Rebels Rule 70s Freakout, Glasgow, 30.12.06
Yes, I'm being allowed to DJ and a freaky 70s set no less. Come along, it'll be fun. I'll play those prog hits to shake your bits. Email me for a free pass - very limited!
Sat 30th December
**EVENT STARTS AT 10:30PM SHARP**
Launching on SATURDAY 30th DECEMBER, the night is the perfect antidote for those keen to party right through the festive season. The club's moniker, from Edinburgh glam band Iron Virgin's hit song, tells you just what this is all about. It's going against the grain, applauding the individual, digging out tunes cast to the vinyl vaults and most importantly bringing something new to the Glasgow club scene.
All girl residents The Dirty Sweet DJs will pay homage to a forgotten era downstairs with a riotous selection of punk, glam, glitter and out and out rock. Expect a gleaming versus gritty selection featuring The Pink Fairies, Roxy Music, Eno, Cherry Vanilla, Elton Motello, Bowie, The Adverts, The Slits, early B52's, Sparks, Big Star, The Faces, Iron Virgin, Wayne/Jayne County, The Stooges and more.
Groove along upstairs as Beard magazine's freakout bends your mind with a weird yet wonderful mix of oddball pop, krautrock, free jazz, pysch, prog, folk, soundtracks and country. Tune in to Captain Beefheart, Can, Neu, The Band, Selda, Sun Ra, Robert Wyatt, Augustus Pablo, Goblin and Swell Maps. For more information on Beard magazine go to www.beardmag. blogspot. com or visit www.myspace. com/beardmagazin e.
To kick off this special night we will also have a short set from fabulous glam revivalists Glasgow Glam Bangers. They class their live shows as a mix of a self contained cabaret act and anarchic glam. Glasgow Glam Bangers are Paxton Andrews (lead vocals) who purportedly sweats glitter and the mighty Piano Reeves (guitar) who is quite rightly influenced by such punk and glam luminaries as Johnny Ramone and Mick Ronson. The duo will be joined at Rebels Rule by the gloriously turned out Paul from Scunner and their quite fantastic drum machine. Go to www.myspace. com/glasgowglamb angers for more on the band.
For that festive feeling we'll be decking the halls with boughs of glitter and for this first night we're putting on a special show with disco dolls on wheels, retro visuals and nostalgic freebies for first 50 in the door. Roll right in for only £5
