take me home



Here's the playlist from the first C86 Special, which happened on Friday May 6th, 2011, to mark the 25th anniversary of C86. Kate, our door girl, was a little late getting to the club so I put on "Unholy Soul" by The Orchids to begin with, and sat on the door myself. Which is why the night starts with five Orchids songs in a row...how every night should start really...
