|Two in a bed and the little one said.........
Well at five this morning I was rudely awoken by a cracking noise and a sharp pain in my left shoulder and neck! All I did was roll over in bed!?! Anyway an hour later I thought it was best I try drive home from Kim's as she was going to work about eight so I didn't really wanna be left home alone. The drive home was a long and painful one, anyway finally got home and have spent the rest of the day laid up in bed. Sadly to say I still have the pain in the neck so might be taking a trip to the hospital later on.
All this after a good weekend as well. Saturday morning drove back from Middlesboro to have a bit more tattoo work done on my arm. Saturday nite headed over to Leeds for the Wendy House
which was busy as ever and the atmosphere was electric. Some really good tunes played and had me dancin loads. Sadly had to leave early as I had to be in work at seven in the morning.
Sunday saw me traveling back up north to boro. Went to the cinema to see 'Eagle Eye'
. Good film, liked it, even the possibility of the story line. Sadly the ending was..... well crap and very soppy!
Also for those that haven't seen me to ask 'egg school' wasn't all it was cracked up to be! The highlight of the day was driving a 1.8 TDI Octavia and getting a free 'mag lite'.
Anyway as Bunker 13
is only a couple of weeks away I'm gonna be working on what to take with me. So if anyone that is coming over wants a particular tune then let me know and I'll see what I can do.

|Back to school!!!!!
Tomorrow see's me returning back to school...... well its 'Egg School'. Work are sending me on a one day course to understand the development and hatching of eggs!!!! Yep your probably wondering 'What the hell' and I'm thinking the same.
Anyway work have foolishly given me a company car for the day (more fool them). I have the least number of years driving experience then the rest of them coming with me and I'm not used to driving anything bigger than a 1lt Corsa. So they go give me a 1.8 turbo diesel..... he he he. So if anyone is traveling over to Liverpool tomorrow then please take extra care to avoid the idiot in a silver Skoda Octavia.
Hopefully I will survive the journey as I don't want to miss the Wendy House
this weekend as both me and Mandy
need to do last minute advertising for Bunker 13 at The Alternative
in Whitby at the end of the month.

|BUNKER 13 @ The Alternative Whitby
Just a reminder to you all at the end of the month see's me and my good lady dj D-Ject
and guest dj Nibber
doing the Friday night at Laughton's for a Bunker 13 one off night. Hopefully see most of you there.
Til then keep it harsh and filthy ; )
|Friday, October 3rd, 2008|
Well its been a funny sort of month since I last posted.......
I was meant to have a guest slot up in Newcastle at Tech Noir
but sadly this fell through :(
I have been told if the problem that stopped me from guesting is resolved I will be going up to do a slot but until then it just The Alternative
at the end of this month in Whitby.
Also I was meant to get my tattoo sleeve finished on my right arm but that fell through due to somebody double booking!!!!! Anyway due to work commitments I won't be getting that done til sometime in November now :(
Other than that I haven't done a great deal, been to a few places with the other half on day trips out. Nibber
might be shocked to know that one of these days out was the 'Harrogate Flower show'!!!!!! Yep people you read it correctly....... a flower show. If I wasn't a mad scientist I would be a landscape designer so that's why before I have to explain to some of my friends that don't know.
This weekend sees me going up the A1/A19 again (which I have mostly been doing since last time) to see Kim and to get my new hair style!!!! O yes for those who will be at the Rotersand/Reaper
gig next Saturday will see ti there.
Hopefully I won't leave it as long to update Current Mood: giddy
|Saturday, August 30th, 2008|
Well first of all I will be returning tup norf to newcastle on the 19th Sep for a guest slot at Tech Noir
. Looking forward to playing there again and catching up with some old friends.
This guest slot will get me ready for The Alternative
Whitby where Bunker 13 returns for a one off night of filth and harsh tunes! Both me and D-Ject will be doing the Friday night (31st Oct) in Laughton's night club with the help of our good friend Dj Nibber
(WGT). So Can't wait for this one as it has been far too long since Bunker 13 was bombarding the dance floor. Anyway hope to see some of you at either of these nights.
Hopefully more guest slots to follow soon as I have got confirmation!!!

|News 'n' stuff........
Well after spending two days in the mud of Leeds Festival
and missing my good lady I decided my heart really should be at Infest
and after my lovely gal (plus friends) found someone selling a ticket I headed off from the field at 7am Saturday morning. I'm so glad I did go to Infest
as it was one of the best I have been to. Plus Noisuf-x
and Tyske Ludder
really made my weekend so it was worth leaving the muddy field!
Good news as well that the return of Music Non Stop
not so good news for my bank account!!!!! All the best to Grufti
with this venture and I'm sure most people reading this will support you in every way we can.
Anyway I'm just waiting on some more info on some guest dj slots so as soon as I know more I'll post here with the latest.
|Wednesday, August 20th, 2008|
Well its been another long time in not posting anything on here and now I have been told by my better half I have to...... SORT IT OUT!
So here we go. Quick update for everyone that may not know. Was due to move down to that there Devon in the first quarter of this year to be with my then girlfriend (can you see where this is going?) Any road it didn't work out and so we split and I stopped up here. Now living with my parents in Harrogate, loving the cheap rent.
So with having lots of money now.... not, I'm going out more and going to so many gigs (19 to date).
So that's where my story begins. This weekend just gone me and my girly (who I've know for four years) went off to Beached Festival
in Scarborough. The weather wasn't too bad other than Sunday morning when we were due to leave, that's when my car finally started!!!! Anyway the variety of bands were good especially Glamour of the Kill
Then spent the last two days spending some time with my lovely lady before she heads off to Infest
and I go off to Leeds Festival
.I am gonna miss Infest again but I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of bands I have wanted to see for years at Leeds.
Anyway won't go on and on so I'll post again soon before I get another telling off, hopefully with some 'dj' updates :) Current Mood: content
|Sunday, November 25th, 2007|
This will come as a big shock to some of you but after much consideration I am hanging up my headphones and giving goth dj'ing up!!!!!!
So as the title says I'm selling my cd collection......... So if your interested then I can send you a rough guide to what I have and then you can make me a sensible offer please. Also please note you will have to collect them as there is no way I'm shipping about 800 cds!!!!

|Dark City Festival 07
Well Dark City
was good, not the best I have been to and I’ve been to them all. I do think it was a change of venue that put a downer on things even though 'The Caves' is a lovely venue! One thing for sure though is I did love the new acts I discovered at this years event! Mainly the following ( 32 Crash
) The other bands were great and Obscenity Trail
and Solitary Experiments
but I was really disappointed by the performances of Grendel
and Pre-Empitive Strike 0.1
Other than the running times on both Saturday and Sunday running very late I did enjoy the weekend catching up with several friends ( Zeitgeist Zero
(Thanks for letting me help you out again!), Amanda
)plus other that I have not mentioned here (Hopefully you'll know who you are) Also thanks for the great hospitality of Geth
Must not forget to mention that I also met loads of other people like the lovely Leanne
Anyway I think I’m going on a bit because I haven’t wrote on here in far to long! So just to finish off by saying my dj set(s) went well. Friday night was great, Sunday not so but that’s because the bands were running late so I never got to dj!!! Or well I enjoyed myself and at least I got to dj Friday night. Here is my set list from then if your interested.
Setlist - Fri 12:00 - 01:00
Assemblage 23 - Binary (Club Mix)
Pride and Fall - December
Plastic - Lies
Mesh - Crash (Collision Mix)
Monochrome - Sold (Negative Format Remix)
XPQ 21 - Beautiful
VNV Nation - Chrome (SITD Mix)
Run Level Zero - Under the Gun (X-Fusion Remix)
Suicide Commando - Fuck You Bitch
Grendel - Soilbleed (V3)
Tactical Sekt - Bring Me Violence (R)
Terrorfakt - A.L.F. (Accessory Mix) (R)
Plus some great photos taken by me of some bands when I wasn’t chatting, filming or drinking can be found here

|Infest Festival + the past month!
I know it’s nearly a month on from the actual festival but I've had loads on.
Planning for the return of BUNKER 13
next Saturday in York at our new venue (City Screen). Really can't wait to get back behind the decks of the Bunker.
Also in other dj news I have been asked to guest dj at an opening night of Misbehaviour UK in Birminingham next month (21st Oct). Really looking forward to that as I haven't played in Birmingham before.
Anyway back to 'Infest', it was one of my best and not because I got to dj on the Saturday afternoon. The people I met ( M-Saint
+ others I already know.
Anyway for those that want to know what I played ( here it isCollapse ) Current Mood: giddy

|What a weekend!!!
Well that's my 'mini tour' over and done with!!!!!!
Newcastle was great, really loved the night. Big thanks to Dj Bonez for letting me do Dj Skank's slot while she was at Mera Luna (Lucky gal). I know I will be going up there again.... hopefully soon.
Set list can be found ( hereCollapse )
Then second night of the 'tour' saw me at the lovely 'Resurrected' in Leeds. Big thanks to eblue
and Mr Hybrid
for letting me dj again at there night. Great mix of tracks by all the dj's.
Set list can be found ( hereCollapse )
Sunday was just a nice quiet day/night in looking after the sick cat (Jet). She has got a viral infection causing her to salivate excessively!!! Which is a bit worrying as I have just brought home today 'Nitzer' and 'Ebb' my new hamsters. So I hope they will be ok with a well pissed off cat (due to not been allowed out) salivating in front of they cage.
Anyway hope to see some of you at Wendy House this weekend so I can give you the new BUNKER 13
flyer and an invite to the annual post Infest
BBQ. Current Mood: bouncy

|Busy old me!........again
Why do I do it to myself?
This friday sees me traveling up to Newcastle to guest dj at Fight the Robots
as resident dj Skank is off to Mera Luna (Lucky gal). This will a great warm up for my Infest
set, as I am behind the decks for 2.5hrs!
Then if that wasn't enough for one weekend I'm guest dj'ing at Resurrected
on the Saturday night. This is going to be a great night as it is an Infest
warm-up party. I'm gonna be playing some songs that I really love and some even have a hidden meaning....... well to me they do!?! As they remind me of some great times when I have dj'ed in the past.
Also expect to see the new BUNKER 13
flyer's plastered about the place.
Hope to see some of you this weekend. Current Mood: excited

|It all starts here!!!!
Last night went over to Sheffield to see the RHCP and I have to say they really did funking rock. Supports bands were not for me but hay I was only there as my better half loves the chillies.
Today see's me heading over to Hyde Park to get my back tattoo extended, so expect a photo up later maybe!!!!
The weekend see's the bbq season continue with Richard and Jo's bbq/party tomorrow and then on Sunday a work colleague is having one with a spit roast (no smutty comments please).
On that note (bbq wise) I will be having a bbq on the August bank holiday monday after 'Infest' and the minuscule of sound may return. So you all have had early warning and can book it into your diaries. Invites will be distributed over the next month or so. Current Mood: nervous
