Mick Rolf, "Alreet Summer Boys!" Mixtape.
Well, another installment of our Local Mixes series kicks off the weekend in some style with a wonderous bag of tunes, crafted together in no slack fashion by Newcastles very own Mick Rolfe. Anyone who's been even fleetingly involved with the Newcastle club or music scene will undoubtably have stumbled across Mick in one capacity or another in the last 7 or 8 years or so. Weather it be his solo acoustic shows or with various bands or even manning the Technics in one of a dozen or so pubs and nightclubs round the city.
Mick has, after more months of nagging than I care to remember, managed to momentarilly pull his finger out and rustle up this brilliant bag of downtempo goodness to complement the fine weather we're enjoying. The perfect excuse to crack open a cold beer, fire up the bar-b and top up your Vitamin C.
Mick plays as part of The Last Waltz DJ's, you can check more info on them here on their Facebook profile and hear music made by them on their Myspace page here.
You can also catch the Last Waltz lads taking over our favourite Newcastle boozer The Forth all day this Sunday from 3 PM till midnight. Expect the unexpected.
