First up was Orsha from Leeds who managed to get some amazing sounds out of his macbook – dancey as hell – This guy knows how to party!
Next up were Grasshopper who banged out some nice indie pop tunes with the vocal stylings of the Sisters of Mercy – with a bit of ‘Get Carter’ thrown in whilst a guitar string was replaced.
I first came across Fujiya + Miyagi when I heared ‘Ankle Injuries‘ on a Mojo Compilation about 10 years ago. You knew you were in for a good night when they started off with it. They’ve re-release the LP it was from and played quite a chunk of it tonight. There ws room (I’m glad to say) for Extended dance mix Flaws and Knickerbockerglory (though nothing from Ventrilioquizzing…..). If you like your electronic music with catchy repetitive beats, then go and see them – you won’t be dissapointed……
