Former Everton FC winger Pat Nevin was always one of football’s mavericks but the ex-Blues man has been living a double life as a club DJ.

The 51-year-old is even a surprise name on the bill for retro festival Shiiine On in November headlined by the Happy Mondays.

Tricky wide man Nevin made a living out of turning opposition full-backs inside out during his playing days but is now turning the tables in a London nightspot.

He is back for a fourth stint at the Moustache Bar in Stoke Newington this weekend where patrons can expect to hear tunes from the likes of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Camera Obscura, The Fall, Belle and Sebastian and New Order,

Nevin, who was signed for Everton by Colin Harvey for £925,000 in 1988 and scored 20 goals in 138 appearances before joining Tranmere in 1992 said: “People know me for football but I’ve been on the decks for more than 30 years — music has always been my main passion. I’ve played other gigs at that venue before, so they asked me to get involved.”

The Glaswegian first took to the turntables during the 1980s London clubbing scene after being inspired by friend and former radio DJ John Peel, a well-known Liverpool fan from Heswall.

Nevin admitted that the majority of the people who hear his music probably don’t realise his sporting connections or are not concerned and added: “Most of them are indie kids so they probably don’t know I am.

“I’ve played the same venues for ages so they don’t care that I was a footballer.”
