Electro And Retro At Blow Up Metro
What a tip top night at Blow Up on Saturday..
The mighty Baltic Fleet - with their walloping wall of synth sounds - like Bowie's 'Berlin' period meets Boards of Canada pumped on Red Bull.
The shiny new Silvery and those infectious high octane hurdy-gurdy anthems.
The funktastic Bongolian dishing up non stop grooveadelic delights.
And ....I even got to spin a few winners between the bands. Marvellous.
A couple of the tracks I was hoping to fire up, never quite made it - so here they are now.
I'd had 'Hard Luck (Again') lined up in my head to play but because of a momentary memory meltdown thought it was called 'Billy's Third' and fired that up by mistake. Whoops.
The Undertones - Hard Luck (Again).mp3
And this little winner was lined up for later, but it turned out to be too scratched to play. Ooops.
Albert King - Cookin' Catfish.mp3
