Damnably All Dayer


Our friend George over at Damnably is putting on an awesome all dayer at the Brixton Windmill on Sunday 3rd July. We've been fortunate enough to be asked to DJ on the day (expect lots of riffs) and choose a band to add to the bill. Naturally we went with Crushing Blows, a brilliant band from the Midlands who never fail to impress us. All the info is below and I think I should point out that there's a FREE BBQ.
