Many thanks to everyone who came to The Smugglers Return in Worthing on Friday April 5th. A splendid time was had by all, and the experiment of streaming the event live on the Web was a great success with over 400 people listening in. I’m sure I’ll be back there again soon, along with the excellent Tom Crawford who along with his partner Heather were fabulously entertaining and accommodating hosts.
I’m next DJing in London on April 19th at Paper Dress in Curtain Road, Shoreditch, and on April 20th I’ll be in Watford DJing at a Northern Soul night at Chocolate on the High Street, opposite the great big hole in the ground that might once again be a pond by the time the event happens.
On the subject of thanking people, I’m very grateful for the amount of positive feedback shown so far for my releases on Bandcamp. The “4-14-44” EP and “Songs For A South Herts Symphony” mini-LP have regularly featured in Bandcamp’s chart of best-selling pop releases. If you haven’t investigated these recordings, you can find them here . There’ll be more material exclusively on Bandcamp throughout the year.
Physical releases of my back catalogue are slipping out of stock fast. There are no plans at the moment to re-issue any of them so once they’re gone, they’re gone! You can find them on the Acid Jazz eBay store or direct from the Acid Jazz website .
In other news, May, June and July see me back on the road with the Paul Weller band. I’m really looking forward to being reunited with Paul, the Steves, Crofty and Ben, and the shows promise to be excellent.
