Maybe you didn’t think there’s a direct musical line from Curtis Mayfield to Luke Solomon to the Fast Show. But there is.
It’s a French duo called GET PISSED.
They’re regulars at Paris’s legendary Batofar and at Folie Pigalle, a venue in the red-light district that’s as known for its clientele of tranny prostitutes as it for its completely insane afterparties.
Needless to say, we first found them on the Internet because that’s where that type hangs out. But it’s also where their dancefloor bootlegs of Mr Mayfield, Miles Davis and the Freaks’s classic Washing Machine have been making a funky, soulful racket – and their irreverent attitude has created a select but incredibly loyal following among Parisians sick of thumpingly banging electro.
This will be GET PISSED’s first time playing London.
And to add that little disco touch to the giddiness downstairs, upstairs we’re welcoming special guest Ben Pistor of Dalston superstars DISCO BLOODBATH. Alongside Horse Meat Disco, Bloodbath is the other massively popular night that has straight people dancing to disco and italo again – and Ben will be fresh from playing Snowbombing, the BLOC weekender and getting ready for the Eastern Electrics festival in May…
Every second month it’s a night of non-instructional house, nonchalant techno - and this time round bootlegs, disco, italo, uk funky and dub …
