some photos what i took lately on my rubbish camera phone
i was out in dublin’s sugar club last night, i was under the impression that i was going to see a dj spin some 90s tunes. i was wrong. what i saw was a band play everyone’s favourite 90s hits LIVE (with some sort of sampler yes, but for the most part live). wow, what a night. i’m as snobby as the next blogger, but this was just unadulterated FUN. which is something us muso blogger types often forget about in the name of cred. or something. anyway, if you catch wind of smash hits playing near you any time soon, hit ’em up. i mean, they’re called smash hits! how awesome!
i was the only dj at soundcheck tonight who didn’t play the original zero… but anyway, i pretty much enjoyed tonight’s set more than any other in recent memory. damn happy. funny that a tune that was almost an afterthought was the best received – loads of people came up to me during needy girl, including one girl who wanted to hear momma’s boy. i deliberately left fancy footwork at home because i knew i’d be playing needy girl… anyway – this is what it looked like.

i also threw on modest mouse’s tiny cities made of ashes at the end of new amusement‘s set (not without encouragement). good night this was. and sarah played yes! quality.
about to start a mix that will represent these tunes. hold on, holy ghost style.
an old friend of mine alerted me to his blog today, called ramblings of an irishman. he’s got some very astute observations on dublin life and culture today, and all of this is contextualised by his photography, which is generally excellent. his and a few others will be going along with the furniture here in due course, but you’ll have to bear with me while i sort out the housekeeping.
