For anyone not in the know, Optimo is a club night that has been running successfully for the last 12 and a half years in Glasgow. Ran by JG Wilkes & JD Twitch, they have introduced some of the biggest, the weirdest & most wonderful bands of the past and present to an adoring Glaswegian crowd. The music policy has always been eclectic and wherever it has been possible, I've scoured the playlists for music, which over the years has influenced and introduced me and Johnny to a lot of different music.

With regret we have never being able to make the trip up to Scotland to experience the night for ourselves. So have instead relied on seeing the guys DJ'n in London and listening to the various podcasts they have put on the internet over the years.

With the last Optimo being held this sunday in Glasgow, I have posted a great live mix by JD Twitch recorded at the club in 2009. Enjoy...x

Whilst were on a re-edit tip..
Pat Les Stache is a DJ/producer who came to my attention with his Cabana Disco re-edit records, plucking out some really forgotten gems and giving them a new lease of life. On his Blog, American Athlete, he shares his love of all things disco. Recently there has been alot of really nice afrobeat and latin funk tracks going up too.

Lucily for you guys his put up his re-edit collection up on his blog. Here's a couple of my favorites. Check out the page for more and keep a look out for his 12"s.

Pronounced Gay Marveen, this anonymous producer descends from Detroit and describes himself as a creepy, campy, shadowy hedonist.

Over the last couple of years I have been collecting his edits which were first released under 'Secret mixes &; Fixes' and more recently under Gay Marvin. The former includes some great re-edits of Tom Tom Club, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Duran Duran & The Slits.
The later taking more of a camp disco route which includes re-edits of Grace Jones, Sylvester, Shalamar and Divine.

The re-edits are only released on limited vinyl runs, so many an hour has been spent on discogs getting them in from all over the shop!

Thanks to the joys of a USB turntable, I have ripped two tracks by Tom Tom Club and Shamalar for your listening pleasure, enjoy...


A few people have still been asking about the name... Here's a live version of JOCKO HOMO by the almighty Devo. x
