DJ Gutter @ ContextIf you happen to be in the Easton area of Bristol tomorrow night, you might like to wander into The Black Swan pub where you'll probably find DJ Gutter slumped in a dark corner, a half-finished pint of Tennants Extra in one hand and a crumpled packet of Lambert & Butlers in the other; his eyelids propped open with matchsticks as he grimly attempts to stay conscious through to the bitter 5AM finish of Subloaded II. That's him on the left, snapped at Context last month, and no, he isn't trying to look like the new Dr. Who - that's just the way he dresses. DJ Gutter has kindly given us his latest mix, which was cobbled-together last night using two cheap 12-year-old turntables, a domestic CD player and an iPod, recorded 'live' direct to harddisc with the minimium of digital post-production. It would've been longer, but then Mrs. Gutter, driven to distraction by the infernal grimey racket, stormed into the room and demanded he cease and desist immediately before she rammed those fucking records down his fat throat. Perhaps he should've broken out Wham's "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" to placate her - '80's chart-pop being just about the only form of music that DJ Gutter and his wife are able to enjoy together.
