For the last few weeks, even before this whole lockdown 'bubble' had a name, Rob Heron has been a guest at House Of Stagger every Friday afternoon. We'd drink cocktails and talk about records we'd bought. This period also saw me hooking up all the things to the other things to make my office into a fairly well equipped radio studio. I also wanted to try out Mixcloud Live. So this weekend, with lockdown slipping through our fingers, we decided to try it all out and do a one-off show - Stagger & Heron's Lockdown Throwdown - where we played each other, and you, some of the records we'd bought under lockdown and hadn't had a chance to play out yet.
This is the result. We were very drunk, made some rookie mistakes (mic left on, records unfaded, volume levels jumping about etc) but I think it came out pretty well. Hell, we might even do it again some time.
