“Become all-knowing, my beard so very long and flowing…”

I asked some friends to chime in with requests, and there’s a number of them here: Underworld, Severed Heads, Celebrate The Nun, L.A. Style, and Q-Feel. I’m always happy to take requests providing you understand the format.

The version of Greater Reward is my own re-edit, done several years ago with Tom Ellard’s blessing. Severed Heads is a very important group for me, to the point that I have the cover of Bulkhead tattooed on my arm.

Mmm… Skyscraper I Love You is dedicated to the one and only Skyscraper, Mr. Mark D. Hurte. The genderfuck drag he was doing in Lexington in the ’80s and ’90s would be right at home on RuPaul’s Drag Race today.

“James Brown is dead!”

I started my first regular paying DJ gig in May of 1992. In the six months prior, techno had completely overtaken the clubs, so I cut my teeth working these songs to a live crowd.

For several months I’ve been mentioning to friends and promoters that I’d love to do a “Where Were U In ’92?” party, and some momentum is building. In just a couple of hours I’ll be spinning a set of classic techno at Dope, a monthly club night in the Castro.
