Phew. It's all got a bit hot and sticky ain't it!? While some chose to roll around in the dried mud at last weekends Glastonbury, here in Nottingham things got pretty dirty too as we invited Electric Chair legend Luke Unabomber to our monthly soiree for a bit of a disco. Turning in a firing 3.5 hour set the Unabomber smashed up Moog good and proper culminating in some fantastic end of night scenes ('Baker Street' caused some serious air saxaphone blowage on the dancefloor - shout to all the dads!) Hats off to all those that made it down and a special mention must go to Alex's mate Dean who after dancing for hours, drenched through with sweat and ravenous, attempted to buy a kebab afterwards in our local take away round the corner with half a fiver claiming it was legal tender and worth at least £2.50. Skills.
So a few things to look forward to over the next few weeks here at the Buggin' HQ that need a mention. First off Wrighty and myself are hitting the road this Friday (1st July) and heading over to The Bulls Head in Birmingham (Moseley) to lay down our usual disco-inspired nonsense. We'll be playing from 12.30am till 2am and if your at the massive Mostly Jazz Festival over the road pop in afterwards and get on the good foot.
Full details are over on the Freestyle website. Oh and they also interviewed us. Have a read > http://www.bullsheadmoseley.co.uk/soul-buggin
For all those Nottingham way Soul Buggin' will be back on Saturday 30th July at Moog where we'll be welcoming Bill Brewster to the decks. It’s been said that what Bill Brewster doesn’t know about disc jockeying is probably not worth knowing and we’re not going to argue with that. Since starting his DJ career in the late 80’s cutting his teeth playing in New York he’s played all over the shop and currently is one of the heads behind the superb Low Life parties in London. Whether it be writing columns for almost every dance rag out there, penning bible-like books on the art of the DJ (‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’) or creating hugely popular websites such as DJ History.com if it’s eclecticism, surprises, amazing unique music or sheer long-haul dedication to the dancefloor, Bill’s your man. We're looking forward to this one mightly. Usual rules apply get down before 10.30pm and get cheap entry (£3) otherwise it'll be a fiver. Keep yer eyes on this blog over the next few weeks for news of a very special pre-party too.
Taa daa for now kids!
PS - For those social networkers out there hunt down the crazy motherfucker that goes by the name of Raul Soul-Buggin. He's fashionably exotic and bloody loves a good disco. More importantly he'll keep you bang up to date with all Buggin' movements and might even give you a massage if he likes the look of you.
