Soul Buggin' gets all wordy...

So here we are! Welcome to the first Soul Buggin' blog. It was only a matter of time really I guess wasn't it? We've got lots to say and often spend many an hour grumbling to ourselves about important topics such as the price of sausage rolls, what age you should really stop looking at first year students and why the hell someone has re-edited yet another bloody Jacko record. As fellow Soul Buggers Wrighty and Mark are busy old chaps these days I thought what better time to launch my literacy skills upon the unsuspecting world and start our first Soul Buggin' blog.

Of course, some could argue this is just another excuse to spam up the internet with shameless promotion for our monthly night down at the Moog bar here in Nottingham (which of course it is - please see below for details on our next night!) but thats not entirely true. We'll be using this page over the following months to write about all kinds of things that float our boats. Whether it be a detailed analysis of the forthcoming new Predator film, the state of affairs regarding Masterchef Greg Wallace's pulsating belly, great parties put on by our friends around the country or quite simply music that we feel needs shouting from the rooftops.

Please pop in from time to time to see what we're up to - they'll be something for everyone with new mixtapes galore, party information and general waffle to read while your counting down the minutes until the next episode of Emmerdale starts.

Love and hugs as always


After the storming success of the first FYE Midlands party back in February we thought, hell lets do one more before the years out and here it is.

So what is FYE? It began in the early noughties in london as a party for collective music heads to come together, play music and generally get right on it. Constantly changing venue (apart from a year long residency in conjunction with Birmingham's "Leftfoot at The Medicine Bar) it was very rarely in the same place twice. What separated it from other nights was the fact that anyone could play. It didn't matter if you were a veteran DJ with years of experience under your belt or someone who simply had a few CDs at home who was really passionate. This was backed up by a music policy of quite simply 'no music policy'. People were allowed to play whatever they wanted and with each DJ set lasting no more that 30 minutes the music throughout the night was constantly changing, keeping the party fresh and exciting.

Presented by the Soul Buggin' trio this promises to be something quite special. See you all on the 30th!
