Deck-Out is dead… long live Deck-Out & About.
Well, perhaps that’s a bit strong. We just got bored of being in the ‘studio’ all day when it was sunny out. Instead we decided to take a walk round the corner and mither a mate of ours into picking some deck-outs for himself. The mate in question was Matt Ward (alias Deejay Kicking Pigeon), who you may well recognise as “that guy from Piccadilly Records / Wet Play”. If you happen to be unfamiliar, Wet Play is one of Manchester’s best parties, where good friends meet to soak up the fun. If you possess ears, dancing feet and like good vibes, then dude — it’s for you.
The next Wet Play takes place on Saturday 28th July, and they have none other than Tom Noble popping in for a hypno-boogie séance. Buzzin’ tackle.
For the inaugural Deck-Out & About we take a tour of the Kicking Pigeons’ natural habitats: record shop / boozer / sweaty African basement club… all the while wearing dead nice clothes (obviously).
Shameless self promo. The Red Laser BBQ poster’s good though eh? (Full disclosure: it’s one of mine, Eóin OP).
Support your local record shop folks…
Matt described this outfit as “yes, you can wear a rubgy shirt and not look a right donut”. Very true sir. His pick’s were as follows:
OK, we’re off again…
Post-Piccadilly pint in one of Manchester’s original rock ‘n’ roll watering holes… Night & Day.
Not big or clever.
Matt entitled this little ensemble “few pints after work whilst wearing a nice sweatshirt and some ace adidas”. Steezy weezy.
The Oi Polloi Wally Walk… The Unicorn Suede Strut… The Mega Cord Mooch… soz that was rubbish.
Here we are outside Q Cavern, Newton Street, the African club / bar / eatery where Wet Play currently set up shop (or rave). Not sure what Matt was on about here… giving it his best club promoter patter perhaps? “Babes, I’ll put your name down… no worries”.
What’s up Matt? Said she’s not coming?
Matt calls this collection of clobber “Classy Q Cavern Corduroy”. His picks were:
