#38 – Keepers Special

The Independent Music Podcast is back after more than a year with an epic 22-track special dedicated to Anthony’s new night – Keepers.

The concept of the night is Anthony and guest DJs spinning vinyl records they wouldn’t usually play in a club, so expect the unusual, the amusing and the ‘not disco’. Gareth, amongst others, is guesting at the launch, this Tuesday, 4 December at Alibi in London.

So here is more than 90minutes of interesting music, amazingly eclectic, from the upbeat to the misery-inducing, plus the usual inane chatter than made people dislike the podcast last time around.
