DJ History Podcast #42

Blimey, it's well parky today, innit? Proper winter vibes in the Brewster household. I'm going to put another pair of socks on in a minute and maybe even walk round house with a hot water bottle strapped to my tummy and pretend it's a bulletproof vest and I'm in the Viet Cong. Or maybe I'll just have a hot cup of tea and a biscuit.

Anyway, here's the tracklisting for today's podcast:
LOGG - (You Got) That Something  (JM After-Session M&M Mix)
LINDSTROM & CHRISTABELLE - Lovesick (Feedelity)

DJ History Podcast #40

I'm still reeling from last night's excellent mod shindig, The Original Mods at the Horse & Groom. When I say reeling, I actually mean hungover, which fermented nicely on the train back home so by the time I had arrived it had risen and baked perfectly into a cracking headache. Ow. This was topped off nicely by losing half my daughter's school uniform (how do you lose half a school uniform, for God's sakes!?).

Anyhow, great turnout from the MODS of London and roundabouts, with speakers Jeff Dexter, Dena Sprigens and Lloyd Johnson and host Paul Gorman. We even had some ace old faces inthe audience, including Guy Stevens' widow Diane. Thanks a lot to Jeff and Hugh for providing 60s sounds afterwards and to Jonny 5 and Benoit & Namedrop for their ever dependable contributions.

Next month is the Low Life Xmas party and Mini Record Fair. Entry is FREE. More details to follow.

This week's podcast is a Boy's Own special, to celebrate the publication of Boy's Own: The Complete Fanzines.

And now here are this week's football results:
SESSOMATTO - Moody (Joey Negro Club Mix) (JBO)
EXTORTION - How Do You See Me Now? (Boy's Own)
NATIVE SOUL - A New Day (Black Science Orchestra Mix) (Jus' Trax)
HAPPY MONDAYS - Stinkin Thinkin (Farley & Heller Mix) (Elektra)
SWAG - Version 5 (JBO)
FIRE ISLAND - In Your Bones (JBO)
ROACH MOTEL - Afro Sleeze (JBO)
THE AVERAGE WHITE BAND & BEN E. KING - Get It Up For Love (Ashley Beedle's Heavy Disco Edit) (Atlantic)
