Eighty Six in Leeds

We've got a big couple of weekends coming up, starting with this weekend when we're joined down at Jam St (Friday 7th) for Eighty Six with Jan Hammered. See below for a rundown on Jan's great work on Test Pressing and with Claremont 56.

Then the day after on Saturday (8th October) we'll be taking the train over the Pennies to play in Leeds.

We've been invited over by Andy Pye who hosts the Balearic Social Radio show to play at Joe's Bakery. Joe's Bakery (promoted by Andy and Craig) takes place monthly at Dock St Market in the Brewery Wharf area of Leeds city centre.

Dock St Market is an independent food and drink space that houses a bakery, deli, restaurant and bar with Mid Century furniture. All this takes place overlooking the River Aire.

Past guests have included Moonboots, Phil Mison the lads from Softrocks and Timm Sure and Ampo from Coyote/is it Balearic?

It looks a great venue and it's got nothing but praise from Moonboots and his partner Sarah. It's a very relaxed 5pm afternoon start moving through to a respectable 11pm finish.

If you're in Leeds or just fancy a trip over the Pennies it would be great to see you. All 3 Eighty Six/ Universal Langauage hosts (Jif, Jeffo and TC) will be playing across the evening.

Music from 5pm-11pm

Jan Hammered returns to Eighty Six

As the leaves turn a lovely shade of Red and Brown and the evening light starts to fade, it's time to welcome back Autumn and the return of Jan Hammered to play Eighty Six.

A man of many talents, Jan is the Dj partner of Balearic Mike at their Night Music and Estrellas nights. While his photographic skills grace the album covers of Mudd's Claremont 56 record label and James Holroyd's Begin project. His mixes are regularly featured on the excellent Test Pressing blog and I've compiled a few links below to get you in the mood for Friday.

Jan Hammered: Fly With Me
Jan Hammered: Wino Junko
Jan Hammered: Mystery Man

Jan's not played at Jam St since last Summer (although he's often down at Eighty Six) so it's great to have him back playing alongside his friends in the newly refurbished surroundings of Jam St cafe.

Be great to see you
Jif, Jeffo and TC

Friday 7th October 2011
Music from 8.30 till late.
