Ninja Tune’s Mr Scruff plays a frankly ridiculous 6 hour set in The Button Factory on March 16th and we’ve some tickets for you to win, if you’ve the stamina…
Better put the kettle on – it’s going to be a long night.
A lot of things have happened since a young Andy Carthy started answering to the name Mr Scruff – making a name for himself under the shadow of Manchester’s mid 90s club scene. Not only has he released four critically acclaimed albums, selling over half a million records worldwide, with countless tours and club events he has cemented his now legendary DJ status. This is a DJ that can sell out the 1600 capacity London KoKo armed only with his records, some turntables and a few spare packets of teabags.
More than that, Scruff has established himself as a general guarantor of quirkiness and quality so that when his range of speciality teas were launched they became the 5th best selling grocery product in the long and illustrious history of Selfridge’s Food Hall (see www.makeusabrew.com for more tea shenanigans). His ‘CUP’ tea shop in Manchester packs in the punters and the now legendary traveling tea stall is a firm favourite at Scruff gigs & festivals all over the UK. Meanwhile, his wobbly potato people adorn t-shirts, brollies and even people’s bodies (Ninja Tune has been sent documentary evidence of this phenomenon ).
