Pet Hates On The Scene?

Recommended Posts

I have a few but my main one is dj,s who turn up for their spot, do it then go straight home. and also dj,s who only go to venues that they are djing at, they never go out just to enjoy themselves at other peoples venues.BEFORE I GET IN TROUBLE DON,T MEAN ALL DJ,S

I could go on for hours on this subject :unsure:

  • People who walk straigh across the dancefloor in the middle of a tune
  • People who stand and talk in the middle of the dance floor in the middle of a tune
  • Smokers who seem not to be able to read the Nosmo King signs

agreed Mr Darcy those that CAN get out and about should do so whether they are spinning toons or not, if I can get away from work tonight early I'm hoping to get over to the Dukes Head to support Perry and the boys.

Pet hates...bootleggers, promoters who are obsessed with themselves and those that suggest you're a vauxhall conference soul music fan if you don't travel 300 miles every weekend :unsure::lol:

TOTALLY agree, you don,t have to travel miles to hear soul music but it sure is fun and you get to hear the awesome tunes the likes of butch, mick h, keith money,cliff camfield,kitch alex jones ect,ect tunes you would never get to hear locally. mind you fair play some folk just ain,t bothered and thats ok :lol:

Not all DJs are like that.

People that dont read through threads properly on here then put thier penny worth in and get it all wrong.

People that just sit there all night and dont smile, why bother going out.

DJ's who never play anything other than what they'd decided to play before they set off from home. Some play the same spot over and over, with the odd exception tune thrown in.

Alleged DJ's who think it's clever to play some CD/boot/Sevens of a big record in the full knowledge that somebody playing later will have to keep their expensive original in the box.

The fact that there are too many venues meaning that clowns who spend fifty quid on a few bootlegs think they are qualified to be DJ's.

Paul, what's the post code for DKOF? - I got lost last time (Even with Sat Nav!!!) - There's a hate - Getting lost on the way to events...Mind you that became part of the fun!!!

Yep, that's the one, totally agree.

Would add - too many DJs and unimaginative DJs (possibly as a result of the above).

1. People constantly banging on about other people not travelling......like how would they know unless they have fitted some sort of soul tracking device to the accused? :thumbsup:

2. Not a hate as such but can't understand people who never or rarely dance. How do they manage to resist the music so? unsure.gif

3. Anyone not from Northamptonshire. (only joking) :D

Happily, the list would be much longer if I were to list pet likes....... :wave:

In the seventies, quite a few d.j.'s would do one all-nighter then go to the other end of the country to d.j. there. Is there any difference? One Soul Sam was one.

One of the things I dislike about the scene is retards who dont handle records carefully in the record bar area :thumbsup:

Many a time I have found marks on the playing area due to people being careless :angry:

What about standing about too embarrassed to dance because some of us know how ridiculous we look? I wish I could dance, but I'm a Dad dancer no matter how hard I try. I was even when I was 19!

was always taught that listening to something you didn't know what it's all about.. Be nice to have someone like you attending so we can all turn to you and ask "wtf was that" and in return get artist, label and current price thumbsup.gif

Cya next week mate, you never know you may just enjoy yourself :yes:

I have had the piss took out of the way I dance for the last 30 years hasn't stopped me yet.

So don't worry about it just enjoy it. :lol:

My pet hates .

Cliques the ones who don't want you at there even after you spent over 2 hours travelling to get there

People who always putting other people down.

Spending hours and hours trying not to clash , finding a night then 2 weeks before 2 or 3 get added to the same night as yours. sad.gif
