This is the Kit “Absolutely gorgeous, like an aural bath with the warm water lapping over you” Cerys Matthews, BBC 6music
30 years ago today Paul Jackson turned the key of The New Adelphi Club. Paul’s aims and ambitions were quite simple then: to be involved in promoting diverse and original music; to make a bit of a living; and to survive.
The last three decades have been a rollercoaster ride but today we celebrate. Tonight we welcome the utterly fantastic This is the Kit and The Sarah Johns Music Party. Miss it – Miss out. This is ace. Still some tickets available on the door tonight for what promises to be a big party. Bring cake and a big smile.
“I hope you won’t mess with this Adelphi. It’s a perfect grass roots environment for music. We need small clubs for the eccentrics and originals that fly under the media radar. A place where you might actually hear something transcendent and moving. Or an accent you can’t understand.” Steve Malkmus – Pavement
“Hull City Council should make the Adelphi a Grade One Listed Building and erect a sizeable statue of Paul on Newland Avenue, preferably with Yosser by his side and beret tilted slightly to the right.” Paul Heaton
