun it was playing Apr├Ęs sets in the shadow of the mighty Dom mountain at Snowpoint Bar & Grill - big up yourself Laura, Henry,Tricky and Hev - cheers for having me. Also props to Flav at Nightlife for hosting the annual SFDJ competition once again (you can check out my drunken offerings from the first heat here). Sadly didn't get to retain the crown, but a thoroughly brillo night, none the less. Congrats go out to DJ Hometown for delivering the winning set. Lastly a special thanks to the Happy Bar for having me back once more - always a pleasure to rock that place, 'til next year!

So back to the UK with a bang, and about time I posted some of the mixes I've been bouncing around to. So this week I've a few vinyl only mixes for your listening pleasure. Always a fan of a good genre-spanner here in the crypt, first up is a sweet little number from Belgium's DJ Jules X. Playground 4 is an aural assortment of funk, rock, hip hop, electro, rave and much more, cut up with a few movie samples to create a party mixtape that is sure to make you twitch like Bill Oddie during hatching season. Check out more of his mixes on the website here
