#LunchtimeListens 003: Gavin Lucas

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, low-slung 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.
