A round-up of the vinyl I've bought over the last few months to play at Great Big Kiss, with a few highlights from recent nights thrown in for good measure. I was very pleased to finally snare a copy of Susan Shifrin's storming version of "25 Miles", and to top up my collection of northern classics with original copies of "You Didn't Say A Word" and "Breakaway". Elsewhere, there's irresistible northern joy from The Four Tempos, one of my favourite lesser known songs by The Chiffons, some foot-stomping fuzz and attitude from Lulu, and two singles snapped up for 50p apiece at a boot fair in Surrey from a guy who was selling the records he used to play when he was a DJ - "You're Ready Now" by Frankie Valli and "Back In The USA" by Chuck Berry. Nice to think that these well-loved 45s will see more active service at Great Big Kiss!

The next Great Big Kiss is on Saturday July 11th at The Phoenix, 37 Cavendish Square, London W1. More info:
