Dom Phillips

Wednesday, 08 October 2008 Interviews
Meet Dom Phillips - a music magazine scribbling legend talking to Update...Dom, you are one of the most important music journalists dance music has ever seen. How did it all begin for you?'I grew up on Merseyside, went traveling and ended up moving to Bristol in 1988. I had done a couple of fanzines. I got really excited about all the dance music stuff I was hearing at clubs and shebeens and on the local pirate radio station, FTP. But nobody was writing about it in Bristol.

Our Girl Rebekah Brings It Back To Our Ears...

Wednesday, 08 October 2008 Interviews
"Thinking the summer was definitely at it's end, the boots and coat have come out - only to find the sun shining again, what is going on? Another reminder the summer's out was the fact I was due back at college for the beginning of my last year. Luckily for me, I am studying music production which is the most fun you can have whilst being at school - perhaps though having a secret ciggy behind the bike sheds could be a fair contender? Buying a new pad and folder, I set off for my first day to fi...

Wednesday, 08 October 2008 Interviews
20 Tips On Being A Door Whore1. Get some drag. There is nothing worse than wanting to be a drag queen door whore and not having any drag. It doesn't work if you are in man clothes - unless you are a drag king.2. Get the highest pair of heels you can find to wear. Comfort means foook all. One must suffer, and please believe me, one will suffer. Added tip if you are black, make sure your heels aren't too high because when other black people who are straight see you in drag, bitch, you'd better be ...

Dan kicks it off.. - "I always enjoy zipping up to Scotland. People up there really know how to enjoy themselves. Especially the promoters. I've had some of the messiest nights ever with the likes of the Rhumba Club's Zammo who I once piled two hotel beds, the desk and chair, a kettle and all of the bed linen and pillows on top him when he passed out on me. I then left and got a train home. And the Slam boys - too cool for school and musically perfect. However, they have nothing on Ricky Magowan...

Wednesday, 01 October 2008 Interviews
This week, Que Pasa and Mixmag journo Nick Green..."I was in the Canaries about eight years ago where I met a girl at a club around three in the morning. I'd been on the vodka all day and this girl seemed lovely. We danced and started snogging and when the club closed we walked to the beach and sat at the end of the pier doing what young couples do when they are pissed and on holiday. After a few hours the sun came up. It was only then I noticed, horror of horrors, that she had a glass eye. I th...

Mr & Mrs Calamity reveal their stories of disco silliness from years gone by...First up, Dan Prince and his first tale of shame...The Summer of 1999 was a fabulous year for DMC's Club Country company. We put on parties at Space, Eden, Amnesia, Privilege, Pacha, Mambo, The Base Bar and a few cheeky beach specials. However, what will always stick in my mind are the first days of the season. So get ready for a week of, well, just headfuck road shit and disco bedlam on the Balearic isle of bonke...
