Sounds of Eighty Six, Volume 12 with Martin Brew

For this edition of the podcast we are joined in the basement by Martin Brew aka J-Walk.

We're so pleased that Martin has started releasing music again and we were honoured to host his first J-Walk live gig for over a decade down at Eighty Six earlier this year.

There was a definate holiday mood in the studio tonight as Jif and TC handed the middle section of the show over to Martin to give you an hour of  choices from his collection.  We met up again the night after to see Paqua play live at their album launch party hosted at Aficionado and it was a fantastic night. Look out for their excellent LP on Claremont 56 and new tracks from Nautic alongside new releases on International Feel by Jose Padilla and a new one on Is it Balearic? by Farbror Resande Mac.  We'd like wish Jif and the family and good trip to the beaches of Portugal.  We'll be back in two weeks'.

Sounds of Eighty Six, Volume 9

Welcome back! Firstly, apologies as it's been a month since we could make it down to the studio. Many, many thanks to all those who came along to Eighty Six at the Beagle. It was the first time we've put on an event with live bands and it really was a great day out.

We kicked off with J-Walk, playing their first live gig together for 11 years' and sounding fantastic. Followed up by Shawn Lee, who was amazing and seeing him play 'San Diego', 'Happiness' and 'Wichita Lineman' is something that will live long in the memory.  However, it really wouldn't have happened without the hard work and vision of Jeff. He played a blinder, sorting it all out and working alongside Duncan and the team at the Beagle to make it our best Eighty Six yet.

Tonight's show was brought to you by Jif and TC. Look out for new music from Max Essa on the ever reliable Aficionado record label. Volume 2 of Mark Barrott's Sketches From An Island project and a track from the new Blasé EP. We've also got some summer favourites from deep in our record bags.

Enjoy the show and we promise not to leave it so long next time!

Eighty Six & The Beagle Present Shawn Lee (Live) & J-Walk (Live)


This Bank Holiday Sunday we'll be returning to The Beagle in Chorlton where we've a great day of music planned. Eighty Six will be hosting an afternoon of music in the bar and we'll be joined in the early evening by live performances from two of our favourite artists. 

Shawn Lee: Shawn is an amazing musician and we love all his work from his latest Electric Peanut Butter Company, his collaborations with AM, his stint alongside the Superimposers and his Ping Pong Orchestra album to name but a few. Shawn is taking time out from playing with Kelis in her backing band to perform this one off show with us.   

We've also manager to persuade Martin Brew to perform as J-Walk for the first time in a long, long time. Martin's second album 'Off-Beat' is out soon on the Wonderful Sound label. The time it took the Stone Roses to release their second album is nothing compared to the 12 years it's taken Martin but believe us it's going to be well worth the wait!


Be great to see you this Sunday.

Back in Chorlton on Easter Sunday

It's our first party of 2014 back on home turf and what better place to do it than at one of our favourite juicers, The Beagle.

Our great mates from Leeds, Joe & Craig will be joining us. Not content with running the finest bar in Leeds, they're also great DJs too and we're really pleased and proud to have them over. They've put up with us for long enough over their way so it's about time we returned the favour.

Joe and Craig were last in Manchester following Justin Robertson at The Electrik's End of Year Riot where they played an absolute blinder. They don't just play records either, they also make their own in their Joe's Bakery Band. We're in for a right treat.




As always this event will be free entry, starting from 4pm and The Beagle will have their full fantastic Mexican menu available.

This is going to be a cracker.

Eighty Six out and about over Easter

There's only a few weeks left until Easter so we thought it's about time we let you know what we've got planned!

We're very pleased to inform you that we've got two events over the Easter weekend, not only that but it's a bit of an Outlaw's Yacht Club double header. Our regular monthly Friday over in Leeds falls on Good Friday, we're honoured to have Martin Brew making the short trip over the Pennines with us and we'll be joined there by our good friend Kristan Caryl as well.

On Easter Sunday Joe and Craig from Outlaw's are making the reverse journey to join us at The Beagle in Chorlton for our first Manchester event of the year. As well as running the best bar in Leeds, Joe and Craig also run the monthly Joe's Bakery night there. Here's a mix the guys did a couple of months ago for Balearic Social Radio:


Both should be great nights so if you're around on either side of the pennines please pop in to see us.
