This week we pay tribute to everyones favourite oversized lesbian and her collaboration with Simon Mobile Disco. Beth Ditto is featured on their track Cruel Intentions - and whilst the song surfaced back in July, it's still on repeat on my ipod so I thought I should share.  Definately one of my songs of the summer, pretty impossible not to dance to this song - which is what good music should be about!

SMD - Cruel Intentions (ft Beth Ditto) [zShare link]

Next up The Golden Filters new track - the massive first single of their upcoming album. We can't get enough of this song - watch out for these guys (and girl), this song will be huge.

Finally - we're in the process of making all new galleries for our photos, so watch this space - there's a lot more where these come from, and they'll be here on the blog first (click the picture below)

2 WEEKS TIL FRESHERS... and the countdown of the best BIG IN JAPAN events is nearing a close... This week we have an extra special one...

Few nights can claim to influence club culture - but DISCO BLOODBATH really has redefined the idea of a good party. Hosting their events in disused warehouses, and rarely holding a party in the same place twice, you get the feeling that you're witnessing something special, somethat that only a select few have the chance to see and experience, and for me - that's what makes a great club night.

We wanted to bring some of that to Bournemouth so in October last year - we brought Damon Martin. We recorded the whole thing and until now, only I have had it on my iPod. I kind of feel that I don't want to share this, but seeing as this is a countdown of my favourite BIG IN JAPAN's - I have to, haha.

So, here it is... In all it's 1 Hour, 33 minutes and 33 seconds glory. Enjoy it... I have been.

Three weeks to go til the students get back... but it's time for me to say goodbye to BIGINJAPAN. I have passed the keys to the kingdom to those lovely girls the plastic hearts, who have helped art school mess up there degrees since 1985.

As a leaving present (don't worry too much, i'll still be runing the blog!) - here are two tracks recorded in 2008 when THE SHOES came to play. They've got new tracks up online - go check them out.

We're excited for a few reasons here at BIGINJAPAN - it's just four weeks until the start of the new school year, and that means the party really starts. To celebrate this, we've given our blog a total makeover, the new website is in the pipelines and should be going live in the next week or so... and...

Over the next four weeks, we'll be recounting our favourite BIGINJAPAN nights - this week, it's Joe and Will ask?

Back in March 2008, we invited two boys by the name of Joe and Will to play live at BIGINJAPAN. Known around London for playing at club nights at  Matter, Trailer Trash, Durrr, Club NME, Boombox - these boys ahve gone from strength to strength since their set last March.
Here are two tracks recorded live, enjoy.
