The Deep Hum At The Heart Of It All

We’re very pleased to announce a special three month festival of events every Wednesday between July and September – presented by Heavenly and Clockwork in the heart of London’s Fitzrovia.

Bunkered down in the very centre of the city, absorbed in a basement of concrete, The Deep Hum will resonate every week with the emerging sounds of some of the best psych and fuzzed up bands around. With special guest DJs spinning everything from vintage to brand new garage, rock n roll and kosmische sounds for the dance floor.

The Social has been a reliable bolt-hole in W1 for 15 years. A safe haven for music lovers, drinkers, barflies and believers since 1999, opened by Heavenly Recordings after the successful cub night of the same name came to an end.

The name for the night was brazenly stolen from a chapter in Michael Smith’s book Unreal City. We told Michael about the new night over Fitzrovia bar-crawl (we also ‘fessed up to stealing the name too) and he very kindly wrote these words for us

‘From crackhead tramps to red lights in windows, to the trendiest Campari cocktail, Soho’s all about appetites…“SOHO!” – William the Conqueror’s hunting cry when deer roamed in its woods; and a thousand years later, Soho’s still a hunting cry…

Ghosts linger in this part of town, the ghosts of old Oxford Street that Thomas De Quincey stalked on his moonlit opium wanderings, and over into Fitzrovia’s spectral alleys: Rimbaud and Verlaine deranging their senses in a doss-house off Charlotte Street, Aleister Crowley casting spells on Dylan Thomas in pubs with nicknames like “The Burglars’ Rest,” Donovan drifting down Sunny Goodge Street with eyes he’s not used yet, a psychic Sunny Goodge Street you sense is still soaked into the nicotine stained ceilings of certain bars…

Bars I’ve sat in watching sword-swallowers swallow their swords for a glass of red wine, watching bankrobbers get arseholed with dukes and earls, watching 70-year-old ex-strippers floor Panama-hatted old fops with one punch… the crossroads of London, in all its richness and wrongness, clinging on stubbornly with chipped red nails, still life in the old hooer yet: it whispers to you from doorways up rickety stairs, down dark alleys and dimly lit cellar bars, the deep hum at the heart of of it all…’
