Crossfire Allnighter 11/10/08

Publicity blurb through from Ady Croasdell for the above:

Sat Oct 11th, 10pm-6am at the ISH Great Portland Street London W1 (right by the GPS tube station).Now in our sixth year the super successful London club night is back even bigger and better with an ALLNIGHTER and for the first time ever live artists in the main room and with deejays over three rooms. London's underground 60s music scene is booming and on Saturday 11 October we see the best of the Capital’s specialist 60s music clubs join forces for a massive party to celebrate both the diversity and the unity of the London 60s club scene. Get prepared for an amazing night of pure vintage retro partying of epic proportions.

To launch the new concept we gone completely overboard and booked three quality live artists. Direct from NYC, Northern Soul and Wigan Casino legend Dean Parrish, with full live band singing "I'm On My Way", "Determination", "Bricks, Broken Bottles And Sticks", ''Skate'', ''Tell her'' and more.He has been in constant demand since his show-stopping appearance at the Cleethorpes' Northern Soul Weekender and is pure dynamite live.

Karime Kendra is just starting out on her Northern Soul career. Her pedigree though is exceptional and it is her mother Ty Karim and father Kent Harris' 60s and 70s soul songs that she will perform for us with her full time band the Killer Meters. Her delivery is so uncannily like her mother's tough, expressive vocals that when she apppeared at this years' Cleethorpes, it was hard to believe that Ty was not there. She will sing 'Lighten Up Baby', 'You Really Made It Good To Me', 'Wear Your Natural' and 'You Just Don't Know' among many other great songs.

The Northern Soul DJs are representing London and the south's top Northern clubs- Roger Stewart from Bisley, James Trouble from Soul Revolution, Warren Boogaloo from Boogaloo and Gene Robertson from Solid Hitbound Soul and Ady Croasdell from the 6TS 100 Club all nighters.

The Beat room is hosted by the extraordinarily successful Mousetrap all-nighters (now in their 17th year). Speed of (Circle Records) and Dr Robert of (Le Beat Bespoke) are joined on the decks by UK special guests Spider Webb from exciting young London band the Horrors. Ben Ollins (The Cellar), Cosmic Keith (Boston Arms) and International man of mystery Carlo Sesto (Italy) all spinning their favourite Beat, Garage and Psych 45’s. All set to a backdrop of psychedelic lights and gorgeous go go girls.

If you’re planning to try the R&B room (which I’m consistently told is the best room in the building). Resident DJ and co promoter Rob Bailey from London hotspot the Mousetrap will be joined by fellow resident DJ Chris Dale and the Hard as Nails club DJ team Alan, Marcus and Andy Brazil. Our special guests include El Nino from London's infamous (Lady Luck) club spinning the hottest 50's blues boppers and sleazy R&B dancers. Expect Killer R&B/Club Soul & Ska/Reggae from Camden Stylist Alan Handscombe and scorching Ska/Reggae/Rocksteady from Jim Cox (Reggae Train).

"All the clubs involved are at the leading edge of what they do and people come from all over the country to come to their gigs. It’s a great chance for anyone who is interested in this type of music to come and check out all the clubs under one roof and see what they have to offer".

On only twice a year this is one of the most anticipated dates in the calendar make sure you stick this one in your dairy.
