At The Stone Roses after show party in The Arches, Glasgow, Whisky Comedian Alan Anderson has a dram with legendary Hacienda dj duo Graeme Park and Mike Pickering of M-People. In the late 1980s and early 1990s these two men were responsible for bringing house music to the masses at the club owned by New Order.
They drink limited editio single malt Scotch whisky Auchentoshan Valinch and Kentucky straight bourbon Knob Creek whilst discussing the similarities between 20 year old clubbers nowadays with those from 25 years ago, seminal tracks such as Bingo Bongo, producers like Derrick May, and club spaces as diverse as Glasgow’s Tramway, Ayr Pavilion and Heaven in London. Of course they talk whisky… and bourbon Woodford reserve, Lagavulin and Balvenie Double Wood. We also learn that Calvin Harris is a big malt maniac. Guess who’s getting tracked down for a podcast?
Big thanks to everyone at Colour / StreetRave especially Julie McEwan and Iain “Boney” Clarke.
