As am typing it is the first day of November and am not sure if the sun has come up at all today. This what I imagine it was like in medieval times, except this one day of gloom was pretty much standard for the whole era. But I am...
Autumn Changes

Autumn Changes

Autumn is very much the avocado on toast season isn’t it? You know, hipster fave, instagrammed sunrises with mist and bountiful fruit markets and that. In reality it’s a heck of a lot of dark mornings, cold rain running down the back of your neck, massive coats and gloves and...
SEPTEMBER DISCO GO-GO

SEPTEMBER DISCO GO-GO

Hiya I played at a pop up launch for Guilty Noodle at Old Street Station last night. It was fun and it was 24 degrees outside, thus naturally a heck of a lot hotter underground and combined with fake tan blocking ones pores and a heavily sequinned kimono jumpsuit, it...
Weekend Work Workout!

Weekend Work Workout!

Hiya Have neglected to update the internet / WORLD on recent happenings because I have been somewhat distracted and / or forgetful. Not that anyone noticed tbh. Have been doing lots of gigs up and down and around this septic isle and drove a car for the first time oin...
Anna Greenwood Likes to Talk - second Podcast

Anna Greenwood Likes to Talk – second Podcast

I started a podcast the other month. Have done another. This time my guest who I like to talk to is the perma-effervescent John Sizzle. John is a dj, performer, venue owner and all round trannie superstar. He is most importantly, massively ace. We have a chat about all manner...
Hotter than July

Hotter than July

Although we’re only on the second day of the month as I type, many things can be hotter than this July. A cup of tea left out for a couple of hours, a faulty boiler, my freezing cold heart… God I always harp on about the weather. ‘Tis fundamental to...
Flaming June

Flaming June

In the metropolis, June so far has been nothing like flaming. Flaming MISERABLE maybe, but closer to February weather wise than the sunshine smacked ideal we have in mind when we step into summer. However, it’s only three days young so perhaps one should lay off with the hating. Instead,...
Speed Duetting - I AM CILLA!

Speed Duetting – I AM CILLA!

I am quite excited. Nothing new as am somewhat of an overexcitable soul but, I will be hosting Speed Duetting at Lucky Voice, Islington, Wednesday 15th June. It’s speed dating, with a karaoke flavour. This means I am essentially Cilla Black. This thrills me immensely. Read about the party here...
I WENT TO NEW YORK AND IT WAS AMAZING

I WENT TO NEW YORK AND IT WAS AMAZING

It was. I did. I want to be there NOW. It was also an actual holiday, rather than work. A rarity in my life – haven’t had one for TWELVE YEARS. Here are some pictures of the greatest city in the universe. I cried pretty much solidly with MAD LOVE...
Hostess with the Mostess

Hostess with the Mostess

November Rain

November Rain

This post is named after the Guns n Roses song with the most bombastic video. Stephanie Seymour in a “sexy” wedding dress, Slash playing a guitar (sans amp) outside a church with a fag on, Axl doing some of his best acting in a flouncy shirt, an unnecessarily RUINED five...

Winter is coming

Well would you look at that. We’re in what the music industry calls Q4, where all the big hitting albums are released, X Factor and Strictly is on telly for YEARS and it’s well dark out. And raining. However, as I type it’s still sunny so maybe this will be...

Been a bit busy

Been a bit busy

There have been a whirlwind of gigs to see out 2014. Started in November. Am quite tired now. Christmas parties, birthday parties, Razzmatazzing in Barcelona, W Brunching, not a lot of sleep, a lot of dancefloor action and buckets of fake tan. All very good fun despite the disco fatigue. Four...

Stuff

I’m not really a “blogger” so no idea why I have a blog. I have no great designs on being one. I’m not one for selfies either. I’m quite rubbish at self-promotion despite being able to talk about myself fairly easily and at great length. So really I’d like to...
Wedding Weekend Wonder

Wedding Weekend Wonder

The glorious Southbank Centre have been running a Festival of Love throughout the Summer months. This saw all manner of events, talks and goings on around the theme of L.O.V.E.

Hiya I’m going to be hosting a few shows down at that glorious Southbank-housed Speigeltent, London Wonderground. It’s called the WOW Show. Because it’s just AMAZING. Or should I say, WOW.

Oh hiya. Haven’t been here for a while, soz. Been working and staring at myself in the mirror. Here’s a new mix. It’s a mini mix. A little mix. But not Little Mix. Although, I do have a deep affection for Little Mix. There’s no Little Mix on here though....
BUSY

BUSY

Hiya. I’ve been a bit busy. Christmas was crackers and it’s all been a bit non-stop since. Not that one is complaining, besides it’s best not to sit around watching Homes Under the Hammer with a family pack of Doritos, no matter how tempting a prospect this is. But I...

FRIDAY NIGHT CHRISTMAS DISCO

FRIDAY NIGHT CHRISTMAS DISCO

It’s next Friday 13th (eek) at The Social. It won’t be unlucky, it’ll be tinsel-tastic and baubly brilliant. Apologies for the shocking puns, I am no good at this so why I am even trying I don’t know. It’s on until 3am too. That’s the magic of Christmas and licensing...

Dates and updates (and balls)

Amongst the sunshine and general aceness of August (well done the weather) I did the following: Djed at two weddings, played rooftop parties at Shoreditch House, cooked my parents a 40th wedding anniversary tea, Brunched x 4 at W Does Brunch, had train journeys that lasted five times more than...

July (in retrospective)

July (in retrospective)

Eurovision: an Alternate view

Eurovision: an Alternate view

This isn’t a comment on Eurovision – which incidentally, I LOVE (who’d have thought?). It’s more about Alternative Eurovision from Time Out Live next Friday 17th May at London Wonderground! All those words sound fun together don’t they? Well, you can look with your eyes at how much fun it...

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Feels like a different Christian festival is upon us this weekend rather than the actual egg-fest that will be occurring, but the weather, as you probably know as you wear all your clothes every day to battle against the massive freeze, has not bucked its ideas up since November. At least...
Crafty mix

Crafty mix

Pinned it! Made it! asked me to make a mix for their February party. It’s a monthly crafting event in Hackney run by some savvy girls of Dalston dwelling, where they make different things such as accessories, food, jewellry, floral fabulousness etc and proudly display it on Pinterest for all the...

Things I have been doing / about to do / not mentioned

So it seems I am one of those people who has a blog that they neglect to update. I didn’t think it would be this way, but it is. Besides, I’ve never been a “blogger” type. I am not very social media minded. I don’t photograph my dinners and put...

Christmas Crackers (continued)

Christmas Crackers (continued)

Christmas Crackers part one

Christmas Crackers part one

Despite mince pies being in the supermarket since September, Christmas begins this week in my working world. This doesn’t mean I’ll be ordering a new sofa or stockpiling turkeys. Although who knows, the festive hype up could ravage me and I’ll be resplendent in flashing novelty rudolph earrings, mummified in tinsel with...

Politics of Pop – Radio Special

THE HORROR

THE HORROR

It’s Hallowe’en next week. Instead of going round Hackney dressed up as a disco witch trying to get sweets from terrified old ladies and hipsters who have only just got up at 7.30pm of an evening, I’ll be getting my glad rags on a week before for monster pop type...
GIRLS

GIRLS

It’s the name of my new night with Amy from Sink the Pink starting this Friday 12th October at the magnificent three tiered pleasure palace that is House of Wolf. This what GIRLS is about. Well, it’s us playing records in a super venue, showing off and strutting around in...
My favourite bits of current pop records

My favourite bits of current pop records

Are as follows: Carly Rae Jespen’s “woo!” in “Good Time” with Owl City (but only the “woo!”, not the song as a whole, just the “woo!’. Hope that’s clear). Listen here, but only to the “woo!”. It’s a good “woo!”. The song itself is awful and without said “woo!” would in...
Friday Night Disco - October 19th

Friday Night Disco – October 19th

Friday Night Disco on 19th October sees my monthly party at The Social swing back into view with guaranteed larks a-plenty and a snazzy new poster as seen above.

News of my World

News of my World

Here is some news: Tonight I’m playing on a roof. I am a bird after all so it makes sense, non? It’s not just a random roof. It’s Kensington Roof Gardens so is a bit fancier than the regular roofs on houses and whatnot. It has actual gardens too, not...
A booth with a view

A booth with a view

These are my two favourite views from the booth of recent gigs. Wedding in Cornwall. As much as I love a disco light and a dancefloor, you can’t beat a beach. Fitting song (it was this or Belinda Carlisle’s Circle in the Sand, so think yourself lucky) 28 floors up...
Mayor Greenwood

Mayor Greenwood

For the last bank holiday weekend of the year, I was hawking my wares at Reading Festival playing host as the Mayor of Tuborg Town. It’s not a real town obviously. It’s a made up town, quite small in comparison to your standard town and there was only one type...
Oh! De Gaga

Oh! De Gaga

I love Lady Gaga. I think she’s amazing and bonkers and made pop interesting at a time when it looked like it was going a bit saggy. But I don’t want to smell like her. Although I’ve never met her, so maybe I do. Maybe she smells incredible. I don’t...
Olympic Fever

Olympic Fever

I didn’t see it coming. I didn’t have any symptoms leading up to the games. Quite the opposite in fact. I was all, ‘Transport will go into meltdown!’ ‘London will collapse!’ ‘How will anyone get to work?’ ‘Why can’t I walk down this road anymore?’ ‘Too much money spent on...
Barcelona: me encanta

Barcelona: me encanta

Yes, that’s probably dreadful Spanish and grammatically incorrect, but the sentiment remains. Barcelona: I love you. I’ve been lucky enough to go there fairly regularly for the past four years or so to play at the Guilty Pleasures residency at Razzmatazz. It’s not a bad life is it? Each time...
Hostess trolley

Hostess trolley

Many outdoors events this year have involved umbrellas and wellies or a combo of the two. That’s not a thrilling combo either. Thankfully a hot ball of yellow fire is once again riding high in the sky and yesterday’s BT River of Music gig at Battersea park was a glorious...
A good deal of disco

A good deal of disco

Weeks seem to be running away at the moment. Think it’s to do with the weather. Every day one wakes hoping there will be just a bit of sunshine, only to end the day soggier of shoe and a bit narked. Then we think “Oh maybe it will be nice...
Palaces, Disco and Mud

Palaces, Disco and Mud

I’m djing at a Palace tomorrow. Not THE palace, but A palace is good enough for me. It is in fact Fulham Palace. This is what it looks like It’s pretty. I thought all palaces looked like this (or a version of it with turrets and decorative balls): So I’ve...
Sports

Sports

  Not your typical sporting arena the pub, but it’s a fitting album / image regardless. It’s Olympic year. I live in an Olympic borough. I like sport. (Well, apart from Rugby. And Hockey. And even though you have to be in top shape to be an F1 driver, I...
Is my livelihood under threat?

Is my livelihood under threat?

Paris Hilton has turned her multi talented hand to the art of playing records. Clearly this is another area she will master judging by her debut: She can’t work out what speed to have her records at, but then that was something John Peel used to suffer from (playing 33rpm records at...
Disco workout

Disco workout

I like exercise. Specifically running and lifting / lobbing large weighted objects about my person. The latter usually in the gym and not as some random act of violence against my fellow man. See. I’m sporty.  I also like music. And playing music. And discos. And dancing. That’s why I...
Tunnels and alleys

Tunnels and alleys

I will be lurking in them this weekend. Admittedly not in a sinister manner, or involving criminal behaviour, or indeed outdoors where tunnels and alleys can often be found. Instead I will be playing records on Thursday 21st, Friday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June at the Old Vic Tunnels Summer...

Sheffield: pop, steel and documentaries

I’m off to Sheffield for DocFest, the brilliant documentary festival which takes place annually in the steel city. I’ll be playing at two of their parties, one on Thursday night at a Roller disco (YES!) and the Friday night party, both of which are stupidly good fun. Djing in a...
All hail the Queen

All hail the Queen

Grace Jones at Gary Barlow’s can-I-have-a-knighthood-now-please Jubilee concert.  Nothing about this is not amazing.  Look at her. Look at her thighs. She is 64. Hula hooping and singing at the palace.  AMAZING.
God Save the 90s

God Save the 90s

London Fields Radio have put together a series of special music podcasts for the Queen’s Jubilee, where presenters of each show focus on a decade from 1900s to now – or to be more specific, 1902 – 2012 – and play records of their show’s decade. I did the 90s...

Oh Donna

Oh Donna

I love Donna Summer. She was everything a pop star should be and more. She was a total package of dazzling brilliance. She looked like she came from outer space and sounded like an etherial priestess. She was sexy and spooky and unreachable. She never looked  bored or dialled in...

On air and on the train

On Saturday I’m doing another Dinner Disco, my radio show about food and dancing about one’s kitchen, LIVE (eek!) at Land of Kings Festival in Dalston. Live radio. It’s what it’s all about, man. I actually haven’t done any since I co-presented the Guilty Pleasures show on BBC London with...
Top 5 - WEATHER

Top 5 – WEATHER

Today’s top five, inspired by our drought-riddled country where it hasn’t stopped raining since the hose pipe ban came into force. It’s almost like the weather HATES the Government. Imagine… But for now, let us look to the skies and have seasonal songs fall about our ears. She has also...

Friday Night Disco at the Social in April

I’m back at the Social on Friday 20th April for another post-work party, declaring the weekend officially open with an underground disco dance at the centre of hedonism in swinging London town.
