Mr. Graham Peel of Dolby Anol has been listening to a lot of disco of late, and recommended us this blog for our delectation. We're sure our avid readers will also find it to their tastes.

Last ever R-P-Z TONITE!!!

If you're in the Glasgow area this evening, then get yourselves up the Arty!!

That's the Art School, m'dears. For tonight is the last ever party there by RECORD PLAYERZ.

R-P-Z was started at the Art School in 2002 by our good friend DJ Hushpuppy and the similarly kinky minded DJ Hifi Sean. Since then it has played host to countless great DJs and acts (Midnight Juggernauts, Avenue D, Findo Gask, Miami Horror, Van She) and hosted the Glasgow debut of some band called the Scissor Sisters, It's gone on to be the city's second biggest weekly club night (after you know who). God it really does feel like the end of a certain era, eh? Era of what I don't really know, but change is definitely in the air.

A future Menergy guest DJ Perhaps?

Menergy loves....Full Pupp Records

Prins Thomas' label is churning out some seriously hot Nordic noise at the moment. These are the Kid Zipper faves, including Menergy favourite Magnus International. It's come up o'clock in Oslo.

"Open Invitation" Mix by Teamy and Aylwyn

Damn these straight boys infecting our blog with their homotastic Hi-NRG mixes! Here's another one from Mr Teamy, this time in association with a fella called Aylwyn, who is mega-gay in everything but orientation. Well, no-one is perfect!

Open Invitation Mix by Menergy

1) Alter Ego - Rocker [Italo Dub]
2) Black Devil Disco Club - The Devil In Us
3) The Immortals - Ultimate Warlord
4) Cyber People - Void Vision
5) Divine - Native Love [12" Version]
6) Freddie Mercury - Love Kills [More Oder Rework by The Glimmers]
7) Headman - It Rough [Chicken Lips Dub]
8) Deee-Lite - What Is Love [Holographic Goatee Mix]
9) Yellow Magic Orchestra - Behind The Mask

Menergy Anthem: Ultimate Warlord by The Immortals

This has been played at every Menergy so far to a generally ecstatic reception. I think that qualifies it as a "Menergy Anthem"!

* Note how two Menergy Anthems get mixed together in the Open Invitiation Mix

La Jeté - Le Cage Aux Folles

This isn't a Menergy Anthem yet, but if I have my wicked way it will be!

Horse Meat Disco at Melting Pot

Well, Horse Meat Disco at Melting Pot last night was very busy, very hot, and very fun! HMD residents Jim Stanton and James Hillard came up to plug their new compilation (number two no less) and to bring their gay disco vibes to Glasgow's masses. Pictured above are Horse Meat DJ James Hillard, our pal David Barbarossa (Glasgow's top straight bear) and Menergy resident The Niallist. The new Horse Meat Disco compilation is available on June 21st on Strut Records, and if it's anywhere near as good as the first one, it will be a damn essential purchase for anyone who likes disco or dance music. Here's a little teaser trailer of what is in store:

Menergy Anthem: Triangle Walks (Rex The Dog Remix) by Fever Ray


Fever Ray - she so crazy! Fierce make-up hun.

Lady Gaga parodies

Speaking of La Gag, here's a couple of great parodies of her recent hits. Drag-tastic, natch.

This one is by the ferosh drag diva Sherry Vine, and concerns matters scatalogical.

And this one is by arch satirists Key Of Awesome - the Beyonce girl is super hot!
