    How's the craic? I've being DJing at a couple of indie disco's in Galway for just over a year and despite all the great music that's come out in that period of time I'm still getting plagued to play Smells Like Teen Spirit and Killing In The Name Of. Band's like The Libertines, Raveonettes, BRMC, Interpol, Hot Hot Heat, The Rapture and Yeah Yeah Yeah's still get a very mixed reaction and there seems to be a disturbing number of Guns N Roses fans out there. I was just wondering is it the same story all over the country? Also what song's do you wish that your local indie DJ would play but never does.

    Good question. I like to hear a bit more of Embrace in indie clubs, fair enough they are a bit commercial to listen to, but that's often a good thing in discos, "Save Me" or "You're Not Alone" perhaps. Also, I'm an avid fan of REM but all you ever here is "Stand" or "Shiny Happy People". How about "What's The Frequency, Kenneth?" And no one seems to play The Cure anymore, "Why Can't I Be You?" would be class. Other than that, clubs should play more of the FLaming Lips and The Charlatans. Q2

    Hasn't the whole concept of an "indie" disco been made a little obsolete by bootleg culture? The lines between the mainstream and the underground are becoming more than a little blurred these days.

    My tuppence worth: REM - Radio Free Europe, Finest Worksong, The One I Love Blondie - Hangin' on the Telephone ( OK perhaps not strictly "indie" but it rocks ) Soundgarden - Spoonman, Black Hole Sun, My Wave Foo Fighters - Christ, where do I start ? Actually, ANYTHING by the Foos rocks. Pearl Jam - see Foo Fighters Sugar - Anyone remember Bob Mould's Sugar ? Their first album, Copper Blue, is a masterpiece. If I heard " A Good Idea " at an indie disco I'd cum in my pants.

    I love "Copper Blue" - I only ever listen to it when I am in work with a hangover. If that doesn't blow the cobwebs off, nothing will. Weekender is a top tune too. For me, I'd just like to see a lot less of the indie lite stuff you generally get i.e. losts of REM, The Cure, Happy Mondays etc etc - it all just leaves me cold I've heard it so much. And don't even get me started on that Deliite song.....

    Dromed, despite what hillbilly says, its interesting to read your opinion. I like your playlist, however it kind of sums up my point about post-bootleg culture(By the way when I refer to bootlegs I am referring to soulwax style cut-n-paste mashups not unnoficial live recordings). The whole nature of underground music has changed, the kids with their laptops have created a brave new world where Donna Summer has equal validity to Nirvana. Indie elitism and careerism are being broken down and being replaced with something thats more inclusive and fun. New Order, Gang of Four, Grandmaster Flash etc. have being trying to lead us down this path for years, but only now are the rest of us are catching up. To sum up; if the crowd is a bunch of boring puritans who just want to sulk to Teen Spirit and little else, maybe its time to remove the "indie disco" label and attract a more fun crowd instead.

    Hey, leave the Stand boys alone!!! They deserve to be played. Ask any of The Frames what they were like in New Jersey a couple of weeks ago!!! Wait for their new record which should be in Ireland after christmas!! Brilliant, I can't wait!!!!!
