a little cool for Christmas?

What was it all about then?

A one-off night of remixed indie alternative music. bangers & mashed are putting taste back on the Christmas platter with tantalising tracks served with spicy beats to savour for the year to come. Check out the tasters.

Dance flavouring indie, re-styling retro with an appetising anarchic attitude. Blending guitar-edged indie grooves with electro textures, a sprinkling of cheesy pop, and breakbeat sauteed to taste. Mmm nice...

So you missed it?

Well unfortunately recording the night didn't pan out so no online playback - sorry. A shame especially considering the overall success of the night.

A big shout, hugs an kisses to all who attended on such a cold 'n' miserable night.
bangers & mashed only expected (read hoped for) between 20 and 100 people for the low-key event and were truly surprised at the excellent turnout.

A repeat event has been requested but such occasions are truly one off's. Well maybe later in the year in a slightly different form perhaps?

So what's next?

Further developments should be posted here later in the year. A few new re-mixes and a new look too.

Until then the bangers & mashed team wish you a new gear year. Keep yer ears awake and let yer mind wander.

Bangers & Mashed would like to thank:

Matt Senuik
For taking time out to come up from London and dj his electro indie set.
Andy Simmonds
For dumping his home turf of Bristol and showing us how it's done breakbeat stylie. Nice one Andy.
Nilaesh
for smiles, boundless enthusiasm and finally using cd's (laptop next dude!)
Dave Bissell
For kiting the yard out and the mashed-up indie set. By the way, Dave plays indie on Fridays at the light bar.
Mark Stacey
For making his better half look good and us look even better. A damn good Dorchester reunion this year fella.
Mike Foskett
For dance mixing the re-mixes, organising, chasing tail, and still getting the job done to schedule.
Ben Spence & Ian Brown
Respectively for the poster and flyers. How about a site design guys? Er guys? Guys?
The Hogshead
For the cool 'n' friendly staff, and the management for letting us loose on the place.
