Shindig: 2010 Musique

Christ, the last time I posted on this blog it was exactly a year and one day ago, but thats alright because since then blogging has become about as fashionable and socially accepted as becoming a priest or tattooing NECRO in big letters on your leg.

But enough shite attempts at humorous opening paragraphs, heres some proof that we haven't pished away all our creativity in the past year:

Expect a new shindig long player at some point this summer. maybe.

NEW SHINDIG RELEASE!!!! (kind of but not really)

A while back a friend asked me and Mono Trigger to put together a live set composed entirely of 80's TV themes for a club night.
Needless to say the night ended up an epic shambles and its not very fun playing the Fraggle Rock theme to an empty club.
If anything is to be salvaged of this atrocious event it's this piece of novelty trash conjured up by myself:

Good Acidhouse keeping

Jeepers, it seems like its been ages since theres been any shite posted here or on thoughts etc.

But im nearly finished college and I'd imagine the summer will allow me more time to waste online before I embark on a career or some shit.

anyways, news of sorts.

DJ Dano and B-Koz get a mention in the chancer (and yes, I referred to myself in the third person, just like Dwayne "the rock" Johnson)

VHS 2000, the first (I think) Shindig film is still on course for its summer release (where?, nowhere probably)

And a mix of sorts that I recorded live for a rubbish "battle of the DJ's" competition or sumthink last week, reproduced here via the medium of the internet for your listening enjoyment.
DJ Dano-A bunch of neat songs

Peace bitches.

New Shindig short film

More college work shenanigans, directed and feat music by myself. Basically an excuse for me an Diarmo to go on the piss and hit the central.
Cheers to Messy A, and Tugboat for the thumpin Bass.

Bye 2007

So 2007 was probably my (if not our whole crew's) least musically productive year yet. We did get some hip and happening stuff done though:

January started as the year was to go on, with a failed attempt at a second album-a-day by the Pinkos. Another of those quite possibly in the pipelines though, even if just to kickstart us back into action...

February seemed to be one of those months where drinking etc. took precedence over, well, anything else really. Although it did produce this Shindig classic.

Clearly we were just as busy in March.

April: work starts on the DJ Dano & B-Koz album, and we had some fun on a rare lovely hot day in Letterkenny filming this:

DJ DANO & B-KOZ: Evidence is Real

In May Dano & B-Koz got a wee bit of coverage on Blogorrah, and Piers Morning's debut was launched to a salivating public.

June was all about the rap & production team as word of the first Shindig gig in a slow age came through.

July was the big release and live show month - a whale of a time was had by all in the Orchard, and Universal recently sold out of copies of the album, so thanks everyone!

In August, it was back to the grind of going out far too often for our own health, with occasional musical endeavours.

September arrives, more promises of new material are made and broken and:

Felix from Hot Chip comes to Letterkenny with a crate of thumping minimal, backed by our own DJ Dano and some incredibly annoying crowd noises

Apparently nothing happened in October, while we relocated once again to Belfast, Dublin, etc.

November? "Hey look, here's what we're doing (also known as sweet fuck all)."

And finally, in December just past, probably more drinking than all year (for me anyway) and Dano provides the B-Koz album for download for those who couldn't get their hands on a hard copy.

And so to 2008 then. Immediate plans: looks like myself and Diarmaid are gonna work on some new music before January is out, with the current aim of an EP or similarly small collection of songs.

The Pinkos will hopefully reunite and get that sophomore album-a-day done, finally. The Super Eight Kids might have a wee tinker in the studio, and myself and Fionn and Dano will hopefully get some stuff done in our Belfast "studio" (dining room). I'm also gonna tidy up and clear out my hard drive of all the crap tunes I've accumulated in the past few years and start afresh when my new interface and headphones arrive.

2007 was mostly a year of broken musical promises (for me anyway) - here's to 2008 being a damn-sight more prolific. Happy new year ya filthy animals!

Shindig Records winter update:

Bringing you up to speed with the Shindig crew (aka, trying to fashion what we are doing with our lives to sound like we are doing something productive)

Tugboat Willy:promised an EP of sorts here a while back (see post below) so consider his hat well and truly ate.
Dont worry though, been hearing his new choons thumping loudly in his room the past few weeks and I've a feeling Shindig's golden boy will deliver another red hot CD for yall to vibe with.

DJ Dano:production wise, im not up to much these days, but Im gonna un-pack that shitty old compaq thats been sitting in my garage since september and start work on my solo material. shindig "studios" (okay, the study room in my house) has been relocated to my garage (by moving the computer out there).Im also in talks with Shindig newest Mc, Gloves to do a track.
I'll be hopefully be kicking ass and chewing bubblegum at a "battle" of the DJ's comp at the belfast students union on the 22nd.

Messy Angelo: I honestly havent a clue, fill us in Messy!
Update! from the man himself- "I've had my new PC for a week, so I'm trying to figure out how to recover all my old shit off my fucked laptop. Expect a fuller update on the crappy, ill-kempt messy blog over the next week or two ..."

Also I've been shitting it trying to figure out what I'm gonna do after Xmas when Frankie and Harvey move out ... Could be back in LK before you can say Jack Robinson.

Oddy Knocky:In between learning from polish people how to treat women and crafting pizza's at traditional Italian eatery Domino's, Fionn can be found educating us on just how good The Band are. (very)

Bor:in england probably hoofing GHB.
(I dont actually know what he's at either, do share with us robert.

B-Koz:LK's finest emcee, still not lovin police.Hopefully me and B-Koz will get a track or two done this christmas, dont want our skills gettin rusty.

Mr Bump: Getting up with his mad visual's, stay tuned

also, plans are being formed for Shindig's third Album in a day attempt

Hat Eating Time

So last week I wrote: ...you can expect the new Tugboat Willy EP to be floating about here, ready and willing to be downloaded for free, by Friday the 21st of this month at the latest - I pwomise!

Alright, alright, the promise has been broken - I didn't get this ready in time. I have been working hard on my summer Tugboat material over the past week but to "release" it (as it were) now wouldn't do it justice. Still gotta decide whether I have decent enough vocals for the tracks I want vocals on, and it still needs tinkering, still needs love.

So I'm transferring all this shit onto my laptop and bringing the work with me to Belfast. It still is coming soon, in the near future indeed - just not quite yet... In the meantime, do check out DJ Dano's fine new mix just below!

the Hot Chip gig then...

this video says more than I ever could.

New Tugboat EP coming soon!

While I'd hoped to get a whole album's worth of material done over the summer months, things (working + the small issue of partying at any given opportunity) conspired against me, as things tend to do. So it's boiled down to a handful of brand-spanking new tracks which I'm gonna work furiously on in the next 2 weeks before the return to college - hopefully with the aid of a few collaborators I drunkenly asked to join me (if I don't get back to you soon, definitely next time!)

I'm pretty happy the way this batch is working out and you can expect the new Tugboat Willy EP to be floating about here, ready and willing to be downloaded for free, by Friday the 21st of this month at the latest - I pwomise!

Before that of course, roll on this Friday: hopefully we'll see as many peeps as possible out in full force for our man DJ Dano, the Deep Fried Funk DJs and the almighty Hot Chip in the Orchard for what should be one of the hottest gigs Letterkenny's seen in quite a while, not to mention a fitting end to a summer spent rinsing it out in bars, clubs, kitchens, living rooms, fields and forests.
