Brilliant new club night next month

I have been meaning to put this up for ages. I am guest DJing in Bolton on 25th March at the Balmoral Hotel at this cool new night called COPESETIC. It will be a great night of vintage sounds - Ska, Soul, RnB and Rocksteady in a friendly venue with cheap booze - what more could you possibly ask for? If you live in the locale or fancy a trip away it would be great to see you there.
Check out the marvellous web site for more details:
Or mosey on over to the Copesetic blog:
Jak Ripley who co-presented the first of my shows on Chinese Jamaican Reggae will be DJing alongside Perry and Rob. Trust me these guys have some phenomenal 45s! Gonna be a scorcher!

All they wanna do is fight & argue..

I just wanna dance to ska & rocksteady..

Perhaps the idiots who get soused and start trouble do so because of the emptyness and unfulfillingness of their lives. Perhaps our society dictates what to wear, listen to, eat, where to go and how to act. Men (for it mostly is men) are expected to be wealthy, verile, sophisticated, humourous, well travelled etc. Most of us do not fit that profile, but some are happy because they have other things of interest and their lives do not depend on what the advertising agencies, "lifestyle" gurus and politicians dictate. The binge drinking culture that has develpoed is obviously a problem, with causes too complex and deep rooted to discuss in what is a light hearted blog. The unfortunate side of people taking flight from the anxiety of modern life in an over developed consumerist society is drunkenness. When people get drunk and lack love and positiveness in their hearts, violence tends to bubble up. My experience is that this generally occurs in mainstream pubs and clubs. A smallish event that is populated by like minded people with similar interests often has a very friendly vibe. It is much less about "pulling" and getting pixilated and more about developing musical knowledge and meeting genuine, warm, like minded people.

After Brian Kelson's SCORCHER night in Birmingham, several of us from Greater Manchester and London coverged upon our fantastic B&B in Handsworth and utilised Perry's portable Vestax to play tunes on whilst quaffing Wray & Nephews....superb!

Perhaps a similar scene may occur in Bolton, who knows???
