    I... uh... don't actually know his name...
    You see theres a group of us that do a radio show every sunday, always smashing out 'wobble-wobble', and the guy who sorts out the radio bumped into one of the promoters, got chattin and was offered the slots at lafez...

    One thing that you will find that is a bit different in the London crowd as opposed to anywhere else is that they like the DJ to be in fancy dress... Definately do this, it's a London thing.

    I'm goin down RAM this Friday and you can be sure that all the DJ's there will have gone to the effort:
    Andy C will be in his full body furry shark outfit, Shy FX as a pirate, Shimon as the Tin Man, and Hype as Superman

    Dunno what Lynx wears as I've never seen him play out, anyone know?

    I dont wanna go nicking anybody else ideas for costumes, it wouldn't look very professional if I turn up in the same outfit as another DJ. If thats the case I was thinking of going a roland rat, everyone loves roland...

    Yup that's right! He's the only guy big enough to pull off the look...

    IC3 comes with him as Tony the Tiger...

    "Yo, how's that bassline IC?"

    "It's grrrrreeeaaat!"

    Has anyone got any pictures they can post up? I'm not sure everyone knows that we're for real...
