LateNightTales DJ report

As you may know, on the first of this month I had the pleasure of DJing at the Big Chill Bar in aid of Belle & Sebastian’s LateNightTales comp vol.2. In addition to meeting lots of nice people (including B&S’s Chris Geddes, who played an excellent selection of old reggae tunes) I got to spin a few of my own 45s.

In case you wanted to know what I played:

Holger Czukay – Cool In The Pool (EMI)
Ryan Paris – Dolce Vita Pt II (Clever/Carerre)
Hot Blood – Dracula’s Theme (Creole)
Harry Nilsson – Me And My Arrow (RCA Victor)
Cyril Stapleton and his Orchestra – Afrikaan Beat (Decca)
Richard Denton and Martin Cook – Tomorrow’s World (BBC)
Sly & The Family Stone – Family Affair (Epic)
John Barry – Theme From The Persuaders (CBS)
Rita Chao – Yummy Yummy Yummy (King)
Steely Dan – Peg (ABC)
Lalo Schifrin – Quiet Village (CTI)
Ennio Morricone – Mon Nom Est Personne (WEA)
John Scott and his Orchestra – Midweek Theme (Polydor)
Kraftwerk – Tour De France (Instrumental) (EMI)
Brigitte Bardot & Serge Gainsbourg – Bonnie and Clyde (Fontana)
Tony Camillo’s Bazuka – Dynomite Pt 1 (A&M)
France Gall – Poupee de Cire, Poupee de Son (Philips)
The Roger Webb Orchestra – Theme from Cover (Chips)
Grethe Agatz – Ekkoleg (Bocaccio Records)
Coulouce – Beau-Pere (Damoo Mauritius)
Los Diablos – Un Rayo De Sol (EMI)
Herb Alpert – African Summer (A&M)

I told Paul Glancy – who runs LateNightTales – that my band would surely make an amazing mix for the series. Yes, that’s what they all say, he replied. He did share my passion for Donald Fagen’s The Nightfly, though, so at least we were able to bond over something.

  1. Great selection. Anything that includes Cool in the Pool, Steely Dan and Theme from the Persuaders has got my vote. Let us know when the HK60s Late Night Tales hits the shops!
