WHAT TO SAY ABOUT ‘THE SPIDERS WEB 12TH ANNIVERSARY’ ?

WELL HERE GOES …….WITHOUT ANY HYPERBOLE IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE CRACKER OF A DAY ….IT ONLY SEEMED FIVE MINUTES FROM ARRIVING TO BEING EJECTED (NICLEY) BY THE HARD-WORKING ALE OPERATIVES…HATS OFF CHAPS !!!

 THE DAY FLEW PAST SO QUICKLY IT’S HARD TO RECALL EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED !

EVERYONE WAS UP FOR IT FROM THE WORD GO…AND WHAT AN ACE CROWD….MANY FRIENDS WERE THERE YET ALSO LOADS OF FANTASTIC FOLKS WE’D NEVER MET BEFORE YET HOPE TO SEE AGAIN REAL SOON !

IT ALL KICKED OFF AT 3 PM . CARLOS AND MYSELF ARRIVED AT AROUND 4.15 AFTER BEING HELD UP ( BUT NOT BY MEXICAN BANDITS)
WE WERE MET BY GEORGE WALLACE AND THE FABULOUS MAUREEN !

  GEORGE SAID PLAY A FEW WHEN YOUR READY…WELL I DUNNA NEED ASKING TWICE ..SO AFTER I’D SET OUT MY SALES STORE ..I HEADED FOR THE DECKS ! THE MIGHTY MICK H ARRIVED NOT LONG AFTER AND BETWEEN MICK MYSELF AND GEORGE FRASER AND SHUG WE SET THE FOUNDATIONS FOR WHAT WAS TO BE A DAY OF GROOVIN .. CHATTING ..LAUGHING AND SOAKING UP SURELY SOME OF THE BEST RARE SOUL VIBES ON OFFER TODAY ( RESPECT TO ALL OTHER EVENTS DJs & PROMOTERS AND YEAH I’M A WEE BIT BIASED ON THIS ONE BUT BELIEVE ME IT WAS THAT BLOODY GOOD AND I WAS SO HAPPY TO BE A PART OF THIS SPECIAL DAY )

VENUE ….IF YOU’VE NEVER BEEN TO ‘THE SPIDERS WEB’ IT’S A FANTASTICALLY GROOVEY SUBTERRANEAN CELLAR CLUB SIXTIES STYLEE ( VERY TWISTED WHEEL ) WITH LOADS OF NOOKS N CRANNIES AND A FEW CROOKS N NANNIES . SMALL DANCE FLOOR BUT BOY WAS IT BUSY !

 GET YERSELVES DOWN TO THE WEB ..FOR ANY OF THE SPIDERS WEB S.C EVENTS …YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED !!!! THE CLUB IS AN EXPERIENCE IN ITSELF BUT WITH A FAB GEAR N GROOVEY RARE-SOUL SOUND-TRACK …THEN YOUR ONTO A WINNER !!!

MUSIC…..THE DAY MUSICALLY WAS JUST A JOY..WITH EVERYONE BEING AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAME ! MICK H PLAYED SOME BLINDING TUNES AS DID KENNY AND MARTYN AND SO IT SEEMS UNFAIR TO SINGLE ANYONE OUT BUT FOR ME I PERSONALLY LOVED ANDY DENNISONS ‘SET AND THE QUALITY GRITTY R&B HEAVEN THAT WAS DISPENSED BY RODDY BRASS !

QUALITY ALL THE WAY FROM MICK…INC LOUIS PAUL (SEE PLAYLISTS ON www.soulscotland.co.uk )

  THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE TUNES WERE HOT HOT HOT AND I PERSONALLY SWEATED BUCKETS ON THE DANCE-FLOOR…THE WALLS WERE DRIPPING TOO…HOT N SWEATY WITH A PUMPIMG SOUNTRACK…JUST HOW I LIKE IT……………YET COOLNESS ITSELF !!!
 I HONESTLY HAVEN’T HAD SO MUCH FUN FOR A LONG TIME !
  EVERYONE I SPOKE WITH SEEMED TO BE GRINNING , JUST A GREAT VIBE TO THE WHOLE DAY !

 KEITH & SANDRA MONEY BROUGHT THEIR OWN ‘PACKED LUNCH’ HOW ORGANISED IS THAT ? I HAD TO CHUCKLE AND PROMISED NOT TO MENTION IT BUT ..SANDRA WE HAVE PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE !!!!!!

WHEN NOT CHATTING OR PLAYING I WAS ‘OUT ON THE FLOOR’ TOP TOP DAY AND A BIG THANKYOU TO ALL INVOLVED !

HOPE TO BE BACK SOON !!!!!!!!!
