First of all, a big, unreserved thanks to anyone who's made it to any of our parties and shows this year, and a special thanks to anyone who came and made Mister Saturday Night feel very welcome in Manchester last month. A properly inspiring evening. Beyond MSN, we've had Fort Romeau, Auntie Flo and James Booth all guest for us this year, and it's been brilliant hosting all of them. There's more to come in 2014, and we'll be doing a few things a little differently too.
However, before then, there's two rapid fire parties that you're cordially invited to attend.
First of all, our gift to you, the Work Them Xmas Party. John Loveless takes his usual Kosmonaut residency and faces the DJ’s nightmare of ‘Mad Friday’ (20th December: forewarning) head on with a no-dickheads, no-requests policy, plus, free Eggnog and mince pies. We’ve also arranged for some special guest DJ friends to drop in like Bowie knocking on Crosby, armed with the universal gifts of disco, house, pop, boogie and some sharp sounding seasonal surprises. We'll be starting from 8PM, finishing up at 1, and it's completely free.

Then, on New Year's Eve, we're proper proud to be part of Islington Mill's 'Future Party', which promises to answer questions such as 'what does the future hold', 'will the banking system collapse and capitalism die?' and 'Will the Jetson's finally arrive and eradicate cars for hovercraft aeroplanes?', through the interprative medium of a big, banging party.
We'll be taking over Room 3 with musical soul brothers and Common regulars Stop Making Sense, upstairs with an endless sunset. Expect NYE party records you love, some fresh shit and as the night wears on, an unapologetic house and techno strobe lit pummelling. If you get bored of us, local heroes Faktion, Ping Pong Club, Tranarchy and more will be on hand, accompanied by some sincerely out there visuals and other future-haul paraphernalia. If you're off anywhere NYE, make it t'Mill.
Earlybird tickets are still available at the time of writing, at just £15. Based on previous years, this will sell out. Get on it.
If you get a moment to duck out of the pure cheer of the season, then the latest Work Them mix might be for you. '4 After Club Use Only', mixed live by John Loveless is an hour of some of the best understated and emotional records of 2013, designed with a late bus home in mind. Features Bibio, Not Waving, Daniel Avery, Julia Holter and more on a free download, slow moving tip.
Otherwise, we don't see you, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
