How are you spending the last bank holiday until August this Sunday? If you have any sense, you’ll probably be at Revolution checking out Adam Ficek on the decks.
The former Babyshambles co-writer and drummer is making an appearance at new night Electrindie, and little did you know, this is actually his hometown gig.
Ficek was born in Bletchley and made his first music in the glamorous Bletchley Leisure Centre. “There wasn’t that much happening in the alternative music scene but small pockets existed,” he told Beatcheck.
Since then there’s pretty much nowhere he hasn’t played – either as part of Babyshambles, or through his coveted solo DJ sets which mix classic indie with dancefloor electro and are glued together with what he calls ‘Ficekedits’ (whatever they may be).
It’s a far cry from his humble roots in MK, and it seems he’s pretty proud of his success – and rightly so: “Playing Wembley was a big deal for me,” he said: “It’s always a great achievement to see yourself on tele for the first time.”
And while Revolution may be no Wembley, it is on our doorstep, and we think it’ll be a heavy night, so get off your arses and get down and support Our Kid would you?
He’ll be playing alongside Kasabian Tour DJ Dan Ralph Martin. See the event details here.
We have two pairs of tickets to give away to this show.
