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.
Apologies for the interruption in service – life gets in the way sometimes …
Waaaaay too busy with, work, family, etc etc, so there was a brief hiatus
I’m going to have to start calling this three on a Friday aren’t I?
It’s felt like spring this week hasn’t it? Sun on my back, not getting utterly soaked and frozen cycling to work – I could get used to this (sadly, knowing the British weather, this is as good as it’ll get all year …)
Time for a another ToT! (finally)
Apologies for missing this last week, but a combination of nightmare children objecting to bedtime and a wife returning from travelling with work meant I was up to my eyeballs. Then life happened, and all of a sudden it’s a week later
For those of you who were paying attention the other week, I super-subbed for the mighty talented Rackabeat on Saturday night down at the rather charming Steam Crane, and had a wonderful time. Many beats were broken and breaks were dropped, or some such.
Still, shall we?
