I put on a night called Disco Nectar which started in the Model Inn with Orgue Electronique then went to Tafod before ending up at the Basement under Ten Feet Tall. Was fun but we struggled with the monthly residency at times...

No! Just this one  Grin

I might delete this post if it's just going to encourage a torrent of jibes and abuse. Would be pretty pointless otherwise...
8  General / The Forum / Hooters in Cardiff? on: August 11, 2010, 23:10:20
Hey there Bristol,

I was wondering if anyone's heard the news that American chain bar, Hooters, are currently making a license application in Cardiff. If you've never heard of this company then it's a fast food restaurant/chain bar with a twist. They only employ female waitresses of a certain body type who must dress in a skimpy uniform - tight tank top and tiny shorts. See http://www.hooters.com

A lot of people in Cardiff are campaigning against this place opening here as we feel it is exploitative and discriminatory with no relevance to the modern age. The US employment contract stipulates that sexual innuendo and sexual jokes are part of job and Hooters waitresses must sign a disclaimer saying they're happy with this before starting.

 I was just wondering what the mood is in Bristol and how people on this forum would feel about a similar place opening in your city. I know that there's a Hooter's in Nottingham that mainly attracts large stag parties but campaigns in Sheffield and Southend successfully kept them out.

Some have argued that there are already lap dancing clubs in the city and that Hooters is just a bit of fun. However, the main concern is that these types of brands normalise sexual objectification and bring it in to the main stream. This gives children and young people the message that objectification is fine leading to the increased sexualisation of society. There are are proven links between objectification and sexual harassment and in extreme cases, physical assault.

What do people think? There's also a Facebook group if you wish to get involved in the discussion and show your support. http://www.facebook.com/#!/group.php?gid=131744110201689&ref=ts

Myself, I'm really concerned about this American brand infiltrating the UK.

9  General / The Forum / CARDIFF: DISCO NECATR vs. BODY HAMMER Sat16.04@Undertone on: April 24, 2009, 23:34:02

This month, Disco Nectar teams up with London's almighty Body Hammer bringing you the best Electro, Acid, Jack and Disco that you'll probably ever hear. With BH resident and promoter, Joe Hart, having played at the launch party last year, and the two nights booking legends such as Legowelt and Orgue Electronique resepectively, it was only a matter of time before we hooked up.

The brains behind Body Hammer, an underground night in the real sense of the word currently taking place at secret late-night E2 jackin' zones and office blocks. Joe's sets are heavily influenced by the sound of WBX Radio, early Italo and The Hague Electro scene. He is also a BLOC resident; you may have seen him filling in for Metro Area during one of the prime slots at this year's festival.

Paul is a resident at Body Hammer as well as one half of experimental techno duo, Emptyset, releasing on Future Days and Caravan. Originally from Wales, we welcome him back to unleash some of his fine Acid House records on the citizens of Cardiff.

Disco Nectar residents:

Lee Marshall who releases warm electronica and bassy electro on Urban Planning Records is back, but this time as a DJ.

He's probably being playing records since before you were born, so listen up kids. Electrofunk, Italo, Hip-House and Acid.

Former promoter of Reload and Machine Meadow, he's played at every wedding, fourtieth birthday party and village disco imaginable but vinyl freak C++'s first true love is electro, and doesn't he know it. He might play dubstep if you ask nicely :-)

Get ready for some Booty goodness for Disco Nectar's March instalment.
We're thrilled to welcome DJ Guy, Europe’s leading booty turntablist and the man behind the Global Fire record label for what may be Cardiff's first proper Ghettotech night. Greatly influenced by Detroit DJs such as DJ Godfather, DJ Assault and the late Disco D, he’s known for his fun quick-fire mixing and genre-crossing sets.

He was formerly one half of the Non Stop DJs duo who came to the attention of booty fans across the globe in 2003 with their infamous “All Cylinders” mix, featuring over 112 tracks mixed, scratched and juggled together. In 2004 Non Stop DJs released their first 12?, the “Furious EP”, to a huge response for a debut release, with airplay on the UK’s BBC Radio 1, DJ support around the world from the likes of DJ Godfather and DJ Rolando, heavy radio play in Detroit, and electro & techno heavyweight Dave Clarke placing the EP at the #1 spot in his electro chart.

Check out some of his mixes for yourself:

We're also pleased to welcome PLACID who is something of a legend on the Bristol party scene having been Djing for over 20 years. He is currently a resident at Bristol clubnight under_score and has not long completed a US tour. PLACID has also recently played at I LOVE ACID and BLEEP 43 in London. Expect your favourite Acid House tunes mixed in with some more obscure traxx as well as some electro and disco. Visit his webiste for an extensive mix archive:

Disco Nectar will now take place on the third Saturday of every month at The Basement (under 10ft Tall). Here's what's lined up for the first instalment at the new venue.

Lee Underpass
(Urban Planning Records)

Underpass writes fractured electro and warm electronica.The Underpass sound is dense, atmospheric, often claustraphobic, pulling in strands of detroit electro, contemporary electronica and the nascient strains of dub, underpinned with a b-boy sensibility.

His incendiary live laptop sets have taken him around the country, with the likes of Cylob [warp], Lektrogirl [rephlex], Max Tundra [warp], Kode 9 [rephlex], Acid Casuals [novamute], Kutchi [adcam], Boep [adcam], Sh!tmat [planet mu], Con Brio, Bovaflux, Rich Thair [of red snapper], Steve Hellier [death in vegas] and Johnny Boy [novamute] amongst others.

Planet Mu’s Queen Bee of the 303 to land in Cardiff…

After the successful launch party, Disco Nectar returns at a new venue on September 20 with another quality line-up guaranteed to make you dance. Headlining the second instalment of electronic brilliance is Planet Mu’s Syntheme aka Lou Woods from Brighton. At only 23, she is fast becoming an “ACID legend” (Boomkat) and RubaDub have called her music “top stuff that will please anyone who isn’t a po-faced goon who doesn’t like having fun”. Her tunes feature sophisticated acid and bass lines upon solid drum sequences, ambient soft synth layers, and occasionally heavily-edited audio samples. Syntheme brilliantly fuses very fresh sounds with the robust and harmonic foundation of 90s acid.

She has several releases to her name on WeMe and Planet Mu, and remaining typically elusive, her new project under the moniker Kobi, will be out on Balkan Vinyl this month. Syntheme has rocked crowds Europe-wide including a string of livesets at festivals such as BLOC, Triptych and Bangface. She is not to be missed.

We’re equally proud to present homegrown talent, The Hidden Persuader, as we eagerly await his first (and fully deserved) vinyl release on Berlin label Bass4Bots. As well as live shows across the UK, THP has had extensive airplay including a Radio 1 session for Rob da Bank’s One Music show in 2006. Expect relentless, funk-fuelled electrobass with distinct elements of the Drexcyian Detroit sound from the talented Access Tonal Communications operative.

Our residents, C++, who was born with records fixed to his hands, and electro veteran, Synchronoise, will spin a mixture of oldskool classics and new choons spanning Acid, Electro and Italo.

Disco Nectar is a Cardiff based club night and collective committed to bringing you some of the best live electronic music around whilst supporting the local scene.

yeh i had a great time!

unfortunately saturday i hit the rum and zoots foolishly hard in my excitement and fell asleep from Jackmate onwards Doh! Doh! Doh! Doh! Doh! Doh! Doh! Doh! - timing couldn't have been worse.  i thought i'll just close my eyes for half an hour and recharge in time for Andy Stott onwards, then next thing i know its 6am, and i'm bewildered and gutted! Sad

still a wonderful weekend though Smiley

Gutting! This is why I avoided naps throughout the weekend! My sleep pattern is now totally messed up!!!
26  General / The Forum / Nice Little Groovers on: August 13, 2008, 02:49:12

Dedicated to the following musical genres
- cod funk
- cod disco
- disco not disco
- white boy funk
- balearic guff
- McCartney
- cheeky little numbers
- mild grooves with a whiff of cheese
- Ian Dury
- cod reggae
- b-side belters
- freakbeat from the non-freaky
- funky folk
- phat pholk
- charity shop gems

Share your sweet little tip-offs with fellow diggers and groove hounds!


The perfect nice little groover would:
- have a nice little groove (it must be nice)
- be on a b-side that has a ghastly a-side
- or be the only track worth playing on a bobbins album
- be recorded by someone who isn't remotely "funky"
- be recorded by someone you'd NEVER expect
- tear up the CLUB in a polite fashion
- magically make people abandon new pints in the CLUB
- cost no more than a pound
- benefit the needy when purchased
If it ticks most of these boxes, it's in.


This is not about "guilty pleasures". Nothing of guilt in an honest groove.

(If you mention something just plain ghastly, you'll be ignored or worse punished. Hah hah. Unless you can convince everyone of the merits of, say, that particular Bonnie Tyler b-side.)


Here are some "hits" from nice little groovers land, so you can get in the groove. No particular order - except McCartney at the top.

Paul McCartney - Check My Machine
Paul McCartney - Let 'Em In
Paul McCartney - Temporary Secretary [he invented Detroit]
Ian Dury - Spasticus Autisticus [blocked by the Beeb]
Ian Dury - Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 3
Was Not Was - Wheel Me Out
Tom Jones - Looking Out My Window [altogether now.. "break!"]
Hall and Oates - I Can't Go For That (No Can Do) [super]
Talking Heads - Pull Up The Roots
Talking Heads - I Zimbra [and so on...]
B52s - Mesopotamia
Carly Simon - Why [produced by Chic]
Herb Alpert - Rise [sampled by Biggie]
Imagination - Just An Illusion [invented George Michael]
Aswad - Warrior Charge
David Bowie - Let's Dance
Rolling Stones - Miss You [of course]
Rolling Stones - Emotional Rescue
Chicago - Streetplayer
Chicago - I'm A Man
Paul Nicholas - Lamp Lighter
Madonna - Everybody (dub)
Visage - Frequency 7 [multiple versions]
The Smiths - Barbarism Begins At Home [quite funky]
Cat Stephens - Was Dog A Doughnut
Shirley Bassey - Spinning Wheel [surely bassy?]
Simple Minds - Theme For Great Cities
The Slits - I Heard It Through The Grapevine

Did anyone go to this? It was absolutely brilliant. The line up was amazing but the highlights for me were Sven Weissman (great Dj and probably one of the friendliest people you could ever meet), Body Code (his set rendered me temporarily speechless), Andy Stott, Move D and Shackleton.  Grin  Hour upon hour of carpet dancing!

It was a shame about the weather but it didn't manage to spoil the weekend as the music was inside and the campsite was really close to the hall. Some sun would have been great but not to worry.

I've put loads of pics up here:


28  General / The Forum / Skip Diving on: July 15, 2008, 23:02:25
I'm seriously thinking about seeing if I can go for the rest of summer without buying any food and just taking it out of supermarket skips. Has anyone tried this before? I hear you can find some good stuff. Not just food but DVD players, shower gel etc. Seems like a sensible way of reusing things that would be otherwise thrown away and saving some cash at the same time.

Also, what are the legal ramifications if you're caught?

 Don't forget this is happening on SATURDAY this week! It would be great if a few people from Bristol showed up - Orgue Electronique hasn't played in the South West before - not my knowledge anyhow...

PS- Venn festival was excellent. The highlight for me, by a long way, was Errorsmith. Best thing I've seen live for ages.
