!Kaboogie presents: Fourth Birthday bash!, January 15 2010, The Twisted Pepper, Middle Abbey St., Dublin 1, Dublin Ireland

January 15 2010, The Twisted Pepper, Middle Abbey St., Dublin 1, 10pm

!Kaboogie celebrates four years of bringing the futhermucking BASS to Dublin with a whopper, two-floor line-up in the Twisted Pepper on Friday 15 January. With Terror Danjah, Wadadda, Moutpiece, Gramophone Disco and North Strand Kontra Band

The ground floor of the Twisted Pepper will be a little different to the (un)usual !Kaboogie fare, with Gramophone Disco hosting the evenings festivities and also doing a little decoration job on the place! Supremo Dublin punkers Moutpiece will be lashing it out, followed by the jump-up specialists North Strand Kontra Band.

Down in the bassment we’ll have the mighty Terror Danjah, hot off his recently released “Gremlinz” album on Planet Mu. Expect grime that’d put even Mr Muscle into a panic. Further bass treats come all the way over from Germany, with the dubbed out skank and bounce of Wadadda. Tactical bass support on both floors from the lovely !Kaboogie residents.

The night shall be kicking off at ten bells. Cos we is soooo nice to you, it’s only a MERE FIVER in before 11, then a tenner afterwards. Come down and celebrate with us, it’s gonna be mental buzz!

North Strand Kontra Band
Blending the high energy, hypnotic sounds of the Balkans with everything from funk to drum and bass, The North Strand Kontra Band (formerly The North Strand Klezmer Band) Have brought fresh excitement to the live music scene over the last 4 years.“One of Dublin’s most exciting live acts” – The Irish TimesThe line up includes clarinet, saxophone, trombone, piano accordion, banjo/guitar, tuba and drums.

The Gramaphone Disco
The Gramophone Disco play Calypso, Jazz, R’n’b, Western Swing, Music hall – Modern music, but nothing after nineteen sixty. Played on all the formats of history from 78 records on. The dancer is transported back in time to an age when the future was new. Using Victorian, Edwardian, early Modernist art and decor, the visitor is enveloped in an antique world.

The Magic Lantern Cinema projects highlights of classic and early film,documentary and porn of both Irish and international production, that are tailor made to marry with the mood of the music.

The overall atmosphere is a dizzying party of great music and dancing. It is a sanctuary for those weary of the over stimulated post modern world.Playing dirty ditties at a shindig near you soon.

Moutpiece“..Dublin garage spazmo rockers mouthpiece, a fiery collective of absurdity and madness rolled into a rock n’roll machine of power.Loud, fast, obnoxious bursts of guitar fuelled mayhem, the band was formed by Gaz Moutpiece and Derek Gihad, armed with a blistering bag of riffs and a voracious thirst for everything, they recruited Tommy Trousers on bass duties and set off on the road. Tours of Holland, Ireland and festival appearances ensued and the spazmo garage punk rock n’roll was brought to the masses, who enjoyed it immensely.Conzo Hercules joined to add more guitar mayhem into the mix and now with a new album on the streets, Moutpiece are set to go into hyper drive, so don’t miss ‘em…

Turns out Moutpiece can’t play due to snow related injury.

I’m off to the Electric picnic in morning to put on a venue called the Gramophone Disco.Having been there on Tuesday and Wednesday, I can relate to you that the site is in shite and it’s cold there. If your going bring warm clothes and wellies or waders or a boat…

This track catches the vibe of what we do there.

James Luther Dickinson- O How She Dances

This tune being something of an anthem at a Gramophone disco thing I do with some pals.

Gramophone disco being an all night bar with a 78’s , normal records and a pre sixties music policy. The Gramophone disco has a nice carny feel with various diversions including-

<strong>Smash hits gramophone disco.</strong>

This is where the crowd listen to a record and vote whether to smash it or whether it’s a hit and a keepy. It’s  fun for a various reasons

1. Smashing records(particularly brittle shellac) is very satisfying fun.

2. It has the added bonus of being a kind of anarchist history smashing theatre.

3. When I have a enough smashed 78’s, I’m going to make a time machine out of them.

4. It’s good to crate dig in public and share the pleasure of finding an unknown great record- makes a surprisingly good entertainment.

5. It’s a way of getting people to actually listen and pay attention to old 78’s.

6. It’s a good antidote to the whole po-faced worship of the past, old records etc.

We’re doing the Electric picnic this weekend so drop in if your around and here’s another 78/tune to listen to on the drive there.

“In 1924 the British magazine Gramophone playfully warned of ‘gramomania’ alerting readers to its ‘insidious approach, its baneful effects, its ability to destroy human delights’. Two years later, on the other side of the Atlantic, the Phonography Monthly Review asked readers to recount their most dire sacrifices in the name of grooved shellac.”

From Capturing Sound: How Technology Has Changed Music by Mark Katz, p10.

I’m starting a new section of this blog/site called gramomania, I’ll try to put up a 78 gramophone record every week. It will also be a place for posts about old stuff, the history of the future, time machine schematics, automata etc.

So to start off here’s a US top ten tune from 1950
