Yes, it's that time of year again and we're back with our 7th New Year Party at The Glasgow School of Art.
Once again we are confident that this year will be the best yet as we don't see the point of doing them unless each one is better than the last. (I know we say this every year but every year it is true).
On the main floor, JD Twitch and JG Wilkes will be hosting proceedings (with a little help from Mac). There will also be special live appearances from ZONGAMIN who took the roof of the Sub Club when they played earlier in the year. As it is a party we wanted to put on tried and tested guests so we are also welcoming back JUSTUS KOHNCKE who gave an outrageously entertaining performance at The Black Rabbit Whorehouse earlier this year.
Downstairs, we will once again be handing over the Vic Bar (with an enhanced soundsystem and super production) to DJ Mingo go. Alongside her will be Rory Philips from Trash in London and the mysterious Ronnie Danzig. Expect the unexpected.
This year we have spent much of the year touring the planet and thus the free cd is a recording of us playing in Brussels in November 2005. The cd is titled 'Banging in Belgium' and will only be available as a free giveaway to ticket holders on the night of the party. So please remember to pick up your copy at the end of the night.
The night will run from 10pm until 5am (approx.) and tickets will be 25 pounds. We are very aware that 25 pounds is an awful lot of money but unlike other clubs who hike up their prices for Hogmanay and count the cash rolling in, we spend a giant pile of money on production making sure the Art School looks out of this world, and, as all the costs we have to pay get hyper inflated at Hogmanay, we are pretty much stuck between a rock and a hard place on this issue. The 25 pounds will however include ALL booking fees so there will be no hidden extra costs when you come to buy your ticket (oh, except for the 1.20 postage and packing if you are lazy and buy them online and get them posted to you). Tickets are available from The Art School, Monorail records in Mono at Kings Court and from Shoptimo on the Optimo website. Tickets will be available from Saturday December 3rd.
We look forward to seeing you there!
