About the show
Playing tracks by
Benny Spellman, The Rolling Stones, Vince Taylor & His Playboys, The Saints, Booker T & The MG's and more.
I asked David and Franic of The Wave Pictures for a mix of songs that they've played in their guest DJ sets at HDIF over the years, and they quickly turned in this barn-storming, foot-stomping set of rock'n'roll, rhythm'n'blues, northern soul, garage punk, 70s soul, and loads more. From Ike And Tina Turner and Jerry Lee Lewis to Benny Spellman and The Downliners Sect, via Ann Peebles, The Saints and The Shadows, this mix aims straight for the hips and doesn't let up for a second. Turn it up loud and get on the good foot!
The Wave Pictures DJ at How Does It Feel To Be Loved? at The Phoenix, 37 Cavendish Square, London W1, on Saturday June 18th. We'll also be warming up for Belle & Sebastian's Albert Hall shows next week by playing all of "Tigermilk" over the course of the evening, and maybe some songs from "Sinister" too.
