The Words Bloc Party normally conjures images of squares of Lino, boom
boxes, Nike Air Force Ones and Afrika Bambaattaa yelling “Rock Rock Planet
Yet this is a whole different type of Bloc Party, no longer is it just
another name for a jazzed up street barbeque. It is as most of you will know
it is also the name of one of the biggest bands in Britain at the moment,
and in this vein, Drop Names Not Bombs are officially throwing the
unofficial after party for the final night of the foursomes sell out UK
Working on the theme of something old, something new, something borrowed and
no Deacon Blue, we are proud to present Manchester legend Peter Hook. The
founding member of two of the most influential bands of modern times (Joy
Division/New Order) playing an exclusive DJ set of records that influenced
these two seminal bands, as well as a selection of what is making him smile
at the moment.
So with the old taken care of, we have also thrown together some of the
finest young (you can see where this is going with that theme I mentioned
cant you) DJ talent currently around. So DJ’s on the night include Jamie
McHugh, the current darling of the electro scene, whose remixes and tracks
are currently filling the bags of DJs such as Hernan Cattaneo and Sasha and
has recently played out as far a field as Shanghai and erm Shoreditch.
The scene’s young upstarts are also represented by south London electro
pimps, Filth and Splendor, Dirtbox Resident Alex Collings, Bete Noir founder
Rich Weller, latest Rebirth signing and resident John Donaghy and dirty lil
upstarts EJ Wagner, Tomasuchy n Name Drop himself (the self professed one
man Indie-rave party Juggernaut).
As this is the after party for the Bloc Party gig the queue will be, well,
round the Bloc, so come early, come dressed up, come loaded or just come as
you are, as we also have some great bands on the night, these must be kept
secret, as is the trend at the moment.
Normally then to finish, this is the part where we tell you, “come to our
party, we got the baddest DJ’s this side of Berlin, we got glow sticks,
laughing gas, burlesque and a midget with tourettes playing bongos and that,
basically, without a doubt, we are R the bomb!” Some of that is true, some
isn’t so you will have to come and see for yourself… I suppose?
Oh and we don’t have anything Borrowed or any Deacon Blue. Splendid!
