After a little August break and little trips to Eltham and London Fields, we’re back within the familiar confines of the Forest Tavern, E7 for our regular afternoon of selling, buying and swapping records this Saturday. This month, aside from the usual crew of sellers we’ve come to love as much as our own, it gives us great pleasure to have Russell Gutter Snypes AKA DJ Sigher join us. Russ will spinning some of his favourite soul choices on the communal decks and will maybe have a few nuggets to trade and sell too. Check out a little introductory video to the man himself below (it’s good, honest… otherwise we wouldn’t have included it!). Fancy getting involved? Well for those of you on the dreaded Facebook, here’s a link. You’ll need to leave your house though to buy the records!
THIS MONTH’S FIRST LISTEN
Between 12pm and 1pm, we’ll also be previewing a very tasty new jazz album on the house system. It’s by a new band called Collocutor and it’s already received major props from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Patrick Forge, Dom Servini and Matthew Halsall. It’s available from October 6th on vinyl via On The Corner Records and on Saturday, the Tavern will be one of the only places you can hear the album in full prior to its full release. In the meantime, you can hear a snippet of one of our favourite tracks ‘Agama’ below.
BUT I LIVE IN SOUTH LONDON!
That’s OK, we still love you and that’s exactly why we will be doing a second Eltham Dig at the Eltham GPO sometime in October. We need to get a few of our ducks back in a row for that one so keep your eyes peeled for further info nearer the time. We’re always keen on meeting new sellers and buyers who might be situated in that neck of the woods, so please feel free to point them in our direction and if you wish, spread the word about our little initiative. There might even be a pint in it for you!
Want to sell or trade? Get in touch!
Dig A Little at Forest Tavern, 173 Forest Lane, London E7 9BB… 12pm-6pm
