To celebrate ten years of trading, we’re throwing a party. Seeing as Charlie Chalk’s Fun Factory was fully booked and we couldn’t get hold of a magician in time, you’re going to have to settle for the hallowed halls of the Soup Kitchen basement. Entertainment-wise, expect a psychedelic smorgasbord of funk/rock/disco/balearic/house and avant-garde oddities supplied by the following disc-jockeys, charity shop lurkers and eBay magpies — Andy Votel (Finders Keepers), Bad Passion, Cherrystones, Moonboots (Aficionado), Ruf Dug (Wet Play) and Non-collective.
Although we can’t promise there’ll be slices of caterpillar cake left over for your party bag, thanks to the good fellows at Lee, Superga and Fjällräven there’ll be a raffle on the night for a chance to win some pretty exclusive gear, which may or may not include some deadstock Fjällräven G1000 jeans…
