The KLF care home: happy housing for old ravers – or just another prank? 29/11/2023

Well I’ll be taking my decks with me, so who else is up for some care home ravercise?

The KLF care home: happy housing for old ravers – or just another prank? They have destroyed their back catalogue, burned £1m in cash and fired a machine gun at the Brit awards – but the duo’s move into nursing may be their most unexpected yet

As the summer draws to a close I'm thinking of all the great parties we've had recently and over the last year. A 90s revival, 40th birthday in Menna Eleri Evans garden, New Year in Louise Bourns conservatory, a surprise garden party 50th for RobTiff Turner (smashin out the Stevie Wonder Happy Birthday to ya), a soiree with Phillips, a Big Lunch Big Disco in the village pub with LLANSADWRN READING ROOM, a 20th wedding anniversary with Joanne Grace Walker and Walker, a house-warming for Julian Rosser & Raoul Evelyn Bhambral, and huge 50th birthday weekend for Adam Bourns at his lovely Under Starry Skies location. No wonder some of you think I'm the "best DJ ever" 😁💃🕺😅.
Got any party photos/memories you'd like to share?

OK, a slight jump in the order, but this is one of Raoul's particular favourites. And it is his birthday month, so...

Dark Matter opens with a couple of tracks from the legends Romboy and Bodzin, which set the scene for some beautiful techno and a little bit of progressive house. A journey through some of my (Jim's) deeper and darker sounds.

We've raised nearly £200 in our Set for Love Christmas Appeal!
Thank you so much for your support.

These funds will be spent on projects focused on creating sustainable futures for vulnerable children and young adults. This includes stopping child labour, getting children into education, rehabilitation centres for children who have been abused and on sustainable projects like water wells.

So it could be spent in Tanzania, where $200 would keep a child out of the quarries and into school for a year.

Or it might go to India, where just £15 would provide a family with clean, safe water for the next 10 years!

Or to the Philippines to help rehabilitate young girls who have suffered horrors at the hands of others.

We're glad to do our bit. Thank you again for your support!

We will be streaming live with Sound on Twitch. The link is below. You can watch us fine on the web, but on your phone or iPad or similar you will need to download the app first, so if that's what you're doing - get onto it! :-)

03/04/2020

Thanks for joining us again tonight folks! We had fun, hope you did too :-D
The video might have ended because of a half hour time limit we were unaware of!
There might be a couple of muted bits in the later video (Raoul is disputing copyright), so don't adjust your kit - it's probably not that.

03/04/2020

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. We hope you're well this fine Friday.
We will be grooving again tonight at 8pm. Slightly different setup this time as we will be hosting a private party, not a public one on Facebook.
Please let us know if you were planning to tune in tonight, so we can send you an invitation. :-D
