Last Night's Wedding... [06 Aug 2006|01:08pm]

I'm putting this on here because it was a DJ gig for a wedding, but the bride and groom wanted a DJ who does not play the usual wedding music. It started out great, and almost became like a nightclub gig as the night went on.

Anyway, here's the playlist for the night.

Under here, and it is big.Collapse )

MTV 25th anniversary, tonight! [31 Jul 2006|02:26pm]

Just to let you know...

12:01 AM on the East Coast, tonight, is the exact 25th anniversary of the first broadcast of MTV. Set your recording devices.

Note: I find their current programming unbearable, so I do not watch any more. Do they have anything special planned on MTV or MTV2?

Last Thursdays playlist at the Pyramid [04 Jul 2006|10:28am]

Here you go. The weather kept a few people away, but we did okay.

I LOVE female rock and new wave vocalists, and I played a lot of them that night. One day, I would like to do an all-girl group night.

Be imaginative in your requests, and remember, there are DJs who play more than the standard 25 songs, and that bands like New Order have songs BESIDES "Bizarre Love Triangle," and the Cure has many other recordings other than "Just Like Heaven." If you really want to find out about music, iTunes is NOT the place to do it.

Okay, let's all say it together! [29 Jun 2006|08:34pm]

"I am here for Pandora's Jukebox."

Tonight at the Pyramid, 101 Ave. A, NYC:

If you come out to the club, and liked my playlists, and want to hear more, just please say that above phrase to the young lady who works the door. You folks seemed to enjoy yourselves, but I fear without that door total, I might get sacked.

So, I beseech you for your help.

Remember, kids! Stop, drop, and roll, then say:

"I am here for Pandora's Jukebox."

Thank you.

Can you please say, "I am here for Pandora's Jukebox?" [26 Jun 2006|02:50pm]

This Thursday, June 29th might be the last one of these unless you help.

We need at least 20 or so of you to say "I am here for Pandora's Jukebox" to the girl at the door who takes the cover charge money.

It does not matter that the bar rang triple what it did the week before, or that everyone had a great time, and there will be even more people this week, because everyone has fun.

What matters to the powers that be, the ONLY thing is that you just say at the door:


I hope to see you at the thrid installment of the musical box of troubles, this Thursday, June 29th.

Pyramid, 101 Avenue A, NYC

You will hear a night of Rare New Wave, Classic Goth, Punk, Ska, Classic Industrial, Manchester Beat, Britpop, New Rock, 90's Modern Rock, Lost Classics, and a LOT more!!!

It's music you have not heard in years, and will not hear anywhere else.

Join us for two levels of decadence. Cybertron/Remission is upstairs and Pandora's Jukebox is downstairs. Please ask for Pandora's Jukebox at the door, so that we can get credit.

Last night at the Pyramid. [23 Jun 2006|12:45pm]

First, last night did well. The bar downstairs rang a little over three times what it did last week, but to the powers-that-be, it does not matter, because the people who were downstairs and dancing did not specifically ask for "Pandora's Jukebox" when they came in, so we got not gredit for the people who were down there.

Second, if you attended, and I spoke to you, thanks for coming, and I hope you had a good time (and tell your friends). Just one thing...please don't leave just because you heard ONE song that you either did not know or like. I view it as a personal mission to bring people music they cannot hear anywhere else.

It was great to meet Brad, and be able to engage in a bit of DJ shop talk. It was also nice for people to say, "hey! Are you going to be here next week?"

Finally, if you come to the Pyramid next Thursday, please mention that you are here for "Pandora's Jukebox." If people do not do that, it does not matter how many people come downstairs. Those are the only numbers they go by, and if people do not ask for "Pandora's Jukebox" at the door, we will be dismissed as failures.

Playlist under this cut. As promised last week, lots more new wave, lots less gloom and doom.Collapse )

Short set at Axis. [19 Jun 2006|10:54am]

I guest-DJed at Axis last night, and here is the short list. It was rather odd that the main DJ put on a 9 minute song by Sasha as the song I had to transition into. Eh. It gave me plenty of time, and people were on the dance floor the whole time.

Tones on Tail-Christian Says
London After Midnight-Psycho Magnet/Kiss
The Beloved-Sweet Harmony
New Order-Crystal
Ruby-Tiny Meat
Anything Box-Living in Oblivion
Book of Love-Pretty Boys and Pretty Girls (7" version)
Peter Schilling-The Different Story (followup single to Major Tom)
Apoptygma Berzerk-Fade to Black (Metallica cover)

Last Night at the Pyramid [16 Jun 2006|10:39am]

Eh. Not a great turnout, but upstairs did not do so well, either. Hopefully, it will be like on Saturdays, when the night built to a big turnout. However, this time, the guys running things are great DJ's, and won't pull me because of jealousy.

There were a lot of younger Goth-types who came downstairs and looked around, and seemed to act like "this is not what I am used to," and went back upstairs to the EBM and Synthpop. Eh. I have found that once folks get over themselves and that just because they consider themselves Gothic, it does not mean that they have to only listen to dark music, and that there is over 25 YEARS worth of music in the Goth genre.

In any event, I will be playing a LOT more New Wave and classic Goth from now on, based on people's reactions. I still will avoid 80's pop like the plague, but anything else is fair game.

If you see songs on here that you do not know, that is because I am an old fogey, and was an honest to goodness Punk and New Waver in the 1980's.

Playlist under cut, because it is big.Collapse )

Upcoming DJ Gigs... [06 Jun 2006|02:55pm]

This Saturday, I'll be back downstairs at the Pyramid for the return of Sacrilege Saturdays. It's nice when people say, "get that other guy back," and they listen, and totally change their attitude. Please show up and show 'em just who the boss is.

Thursdays, starting June 15, I'll be at the Pyramid for Pandora's Jukebox, a "musical box of troubles," featuring rare New Wave, Punk, Ska, Newer Alt-rock, 90's Modern Rock, and more.

hello! I am a new member, and I am a big fan of new wave music. I also wanted to pimp my new community echo_bunnymen dedicated to Echo & the Bunnymen. They are one of my favorite bands, and they are still out there making great albums and touring. I love them. My other favorite bands of the era are the Cure, Psychedelic Furs, the Smiths/Morrissey, R.E.M., and many others...

So anyway, Hi everyone!

Hi everyone, I've just recently found this community so I thought I'd join.
I guess I should introduce myself by introducing a band. I'm not sure if you've heard of them but they're called Action Action. They recently joined Victory Records (not really a place where you can find a new-wave band), but they sound interesting.

Anyway here's their e-card.

and an MP3
"Drug Like"

If you sing "Hi, my name is Martin Gore and I'm In Depeche Mode" along to the DM B-side-to-"Enjoy The Silence", Sibeling, it works perfectly.

This is a group I should have joined long ago. I strive to keep New Wave alive (as you can tell by my musical tastes listed in my LJ userinfo). I look forward to conversing with others looking to "carry the torch" as our army of skinny ties marches on :-)

BTW...I also do keyboards for the Los Angeles ethereal/experimental group, Venus Virus, which now has playable MP3s on My Space! This is a great way to listen to Venus Virus' previous release, Emeralds, in its entirety.

Thanks in advance and I'm looking forward to being a part of this community!

new wave compilations or CD box sets [11 Jul 2004|12:12am]

Do any of you have any new wave CD sets, such as New Wave Dance Hits: Just Can't Get Enough series?

If so, what do you have?

I have about 5 new wave compilations, mainly because I'd go broke if I purchased all of them. ;) Plus I have friends who have some of the sets I want and they are supposed to make copies for me. :)

The best seem to be Just Can't Get Enough series. With Richard Blade's Flashback Favorites a very close 2nd. Others mentionables are New Wave Club Class-X, Pop & Wave: The Hits of the 80's, and the Electric Dreams: 18 Classic Hits from an Electric Era and Electricity: 18 Synthpop Hits comps.

I was just wondering and wanting to start a new conversation. :)
