There won’t be many words to this post as we’re all quietly recovering from the after party to last night’s wonderful launch of Mini Moderns REMIX 2 at the Southbank Centre shop.
The autumn term doesn’t officially begin for another fortnight, but last night a bunch of us hit The Black Prince to plan our set list and rehearse for a great pre-term gig.

It’s all we can do not to fast forward time until next Saturday, but given that our powers don’t extend that far yet, we thought it would be good to introduce you to the acts performing at our Masters of Pop birthday gig.
