Die Kur 20th Anniversary

Die Kur marked their 20th anniversary with a gig at The Dome – it was meant to be the Underworld but for technical reasons was moved to this bigger and better venue, with a six-band line-up covering a number of different metal styles.

I was originally meant to provide DJ support for a couple of bands earlier on, but technicalities also meant I ended up support DJing the whole show. This meant an unexpected airing of several styles I seldom play. But never afraid to throw a little variety in…..

Testament – Into The Pit
Amorphis – House of Sleep

<Max Dmyz>

Cannibal Corpse – Make Them Suffer
Morbid Angel – Immortal Rites
At The Gates – Suicide Nation
Amon Amarth – Gods of War Arise

<Anoxide>

<Francesco Fonte Band>

Anthrax – Antisocial
Kreator – Pleasure To Kill
Nevermore – Final Product
Slayer – Angel Of Death

<Apothis>

Iron Maiden – The Number Of The Beast
Black Sabbath – Heaven & Hell

The Chaos Engine – Employee Of The Year
The Clay People – Awake

10 Years of DJ Terminates Here – The Credits

Djing is not a solo pursuit, and there’s many people I need to thank. There are some people that do need a special mention and they are….

  • Stephanie Dunk for giving me the start-up that set this whole story in motion.

  • Ays Kura and Richard Kaltenhauser for providing me with opportunities that really allowed me to take Terminates Here to places I never thought it would go.

  • Chris Molyneux for introducing me to the right people at key moments

  • Scott McMahon for putting up with my company longer than anyone

  • Mandy Graves for being there through all the part of this story I didn’t write about!

Next a tribute to as many of the other DJs I’ve worked with who’s names I remember…..Andy Ravensable, Robert Cowlin, Martin Oldgoth, DJX, Paul Alan, Miss Jade, James Black, Vade Retro, KG Orphanides, Alan Hicks, Miss Bleep, Wozza, DJ Shadowchaser, Dancefloor Landmine, Jo The Waiter, Demondaz, Kirlian Blue, DJ Paladin, DJ Jester, Captain Howard, DJ traumahound, Ross Liddle, Alcuin Hipwell, Nathan Nothing, DJ Kriegslok, Grimorg, Valeriun, The Baron, Shai Rothfeld, Danny Dup, Caroline Vain, Paul Sticks, The Count, DJ Ban, DJ Zaira, DJ Translight, DJ Ostfrau, Cavey Nik, Ana Necrogoth, Matt The Mo, Gertud Stein, Mike Tzulan, DJ Stromtod and DJ Chelle Helle.

And the bands I’ve offered a support slot for….Ghost In The Static, Futurefrenetic, Digital Deformation, Cease2Exist, Global Citizen, Machine Rox, System:FX, Die Kur, Ventenner, MaxDmyz, Jordan Reyne, Dreams Divide, Decayed Reflection, TerrorNation, Kommand + Kontrol, Method Cell, V2A, Saville Row, BB Blackdog, Calatrilloz, Bleak, Ghostfire, Reskizio, Paresis, Analog Angel, Deviant UK, Null White, Global Noise Attack, London SS, Drilling Spree, Themira, K-Nitrate, Ariel Undine, Ghostfire, Spacebuoy, Project Rotten, Mechanical Cabaret, Urchin Child, Cat Beat Tree, Girl From The Castle…..

(pause for breath)

…..Cold In Berlin (surely this should have been Scott?), MixE1, Amon Zero, The Infinite Three, History Of Guns, Little Death Machine, Faceless Dolls, Swivelman, Cortex Defect, Deadcell, Non-Bio, Deja Vu II (OK, OK, that’s ME!), Death Valley Scars, Splendor, Maleficent, Protafield, The Memepunks (this one was a private booking but it still counts), The Tango Pirates, Andrew King, Institution D.O.L. (Power Electronics – At Last!), Lizard Smile, Invasion of Female Logic, Pantser Fabriek, Peter Von Toy, Hana Piranha, DJ Translight (the live project this time!), Grimbergen, STAB Electronics, Triarii, MDS.51, Schramm, Akalotz, Spankraght, Special Love and Toxic Shock. Also thanks to Black Light Ascension – who (amazingly) I’ve never directly DJ supported but have been part of the story nonetheless!

Thanks also to the venues that hosted Terminates Here-branded events – Aces and Eights, Hope and Anchor, Dirty Dicks (sadly no longer in the music game), Elixir Bar (ditto), The Urban Bar and last but certainly not least Nightclub Kolis!

And finally I need to thank everyone not already listed who were part of the story via turning up, dancing, requesting tunes, working the door and the bar, getting the PA working (too right!), engineering the sound, giving out the fliers or simply promoting the events, the bands, the DJs and the scene as a whole. This is just as much for all of you as everyone I’ve listed so far.

It really is the end now.  If you came in part-way through, you might want to go back to the Intro.
