DJ Terminates Here vs DJ The Scot – November 2014

It was a lot of fun last time, so DJ The Scott and myself decided to once again extend the social side of the Alt Bring’n’Buy by crossing the road, and continuing the DJing on an ‘Open Request List’ basis. We passed round sheets of paper, pencils and let the audience decide the direction the music took. Here’s (half) of what was played.

Set 1

To prove how unexpected things happen at such events, I open up with a 90s guitar rocker that would be unlikely to offend many eardrums, only for the early requests to immediately throw me back a decade to 80s new wave!

Manic Street Preachers – From Despair to Where
Depeche Mode – Shake The Disease
New Order – True Faith
Eurythmics – Missionary Man
Soft Cell – Sex Dwarf
The Damned – Eloise
Peter Murphy – Cuts You Up

Set 2

A surprising number of requests for German-language songs. This set was (mostly) for them.

Clan Of Xymox – This World
Goethes Erben – Leben Um Zu Leben
E Nomine – Mitternacht
Mantus – Keine Liebe
Rammstein – Dalai Lama
Fleischmann – Frei
Eisbrecher – This Is Deutsch ([:SITD:] Remix) – two band requests in one!
Oomph! – Der Neue Gott
The Creatures – Exterminating Angel

Set 3

Post-punk and classic rock, plenty of demand for both!

Siouxsie and the Banshees – Love In A Void
The Cure – Killing an Arab
Specimen – Hex
Talking Heads – Psycho Killer
Xmal Deutschland – Begrab Meinen Herz
The Birthday Party – Release The Bats
Generation X – Wild Youth
Patti Smith – Because The Night
Iggy Pop – Lust For Life
Guns’n’Roses – Live and Let Die
Warrant – Cherry Pie
Whitesnake – Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City
Blue Oyster Cult – (Don’t Fear) The Reaper

Closing Tag-Team Set

A bewildering final run of requests led to our closing tag-team consisting (unusually) of some quite long songs. S: indicates Scott’s selections, TH: are mine!

The Sisterhood – Giving Ground
Partly Faithful – Stop
Das Ich – Keimzeit
How To Destroy Angels – The Space In Between
Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb
Radiohead – Paranoid Android
Metallica – One
Johnny Cash – When The Man Comes Around
Wendy Carlos – Beethoviana (from ‘A Clockwork Orange’)

Alternative Bring’n’Buy Sale – November 2014

Back to where it all began, six years ago to the day, and still my only regular DJ set. Today myself and regular co-DJ ‘The Scot’ were joined by Simon Landmine (or was is ‘Claymore’?) for this particular daytime DJ set. Due to difficulties finding a key, we were late starting, explaining the curtailed early sets.

We later made up for the late start across the road at Aces and Eights, of course…..
