stuart dj-ing @ cottier theatre, glasgow
part of the deepburnt festival.
hood and duke raoul played live.
stuart braithwaite and sirconical dj-ed.
from marceline smith:
last night was pretty damn great.
the much-advertised mogwai guesting thing turned out to be wee stuart
dj-ing for well over an hour but he was really fantastic. playing
spacemen 3 and the yummy fur at his dj spot at trail of dead was one
thing but this was like proper dj-ing. he'd obvioulsy been practicing
some fancy mixing skills and managed to stick in a whole bunch of
stuff from hip hop to electronica to cheesy garage to heavy metal to
sesame street. but i think he mainly likes dj-ing so he can put on a
long record every now and again and run about getting another beer
and chatting to people. i expect this to get worked in to mogwai's
set at some point.
after that we got the first band who were really bad and then a bit
more dj-ing from someone else before hood. hood were really great. it
all just worked together really well. the electronicy stuff, the
guitars, the projections and everything. and they did a fantastically
loud rock out bit to finish on.
it was just a shame that it was quite badly attended. the cottier is
a really nice old churchy venue but it is out of the town centre and
at £9 a night i expect most people won't be going for more than 1 or
2 nights out of the lot. it was also a bit on the loud
side so a lot of people, including us, spent half the night in the
other room so we didn't have to shout all the time.
from stuart mchugh:
anyone else at the cottier last night? the timings were all to pot, so when i got there the "very special guests" and supposed
co-headliners with hood, mogwai, had already done their dj set. seemingly the
'special' performance (which many took to be a live set) never happened, just stuart b playing some records.
