IMG_1679The Issue Nine Launch was a total success. Thanks to everyone who was able to make it along. After some concerns about the event selling out, the persistent and the patient were rewarded as we were able to get quite a few people in on the night. Very special thanks to Virginia and her team of ninja door girls who kept the riff raff away and made sure only the most delicious and well ticketed were able to get their way inside.

The Bird was the perfect venue. I liked the way people used the courtyard area like its a backyard and you can’t help but feel like you’re at the best house party of the year when you hang out there. Look up and you are reminded that you’re right smack in the middle of town look down and you’re at your best mate’s house without a care in the world. Let’s hope the Bird keeps that feeling.

Inside The Bird it was cooking! Right from DJREKAB’s first set you could feel it building. A little shower of rain just brought more steam to the mix and when TA-KU got up with his crew of vocalists and his own special tricks, it was damn hot in there.

“Curve ball” Macliver sure knows how to mix it up, just when you thought the night was going to be all beats THE SCOTCH OF ST JAMES injected some whiskey bottle rock and roll swagger into the event.

The big set from the CUT & PASTE SOUND SYSTEM ripped (yeah yeah I know I’m hardly impartial) and by that time The Bird was getting sweaty like a London or Melbourne club, you know those down the lane, round the back corner and down the stairs kind of places that every person who comes back from holidaying in either place pines about for months  afterwards. Yes.

We hope you has as much fun as we did.

Thank you for supporting Cut & Paste :)

    Cut & paste sound system should stick to making dvds and half assed street press, no one wants to see that your mediocre at djing aswell, give up!

    Thanks for taking the time comment James. However there are no plans at this stage for anyone to, as you suggest “give up”.

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which
    webhost you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different
    browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a honest price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!
