After two months off DJing, I returned back to the Alternative Bring’n'Buy sale, once again joined by Scott McMahon (now working under the name ‘DJ The Scott’), for our longest day of DJing yet.  Today’s set included a number of bands that had made a mark on the UK live scene during August, plus at least one that should have but didn’t (come back Pitchies, all is forgiven!).

Set 1 – 10:20am-11:45am

Neo-folk for set up, some downtempo electronics to cure any hangovers, and then onto the minimal melodic synth thing that I’ve discovered works particularly well at this time of morning.

Welle:Erdball – Der Flipperkönig
Mr.Kitty – Insects
Auto-Auto – Toadboy

Set 2 – 1pm-2pm

Despite focusing on older EBM and dark electro in club sets these days, this event is about variety, so I dug out some of the lesser-played (by me) ‘oontz’ material, too.

Front 242 – Flag
Die Krupps – Robo Sapien
Eco – Hass Und Liebe
Project Pitchfork – Alpha Omega
Velvet Acid Christ – We Have To See We Have To Know

5pm-5:30pm – Jonny vs Scott Tag Team

Actually, this ended up as more of a ‘England vs USA’ Tag Team (not being sufficient amounts of Scottish punk for Scott to show his background)……anyway, Scott’s tracks are in italics.

Cock Sparrer – Take ‘em All
Blondie – X-Offender
Cockney Rejects – Oi Oi Oi
Dead Kennedys – California Uber Alles
Ian Dury – Sex and Drugs and Rock’n'Roll

And then over the road to continue……

Tufnell Park – DJ Double-Header on 7 Sepember

News August 28th, 2014

Sunday is only a day of rest for some.  On 7 September, I return to DJing alonside Scott McMahon (now officially ‘DJ The Scot’) for a back-to-back pair of sets in our favourite Tufnell Park haunts.

First we’ll be playing at The Alternative Bring’n'Buy Sale, London’s real alternative to the mainstream shopping experience.  Come along to browse, buy, chat and/or enjoy the tunes.  I’ll be there all day.  Entry is 50p (free for London Gothic members).

Then we’ll be crossing the road to Aces and Eights, where we’ll be running an open request list – the audience decides the music policy.  They run Happy Hour on Sunday from 4pm to 11pm, and also serve pizza (always been a post-Bring’n'Buy favourite of mine!).  This one is FREE ENTRY.
