SFR Soundsystem 07012012

Tonight's show seemed to go down well, I certainly enjoyed it! But then I'd enjoy sitting playing tunes for 2 hours even if nobody else was listening. Played an hour of ska covers - categorically proving that anything can be improved by ska - even a Phil Collins song can sound good with the application of ska! Also played some cracking new tunes; huge thanks to everyone who gave me suggestions & to the bands who sent me tunes to play. Enough waffle, here's the list:
