NORMAN JAY MBE: LIVE Q&A WITH GILLES PETERSON
Rough Trade are very excited to present this Interactive Live Stream Zoom Q&A with Norman Jay MBE joining very special guest host Gilles Peterson for an intimate in-conversation and audience questions. This event celebrates the paperback release of 'MISTER GOOD TIMES', the incredible story of Norman Jay MBE.
'Norman Jay's contribution to club culture is immeasurable . . . He brought new life to undiscovered classics and in doing so turned on a whole new generation' (David Rodigan)
'Full of the heart and spirit Norman Jay brings to his music, but it also offers a salutary account of growing up as part of the Windrush generation in London's Notting Hill, the violence and racism he faced, and his success' (Observer)
Mister Good Times is the enthralling story of a black kid growing up in a (largely white) working class world; of vivid, often violent experiences on the football terraces; of the emerging club scene growing out of a melting pot of styles; of how Jay, with his contemporaries, took the music of Black America, gave it a distinctly London twist, and used the marriage of styles to forge a hugely successful career as a trailblazing DJ and broadcaster, becoming an inspiration to a whole generation of dance music fans, black and white, without ever compromising his integrity.
Along the way are tales of adventures across the country following Spurs; of Northern Soul nights, warehouse parties and illegal raves; of sound systems, the good and bad times of the Notting Hill carnival, the heady days of pirate radio, Rare Groove and the burgeoning British dance music scene.
Norman Jay MBE and our host will join this live stream webinar for an intimate conversation, discussing the new album and taking questions directly from audience members on an interactive live stream powered by Zoom.
