Delete Yourself @ Bardens Boudoir 24th August

August 25, 2006


Last night I went down to hip venue Bardens Boudoir in lovely Dalston to see The Presets and Oh No Not Him (aka Michael J Coxx) play with dj support from young turks Skull Juice at Delete Yourself.

We got there a few songs into On No Not Him’s set but I was immediately impressed by the bass heavy crunchy hip hop beats coming out of his laptop – The kid has quite a stage presence too, not at all flustered by the gathered masses awaiting The Presets, he even took to some crowd baiting during songs which was most amusing. Particular highlights were You’re Just a Dick, Masculine Hygiene and his finale, a smart rework of a well known r n’ b song that escapes my memory right now.

Check On No Not Him on Myspace and also read his amusing blog

(I’m hoping to get a interview with Oh No Not Him, so check back for future biggles ups)

After a brief hiatus, The Presets took to stage amidst rapturous applause from the assembled slutty fringes and skinny jeans. Having only heard their 2003 EP Blow Up, I wasn’t sure what to expect from them live. Certainly I was not dissapointed, their spazzdancefagrock translated perfectly to the intimate basement venue. The Australian duo put on a extremely sweaty performance for well over an hour, even working a touch of Da Funk into one of their songs.

SkullJuice took to the decks to see the night out, laying down some dancefloor heat, unfortunately It was past my bedtime so I had to leave

Props to Modular Records and Alt-Delete for putting on a good show what what!

Oh No Not Him releases his debut single on the 2nd of October on Natural Shy Records

The Presets are currently on some rather large tour in major cities throughout the world, check their myspace for details and get their debut album Beams here
