14. Techno Techno Techno

"Stealth club night
Stealth takes place on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month.
Our self titled Saturday night, Stealth will showcase the finest in
House, Techno and Electro from around the globe. Residents Dave Congreve, Matt Tolfrey and Timm Sure will be lining up alongside fresh, burgeoning talents and living legends alike, to take you on a twisted adventure through charged up electronic and digital beats."

After a few hours drinking on saturday we (democratically, Tom would like that) decided to go to Stealth club night, and I'm glad we did because it was fucking awesome. After watching a live band inside we moved upstairs, unprepared for what would be an envigorating new experience for me: namely Techo music (Rob, Bill etc would like that).

One of the best things about the night was that Birthday Boy Tom shares a house with.... wait for it... James Hughes from KEGs, i.e the accordion virtuoso slave (Paine, Oli, anyone who did orchestras and shit, would like that.. do you remember him?). So although we knew this already, we got to do some mad techno shit with James and here about his blossoming musical career (28 shows booked around the country before May, £100 a show.... {me} "So do you remember Justin?" {james} "yes" {me} "He was always well good with music etc, how do you compare?" {James} "[I have gone{far}] BEYOND {Justin}")
So after all that I managed to ascertain that James was good at music, and he knew it, funny, I thought his most accomplished musical performance was in blowing his own (fucking) trumpet
I had a really great night with the guy though, he was pretty funny (without meaning to be)

Seriously though (sic), Techno music is so good if you want it to be. I can imagine that I wouldn't want to listen to it too often, better to save it for one big evening when you can really appreciate those sick and creamy beats, exactly like Fear Factory without woeful vocalisations and shred guitaristry. Also Techno experience was certainly enhanced by having mates around who were getting (fucking) into IT.. Love It.. Have It..
Cheers Tom for a swell night

Choice Quotes (not mine)

Matt, Tom and Howard pre-club (?)


Sam does her best Gene Simmons impression (too much Rock School perhaps)

Peace Out
