About Me:

We unleash our vinyl collection twice a month at Torquay's Green Room: RETRO SOUL & FRIDAY ON MY MIND, the 1st & 3rd friday nights of the month. New Years Eve we DJ at Yum Sing, Torquay's premier Chinese restaurant. This restaurant has a fantastic atmosphere and the best, home cooked food - really a night not to be missed! Have DJ'd recently at Ruby Slipper's Retro Romp 2011, Sixties nights at Premier Cru Cocktail Bar, Going Underground punk/new wave nights, The Attic nightclub, various private parties and scooter club events, compered at the Occombe Music festival and most recently DJ'd at Lemonfest, Newton Abbot's music festival. History: We both DJ'd full-time throughout the 1990's, taking a break to have children and now returning together as The Vinyl Avengers! DJ Loadz built a name for himself as a long-standing Mod DJ in Devon. Lady Jade grew up in L.A. on a diet of NYD, Iggy & Soul Train. Worked for the legendary Kim Fowley in Hollywood. Moved to London, where she was influential in the psychedelic scene of the 1980's, managing bands Miles Over Matter, Treatment & Bad Detective, along with staging the Great Mango party. Promoted and DJ'd the notorious Valley of the Dolls club in Carnaby Street. DJ'd in Tokyo and London, sharing a stage with the James Taylor Quartet, Bruce Willis(!) and many other acts. Most memorable night was DJ'ing for Rod Stewart, a great lover of Motown. We currently reside in Torquay and have been DJ'ing locally for the past 3 years. In addition to our regular nights, we are available for selected private events.

  • The Who at Torquay Town Hall poster is from July 1965. If you paste the following into Google Image then you'll be able to save many more: "The Who Torquay Poster".

    There is another Who Torquay Town Hall poster from August 1965 ("By Demand The Return Of The Who"), and another from August 1966. There is also a Kinks poster, a Jimmy James and The Vagabonds/The Cream from 1966, and a Jeff Beck poster, all from Torquay Town Hall. Here's the same Who Poster without the frame and a few others I found:

    You can buy the originals of these posters by following the links after you have done the search on Google Images. I hope you like them. See you both at the Len Price 3 gig next Friday. All the best, David.
