The third Friday of every month Gary, Lucienne and Danny, plus special guests, play the finest northern soul, mod, Motown, vintage R&B, Two Tone ska and rocksteady, all on vinyl.

Now in our 8th year.


Making a very welcome return to the Crawdaddy! decks this month is total gent and top DJ about town Ian Jackson (Breaking Point).

A DJ on the mod and northern soul scene since 1984, Ian played at clubs such as the Phoenix with Toski, & the Sols Arms. He DJed at mod rallies with Tony Class for years, until he joined legendary club night Blow Up in 1994.

He now runs successful London club night Breaking Point and is a regular on the Crawdaddy! dancefloor. Expect an hour of floorfilling gems.

AND IN THE BACK BAR....

Also on the bill tonight is mod author Dave Dry, who will be talking about and signing copies of his latest book My Generation.

Focusing on the mid 60s, My Generation is Dave’s hilarious memoir of his days as an original mod at the cutting edge of both fashion and scooters.

The book is published on 6 October by http://suavecollective.co.uk/ with a foreward by Paul 'Smiler' Anderson.

Haha, no need, Laird, I'd have pulled the trigger on it even without your input as I'd spotted those jackets before you posted. No harm done bar the ballache of sorting out the return!

Ah'm worried noo Doc.


Did the jaiket fit ye or no?

My neighbour took mine in yesterday and dropped it in to me this morning. Quickly threw it on me before going to work. Short answer is no, I think it's just too short, but will confirm once I've had a proper ponce about in it later

Sorry to hear that, doc, internet-buying is almost always a gamble, especially with jackets, coats and shoes, but for some bargains you just have to run the risk.

Not to worry, Sidney, isn't the first time I've had to return something. As you say, it's always a risk, but it was worth taking a punt. Frustratingly, it was a nice fit in the body, but arms and body length were just too short. Ah well, we move on!

Oh, don't get me wrong, GS. I've about 6 pairs of Chelseas, and a pair of Bass loafers (least comfortable shoes... EVER! ;D)
Just like to be able to "change it up" once in a while..

I like them Mike,  not necessarily my style, but I can appreciate them and can see where you're going. Look pretty good in a double breasted.

Thanks Brian, always liked the mid-late 60's look in fashion, think that's where I get it...

Yeah , I'm with Brian on this one , I remember liking those shoes when l was a kid in the late 6ts but I was too young to get them . More recently , a friend of mine wore a pair of correspondents to a wedding we were attending and I thought they looked good on him but l don't think l could carry the look off and that's before I get into the considerations I have about polishing them. . :o


No the type ay shoes ye should be wearin' tae a weddin' given the origins ay the name, surely?

Ah own a pair, but they are broon & tan - so a wee bit mair subtle lookin' when ye huv them oan.  (Easier tae polish n'aw).

I fancy that wedding guests had other distractions on their minds than the origins of the name of those shoes , LoE. . 8)
