Shellac Sound

When the bands weren't playing we had the delight of listening to the music from the 1920's,30's and 40's on original wind-up gramophones. As a dancer you can imagine my toes tapping happily away. Ooo don't we just love those old 78's! Even though i manage to snap as many as i play on my Dansette at home!
Shellac sound is Matt Jones and Kate Wright ,gramophone enthusiasts from Bristol and i recomend there music and atmophere they create.
Always on look out to share things with like minded peeps...

The Stall!
Think it must have been the sunshine this afternoon and the glimpse of bunting as i cycled into town that made me remember The Stall. This is how Flo-jo began way back in 2004!
