Blow Up 18th Birthday – London, Friday November 4th

BLOW UP 18TH BIRTHDAY PARTY & NEW MONTHLY RESIDENCY @ GINGLIK FRIDAY 4th NOVEMBER 2011 BLOW UP is 18!  Blow Up is pleased to announce that it will be taking the club to other parts of London outside the West End , starting this Autumn with a new monthly residency at Ginglik in Shepherd’s Bush , launching on Friday 4th November for Blow Up’s 18th Birthday . Blow Up’s playlist is far from being defined by the Brit Pop genre it helped kick-start back 18 years ago in 1993 : alongside live bands (early on in the night) expect to hear Blow Up DJs Paul Tunkin, Ian Jackson (and the occasional guest) spinning 60’s Soul, Beat, Garage, Funk, Ska, Soundtracks, Electronica, Library Music colliding with British Pop, Glam, Indie-Pop and New-Wave. A celebration from the other side of Pop where the Kinks, Bowie, Blur share the dancefloor with current newcomers Pete & The Pirates, British Sea Power and Metronomy, all alongside Blow Up’s trademark mix of Swinging Soundtracks & TV Themes (The Italian Job to Barbarella), 60s Exotica & Electronica (Jean-Jacques Perry), 60s Club Soul (Motown, Stax etc.), Northern Soul, Beat, Mod Jazz, French Pop (Jacques Dutronc, Bridget Bardot) and New Wave (XTC, Wire). Live guests Dave Woodcock & The Splinters + The Little Bleeders . Dave Woodcock & The Splinters return to Blow Up after their show in September and will be heading up from the town of outstanding talent Southend-On-Sea. Expect great songs delivered in Dave’s own inimitable Essex style. Best described as the closest thing to a knees-up with Chas’N’Dave and The Kinks’ Ray Davies! The Little Bleeders are a four piece, proto-punk garage band; Rock and roll waifs and strays who came together in the pursuit of music with blood pumping through its veins. Classic influences from The Stooges, The Kinks, The Beatles, The Stones, Surf, 60’s Garage Rock, Delta Blues, Scott Walker. Please note: live guests will be on early.
