On 27th November 2012, ZANI were invited down to take part on Pelirocco Platters, Brighton’s community station RadioReverb.
Pelirocco Platters is the Radio subsidiary of the famous Rock ‘n’ Roll Hotel, Hotel Pelirocco. A classy and cosy hotel that captures the true spirit of Rock ‘n’ Roll, each room is themed to capture an era or genre of Rock ‘n’ Roll. With iconic posters and photos from top to bottom, ranging from The Smiths to Johnny Cash. In addition it has a nice little bar, which has seen the likes of Noddy Holder holding court into the early hours, and a breakfast that sets you up for the day. The hotel certainly does inspire and intrigue you, and when ZANI’s editor Matteo Sedazzari was checking in (Pelirocco Platters kindly gave me a room), a glamour photo shoot was taking place in the lobby, which seems to be the norm.
Pelirocco Platters is hosted by Mick Habeshaw Robinson AKA Ginger Mick, a face on the Acid House scene, a pioneering casual back in the early eighties and a true lover of music, football and fashion.
Matteo Sedazzari spoke in depth and delight with Mick about the energy of music, Acid House, bands, online magazines and much more, with Sedazzari playing some favourite tunes ranging from The Smiths to Beyonce.
Give it a listen
And if you visiting Brighton, be sure to stay at Pelirocco Platters, and you might find the Hunter S Thompson in you itching to get out.
