Unofficial Sets

Compiled here are a number of setlists from events that I provided music for but for whatever reason don’t qualify as ‘official’ Terminates Here sets, for one of the following reason:
  • The set was prerecorded
  • The event was a ‘practice’ or kit-testing session
  • The event was so poorly attended that it was a glorified practice session.
  • The set took place in a private building (private parties in regular pubs/clubs DO count)

London Gothic Meetup 200 – 24 October 2009

There was no DJ booth here, so I took requests online in advance of the event. The set was premixed into blocks of 3 or 4 songs, with gaps to allow for requests on the night. Robert once again handled the goth rock, post-punk, new wave area, thus letting me handle all the fringe styles. No-one yelled ‘Play Some Goth’ all night, so I think we got away with it.

Mittelalter Nacht – 17 April 2010

This was the first known attempt at running a mittelalter night in London – and where better to hold it than Zeitgeist, a German Gastropub south of the river. Thanks must go to Ian for organising the whole event, and also the organisers for putting on a charity buffet, which was as tasty and filling as everything else I’ve ever eaten there!
There was no DJ booth, so sets were pre-recorded. Ian and Alan provided the bulk of the music, though I did provide one hour myself, which was played between 9pm and 10pm. To keep things varied, I managed to get some neo-folk, folk rock and ethereal tunes into my own set. Here it is:
Strawbs – The Hangman And The Papist (Acoustic Version)
Fire And Ice – The Wind That Shakes The Barley
Estampie – A Voi Gente Lamia – O Virgo Spelendens
Delerium feat Medieval Baebes – Extollere

Mittelalter Nacht II – 22 October 2010

For the second time in 2010, a Mittelalter Night was held at the Zeitgeist gastropub. A larger pool of DJs were called upon this time, covering everything from folk metal to mittelalter punk. My own set included a selection of more ‘electro-mittelalter’ tracks as well as some more conventional material. For technical reasons it was pre-recorded, but was played between 9pm and 10pm on the night itself.
