Went to see good buddies of the blog, The Allergies, at their triumphant live gig at Bristol’s Colston Hall last Friday – an epic time was had by all, and afterwards, there was a proper spotter-fest at Cosies, with all sorts of oddities and rarities being spun by DJ Format, aided and abetted by local vinyl pusher and fount of all things record related, John Stapleton. Some of these may, let’s face it, will, feature below.
Its rare when I’m at a gig and can’t recognise 50% of the tunes being played, or at least which samples the track is using, but the DJ Format set had me foxed, and was one of the best selected sets of eclectic beats and breaks I’ve heard in a very long time.
Two in two weeks. Aren’t you lot lucky!
So, it’s been a while …
What with one thing and another – ok, two of the things are the kids who’ve needed entertaining for the last 6 weeks, and another is my propensity to spend the last 3 Thursdays stuck in a field with no signal, meaning not much time for digging and less for tunes.
As an extra special reward for this, and for the first time in over 160 Three on a Thursday’s, I’m going to double up.
Yes, you heard me.
6 tunes below the line. Hope you’ve got your listening ears on.
Apologies for the interruption in service – life gets in the way sometimes …
Wasn’t sure whether I was going to get the opportunity, work is mental, the kids are feral, but I’ve got a beer, and I’ve stumbled across some nice tunes – and it’s either write this or find another way of avoiding the football on TV …
A little late this week, as I’ve been in full on ‘enjoying my family mode’, and didn’t get round to this on Thursday, (or Friday or Saturday for that matter) – thing is I’m on a bit of a run of form at the moment, and there are some belters out there which I need to share with you lot
One that note …
Sometimes, digging up 3 tracks for you lot to feast your ears on is hard work – ploughing through screeds of derivative stale takes on the same old samples, dodging PRs who insist I’m going to love their latest alt-country star (I won’t), and avoiding EDM can chafe a touch.
Compared to normal, this week’s been pretty easy. My tune-radar was finely honed and the following 3 stunners pretty much dropped into my lap this week. Result!
