The Dublin Castle in Camden Town has attained legendary status over recent decades, featuring a fine array of artists and attaining a unique place in the movement that became known as Britpop. On 19 October, it played host to a showcase of the bands on Plastic Pop Records, comprising some of the best talent currently around. The bands playing were The Moment, Marmalade Sky, The Ace, The Ganders and Robby Allen. DJ Dave Edwards spun the 45s.
Run by Tony Clark, Dexter Cullen and Jason Claydon, Plastic Pop is a quality independent label, with the ethos and authenticity of the greats like Rough Trade, Factory and Acid Jazz. These bands are all producing fine contemporary tunes that are set firmly in the twenty first century but with a nod to the great music of the past.
This is one of the bands who played that day. Marmalade Sky with their anthemic Last Ethical Hooligan.
