Any Old Sunday started in November 2016 as a once a month Sunday afternoon to late evening soirée for those who were looking for alternative grooves to make them move. Starting in Kings Cross and with a few months sabbatical, we reconvened in the summer of 2017 and held down three regular residency venues in Camden and our last three were in Stoke Newington before the national lockdown in the spring of 2020.
Residents Dez Parkes, Dezzi D & Fitzroy(Soul Survivors) have a rich history together and between them in spinning and hosting Sunday sessions dating back to 40 years ago. The music selection is second to none as all three have reputation of plying eclectic music out of the box. Any Old Sunday has attracted a loyal devoted music lovers and dancers who like their music a little left of the right.
We are back monthly starting Sunday 12th September @ All Nations Bar 81 Broad Lane London N.15 4DW 4pm-9pm £5 admission on a nice wooden dance floor with space to slide & glide.. Food and refreshments are available and the venue is well ventilated and located just across the road from Seven Sisters underground station (Victoria Line) and the parking is free!

Good morning, here’s a Blue Peter one I drew earlier yesterday morning. Albeit I’m a COYS fan gotta big up this young Gunners and England football star. Just raising the profile of Mr Boom SAKA Laka a young African prince given the freedom to the borough of my old hood Ealing. Raise in Greenford UB6 15 minutes walk up the road from my local Perivale UB6 this 19 year old has achieved so much at his tender age than myself and many of my first and second generation Windrush teenagers did when we were a Paul Hardcastle na na na na ’19’ year old!!
9 years ago I was fortunate to have an in depth interview with Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff which was very enlightening. It was a members only issue but we do have some back issue which are available from our website shop. In our current issue 95 we feature an advert for an amzing box set Get On Board The Soul Train with a record review in the designated section of the magazine. It’s included in this Blog post so have a read and make sure you secure one and also grab yourself a copy of the issue 40 with the Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff interview.. Enjoy..Fitzroy
Today is a proper ‘Waybackintheday Wednesday’ for sure. It’s 15 years exactly on this date that the very first edition of The Soul Survivors Magazine was distributed to the soul surviving attendees at The Soul Village Weekender 7th-9th July 2006. This small acorn has grown into a teenaged soul tree that has produced 92 issues as the ‘info provider for the soul survivor’.
Co founded by Anna Marshall who left after 9 years in 2015 and myself still carrying with the baton, both of us novices and virgins at the time in the music publication industry, which already had a few still on going long serving and established soul music journals.
The Soul Survivors Magazine as a bi monthly printed and digital publication has been blessed to have some great contributors and advertisers too many to mention and featured interviews many with the following:
Smokey Robinson, Jocelyn Brown, Omar, Leroy Burgess, Jean Carn, Jeffery Daniel& Howard Hewitt (Shalamar), Melba Moore, Chaka Khan, Eddie Levert (O Jay’s), Robert & Ronald Khalis Bell (Kool & The Gang) Frankie Beverly (Maze),Greg Edwards, Robbie Vincent, Tony Blackburn, Dez Parkes, George Power Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson, Chris Hill, Colin Curtis, Trevor Shakes, Brand New Heavies, John Legend, Leon Ware, Larry Blackmon (Cameo), Wayne Henderson, George Duke, Thelma Houston, Teena Marie, Tom Moulton, John Morales, Louie Vega, Josh Milan, Nile Rodgers (Chic), Steve Arrington (Slave) and Larry Graham (Sly & The Family Stone). Roy Ayers, Gwen McCrea, Gwen Dickey (Rose Royce), Harold Brown (War) Omar, Bluey (Incognito), Carleen Anderson, Courtney Pine, Gary Hines(Sounds Of Blackness) Rahsaan Patterson, Natalie Stewart aka Floacist (Floetry), Eric Roberson, Jazzie B, HB & Caron Wheeler(Soul II Soul), Marcus Miller & Angie Stone.
I’ve tried to keep this brief as I have so much more memorabilia to share over the next few weeks and I will be personally thanking the subscribers contributors and advertisers in the forthcoming various posts. Happy 15th to The Soul Survivors and long may we continue to be the’ info provider for the soul survivor’
