A taste of the past
Last updated at 14:48, Thursday, 03 May 2012
IT’S been a long time coming, but Barrow’s biggest underground club night finally returns this weekend – for one night only.
The special Yummy show on Saturday brings some of the popular night’s old names back together for a 20th anniversary celebration.
On Saturday April 4 1992, Eddysons Basement opened its doors for the first night of Yummy. Now, two decades later, the original DJs, the original tunes and the original no-compromise ethos is back, just down Abbey Road at Sanctuary.
The creators and hosts, Gripper and Aim, take to the decks in the upstairs main room, spinning the same mixture of New York house and garage, funky and progressive UK club grooves and breakbeat hardcore that made Yummy such a hit first time round.
Downstairs boasts a DJ combination of epic proportions – extra special guests Mikey DON, one third of pioneering UK hip-hop crew Krispy 3, and the original Yummy ‘chill out’ room pairing of Manchester soul authority Andy ‘Madhatter’ Holmes and Barrow’s very own 45 king, Funkmaster Moon, while Niko will be performing a live PA previewing selected tracks from her forthcoming new album Hate & Love.
Holding it all together will be MC Kwasi, who is set to headline at this summer’s Beat-Hearder Festival with Mr Scruff.
The night runs from 8pm to 3am, and tickets are available on the door or in advance via www.seetickets.com
l It’s bank holiday weekend, so that means there will also be a Keep On The Grass event this Sunday.
The free open air event at Barrow Park Bandstand will feature sets from residents Gripper and Aim, along with Movement DJs Kid Cagoule, Ad Bickerdike and Peter Kay, all spinning their trademark blend of soul, funk, disco, classic house, hip-hop, breaks, beats and boogie.
Music gets under way from noon and runs into the early evening.
