After last week being quite laid-back and chilled, I assembled a load of appropriate tracks.
Got there – and it was busy! Gah!
Naah, I’m not being serious, I enjoyed the night. 🙂 But I had to pull a load of less chilled stuff out of my memory. And it was request mania tonight too. I had a lot of metal requests and I hadn’t brought much out so I wheeled out some old faves. Ditto emo. So, more repeats than last week but I still managed to wedge in loads of tracks that I’ve never ever played before.
It made me very happy that people were coming up asking about tracks I’d just played. One bloke said he’d gone out and ordered the Cylob Rewind 12″ after he heard me playing it the other week, which I’m dead chuffed with. It shows that there are people out there who do want to hear more than just arsingly obvious chart schmindie (step forward White Stripes and Strokes).
Tonight’s top new tune was Ulrich Schnauss’ beautiful ‘On My Own.’ Haunting stuff and at least three people asked about it. Top old tune was John Barry’s ‘Hit Or Miss.’ Twanging excellence!
