The Return Of Plastic People

I saw this week that FWD>> is restarting at Plastic People on Thursdays. It’s a welcome return, seeing as it’s probably the venue that I’ve had most good times in, barring probably the Hacienda and possibly Heaven. But it’s Sgt Pokes’ night tomorrow that I’m most likely to attend first, seeing as I’m still smarting from not making Benji B’s Deviation this month. Pokes’ Pop Up Party has Kode9, Loefah, whose Swamp81 label is doing quite a lot at the moment, Oneman (you only need one Oneman, garagistas), Bok Bok (another one with an on-fire label, in his case Night Slugs: little boomkat shaped clip of the new Jam City release here) Braiden and Pokes providing running commentary and good jokes. I’ve heard that the DJ booth has changed location (either to the centre of the back room, or at the back of the room, depending on who you listen to) but there’s no word on if Winston will be on the door. Any idea if Plastic’s Winston is the same Winston named in various Soul II Soul recordings as the doorman at the Africa Centre?
