Actually, the rest of the night was pretty good. Very good voibe in there and whatever that last tune The Hacker played was amazing.

Agoria were a proper oldskool-fest, weren't they? What with LFO, Strings of Life, that big Trans Europe Express thing and whatever that trancey record was that Rob went mental over. Very nice indeed.

And for the first time ever I've made it home awake on the night bus two nights running.

Poor Vitalic, and poor us :(

such a pity, as until that point it was pretty ace as Matt said, but after the announcement the vibe died and the music got progressively shit (Marilyn Manson, fuck's sake).

The Lex (The Lex), Sunday, 1 May 2005 09:53 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Did Agoria play after the Hacker then? We were stuck at the back trying not to knock over some bloke filiming for a french TV channel, so couldn't see much.

I assume we left after The Hacker, cos he finished on Flesh & Bone (well, a much messed up version of it anyway...). Great night though, from the sounds of it we left for bagels at the right time!

Can't believe his laptop was nicked, poor bloke.

B-b-but... epic Kraftwerk mixes! I disagree with you on the vibe dying actually - I had a great time in the last couple of hours, but for a lot of that it only seemed to be me, Marianna and Trish on the dancefloor from the ILX crowd so no idea where the rest of you were.

(xpost - Agoria were both before and after the Hacker. There was a lot of fannying around onstage when Le Onzieme Marche was played and that might have been when the laptop went missing, I think).

Also, what was that record (played twice last night) that's one high-pitched stuttering woop wooping noise? Its fantastic and I've heard it out before and I'm sure its really famous but I can't quite place it.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Sunday, 1 May 2005 10:31 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Jesus, so the laptop was nicked FROM the club?! Thats harsh.

The "high-pitched stuttering woop wooping noise" could be Roman Flugels Gehts Nocht? Fits that description anyway, and god knows everyones hammering it at the moment.

MattR (MattR), Sunday, 1 May 2005 10:36 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

The laptop was nicked from the stage! In full view of everyone! Not that anyone actually noticed.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Sunday, 1 May 2005 10:57 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Man, that sneak thief deserves to watch his own balls slowly roasting on an open fire before being forced to eat them.

we tried to dance too but I couldn't get into it, my mind was like one big :(

Initially they seemed to be doing a good job in a horrible situation but it really deteriorated I thought - Marilyn Manson's cover of 'Personal Jesus' was just a total nadir.

We listened to the Vitalic album at the house party, it was scant consolation.

The Lex (The Lex), Sunday, 1 May 2005 16:14 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I didn't even notice it was the Manson Personal Jesus at the time. Possibly because my mind was going "durr de durr de durr de durr de durr" in a Monstertruckdriver stylee throughout the entire track.

PS - Anyone want to buy a laptop? One careful owner, scuzzy noise key a bit worn out, otherwise mint.

This thread is so beautiful.

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Monday, 2 May 2005 12:46 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

DFA night at The Social, tomorrow or more accurately today, that is to say TUESDAY MAY 3. The Juan MacLean, Tim Goldsworthy (who slept with someone I know last week even though he is old and looks like a physics student; she says she doesn't recognise him) and Jon Galkin.

7-12pm, FREE. yes, FREE. I will be there, who else is going?

I would pay top dollar to see Vitalic Unplugged.

So hey what is on this weekend?!

stevem in nyoik, Monday, 2 May 2005 22:39 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

well, that was probably the most fun i've had on a massively disappointing night for a while. i thought the music and voibe were fine really, even after the announcement. tbh people didn't seem that bothered!

i came on here to ask about the same tune i think Matt DC is asking about, it is a monster and i've heard it loads recently!

pete b. (pete b.), Tuesday, 3 May 2005 08:37 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

It sounds like "Geht's Noch?", is it really high pitched and squeaky and repetetive?

Like the kind of tune you'd get really deathly sick of? haha just messing, it is really good!

Ronan (Ronan), Tuesday, 3 May 2005 08:44 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

your friend doesn't recognise someone she slept with? also, fyi at least a few of the ppl from the aforementioned label (incl. the two named) read at least ilm.

lauren (laurenp), Tuesday, 3 May 2005 09:09 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

is there anyone that doesn't read this thing? (hi mum!)

did you make the 5 o'clock train? i was on the 6! i was glad to get back here!

charltonlido (gareth), Tuesday, 3 May 2005 09:31 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

yes, we made it after a few hourse wandering around the city centre. i bought some miu miu sunglasses, which was pretty much the highlight of the day.

lauren (laurenp), Tuesday, 3 May 2005 09:36 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

she didn't recognise him as being Tim G. neither would I!

The Lex (The Lex), Tuesday, 3 May 2005 10:21 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Oh. This sounds like it might have been fun. More fun than watching the police raiding houses in Brixton. I went to a NOYZE gig instead. Oh wait, no, that was last night, I'm confused.

Lapdog Shoesnog (kate), Tuesday, 3 May 2005 10:22 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I'm sure I posted the DFA heads-up last week. Anyways, should see some of you there.

Cut Copy are back as of tomorrow:

Wednesday May 4
Pure Groove Instore
Holloway Road [Near Archway tube]

They're also on at Sonic Mook Experiment on Thurs and supporting Mylo everywhere else. I'm very keen to see them at Hyde Park at t'end of June, mind.

The Irrelevant Man (Negativa) (Barima), Tuesday, 3 May 2005 13:23 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I might be up for that Cut Copy thing actually. Work looks like being hectic tomorrow so it all depends what time I get out.

Steve - I have plans for this weekend which you are welcome to be part of. Email me when you get back in the country.

Good stuff happening this weekend...

Erol Alkan @ Our Disco, Plastic People, Friday 06/05/05.

Go!Zilla Saturday May 7th 10pm-4am £10 before 11.30pm, £12 after NUS £8 all night

Optimo (Twitch), Mark Moore, George Demure, James Priestley
The Boudoir, 47 Chiswell Street (off City Road), EC1

Plus Out Hud are playing a free show Saturday May 21st at The Marquee, Leicester Square from 7pm as part of that Budweiser thingy. There's a couple more interesting free nights they're doing as well as part of that Bud Rising thing plastered all over the place, though all the stuff you have to pay for looks godawful.

MattR (MattR), Thursday, 5 May 2005 13:32 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i'll definitely be out at le boudoir, though not til late.

lauren (laurenp), Thursday, 5 May 2005 15:01 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Matt when are you going to come over and say hello at one of these things. You always seem to be shadowing the ILX London dancing crowd! (Ditto Pete B as well as far as I can tell).

Matt DC (Matt DC), Thursday, 5 May 2005 18:51 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

So I'm in town, and in theory up for some dance action. Is Erol Alkan The Plan for tonight, and is anyone interested in The Plan?

Andrew Farrell (afarrell), Friday, 6 May 2005 11:32 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

So what in the name of Beltram's balls is Go!Zilla?

$V£N! (blueski), Friday, 6 May 2005 11:37 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Go! Zilla! is the blokes from Secret Sundaze new monthly. Not too sure whats going on next month with them, but they've always been playing pretty decent stuff, and this weekend looks ace.

Our Disco got a mention on Radio One last night, not too sure if it'll affect turnout tonight, certainly did last time it happened. Doors around 11ish there anyway - if I can work out anyone's secret identity there I'll probably shout up...

MattR (MattR), Friday, 6 May 2005 13:55 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I "danced" too much yesterday and slept too little last night and walked too much today => probably no dancing tonight after all, sorry.

Andrew Farrell (afarrell), Friday, 6 May 2005 16:58 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I've lost my will to dance. Ergo, I've also lost my only hobby.

The Irrelevant Man (Negativa) (Barima), Friday, 6 May 2005 19:00 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

What about your flower pressing on Sunday mornings?

$V£N! (blueski), Friday, 6 May 2005 20:53 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Clearly between 1.45-3am I will be torn between Miss Kittin and Virus Syndicate, oh no!

Also, on June 1 from 7pm, Token Girl's Lovelife at 93 Feet East promises to be excellent. My amazingly talented and gorgeous friend Anna-Marie will be playing "grrrl guitar hip-pop electrofash". The last time she DJed was at a house party on Saturday, and she was SUPERB.

how can this thread have been so silent, when things have been so...hectic.

as for the next couple weekend, i dont actually know. my inner doctor is recommending rest, but, we'll see

charltonlido (gareth), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 10:22 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I may have temporarily caught dansephobia from Barms.

Sociah T Azzahole (blueski), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 10:25 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I shall be going to the Sonar thingy but probably eaving after Jamie liddell. Might be going early doors to catch russel haswell as well.

Hey, I don't know what you're talking about. I ain't never even looked at another guy.

Alex, can I be your plus 1? If not, no matter, a cold is coming to finish me off soon.

The Irrelevant Man (Negativa) (Barima), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 10:40 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

"grrrl guitar hip-pop electrofash".

Me, I'm liking the sound of that. What day is June 1? Will I be back from Liverpool?

The Square Root Of Negative Two (kate), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 10:42 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Kate, June 1 is a Wednesday. I should think you would be back from Liverpool unless you get stranded there for half a week!

Barima, yes you can be my +1. I will email or text tomorrow re: times and places to meet.

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 10:52 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Sorry, I get confused with these bank holiday things.

But I will try to be there. Even though I've got no money at all and should stay home, I need to dance it all out.

The Square Root Of Negative Two (kate), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 10:53 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Oh man, that reminds me that I might go to Brum for Bank Hols. I think there's a party at the Custard Factory.

Negativa, True Believer (You know you love it when I'm dressed in drag) (Barima), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 11:14 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Kate, Token Girl's Lovelife will be FREE! And apparently 80s Almodovar flicks will play in the background.

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 14:48 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I'd be surprised if I'll have any energy on June 1 after going back to the old school, eating too much and hitting on my brother's female mates.

Re: tomorrow Barima - apparently we are going to Wired Women at the Spitz first. I don't know what time this will begin or end, but personally I don't think Fabric will be necessary until Jamie Lidell at midnight. Then it gets hectic.
