'Edge of Love' is one of those tracks that has the potential to be huge: it's got funky, disco synths and a velvet drum-beat that briefly crosses into the realm of trip-hop. With visions of sun, sea and parties, Loose Meat's debut could well be the soundtrack of your Summer.
RAW MEAT: Tell us
about your local music scene; what’s your favourite local venue, are there any
record labels or stores we should look up, what’s the scene like where you’re
Loose Meat: Favourite live venue at the moment is the Moth Club. For basement DJ’s check out Club Makossa, Experimental, Honey Moon on Hackney Road. Our immediate scene is kinda based around K’s studio in TRC Dalston, London. Lots of great bands are coming through here, such as Comet is Coming, Flamingods and some we are releasing on our label Whipped Cream Records, like Blue House and Super Best Friend’s Club. Various members cross over in each other’s bands. There’s a great nurturing and inclusive atmosphere. Members of some of the above bands will play in the Loose Meat live show.
Name one track or

‘Crawfish’ by Patti Paladin and Johnny Thunders, it’s an Elvis track executed with extra swag.

Got to be Flamingods!
Name one track or band that you think we should be looking out for in the future.
Super Best Friends Club (LP coming this year on Whipped Cream Records) - imagine Arthur Russell fronting Soft Machine.
