As I’m in the habit of posting playlists after I’ve been out and about playing records at people, sometimes for their enjoyment as well as mine, here’s what was aired, in order, at the Peace show at Brighton’s Green Door Store on 7 December. Thanks to Ed Lilo – follow the man and his events on Twitter – for having me.
It’s fairly brief. But people danced. Energetically. Which was a treat.
