Shackleton Appreciation


#162

No Bristol cos of simple thing’s, i tried.


#163

just saw mordaunt post on twitter about this

anyone going simple things? not been before so quite looking forward to it


#164

I kinda want to but its like 4 days after Unsound…


#165

Considering it, but also thinking of going system the week before. Can’t justify going to both though


#166

Did anyone see him at Jazz Café in London the other week? Didn’t go this time, saw him there last year, and didn’t really think the venue was right for Shacky. Always interested to hear what his set was like though, new music etc?


#167

Does he do much UK shows? Need to see him play out still


#168

Usually at least 3 or 4 in a year. If you are a fan of his music on record, you will be blown away by seeing him live.


#169

didn’t bother with jazz cafe. last time i saw him there it was very quiet and he pretty much spent the whole set pointing at the engineer for more vol. obvs still smashed it

playing for loose lips in manc in march but it’s the day before st patricks day and already got plans down here

need to get back in touch with paul and get the big man booked in, was so close last year and all


#170

and yeah seeing him live is absolutely essential, been about 15 times now


#171

Yeah I remember Shacky getting well annoyed cos of the lighting, he was having to use his phone to see what he was doing. Pretty unprofessional from the venue to be honest.

Make that booking happen this year!


#172

i’m going to e-mail him right now


#173

He played in Bristol in October ish but i was coming back from Unsound so missed it.

Got quite close to sorting a DJ set in ryewax before i moved away, tried to do it again in Bristol but simple things had him xxxclusive for a year. Mental.


#174

Really?! As far as I’m aware this was the first time he’s ever done a DJ set:

That is mental about getting him exclusive for a year though, wonder if that costs them more, or if that’s part of all his bookings.


#175

ah would’ve loved to go to that, wish it was recorded


#176

Yeah I wish there were more recordings of Shackleton sets in general. The Fabric mix CD and the mix for Mary Anne Hobbs are both some of the best pieces of music ever. A proper journey.


#177

The fabric mix is probably one of my most favourite mixes tbh, so good


#178

bloody sorted ain’t it


#179

buzzing


#180

You booked Shackleton?


#181

yeah later this year !
