  • Bill Brewster @ Halcyon, Sheffield 27/05/05

    Friday 27 May 2005 @ Halcyon Bar
    113-117 Devonshire Street
    Sheffield
    S3 7SB

    To help celebrate one year since it's snazzy re-launch, Sheffield's Halcyon Bar proudly presents a 3-hour set from our very own ladyboygrimsby, aka..

    Bill Brewster
    Resident DJ @ Fabric, co-author of 'Last Night A DJ Saved My Life' and 'How To DJ (Properly)'

    From Ministry Of Sound's biography:

    Originally a chef, a football pundit (co-editor of fanzine When Saturday Comes) and record collector, Bill began DJing in earnest in the late 80s while living in New York and running DMC’s US operation. He cut his teeth playing ‘Low Life’ warehouse parties in Harlem and the East Village, and anyone hearing Bill today can see how these New York ‘roots’ shine through. For eclecticism, surprises, amazing unique music and sheer long-haul dedication to the dancefloor, Bill’s your man.

    His other life is as a writer. Together with long-term pal Frank Broughton, Bill is author of the definitive history of DJing, Last Night A DJ Saved My Life, and has contributed his acid Grimsby wit and encyclopaedic knowledge of music to just about every dance rag there is, not to mention The Guardian, Independent and Mail On Sunday. The Brewster-Broughton double act unveiled their latest hit in 2002 with the uniquely sardonic DJ manual How To DJ (Properly).

    He’s an industry insider, having brought Twisted Records to the UK and launched his own highly successful deep house label Forensic. In his spare time he is often found in the studio, either with Fat Camp partner, Theo Noble, re-editing old disco, funk and rock records; or producing original music.

    As his hero Kid Creole would say, 'Annie I'm not your daddy.'

      Who? the warm-up DJ...?
      If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.
