Do the Dü's never been interested in the mode du jour, just in getting its nuts out and having a disco. But at the moment, everyone's preoccupied with one thing - kids. Cameron did want to hug them, now he just wants to punch them, while politicians in general are desperate to grab the youth by their fluro lapels and stick the gun of good prospects up their jacksie and pull the trigger till it goes "click".
But the kids are all right. If by "all right" you mean tearing up the style book (musical and aesthetic) and putting on some of the most care-free nights of abandon (body and sanity) then they're bob on. Fresh from Global Gathering, Get Loaded in the Park, Creamfields and a rather cosy Field Day, Zombie Disco Squad are coming to freshen up the Medicine Bar. To call Zombie Disco Squad "kids" is an utter fallacy to be honest, but they embody the spirit of lurid colours and sweaty palms pointed at the ceiling, and their jacking remixes and spot-on mixtapes (‘I Wish I Was Black and Gay in 1985,’ or ‘Work the Third Leg,’ anyone?) are testament to how frighteningly exciting they are at the moment.
Slamming together an unapologetic mixture of Baile Funk, Fidget House, Cosmic Disco, and Electro, Zombie Disco Squad have been ruining Shoreditch’s trendy Catch Bar for some time with their Get Rude night. And with the Janitors' equally unapologetic proclivity for inspiring hands in the air, sweat on the walls et cetera, things can only get ruder.
So, Dü a rude, yeah?
Incidentally, we thought it only right to ask a "kid" what they thought of Zombie Disco Squad. Wide-eyed, the five-year old said:
"Zombies? No, I'd hate to have a disco with zombies. What an infernal thing."
The child is an idiot.
