It's Cosmic!

Old Cantabrigian, now globe-trotting mystery man and excellent DJ, all round good egg Rocco Universal (or Pat to his mates) is entrepreneur-ing in the tropics. His new ship is called the Cosmic Tiger and is looking very pretty.

I rambled on a bit myself about - what else but dusty old vinyl? It's been taken aboard and can be found here:

Cheers, Mate!

Last minute Summer Solstice Surprise fill-in at our current hang-out was full of the best of everything; music, company, good vibes and great socks. Great to see Mostyn, Dave and Pete Um propping up the bar and encouraging bad behaviour (reciprocated).

One last time

Doing it again this Friday 7th June - Pint Shop Cambridge - 6pm till close, free. Andy and I planted this little 7" record last time in the hope it would grow into a larger, more mature 12". Soon, we'll have our answer - come and find out what happened!

Note, fellow Disco Village residents "Cosmic Soup" will be migrating down south this coming Sunday evening to the big smoke (London) to ply their wares at the Shoreditch dive with the big sound; Brilliant Corners. If you're about do pop in and give them a hug!
