HERE WE ARE!
It's Thursday and it's EPISODE 45 of THE TWO SHOT PODCAST. This week travel north to sit down with legendary DJ & author DAVE HASLAM!!
A few months ago we got a call telling us that THE CHARLATANS were doing something pretty unique. They were going to put on a takeover in NORTHWICH, which is where they have recorded many of their albums and consider it a second home. They were going to play 4 gigs over over 4 nights with a different set each night and then stream the gig all over the world. Pretty special right?
They would also have other bands play and also a very special exhibition. They asked us if we'd like to be a part of it and host two LIVE episodes with an audience for each. We were lucky enough to bag our first guest in he shape of DAVE HASLAM and then our 2nd guest came on board and that was PADDY CONSIDINE. It was going to be a busy day. Thankfully we made it work and the audience came (if you were there, then thanks for coming!!) and it was a pretty special day.
We'd been talking to Dave for just under a year about coming on so we were thrilled we could make it work for this and can't thank him enough for coming on. CHEERS DAVE !!
We begin by chatting about where he started. Moseley, Birmingham. We also get treated to the man himself reading a piece from his memoirs, SONIC YOUTH SLEPT ON MY FLOOR (good title, eh?)
You may have got down to Dave spinning tunes in the past but now here's a chance to get to know the man himself.
(Producer Griff says apologies for the sound this week. Whilst the venue was really cool, there are cosier aircraft hangars; which is why it sounds as if God himself is speaking. A few de-reverb modules were tried but it all sounded a bit digitally warpy so it was left as is. Sorry)
