We’ll be playing our usual eclectic mix of music alongside bands that influenced the album. The Holy Bible 10th Anniversary DVD will also be projected throughout the evening.
Scared To Dance wouldn’t have existed without this classic LP so come down and dance to the likes of “Faster”, “Yes”, “Revol”, “Of Walking Abortion”, “Mausoleum”, “Archives of Pain” and “P.C.P.”.
Tickets for the club on New Year’s Eve are now on sale! The tickets have gone very quickly in the past two years so don’t hang about.
We’re delighted to welcome local East London club night STOP, PLAY as our guest DJs for this one. They started their night earlier this year and it’s one of our favourite clubs to go to. They’re also old friends of ours so we can’t wait to have them play records at the club for the first time.
It’s happening at our regular venue, the Moustache Bar, in Hackney from 10pm to 3am and once the tickets have sold out we will let you know of any returns via our Facebook page.
We’ll be DJing at the Allo Darlin’ gig at the Scala on Monday 24th November. They’ll be playing songs from their new album We Come Fom the Same Place.
Allo Darlin’ were formed after Australian Elizabeth Morris arrived in London and bought a ukulele from the Duke of Uke shop in Shoreditch. She began writing music and was soon joined by fellow Australian Bill Botting (bass), Paul Rains (guitar), and Michael Collins (drums). Their debut album attracted many plaudits including being named No. 2 record of the year by online retailer eMusic, and a glowing 1,200 word essay by Robert Forster of The Go-Betweens in the Australian critical magazine, The Monthly.
Their second album Europe scored 8.1 on Pitchfork, was made USA Today’s Album Of The Week, and garnered praise from Uncut, Q, NME, The Quietus and The Guardian. It was also named Rough Trade Shop’s Album Of The Month, where it went on to become the biggest selling album of the year. The band have been playlisted at BBC 6Music and have recorded sessions for Lauren Laverne, Marc Riley and John Kennedy (XFM), as well being Steve Lamacq’s personal pick for BBC Introducing. Their releases to date, along with their joyous and effervescent live shows, have seen them build an intensely loyal and ever-increasing fanbase.
