Superstar DJs (not!)
For some time now I have been nursing the idea of putting on a night and playing some of the tunes that I've posted here over the past year and a bit but decided it would be too much hassle.
However, recently I decided, why not. So I thought instead of doing it myself I would enlist the help of some of the reprobates listed down the right hand side of the blog, well the ones within traveling distance of Glasgow. As I have a theory that I think that every music blogger has a yearning to play their music really loud outwith the confines of their own home. So I emailed JC, Gareth and ANCB to see if they would be interested in playing their tunes to more than their spouse's, progeny and pets who, let's face it must be sick of hearing these records. I got a positive response from all three, although ANCB is the exception to my theory as he has no desire to dj but would come along.
The next hurdle was finding a venue. For this I employed the opinions of a couple of hipster friends of mine who live in the toon and they gave me a comprehensive list of suitable venues. I contacted a few of these and whittled them down to a couple but one really appealed to me. When I didn't get a reply from them , I decided to give it one last try and if still nothing then I would just give up on the idea. To my surprise and delight, Barney from The Flying Duck responded and was interested in putting on the night. So today, I finalised the nights (yes, we've been offered 3 nights).
All that is left now is to think of a name, as my original idea Bloggers Delight has already been used (bugger), The Bloggers Coalition, I've been told is crap and The Vinyl Villain Asks From Across The Kitchen Table, How Does That One Go Again? doesn't exactly roll off the tongue and would take up a whole flyer.
So if you are in the vicinity of Glasgow on June 12th, July 10th or August 14th and want to see 3 sad gits play what can only be described as a cornucopia of different styles of modern and not so modern music, come to The Flying Duck at the top of Renfield Street between 8pm and midnight, admission free before 11pm and laugh at us or buy us a pint.

With Simon's help I've decided on Blog Rocking Beats, I know but it's the best I can do.
