For one brief hour, just this once, I’ll be playing at the Electronique monthly New Wave afternoon this Sunday 3rd September with a New Romantic set sure to impress the shoulder pads off you all.
Duran Duran, ABC, Spandau Ballet, Lene Lovich and even Blue Rondo a la Turk will be played between 4-5pm after which I will possibly be asked to leave the building by management, leaving Mark Vick & Jade to Grey to continue the regular New Wave sounds of the afternoon through to 10pm.
That’s at Harpoon Harrys 4-5pm Sunday.
