The lockdown meant no Infest Festival this year, but it did mean Stay-In-Fest was a thing – a twelve-hour virtual festival across three streams. As well as a number of interviews that I conducted for the day – all of which will appear on /amodelofcontrol.com over the next couple of weeks – I was asked […]
My friend Jacqui turned 40 over the Christmas period, so decided to throw a party when more people could come and invited me and a few friends to DJ it. Naturally, it was a whole lot of fun. This was, of course, my first DJ set of the new decade.
A fifth time DJing for the GVWI Hallowe’en party, even if it was a bit earlier than usual this year (damn those calendar clashes, eh?), and on an awful, wet night. Still, it was a lot of fun.
Another friend’s birthday, another fun set. Tech issues nearly scuppered the whole DJing malarkey, but we got there in the end thanks to Simon’s skills….
The first DJing of 2019, and this time it was a rather different audience, so a very different set of songs to usual, perhaps.
The first time DJing in a while last night, where I joined Victoria Fenbane and Deathboy to DJ for my friend Poggs at his 40th birthday celebration. A raucous night that turned out to be a lot of fun to DJ.
All things must come to an end, and last night, the long-running club night JUDDER came to an end after fourteen years. It had one hell of a send-off, as appropriate for an often wild and crazy night over the years.
After a year off, and with a new venue, I assisted for a fourth time with the GVWI‘s Hallowe’en Party – by being the DJ, along with Andy Ravensable and Simon Landmine. There are also a host of photos from the evening – click on the photo to the right.
The third party I’ve DJed this year, and what has been remarkable about them has been that all three have been very different. Different locations, different people, and different music, too. The DJs here (Bob and myself – only my sets are shown here for the moment), were actually a surprise element to Tim’s birthday […]
In something of a return to DJing (aside from a few private parties recently, this was my first set in eighteen months), I donned my DJ:traumahound hat last night to join Jonny and Nathan at Tragedy >For Us< in Whitechapel, and it was great to be back.
Not all DJ sets go as planned, and this was one of them.
Simon Landmine and I were asked to DJ Karen’s 40th at the weekend, and we had a lot of fun doing so…
Part two of that trip was in a cold and windy Leeds, to mark a return trip to Carpe Noctum…
Part one of a two-day “tour” with back-to-back DJing in Cheltenham and then Leeds, it was first back to Judder for my sixth time DJing with Lee Chaos…
For the third year, I assisted with the GVWI‘s Hallowe’en Party – by being the DJ, along with Andy Ravensable.
A metal night in aid of The Queer Alternative, it was great fun and had me digging out a few things I’ve not played in a long time. And any night where I get a request for Strapping Young Lad is never bad.
A private party, this one, I and my regular DJing partner nowadays AndyRavensable did the whole evening – for our friends Holly and EJ’s 40th birthday at North Nineteen. Needless to say, at an event like this my usual musical choices were stretched in various directions!
Back for a second event, the Terminates Here night Tragedy >For Two< was great fun, and it was a pleasure to be invited to DJ at it alongside DJs Terminates Here and Nathan Nothing. My setlists are below.
DJing at Carpe Noctum, with Be My Enemy, SYD.31 and Petrol Bastard playing live too.
A return to the club playing industrial and metal, and the crossover inbetween.
