Tonight’s posting is accompanied by the abstract photography of the nightclub at 2am… Went out to see my mate Barry at his regular Saturday night gig. Weird to hear someone else you know dj in a club; weird in that his and my choice of songs are remarkably similar even though we would have never spoken about it.
Is there some sort of chip in the brain that guys who dj in clubs have that says “Yeah, that one will work with a drunk crowd, that one won’t…” Did spend one protracted period on the dancefloor out of which all I can remember is Dr Dre’s “The Next Episode”, Snoop’s “What’s My Name?” and Ini Kamoze’s “Here Comes The Hotstepper” Maybe it’s a good thing I don’t remember more…?
The phrase that pulls the most people into the blog who’ve never been here before?

Liverpool losing today? Arse. Particularly when Chelsea had slipped up earlier in the day, we were so dominant for most of the game and to have someone so highly over-rated as Rio Ferdinand score the winner in the 90th minute? Humph.
Sunday night is (almost) always when I wade through what’s come in during the week and decide what will get played next week. Tonight I’m really liking:
Beth Orton – Conceived
Cat Power – The Greatest
Corinne Bailey Rae – Put Your Records On
Couse & The Impossible – Beauty Is.
Fall Out Boy – Sugar, We’re Going Down
God Is An Astronaut – A Moment Of Stillness
Moby – Slipping Away
Paul Casey – Thanks For Letting Me Crash
Pharrell – Angel
Q – No Pulse
Sinead O’Connor – Untold Stories
The Shout Out Louds – Please Please Please
Rodrigo y Gabriela – Tamacun
Expect to hear most or all of them during the week on the show.
Fascinated to se what will be waiting in a silver/red bag for me in the office tomorrow evening. A “Kiss Me Quick” hat? Fishnet speedo junior? Who can tell…
