Right I have been tasked with doing an alternative/goth disco next Saturday. The lovely lady organizing it would love me to just play The Cure for 3 hours but that’s certainly not happening. As I was a white socked soul boy for most of the 80’s and 90’s I need some pointers. The Smiths, Depeche Mode, Joy Division, New Order all sorted but would like some advise with the Industrial and Goth side of things. I want to keep the punters dancing so nothing too depressing. Any suggestions gratefully received.
I must have been drunk (again) but I’m doing a St Patrick’s Day themed disco next Saturday night. Any suggestions for tunes that are not U2 or Thin Lizzy that a bunch of over 40’s can cut a rug to? The fiddle de dee stuff won’t go down too well. I might get away with House of Pain and Dropkick Murphy’s once the cut price Guinness has worked its magic. £1.50 a pint so should get messy! Surprise me please!
