Smile when it hertz the most

Dark Past


Quirky was a night I co-promoted with James Bignell and was resident DJ at for almost 2 years from 1993 – 1995. It took place at the Vox club a large warehouse space in Brixton. Acts booked to play included Autechre, Pan Sonic, Laika, Global Communication, Aphex Twin and Hafler Trio. The flyers were done by Paul Nicholson who designed the original Aphex logo and the album sleeve for Selected Ambient Works Vol. II. They were good times.

  1. One of the best clubbing experiences i ever had was at a Quirky night in Brixton – some unknown band called “Autechre” were giving away cds of their debut album on the door and they played before Reload, who had just released the “Collection of short stories” lp.. If memory serves, Locust was playing in the ambient room, and Fluke were hitting their presets in the main room. Quite a night!

  2. Oh man, I was there, probably sporting a Tresor T-Shirt and Pepsi bobble hat . That was actually the very first Quirky prior to my involvement. I think you’re right about Locust and Fluke as well. I think the one after that was Seefeel doing one of their dub sets from ADAT and Autocreation – it was completely incredible. I’m glad someone else remembers. Cheers!
