My Favourite DJ is playing at Cargo next week & I am so excited to see him!

His name is DJ Derek


Derek isn't your average turntablist - a former chocolate factory accountant in his 60s (at least!) with a major cardigan habit. He also MCs in Patois.

"Derek gave up his job in a chocolate factory over 25 years ago to dj in pubs and clubs to predominately black audiences He is sited as a major influence by Massive Attack and others who as young teenagers listened to his tunes through the window of the Star and Garter in Bristol where Derek had a 20 year residency Derek is a weatherspoons officiando he thinks nothing of coming up to London early for a gig then popping off on the coach to Birmingham to visit a new weatherspoons and then heading back to play that evening perhaps via two other weatherspoons on the way. He has visited over 600 of the 650 odd sites all over the country. The joys of cheap bus passes. The BBC have made two documentaries on Derek the most recent one made by BBC west had a surprise ending with Derek attending the unveiling of a plaque in his local pub (an ex Weatherspoons) to commemorate his services to the entertainment industry"

Going French For Eurovision

I heard the most amazingly bizarre news!
Sebastien Tellier (who I think is just brilliant) is going to represent France at The Eurovision Song Contest!


If you don't know about Sebastien have a listen to this

"La Ritournelle"

I saw him perform this song live a couple of weeks ago & it was amazing...

But what's he doing on Eurovision??!

He'll be performing his latest track "Divine" taken from his current album "Sexuality"

Usually Eurovision just washes over me & I don't pay it much attention, but this year I will be there! I will also be returning to my Gallic roots by backing a French win - my Gramps would be so proud! Were it not for Seb I would however be lending my support to my mum's side of the family & backing an Irish turkey called Dustin...?

Anyway, it'll be worth watching his performance - he puts on the most ridiculous faux-French accent & basically just takes the piss... I just watched one video where he drapes himself across the piano, then finishes by doing some press ups and lighting a fag.

He is also a Sex God. Official.

The Best Thing In The World

The other week I was sent a video which I can only describe as Amazing.
It accompanies a song entitled "The Worst Thing In The World" by a band called Kunt & The Gang. I have now decided that it is, in fact, The Best Thing In The World.

If you're easily offended it's probably for the best if you don't watch it as it isn't to everyone's taste - it's quite rude! But I think it's hillarious...


It's a catchy little tune

They have another song called "Fucksticks" which is even better, but this video swings it for me!

check it out on their myspace:

You will find songs about Carol Vorderman, Fred & Rose West, Dr Fox & ummm... cranking
