Let’s Go! will be keep listeners up to date with the current going ons in the world of Punk and Rock & Roll, championing recent releases and music from the past couple of decades. The odd bit of nostalgia will creep in to celebrate anniversary releases and tours but mostly we’ll be looking forward!
At age 15 Adam did his school work experience at Harlow grassroots music venue The Square. Eight years later, after various voluntary and paid roles, he was part of the team that saw the venue through its most prolific period, taking charge of the live music programming. From 2007 he has been bassist for punk band Newtown Neurotics, and more recently with London’s ‘Motohead of Power Pop’ Los Pepes. In early 2019 Adam was invited to play bass for Eddie & The Hot Rods as part of their final tour, opening up 14 UK dates with Stiff Little Fingers.
DJ gigs include the 100 Club for Steve Diggle’s (Buzzcocks) album launch (2011) and The Chords UK ‘Nowhere Land’ album tour and the Electric Ballroom for The Rifles’ ‘No Love Lost’ 10th anniversary shows in 2015.
Adam now runs Black Wax Music, promoting live music events around Essex and London with a new record label launching soon!
