SEVENLY a celebration of the 45!

It will be 60 years to the day that Eddy Arnold’s ‘Texarkana Baby’ was released by RCA, pressed in translucent green vinyl it was the first ever 45 record released, so never shy of a celebrating anything worth celebrating we’re throwing a birthday party at The Social for the beloved 7″ record.

Djing on the night will be some of our friends who we deemed wholly holy qualified to come down and play you some of their favourite 7’s from the last 60 years.

Digging through their crates to unearth you some gems and provide back to back 3min slices of Sevenly music will be ;

EDWYN COLLINS (7″ label champion!)
EMMY THE GREAT (music sounds better with her)

YOUNG & LOST CLUB (Great label, great 7’s)

ANDY BLAKE (DISSIDENT)

(keep your ears posted on here for a Superb &  exclusive 7″ mix that Andy’s done for us, coming v. soon!)

HEAVENLY JUKEBOX ( 7evenly music)
ROUGH TRADE (They sell 7’s, they play 7’s!)

& BOB STANLEY (Vinyl guru, is it you?)

7evenly

There will also be a mini Rough Trade stall selling 7’s on which you will be able find some exclusively signed  for the early birds and in between sets there will be some Heavenly freebies to give away.

Come celebrate with us & hear some of the finest music ever cut to 7″ of vinyl, doors 7pm & its well free to get in! @ THE SOCIAL, 5 Little Portland St, W1w 7JD

Both Bob and myself managed to pick up a copy of ‘TEXARKANA BABY’ on Gemm for under $10 within minutes of finding out about the track.  I love the fact the first 45 came on translucent green vinyl which was designed to colour

reference musical genres, ahh the innocence of product marketing back in the day . . .  literally!

Until we get set up in the new office and wire up the vinyl/,p3 thing you can make do with a youtube version of Eddy Arnolds 45, which sounds better than my copy in any case.
