Superstar DJ

by Martha Craig on January 27, 2011

Happy brings back its Vinyl Friday sessions for 2011. Our own Tom Ackroyd will be spinning his 12 inches with vim and vigour from 5.30pm (until 7.30).

Here is a little information about Tom (and the other DJ on the night);

“This week we have two incredibly exciting, cost-efficient DJs:

GREG COBB was born in a boxcar parked on a Masterton railway siding, where he was taught to play harmonica by former Lake Alice patient, “Hat Stand” Jones . In the Great Depression he pursued a career in the pioneering London music industry, waiting tables and purchasing “reefer” for spoon-playing prodigy Larry Spatula Edison. Greg currently lives and works in Wellington where he enjoys beer and real estate speculation.

TOM ACKROYD is a Cambridge-educated physicist originally hailing from Sodberry-on-Thames. As a child he was frequently beaten savagely by schoolmates over his passionate advocacy for time signatures other than 4/4. A gifted pianist, videographer and web browser, Tom is interested in a wide variety of music played by skinny guys with synthesisers. His record collection features some understandably rare Eurotrash from the early 80s.”

“rare Eurotrash from the early 80s.””

The above write-up is best viewed as SATIRE and was written by someone who MAKES STUFF UP for a living.

SO, instead of rare Eurotrash there will be Emerson Lake & Palmer and other nostalgic rubbish best kept to myself.

I may or may not wear a piano keyboard skinny tie.

And Martha, ISWYDT.

Also, Happy has a fine bar and is highly recommended as a good place to hang out.
