Skeleton Records 50th Anniversary | Future Yard

A CELEBRATION OF JOHN WEAVER

A local institution, Skeleton Records has stood as a bastion of good music since it’s opening back in 1972. Stocking everything from dub and hip hop to jazz and indie, it has been the solace of many a muso and provided soundtracks to parties, Sunday chillouts and everything in between.

The man behind the shop for all these years, John Weaver, was as much a cultural influence on the town as the business he created. Alongside the shop he promoted shows for the likes of the Sex Pistols, Hawkwind and Motorhead. His passion for music was exuberant and infectious.

With this in mind we are delighted to announce a day celebrating the shop’s 50th anniversary and the life of the man who made it all possible, John, who sadly passed last year. Curated and promoted by Ben Savage from the shop, the line-up is a toast to the local scene that John loved and supported so strongly.

Helping us celebrate John on the night will be Biteback, Hijinx, The Suns, John Poole, The Webb, Chickpea And the Seagull Boy and Modern Marriage.

Tickets are just £5. On sale now.
