On the night we have a very special live percussion set from DAVE BARBAROSSA of Adam & The Antz / Bow Wow Wow fame- the Man behind all those amazing drums... I Want Candy, Dirk Wears White Sox... a legend.
Talking of legends... I'm also very proud to announce RUSTY EGAN, original Dj at New Romantic club THE BLITZ... Rusty is also a drummer, was a key collaborator with Visage, and responsible for classic Balearic 12" Burundi Black 'Burundi black' - He was also THE selector down at the Camden Palace back in the day - so he is back playing on home turf !
If this wasn't enough I've roped in my favourite DJ on the planet - Mr ANDREW WEATHERALL - doing a special 9 o'clock drop style set, he does this sound better than anyone I know, and this will be a treat.
Next up I have the best new DJ i've heard in about 10 years... Neil Dunn aka 'Phoreski' - After doing the balearic/trainspotter thing obsessively since '88 and all that, I considered myself knowledgeable-ish on all things chugging and cosmic..... then I DJ alongside Phoreski and he has me asking what every track is ....I don't know a thing he's played, but it's the best set I've heard in ages.... Add to this his awesome productions and you have a star in the making. If you haven't heard PHORESKI spin yet - then now is the time.
Alongside this lot - I will be doing a special DUBS DEX & FX DJ set, dusting off the guitar pedals and tape delays with my RAT SALAD re-edit partner Rupert Lyddon of Grand National, and our 'Jam Jah' Jamaican MC -TROY FORTRESS.
So people.... dig out your pegs, waffle jumpers, facepaint, frizzy fringes & jumpsuits.....
Rest a hat with a really big peak on the back of your head....
And head down to W I G W A M for some real fun !
