Catastrophe! When we got to the Ritzy we were less-than-chuffed to find that the twin CD decks/mixer has been replaced by a stone-age mixer and one - yes, one - totally crap 'carousel' CD player.
Seeing as many of the DJs had brought CD-only tunes, there was much gnashing and wailing of teeth as an emergency CD walkman was hastily located and bodged into the system.
Sadly, Silent Nate (left) only managed a few tunes before DJs Maggot and gergl split the fast-disappearing slots between them.
Maggot's damn funkeee set included James Brown - Give it up or turn it loose, Charles Wright & the 103rd Street Rhythm Band - Express Yourself
Rufus Thomas - Itch & Scratch and The O'Jays - For the love of money.
A close up of the dodgy equipment. The carousel CD player was a moody bugger, often refusing to give up CDs unless asked nicely.
Pinkchukkles whips out his impressive girth of old school 45s.

Look at the suntan on that fella!
Sonik battles with the wobbly equipment. His set included The Sundays - Summertime, Joni Mitchell - Night in the City, Fiery Furnaces - My Dog was Lost but now he's Found,
Charlie Parr - Worried Blues and Joanna Newsom - Peach, Plum, Pear.

The highly mobile Dubversion entertains the lay-deeeees. At least, that's what he thinks he's doing.
