My DJ set

I DJed between sets at the Light Music Club gig tonight, at the Builders Arms.

(before the first band; mostly old favourites. I was saving the newer stuff for when people showed up.)

  • Electrelane - Love Builds Up
  • Yo La Tengo - You Can Have It All
  • Slowdive - In Mind (Reload remix)
  • Parsley Sound - Platonic Rate
  • Black Box Recorder - England Made Me
  • Minimum Chips - Furniture
  • Ninetynine - San Pedro de Atacama
  • Prop vs. Stereolab - Statice
  • The Random Numbers - Mornington Crescent

(between the first band and Light Music Club:)

  • Blueboy - Marble Arch
  • Belle & Sebastian - I Fought In A War
  • The Radio Dept. - Bus
  • Slowdive - Celia's Dream

(after Light Music Club's set; before Duckdive; I seem to have gone into a bit of an English indie-pop vein, for the most part, anyway:)

  • The Field Mice - Willow
  • Black Box Recorder - Swinging
  • The Radio Dept. - Slottet #2
  • The Clientele - Reflections After Jane
  • Harvey Williams - Eurostar
  • Blueboy - Boys Don't Matter
  • Spearmint - A Different Lifetime (a nice long one, during which I took the opportunity to talk to people)
  • Morrissey - The First Of The Gang To Die

(from after the Duckdive set to until everybody left:)

  • Clag - Goldfish
  • Minimum Chips - Bouncing Boy With A Bubble
  • Keckle - Elephant Song
  • Lush - Lovelife
  • The Hummingbirds - Blush
  • The Field Mice - White
  • The Guild League - Panic (their Smiths cover)
  • Belle & Sebastian - The Boy With The Arab Strap
  • The Smiths - I Want The One I Can't Have
  • Pulp - Babies
  • The Bodines (that's the British C86 band, not the Australian one) - Heard It All
  • New Order - Leave Me Alone

The first band (whose name escapes me; they may have been called Caravan Park or something similar) were interesting in places, although perhaps a bit on the fatbeard side of things. Light Music Club were excellent as usual. And Duckdive made pleasant enough jangly guitar pop with trumpets and accordions and instrument swapping.

Aside: the Builders Arms has the most stereotypically gay DJ booth I've ever been in; the walls are festooned with plastic penises and a 7" copy of Kylie Minogue's I Should Be So Lucky. Fabulous!
