Bryan Biggs: Playlist for Lowry Lounge 29/10/10

The first report back on the Lowry Lounge evening held at the Bluecoat focuses on the music played by the Firminists resident DJ - Bryan Biggs who as the Artistic Director of the The Bluecoat was hosting our inaugural gathering.

The musical choices are based on references to Lowry's likes and lifestyle with a smattering of South American references and some references which have obscure meanings only known to Firminist acolytes.


Esquivel – Exploring New Sounds in Hi-Fi LP tracks (to create a lounge atmosphere as guests arrived, including the ex-US Poet Laureate Billy Collins)
George Formby – I’m the Ukulele Man
Fred Waring & the Pennsylvanians – Dry Bones
Bix Beiderbecke – Singing the Blues
Django Reinhardt & Stephane Grappelly with The Quintet of the Hot Club of France – Lambeth Walk
Wynonie Harris – Drinkin’ Wine, Spo-Dee-O-Dee
Prince Buster & the All Stars – South of the Border
Anton Karas – The Harry Lime Theme
The Lon Dhoo & Lon Vane Choirs – Manx Fishermen’s Hymn

Jack Bruce – Under the Volcano
Carmen Miranda – South American Way
