My debut as an alternative DJ began last night thanks to Ronan Leonard who asked myself and David Nelligan to appear as guests for his new Alternative Music Platform (A.M.P.) that runs in The Quad in Cork every Sunday night.
Speaking about what we might possibly play before the show it was revealed that myself and Dave had planned to open with the exact same song from the exact same band ("The Birth And Death Of The Day" by Explosions In The Sky for those interested). Ronan went through the this-switch-does-that routine and we got on with playing some tunes. In the end Dave, going first, got to play EITS.
In my hour I got to stick on the below tunes :
- No Age - "Life Prowler" from Everything in Between
- Sparklehorse - "Sick Of Goodbyes" from Good Morning Spider
- David Byrne & Dirty Projectors - "Knotty Pine" from Dark Was The Night
- Sun Kil Moon - "Lily & Parrots" from Ghosts Of The Great Highway
- Beck - "Scarecrow" from Guero
- Best Coast - "Crazy For You" from Crazy For You
- Elliott Brood - "Write It All Down For You" from Mountain Meadows
- Belle & Sebastian - "Blues Are Still Blue" from The Life Pursuit
- Black Lips - "Starting Over" from 200 Million Thousand
- The Magnetic Fields - "You Must Be Out Of Your Mind" from Realism
- Jenny & Johnny - "Big Wave" from I'm Having Fun Now
- Quasi - "Little White Horse" from American Gong
