PAUL TUNKIN + IAN JACKSON RESIDENT DJs
BLOW UP is 18 YEARS OLD and is pleased to announce that it will be taking the club to other parts of London outside the West End, starting this Autumn with a new monthly residency at Ginglik in Shepherd's Bush (2 mins from Shepherd's Bush tube / Westfield), launching on Friday 4th November for Blow Up's 18th Birthday. Plus live guests Dave Woodcock & The Splinters + The Little Bleeders ...
Alongside live bands (on early) Blow Up DJs Paul Tunkin, Ian Jackson (and the occasional guest) will be spinning 60's Soul, Beat, Garage, Funk, Ska, Soundtracks, Electronica, Library Music colliding with British Pop, Glam, Indie-Pop and New-Wave. Blow Up's playlist is far from being defined by the Brit Pop genre it helped kick-start back 18 years ago in 1993: A celebration from the other side of Pop where the Kinks, Bowie, Blur share the dancefloor with current newcomers Pete & The Pirates, British Sea Power and Metronomy, all alongside Blow Up's trademark mix of Swinging Soundtracks & TV Themes (The Italian Job to Barbarella), 60s Exotica & Electronica (Jean-Jacques Perry), 60s Club Soul (Motown, Stax etc.), Northern Soul, Beat, Mod Jazz, French Pop (Jacques Dutronc, Bridget Bardot) and New Wave (XTC, Wire).

DAVE WOODCOCK & THE SPLINTERS
Dave Woodcock & The Splinters return to Blow Up after their show in September and will be heading up from the town of outstanding talent Southend-On-Sea. Expect great songs delivered in Dave's own inimitable Essex style. Best described as the closest thing to a knees-up with Chas’N’Dave and The Kinks’ Ray Davies!
Fresh from supprting DFA 1979, signed to Lizard King (Killers, Santagold, The Pierces) and all the way from Melbourne, Australia are [Me].
