Harangue the DJ _ Interview with Surgeon
Taken from the Guardian Guide on Saturday (26th June 2012) – by Sam Richards
(as you’ll see.. Tony has a good sense of humour!!)
The industrial techno stalwart and Dynamic Tension man empties the contents of his psychic record bag.
THE TRACK I’LL BE OPENING MY NEXT DJ SET WITH:
LINK _ John Coltrane – Psalm
It all depends whether I’m going to mix into the previous DJ’s last track or not. This is a really good way to wipe the slate clean.
THE TRACK I ALWAYS PLAY TO RESCUE A DANCEFLOOR:
LINK _ Traxmen – Wet Floor
Some old, raw Chicago house will bring things back again for sure.
THE TRACK THAT CURRENTLY GETS THE MOST REWINDS:
LINK _ Lone – Rapid Racer
After a few hours of deep, mental techno, this always raises the roof.
THE TRACK I’D PLAY AT MY AUNTIE’S WEDDING:
If this fails, you’re in trouble. A much better choice than the inevitable Uptown Girl by Billy Joel..
THE BEST TRACK BY MY FAVOURITE NEW ARTIST:
LINK _ Blawan – Coronation
Jackin’ energy = dancefloor destruction.
THE TRACK I WISH I’D SIGNED TO MY LABEL:
Cruelly kept from the No.1 spot by Englebert Humperdinck.
THE IDEAL FESTIVAL TRACK:
100% guaranteed hands-in-the-air massive tune.
THE TRACK I’D PLAY TO SHOW OFF MY ECLECTIC TASTES
LINK _ Chumbawamba – Tubthumping
THE TRACK THAT GOT ME OUT OF BED THIS MORNING:
Never fails to get me out of bed in the morning.
THE TRACK I WISH I’D NEVER PLAYED:
LINK _ Perfume – Game
I played this a few years ago in Japan for a laugh, but it went down like a lead balloon. I realised afterwards that it was the equivalent of a Japanese DJ playing a Spice Girls song in their set at a UK gig.
THE TRACK I’D LIKE TO PLAY AT SUNSET IN IBIZA:
This is so epic at any time of day, but at sunset in Ibiza – can you imagine that?
THE TRACK THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A CROSSOVER HIT:
LINK _ Coil – Going Up
Haunting remake of the theme from Are You Being Served? This would always be in the pop charts in my world.
Thanks to Ant for the heads up 🙂
