Peckham Soul Presents: Togetherness

David Bowie, stepped in European Modernism and recording ‘Heroes’ in Berlin during the late 70’s perfectly illustrates the musical dialogue that’s always existed between the UK and Europe. Whether Can, Neu, Sigor Ros, Sugarcubes or Deus influence on British alternative music; Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder or Vangelis impact on British electronica; Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Brel or Edith Paif and the magnetism of European song-writing craft, or Django Reinhardt and Toots Theilemans and the legacy of European Jazz, despite misguided times an affinity which transit soundwaves across the Channel or North Sea remains undiminished, even in these misguided times.
