The Null Device
Well, the DJ set went quite well. I played for around two hours in total (I can't tell exactly, as it was too dark to see, and the three pints of Guinness I had on the drinks rider probably also contributed).
I managed to play a bit of The Charm Offensive
(Just Like Bob & Terry
) and The Lollies
(their hidden track, Happy
), which was quite possibly the first time either act was played in Australia, and expose the good Seaworthy
fans to my choice of music, getting a fairly positive response. (I played a bit of the sort of ethereal/shoegazer stuff that would go well at such a gig, like Slowdive
, &c., a few other things that fit in reasonably well (The Field Mice
, and various other indie bands), a few tracks by local bands, and some odd things which people found amusing (including the cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit
recently mentioned here).)
The only major hitch is that I suspect my old Sony Discman finally gave up the ghost towards the end of the set; at least it was considerate enough to not do so at the start, though.
The bands, btw, were quite good. Seaworthy reminded me a bit of the first
Mojave 3 album in places, and Heligoland's new material is sounding quite
impressive. (Their cover of Kraftwerk's Neon Lights was also quite inspired.)
Anyway, I'll be DJing again sometime in the near future. Watch this space for details.
