Kevin Rowland has announced that he will have ‘carte blanche’ as DJ at indie-pop club How Does It Feel To Be Loved next month.

The Dexys Midnight Runners frontman will be picking the records on Friday February 2, at the club’s first Friday of the month venue, The Canterbury Arms in Brixton, South London.

Guest DJs at the the popular twice-monthly club, are usually asked to try to adhere to the club’s policy of music, but HDIF-hero Rowland should have no trouble at all.

Lyrics taken from Dexys’ “Let’s Make It Precious” are stated as the indie club’s music policy, “Sing me a record/That cries pure and true/
No not those guitars/They’re too noisy and crude.
The kind that convinces refuses to leave/There’s no need to turn it up.
If it’s pure I’ll feel it from here.”

The HDIF club website translates the young soul rebel’s words to playing a mixture of Tamla motown, northern soul and 60s heartbreak groups.
