Got our train tickets and the room is booked, looking forward to seeing my friends at the Canal Tavern and of course some good music. Missed the last one so really up for this.

Great! - It's a bit earlier in the year than normal, so a FOUR MONTH WAIT if you miss this one.

Dave Thorley has picked up some vinyl gems on his recent trips to the US, Chalky is a Boomerang-deck virgin who splashes new passion with his spot, and Arthur has been receiving strange new parcels that groan & ache for a Boomerang play  

...all in all, the excitement of what will be played has been building.


I am starting to get reservations for vinyl sales table space, so please message me or post here to reserve.  (and always feel free to bring sales boxes along, even if you don't need the dedicated table & bum space).

A nice evening again at Boomerang with some good music played, loads of tracks new to me, always good to hear new stuff. Thanks to Arthur for playing my request, plus a couple of others he knows I like, especially Dynamite, he knows the reason I like that one.


Not so many people in unfortunately, but as there are so many soul nights on that isn't really surprising. Good to see friends there. Now looking forward to the alldayer in August.
