Lowton A busy mini-niter (till 4am ) at Lowton last nite.
Looking forward to thisone as had a smart line up, late finish and Lowton with its many rooms, places tochill and catch up is always a bit of a laugh Few words , some re-cycled quips and a disturbing lack of vinyl info follows.Lowton - things as always the same, Car park was full and as always no matter what that guy tells me when driving can never find how to get that bit around the back.In and at em.Somewhere along the line, have picked up part time job, ended up with 3 sets of flyers to dish out, ususal attempts to try and clear DMSC bulk lot, also CSC and Yorkshire Riders to give out, as distrubtion follows my travels (bar and record bit) can expect a auidence of alholic vinyl deviants at your events. (a often used and repeated quip)
Rooms:Main hall was busy most of nite, thinned out from about 1am, but what saw all went down well and floor was busy Last weeks word of dj order was out of window as two of the guests Rob T and Andy R had a long drive back ahead so timings were changed, 3 rooms meant sounds wise recollection worse than normal!!Due to curent mood had stuff like Jamica Underground rattling round head rather than 6ts covers titles. Andy Rix and Rob Thomas can be classed almost local jocks now as residents just down the road at the monkey, missed most of Rob Ts but heard went well, caught most of Andy Rixs and highlight being at long last hearing instrumental. Crying Time out and about, myself and others always class it as a DMSC sound, but strangely enough has never been played there, email for why if the mystery causes sleepless nites.
Dished out many of his big ones, fast approaching if not already classic status, Is Switch Around up there as a all-time classics yet or what???All floor filled, going down down well with the crowd. Missed a fair bit of Terry Ds due to other room wanderings, anyone fill in his latest plays??Caught half of Gingers, for David Flynn madedetermined effort to id that "catchy" track (just to say to him you know that catcgy track youre on about that catchy track....errr its gone) but nought fitted the way he described it , though he pulled out some blinders, all details were inserted into brain, but wiped out by later modern influx, Ian Cunliffe pulled out a good quality one set, Mean Miss-treater, No Good guy, Lazy , being a couple of highlights, Carl Wllingham finished nite off , with great mix of his top stuff, a couple of first hears to meand the odd revival or two.
Place was packed, as said thinned out later on ish, but main floor seemed stay busy and caught lot of all style top quality stuff Modern room - spent a fair bit of time in there, what is going on with this modern soul thing, one minute bit fed up of mid -tempo sound a like stuff, or some of that MTV flavoured mush.Then all of a sudden have a month or two of geting assualted nah slaughtered by some of best stuffheard for a long long while, not sure if a case of just catching the right djsbut tonite ...wow! most impressive spots caught were by Pete Haigh and Mark Grice (mixing skills-ouch! flawless)- partial memories of tracks were by Jamacia Underground Blaze remix - just realised got this here at home via davey dixon - love exsiting being title great stuff Secret Sounds - Baby Come Home? a three initaled thing (yeah hopeless mike, I know)and a fair lot quality sounds that scream out the need to be id'd
As said last time place seems to be on a roll, and this time was defintely rolling. Djs caught featured likes of Roger Banks, Robbo, Mark Morgan, MarkStewart, plus should imagine a lot more. With a well wide range of styles and sounds. Note to Lowton DJ debut of one of the regular yorkshire crowd Mark Stewart who have made this their homes, heard went down sizzingly i think was word. Also word of even some ska getting a airingas Barry Norman would say "and why not" Seems Pete Coulson has this room well sorted and place was kicking all the niteCarry on and this broom cupboard will need a extensionOverall - enjoyable nite, some top sounds , lot of laughshours of fun!
