I only came across this night while looking through the events guide here on Friday. The location was ideal for me, a simple train journey into Moorgate. Quite a posh bar, I did wonder if the two bouncers in their suits would let me in. The music was in the basement, a nice bar, good sound system and a decent dance floor. Musically there was an emphasis on the 70s, and very good they were. I did suggest to Tomas McGrath that he should include some of his set when he's playing at the 100 Club, he wasn't so sure but I'd say give it a go, just the odd one so as not to frighten sixties only people too much. I would say the majority of records played weren't known by me but there were quite a few I did know, e.g. Reality, You Can Win, The Price, He Left You Standing There, Kellee Patterson's version of I'm Gonna Love You A Little Bit More, and a version of The Bottle, not Gil Scott-Heron, more a Latin feel to it.

It was quiet at the start but began to fill up with a mainly younger crowd, many of whom are regulars at the 100 Club allnighters. I  had to leave at 11 as I needed to get home because I've got quite a lot on today, a shame because the music was good. Well done to James and Tomas, I hope this continues in this venue.

With under a week to go we are very much looking forward to hosting our friend and esteemed fellow collector Ian Wright.

A taste maker within Soul recording collecting circles, Ian is a pioneer of the Deep Funk genre - pushing Funk, Funky Soul and Disco through his various compilations (see Sister Funk and Soul Spectrum) and guest spots.

Just a few of the records he helped to break include Philip Wright 'Keep Her Happy', Barbara King 'What I Did In the Street' and Salt 'Hung Up'.
