Crap! I might be away when Dizzee's on. As for the 1st, I'm supposed to be at some mental party rave.

i'm not sure how up i am for saturday, but the sidewinder thing does sound pretty unmissable.

Does Dizzee play live in London? If not, DON'T GO.

Ronan (Ronan), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 23:01 (nineteen years ago) link

why not? something against ocean or against sidewinder?

afaik this is his first london gig that i could plausibly have gone to.

ambrose (ambrose), Wednesday, 29 October 2003 09:31 (nineteen years ago) link

semtex is the world's most fucking abominable dj - i won't be going. is this who he was with in dublin, ronan. if so, i can only imagine the full and complete horror of what you had to endure. play with wylie or someone, please dizzee, please! however, i will be at the kompakt party, drunk and happy - superpitcher and mayer, yay!!!

ooh i might come on Saturday - may be at the Water Rats beforehand (!)

I have said this many times. Fabric are minions of all that is evil and will not give them a penny of my money ever again. Guestlist be damned, you still have to spend at the bar. Wankers.

Anna (Anna), Wednesday, 29 October 2003 11:56 (nineteen years ago) link

what happened Anna?

stevem (blueski), Wednesday, 29 October 2003 12:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Yeah Dave it was Semtex, half decent "great modern hiphop classics" DJ set with all the words in them and Dizzee shouting "yeah Dublin" occasionally.

He rapped Fix Up Look Sharp over something else at the end, and it was frustratingly great, but he maybe did 10 minutes continuous rapping other than that. I don't know, maybe he was drunk or nervous, but it was a crushing disappointment and I didn't pay. There were so many disgusted people afterwards and I don't blame them.

Does he play with Wylie and or have people re-produce his beats live?

Ronan (Ronan), Wednesday, 29 October 2003 12:04 (nineteen years ago) link

Oh this is ages ago when they kept me outside for over two hours (when the club was empty), meaning a missed both my interview slots and had two half pages of blank magazine to fill. The door staff were rude, thick and aggressive (even by bouncer standards). I didn't have it as bad as the two guys from the BBC behind me. They were supposed to be doing a live broadcast that was supposed to start at some point in the second hour of us waiting. I would also like to point out that this was a charity event, and the organisers were standng inside wondering where all the people were.

Anna (Anna), Wednesday, 29 October 2003 12:04 (nineteen years ago) link

they're not normally like that anna, one of my very best mates works there - i've just mailed you with something re this, so have a look, it may help in future.

Dave Stelfox (Dave Stelfox), Wednesday, 29 October 2003 12:10 (nineteen years ago) link

Thanks Dave. This was about two years ago now, my hatred of Fabric is just a slightly mental personal obsession. Ignore me everyone. Sorry Tobes, didn't mean to derail your thread.

Anna (Anna), Wednesday, 29 October 2003 13:27 (nineteen years ago) link

nice one,i was pissed off about missing dizzee rascal and going to see frank bretschneider instead,looks like i made the right decision though

robin (robin), Thursday, 30 October 2003 06:13 (nineteen years ago) link
