The Daily Moustache: The Last Day!


The Daily Moustache is coming to a close and for this I am a little sad. I have loved receiving e-mails of Moustachio's and taking pictures whilst out and about. I am certain I will continue to do this though and keep the Moustache gallery alive. I hope that all your Moustache growing endevours have raised a lot of money for a really good cause. Movember has caused quite a stir and it is so much fun. There have been loads of Movember events and Moustache action going on all over the globe and this can only be a good thing. It shows that amazing things can develop from little ideas. For anyone that has an idea I recommend nuturing it and developing it, you just never know.

I am still upset that I am unable to grow a Mo' for the occasion but being a girl its a little difficult for me. I had one photoshopped in and I LOVE it. Thank you Rees, this was an amazing birthday present. As its the last day of the Moustachio action I have several Mo's I want to upload.

Girlies rockin' the Mo'

Fiasco


I have wanted to write something about Fiasco since I popped my Fiasco cherry in February this year. I spotted that DJ Heather was playing in Glasgow, at Fiasco's 2nd birthday and couldn't believe my luck. I knew that whoever was putting on a party like this must have something special going on and I was intrigued to know more. I found out the details, did some investigating and found that Fiasco looked like a little gem in terms of underground house music on the UK scene. I have rarely seen other clubnights putting on such great underground house music here and really wanted to go along and see what it was like and see if it was as good as it sounded.



Ed Marco in action


Fiasco was started back in January 2008 at the Brunswick hotel and initially started off with Ed Marco and a big bunch of friends partying in a club, soon growing to friends of friends and within a few months had grown massively (to knowing less than half the people there). Born out of a passion for Chicago house music and a good party. Fiasco, was filling a huge hole as there were no other jackin house nights in Glasgow at the time. After a visit to Chicago in July of that year and going to a clubnight called Grizzled (now known as Sizzled) run by The Sound Republic, Ed was impressed by Grizzled and their formula for a good party and worldwide presence in the underground house music industry and returned with visions of making Fiasco one of the best nights in the world's Chicago house scene. To be known for bringing the biggest DJ's in the business to Glasgow for intimate monthly parties. Having visited Fiasco in February for their 2nd Birthday, I would say that he and the Fiasco crew are certainly achieving just that. Fiasco, now resides at the intimate home of Bacchus, in the heart of the Merchant City and has brought some of the finest names in the underground House scene to Glasgow and continues to do so. It takes place the first Friday of every month and truly is one not to be missed. It is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and get your party feet dancing! This month Miss honey Dijon will make her Fiasco debut.



Each month a guest DJ brings their own individual style of underground house music to Fiasco whether it’s jacking house, deep, tech or a combination to help make Fiasco the unique night that it is.


Previous guests have included: Jason Hodges, Heather, Mes, Phil Weeks, Inland Knights, Sonny Fodera, Chuck Daniels, Kinky Movement, Gramophonedzie, Monoman, Craig Hamilton, Tommy Largo, Soydan, Giom, Marcoloco, Chris Harris, John Larner, Dominic Martin, Jay West, Massimo DaCosta & the party’s name sake, Johnny Fiasco (to name but a few), as well as a long list of local DJ talent including Sunday Circus, Sub Club’s Harri & Domenic and DJ Q.


What really shines through when speaking to Ed is his pure passion for the music and vision to take Fiasco forward. He got into the House sound after hearing a DJ Sneak Kinky Trax Mix in 1996 and he was hooked. Not long after, he was discovering the likes of Derrick Carter and Mark Farina, all playing a major part in his house roots. It is not only his passion that keeps Fiasco going BUT the passion of all those involved. It wouldn't be possible without the help and input of every Fiasco crew member and each crew member contributes something to the smooth running and continuation of Fiasco whether its Marketing ideas, flyering, graphic design, web design or energy and enthusiasm.


Some of the DJ’s at the Fiasco Secret Location Party 2009

In the photo from left to right are Chris Mac, Lach, Esteban Carracas, Giom, MAD Mike (Groove Armada MC), Tommy Largo, DJ Soydan, Pete Baker, Ed Marco & Marcoloco


Fiasco is built from a lot of love, hard work and passion as well as awesome tunes, DJ's, residents, party people and atmosphere, that is, what makes Fiasco stand out against a lot of other clubnights. It is made possible by a team of people that share the passion for great music and sharing that with others. It keeps the night intimate, up close and personal and different in many ways to a lot of clubnights being put out these days. Does that make me sound really old? ha or maybe just sick of going to a lot of churned out medioca clubnights with people more concerned with how they look than the tunes being played. Fiasco was certainly a lot different and had a lot more heart and soul, like a very welcoming community, all about having fun and a good time. No posers, just good music, dancing and smiles.


Each Fiasco event is broadcast live on a worldwide radioshow Chicagohousefm.com and hosted by Ed, so if you can't make it along to the night then you can always tune in.

There is also a Podcast available on the Fiasco website. You'll find it just under the 'shout outs' section on the homepage.


Look out for Fiasco's Secret Location Parties too. They are held at the end of May and include a huge line up of international DJ's, as well as loads of local talent being taken to a secret Location and partying for hours to fine house music. Sounds good, aye?

Keep your eyes peeled on the website for more details.

http://www.fiascoevents.com/



I asked Ed Marco a few more questions to find out more about the Fiasco crew, his musical influences, the passion behind such an incredible night and what keeps it going.


Who are the crew members now and what are the roles?

The crew consists of myself and a bunch of like-minded friends who all have a mutual love for House Music.
Pete and Carla are two of the backbones of Fiasco. If they weren’t involved, the night definitely would not be where it is today.
As well as being a resident DJ, Pete is the man behind the flyer and website design. He is constantly working on updating the site and designing the flyer for the next event.
Carla is a constant source of marketing idea’s, we are always brainstorming and working together to come up with new ways to market the brand.
Ali and Steph are also both regulars behind the Fiasco decks, and along with Brook, Rachel and Lorna, their behind the scenes involvement is vital to the smooth running of every one of our events.


What has been your favourite Fiasco night? If its at all possible to name one.......

To be honest I have quite a few favourites but if I had to pick, I'd say the Secret Location Parties stand out a mile. For the last three years, at the end of May we put up a huge line up of international guest DJ's as well as a long list of local talent for a unique party in a secret location. All in all it's a mammoth 11 hour session with a variety of different house sounds throughout the day. I love it.


Who are your top musical influences?

I have always loved a wide variety of music. Stuff like Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Jamiroquai, The Beegee’s and loads more.

When I was young I was really into heavy metal and hip-hop. The likes of Snoop, The Beastie Boys and Public Enemy were up there along with Metallica, Pantera and Sepultura. I still love hip-hop but the metal days have faded. I think the combination of chunky beats and hip-hop samples have definitely influenced my current style of house music.


Top tunes of the moment?

It’s hard to pick a top 5 because they all suit a different time and place but here are 5 that I’ve being playing a lot recently:

Scrub The Tub by Edwin Oosterwal

But a Butt by Spedro

Boom by South of Roosevelt

Get Funky by Pirupa

Boom Chaka Chaka by Jazzmopper J





Top tunes of all time?

Again it’s hard to pick a top 5 of all time but here are a few faves that pop into my mind:

Life is Changing by Cricco Castelli

Get Down wit Yo Bad Self by Ra-Soul

Horny Hustle by Twisted Pair

Flat Funk by Flat Funk

Can’t Hide From Your Bud –DJ Sneak




What keeps you going? and inspired to keep Fiasco Running?

Mainly, it’s the fun we have at the events and the fact that we're bringing a different sound to the city. We get messages of support on our website and our facebook group from people all over the world, saying how much they appreciate what we are doing and how much they'd love to make it to a Fiasco someday. It's great to know that people enjoy what we're doing here. We've now had over 16,000 plays of the mixes on our website which we are obviously really happy about. People regularly travel from all over the UK and Europe to be at Fiasco, which makes us feel like we are contributing something special to the Glasgow Clubbing scene.


A Big Thanks to Ed Marco for answering my questions!


Now it's time to go and pop your Fiasco cherry. I lost mine and have never looked back.

In my opinion Fiasco is a little Gem and anyone that gets the chance should get themselves up to a Fiasco event soon. It is SO worth it! A guaranteed good time. Other events to look out for is Fiasco’s 3rd birthday party. Fiasco will be celebrating its 3rd birthday next February and will be welcoming the return of one of their favourite guests. I can’t wait to know who! The guest will be announced soon, so keep checking the Fiasco website for details.


As I write I am listening to Miss Honey Dijon, who will be the next guest at Fiasco on the 5th November 2010.

Movember!


So its the 1st of November. Where did that come from? Time seems to pass so quickly sometimes. I am looking forward to many things that November will bring and I always like the movement to a New Year.

One thing that November does bring is Movember. For all those of you that haven't heard of it or aren't quite sure what it is I will quickly explain or you can click this and it'll tell you everything you need to know. Movember is basically to raise awareness of cancers affecting Men like prostate cancer. The idea is to start clean shaven on November the 1st and for the entire month grow a Moustache. I know for some guys this is probably a challenge in itself. The Moustache becomes a ribbon for mens health . The funds raised go to the number one cancer affecting men, prostate cancer.

Keep up to date with all the Movember action here.


Movember brings with it a lot of events around the world. Check here for updates of events.
I personally just wish I could grow a moustache. Some would say that I can but I beg to differ as I'm a girl and it just is too much of a challenge for me. I will be looking out for amazing tasches on the streets in the next month and they will take pride and place in the Moustache gallery that I will create.

Lets Celebrate the Moustache in Movember, whether its dodgy, pimpin, hitler- esque, indie, porno....I would love to see them. Send them to boombangblamblog@gmail.com.
Its true guys look better with a tasche. There is just something a little bit sexy about them! and there is the tasche rash too.
