If you're on Facebook you can now join the Thisisnotanexit group that has been created:

No poking. Just a nice place to hang out with other Thisisnotanexit fans and friends.
Thanks to everyone who came along to The Macbeth and / or Cargo this weekend - had alot of fun. Had a technology nightmare when my soundcard failed me at Cargo so it was back to the old school with a 100% vinyl set. Here's what I played:

Juan Maclean - Dance With Me (DFA)
Shackleton - Death Is Not Final (Skull Disco)
Woolfy - The Growler (Mindless Boogie)
Unknown - Blow Me Slow (Noid)
Vastkustska Ryggdunkarsallskapet - Mozarella Morning (No. 1)

The Nick Straker Band - Straight Ahead (Firebird)
Wuf Ticket - The Key (Prelude)
Skinny Joey - Area 45 (Mindless Boogie)
ME - RNB Junkie (Golf Channel)
Skatt Brothers - Walk The Night (White Label)

Unknown - Zimbra (Main Mix) (Di Sisco)
Chicks On Speed - Wordyrappinggood (Playgroup Remix) (White Label)
Flash - You Really Got Me (MRC)
Motorcity Drum Ensemble - Raw Cuts 1 (Unknown)
Faceball 2000 - La Patinoire (Live At The Cafeteria Mix) (Versatile)
They Came From The Stars I Saw Them - Signals (Emperor Machine Dub Remix) (Thisisnotanexit)
Front Page Insurance - You Got My Love (Combi Edit)

There was a whole load of negative energy in the DJ booth at Cargo as not only did my laptop fail me, but one of my headphones stopped working, a needle on one of the decks started jumping, and the monitor went as well.....the energy sorted itself after a bit though and the last 45 minutes of my set was a blast - thanks to Go!Zilla for asking myself and Detachments to play!

Detachments were quite simply brilliant at Cargo - 4 gigs in and they are tight as you like. Watch out for their debut single landing in June with remixes from MoscoW and Naum Gabo. Killer.

There's a nice interview with Horton and Naomi from They Came From The Stars I Saw Them on the Big City redneck site:

Check it.

Have a good Easter - hopefully you'll all be going to something Thisisnotanexit related this weekend...

This week sees the Thisisnotanexit flag being flown across various music venues - with They Came From The Stars I Saw Them playing at Buffalo Bar on Thursday evening, Detachments playing at The Good Ship in Kilburn, They Came From The Stars I Saw Them playing in Brighton and Simon A. Carr DJing at the Delete Yourself Disco Special at The Macbeth in Hoxton on Friday, and then Detachments and Simon A. Carr playing at the Go!Zilla Easter special at Cargo on Saturday night. That's your weekend sorted if you live in London!
The record you need to purchase this week is this:
Only 25 pressed so more limited than a very limited thing. Not out OFFICIALLY until April 28th so impress your friends and purchase early.....or just sell on ebay in 12 months when it'll be worth hundreds of pounds.
