Yoodoo Voodoo, Friday 11 May

Mondo Scuro presents Yoodoo Voodoo - with DJs GK Machine, DJ Dandy and Suzie Hipsnake - on Friday 11 May. This was intended as the launch night for a monthly residency but unfortunately, due to problems with the management (the events co-ordinator and the management fell out resulting in the management telling us "we're not mainstream enough" - ha ha - did they not hear me play Hot Chocolate last time??), so this night, instead, is a one-off event and will be the last Mondo Scuro/Yoodoo Voodoo until a new venue is found. We hope it'll be a busy one though so would be nice to see you.

For those who haven't been, you can expect electro-disco, mutant punk, turbo-dub, acid rock, cyber-elastic sex music, brain-slicing techno riddims, some heads down, no nonsense voodoo funk, a laptop set mixing things like The Cramps, Little Annie, The Slits and Can all over a driving, psychedelic rhythm backing and, most of all, the main result you'll get will be some wild-style party music and, as ever, a 'marvellously pleasant' atmosphere.

See the flyer for more info!!!

YooDoo Voodoo, Friday 9 March

Greetings Vibration Nation, we have something good in store for you!! We got some hip gyration for the trip generation!! Get ready!!

After a long hiatus Mondo Scuro is at long last rearing its ugly head once again. Maggie May's basement (formerly Bluu Basement) will house a one-off night under the name Yoodoo Voodoo.

As well as GK Machine & DJ Dandy spinning their usual smorgasbord of aural love juice, 70s acid casualty "Absent" Davie Starjuice will be making a rare appearance in public after finally getting to grips with his latest piece of 21st Century technology - the laptop computer. For him that's a major leap into the future. Gone are his two drummers and ageing synth modules. Now it's just him and the machine. And his rhythms will rock.

Doors open 11pm, end 3am, price is £5. See the flyer below for more details.
Don't be square.....be there!!!

Love and confusion,
Mr. Dark
