Most records never played before, let alone mixed. The sound is more techy than my usual sound so dug out a lot of unplayed vinyls and the mix turned out OK. Not perfect by any means....but OK.

The mix is sort of a follow-on from the "Psychic Psunshine" mix I did for Racket Racket last year.
You can find this latest adventurous musical escapade here.

Having released records on Optimo Singles Club & Related recordings as well as Stuff Records we're extremely pleased to have him do a live set in Nice n Sleazy's basement bunker. It will be loud. It will be lively. And you will dance!

Also, this event will be marking the start of regular KYI events in Nice n Sleazy which we're very much looking forward to. Expect some great guests in months to come all suitably accompanied by the turbo-fuel-injected rock n roll electro voodoo grooves that residents GK Machine and G. Blythe supply in big doses.

kill yr idols
presents a night of electronic noir-tinged serenades and gothic sonatas at
feat. Pumajaw and Fiona Soe Paing
Friday 12 July 2013
The Berkeley Suite
137 North Street, Glasgow
This July, Kill Yr Idols are proudly playing host to the inimitable Pumajaw to present a one-off, one-of-a-kind, special event in the sublime surroundings of Glasgow's Berkeley Suite.
In the depths of the restored 1940s ballroom, amongst the burgundy walls, gilded frames and sleazy interior Pumajaw, aka Pinkie Maclure and John Wills (ex-Loop), preview songs from their forthcoming Edinburgh Festival Fringe show Song Noir (2-16 August 2013) reinventing creepy songs from film noir and gothic cult movies and mixing them with their own style of dark electronica. This special show will include tracks from their 2011 critically-acclaimed album Demonmeowmeow as well as the forthcoming Song Noir (Sept 2013).
“Like some terrifying infant, Pinkie is bewitching as she laments over ominous soundscapes made by spectral John Wills” (This Is Fake DIY, 2012)
“Maclure's extraordinary voice would deliver the greatest Bond theme ever” (The Herald, 2011)
More info and reviews at www.pumajaw.co.uk
Supporting Pumajaw is a true mistress of the dark arts Fiona Soe Paing. This Scottish/Burmese producer and vocalist creates sinister electronic soundscapes from a decaying future that make the Blade Runner soundtrack look like Good Day Sunshine. With her latest EP staying on the bandcamp staff picks list for several months as well as getting a 4-star review in The Skinny this producer's star is most definitely on the ascending.
“...stylish, elegant and sinister...obscure electronica, minimal beats and exotic voice merge seamlessly with animated visuals to evolve into a multi-media artwork” (New Zealand Herald)
“Very, very cool” (Vince Clarke)
In between both sets a suitably seedy soundtrack will be provided by residents GK Machine and Gerry Blythe who continue to plough on monthly with their Kill Yr Idols nights at the Berkeley Suite as well as their respective radio shows, DJ slots and events across the city.
ELECTRIC DARK starts 9pm and will be followed by the (un)usual Kill Yr Idols raw punk disco party in thee subterranean ballroom.
