Disappearing Dining Club

8th November 2010 Comments Off on Disappearing Dining Club

There were scenes of unparalleled savagery at this week’s DJ gig, the extremely hip, very now Disappearing Dining Club. The revellers and gormands assembled at City Arts and Music in City Road, London for a pop-up dinner dance. The menu included a suckling pig complete with apple in mouth. Tony got the tongue, an ear and half a cheek but stopped at the snout. Toni was shocked by the crackly life-like appearance of the creature and even refused to bite into the apple. I DJed through desert and coffee and took it off into the night.

More stuff about the music and stories on this week’s Melodica This is the start of something new. A weekly blog loosely based around the Melodica radio show with more information, pictures, links and comment. That Fuzzy Feeling: Levek – Look On The Bright Side Levek – Look On The Bright Side is my tune of the week. It’s a mellow low-fi live sounding jam about keeping things up. Levek is the brainchild of David Levesque from Florida, USA. This is modern post everything music, just doing it’s own thing, waiting for the rest of the world to catch up with it. Download a low quality MP3 of the tune for free and pre-order the limited edition red vinyl 7” from Father/Daughter Records. Look On The Bright Side. Wut? The other massive tune of the week comes from Girl Unit, it’s the first track on the show so play it now. It’s not just a massive club track it’s one of those super hooky, really annoying tunes that really should be a crossover pop hit. But, as ever, let’s hope it’s not, then we can keep the pleasure for ourselves. Clown & Sunset USB stick Ines is the new collaboration album on Nicolas Jaar’s Clown & Sunset label. It features tracks from Nico himself as well as C&S co-conspirators Nikita and Soul Keita. The album is being released as an incredibly cool USB stick that doubles as a must-have necklace.
