Happy birthday to us! Happy birthday to us! We're very happy to say that this Saturday is our fifth birthday party. Five years of dancing to northern soul, Motown, 60s girl groups and rock'n'roll! We're throwing a huge party to celebrate, and our guest DJs for the night are Kev and Linda from Manchester's Ready Steady Girls club night, who'll be playing a set of girl group favourites. Kev and Linda have DJ-ed many times for us over the years and always bring a box of delights with them to Great Big Kiss, so we're really looking forward to finding out what they have in store. Five years! I can't wait.
Admission is the usual price of £4 for members and £6 for non-members on the door, and £6 in advance. You can pick up an advance ticket here - http://www.wegottickets.com/event/333942
As usual, I've spent the month on the hunt for new vinyl gems to play at the club. Here's my pick of the bunch:
* "I've Got A Whole Lot Of Lovin'" by Joe Simon. Utterly irresistable northern soul. Take a listen here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSfZ5Uu5GQ4
* "Stop And You Will Become Aware" hy Helen Shapiro. Glorious northern soul gem, and vastly undervalued in my opinon. Listen to that one here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5a4y_b-t4w
Hope to see you on Saturday night.
