'Dear John' August 2013

'Dear John' August 2013

Playing tracks by

Talk Talk, Japan, The Durutti Column, The Smiths, The Stranglers and more.

A change of tact for this month’s mix, in honour of an important man who suddenly passed away a few weeks ago. He was a misfit, a mentor, a cool big brother and most importantly a man of music. In particular he was in love with the knob-twiddlers and dark personalities who plied their singular vision behind the polished, superficial sheen of the 80s. So we’ve pulled together some tracks by kindred spirits of his, some of whom he introduced us to, others who we know he would have appreciated. We’ll be playing these and more at a party in celebration of his life next month, so this is a kind of test-run, for a man who never lived life as a rehearsal. All the best ‘Tinny’, you’ll be missed.
