For this event the reins were handed over to Rob for a 12″ Singles night. He had a great response from people offering to bring records along, and Rob put together a great playlist, which he kept secret until the night. He teased us before hand with this;
“You can expect to hear tracks from the following:
Burial, Aphex Twin, Frankie GTH, Future Sound of London, Baby Ford, Grandmaster Flash, ABC, S Express, Happy Mondays, Stone Roses, My Bloody Valentine, Yello, Kraftwerk, Orbital, New Order, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Roxy Music, The Mission, Bauhaus, DJ Shadow and (as they say) much much more! And maybe even the Thompson Twins.”
During the evening there was time for a free-play section, where those that had brough their own stuff along got to play it.
