What Goes Around Comes Around

Dexter & Bolan

lf lovers of 60's music want to check out the excellent acoustics in Dingwalls' lavatories, start camping outside the club (exact location: Ongleur Club Main entrance East Yard Camden NW 18 AL London)  on June 3rd (from 10.30 p.m. onwards).

This is no ordinary gig, for the Legendary Jeff Dexter, who is on the committee of London 60s week has been lured in to play classical 60's sounds during the Sixties vintage themed evening there.

'What Goes Around Comes Around,' the karmic platitude instantly springs to mind when I think that Jeff Dexter, the eternally youthfully music promoter and manager (America etc.), who was THE most innovative D.J. and Master of Ceremonies at fabled Sixties clubs like Middle Earth, Implosion etc. will be playing the regurgitated Sixties music which people can actually dance to.

According to the event's flyer: "The ultimate Mod Rocker Frat Soul and 60’s party in town, hosted by one of the main men of the original Groovy Swingin' London Jeff Dexter's cosmic visions, 60's SHAKE'N' is an official vintage dance party hosted by the London 60's Week and Raison D'etre collective. For the occasion the venue will be fully decorated with 60’s vintage memorabilia. The night is about celebrating 1950's and 1960's music, peace and groovy London, 60’s fashion. 60’s Shake ’n’ brings 'dynamite’ party time listening and dancing to the mighty selection of classics and rare 45’s nuggets from late 50's 60's and early 70's."

Alongside Jeff Dexter who will be DJ/MC for the night, Healer Selecta, the guitar-man for the Dustaphonics and Rob Bailey aka DR Roberts will also be contributing.

Their mission for the evening is to get the guests to 'come down and get shake’n' in true 60’s style.' (I'm exhausted just thinking about it!).

The only snag is, the invitation says "No Fancy Dress", but if it is going to be a Sixties themed 'vintage dance party', then surely people will be permitted to come in uniforms of that era after digging around in their vaults.
