  1. Hi Folks Due to the bereavement of a member of the Ukrainian club the venue was being used for the wake on the night Brian and Chris had planned their latest installment of rare and underplayed sounds. Consequently the event has been rearranged and moved back by 1 week to Friday 27th October. Feedback thus far is extremely encouraging and attendance has increased. This suggests that the success of the first night wasn’t a flash-in-the-pan and that our policy of 'rare and underplayed', with the emphasis on ‘quality’, appears to be appreciated. The address is The Ukrainian Club (Association of Ukrainians) 215 Stockport Road Aston-Under-Lyne OL7 0NP You’ll undoubtedly hear a few oldies, but these will generally be of the harder-to-obtain variety and all will be guaranteed OVO. Our aim is to blend these rarer oldies with great, but less well known, 45s so that you (hopefully) have a great night and go home having heard a few tunes that are new to you or that you might not have heard spun-out in yonks. Special Guest DJs this month are Dave Slater and Geoff Buckley and you can expect some top-notch tunes from these guys. The venue is just across the road from the Shell petrol station, it’s just the right size with a capacity of around 80 and has a really nice separate chill-out/lounge area. The car park is only small, but there's plenty of parking on the residential streets behind the venue. Doors open at 7:30pm and entrance is a quite reasonable (we think) £3.00. The event finishes at midnight. Be there, be rare...or be square! Posted on behalf of Brian Lester and Chris Churm Chris Penn
  2. Ukrainian Club - Ashton Under Lyne *Date Change*

    Due to a bereavement at the club, we cannot now hold the event on 20th October (I think they're using the club for the wake). Instead we are moving the night back a week to Friday 27th - I'll post a new add when I get a few moments. Apologies for any inconvenience. Chris
  3. Sam Fletcher - I'd Think It Over

    Hi Folks, Needs must... For sale is my copy of I'd Think It Over by Sam Fletcher. VG+ graded as there are a number of hairlines from being in/out of sleeve. I do try to grade conservatively but if you disagree there's a full refund, no dramas ...

  6. THE NORTHERN LINE WARRINGTON - GUEST DJ ROD LOOKER

    Just by way of update, we have just learned that our October guest Ted Massey is undergoing a hip operation a couple of weeks before the event and, sadly, won't be able to DJ for us. In Ted's absence Moz has used his little black book and managed to obtain a corker of a guest for October in the shape of the one and only Ian Wills. Chris
  7. THE NORTHERN LINE WARRINGTON - GUEST DJ ROD LOOKER

    Hi Folks! Looking forward to the weekend already! It'll be great to see and hear Rod Looker behind the decks this Saturday and having co-promoted events with Rod in the past I can vouch for his collection, taste and ability to fill the floor and entertain you! See you there! Chris
  8. Rugby All Nighter Sept 9th 2017

    Boy do I need to get out more! There are plenty of 45s in the sets listed that I don't know. Those that I do know are top drawer! This sounds like a venue that I really need to get my sorry @rse down to. Chris
  9. Folks, It was my turn for the last spot of the night. There were some absolute belters played by Dave, Les and Chris beforehand so I really had my work cut out for me. There might be one or two that I've missed, but the order is correct. Sam Dees...
  10. Ukrainian Club - Ashton Under Lyne (Part 3)

    Wow! What a night! Thank you so very much for your support. The night does appear to be gathering momentum with hardcore 'regulars' emerging already along with plenty of travellers attending each of our 3 nights thus far. Your support is genuinely appreciated and vindicates the music policy upon which Brian and Chris insisted. The floor was receptive to all the DJs sets (thank you dancers) with special mention to Dave Hall and Les Harrison for absolutely tip-top choices (quite a few of which I hadn't heard before...but which have been added to my never-ending, when-I-win-the-lottery 'wants' list). I'm not sure if Dave and Les are planning on posting their tunes via the playlist page. I'll give them a couple of days and if they've not posted I'll try to list a selection of their spins as a taster. Thank you all once again, it's a real pleasure to DJ when you have a audience that really does want something that little bit different from the same old, same old. Until next time (Friday 20th October)...take care, and be rare. Chris
  11. Ukrainian Club - Ashton Under Lyne (Part 3)

    Hi Folks, DJ roster and times now confirmed: 8 - 9 Dave Hall 9 - 10 Chris Churm 10 - 11 Les Harrison 11 - 12 Chris Penn I feel that a good night can be expected! Be there, be rare...or be square. Kind regards Chris
  12. Ukrainian Club - Ashton Under Lyne (Part 6)

    Hi Folks Friday 8th December is the sixth event at the Ukrainian Club and the last event of 2017. Feedback surrounding the event is really positive and sticking with the stated music policy of 'rare and underplayed' has definitely struck a chord with those looking for something just that little bit different from the run-of-the mill-oldies nights. The address is The Ukrainian Club (Association of Ukrainians) 215 Stockport Road Aston-Under-Lyne OL7 0NP You will almost certainly hear a few oldies, but these will be of the harder-to-obtain, ‘quality’ variety and all will be guaranteed OVO. Blend these with what we believe are equally great, but less well known, 45s and the outcome is (hopefully) that you have a great night and go home having heard a new few tunes and a few that uou might not have heard played-out for a while. Brian Lester and Chris Churm haven’t confirmed December’s guests at the time of writing and as soon as the DJs are confirmed I’ll update this post accordingly. As usual, Chris Churm and I will be fitting in around these guests. The venue is just across the road from the Shell petrol station, it’s just the right size with a capacity of around 80 and has a really nice separate chill-out/lounge area. The car park is only small, but there's plenty of parking on the residential streets behind the venue. Doors open at 7:30pm and entrance is a quite reasonable (we think) £3.00. The event finishes at midnight. Be there, be rare...or be square! Posted on behalf of Brian Lester and Chris Churm Chris Penn
  13. Rubin you've been away kapp demo

    It clearly must have gone up as a quick trawl of SS suggests that you had a good idea of the price in June 2016 when you advertised it for sale @ £450. Perhaps the prices of Jock Mitchell 'Not A Chance In A Million' has also rocketed as it appears that y...
  14. Rubin you've been away kapp demo

    I might be wrong (I often am according to the current wife), but it would appear that the same guy asked the same question on this site on 25th February this year and received a number of responses. Has the value of this record 'gone through the roof' in...
  15. THE NORTHERN LINE WARRINGTON - GUEST DJ GIGSY

    Just a quick note to thank everyone for their support. Despite this being the holiday season attendance was good and for most of the evening the floor was busy. As ever, Gigsy did us proud with a belting spot. There's a very god reason as to why he's probably been our most 'booked' guest and that's because he's got great records and boy does he know how to spin 'em. Great spots as usual from Moz and Ben...even I managed not to b@lls it up! Hopefully you'll be able to join us on the evening of 23rd September when our guest is Mr Rod Looker! Thanks once again. Chris
