In April, 1 year to the day it was released (well, roughly!) we decided to delete the Norave compilation from the Little Rock archives. So if you haven't got it by now it's waaay too late. Though there might yet be a miraculous rebirth via the medium of Last FM. To celebrate we had a birthday party / wake at Stereo, with the mighty Ultimate Thrush, special guests Blood Moon from Manchester and a techno set from Line Idle that was the highlight of the night. Norave is not over though - keep your eyes and ears peeled for volume two.

Again with the Norave! Sometime around March or April we managed to get a bunch of Norave acts to remix the first single from Franz Ferdinand's current album "Tonight" for the unofficial "Ulysses NORAVE Rmx EP". This has been sent to Domino, but I think it is unlikely to see the light of day in an official form soon. Though that would be nice of course, even though the music is wonky beyond belief! Here's what is on it:
FRANZ FERDINAND "Ulysses" Gatr Remix
FRANZ FERDINAND "Ulysses" Fox Gut Daata Reshuffle
FRANZ FERDINAND "Ulysses" Remix by EYES
FRANZ FERDINAND "Ulysses" Niallist DiscoDubb

We did a monthly residency in the city center venue STEREO this year too, but owing to the Credit Crunch and the dwindling numbers of people going out to clubs at the moment we have decided to cut it back to every 2 to 3 months. Perhaps selling an event as being an "anti-party" and having a non-smiling smiley face as our logo doesn't help - but hey since when has doing something easy been equal to doing something good? It did lead to this rather nice write up in the List:

Shout out to Kris and everyone at Wasabi Disco - this is the first ever gig I played outside of Glasgow! Of course, it's only in Edinburgh, which is just down the road, but still it means I get to travel. For all of 45 minutes. WD is a great night, in the wicked little venue Sneaky Pete's, which is free to enter and hard to leave. It was pretty busy on the night I played, which was a surprise, and most of the punters stayed on the dancefloor for most of my set. Result!
