Bring Your Own Vinyl Night Friday 17th July 2015

The next Bring Your Own Vinyl Night will take place on Friday 17th July 2015 at the Queens Head Pub Mold, 8pm till late. 
The idea is that people can bring their own vinyl along on the night and then have a session on the decks playing whatever they choose from any genre or era. 
This is a great way to socialise with other individuals passionate about music and to discover new artists you didn't know existed. I will be on hand to help individuals who have not used a DJ set up before. We will again be broadcasting live on the night on Mixlr and recording the night so you can listen again at your leisure!

STRANGE COLLECTIVE ANNOUNCE DEBUT SINGLE ‘SUN’ RELEASED 28th FEBRUARY

STRANGE COLLECTIVE ANNOUNCE DEBUT SINGLE ‘SUN’ RELEASED 28th FEBRUARY
“Strange Collective sound something like how we imagine Hawkwind would do covering Thee Oh Sees, their live shows gaining a reputation of untamed thunder and energy.” Far Out Magazine
“Without ever sounding derivative, they recall the likes of White Fence‘s Tim Presley and Thee Oh Sees‘ John Dwyer while capturing their own sound. Loud, garage-y and, above all, a lot of fun they are on course to be huge in 2015.” Liverpool Echo
A freewheeling ball of guitars, drums and howled vocals careens along with no predetermined endpoint, gaining momentum as it threatens to spiral out of control: this is what a typical journey with Strange Collective feels like, made all the more thrilling for its spontaneity.
Specialising in psyched-up garage jams that feel like they've been frazzled in the San Fran sun, this shady Liverpool quartet are a fearsome package that has so far only existed in the form of their incendiary live shows. Flashes of Thee Oh Sees’ strained intensity are evident in the squalls of yelps and distortion, which is underpinned by a relentless rhythm. Strange Collective have barely even flexed their muscles so far, but what they have done is show the rippling power in their swagger.
Such a tumultuous introduction to the Liverpool music scene has been rewarded with appearances at The Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia and Liverpool Sound City, as well as high profile support slots for The Black Lips, The Warlocks, Klaus Johann Grobe, Night Beats, King Khan & The Shrines, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Sean Lennon and the Silver Apples amongst others
Their first recorded statement – ‘Sun’ – which will be released on the anniversary of their first show, represents a tamed version of the band’s explosive energy, strutting along with controlled menace. It stalks through the shadows on an irresistible bass groove, then blasting open in prickly guitars and throat-shredding vocals at the chorus. Like Black Lips played simultaneously at half speed and in overdrive, this track leaves us all wondering they will come up with next.

Live Dates:
26.2.15 MANCHESTER, The Roadhouse

28.2.15 LIVERPOOL, 24 Kitchen Street
