What is the definition of eclecticism?

Nick Shearer

I know in the recording above, Nick refers to his good friend ‘Bevis’ as Mr Italo, but I honestly have never heard of this section of music before I met Nick, and I’m particularly a big fan of the way he pronounces the word Italo in his husky northern tones 😉

2018 has seen me work quite a fair bit with Nick, which I’m really glad about as I got to become quite friendly with Micky, Matt and Sean over 2017 during the Eats n Beats phase. This year it started when Luke hosted an Icy Cold Lake session at 60mpc back in January. Nick had brought out the old oil burner, i mean lighting rig lol which has seen subsequent outings in recent months, and now we’re also working together on project Disco Juju(ice) which will see more of the afro latin flavours being spread around Bournemouth.

Keep an eye out for more individual features in this series – probably once a year.. Up next are either Micky, Sean or Grant.

We hope you enjoy the recording above.
