Fancy immersing yourself in classic King Mojo sounds? Well here's the playlist!
Peter Stringfellow’s iconic sixties club the King Mojo - which he ran with his brother Geoff from 1964 to 1967 - brought everyone from Stevie Wonder to Jimi Hendrix to 555 Pitsmoor Road in Sheffield.
The teenage club only served soft drinks but attracted a fanatical following from across northern England.
DJ Peter Stringfellow did weekly trips to London to source new tracks to introduce to northern audiences for the first time.
The Dirty Stop Outs were honoured to curate an online King Mojo night recently and spent time compiling an accurate list of some of the most popular songs played by the man himself. So today we’re giving it you in case you fancy immersing yourself in the mid-‘60s sound of the King Mojo!
