The Sweet but Deadly collective are launching a new soul night in west London called Double Shot O' Soul.
The 50th anniversary of Tamla Motown in January has focused minds again on just how great the output of the big-hitters of the '60s soul scene was. This is never-gone-out-of-fashion music, and people always move their feet to it. And you can too, as at Double Shot you'll be hearing the best in Tamla Motown, Stax Records, club soul, & girl group songs from the period, all off original vinyl 45s. Your wax spinners on the opening night, Friday June the 5th, will be Smart Phil & Mickee.
The venue The Blagclub comes highly recommended, for it is a bijou Notting Hill bar above the bustling streets that has something of an updated Soho-gin-joint vibe to it.
