#LunchtimeListens 004: Barny Read

Barny Read is co-proprietor (along with Becky Nolan) of The Peanut Vendor, a mid-century modern treasure trove that doubles up as a delightful coffee shop on the south side of Victoria Park in Hackney. Of all my friends, Barny's genre-spanning record collection is the one I eye enviously more than any other. His groaning shelves sport hundreds of LPs spanning Jazz, Soul, Disco, Reggae, Rock, Hip Hop, Latin, Balearic and pretty much every uncategorisable, non-mainstream genre imaginable. In much the same way that he stocks his wonderful shop full of a seemingly effortlessly curated range of homewares and furniture that you didn't even know you absolutely have to fill your home with, so Barny has a similar knack for playing broadly eclectic, laidback DJ sets full of tracks that you can't get enough of. Bingo!
