I may not yet go as far as to call it a fire in the belly. More a rumbling in the tummy. But either way things are shaping up nicely for summer in Cov Town.

Last week I did something I rarely get chance to do and headed out in my dancing shoes.

Norman Jay the Good Times legend was in town and this was certainly cause for celebration. I once booked Norman to play myself and when I asked him how the gig had been for him he gleefully told me “the best”. The thing is with Norman you really get the impression that every gig he’s just played is the best he’s ever done. He loves it… and it shows the guy has been generating good times for decades and I’m pretty sure it’s because he just loves what he does… and it shows…

It’s safe to say on this occasion he didn’t disappoint playing all the hits and no fillers “Good Times” were certainly had. He played an eclectic mix from ska to house to drum and bass… and I’m pretty sure all the feet in the house were moving when he stuck on a fab version of Nancy Sinatras – These Boots were made for Walking.

Smiles all round it was a great crowd, busy but plenty of space to get your groove on. It’s not often this gal gives praise…but praise where praise is due – They’ve done good down at The Dog!

So come on folks… go support! There’s loads of good stuff coming up – The Herbaliser, Andrew Weatherall, Foals… and I hear rumours that Chk Chk Chk may be coming to town too!!

Watch this space! There’ll be a fire in the belly of Cov before too long!!
