For anyone who hasn't been before the Ditch bar is at 145 Shoreditch High St. We'll be on the ground floor this month. Liverpool St station is a 6-8 minute walk away and buses 149, 242, 8, 35, 47, 48 & 26 all run quite close (some stop outside).

Hope to see a few SSers later.

Merry Christmas!

I'll be there tonight Paul, all things being equal.

I'm even giving up going to my employer's Christmas party for the staff. That's a big loss, lol.

Can I inundate you all with requests? Preferably for stacks of 70s tracks.

I was planning on going tonight after my works Xmas do, that was until the wife pointed out that it's my sons school christmas play tonight.

I really must buy myself one of those annual planners you get on office walls. :thumbsup:

Hope you all have a great evening.

Hopefully I will be working back in London for a few months some time early/mid 2007. The best bit is I can get along to another couple of SITCs!! How great is that.

Have a great time tonight guys.

For some peculiar reason, I don't associate you with 70s sounds Dave, but don't forget You Satisfy My Needs by Big Dee Irwin please.

Mr Irwin is in my box mate.

possibly the reason you don't associate me with 70s Geoff is because I leave them where they belong.............indoors laugh.gif in my humble opinion of course :thumbsup:

Yes mate. Thanks to the incredibly wonderful Kirsty I now have a record player.

Hope everyone enjoyed themselves last night.

:shades:

yes mate, the dozen or so of us who turned up (a dozen including those of us playing the records) enjoyed it I think, but it's a bit of a waste of time putting on a mid-week night in London now as people just aren't interested. Thanks to those who came though - it was a bit like the mythical 'back to the underground with a few people playing records in the back room in a pub' type event really

so I guess so I shouldn't complain, except it was in a smart shoreditch bar. I guess we'll keep plugging on until they kick us out (and to be fair, they haven't shown any signs of doing that)... have a swine of a hangover this morning and all - I blame that Tyler :angry:

Shame there wasn't a bigger turnout, but I enjoyed it. Great music played, even if I didn't hear Big Dee. Not to worry, there is always next year.

As always I ask if playlists can be posted?

Only downside was an appalling journey home, trains replaced by buses, but no information or staff to help at Liverpool Street, reduced to wondering up and down the station to find out what was happening.

Certainly the way to get people out of their cars, lol. Excuse the rant.

To be honest Dave I don't remember hearing it and I did listen out for it. However knowing me, just missed it I guess. Do put up your playlist please as I enjoyed your set, but as usual didn't recognise many of them.

Thanks for putting up your one Martin, didn't know you had the Liz Verdi track, that's one I've liked for ages.

Also like to say it was nice to meet Soul Sourcer Marissa.
