Fucked Up Rootical Stuff

playing at this tomorrow – opening slot, 2pm, with lots of excellent eclecticism to follow. I’m probably going to play the kind of fucked up, speaker punishing dub nonsense I don’t normally get to play out. Kennington be warned.

despite management / promoter / venue hassles and the like, the Leadpipe crew did a fine job on Saturday.. we got DJ Wrongspeed in at the last minute to stand in for a missing DJ Scotch Egg, Shitmat was marvellous despite having his set truncated when the venue (in fact all the venues involved) chucked everyone out, only to let them back in AN HOUR later having weeded out the ‘all ages’ crowd… Thoroughly enjoyed my set, and it seemed to go OK (despite being astonishingly pissed). Lots of DJ niceness followed, especially Rory, Eltham John and obviously Deadlock who finished off.

There seems to be some rubbish politics  / flagrant capitalism trying to undo the best efforts of Leadpipe et al to build a cool little scene down in the New X / Deptford area, but Leadpipe are soldiering on regardless and respect is due for that. Hopefully won’t be the last thing I do with them, they’re sound!

Looks like a cracking night – it’s part of some huge New X-wide one day festival thing. Think I’m on about 10pm, and I’ll be on a jumpin’ jive / New Orleans / swing / rockabilly tip I reckon



So What Are YOU Doing This Weekend?

I win. I’m going to the Bloc Weekender

 It might be a freezing out-of-season Pontins on the north sea coast, but lookee-here

The Basstec Arena alone offers Kool Keith, Dr Octagon, Two Lone Swordsmen, Muziq, Vex’d, Virus Syndicate, Congo Natty, Black Sun Empire, Loefah and Youngsta. Add to that the likes of Surgeon (my favourite techno DJ by a comfortable margin), Rhythm & Sound and The Iration Steppas Sound System (with the aforementioned dubstep types on it) and it should be a cracking weekend. I suspect the official coach from the site to London on Sunday night might be a tad more subdued than the one going up….



And There’s More…

straight after the aforementioned rock’n’roll night at the Prince Albert, I’m heading down to the Red Star in Camberwell to hopefully catch the last strains of this lot’s set..

Before turning into a late 70s roots turn in the upstairs room.

Really looking forward to playing at this.. I occasionally dust off some old swing / big band stuff, but to play a proper set of R&R, R&B and swing will be a bloody treat.. do come down!
