The Electricity Club’s appearance on Dave Charles’ evening show on Sunday 15th April 2012 proved to have worldwide interest, attracting listeners from the USA, Canada, Kenya, Sweden, Finland and Germany as well as the UK.
TEC’s Chi Ming Lai talked to Dave about the formation of The Electricity Club and its forthcoming live event TEC002 featuring MARSHEAUX, DJ RUSTY EGAN and FOTONOVELA on Sunday 29th April 2012. Indeed, Dave took great delight in spinning MARSHEAUX’s Dream Of A Disco as well as several other TEC friendly numbers such as NIKONN’s remix of Video Games by LANA DEL REY, OMD’s Messages, SHOCK’s R.E.R.B. (as produced by Rusty Egan and Richard Burgess), CURXES’s new single Haunted Gold and VILE ELECTRODES’ Play With Fire. In addition, other acts that have featured on The Electricity Club like DEPECHE MODE, GARY NUMAN, TENEK, HOWARD JONES and VILLA NAH were played during various phases of the show.
With Dave Charles steering the ship of organised chaos, the pair also gleefully passed comment on the varied musical diet of rock and dance being played plus the rather unintentionally funny TV clip of three singers from The Philippines performing a medley of OMD’s hits in front of a bemused Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys as part of their promotional trail for their recent gig in Manila!
Chatting about the electronic music scene in general, the show turned out to be a rather entertaining couple of hours and judging by the feedback that’s been received so far, thoroughly enjoyed by those tuning in…for those who were unable to listen in live, edited highlights from the show are now available to listen to on The Electricity Club’s audio player at the top of the page for a limited period.
