  • Hf&s this thursday (oct 2nd)

    Hot, Funky & Sweaty, Thursday Oct 02
    Salmon & Compasses, cnr of Chapel Market & Penton St, Angel. London N1. 8-2am, free.



    Straight outta Southend, HF&S are proud to present the first ever gig for Reverend Cleatus & The Soul Saviours. Don’t confuse that with thinking that these guys are green though. Not only are the majority of Rev Cleatus culled from the allmighty Longo AllStars, but they’ve got a BIG sound with a heavy hammond and horn section competing for the full attention of your funkifikation! (thankyou, Disco Stu) I’m listening to the sound clips on their website right now – something I recommend you all do right this second to conclude that it’s a no brainer no to miss this! http://www.longoallstars.co.uk/

    Complimenting these Essex boys is our very own Si Cheeba, veteran funk meister, guaranteed to elicit the boogaloo out of you. Si is pretty much a unofficial resident at HF&S, having performed many a fine impromptu mini-set in the past, so it’s about time he got full credit for his fine skills and this Thursday you will witness all yourself, the power of funk – yes Lord! I’m just hoping the Rev don’t play in them nun outfits they appear to by partial to...

    DonÂ’t forget HF&S is still free. There simply isnÂ’t another funk event with all this for nowt cash anywhere. Except maybe Edinburgh, but they eat deep fried Mars bars innit.

        Confusing Scotland as a whole I'd say!

                Well I'll be supplying lots of "specialist interest" material in my sonic orgy of dirty funk and titty shaking records...

                He,he,he (he said titty)

                Woah, steady on.

                  If you've seen the pics of Rev.Cleatus in nun's habits, you may start to get the drift...

                      ok so yet again, friday morning I'm nursing a hang over.  These nights do seem to be going from strength to strength.  Nice band.  I'm looking forwards to them releasing a record.  Nice to speak to some of you again. And most of all great fun shakin my butt on the dancefloor.

                            band were excellent - six of them: drums, bass, guitar, trumpet, sax and hammond, very tight, except for the guitarist forgetting when to end the songs, and great sound. definitely worth catching if they play again

                              I was very pleased with last night&#39;s HFS. I personally think that Rev Cleatus had the best sound yet, and they didn&#39;t even have a desk or any mics&#33; We had one mic in the bar that we plugged into the mixer direct for the horns and for some reason it would only come out of the small eon we use for a monitor. But that turned out fine because those horns would&#39;ve been too loud if they came through the entire PA. Maybe the drums could&#39;ve been boosted a little with an extra mic, but all in all, the clarity was very good indeed - I could hear everyone play very clearly and still talk to someone without straining - perfect levels in my book&#33; The band were both rough around the edges and extremely tight in places. This is because five of them have been together for five years as the Longo AllStars. When the other two, sax and hammond, joined up, I guess they felt a revamp was needed. The hammonf guy had only rehearsed with them one time previous to their debut last night, so he&#39;s pretty darn good in my book&#33;

                              Turnout was also very good, considering I had almost zero promotion going on... Folk seem to be coming around to the idea of live funk on a regular basis there and have begun to call the Salmon to see what&#39;s happening on a Thursday. I think we turned a few heads last night too, so they&#39;ll be a few more tongues wagging around town.

                              The students are probably back in London now, and there&#39;s some halls of residence nearby. Our new flyers will be ready by next Friday I think, got a great deal thanks to Fryer, who also designed the back - we&#39;re using the same front image for now... A friend of mine runs a music press company and she&#39;s gonna get on the case with HFS - get some previews for the bands as well as proper listings etc, so we should be getting bigger and better from here on in.

                              Big thanks to the band, if they&#39;re reading here, and also to Si Cheeba, who was a blast to spin with. And props to Sermad and Bongolia, who have an unblemished 100% attendance record&#33; Gold stars all round&#33;
