Every couple of months I run a 90s party at Goodgod called The Rhythm of the Night. Most of the time it’s 90s dance in the backroom and 90s r&b in the front but I’ve always wanted to do an 90s alt rock party, ever since hearing Nick Catchdubs‘ awesome Radio Friendly Unit Shifter mixes. I even did my own all Australian alt rock high school hits mix in 2012. This weekend The Rhythm of the Night moves the dance to the front bar and fills the backroom with angst and powerchords. It’s the 90s alt rock special!
For the first time we’ve got a live act playing – a genuine 90s live act at that – Swoop! You might remember their 1995 top ten hit Apple Eyes.
I put together a few articles to promote the party, as always they’re a bunch of (hopefully) super entertaining lists.
This took forever to put together and then I found out In The Mix had put out their top 100 Australian dance songs of all time list the day before mine went up. Surprisingly there’s a few tracks on my list that didn’t make theirs!
Pages editor and prince of style Christopher Kevin Au asked me to write him a nu metal article and I did (for the nookie, obviously).
The DJs playing at The Rhythm of Night (Joyride, Ariane, Chux, Shag, G Coo, babygirl and myself) pick their favourite alt jam from the 90s.
Roland from Swoop talks about his favourite things from the 90s – the music, the dances, the food and Tom Cruise.
The Rhythm of the Night is the Saturday night at Goodgod Small Club. RSVP here.
