Wednesday saw the first micro event organised by Splash One and Narc scribe Ewan McIntyre.
The idea for Songs From The Kitchen Sink came to me last year as a shameless excuse to indulge in twin passions of 1960's British Kitchen Sink Cinema and 1980's Fuzzy Guitar music (some early 90's shoegaze thrown in for good measure) from independent labels such as 4AD, Cherry Red, Heavenly, Creation, Factory, Rough Trade, Sarah.
However I had been too busy with other projects to put anything together then the opportunity to host an after show party for New York shambling indie poppers The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart arrived - too good to pass up.
So the first 'Kitchen Sink' event played out like this...
Fist off BIG SORRY to PopKlub who were meant to DJ but the lack of CD decks in the head of steam mean they had to pull out.
As well as myself and Ewan, Peggy and Kurt from the Pains Of Being Pure At played a few tunes. So extra big thanks to the band.
