EVERY RECORD PLAYED IS GIVEN AWAY
Date: Friday 23 September 21:00 - 03:00
Night: The House Clearance House Party
Every 7" single that is played is simply given away to the crowd. If you hear it and you like it, then you can have it.
"For us it's about fun and breaking down classic boundaries between DJ and audience. DJs are almost untouchable, you can't ask them for a request or even talk to them."
The original idea for the night spawned when Tim moved in with Aaron and was basically jealous of his personal vinyl collection. Not to be out done Tim quickly started buying up collections and cherry picking the killer slabs of wax and sold the unwanted records on.
Through this process Aaron & Tim soon realised that there are a lot of people who just don't know what to do with their collections.
''They may have been passed down or inherited in some way. Loads of amazing records just binned or given away, so we decided to give these unloved records a purpose and have a wicked time doing it. So The HCHP was born''.
Some record giveaway highlights were a super limited edition of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" on red vinyl and LCD Soundsystem's "Daft Punk Is Playing At My House".
With the LCD Soundsystem 7'' it was from my personal collection and worth about £40.
I really wanted to play it but had to then give it away. About 10 people were fighting for it. But one guy was wearing an LCD tee so it had to go to him. I just hope it made it home in one piece. Felt good to give it to a real fan boy of the band!
