Alternative Bring’n’Buy Sale – September 2014

After two months off DJing, I returned back to the Alternative Bring’n’Buy sale, once again joined by Scott McMahon (now working under the name ‘DJ The Scott’), for our longest day of DJing yet. Today’s set included a number of bands that had made a mark on the UK live scene during August, plus at least one that should have but didn’t (come back Pitchies, all is forgiven!).

Set 1 – 10:20am-11:45am

Neo-folk for set up, some downtempo electronics to cure any hangovers, and then onto the minimal melodic synth thing that I’ve discovered works particularly well at this time of morning.

:Wumpscut: – Angel
Coph Nia – The New Oath
Blood Axis & Les Joyeaux De La Princesse – Foile Verte
Sieben – Love’s Promise
Dernière Volonté – Le Poison
Rome – To Die Among Strangers
Jordan Reyne – The Shadow Line
Portishead – Numb
Xingu Hill – Core Illness
Scorn – Weakener
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross – Pieces From The Whole
Echo West – In Pop We Trust
Iioioioii – Stardust
No Comment – Back In The 80s (Maxi Version)
Carpe Diem – Dream On
Eleven Pond – Watching Trees
Martial Canterel – You Today
Sturm Café – Koka Kola Freiheit
Welle:Erdball – Der Flipperkönig
Mr.Kitty – Insects
Auto-Auto – Toadboy
The Faint – Agenda Suicide

Set 2 – 1pm-2pm

Despite focusing on older EBM and dark electro in club sets these days, this event is about variety, so I dug out some of the lesser-played (by me) ‘oontz’ material, too.

Front 242 – Flag
Die Krupps – Robo Sapien
Eco – Hass Und Liebe
Project Pitchfork – Alpha Omega
Velvet Acid Christ – We Have To See We Have To Know
Juno Reactor – God Is God
Mentallo + The Fixer – Tachyon
Enter + Fall – Push Enter + Fall Down
X-Fusion – The Dungeon Of Reality
Tamtrum – Abort The Pope
XP8 – Das Licht
Seabound – Hooked
Covenant – The Men
Informatik – Something To Believe In

Set 3 – 3pm-4pm

Scott handled the post-punky side of goth, thus leaving me with various 90s and 00s rockier material, with a metallic twist at the end.

Suspiria – Allegedy, Dancefloor Tragedy
Squid – Endgame
Midnight Configuration – Sinister, Sinister
Bella Morte – Find Forever Gone
Breath Of Life – Bad Race
Still Patient? – Chameleon
Cancer Barrack – Cancer Barrack
The Beauty Of Gemina – Haddon Hall
Lacrimosa – Durch Nacht Und Flut (Club Version)
ASP – Ich Will Brennen
Staubkind – Dein Engel Schweight
In Extremo – Küss mich
Eluveitie – A Rose For Epona
Tyr – Hold The Heathen Hammer High
Die Kur – The Order Of Things To Be

5pm-5:30pm – Jonny vs Scott Tag Team

Actually, this ended up as more of a ‘England vs USA’ Tag Team (not being sufficient amounts of Scottish punk to hand for Scott to show his background)……

Cock Sparrer – Take ‘em All
Blondie – X-Offender
Cockney Rejects – Oi Oi Oi
Dead Kennedys – California Uber Alles
Ian Dury – Sex and Drugs and Rock’n’Roll
Lou Reed – Vicious

With that done, it was over the road to Aces and Eights to continue with our Open Request List event…..
