Big Sexy Land


A few months ago James and I were DJing at the launch party for the ace New Young Pony Club‘s single Get Lucky when we were approched by a very beardy man while playing Los Super Elegantes brilliant cover of ESG’s Dance. The beardy man turned out to be one of the Johns from London clubnight Big Sexy Land (sounds dodgy, is not) and he invited us to play a guest slot at one of their nights sometime.

Eventually we got round to doing this last month, and played a rather poppier set than the rest of the night seemed to be. But hey, hurrah for pop! Thanks to Jack & Claire for coming!

This is what we played:

  Metronomy – How Say
  Ural 13 Diktators – Blind Love
  Shiny Toy Guns – Le Disko
  Pet Shop Boys – Minimal
  Bobby Conn – No Revolution
  Pulp – Party Hard
  The Noisettes – Scratch Your Name
  Clor – Good Stuff
  OMD – Waiting For The Man
  Diana Ross – Nathan Jones
  Girls Aloud – Wild Horse
  Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopez – Block Party
  Le Tigre – Phanta
  The Clash – Rudie Can’t Fail
  Annie – The Crush
  Gwenno – Dance Again
  Sarah Nixey – Strangelove
  Robots in Disguise – DJ Got A Gun
  Vitalic – My Friend Dario
  Rachel Stevens – So Good
  Client – Xerox Machine
  Elvis Costello – Pump it Up
  Puffy Yumi Ami – Call Me What U Like
  Delays – Valentine
  Morningwood – Nth Degree
  Los Super Elegantes – Dance
  Mia – Heroes
  Dead Disco – Automatic
  Wire – Dot Dash
  Kitty and the Ks – I Am MF

I could write paragraphs about nearly all of those songs, but I won’t. If you want to know any more about any of them, then just ask. And always remember The Hype Machine is your friend.
