If he doesn't, maybe he could on 08:08:08 to celebrate 20 years of 808?

I thought I'd be a pussy and book accommodation, I'm staying at the Bridge hotel (with no toilet or shower) :-?

This is the final mail out from Wang, anyone fancy a pre drink at the Griffin?

This Saturday 6th October 2007

WANG presents REVIVAL Part II
Seminal Manchester acid house legends Gerald Simpson and Graham Massey perform LIVE together for the first time since 1989.
Utilising only the original analogue hardware machines, Graham and Gerald will be performing a 'back in the day' ultra rare live acid set under the name of

"REBUILD" - A Guy Called Gerald and Graham Massey (808 State).

This is a unique (and very possibly you're only) chance to see two of the founding fathers of the UK dance scene back together, playing live for the first time in nearly 20 years.


As if this wasn't enough for one night, we are also playing host to:

Simian Mobile Disco

Andrew Weatherall

Uncle Buck

Lukey Roots QC

Sidney Le Sarge

Lula & Electro Elvis

Venue is Corsica Studios, Unit 5, Farrell Court Elephant Road London SE17 1LB

It's £10 in advance
Tickets are available online from WARPMART and in person from Sounds of the Universe/Soul Jazz

We will be having a pre-party at the Griffin pub, Leonard street Shoreditch on Saturday from about 8p.m. any tickets left will be available from the DJs there on the night.


Peace and love
Electro Elvis & Lula

Duh, glad you mentioned that, I was assuming the pub would be next door or something. Indeed, it's miles!
Any other meetup suggestions then?

gutted! im not going to be able to make this gig :( :( :( i'd like to say due to unforeseen circumstances, but maybe i should have foresaw that its my ma's 50th birthday on the same day! it's a huge sacrifice but gotta do the loving son bit. if anyone fancies taking a microtrak or something similar to record the gig on that would be great :) or i can loan you guys a laptop to get it straight into pro tools? :)

as sad as it will make me, i expect full report and pics!

That's what I call involving the fans!

Should we bring along a soldering iron and some wire strippers just in case the 2G's don't have all the right cables. :D

On another subject, this place doesn't seem too bad for a drink (based on reviews etc) and it's just a street from the venue: Hampton Court Palace Hotel

Wish I'd know about it earlier, would have been a great place to book a room for that short stagger back at six in the morning. 8)

Any other ideas???? :-?

Seeing they are both Mancs, yes! ;-)

Indeed, that would have been a great hotel. A pub or bar with DJs sounds more inviting, any suggestions, Cockneys?

Agent King is 'avin' it in Las Vegas at the moment. Anyone else? Grant, Rodders?
Also could do with club suggestion for Friday night? Not Fabric as it seems to be a DnB night on Friday.
