How does it feel to be loved? C86 Special

If you like a bit (well a lot) of jingly jangly indie-pop, you might want to join me and others of that ilk tonight at The Canterbury Arms in Brixton for How Does in Feel to be Loved? This month it's a C86 special - a cassette compilation issued with NME in 1986. They say:

'As this year marks the 25th anniversary of the release of the seminal C86 compilation, we thought it would be a nice idea to hold a night to celebrate the songs of the C86 era. We'll be playing a ton of classics from 1986 and 1987, as well as songs from C86 itself.

Expect to hear:

Another Sunny Day * The Bodines * The Brilliant Corners * The Close Lobsters * The Clouds * The Corn Dollies * The Farmer's Boys * The Flatmates * The F...ield Mice * The Go Betweens * The Groove Farm * The Haywains * The Hit Parade * The House Of Love * The Housemartins * James Dean Driving Experience * The Jasmine Minks * The June Brides * Kitchens Of Distinction * The Loft * McCarthy * Monochrome Set * The Motorcycle Boy * My Bloody Valentine * The Orchids * The Pooh Sticks * Primal Scream * The Sea Urchins * The Shop Assistants * The Siddeleys * Strawberry Switchblade * The Trashcan Sinatras * The Wake * The Waltones * The Wolfhounds * 14 Iced Bears

Please note: This is an indiepop special, so for one night only we won't be playing any soul or sixties stuff.

Guest DJs: Emma and Ian of Pocketbooks'.
