Mark who runs Cooking Up A Quiet Storm is celebrating the blog's first birthday. He asked all the contributors to suggest one record that they'd take to a party in the basement of a dingy pub, sticky carpets worn out from dancing. The result is two mixes. My choice is on Part Two which you can play below. It's a proper party mix, ready to rock the pub, starting with Grace Jones and then taking in Soulson, The Last Poets, Afrika Bambaataa, New Order, Discodeine, Hercules and Love Affair, The Only Ones, The Cramps, Lemon Interrupt, James Brown, Nat King Cole and The Trashcan Sinatras. Just what you need for Friday night. Clear a space, move the furniture back towards the walls, crank it up, off you go.
