Information:

Disco Sucks | 25 October | The Lanes
Ft. Bodywork / Admin / Rumpf

Chicago 1979. Disco is in its prime.

Rooted in African-American, Latin and Gay cultures; disco has swept the world. As the mainstream fall in love with it - others had begun to hate it. This hatred culminated in radio DJ Steve Dahl’s anti-disco rally; a rally that called upon all the haters of disco - and who the genre represented - to bring disco records to be burnt; blown-up; destroyed.

As the 50,000 disco-detractors piled doomed records in the middle of Chicago’s Comiskey Baseball Stadium, Dahl shouted "Disco sucks, disco sucks" over the stadium’s speaker system before blowing the records up in an orgy of self-righteous destruction.

40 years on – disco lives on.

Surviving and thriving in the underground from whence it came; disco continues to express itself in every 4/4 kick drum in every club; it is the everlasting rebellion that helps us escape the mundane; it is the unwritten soundtrack that unifies perfect strangers.

We choose cow bells – not dog whistles. We subvert the hate. We love disco and we’re the ones who say: DISCO SUCKS.

Meet your evening's entertainment:

Bodywork - Recently celebrating 5 years of monthly DJ residencies at the Crofters Rights, these heavyweights of the Bristol clubbing scene can certainly pack a disco punch.

∆dmin - From hosting his Slix Disco parties, running his record label/party - Community Disc-Os - to releasing music on Sleazy Beats, Boogie Cafe, Take Away, BoogieFuturo, Omena, Kolour LTD and Better Listen, he's had an incredible rise with plenty more to come.

Rumpf - This bonkers crew of misfit DJs and mad decor scientists will be injecting the weird and wonderful into this late night love affair.
