After the Big Day Out recently, as is tradition, the kids came back to ours for a nightcap, to take a load off and relive the day (and, this year, change into dry clothes: old sweatshirts for all!).
It had been such a brilliant day with so many once-in-a-lifetime musical highlights that none of us had the energy to kick up our heels – we’d already done quite enough of that, thanks. We sought a soundtrack we could close our eyes and chair-dance to, one that wouldn’t be out of place on a dark, smoky dancefloor. I was pleased as any superstar DJ to find my selection not only hit the nail on the head, but blew a mind or two along the way, if I do say so myself.
Mr Theo Parrish, we salute you.
Please find below a selection of my favourite Parrish edits for your late-night listening pleasure – perfect for recreating that Plastic People* feeling in your very own lounge room.
