Launch Party Report

On Friday 29th May we had a launch party for “Willow Pattern Songs” at the Kings Head Theatre Pub in Islington.  Thanks to everyone who came along, and thanks to Proper Songs who organised the whole deal.

We ate homemade Chinese egg custard tarts (courtesy of Mei Yau) and even had a cake made in our honour (courtesy of an unnamed bakery):


And this is what the Hong Kong In The 60s DJ set looked like:

  1. Orange Juice – Rip It Up

We all had a lovely time.  I’d forgotten how fun it is to DJ.
