Bless Playlist 27-10-2003

Hmmm…bit of a weird night tonight. First, I got loads of requests for stuff I played last week. Which is good, cos it means people are enjoying it but I don’t really want to play the same songs every week. The playlist looks a bit samey to me because of that. I do like Throwdown and Fugazi but I don’t want to have to play them every week like clockwork. At least I managed to get away with not playing any ATDI or Mars Volta this week.

It was also a bit weird tonight because it emptied out sooner than normal. I’d assume it was because of the cacophony I was playing but I had groups of people staying till the very end, stomping along and making requests: it was more the crowd who aren’t that much into the music. Perhaps they were all feeling peaky. There’s a lot of it about.

Finally managed to play some Soft Pink Truth, M83 and Mouse On Mars. I’ve got to try and squeeze more electronic music in because when I do, it goes down well. The best reaction I got tonight was when I played the old Fischerspooner single. I had three people coming up saying they loved it and two people asking who it was. So, note to self: wedge more electronic stuff in next week. Can’t believe I went out without even one DAT Politics track! Ohhhh, the shame….
