Bands early, dancing and that till well late yo!
Arrive Early Mo..'Fuckers!

Heidi Mortenson
Solo lady Heidi Mortenson performs a terrifyingly exciting mix tomboytronica and electrosoul dirtyrocking nutechpop on a sturdy frame of beats and vocals. She loves twists and fat bass lines and crisp sound-patches. To this she adds a mentalist flavour and lots of energy. She’s recently toured with best pal Kevin Blechdom and resides in Berlin making music with other music crazies.
Oh and she’s totally hawt to boot. Alright!

The Ape Drape Escape!
Hand picked from the cream of washed up child stars and inbred royal fodder is this nations saving grace. For the baggy, i..'ll-fitting youth of Great Britain, comes the tailored cut of nervously stitched rock n roll. The swamp sex of degenerate apes beating the jesus out of the art of ability, like Cole Porters bastard child after a night on the tiles. The new sound of Sheffield throbs and pummels, it doesn..'t stand and wait, it lurches at you like a drunken uncle. werd!

David Sugar
VORC artist of the year 2005 and International chiptune superstar, David Sugar will be dropping an 8-bit bomb on our unsuspecting motherfuckers with his own brand of folky, indy, jungley, chip tune, 180 bpm 8-bit punk! Get ready to get your skank on to live gameboy and guitar action! Check it!

between the bands and after, awe-so-me super fun dance party action with
Hosts and Residents
Daughters of the Kaos
with hot guest deejay selectas
Tapedeck (Bosh!)
+ Euan (Through Being Cool!)

Plus, we host the official stylee aftershow party for Washington State Hot Shizzles, The Gossip! Yeah, The Gossip Blud, WAY!!!!!! An aftershow party is like what R.Kelly sings about bouncing at while drinking cristal in one of his songs but dont worry kids, R.Kelly wont be there! we don..'t sell cristal either.
The Gossip will be there though, playing the sweet sweet music on the decks and everything..... and there is more warm beer than you can shake a stick at, Whoopah!
Special Rekkid playing from

Steady as she goes / Oh Jenny

Yes, it's the first Saturday of the month, and you know what that means.


Join the lovely sioux-elin, and the sometimes-lovely-if-induced-with-trinkets Euan for a night of soul, indie, rawk, perfect pop and much much more.

Saturday 4th Feb (tonight!)
@ The Orwell
382 Essex Rd, London N1.
9pm - 2am.


Ahem. Howdy. So, who managed to snare a copy of The Racontuers debut 7 inch single this week? Gonna keep mine minty fresh for years before hawking it on E-Bay to sustain my crack habit (nah, it'll be a sherbet habit. Wizz Fizz....mmmmm).If you haven't heard either of the two tracks, Store Bought Bones and Steady As She Goes, then head over to Zombies Ate My Blog for a tasty treat.

* Another series of The Simpsons on DVD, another well spent 30 quid. Check the commentaries on Sideshow Bob's Last Gleaming and Mother Simpson (especially the former, with explanations as to the many Dr Strangelove and Failsafe references contained within)

* Giant Rabbit!

If the thought of Valentine's Day and the Hallmark hell surrounding it aren't you're cup of tea, then come down to Juno on Febuary 14th for Cupid Gone. Join Electric Palimino and myself as we celebrate the death of love in the 21st century. playing records. Loudly.

Cupid Gone @ Juno
134-135 Shoreditch High Street.
7pm till late.


Album of the week
Jenny Lewis and The Watson Twins - Rabbit Fur Coat

Well, indie rock's queen has taken some time off from breaking boys hearts around the globe with Rilo Kiley. Yes, she's breaking boys hearts around the globe with The Watsons Twins instead. Lewis mines memories of her early days as a child actor (as well as more songs about love, plus a Travelling Wilburys cover to boot) to come up with an album that refuses to budge from the Major Leaguer stereo. A delight from start to finish.
