Wild Mood Swings in review

by craig

The second Wild Mood Swings DJ party was on May 29th and was fun, despite the nude violence.

I don't remember what I played for my second set as it was 5am and I'd had a few shochus, but here's what I think I played for the first set: (links go to YouTube videos)

* Mohammed Rafi - Jaan Pehechaan Ho (originally from the 1966 soundtrack of the Bollywood movie Gumnaam, and became popular from Ghost World soundtrack 2001)

* Tiga - Shoes (Canadian electro. From the album Ciao! 2009)

* Yamasuki - Kono Samourai (From the fantastically weird album Le Monde Fabuleux Des Yamasuki 1971)

* The Apples In Stereo - Go (from one of my favourite albums, The Discovery of a World Inside the Moone 2000)

* オーロラ三人娘 - クールな恋 (1969? Originally by ザ・ゴールデン・カップス. You may know this 巨人の星 version from the opening of ブラックバラエティ)

* Dan Le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip - Snob (British hip-hop. From The Logic Of Chance 2010. The lyrics of the song were appropriate for this event - “Stop being a snob with your music”)

* Fabulous Souls - Take Me (Some great soul-funk, 1971, from Peanut Butter Wolf's Jukebox 45's 2002)

* The Lodger - The Good Old Days (Fine indie-pop. From Life Is Sweet 2008)

* New Order- True Faith (Not the most original choice, I know. From Substance 1987)

* Tanlines - Z (I love their new album, Settings 2010. Lofi electronic)

* LCD Soundsystem - Time To Get Away (Not from their new album, but a great track which somehow worked well mashed up with the Tanlines track. From Sound Of Silver 2007)

The night started off quietly with everyone just enjoying the eclectic tunes being played, some dancing, and as the night progressed, more people arrived, more drinks were consumed, and more and more dancing ensued. Good times. However, sometime after midnight, a drunk chinpira in a suit turned up. Before long, he started threatening people and took all of his clothes off! Finally, the staff managed to get him outside where he continued the same behaviour. Some frightened cops came and finally managed to take him away. Luckily, the guy was too drunk to cause anyone any harm.

Thanks to everyone who came. Look out for Volume 3 soon, perhaps at a different venue.
