C86 Special.

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE LOVED  presents C86 Special

The Canterbury Arms, Brixton, London.

7th October 21:00 - 02:30

  • A bit more info about this night:

    As the first C86 special in May was so much fun, we've decided to do it all over again. As before, we'll be playing songs from the C86-era, which we've stretched a little to include 1981, so we can play Orange Juice. There'll be nothing played from after 1989, and no soul or sixties music at all, just jangly indiepop, and lots of it! This time we'll also be hosting a C86 exhibition, featuring C86 era gig posters and flyers. Guest DJ is Matthew Rimell of Bristol's Big Pink Cake club night.

Elephant Stone.

The most fantastic "Elephant Stone" are embarking on a small tour of the UK shortly.
The band is fronted by the talented Rhish Dhir, whom I met in London when he was playing with his former band, The High Dials, he greeted me with a great big hug and a, "Thank you for coming!" A warmth that the likes of The Rolling Stones have yet to extend to me!
I would love to be able to get over to the UK for some of these dates and who knows, maybe I will?  If you are in the area of any of these venues, make the effort to get out from in front of the TV and see one of finest bands that Canada has to offer.

Please see the Retroman blog link below for dates and venues and a free download of their latest single.

A little taster of The Len Price 3.
When I first heard the Len Price 3, I loved them, the songwriting, the music, the energy, I knew they would become a long time passion for me and now with their 3rd album behind them, I haven't been dissapointed in a single track.  This kind of energy in music hasn't been seen since the days of The Jam and The Clash, in fact I think they are so good that I am flying from Sweden to the UK to see them.....again!
So, here is a gig that you shouldn't miss!
14th October, Half Moon, Putney.
