In loving memory of Route 66 Co-Founder Ross Waddington, who took the stairway to heaven last month, Route 66 Sydney (EST. 1983) present the very first WOLF CALL. Waddington was an obsessive vinyl enthusiast and DJ (his collection mounting over seven thousand), avid gig-goer, a cultural pioneer, a wealth of inspiration and, without a doubt, the epitome of cool.
So, the White Christmas edition of WOLF CALL takes place on December 16th at GoodGod Small Club Danceteria in Sydney. Featuring:
LA MANCHA NEGRA who say what they mean and say it mean. The roughest 'n' ready South American-style garage in the land. Shake, Rattle & Roll.
ATOM BOMBS. An explosive tsunami of surf instrumentals to thud and rumble through your very being and take you on a rocky ride straight to the shores of Hawaii.
JESSE REDWING. The Beastly Blues Extraordinaire. Performing numbers like Slim Harpo's King Bee. Lured from the basement of Commons where you may find him nightly. He got rhythm, he got soul and he plays a mean Harmonica.
LOENE CARMEN (pictured above). Lady Luck herself, The Underground Queen of Sugar & Spice, and All Things Nice. Nashville mastery, tear-soaked blues noir, anthemic lullabies, psychedelic hymns and spacious folk.
FLASH & CRASH DJs (Leroi Waddington & Holiday Sidewinder) to play All American Rareities & Classics, All 45s. Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Rock 'n' Roll, Garage, Surf. Till Sunrise.
You'll find this awesomeness at GoodGod Small Club Danceteria in Sydney. This Friday 16th December. Ten bones on the door. From 8.30pm.
