Here you can listen back to previous #Lunchtimelistens sessions...
Gavin Lucas,7 April 2017
Gavin is one half (along with David Henckel) of the driving force behind Sonic Sandwich, better known, possibly, as Burgerac, the burger detective with a now slightly abandoned blog. What is less well-known is that Gav has been spinning discs a lot longer than he's been spinning plates... For this LunchtimeListens set he delivered what he calls "Music To Grill Meat To, perfect barbecue music". When asked to further define what the heck he means he said "you know, funky-ass, booty-shaking soul with a country twang from the swamplands of the southern US of A." Don't worry if you're not about to fire up a barbecue and grill some meat. Turns out Gav's selection is pretty good Music To Eat Sandwiches To as well. http://gavinlucas.co.uk/
Jack Sellen, 31 March 2017
Jack Sellen came into our circle of joy when he introduced himself to my long-time collaborator Leo Walton, chief maestro of the Amateurism collective of DJs, and started spinning discs at Burgerac's Burgershack HQ, The Royal Oak in Marylebone. Jack's particular penchant for playing country disco and psychedelic swamp rock means his musical selections always float my boat. The fact that he also happens to be one half of DJ and remix duo The Flying Mojito Brothers – who have been dropping some TOTALLY ESSENTIAL re-edits of tracks by the likes of Warren Zevon, Steely Dan and Crosby Stills & Nash via the ever-brilliant AOR Disco blog over the last year – means you'd be crazy not to tune into this acid cowboy's frequency right about now. http://flyingmojitobros.com/
Richie MacKichan, 24 March 2017
We met Richie MacKichan backstage of the West Holts stage at Glastonbury Festival 2016 where he was running the stage's press team and generally being a Very Good Egg. Richie is editor at boutique hotel specialists Mr & Mrs Smith – which basically means he's visited record shops in more far flung locations than most. He came down to kick off the inaugural LunchtimeListens proceedings with a joyously eclectic mix of country, reggae and disco records.
