Bleak Halloween Album Launch

I’d played in this venue before as part of Reptile, and I’d played plenty of slots supporting Bleak and Die Kur, but for Halloween 2016, it all came together to form the 100th DJ Terminates Here set at The Lounge (aka Nightclub Kolis) in Archway.

A line-up featuring 5 live bands, performance poet SP Howarth, an album launch for Bleak, a debut airing of the lead single from the rock musical ‘Rasputin Rocks’, and it was my job to glue it all together muscially. Here’s how it went.

Boston – Smokin’
The Zombies – Time Of The Season
Johnny Cash – I Walk The Line

<Soundcheck pause>

Nirvana – Come As You Are
Soundgarden – Black Hole Sun
Radiohead – Airbag

<Peter Von Toy>

Bat For Lashes – Horse And I
Garbage – When I Grow Up

<Hana Piranha>

Ice Ages – Endless Circle
Freudstein – Live This Lie
Velvet Acid Christ – We Have To See, We Have To Know
Leæther Strip – Halloween Theme
Skinny Puppy – Assimilate

<DJ Translight>

Rasputin Rocks – Mad Monk Rock (Debut airing!)
The Doors – People Are Strange
Screamin’ Jay Hawkings – I Put A Spell On You

<Bleak>

Chris Connelly – Stowaway
MaxDmyz – Corpse Ride
Rob Zombie – Living Dead Girl
Rammstein – Sonne

<Die Kur>

Wendy Carlos – Theme From A Clockwork Orange
Jean-Michel Jarre – Oxygene Part IV
Angelo Badalamenti – Twin Peaks Theme
Laibach – Mama Leone

(Note: The management requested that due to the late hour, the evening’s outro was to be low-key in nature – this did give the perfect chance to finish my 100th set with the same song that opened my 1st set, nearly eight years ago!).
