Tickets now on sale...for Pat Nevin's Box of Tricks

Back in the late 1980s, before Joey Barton cornered the Nietzsche market on Twitter, and fishes in the sea were just a twinkle in Eric Cantona's poetry net, there existed, at Goodison, a proper thinking guy's (and girl's) footballer. 

With his Duran Duran style coiffe, Pat Nevin was the one-time Celtic player who graduated from Glasgow's Caledonian University while his team-mates there mainly came from the school of hard-knocks. 

A close pal of John Peel's, Nevin knew as much about literature and the arts as he did about corner kicks and stoppage time.

His playing division was Joy Division and while rock and roll was slowly dying to the sounds of Phil Collins and Lionel Richie, Nevin was being interviewed in the NME on the finer points of The Fall.

“I used to have to buy two copies each week,” he says, "because the lads in the dressing room would mess about with one, but I'd know I had the other one safe in my bag to read in the team hotel." 

Since then, the Scottish International and Everton and Clyde legend has sided with Tranmere Rovers and Motherwell as chief executive and i now better known as a writer and broadcaster.

But although his days on the pitch are over, he is still kicking up a storm on the dancefloor, with rare appearances as a guest DJ at the odd club night and festival. 

Now he comes to Liverpool to do just that: Pat Nevin's Box of Tricks arrives at Bill and Wendy Harpe's Black-E, next month. 

It's a Harvest Sun gig and Pat brings four of his favourite live acts with him: The Loud, The Lucid Dream, Deadbeat Echoes and Mercury 13, plus Andrew Ellis and the Cooking Soup DJs. 

Expect tunes from Jayne Casey's Pink Industry, Belle and Sebastian, Orange Juice and Mark E Smith's finest, plus all the latest and greatest sounds spun by Nevin on the wheels of steel. 

*Pat Nevin's Box of Tricks, Friday March 23, 8pm, The Black-E, Nelson Street, L1. Tickets, £6 from ticketweb and Probe Records or see the FB page here
