Wild Mood Swings Halloween Special, Shibuya Echo 10/31/2010
Who’s that eerie ghoulish ponce? Why it is I, Grant McGaheran, fresh from DJing at another wild, wild Wild Mood Swings bash, this time at the fairly crepuscular Shibuya Echo (fake blood in the lavs!).
I played these rekkids. Can you spot any tenuous Halloween links?
Vincent Price – My Soul Is An Enchanted Boat
The Human League – Almost Medieval
Sly & The Family Stone – Trip To Your Heart
R. Dean Taylor – There’s A Ghost In My House
Bar Kays- Holy Ghost
Abikyokan – Demon’s Door
France Gall – Frankenstein
Christine Pilzer – Dracula
Devon Irons – Vampire
The Pink Floyd – Lucifer Sam
Funkadelic – Miss Lucifer’s Love
Can – Full Moon On The Highway
Magazine – Because You’re Frightened
John Cale – Macbeth
Depeche Mode – Shake The Disease
Pet Shop Boys – Heart
Momus – The Hairstyle of The Devil
Also rocking the decks were (top to bottom) Timebred (completely horrifying in Jason mask), Jake (Christian Death), Mu-tan (Human League but cuter), Yukari (steaming hot afro lady), Craig eee (masked pierrot) and Special K (disturbingly real vampire, sadly not pictured – I had to leave early for me train)
They all played some awesome tunes. Cheers to them, and to the large number of jet-setting strangers who piled in as the night progressed to cut a rug on the sticky carpet and be amazed by my 315 yen children’s wizard cape.
