It's A Wind Up


Matt and Annabel a.k.a. “It’s A Wind Up” hail from Manchester and are the most northerly of the Shellac Collective DJs.

Their selection of shellac 78rpm discs ranges from the 20s through to the late 50s so can include the big band sound of the 40s (Glen Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington etc) rock and roll, ( Elvis, Little Richard), skiffle (Lonnie Donegan, the Vipers, Chas McDevitt) classic crooners (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and the rest of the Rat Pack) plus some really old 20s music of the great Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton and the like.

Matt says “As a musician I wanted to experience the music as people would have heard it originally. I read an interview with Dizzy (Gillespie) and he said he’d worn out a record of Miles (Davis) in a day! It had to be a 78 so I went out and got one.The experience is real and immediate and it’s become a mission to collect this stuff and get it out there somehow. My knowledge and understanding of the music has grown and every time we acquire discs we learn more. 78 DJ is just the best and most fun way to hear this music and it’s feels great when the audience digs and dances to the discs.”  Vout.
