The host of “Wendy May’s Locomotion”, which regularly pulled in 2000 clubbers, is heading to Greenwich Winter Time Festival.
Wed 6 Dec, Fri 8 Dec, Wed 27 Dec, Fri 29 Dec - Evening
Back in the late 80’s, Wendy May ran a clubnight at Kentish Town’s “Town & Country Club” on Friday nights called “Wendy May’s Locomotion” which regularly pulled in 2000 clubbers and is featured in Nick Hornby’s book “ 31 Songs”. Frequented by the likes of Madness, Elvis Costello, Paul Weller, it became home from home for Camden boys The Pogues. Norman Cooke aka Fatboy Slim did one of his first ever DJ sets warming up for Wendy when he was the bass player with The Housemartins, and Phill Jupitus first took to the decks at her club!
In ‘87 she co-presented the last series of The Tube for Channel 4 with Jools Holland & Paula Yates whilst also being the only female DJ & “youth presenter” on London’s Capital Radio, giving live sessions to up & coming bands. DJing for the past 30 years, including Glastonbury, Miner’s Strike benefit gigs, tours with various bands and top comedians, she is still happiest dancing behind the decks spinning her favourite records from her collection!
Artists will not appear at every session and are subject to change.
